Significant Change to Altador Cup Standings
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 9, 2017, 12:45 pm NST

In today's editorial TNT have announced a significant change to both users who are flagged, and the overall standings page:

If flagged users are unable to advance to the next rank while playing in the Altador Cup, how are users who've already achieved all-star rank supposed to know whether they've been flagged if they are no longer advancing in rank anyway?
I'm glad this question came up because there have been many worries about something like this. So, there is a message that will show up if you have been flagged that looks like this: Your account is marked for suspicious activity and will not be able to actively rank up. If you feel that you've been wrongly affected by this, you are welcome to write into our team for further clarification. Thank you!
Also, there has been some modifications to the standings page which will make the day-to-day changes much more clear!


Those changes are now in effect on the standings page. The upshot of this? Teams are now granted a single point for each overall daily win they gain during the Round Robin, and these wins determine their standings - this is a similar scoring system to previous Round Robins and a departure from the bracket scoring system the standings page was previously using. This has had the immediate effect of dramatically changing the standings.

In other AC news, the TNT staff tournament has entered its second round! You have until Thursday to make your picks for round 2. Our updated staff tournament guide contains all the scores from round 1.

TNT Staff Tournament: Get Your Guesses In

  • Posted on June 5, 2017, 9:30 am NST


The first round of the TNT Staff Tournament is live, and you have until Friday 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!

Our 2017 guide is up, but we also encourage you to look back at the 2016 guide to see how some staffers may stack up against each other.

(And check back soon for Jellyneo's own staff tournament! We're going live in a couple nights. :D)

Altador Cup Rankings Not Counting
  • Posted by Herdy
  • Posted on June 3, 2017, 3:57 pm NST

UPDATE: TNT has posted the following excerpt in the news regarding this issue. It is not a glitch, but rather your account has been flagged for cheating. If you're not using score sending or participating in other play methods that have been deemed against the rules by TNT, then you may want to submit a ticket via the help center.

ADDITIONAL AC NEWS: In an attempt to keep this year’s competition as clean as possible, TNT has been closely monitoring gameplay, which has resulted in certain accounts being put under review. The accounts in question, which were flagged for suspicious activity will not be able to actively rank up in our efforts to keep the competition fair. If you are experiencing this first hand, please understand that it is not a glitch. However, if you feel that you’ve been wrongly affected by this, you are more than welcome to write into our team for further clarification. Thank you!

As of late last night NST, there is an ongoing Altador Cup glitch involving some users that is preventing them from ranking up in all 4 games - despite not maxing games or submitting scores below minimums, their ranks are not increasing (but scores are being added to totals). It is unclear if this will have a knockon effect to prize points.

If you think you have suffered this glitch, submit a ticket! At this point there doesn't seem to be a solution. To check if you have been affected, visit the on site Rank Calculator at the Altador Cup main page, by clicking here:



Make a note of the games needed to rank up that are displayed there, and go play a single qualifying game. If the games needed figure does not decrease, you are suffering from the glitch.

Altador Cup Live!
  • Posted by Herdy

After a delay of a few hours, the Altador Cup has once more entered live play! As a reminder, this year has changed the format so that you will for the first 17 days play each team once before continuing - placement will now be decided on win record and an unknown 'variable' factor.



In case you missed it, the Homes of the Altador Cup Heroes NC element is also now live:

View Our Guide »


So far, it seems like the rank requirements are the same as last year - suggesting that daily caps may also be unchanged. We'll update this post with the daily caps once they are confirmed.

UPDATE: Daily caps are confirmed to be the same as last year. They are:

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

Special note this year: Last year, as part of TNT's effort to crack down on cheaters, several innocent accounts were also seemingly caught in the net. It is unclear exactly what caused this to happen, but none of the accounts involved have yet been returned. It seems likely that sending scores too quickly was a factor, so this year we advise that you refrain from playing if the site starts lagging, and avoid having the different games open in different tabs at the same time. Particularly if you happen to be on a team that an ASG or cheating group has joined.
