We would really appreciate it if you could help us keep The Dressing Room up to date. You can do that by modeling this item on our model page. Thank you !
Also, if you are particpating in the NC part of the Altador Cup - Homes of the AC Heroes - it would be great if you could model the items released through the Passes ! You can check out what previews we need here.
If flagged users are unable to advance to the next rank while playing in the Altador Cup, how are users who've already achieved all-star rank supposed to know whether they've been flagged if they are no longer advancing in rank anyway?
I'm glad this question came up because there have been many worries about something like this. So, there is a message that will show up if you have been flagged that looks like this: Your account is marked for suspicious activity and will not be able to actively rank up. If you feel that you've been wrongly affected by this, you are welcome to write into our team for further clarification. Thank you!
Also, there has been some modifications to the standings page which will make the day-to-day changes much more clear!
It's hard to say when people will be unfrozen, but the best advice we can offer to you all is to continue to play for your team and just hope that your ranks will be unfrozen and you will be rewarded for your time spent playing games.
Also in other news the TNT Staff Tournament Round 1 Results are in! Hop on over to our TNT Staff Tournament guide to see how your choices matched up against everyone elses.
Day for Yooyu's to rest. And you. Go visit the real world for the day. Or nap, too.
Also, there have been responses from tickets sent in about the frozen ranks. If you've been affected by the flagged ranking system this Altador Cup, play at your own risk. There is no telling whether or not they will remove you from the flagged rank. Weigh whether it is better to play with hope you get validated, but risk losing the time and effort you put into it if they don't; or if you don't want to play since you don't want to put in effort you could lose, only to get unflagged in the end and have less plays than you could have.
Thanks for writing in.
We posted in the news but in case you haven't read it any rank not updating issues are not a bug/glitch.
In an attempt to keep this year’s competition as clean as possible, TNT has been closely monitoring gameplay, which has resulted in certain accounts being put under review. The accounts in question, which were flagged for suspicious activity will not be able to actively rank up in our efforts to keep the competition fair. If you are experiencing this first hand, please understand that it is not a glitch.
What does this mean? It means if under review you can't rank up. It also means that we are monitoring this constantly, so if on an off-shot you are wrongly flagged you could be removed. That being said, there's no guarantee that you will be removed, for now you status remains as is.
Adding to your report with why you've been wrongly flagged etc.. won't help here. Our security team is on the case and again, constantly looking over the data. Those decisions will be made on our end.
To play or not to play, that is the question...
Week 1 results are in for this years SunnyNeo Staff Tournament! This was probably our closest battle between teams yet! No one team stomped the other two. Though, with current tradition, the team with Heroes in the title managed to take first place in this week. Congratulations, Yooyu Heroes! Followed very closely by Krazy Kaddy Kat Kadtastrophy, and very closely behind them, Seaweed Yooyuballs. It is anyones game. Can anyone take down a Heroes team?
Neopians ask, because Neopians dare... who, will it be?
We are also looking for many more entries to our SunnyNeo Altador Cup Customisation Spotlight! Take advantage of the practice day today when you cannot play, or when you need a break from games on regular days to get your entries in. Please, think outside the box. Use unique items and really get inspired. We love seeing those brand new fashions!

I signed up for the Altador Cup and received a Mysterious Vibrant Collectable Scarab, which I happily put in my stamp album. A couple days later, I saw a note in the news indicating that some data was lost and that I should sign up again. I did that and received another Mysterious Vibrant Collectable Scarab. I have seen differing opinions on whether I am allowed to sell this item or whether I can be frozen for doing so. Can you please clarify? Thanks!
Ah that have been a few questions about this, as well. So, to everyone that is unsure of what to do with your extra prize, the best course of action here is to just discard the extra prize that was handed out.
Just keep slinging..
Bottomless Coffee Mug - Something much needed for your team members...
I know it's obviously against the rules to play two of the same game at the same time in different tabs, but is there a rule against playing different games at the same time? For example scoring a couple of games in Yooyuball while I wait for my customers to build up in Slushie Slinger, or playing a game of Shootout Showdown when there's a darigan yooyu that just refuses to go in the net in my game of Yooyuball? Any clarification on this would be fantastic! ~usukii
Good question! There have been a lot of similar questions about playing two separate games in different tabs, windows, computers, etc. However, the answer will remain the same for all. You are only allowed to play one game at a time. Playing two games at once could lead to you being frozen and I would hate to see that happen. So, although it might take longer to finish a game before starting the next, it's a definite rule.
Secondly, we've updated our Slushie Slinger guide which includes game play, how to score points, how you lose the game, and some tips. It also lists at the top the Minimum Score, Daily Cap and the Low Resolution Link. Previously the guide was rather short. We hope the expanded guide will help improve your score.
Thirdly, we had some late additions to the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament! Three more people have joined the current teams - one each - and should be appearing there soon. Faith is joining the Yooyu Heroes on team Kiko Lake, Emily is joining Krazy Kaddy Kat Kadtastrophy on Terror Mountain, and Kyra is joining the Seaweed Yooyuballs on Maraqua.
Lastly, we are bringing back Team Interviews with some brand new questions. We are in need of some interviewee's. So if you'd like to answer some questions on behalf of your team, please let us know! Neomail Corine or Neomail Jujipup to get signed up.
Teams we already have completed.
As a reminder, the caps and minimum scores for each game are as follows:
Yooyuball: 46 games / No minimum
Slushie Slinger: 86 games / 270 minimum
Make Some Noise: 401 games / 2,700 minimum
Shootout Showdown: 401 games / 35 minimum (1 goal)
The Neocash event for this years Altador Cup is the Homes of the Altador Cup Heroes, for 700 NC each. The first pass is the Altador Cup Heroes Mystery Island Pass. Remember to help us out and Model for us!
This years matches are a "Round Robin," where each team will face each other once and then we will have final matchups. Good luck to all those competing this year!
Only 700NC?! Fantastic!!
When you sign-up again you will also recieve the loyalty bonus again, since these items are gained through a glitch you are NOT allowed to keep them! As it has been TNT's policy with previous wrongfully awarded items, you should simply discard your extra items!
We would also advice you to check back at the Colosseum before the sign-ups close on June 6th. To make sure you don't miss out on this year's AC season!
Now, if I find the one who stole my sign-up sheets... :K
The Seaweed Yooyuballs - We're so dangerous you'll never get us past the filters!
Meanwhile, have a Yooyu...
Not sure which team you want to join? Why not take our 'Which Team should you join for the Altador Cup?' quiz to help you decide..
When you sign up for a team, you will be rewarded with a sign-up bonus. Our Sign-up bonus page has been updated with the new item for this year. You will get a Mysterious Vibrant Collectable Scarab if this is the 12th time you are playing in the Altador Cup!
Besides this page, we are working on getting our other AC pages updated and ready before the AC starts. We have some nice things coming up for you!
No, you are not to late for the party yet...
Well, it looks like the Yooyu's are all ready for the AC. Why not take our 'What Yooyu are you?' quiz to get into the mood too?
Will one of these six teams take home the Cup??
For they are the Yooyus, and they are the true Heroes of the game.
Some not so flattering words for one of these teams... Prove 'em wrong, Altador!!
Also, a SunnyNeo Staff Team makes their entrance: Krazy Kaddy Kat Kadtastrophy! This team holds Vanity who has been in our staff tournament for AC IX and X and is an avid Krawk Island supporter. She took a break last year, but has returned this year with some great goals to accomplish! Both times Vanity played, her team landed in third place. She's hoping with new teammates her luck will change. Callie is another returning staffer who's participated in our AC IX and XI tournaments. She achieved All-Star status last year and hopes to do it again. She's also an avid Krawk Island supporter. Callie's first year team was in last place, last year's team jumped to first, and she's hoping for her second first place win this year! Returning for her second year after AC XI, Vicki is supporting Shenkuu once again. Vicki was with Franc last year and their team fell to last place. Vicki and Franc hope their previous pairing together will help them have an edge on other teams to work together well. They hope this team will take them to the top! Franc and Reagan were beginners last year who both support Maraqua. They are no longer new to the scene and hope this year they'll accomplish even more. The two would like to help their team place than either of their last year teams who placed third and fifth. Who will be their competition? Will this team be the next winner of the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament??
Eat your heart out!
With cheers from all the girls and boys.
As the Yooyu's fly both left and right-
Darigan Yooyu's give quite the plight.
There is a Showdown between all teams
As participants rush to make their dreams.
If you give your order to the Slinger first,
A Slushie can be had to quench your thirst.
