And We're Off: ACXVI Begins!
  • Posted by Zelda
  • Posted on June 7, 2021, 12:15 am NST

As of midnight today, the 16th Annual Altador Cup has officially begun! Head over to the Colosseum to see who your team faces off against today!


As you play, don't forget to send in a support ticket with any bugs you encounter that aren't already on TNT's known bugs list.

Good luck, everyone! May the best team win!

This year, there do not appear to have been any changes to rank points, minimum scores, or max score sends per day. They are:

Yooyuball: Win/Draw (46 scores per day)
Slushie Slinger: 270 (86 scores per day)
Make Some Noise: 2700 (401 scores per day)
Shootout Showdown: 35 (401 scores per day)

Note: If you are minimum score sending Shootout Showdown you may encounter an Invalid Session error on score sends. This is due to finishing the game too quickly. You need to wait until the timer runs down 10 seconds (to 50) before ending the game in order to avoid the error.

Additionally, play close attention to the minimum score for Make Some Noise, as some computers/phones make it very difficult to reach 2700 in the new version.

Finally, there is an additional glitch today - some characters on teams in Yooyuball are not incrementing their Goals Scored/Saves totals on your rank listing. It appears this may affect the Top Scorers listing as these players are effectively excluded from the list.


P.S.: If you haven't joined a team yet, be sure to do so this week. According to the Rules page, sign-ups are expected to close at the end of this week.



The NC portion of the Altador Cup has also gone live today. It's called the Altador Coastline Gala, and it runs from June 7th to July 16th. You can buy wristbands at the NC Mall starting today. Each will allow you to redeem one item from the Gala. Multiple wristbands allow you to redeem items from multiple days, or multiple copies of the same day's item.

Altador Cup Sign-Ups are Now Open!
  • Posted by Zelda
  • Posted on June 1, 2021, 4:47 pm NST

The time we have been waiting for is here! Players across Neopia can now sign up to support their favorite teams in the 16th Annual Altador Cup at the Colosseum here.


If you can't find your team on the map, don't fear—you can also select from the team logos listed in alphabetical order along the bottom of the page. When you click on a shield, you'll see that team's roster of players for this year, and then you'll have one final chance to change your mind before you're committed for the entirety of ACXVI.

Once you've selected your team, you'll receive some sign up prizes. Check out our Sign Up Prizes guide for a full list. The new 16 year prize is this very shiny slushie:


Once you've joined a team, you'll find links to all four revamped HTML5 games so that you may begin practicing. (If you can load them.)

To keep up with the latest Altador Cup XVI news, be sure to keep an eye on Jellyneo, along with visiting our AC XVI hub:


(We'll also be posting some fun commentary on the match ups every few days—keep watch in our hub!)



UPDATE: TNT has posted on the official message board with a list of known issues (and some suggested workarounds). They've also included instructions on how you can help to report bugs—be sure to include your exact browser version and your operating system in the bug report, as there can be a lot of variation in terms of bugs between versions.




Having trouble signing up on mobile?
Apparently, signing up for a team is not working for some mobile users this year. If this includes you, here are some direct links to sign up:

Neopets Producer Update Video
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on May 31, 2021, 10:50 am NST

Scrappy and Gutterfoot have put together a new producer video, with some exciting updates coming soon to Neopets, including Altador Cup updates, NC Mall updates, UC updates, Pet Slot updates, and more!

Watch below...


Or, here's a text summary of their updates:

Altador Cup Updates:
  • Dates are changing, everything is moving up a week. Sign ups on the 1st, and games start on the 7th. So no lost game play due to sign ups being pushed up a week.
  • All games will be Flash-free and mobile friendly.
  • The Neocash tie-in will also be mobile friendly.
  • 2022 Altador Cup will be entirely in the new layout. Some sections of the Altador Cup this year will not be in the new layout.

New Layout + NC Mall Updates:
  • Updates slowed down a bit due to the Festival of Neggs and Altador Cup.
  • After the AC finishes, the team will be swinging back to the site redesign.
  • Next big release will be a big customization app fix. (Noted the issues with people loading the closet and items.)
  • After that, the NC Mall will be getting a revamp, and included will be UC Neopets! (Price, and exact details not mentioned—temper your expectations!)
  • Aiming to keep UC pets still valuable, but far more accessible. (See our List of UC Neopets in the Image Emporium.)
  • Pet Slots will also be purchasable in the NC Mall in the update. (Again, exact details, price, limits, etc. not announced.)

Community News:
  • They are looking to hire a dedicated Neopets Community Manager. (So that familiar faces like Gutterfoot and van Doodle can focus on their actual day job and not have community interaction be as big a priority for them.)
  • The official Neopets Merch Store (at NeopetsShop.com) has launched, as you may have seen.
  • A pride-themed collection is coming to the Merch Store soon, and portions of those sales will be donated to charity.
  • Early July, the first line of plushies are coming to the Merch Store. Neopets and Petpets are included.

What are you most excited for above? How many more pet slots will you be adding to your account? Let us know in the comments!
