Cheerfuls if you don't know what they are are just an image, drawing or piece of art relating to a team or player alongside usually an encouraging comment. They can be a great way to show humour, wit and also just general encouragement to your favourite players and teams and were always a massive part of the old Proleague lifecycle. In season 3 we had some amazing submissions from a lot of different people and each and every one were shown off on stream. See previous examples here: https://tl.net/forum/brood-war/559094-stpl-season-3-cheerful-submission-thread
The Shinhan Tank Proleague season 4 is about to start this up coming Monday and I thought it'd be great to bring cheerfuls back again. I've updated the template to hopefully make it a bit easier to make cheerfuls - it's just a PNG you can overlay over the top of something else, just make sure it's the right size!
If you want to take part and have your cheerful shown on stream please make one and post in the thread alongside who you're cheering for specifically (be it a team or a player) and I'll show them on stream when they play!
