Starting Altador Cup IV, TNT began to hold NC Challenges. They are similar to previous game-based NC Challenges, you need to buy a ticket at the NC Mall. With this ticket you could compete in various challenges during the Altador Cup. When successfully completed all the challenges and you received an exclusive bonus Neocash item prize.
The Altador Cup NC VIP Pass event is back again this year with all new VIP areas to explore. With the VIP Pass, you would get
go behind the scenes of the tournament where others would not be allowed to come.
For the very first time, you are able to have a look in the VIP Lounge, Celebrity Box, View from a Blimp, and Winners Circle.
The VIP Access starts at June 3rd, although you are able to visit the areas already earlier on. You won't receive any prizes other than the sign up bonus prizes though before June 3rd.
For this NC event, there will be four tickets available. Tickets costs 700NC each and can be bought at the
NC Mall (or you could trade
for one or be gifted one).
The first ticket, the Altador Cup NC VIP Lounge Pass was released at June 1st and is for sale through July 1st. The others will be released later on.
Once you've gotten the ticket and activated it, you'll get access to the VIP area. The Altador Cup NC VIP Lounge Pass will give you access to the VIP Lounge, but not to any of the other places. Before activating a ticket, the VIP area will look like this:
Once you've activated the ticket, you will notice the ropes in front of the VIP Lounge (or any other of the locked areas depending on which ticket you have) have opened:
Like last year's NC VIP Pass event that ran during the Altador Cup, you don't have to play games for this event. Since you won't be earning any neopoints for this event, you can play it on side accounts as well.
However, there is a catch! In order to play the VIP Room event you need to join a team for the Altador Cup. This means you will get a sign-up
bonus. (Or more, if your side is a previous main on which you played the AC before). You must discard these items and not play any of the AC games on your side account in order to keep your account safe.
TNT gave the reply below in regards to this matter:
Yes! You may participate in the Altador Cup VIP Pass NC event on your side accounts. In order to do this, you will need to join a team. Joining a team will automatically give you NP items -- we are aware of this. :) We are willing to make an exception to our normal rules regarding side accounts in this instance. If you do decide to participate on a side account, however, please discard the NP items you receive and do not participate in any of the Altador Cup games. This would still be considered cheating!
When you activate your first VIP Pass ticket, you'll be given a sign-up bonus. This bonus consists of three wearable items: a Scarf, Vuvuzela and Jester Hat. These items will all be in the colours of the team you signed up for.

It’s not allowing me to activate my pass. What should I do? In order to activate your first pass, you must be signed up with a team for the Altador Cup. In terms of activating other passes, you may only activate one of each pass type per account.
I don’t see the pass I want available in the NC Mall to purchase. Check back at the NC Mall each Sunday for a new access pass. Existing passes will remain for sale until the end of the event.
