TNT Staff Tournament Round 1 Results

  • Posted on June 14, 2018, 6:07 am NST

Round 2 of the TNT Staff Tournament has now begun! Our guide has been updated with details on the staff member scores for the first round.

TNT Staff Tournament Guide »


If you correctly guessed Scrappy as the Star Player for Round 1, you will get a Neomail congratulating you and a new item will be added to your inventory - a Scrappy Bobblehead.



(Keep in mind that the FAQ states that the Star Player will have different requirements each round, not always for the highest score.)

Extra Plot Prize + Altador Cup Avatar Changes
  • Posted by Herdy

Plot Prize

Today has seen the release of an extra plot prize, the Potion of Healing. This is an extra prize for those who donated additional potions beyond the achievement requirements during the plot. It appears to be a once per battle healer, however it is not currently subject to the Equip One rule that normally applies to healers. It is unclear if this is a glitch or deliberate.



Additionally, there is a glitch with how it is awarded. Hardtotame has been on the Neoboards with an update:

Players who received the Potion of Healing will find two in their inventory. Do not move either item from your inventory until further notice. You can not sell, auction or trade the potions, nor move them to your SDB until this is resolved.


We have sent out a NeoMail with the same instructions. If you have moved it to your SDB/equipped your pet with it, move it back to your inventory and leave it there. If a random event takes it away, you can send in a bug report to get it added back to your account.


We're currently collecting information on exactly how many times you needed to donate in order to qualify for the potion. If you got one, let us know how many potions you donated across the event.

Altador Cup Avatar Changes

Additionally, hardtotame made another announcement about changes to the new team avatars for the Altador Cup. Initially, they were to be removed when the Cup ended, but this has now changed!

Have you read the updated FAQs? You can keep your team avatars after the tournament ends. Next year, if you decide to join a different team, the new avatar will replace the one from this year.

I hope you're enjoying the Altador Cup!

(I have no time to stick around and chat today. We'll talk next time I'm here! Hopefully.)


Additionally, she posted that the animation of the Altador and Faerieland avatars would be fixed so that they looped correctly.

TNT Staff Tournament Live

The first round of the TNT Staff Tournament is live, and you have until Tuesday, June 12th at 11:59 PM NST to get your guesses in!

The goal of the guessing is to pick who will score the highest in each round, which will net you the most prize shop points. These points are only good in the TNT Staff Tournament prize shop, so it's an extra in addition to the regular Yooyuball playing!

New this year: Each round, a TNT staff member will be chosen, based on unknown criteria, to be the All-Star of the round. If that staff member was in your team lineup, and you selected them as the All-Star player for your team, you'll receive an extra bonus prize.

Our 2018 guide is up, but we also encourage you to look back at the 2017 guide to see how some staffers may stack up against each other.

(And don't forget to get your guesses in for Jellyneo's own staff tournament! Top 3 guessing closes on June 12th!)

The Altador Cup Begins
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on June 4, 2018, 9:50 am NST


Today, June 4th, is the first day of Altador Cup XIII!

As is usual, today you can begin playing Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise, and Shootout Showdown to receive credit towards the final prize shop.

There don't appear to be any major changes in this year's tournament structure so far, including in the minimum scores required or max games per day allowed. All-Star has, however, become slightly easier to obtain. (Only 8,800 games of Shootout Showdown instead of 10,000!)

Legends of Altador, this year's NC component, is also live today and running through June 28th.

Check back on June 8th for more information about the TNT Staff Tournament side event.

Avatars
New this year are team-themed avatars! You'll receive your respective team avatar after reaching Rank 1. (i.e. Team Virtupets players get the Virtupets avatar only)




These avatars will be temporary, as per the FAQ:
I just got an Altador Cup team avatar! Will this add to my permanent avatar count?

No, these team avatars are just so you can show your support for your team on the Neoboards. They will disappear at the end of the tournament.
