Altador Cup News and Updates

Neopets Producer Update Video

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!

Altador Cup XVI: New Players
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on May 17, 2021, 10:56 am NST

This year's Altador Cup is around the corner, and the current pre-tourney Press has revealed some exciting news: two new players will be debuting in this year's Cup!

First up on Team Mystery Island, Teylor Nix has been confirmed to be replaced with a brand new player, Tulay Ada, an Island Cybunny.


Second, and perhaps even more exciting, Team Faerieland will be gaining a new player, and the Altador Cup's very first Vandagyre player! Their name is currently unknown now known as Whimsi Dia! It appears that this new Faerie Vandagyre will be replacing longtime player Elbin Kroe.


What do you think of these new players? Is this a sign other changes might be coming to this year's Cup? Let us know what you think (or what you might want to see) in the comments!

Altador Cup Prize Shops Closing

In today's New Features, TNT have announced that the Altador Cup prize shops will be closing soon:

Heads up Neopians, the Altador Cup prize shop will be closing soon in preparation of this year's Altador Cup. So make sure to use any unredeemed points to pick up your favourite Altador Cup XV prizes and Staff Tournament prizes before the prize shop closes on May 13th!

If you still have prize points left from last year's Altador Cup or the Staff Tournament, now is the time to spend them as the prize shops will be retired on May 13th (a week today). This will also likely mark the beginning of this year's Altador Cup pre-tournament press.




Comfort Rock Companion Buying Guide
Looking to use up your Staff Tournament prize points? Not sure what to buy? Some Neopians like to purchase the 1 point prize in the yearly Staff Tourney prize shop to use later on in Charity Corner. If you're up for the grind, you could net yourself several thousand items to dump into the next Charity Corner event.

Here's a step-by-step to save yourself time if you plan on grinding Comfort Rock purchases between now and the close of shop:

1) Visit this URL, which anchors the page to the prize table: http://www.neopets.com/altador/colosseum/staff/#prize-item-81405

2) Click on the Comfort Rock Companion prize.

3) In the pop-up, click the green "Yes" button to confirm your selection.

4) Finally, click the (X) in the circle icon in the top right of the pop-up. The page won't refresh, which will save you quite a bit of time and scrolling. Rinse and repeat steps 2 through 4!

We also highly recommend cleaning out your inventory every 50 items or so. If you purchase too many, you may have trouble moving them to your Safety Deposit Box.

As a disclaimer, of course, we have no idea when Charity Corner may return—or even if it will ever return! So hoard at your own risk. You may end up with a bunch of useless rocks in your Safety Deposit Box...
