Wraith Resurgence Prize Updates
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on June 7, 2018, 11:21 am NST


It appears that Neomails are going out informing users if they were eligible for the "A Stickler for Time" achievement that some missed due to a glitch during the plot. This will only apply to those who missed Day 1 of the Fiendish Formations portion (as confirmed by TNT below). If the achievement pushes you up a trophy rank, your trophy will be automatically upgraded and you'll receive the prize you missed. You can also claim your avatar from the achievements page.

For most Neopians, this will likely mean an upgrade to the top trophy tier along with the Wraith Resurgence Stamp.

The Neomail in question:
Good news username,

We have verified that you are eligible for the "A Stickler for Time" achievement in The Wraith Resurgence, as you only missed Day 1 of Fiendish Formations. With this achievement, you have made it to the next trophy level. Accordingly, we are updating your trophy and adding an extra prize to your inventory.

We hope you like them!

The Neopets Team

We're still on the lookout for people who have completed the following # of achievements during the plot:

  • 28 achievements (please confirm if you were Slick Psychic or Vapid Volunteer)
  • 14-15 achievements (please confirm if you were Vapid Volunteer or Frivolous Fresher)

If you completed 28, 14, or 15 achievements (you can count them on the achievements page), please post in the comments on this post or send a report to let us know so we may update our guide!

Final Prize Guide »

UPDATE: TNT has posted a long message about who ended up being eligible for the achievement recount. The short version is, only those who missed Day 1 were eligible for the "7 out of 8 days" fix. If you missed Day 2, 3, etc. you were not eligible.

I'm sorry.
There was quite some confusion at office about the 'A Stickler for Time' achievement and what we had done to address that issue.
When I last gave you an update about this, it was common understanding that everything I said to you was accurate. (I verified with my boss before I posted on the boards.)

However, since then, the programmer that worked on it came back and asked us a few questions about the bug reports that started trickling in, which is when we realized that she'd been talking about a different issue all along. She thought the problem we'd been discussing was the bug that unlocked certain days in advance for some of you, and messed with your total count of days completed.

THAT was the bug that she insisted she had fixed way back then, NOT the issue with players who didn't catch group 1 on the day of release.

Now you must be wondering why I said we had fixed the issue by changing the requirements to finishing any 7 out of 8 days on the day of release - this was something that we had discussed in office as a solution way back then, but apparently never implemented.

The confusion came about because she was telling us she had fixed the problem (a different one) but that she couldn't remember exactly how, and another member on the team (who, like most of us, thought we were ALL discussing 'A Stickler for Time') said 'I remember this. The fix was that we changed the criteria to 7/8 days.' Somehow she didn't catch that, and therefore didn't correct him - but those of us that heard him all thought that was the explanation.

After we realized our mistake, we ran a script yesterday to update the achievement for those who completed 7 out of 8 days, with one additional criteria – the day you missed had to be Day 1. We think this is better than just handing it out to everyone that missed any 1 of the 8 days. This is the final decision on this matter.

I'm genuinely sorry about the inaccuracy of my previous post on this topic. I was truly mortified when I realized that I had given you the wrong information. In all honesty, I wanted to just keep mum about it and pretend like nothing was wrong, but it was pretty obvious that the NeoMails that were being sent out yesterday were very different from what I had told you would be happening with this achievement. I'm here to apologize and to request that you don't let this prevent you from trusting in me as a reliable source of information here on.

The Madness Continues

If that impossible-to-obtain Neopia Central stamp album avatar was out of reach for you, here are some other new avatars that might be a little more possible, but still ridiculously expensive:



In order of above: NeoQuest II, Battle for Meridell, Meridell vs. Darigan, Scarabs, Coins, Altador, Other, Space Station Coins, Evil Coconuts.

As always, check out our Stamp Album guide and Stamp Checklist Tool to see how many more stamps you need to complete your album!

TNT, if you're reading this, there's an extreme supply problem with certain stamps, particularly older r101 stamps that were released in extremely limited quantities (250 or less!)

UPDATE: TNT has posted some comments on the reactions that people are having to the new stamp avatars:

Wait, we saw so many requests for [stamp avatars], we didn't even stop to think whether there were any drawbacks to doing this. Meh. *Another* lesson learnt for next time. Sigh.

Yes, we always intended to release more avatars for other areas of the site, but now it looks like we need to push that up the priority list.

We do want to rerelease some of the very rare, old stamps. I've seen Dr. Sloth's Auctions, but like you said, only the super rich will ever be able to get them, again. Do you have any more suggestions on how we can do this 'carefully'? Adding them to dailies but making them extremely difficult to get seems like a good idea..

tl;dr: They had the best intentions, but now see that more action needs to be done. Looks like rare stamps could be re-released soon, along with some avatars that are not stamp-based.

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.
