Staff Tournament Prize Shop Glitched
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 26, 2016, 2:50 pm NST

UPDATE: The prize shop has been removed again.

TNT have accidentally re-activated the prize shop from last year's TNT Staff Tournament - obviously, this is a glitch so DO NOT CLAIM YOUR PRIZES. We won't be linking the prize shop in this post to avoid accidental claims.



Also, don't worry about the total of prize points it says you have - currently it is only counting your score from 1 round of the tournament, so this will not be your final prize points when the shop is actually released.

In other AC news, you may have noticed that using the rank link to view your own or other people's AC scores now has a captcha on it for this year. It is unclear at the moment if this will be staying or not.

Changes to the Altador Cup
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 6, 2016, 2:35 pm NST

You may have noticed this morning that the scores of both Maraqua and Kreludor in the Altador Cup have suddenly dipped. TNT have posted about it on their neoboard:

The Altador Cup Rules Committee has been keeping a careful eye on player performance this year, and it has come to their attention that a disease has been spreading among some participants. Symptoms include multiple personality disorder and temporary feeling of supernatural or magical performance in the games. In order to stop the spread of this plague, we have quarantined the affected players (and their scores), which have initially caused a dramatic upheaval to some overall team scores. We do expect these to stabilize as we move forward and remove quarantined players from the tournament. We will also continue to monitor other teams closely to make sure that all others stay healthy and unaffected by this plague. No other changes have been made to how the results are tallied, so uninfected players can and should keep playing normally for their teams.

In other news, now that round 1 has come to a close, we are excited to announce a new ending to this year's Cup. Round 5, instead of being another round of regular gameplay, will be a Finals Bracket! The top 6 teams will be placed into one bracket to battle it out for the top spot, teams ranked 7-12 in the next bracket, and 13-18 in the final bracket. The stakes are higher than ever to make sure your team performs well throughout the next few rounds. Each bracket will be worth different amounts, so winning the top bracket will earn more bracket points than the top spot in the second bracket, which will earn more than the last.

Game on, Neopians! This is shaping up to be one of the most dramatic Altador Cups yet!


Those of you wanting to read between the lines - the lowered scores are due to cheating on those teams.

The other interesting part is that the final bracket this year will be a finals bracket in the style of old! Although it will still be points that determine the final standings.

Possible AC Trophy Leak
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 6, 2016, 5:06 am NST

The second week of this year's NC element to the Altador Cup, the Insider Experience is yet to begin, but the image for the next area has already been uploaded:



This image features a lot of reused art assets for trophies - but you'll notice in the trophy cabinet there is one we have yet to see.



Have TNT accidentally leaked this year's gold trophy? Or is it just unused art? Let us know what you think in comments!

Altador Cup Begins
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 1, 2016, 12:11 am NST

The Altador Cup is now live! You can now play the 4 games for prize points, and to help your chosen team.

Unlike last year, TNT have updated the schedule so you'll be playing different teams each day compared to last year - also a reminder that game caps have been reduced this year. We'll update you once it becomes clear what those caps are exactly.

In other news, the Insider Experience NC portion of the Cup is now live, with the first area, a Garden Party, available to those who purchase a pass.

Update: The caps known so far are:

Yooyuball: 46 wins
Make Some Noise/Shootout Showdown: 401 games
Slushie Slinger: 86 games

Altador Cup Sign Ups
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on May 25, 2016, 11:19 am NST

If you've been waiting for the Altador Cup countdown to end... well, wait no more! You can now sign up for your team.

NOTE: Sign ups are currently showing the wrong item bonus for some people, but the correct item is awarded in your inventory. The new bonus for 11 years play is:



TNT have posted on the announcements board about some of the changes to this year's Cup. As some expected, daily caps this year will be further lowered, along with rank boundries. They claim there will be other changes - some happening as the Cup goes on. There's also another change this year in that sign ups appear to be closing completely on June 6th (just after the Cup's live play starts).

In the meantime, the NC portion has been updated. We can look forward to the Insider Experience starting on June 1st.

Also updated is the staff tournament page, confirming its return this year - along with the names of two new additions - Gingersnap and AGOG. Presumably there to replace Droplet and Breik.

UPDATE: The new ranks appear to be hidden in the source code for the AC pages. All-Star is now the equivalent of 834 Yooyball wins, 2,500 Yooyuball draws, 1,667 Slushie Slinger games, or 10,000 Make Some Noise/Shootout Showdown games. What the daily caps will be this year remains to be seen.

UPDATE 2: In the editorial TNT have given more information, allowing us to calculate that the caps will likely fall in the 40-45 YYB wins range per day.

Altador Cup Press Season
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on May 16, 2016, 1:16 pm NST

As in previous years, in the run up to the Altador Cup we will be getting a special blurb about each team letting us know what each group has been up to in the off season - along with new NC wearables for each. The Pre-Tournament Press has just launched, with the first teams being Tyrannia, Kreludor, and Kiko Lake. This means that last year's prize shop is now closed.



As a result of this, we also now have a countdown to signups - they are slated to begin at midnight on the 25th of May. A word of warning, however, in previous years the countdown timer has been modified to push the time back into TNT office hours, so that may yet change.

The images for all these press releases have already been uploaded. While there don't appear to be any great surprises in the images, they are new, a welcome change from the reused images of last year's ACX!
