NC Challenge



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.



Altador Cup VI


This year, the AC NC Challenge came with something new, the VIP Pass. With the VIP Pass, you would get access to 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 Locker Room, the Yooyu Pen, the Royal Box and the Announcer's Studio.



The VIP Access starts at June 5th, although you are able to visit the area's already earlier on. You won't recieve any prizes though before June 5th.

Tickets
For this NC event, there will be four tickets available. Tickets costs 750NC 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 Locker Room Pass was released at June 1st and is for sale through July 2nd. The others will be released later on.

Participating
Once you've gotten the ticket and activated it, you'll get access to the VIP area. The Altador Cup NC VIP Locker Room Pass will give you access to the Locker Room, 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 door of the Locker Room (or any other of the locked area's depending on which ticket you have) has opened:



Unlike the previous NC events 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!
