Now that the celebrating in Kreludor has died down, meaning the Altador Cup is almost over....
Come on and hurry up with those results!
Patience, young Lupe...Now what? O yes, the results for the Staff Customisation Spotlight. Our Stafffmembers came up with some nifty entries to show off their Neopet's Altador Cup spirit and you can now view the results!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 23
It's the last day of Altador Cup VII as it's already Day 23. Still be watching out for those Darigan Yooyuballs! Also remember to buy your last shiny NC VIP Pass. Wouldn't want to miss out on the winner's circle, would you? Time to see results from yesterday's games!
Don't you just love podiums in the morning!
Let's all just take a moment to remember this glorious day because Team Faerieland takes their first Altador Cup VII overall round win! Two wins in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown and a tie in Slushie Slinger makes Moltara seeth with envy because they only get one Yooyuball win. That's what happens when you let those dark faeries loose!
Meridell jousts their way to an almost sweep against Team Haunted Woods, taking three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout showdown and a draw in Make Some Noise. You really shouldn't play against Team Meridell, they have armour. And Unis.
Team Virtupets barely takes a win against Team Terror Mountain with two wins in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise and a draw in Slushie Slinger. Terror Mountain still redeems themselves with at least one win in Shootout Showdown, showing they still can score when they want to. They just need some more tempting prizes waved in front of their faces! Isn't ultimate glory enough?
Team Roo Island destroys Team Shenkuu taking two wins in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown, drawing both Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger. I've told you guys to look out for those Blumaroos! I swear no one listens to me. You really should start sometime, especially you, Shenkuu.
In the middle of today's matches we had a lovely game of Team Brightvale versus Team Kiko Lake which results in a fantastic tie. Two wins go to Kiko Lake in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise while Brightvale takes Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger. Congrats both teams! You both deserve a banner, or a party. Whichever.
Team Mystery Island barely scoots by with a win, making their mark with two wins in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise and a draw in Slushie Slinger. However Lost Desert still bears their sand and kicks some butt, making themselves known with a win in Shootout Showdown. What an intense game!
It seems Team Krawk Island is back on top after a slight fall, making up for the past few days with an almost sweep against Team Tyrannia. Three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown go to Krawk Island while Tyrannia takes their draw in Make Some Noise. Congrats you magically fierce Krawkies!
Team Kreludor takes the only sweep of Day 23 againt Team Darigan Citadel yesterday, making us all wonder what made Darigan Citadel just lay down and take it. Gravity stop working up there, perhaps? It must've been something huge to make those guys lie down on the job! Looks like the heat got to their head. They only play in the dark, after all.
Maraqua squirms in the water after their one game loss to Team Altador in Slushie Slinger, however they still take home another three games. Phew! Got you scared there, didn't I? Whoops, my bad. All together Team Maraqua wins this one with three games going to them: Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Congrats Maraquans!
Remember that today is one of the last possible days to play in the Altador Cup so try your hardest! Good luck to all the players out there today, I'm sure you'll need it.
The results from the Customisation Spotlight we held earlier on are now in! It seems a certain Blue Ixi thief *cough Hanso cough* stole our results, so there has been some delay. We would like to thank King Jazan for bringing those results back to us.
No problem at all, no problem at all. But I looked at them and I think you made a mistake with the results for Lost Desert...
Eh, yeah, sorry for that. But we have a clear rule: each Neopet can be entered with a customisation only once. So maybe you should have entered Nabile only one time, not five times.
Now, where were we? You can view all the winning entries on our Customisation Spotlight page. Like each year, we got many great entries and it was hard to make a choice. Congrats to all the winners!
Hey, why am I not listed among those winners! I sent in ten entries for myself for Faerieland!
Apparently, they've got this rule you can only enter once. Besides, I can't say you look like the average Faerieland supporter, more like the average thief I have to say.
O come on, who could look more HANSOme than I do?

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 22
Hello again everyone, sorry for the very big delay on getting this report up! It's those dang Meepits, I tell you. They're always making things glitchy. It's Day 22 and there are only 2 days left for the Altador Cup so you better get your playing hats on because this is going to be a big one. Let's get those results!
Team Haunted Woods scares the pants off of Moltara. Who knew Team Moltara could get scared of anything besides ice? You know lava just doesn't mix with ice. Moltara takes one win in Yooyuball while Haunted Woods takes the other three in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Another almost sweep goes down in Altador Cup VII, this one brought on by none other than Team Terror Mountain. It seems Team Faerieland gets frozen up around these guys! Three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise and a draw in Shootout Showdown goes to Terror Mountain.
Yet again we see Team Meridell sweep another team off the board. Who were the unfortunate ones this time? Team Virtupets. Looks like old Slothy's really lost his touch. Maybe he should ask those darn Meepits for help. All four games go to Meridell. Cheers!
Three games go to those bouncing Blumaroos yesterday, with Team Brightvale taking at least one win in Shootout Showdown. Looks like Team Roo Island could only hold onto the three games Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise!
Team Shenkuu barely loses a tie because of a draw in Shootout Showdown and only one win in Make Some Noise. The other two wins go to those crafty sandies, Team Lost Desert in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger.
An almost sweep goes to Team Mystery Island after three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. It seems Team Kiko Lake drowned in their tears to create an ocean and could only participate in Shootout Showdown.
Team Krawk Island takes a devastating upset by loosing Yooyuball to Team Altador. It seems they've pulled together all their resources to take one win in a game against a major team. However the power team still pulls out three wins in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Team Kreludor smashes down on Team Tyrannia today, taking a smashing win in three games: Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Tyrannia still beats Kreludor up a little bit with their win in the ever so loved game of Yooyuball.
It looks like Maraqua gave up yesterday against Team Darigan Citadel. Things just get too dark for you to see underwater Team Maraqua? Guess so. Darigan Citadel also sweeps the board for the second and last sweep of the day, rounding up our results for Day 22.
Remember to check back later and vote in our Staff Customisation Spotlight! Good luck to all those teams out there trying their hardest today. Don't forget to drink lots of water in that summer heat!
Just like everyone, we staffmembers love to dress up our Neopets to make them show off their support of their favorite Yooyuball team!
And just like the years before, not only can you now see what we have come up with, but you can also vote for your favorites! Our Staff Customisation Spotlight voting is now live and there are three catagories for you to vote in. Which Pet will become a winner this year?
I'm the best, vote for me!
O, no you're not! I'm the prettiest Uni around!
You'd better make a wise choice and choose me instead!
Everyone knows I'm the best to vote for!
*Smiles friendly* Just choose me?
O come on, vote for me alright?
Choose me, I've got cookies!
*backs away from the crowd* Uhhm, vote for me please?

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 21
It's Day 21 and only three days are left until the end of the Altador Cup (unless, of course, there's a tie). *sad face* And here I was really enjoying writing these reports! It was also the last day to vote for TNT's Staff Tournament. If you didn't vote this year there's always next! Let's see those results, shall we?
Hopefully you picked correctly and play next year!!
Terror Mountain just barely misses a sweep with their draw against Team Moltara in Make Some Noise. Looks like they just weren't as cheery as they should have been to make a sweep! Team Terror Mountain adds three wins to their scoreboard in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.
Team Virtupets almost ties with Team Haunted Woods, however they make a last ditch effort and win this round! With a draw in Slushie Slinger and two wins in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise they sure do deserve it. Haunted Woods takes one win in Shootout Showdown.
One can only hope that next year Team Faerieland will learn to actually play, especially in matches like the one played yesterday. Team Meridell takes a smashing sweep against the faeries, never looking back to see Faerieland's broken wings and bruised, adorable faces. Ouch! Those kicks from Meridell must have hurt.
Team Roo Island takes absolutely no prisoners this round, coming back strong with a win against Team Lost Desert. Sorry sandies, you couldn't sweep your way out of this one. Coltzan was absolutely no help last round. He just kept giving them more sand fruit. Who does that? You're trying to win here! Roo Island wins Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, draws Shootout Showdown and loses Yooyuball to Lost Desert.
The second of three magnificent sweeping teams came in the form of Mystery Island yesterday, killing their opponents Team Brightvale. Determination and hard work, people. Determination and hard work. Oh, and the Tiki Tack Tombola Man. Who could possibly forget his dance moves? Definitely not me. Here, have a lei! Courtesy of Team Mystery Island.
After a great victory yesterday, Team Shenkuu was seen throwing their own pottery and going wild at the Colosseum after winning three out of the four games. How great! I think they've finally gotten over their loud noises phobia. Phew! Just in time for the end of the Altador Cup.. Maybe next year they'll win the whole thing? Three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown leaves Team Kiko Lake to take a win in Make Some Noise. Three cheers for both teams!
A disastrous thunder storm delayed all Team Krawk Island players from making it to the Colosseum yesterday, resulting in Team Darigan Citadel taking a sweep. How tragic! Hopefully Krawk Island will get back up on their feet and play their hearts out for the rest of the Altador Cup. It's not over until it's over! Krawk Island has been spotted singing in spite of their win. What great team support!
Team Altador was too excited over seeing the Giant Omelette in Tyrannia to play any games yesterday. Looks like Team Tyrannia will be winning this one with three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The only game Altador was willing to play and eventually win was Slushie Slinger because of the massive heatwave in Tyrannia!
Surprisingly the notorious sweepers Team Kreludor loses a game of Make Some Noise to Team Maraqua. However, they still manage three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Congrats Kreludor! It seems your non-gravity tower has yet to fall and you're on your way towards the end. Keep going, you'll get there really soon!
Good luck to all you players out there in the last few days of the Altador Cup! Keep playing and trying to get to All Star. I'm sure all you readers out there will make it soon enough!
A few weeks ago, before the AC started, we mentioned the Faerie Yooyu as one of the prize shop prizes for the Altador cup. Now we can show the actual image of the little thing!
So just keep playing for the AC and this might be yours soon!
Don't forget to score with me!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 20
We're getting into the end stretches of Altador Cup VII as it is already Day 20! I bet that flew right over your head like that Yooyuball did 20 minutes ago, right? It still feels like Day 1 to me, personally. But either way, let's get those results out and rolling!
Starting out the Alabriss Bracket, Team Meridell takes the first of five sweeps of the day! Wow, five, is that right? Yes sirree! Or ma'am. Anyway you look at it, Team Moltara takes the short end of the stick this time. That's too bad for them but maybe they'll recover from this one, not that there's much time left. But don't put your cleats away yet, there's still 4 (or 5) days left!
Team Terror Mountain takes this match with two wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, a draw in Make Some Noise and a loss to Team Virtupets in Yooyuball. Really, what else is there to say? They dominated the field and that shows in Terror Mountain's results! Congrats to you little snowflakes.
Those scary trees are back at it again, killing Team Faerieland's chances at a win with their creepy stares and pies. What team did that, you ask? Team Haunted Woods, of course! Honestly, who else would have a clown that explodes and owns that many umbrellas and pies?! Definitely not Maraqua! Haunted Woods wins Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, draws Yooyuball and loses Shootout Showdown to Faerieland.
The second sweep of the day goes to those oh-so-bouncy Blumaroos from Team Roo Island! It seems Team Kiko Lake just couldn't swim long enough to stay in the water with these gutsy guys.
Team Mystery Island takes an almost sweep yesterday against Team Lost Desert, only giving up one draw in Shootout Showdown. Just couldn't pull out a sweep! Oh well, everyone has off days. They still win Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. Which is pretty amazing if I do say so myself. Oh, and that Tiki Tack Tombola Man was seen dancing his butt off again. Of course he was muahaha.
It's a straight up tie in the match of Shenkuu vs. Team Brightvale yesterday, both getting two wins to even out the table. Team Shenkuu takes Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger while Brightvale wins Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Double celebration day! I hope we're all invited. *nudgecough*
The Vaelous Bracket is all about sweeps today with three out of six teams taking sweeps in all four categories. Holy cowsicle! Team Kreludor takes the first one against Team Krawk Island. It must be a sad day for those yarr'ing pirates. Shiver me timbers at the sight of Kreludor!
Team Darigan Citadel abolishes Team Tyrannia to a far, unknown land somewhere in the South where they can bake in the heat and never play Yooyuball again. Oh dear! At least for this round. That being said, Team Darigan Citadel takes the fourth of five sweeps of the day. Congrats you dark but adorable determined players!
The last of five sweeps of Day 20 goes to the beloved Team Maraqua when they played against Team Altador. Poor Altador, it doesn't seem like they'll ever get a break in these games. Maybe one day, just maybe? Probably not. No one's willing to give up their day against them just so they can have a happy ending. I know I wouldn't! Time for Altador to play harder.
That's it for Day 20 and remember you have until Friday to submit Round 3 for TNTs Staff Tournament. Play hard and stay motivated - we all know you're determined to get to All Star!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 19
It's Day 19 and things are really going down hard in Altador Cup VII. That Colosseum really does bring the competition out in us players! It's hard to believe we started this journey nineteen days ago.. *reminisces* Anyways, let's get those results out there!
Virtupets takes a win against Team Faerieland today, drawing in Slushie Slinger and winning Yooyuball and Make Some Noise. Those cute faeries weren't so cute when they won Shootout Showdown though. At least not to Team Virtupets. However, they still raved over their massive win. At least they were happy about it. Celebrations all around!
Team Meridell takes the first of three smashing sweeps - literally. So many slushies got smashed all over Team Terror Mountain. They must be very sticky now! We've heard reports of some people even getting stuck to the floors. Oh no! Four wins for Meridell in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown must be a real big downer for Terror Mountain as well. Looks like they'll be cleaning the floor with their tears. :'(
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Haunted Woods almost sweeps Team Moltara! Alright, enough with the exclamations. Those sometimes annoy people in large groups, hmph. (!!!!!!!!!!! Annoyed yet?!) That being said, Team Haunted Woods kills the competition with three wins in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown and a draw in Yooyuball. Wowza!
Team Shenkuu has no ninja powers against Team Mystery Island, barely taking one win in Shootout Showdown. Mystery Island takes the other three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. It's too bad they haven't gotten over their fear of fire! You'd think they'd have learned to meditate out of it, but Mystery Island seems to have found their biggest weakness. Hopefully no other team realizes this or it could possibly be the end of Team Shenkuu!
It looks like Kiko Lake players hate sand! It seems even when you live on a beach you just don't like those little rocks. Only water for Team Kiko Lake, only water. Remember that the next time you try and play sandstormTeam Lost Desert! Kiko Lake takes one win in Slushie Slinger while Lost Desert takes the other three in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Roo Island is among the winners circle for their three wins against Team Brightvale! Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown go to Team Roo Island while Brightvale takes Yooyuball. At least they still won one! It must be the Wheel of Knowledge telling them where to shoot those Yooyu's. It must be.
Looks like this maraquan Mynci is just as mad as Team Krawk Island is for their tie against each other. Oh dear, I hate it when teams get mad. Be happy you drew! At least both teams didn't lose. Not that that's even possible, don't be ridiculous. There always has to be a winner, except in this case! Team Maraqua takes a win in Make Some Noise and two draws in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown while Krawk Island wins Slushie Slinger.
Team Altador just can't get a break, can they? Team Darigan Citadel showed their power today against the sunny team, making a statement that light doesn't always win against dark. Well done Darigan Citadel! Four wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown goes to the dark team, while Altador takes zilch.
Once Upon A Time there was a team called Team Kreludor. And a glass slipper, a prince and a pumpkin were somehow involved, oh, and a faerie godmother, but that doesn't really matter. What does matter is that they miraculously gained a sweep onto their amazing record, this time against Team Tyrannia. Congrats Kreludor, you've shown that working hard and determination gets you very far in this game!
That's all for today folks! Come back tomorrow and read another fantastic report on all the matches of the day. It'll be interesting like always, we promise. Good luck to all the terrific, determined teams out there today! Beat the socks off your opponents for absolutely no reason, we love it.

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 18
Day 18 hits Altador Cup VII with a bang and the end of the third round matches! I'm so sad to see this round go, that means we only have a few more days left of the Altador Cup. *sniffles* Ah well, let's get onto those results anyways!
It seems those pirate Krawks are still vying for the top three, bringing in three wins today against Team Kiko Lake! For the first time this Altador Cup we finally got a comment from Garven Hale about his team's performance. "Everyone's very proud of Team Krawk Island today. You can bet we're celebrating, but not too much. We still have work to do." After three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown I'll be celebrating right alongside them! Kiko Lake scores one win in Slushie Slinger.
Team Mystery Island heats up the Colosseum with their riveting performance against Team Faerieland. Those poor faeries, they get tossed around like rag dolls all the time. I couldn't imagine! Mystery Island gets the only sweep of the day, sending flames flying through my favorite things, slushies. Who needs to sling them when you can just blow them up? It's a much better strategy, in my opinion.
Those amazing Meridell citizens take out an almost sweep today! It seems they've got an umpteenth supply of those this year. You really shouldn't play with these guys, they're hardcore. Team Terror Mountain was very distraught about only getting a draw in Slushie Slinger while Team Meridell celebrates their three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Yet another tie hits the Altador Cup, this time involving the match between Team Virtupets and Team Brightvale. Looks like both teams were fired up just enough to win two games each! Virtupets takes Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger while Brightvale wins Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Great job both teams!
Two sunny teams almost tie today, but thankfully for Team Tyrannia they just barely sneak a draw in there. Poor Team Altador, just couldn't play hard enough yesterday. Maybe today will be different! Let's hope, for their sake. Nobody wants to come in last! That's just embarassing. Team Tyrannia won Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, drew in Slushie Slinger and lost Shootout Showdown to Altador.
Three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise come from Team Lost Desert today, obliterating the competition, Team Moltara. Just couldn't get that lava spewed up fast enough, could you? They still won Shootout Showdown though! It seems they're just a little better at scoring than Lost Desert is.
An almost sweep comes from Team Darigan Citadel today, leaving poor Shenkuu crying in the middle of the Colosseum. They just can't get any luck lately, can they! Maybe someday someone will undervalue them and they'll take it all back. Someday. Darigan Citadel takes three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown while Team Shenkuu draws Slushie Slinger.
Maraqua also takes an almost sweep against Team Haunted Woods! Those poor dead, scary trees. They probably aren't used to being hydrated, right? That's probably why they were only able to draw in Slushie Slinger. Team Maraqua takes three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Wow!
The fourth (and last) almost sweep of the day comes from the last round; Kreludor vs. Team Roo Island. Sorry little Blumaroos, but you know Team Kreludor supporters weren't just going to roll over and play dead for you! That'd be way too much to ask of a team, even if you are a cute little Blumaroo. Kreludor wins three games: Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Somehow Roo Island manages a sweep against the powerhouse team in Make Some Noise.
Wow, that's it for Day 18! Check back tomorrow for another report and remember to support your team with Altador Cup Graphics for the last few days!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 17
Is it really Day 17 of Altador Cup VII already? Wow! Time really does flies, just like those faerie Yooyuballs in the Colosseum. There's only one sweep of the day, can you guess who it was? Let's get into those results and find out!
Team Krawk Island takes home another victory with two wins in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger. Terror Mountain slides themselves down their snow castle homes just in time to get draws in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Seems like the second time is the charm for Team Terror Mountain who got sweeped by the vicious Krawks the last time they played each other!
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming... That's Team Kiko Lake's new motto as they took on Faerieland yesterday! This water clad team takes three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. However, Team Faerieland was still able to take a smashing win in Shootout Showdown. Looks like their wings were working for that game!
Call the news reporters, it's a tie! Oh, wait, I'm already here. Oopsie. *1 Missed Call* Darn it.. Anyways, it seems Team Meridell and Team Mystery Island both played their hardest yesterday against each other, both earning two wins. Mystery Island takes Yooyuball and Make Some Noise with Meridell winning Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.
Team Lost Desert takes an almost sweep today against Virtupets, winning three competitions: Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. They also drew in Yooyuball, making Team Virtupets quite angry. Especially Evil Dr. Sloth. There's been many threats of a takeover by Dr. Sloth against SunnyNeo and anyone reporting this loss. Looks like we might get an angry reporter tomorrow, let's hope not..
Brightvale is hereby apologizing to Team Altador for absolutely creaming their team yesterday. Aww, how nice of you Team Brightvale! At least they're courteous, most teams aren't nowadays. Altador takes their one lonely win in Slushie Slinger while Brightvale gets Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Talk about a raging score! Time to celebrate, Brightvale. But not too hard, there's still games today!
Team Tyrannia takes two wins in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger and a draw in Make Some Noise. Take a shot at who could've possibly won the last game? Well, it wasn't Tyrannia, that's for sure.. It was Team Moltara! Too bad Tyrannia still beat them. Oh well, congrats to Tyrannia for a great display of courage and perseverance!
Another loss gets delivered to Team Shenkuu, this time by those tricky Blumaroos on Roo Island. It seems no one is willing to give Shenkuu a break, especially not with Team Roo Island going for the gold! Roo Island takes two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise while Shenkuu draws Yooyuball and wins Shootout Showdown. Hopefully they can pull out more wins tomorrow!
Purple and black does better than orange and black today! Looks like Darigan Citadel just wasn't up for playing around with Team Haunted Woods. Three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown go to Team Darigan Citadel while Haunted Woods takes a win in Make Some Noise! At least they were able to scream.
Team Kreludor takes the only sweep of the day, this one against Team Maraqua. We caught Maraqua refilling their ocean with their tears this morning. Hopefully this sweep doesn't distract them from playing today! Kreludor is too busy playing their butts of like usual to comment. Seems they're taking a cue from those ever busy Krawks. A passing Maraqua fan sniffled and said they were still proud of their team. Aww!
That's it for today! Remember you have until Friday to submit your TNT Staff Tournament Round 3 picks. Hopefully you're able to pick the right dream team! Good luck to all the teams today, we're all wishing you luck here at SunnyNeo.

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 16
It's Day 16 of Altador Cup VII and you know what that means! Another daily match report, aw yeah. Curious to see what's happened so far? Me too! Now let's hop into those fierce matches and see who won (or lost) what today.
We start off our report today with an intense match of Krawk Island vs. Team Mystery Island. It seems Team Krawk Island just could not pull out a win today. Looks like they underestimated Mystery Island at almost every turn, except Shootout Showdown, which they take a win in. Mystery Island takes three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.
The Alabriss Bracket today has two of the most hardcore matches, the second one pitting Team Kiko Lake against Meridell. Jousting, swimming, and.. Unis? It seems Meridell brought out all their stops today, including their personal Neopets. Team Meridell takes three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Kiko Lake was still able to swim somewhat close to the top, slinging their way to a win in Slushie Slinger.
It seems many people on Terror Mountain were going for All Star yesterday, trying to make as many Yooyuballs fly as they could into Team Faerieland's goals as possible. And of course they succeed after being so dedicated, taking no cute flying faeries as hostages this time. Team Terror Mountain takes their first sweep of the season, congrats you icy players!
Team Lost Desert takes a smashing win against Team Altador, only faulting up around Make Some Noise, which Altador wins. Oh well, that means they still won Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown! That takes work, which Altador will hopefully soon learn how to do. Maybe someday they'll be able to compete against these powerhouses.
Run for your lives, the Sloth's are coming!! Just kidding, that really should be said about Team Tyrannia yesterday who demolished Team Virtupets. Would you like some ice for that burn, or do you not burn in no gravity? Meow! Seems Tyrannia and their sweep is getting to their heads. Or mine. We really can't be sure, can we!
Team Brightvale takes the third of four sweeps today, searing the knickers off of Team Moltara. Shouldn't that have happened the other way around? Seems like someone forgot to bring their lava to the match yesterday. Or they were just too blinded because they're so used to lava. If that makes sense, which we both know it doesn't. Maybe I'm just running out of metaphors.
When Team Haunted Woods visited Roo Island yesterday they were waayyy too busy playing Dice-A-Roo to actually play the Altador Cup. Trust me, I want that avatar too! Those tricky Blumaroos just never give it to me though. Sigh. Looks like they wouldn't give Haunted Woods any slack either, because Team Roo Island takes the last of four sweeps of the day. Go Blumaroos on Islands!
Dear Team Shenkuu, meditating isn't a team strategy. At all. Time to think up of a more, fighting plan, rather than "ooohmm" plan. Team Maraqua swims circles around this team, gaining wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Somehow Shenkuu fought long enough in between meditation cycles to win Slushie Slinger. Somehow.
Want a cookie, Darigan Citadel? It's the least Team Kreludor can do after almost sweeping your keister's yesterday! Mmm, those cookies look fantastic. Too bad I'm gluten-free. Team Darigan Citadel draws Yooyuball while Kreludor smashes out wins in three competitions: Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Congrats! Next time make those cookies gluten-free though. *glares*
The third Altador Cup VII NC VIP Pass has been released today, this time for the blimp! Also, don't forget it's your last day to enter into SunnyNeo's Customisation Spotlight. You know you want to do it! The winner gets featured on SunnyNeo. Now wouldn't that just be a dream?
This-this is an outrage! *Jazan quotes from the neomail that has been promptly delivered to his Qasalan castle* "We thought that maybe you could add a softer, more sensible feel to our reports"
I swear Nabile, I did my job and I delivered my report like I should have. It was that. It was all that fool ixi's fault! Messing around. Making up stories.
Now Jazan, I saw the report. You were fighting with him just as much as he was with you. I know he upsets you but you could show a little patience and maturity. This is just what happens my dear.
Look, I'll put in a good word for The Lost Desert for you. How did they go yesterday.
Oh. Well. We fought those Tyrannians with strength and dignity. We drew in Yooyuball, lost Slushie Slinger but won everything else!
Meanwhile in Brightvale
Hanso. This neomail came to my house by mistake. I think it is from SunnyNeo, I thought it must be for you you so I didn't open ---
Ah they just probably need my heroics once more. They are probably in need of my creative genius once more for their daily match report.
Or maybe they noticed that you stole that drawing of you they made. I'm going to make you return it you know. You've got enough you drew yourself anyway.
*Hanso pulls a face* Just open it Brynn. I'll accept of course. I can tell them how Faerieland packed a wallop against Mystery Island! They are bound to invite Jazan along too and I am in need of some new Qasalan jewelery.
Hanso! Faerieland lost all their games! Besides, *Brynn opens the letter* actually Hanso, the neomail is for me.
What? What do they want you for Miss Goody-Two-Shoes?
Back at the SunnyNeo Headquarters
Hi there Nabile, how are you today. That is such a pretty dress you are wearing!
Thanks Brynn. Thats a lovely...uh...chain mail. How did Hanso take the news?
Jazan made a big scene swearing he would never write again. He issued this big decree to destroy every writing implement in Qasala. Myself and the guards just hid all the castle writing implements in a cupboard. He will calm down soon enough.
Oh Hanso's just off sulking in his room, plotting thefts against SunnyNeo. Don't worry though; I know where he keeps his plan blueprints. Sometimes the blue crayon stick people are a little hard to decipher but I can usually stop him in the act.
Haha, have any priceless Qasalan artifacts to return to me today?
Not today Nabile. Again I am sorry about last time. Jazan must've been very worried about that ring.
Oh no! It's mostly Jazan's fault for making himself such a victim. He is so arrogant sometimes he takes no notice of the people around him. Besides, what can you do? Hanso is an Ixi after all.
Ha! Arrogance! Have you seen Hanso? Or should I say HANSOme?
*Both girls sit around gigging for a moment before finding the match results.*
I think we should be a little more organized than those two Brynn, do you agree?
I do, why not go in alphabetical order. Start with Altador with something like. ‘Altador proved today that you can’t fight fire with fire. Though they won their match against Team Moltara in the Yooyuball division the more contemporary games seemed to get them stuck as they lost all three’
I think that is a great idea. Oh look Brynn, Brightvale did pretty well. Congratulations. They may have lost Yooyuball and drawn on Slushie Slinger but they won the other two games. Will Hanso be pleased?
Actually no. Just between you and me, the strong and mighty master thief actually goes for Faerieland. I am not meant to tell anyone as it will “ruin his image”. Poor thing though, he isn't very pleased about his current standings.
Oh look at Darigan Citadel and Kreludor, I am always very impressed when a team wins all four events.
Yes Kiko Lake did pretty well too they only won all their games against Tyrannia except Shootout Showdown which they drew. You know a few days ago Meridell did that to the Lost Desert, won all the games. You should have seen Jazan, he cried out in an outrage claiming that the cheated, demanding a rematch. He just can’t stand to lose.
Meridell has been doing pretty well in the standings though Nabile. Even today they won two games against Krawk Island and only drew on Shootout Showdown. They only lost make some noise.
Try telling Jazan that when he’s gone Mr Grumpy glowing red eyes.
Oh I guess that would be difficult. Where should we put Maraqua in the report? They only won Yooyuball today and lost all other events against Roo Island.
I think we should put them right here. That’s done then. Good Job Brynn, it was lovely working with you.
You too Nabile, I suppose we should present it now.
Hello there and welcome to SunnyNeo's daily match report. Unfortunately Callie cannot make it today so she asked myself and Brynn to take over. It was a very exciting day in Altador yesterday as crowds gathered for day 15 of the Altador Cup.
Nabile and I have a new system today where we are going to take you through the results alphabetically in a nice, organized manner.
That's right readers! What a treat!
*A voice calls from off in the distance* Sorry Ladies, out of time, that will have to do!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 14
Welcome back to Day 14 of Altador Cup VII! It's a lovely day to be alive, isn't it? The sun is shining in Altador, spilled slushies stick to your shoes and Yooyuballs fly over your head. I just love that. Onto those results!
Those mischievous Krawks are up to their old tricks again, taking another sweep, this time against Team Terror Mountain. It seems Team Krawk Island wasn't going to let an almost sweep happen again this time! Congrats to you crazy yooyuball throwing pirates.
This time fire obliterates water when Team Mystery Island took on Kiko Lake. They went in for the kill today, taking no prisoners. Three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown with Team Kiko Lake winning at least Slushie Slinger.
Merry Christmas Team Faerieland! You just got swept. Oh, wait, that's not a present... hmph, seems like our writers miscalculated this one. Oh well! A second sweep? How snazzy! There's only three this round, after all. Congrats yet again to the famous sweepers Team Meridell for winning another round.
Another cute tie hits the Altador Cup! It seems not many people are out for blood this season. Maybe it's just those Krawks and Darigans. Team Lost Desert takes a win in Slushie Slinger and two draws in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise while Team Brightvale wins Shootout Showdown.
Oh no! This Yooyu's trapped in a box. How sad.. It's too adorable to be kept in a box! Looks like Team Tyrannia put it there so that Team Moltara couldn't even touch it for a chance at a win. Tyrannia almost sweeps Moltara with three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise and a draw in Shootout Showdown. Wow! Congrats Tyrannia for such a manly display of talent.
Looks like crazy.. I mean, Evil Dr. Sloth has no mind control over Team Altador's playing, who almost ties Virtupets today! I'm still mad they took our slushies. Karma! This is the most playing we've seen from Altador thus far. Team Virtupets takes two wins in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise while Altador takes a win in Slushie Slinger and a draw in Shootout Showdown.
Almost another tie comes around in the match of Roo Island and Darigan Citadel. Who won this round? Another drum roll, please and thank you! *drrdrrrdrrrr*Team Darigan Citadel! Shocker, I know, considering Team Roo Island was able to take a sweep yesterday against Haunted Woods. Looks like those Blumaroos just weren't able to bounce their way to a win today! Darigan Citadel wins Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown while Roo Island draws Slushie Slinger and wins Make Some Noise.
Kreludor takes the last sweep of the day against Team Maraqua today! We honestly don't know what happened. Maybe water disappears on Team Kreludor since they have no gravity? We need scientists to test this out, really it's just a theory. We just can't find a test subject...
Shenkuu takes an almost sweep against Team Haunted Woods today. Looks like those sketchy trees aren't as intimidating on the field than they are on their own turf. Must have forgotten that clown with the pies at home then. Haunted Woods takes a draw in Yooyuball while Team Shenkuu takes their three wins in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
That's all for today folks! Only two days left to enter SunnyNeo's Customisation Spotlight for the Altador Cup. Have some amazing clothes for one specific team? Then you should enter! Check back tomorrow for another daily match report.

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 13
Look out! There's a Yooyuball coming straight at your head! AHH! Just kidding. The only thing flying at your head is a slushie. *SPLAAT!* ...Oops. Besides your bright, slushie covered head, there's another thing making headlines for the thirteenth day in a row; Altador Cup VII. Let's get into those smashing results now.
At least it's sparkles on your head!!
Shout out to Team Krawk Island for scoring one of three sweeps of the day! We could say how they did it, but honestly that's for their knowledge only. Just know it involved lots of scoring and screaming! But then again, isn't that how everyone else does it? If not, you really should try it one of these days. Team Faerieland and Krawks do not mix apparently. What do these winged faeries mix with, anyways? Only other faeries? How boring.
It's an almost sweep today for Team Mystery Island, taking wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and a draw in Shootout Showdown. Heat and snow don't correspond well, according to Team Terror Mountain. Yeah, okay. It's not like we haven't heard that one before, right? Let's just give them the benefit of the doubt.
Probably the toughest match out there today was Meridell vs. Team Kiko Lake. Now who won this one? Drum roll please! *drrdrrrdrrrr*Team Meridell! Congrats to the Uni riding, sword bearing competitors who have been dominating this competition so far. With two wins in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise and draws in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, there's no question who won this one!
That Evil Dr. Sloth is back at it again, this time mind controlling Team Moltara after their one win in Shootout Showdown against Team Virtupets. That being said, Virtupets takes wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. There are no conspiracy theories here today, we all KNOW it had to do with Dr. Sloth. Hmpfh. I wasn't aware this competition could be mind controlled! *mind controls for more slushies*
Evil Dr. Sloth: Hey SunnyNeo! No more slushies for you. SunnyNeo: *cries for slushies*
The horns came out today but weren't sharp enough in the battle against Team Brightvale and Team Tyrannia. Why? Because it's another tie! Yet another happy ending. These are great, aren't they? Two draws in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown with Tyrannia taking a fantastic win in Slushie Slinger and Brightvale winning Make Some Noise. Congrats to both teams!
The crowds and sandstorms gather around the Colosseum to watch the almost sweep Team Lost Desert scores against Team Altador. Looks like the sun in Lost Desert just burns brighter than Altador's. Must be great for getting that summer golden glow! Either way it was an amazing match with Team Lost Desert drawing in Yooyuball and taking wins in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Team Kreludor takes the second of three sweeps today, this time against Team Shenkuu. Ouch, I wonder what it feels like to be burned so badly by Kreludor. And they don't even have gravity! I wonder how that even helps them, don't you? Doesn't it just make you float..? It seems that pottery idea worked on Shenkuu once again because the crowds went wild when moons started flying towards easily frightened Shenkuu.
Darigan Citadel got their feet caught in a reef for the game of Make Some Noise against Team Maraqua yesterday. However, they were still able to get back up for all three games of Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Three wins is still amazing! Congrats to Team Darigan Citadel.
Those tricky Blumaroos of Team Roo Island have been faking for days, making us think they couldn't win. Sike! Looks like they got their swag back, taking home the last of three sweeps of the day. Congrats to Roo Island and better luck next time Team Haunted Woods! Orange and black just didn't show up to play yesterday. Hopefully that's not the case tomorrow.
That's it for today! I really want my slushies back Evil Dr. Sloth. I don't think I can live without them! *drinks juice* Sigh, it's just not the same. Check back tomorrow for another daily report, and remember that we're starting our AC VII Customisation Spotlight today!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 12
It's the start of the third round in Altador Cup VII, meaning we now have new brackets. It'll be quite exciting to see who beats who this round because it seems we have a lot of dedicated, tough competitors out there! Now let's get to Day 12's results, shall we?
Team Haunted Woods gets a shock today when they played Brightvale, who would've crushed them if they didn't get a win in Make Some Noise and a draw in Slushie Slinger. It looks like screaming and slushies is what helps win everything this year! Team Brightvale got really great results today, taking wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown.
Not surprising that Team Kreludor takes a sweep against Altador since barely anyone can beat this team! Not that it can't be done, though. Team Altador says they needed some "break time" after actually deciding to play in the second bracket. It's always good to take a break, just don't take them for so long next time Altador! Hopefully today they play again and get some solid wins in there.
Our second sweep of the day goes to the smashingTeam Darigan Citadel for their amazing hard work against Team Virtupets. It seems Darigan pets really are more evil than flying, no gravity Virtupets. Looks like I bet wrong!
Team Tyrannia takes an almost sweep today against Team Faerieland, who barely saves themselves with a draw in Shootout Showdown. Tyrannia takes three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. It seems Faeries also don't like a lot of heat, so I guess they should stay out of the kitchen, right? It burns their wings, according to them.
Splashing around their little lake abode, Team Kiko Lake decided to hydrate Mystery Island today with their three wins in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Team Mystery Island was slightly de-flamed but was able to stay ablaze long enough to get one win in Yooyuball. Looks like they forgot there are four games, not just one!
Water versus fire, who will win this one? Water, of course! Team Maraqua is quite happy about their sweep against Team Moltara, never taking their eyes off those shifty Yooyuballs for one second. You never know when one might explode and knock you out of your socks! Maraqua has been splish splashing around all morning, so who knows what today's results will be?
A very intense rivalry against Team Meridell and Team Krawk Island took place yesterday, both teams in distress over the possibility of a sweep. Unfortunately Meridell gets a dent in their almost clean record. At least it's only a small dent, nothing to contact your insurance about! Meridell takes three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise with a draw in Shootout Showdown.
Apparently there was a sandstorm rolling around yesterday. Where you say? In Terror Mountain? No way. Oh, wait, this could only be related to the fact Team Lost Desert and Team Terror Mountain challenged each other to a duel yesterday! And what a smashing game is was. Lost Desert takes two wins in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger and a draw in Make Some Noise. Terror Mountain has victory in at least one game, which was Shootout Showdown.
It's an absolute tie. Seriously, no one could win. No one. Team Roo Island rejoices about their win in Make Some Noise and celebrates alongside their new friends Team Shenkuu, who won Shootout Showdown. Everyone loves a happy ending! Especially me. *cough* So make it happen. There were also two draws in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger.
That's it for our coverage today! Good luck in your new brackets and play hard today. I'm sure your team is counting on you. Check out our Slushie Slinger Guide if you need any tips or help at all with that game. Have fun and let the slushies soar!
Stop, drop and Yooyuball! GOOOAAAALLLL!!!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 11
After the big reveal of the new premium, we all have to stop ogling and get back to the more important things online: Altador Cup VII. There's only one more day until the third round matches start. Time flies when you're in Altador! Now here we go again with the daily match report.
It seems Team Brightvale is too bright today. If you can't stand the sun, well.. don't stand there! Team Virtupets learned this very important lesson when going up against the sunshine town that they really couldn't compete. They got only one win in Make Some Noise and a draw in Slushie Slinger while Brightvale sun blasted their way to two victories in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. It must be the Wheel of Knowledge again!
Team Haunted Woods creeps out Team Altador so badly they could only manage two draws in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. It seems Haunted Woods has fully recovered from the brutal tree-slashing they got days prior, taking two wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown.
Kreludor finds out just how close their match-up against Team Darigan Citadel is when they went head-to-head yesterday, barely taking this match as a win. The rivalry fierce and the competition tough, these two teams bared all. Slushies and Yooyus were flying everywhere with many people loosing their voices. Team Kreludor wins Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger with a draw and Make Some Noise. Darigan Citadel takes a win in Shootout Showdown.
Team Moltara takes one of two clean sweeps of the day, leaving Team Faerieland sobbing over their loss. Those poor faeries just can't get a break from their loosing streak, can they? Too bad they're crying too hard to focus on the games. Puffy eyes and bright screens do not mix. Pillows, however, do. After all this Shootout Showdown I need a nap!
Fire versus heat? Spicy! Team Tyrannia and Mystery Island heated up the Colosseum yesterday, throwing fireballs and heat after each other. It's harder to scorch with just heat though, the plants on Mystery Island are used to it. That's probably why Team Mystery Island barely pulled a win, taking Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown along with a draw in Slushie Slinger. Tyrannia took one win in Yooyuball.
It got wet and wild when Team Maraqua and Kiko Lake splashed into their competitions. The janitor must really hate them, he had to mop all the puddles up! It can get quite messy here in Altador some days. Especially the scorching fireballs, those are toughies. Meela Kitah commented on Team Kiko Lake's win, saying, "I'm so glad we took the win today. We worked so hard and everyone contributed in any way they could. We really pulled this one together." With two wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown and a draw in Make Some Noise I'd be happy too! Maraqua also swirled their way to a win in Yooyuball.
Victory for Team Krawk Island today is all anyone can talk about, especially against Team Roo Island. Looks like it's those Blumaroos again, it seems their owners are more focused on them then the games. That's not good! Krawk Island takes three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Roo Island shows off their screaming skills, winning Make Some Noise.
It's a straight, even tie between Team Terror Mountain and Team Shenkuu. This means there's no winner, just a draw, so both teams win. Yay! I love happy endings. Draws in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise with Shenkuu taking Slushie Slinger and Terror Mountain victorious in Shootout Showdown.
Team Lost Desert found out that it's not a great idea to throw sand in Team Meridell's direction. Especially not their eyes. *cough* Once they got all the sand out of their hair and mouth, Meridell demolished Lost Desert with a clean sweep. Ouch, that one must hurt someone's ego. Meridell couldn't be more happy today, ecstatic about their constant flow of wins.
And that's it for today! Check back tomorrow at our Altador Cup Coverage page for yet another Daily Match Report. Thanks for reading!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report Day 10 - Petey!
Hello everyone I’m Petey, your Altador Cup VII host for the day! Today’s theme will focus on something very near and dear to my heart: Snorkles. Yes, okay, I know. Snorkles have nothing to do with the Altador Cup. Fine. But you know what does? The Tournament Rules. Maybe you can flip through those while I ramble on about all my Snorkle friends in different lands today. *grumbles*
Somehow Team Altador keeps at it long enough to take a win in Slushie Slinger. That's two days in a row that they've actually won something! Congrats Altador. And then there's Team Virtupets, with their oh-so fancy three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Well, they're still not as cool as my wings and curly tail. Let's be honest.
He's blue because he can't breathe up on Kreludor! You'd think they would've given him a mask or something for Oxygen. That dang Evil Dr. Sloth has never been a fan of us Snorkles. How rude, we're so cute! Oh, wait. That's probably why he hates us. We're cute. Team Kreludor wins Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger with Team Brightvale taking two draws in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Team Darigan Citadel takes a major sweep today against Team Haunted Woods! Really though, both team's Snorkles scare me. One's ghostly and the other has spikes. Wait, what was that? Why didn't I get an interview? Why would I want to be around that! Of course I didn't get an interview, are you crazy?! I think you are.
Look at how adorable she is! Aww, such a cute lei headband she has for Team Mystery Island. I wonder where she got it. It really is a mystery! However, their team's scores for today, are not. Almost a full sweep against Team Moltara, only one small draw in Slushie Slinger, with three win for Mystery Island in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
You'd think them being able to fly, like me, would give them some sort of advantage right? I'm ashamed to say that, as a flying pig, my flying Team Faerieland friends were not able to come up with any wins today. Boo! However, Team Kiko Lake takes a clean sweepin' to the Colosseum today, coming up with four wins. Congrats! Too bad I don't like water, or I'd go celebrate with them.
Ahh, the prehistoric Snorkle. That can only come from one place! The past. Also known as Team Tyrannia. These Pterattack champions were able to snag two wins in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger against Team Maraqua. However it seems they got too dehydrated and couldn't get enough water off of Maraqua to be able to win the last two rounds, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Those two wins go to Maraqua!
Who could've ever thought Team Terror Mountain would pull out a win against Team Krawk Island? "They'll win when Snorkles fly." HEY! Oh, wait, I am flying. Awkward. Well, then I guess they deserve the win! Terror Mountain takes their only win Make Some Noise and a draw in Shootout Showdown. Krawk Island still terrorizes the field with their pirate hats and bones, winning both Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger.
Haven't you ever heard? Purple is a royal color. It's suitably fit for a king, okay? Team Meridell plays Team Shenkuu today, taking home a sweepity sweep sweep against the red and yellow team. Aww, that's too bad! I'm sure we were all rooting for Shenkuu in some small corner of our hearts. But it seems the competition was too strong and Shenkuu just couldn't javelin it up.
Team Lost Desert rounds up Day 10 with two smashing wins and draws! Team Roo Island's Blumaroos are getting more feisty lately, not allowing themselves to be put down by any other team. They're fighting for what they want, just like us Snorkles do! You can never have too much mud, trust me. Lost Desert takes wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, drawing in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise.
Hey! Don't eat that Snorkle Snout!! That was my brother. Okay, so maybe not MY brother. But that's my kin, so at least hold off until I'm gone. Rude. Anyways, that's it for today. Hopefully you enjoyed my report and send positive feedback so that maybe one day I can report for you again!
Hopefully no one gets mad and does this to Petey!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 9
Hello once again everyone and welcome to Day 9 of SunnyNeo's Altador Cup VII coverage! The second NC VIP pass is also selling in the NC Mall today as well. Purple and gold? Snazzy! I know I can't wait to see the prizes from this VIP pass. Now let's get onto those results!
What a fancy top hat!!
The first match of the day goes to our wonderful power team Kreludor. This team sure has been sweeping the field ever since Day 1! That being said, Team Kreludor takes the first of five sweeps today, this time against Team Virtupets. It seems shifty *cough* that the Kreludan Mining Corp. has been having a lot of their workers working overtime on a "special project." They must be in cahoots with someone.
It seems Team Altador has finally got the ball rolling, this time taking a win in Slushie Slinger against one of the stronger teams, Team Darigan Citadel. That's pretty surprising considering the past results. Go Altador! However that's as far as they got, with Darigan Citadel taking three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
We have yet another tie in this year's games, with Team Haunted Woods and Team Brightvale both taking two wins. TNT sure knows how to match them for a great show! Haunted Woods takes their two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, while Brightvale won Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. Well done both teams!
Team Kiko Lake is on a roll again, this time against Team Moltara. Looks like water and cute houses beats lava any day. You can't scorch this team down! Let's put that on the bad ideas list, shall we? Kiko Lake gets the second sweep of the day absolutely obliterating Moltara. We don't know what went wrong for Moltara, honest. Looks like they just couldn't get out of bed yesterday. It was Saturday, after all!
Maraqua takes another blow to their scores, while Team Mystery Island takes yet another victory! Don't worry Team Maraqua, I'm sure you'll get your mojo back. For your sake in the games, let's hope it's soon! The Tiki Tack Tomobola Man is still dancing his butt off, being Mystery Island's personal cheerleader for their wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. Maraqua splashed their way to one draw in Shootout Showdown. Phew!
It seems like when you have spikes on your Chombies tails Team Faerieland just can't take you on! The cushy lifestyle of a Faerie was disturbed when prehistoric Tyrannia stomped into their land. It was more like crashed, really. Maybe the Yooyu on their team logo helps them out! Anyways, Team Tyrannia takes the third sweep of the day, never even batting an eye for this win. Wow.
The skull and bones team Krawk Island takes another sweeping victory, this one over Team Shenkuu. Looks like meditation is starting to fail. When other teams find out your secret I suppose they'll do anything to ruin that. Especially those ruthless Krawks! Team Krawk Island takes a cue from Lost Desert and started throwing as many loud objects as they could, including a few squawking parrots. It was madness!
Looks like Team Meridell is addicted to sweeping. Maybe they could do my kitchen for me today! Roo Island's Blumaroos were bouncing for too long yesterday that when they finally decided to sit down they were too dizzy to play any Yooyuball. Oh no! You'd think them being Blumaroos and all they'd be used to this. But apparently not. Team Roo Island won absolutely no games yesterday, with Meridell taking the fourth sweep of the day.
Stripes are Lost Desert's good luck charm today and Team Terror Mountain's enemy. I didn't know you could have enemies with a pattern, but apparently you can. Awkward! It seems those stripes are quite hypnotizing to slushie makers Terror Mountain because they couldn't even conjure up one win. Ouch. That must hurt, especially since they had a slushie stand set up yesterday. They make great slushies though! Team Lost Desert celebrates too hard, this time sending sand into the crowd's eyes. Whoopsie. It was an accident, they promise!
Have some spare time in between Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown? Take our What Yooyu Are You? Quiz! That's it for today, check back tomorrow for a specialreport involving a cute little Snorkle!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 8
We're one third of the way through Altador Cup VII because today is Day 8! I hope you all are on your way to All Star. That pretty gold shield is calling your name this year, right? Mine too. Check out our Altador Cup Ranks page to learn how to get there!
It seems the trees grew back today because Team Haunted Woods takes their fourth and fifths wins of the season! Virtupets talked about how they had some malfunctions with their Grundos taking over the world or something. Team Virtupets wouldn't release any more information; That Evil Dr. Sloth seems to have them in some kind of trance where they only say what he wants. Weird. They took a win in Yooyuball and a draw in Slushie Slinger with Haunted Woods taking two wins in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown! Congrats on your first overall win, you haunted big trees.
Kreludor takes their second draw of the season, this time against Team Darigan Citadel. However they still managed three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. That takes work and determination! Darigan Citadel was happy about their draw, especially against Team Kreludor.
Altador and Team Brightvale both came to play today, with Brightvale barely taking a lead against the sunny land of Altador with their two wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. Team Altador takes a draw in Slushie Slinger and a win in Make Some Noise. The Wheel of Knowledge really gives Brightvale their advantages sometimes!
Tyrannia takes an almost sweep against Team Moltara today! It seems that molten lava against heat doesn't really work very well as a fighting tactic. Team Tyrannia laughed at Moltara's decision to fight with lava when everything in Tyrannia is already scorched. Guess that's what happens when you forget you're playing with ancient Chombies. Tyrannia gets three wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise! Moltara still made things inconvenient enough for Tyrannia to get a win in Shootout Showdown.
Team Kiko Lake takes the first sweep of day against Team Maraqua. It's those cute little buildings again, isn't it? It seems everyone seems to get distracted by them lately. Kiko Lake takes wins in all four categories; Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Congrats on the sweep! That really takes talent to win all four!
The cooking pot seems to be heating up in Mystery Island, giving everyone enough energy to take on Team Faerieland yesterday. Everyone on Team Mystery Island has cause for celebration, taking the second of four sweeps of the day! There must be something they're feeding these guys, because they've been a strong powerhouse ever since Altador Cup VII started. Wow!
The scary island of Krawks takes the third sweep of the day, absolutely dominating Team Roo Island. The Blumaroos have officially stopped hopping today. How depressing! I love watching those little 'roos bounce! Congrats to Team Krawk Island for their third sweep of this season. That's a lot! Maybe after all this is over we'll finally get a comment from the team of notorious, "No comment we're working too hard," statements we get every day of the tournament. Oh well, at least they get results from that! Who cares about fame, anyways? Sometimes avoiding us just gets our attention more.
Team Lost Desert decided to show us a new move, throwing pottery at their meditating competition, Shenkuu. Looks like someone finally shook things up and disturbed Team Shenkuu's peace! Never seen that much pottery thrown in my lifetime, have you? Always crazy things going on during Altador Cup season! Lost Desert takes two wins in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger, drawing against Shenkuu in the last two competitions, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
The last match of the day was Team Meridell vs. Team Terror Mountain. We end this Altador Cup report with the last of four sweeps, this one going to Meridell! They have so many castles and crowns on their heads it looks like Terror Mountain got intimidated and decided to sit this one out. Probably a smart choice. No one wants a fleet of Meridell citizens going after them, right? Right.
Want your pet to be snazzy and spirited? Remember that we have many Altador Cup VII graphics, including Altador Cup Pet Lookups! Start using one today. That's it for Day 8 of the Altador Cup, check back tomorrow for another update and fancy writing spiel about what happened!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 7
It's been a week since Altador Cup VII started and you know what that means! New brackets as of yesterday, more intense rivalries and, sadly, a third of the way through the cup. Boo! Make it longer again, TNT. Pretty please? Well, while my pleas go unanswered, let's get to what you came here for! Here are today's results.
Team Darigan Citadel takes another sweep yesterday against Team Brightvale. Not too surprising considering how much they've won in the past. They're quite the intimidating team so far! Hopefully they continue their sweeping streak. Right now their biggest opponents will be Kreludor (25 wins) and Mystery Island (24 wins). Currently Darigan Citadel stands with 19 wins. Pretty impressive!
It seems Team Altador finally wakes up, taking a draw in Slushie Slinger. Looks like they finally got some players! However not enough effort was put in by this team because Team Virtupets still managed an almost sweep with wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Hopefully Altador's sun has mystical magic powers that helps them finally win something?
It seems a mysterious zero gravity axe chopped down Haunted Woods today when Team Kreludor popped into town. Now who could've done such a horrendous thing?! Poor trees. Good thing they grow back within a few days. Hopefully they don't see this as a big loss with Kreludor getting the second sweep of the day. Time for Team Haunted Woods to try harder! Maybe they can recruit that scary clown with the pies. That would surely make everyone run away at top speed. Especially me.
Queen Fyora ordered everyone in Faerieland to not compete today. National bow down to Fyora day, perhaps? We honestly don't know, they wouldn't let anyone without wings in. How rude! We all know that Team Maraqua sweeped the field since, well, Team Faerieland was too preoccupied watching their festivities than to play the actual games. Oh well!
It's a tie! No, really, your shoe's untied. Don't trip please, no one wants to face plant! Especially in front of all those people. Not. Pretty.Team Tyrannia and Team Kiko Lake both had cause to celebrate with each team taking home 2 wins. What a solid match! Tyrannia takes Yooyuball and Make Some Noise with Kiko Lake taking their two wins at Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.
It seems Team Mystery Island has just as much fire in their step as Team Moltara. More, actually. Yet another almost sweep happened today, with Moltara only taking home a draw in Slushie Slinger. Awe, that's too bad. Mystery Island is celebrating today with the Tiki Tack Tombola Man with wins in the other three games, Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Congrats!
Something Has Happened! You hear the cackling of a MAD PIRATE CAPTAIN. Uh, just kidding. That's just Team Krawk Island giggling at Team Lost Desert for their triumph with an almost sweep against the sandy savages. Lost Desert stormed their way into a big draw in Yooyuball, with Krawk Island taking three wins in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Keep it up you cackling Krawks!
Team Terror Mountain is sad about all the tail marks in their slushie snow today when Team Roo Island took over. It seems the bright sunny island not only melted their snow but they ate the grass underneath it as well! Well, I don't know if that's rude. Blumaroo's got to eat too, you know. Roo Island wins Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise barely letting Terror Mountain to take Shootout Showdown. At least they gave them that one.
"We have every right to be winning in the Vaeolus bracket. We deserve to be first place and Krawk Island doesn't stand a chance against us in the future games," Team Captain "Wizard" Windelle of Team Meridell comments today about their sweep against Team Shenkuu. It seems they are quite confident they will keep their lead on everyone this week! Good luck to you all.
Remember that we have an Altador Cup Goodies page with everything you dream of and more for all your Altador Cup VII graphics! Just don't remove credit, because that's rude. That's it for today's report, check back tomorrow for Day 8!
Maybe if we all read this we'd be more compassionate and not need to fight.
But what fun would that be?! Go Altador Cup VII!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report Day 6 - HANSO ROCKS!
Ahem. Sunnyneo followers. I apologise for my late arrival. It appears that Sunnyneo staffers also get caught up in "jury duty" and though I am still yet to discover its meaning, once again it falls to my own heroics to save the day. Joy....
Come on Mr Grumpy Pants, no need to be so sarcastic.
Wha? Uh? Argh. What are you doing here you rogue?!
The Daily Match Report! See I already started! "Team Faerieland took an enourmouse win against the other team today. Hope seemed to fail them when with only an hour left they lost their star player to a case of the 'scratchies'. Luckily Hanso was in the crowd...uhhh 'watching' the game. The heroic and devilishly HANSOme Hanso joined the team and won the victory! *the crowd goes wild*"
You fool! You just made that up! *Jazan pulls out a piece of paper with the actual match standings recorded* For one thing faerieland lost every game possible yesterday and for another you spelt enormous wrong and 'handsome' has a 'd' in it.Oh no and what did you do to the title?
Everything I wrote was true and I say that you can't spell hansome without Hanso.
Is that so you snivelling rogue. In that case you can tell me what team you played against no problem.
I was playing for Faerieland.
The other team.
The one we played against?
What about them?
Who were they!
Hey, calm down. Don't get your knickers in a twist. You see Jazan, I don't actually bother to learn other teams names, it is really just faerieland I care about.
What colour were they wearing then?
Ahah! Liar! Yesterday Faerieland was matched against Darigan Citadel who wear black and purple.
Of course they do! The sun was just in my eyes, it made the purple look blue!
Oh I give up. Just read the next teams report.
Okay. "The Lost Desert was humiliated today when all players actually ran screaming from the field at the sight of some of the Haunted Wood's players"
Nonsense! The Lost Desert is strong and brave, after all, they have me to look up to! We won two out of four of those games and drew the other two! It is clear to me that you do not have the responsibility for this job Hanso. I think I shall relieve you from your duties.
Now here are the actual scores Kreludor vs Brightvale: Kreludor wins all but Shootout Showdown. Meridell vs Altador: Meridell wins all. Tyrannia vs Kiko Lake: Kiko Lake wins all.
Ugh BORING. You have to give it a bit more pizazz.
Pizazz....? Is that another word for lies?
Yeah make it more interesting. Here give me the paper?
No. I told you rouge this is my job now, you had your chance.
Fine. I'll just keep this pretty trinket then. *Hanso holds up a golden ring marked with the letters N and J*
What?! How did you?! Give that back immediately! Nabile gave that to me!
Give me the paper.
Okay seeya wouldn't wanna be ya!
*Hanso moves to the door and Jazan chases after him, hurling insults and leaving the paper behind. You reach down and pick it up reading the remaining results*
"Terror Mountain and Shenkuu found themselves equal today Terror Mountain won Yooyu ball and Shootout Showdown and lost the others, you guys can probably make some joke about ice.
Mystery Island won all four games against Roo Island. There is some opportunity for an Island pun there (get it?) make the most of it.
Maraqua and Virtupets won two each, Maraqua winning Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown.
Krawk Island also won all four games against Moltara.
Thankyou so much guys for filling in for us. Please don't fight too much!
The Sunnyneo Staff"

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 5
Hello again everyone and welcome to day 5 of Altador Cup VII! Rivalries, hard work and extreme scores is what makes up today's results. Remember to take a look at our Shootout Showdown guide for help with getting those goals in! Let's get onto those results now.
Team Kreludor steals yet another victory in day five, almost sweeping all the water off of Team Kiko Lake! They took home wins in three out of four games; Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Kiko Lake finally got their stroke back once they saw they're quite fantastic at slinging slushies. Kiko Lake got one win in with Slushie Slinger.
Oops! Looks like Turmy decided to roll over onto the competition. Of course there were some injuries after almost fully incapacitating them. Team Meridell won three games and one draw against Team Brightvale today, absolutely obliterating the competition. Even though Brightvale lost Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown, they were happy to still take a draw in Yooyuball. What great sports!
It seems Team Altador once again falls down on the job, flailing in their yooyuball scoring. Team Tyrannia was happy to take home the first full sweep of the day, with left forward Wila Benne adding, "We're such a strong team that Altador didn't even have a chance and we're unforgiving when you go up against us. Pretty much, don't." Very confident from Tyrannia's side. Altador has no comment. Is there anyone even on this team this year?
Team Terror Mountain can't seem to get a break with their snow still melted and all. Team Mystery Island takes home the second sweep of the day, winning in all four competitions: Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise AND Shootout Showdown. Keep the yooyu's rolling Terror Mountain!
Looks like that crazy tree of theirs can't save them when it comes down to playing Team Shenkuu. Team Haunted Woods takes a sad loss today, only winning Make Some Noise and drawing Yooyuball. Shenkuu and their meditation tactics seems to really be helping the red and yellow team; Never giving up seems to really work for them!
That great river in Lost Desert seems to have dried up for the duration of Make Some Noise, the one game that Team Roo Island won. However, it sporadically started raining, giving Team Lost Desert the strength that they needed to take the reigns and win Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Good job LD!
The oh-so feared Team Darigan Citadel strikes again, pulling out two wins against their hardest competition yet, Krawk Island. Neither team had any comments, barely muttering about how they needed to focus on beating each other to a pulp in the next round. Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger were both draws for Team Krawk Island, with Darigan Citadel taking wins in Make Some Noise and Slushie Slinger.
Team Moltara versus Team Virtupets was almost an even match, with Moltara barely winning this round of games. They took major wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, and a draw in Yooyuball. Virtupets highly boasted about their single win in Make Some Noise, noting that that's all they wanted. I doubt that's true but okay!
A whirlpool seemed to crash into Team Faerieland yesterday when Team Maraqua swam into their town. A great backstroke can be very dangerous towards any team! Maraqua took major wins when they sweeped Faerieland, leaving nothing to the imagination when Right Defender Barit Jowes described their win. "I know it sounds like I'm boasting but I'm really not. We demolished them, and plucked their wings off one by one. We deserve this sweep, we did amazing out there yesterday."
Seems everyone has been working really hard to try to beat each other in the past few days. Keep it up Neopians! And remember - Yooyu's do not like to be bitten. So keep the biting to a minimum!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 4
Welcome to Day 4 of Altador Cup VII! Confused on all the Altador Cup lingo? Check out all the translations on our Abbreviations & Common Terms page! But don't get too lost in SunnyNeo and forget to play. I'm sure your team wouldn't appreciate that. Let's roll into today's results!
Hopefully my makeup looks right for today's results!
Looks like those cute buildings couldn't help Team Kiko Lake as they lose their winning streak against Team Meridell yesterday. It seems Meridell brought out their knights and horses to take wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The cute buildings decided they should distract Meridell with their cuteness for a moment, stealing a win in Slushie Slinger.
Team Kreludor strikes again! With yet another bulldozing tactic, Kreludor takes their third clean sweep, the first of three today. Team Altador was visibly upset, getting more hysterical by the moment. Maybe that's why they seem to be losing every game? They can't see through their tears.
It looks like we have our first fully even match! When Team Tyrannia and Team Brightvale woke up this morning both teams had cause to celebrate, with each team winning in two competitions. Yooyuball and Make Some Noise goes to Tyrannia with Brightvale taking Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.
It seems Team Haunted Woods couldn't get over their fear of Team Mystery Island to actually play them yesterday. Oopsie. Mystery Island gets the second clean sweep of the day, absolutely abolishing Haunted Woods in the competition. Something must be in that sparkly water of theirs.
The Pyramids Game staff is complaining because everyone seemed to switch from that game to Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise! Team Lost Desert took home wins in all three of those, leaving Team Terror Mountain sobbing over their one win in Shootout Showdown. Looks like the snow is still not an asset for them. Hopefully they'll learn how to use it as one, and soon!
Almost another evenly matched pair, with Team Shenkuu barely making this a win by a landslide with Shootout Showdown! Team Roo Island and all their Blumaroos were still very proud of all their draws in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. The Centre Defender of Shenkuu Timu commented, "We're so proud of Shenkuu today. A landslide win is so much more satisfying than a sweep because then you know you were so close evenly matched but still won." Well said, Timu!
The most intense pair up of the day was definitely Team Maraqua versus Team Krawk Island. Like always, the two teams gave us a good rivalry, with Maraqua's captain Elon "The Black Hole" Hughlis stating, "We gave them a run for their money." Krawk Island takes two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, drawing in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. Krawk Island had no comment, too focused on beating Darigan Citadel today. Hopefully they are able to at least able to compete against the powerhouse team!
Team Moltara scorches the competition Team Faerieland, taking absolutely no prisoners with their sweep today! A volcano seemed to erupt on Faerieland yesterday, burning off the wings of Faerieland's key players. It seems Faerieland hasn't been very lucky keeping their wings intact lately! Maybe they should look after them better.
The powerhouse, Team Darigan Citadel, has been slaughtering their competition every single day of the Altador Cup with today as no exception. Team Virtupetssomehow managed a win in Make Some Noise, with Team Darigan Citadel taking home wins in all of the other competitions, Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.
Tomorrow should be exciting with our top two teams going head to head, Darigan Citadel and Krawk Island. Good luck to all our players today! Head out to our Altador Cup Graphics to show support for your favorite teams. Now get back to playing! *throws slushie*
Oops! Looks like this slushie got thrown too hard!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 3
Known for the ever so popular game Yooyuball, Altador Cup VII hits day 3 with a bang! Literally. There were five major sweeps today! Now instead of stalling with some Shootout Showdown metaphor, let's get onto the results.
So far Team Kiko Lake has surprised us all, scoring their way to a sweep against Team Altador. It seems the dam almost flooded Altador again, so most players had to spend their time repairing the levers. At least they fixed it, hopefully things will be better the next round for Altador. Lyvon Cibaire commented that, "Altador is disappointed but very happy for Kiko Lake's win." How nice!
Team Meridell takes in the day three's second sweep against Team Tyrannia, taking home all four wins! Tyrannia must've forgot to play with all the partying they were doing yesterday after their own sweep against Altador. Hopefully tomorrow brings better competition and participation after this tragic loss for Tyrannia.
It's Team Kreludor's week it seems after almost sweeping yesterday and taking home their second clean sweep of the season today! They must put something in the drinks at Cafe of Kreludor because Team Brightvale just couldn't handle the gravity... or lack there of.
Unfortunately too many of Team Lost Desert was distracted by the Tug-O-War game marathon going on to play in the Altador Cup. Team Mystery Island takes wins in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, drawing in Shootout Showdown and losing the last game Slushie Slinger to Lost Desert.
Team Haunted Woods takes some losses and draws today, not up for the challenge that is Team Roo Island. The blumaroo's today are bouncing around, quite excited about their two wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Haunted Woods fights back, drawing in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise. Team Captain of Haunted Woods Krell Vitor commented, "Today we'll fight harder and see more results. We can do this, we just have to put more effort and time in!" Well said, Krell.
Team Shenkuu's approach of zen and meditation is very efficient, showing exactly what calm and tactic approaches can achieve for your team! Two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise along with two draws against Team Terror Mountain in Shootout Showdown and Yooyuball.
The Armada seems to have obliterated any competition of Krawk Island! That means Team Faerieland seems to have even more disadvantages, now with bomb holes in their wings. All in a day's work for Team Krawk Island. They swept the board in every single game, including Faerieland's seemingly favorite game, Slushie Slinger. Wow!
Water advantages really seem to come in handy for Team Maraqua against Team Virtupets even though there are no water events! Unless you count sticky Slushie Slinger as a water event, which, personally, I do. Maraqua took home wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, a loss in Make Some Noise and a draw in Yooyuball.
Team Darigan Citadel, seemingly permanently in first place followed by Krawk Island and Maraqua, rounds up day three with the last sweep of the day. Team Moltara seems to have hit a water pipe while trying to scorch Darigan Citadel, fizzing out into nothingness for the whole day. Hopefully for Darigan Citadel they're able to keep their #1 spot for the whole tournament. No jinxing!
That’s it for today. Check back tomorrow and to see yet another Altador Cup VII daily report!
Cleaning Robot would like to remind you to help make his job easier!! Pick up after yourself!

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 2
I love the smell of Altador Cup VII in the morning! Yooyuballs everywhere, screaming fans, slushies and goal keepers? Best. Things. Ever. Day 2 of the Altador Cup brought in some interesting results today! Trying to figure out when you rank up? Use our Rank Calculator tool to figure out when you'll achieve the next rank! Now let's see those results.
Looks like Team Brightvale's light seems to have went out yesterday against Team Kiko Lake. Well, not everyone can have really cute buildings, I guess. They seem to be Kiko Lake's good luck charm! Kiko Lake takes home two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, drawing in Yooyuball. Brightvale managed to get a win in Shootout Showdown.
Team Tyrannia so far have been extremely impressive, taking home the only sweep of the day against Team Altador! It's too bad the hosts of Altador Cup VII can't seem to pull out any wins. Either way, we're very excited to see how Tyrannia competes against many other teams this season!
Space is quite the interesting thing, considering Team Kreludor seems to be killing this year! They took home an almost sweep against Team Meridell yesterday, absolutely crushing the competition. Kreludor won Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, only letting their guard down when it came to playing Make Some Noise.
Team Mystery Island seems to have the luck this week, considering they too also completed an almost sweep against Team Shenkuu. Seems like the Tiki Tack Tomobola man really is a good luck charm! They took wins in three of the four competitions: Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Shenkuu managed to at least draw with the game Slushie Slinger.
It seems TNT almost evenly matched Team Lost Desert and Team Roo Island today, but.....Roo Island took the majority! They took home wins in both Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. At least Lost Desert drew in Slushie Slinger and took home a big win in Yooyuball! Coltzan probably helped them achieve this, making all their team players stronger. Conspiracy theory? Maybe.
Team Haunted Woods and Team Terror Mountain were also almost evenly matched! However it seems all the snow had melted in Terror Mountain, giving them a slight disadvantage in yesterday's games. Oh no! At least they still won Shootout Showdown and drew in Yooyuball. Haunted Woods was proud to report about their two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise!
The most intense game was Team Krawk Island versus Team Darigan Citadel. Every game was a draw except for Make Some Noise, which Darigan Citadel barely won! It's practically a repeat of yesterday where Darigan Citadel barely beat Maraqua by one game as well. These are getting very intense!
Team Maraqua got very close to a sweep yesterday when they played against Team Moltara! Only one game was lost, which was Slushie Slinger. Looks like they really don't like that game, since that's what they lost yesterday. Maraqua won all of the other three games, Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.
Evil Dr. Sloth is up to his usual tricks with Team Virtupets, almost fully sweeping Team Faerieland in every single competition. It seems his death ray seemed to stop working during Slushie Slinger, but rest assured, he's back up to his usual tricks now. Virtupets took home wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. That death ray really works it seems.
Interviewer: How do you feel about the game you lost? Dr. Sloth: *ZAP!* 0:-)
Check back in tomorrow for yet another update on Altador Cup VII! Good luck to all the teams again, keep scoring against that shaking Jelly Chia. ;)
There is more Neocash news though. In the Future Fashions shop in the NC Mall, three new keyquest tokens are selling. These items will be selling in the regular NC Mall within 72 hours.

Altador Cup VII Daily Match Report - Day 1
Hello everyone, I'm Callie! I'll be your guide through all things Altador Cup VII, along with a few other SunnyNeo staff members. I'm very excited to be apart of SunnyNeo staff and to be the daily match reporter!
*Note - From now on Daily Match Reports will NOT show up on the homepage! You must go to the Altador Cup Coverage page to view these reports starting tomorrow.
Ahh, the smell of spilled slushies and crushed popcorn has never been sweeter. Fans started screaming just yesterday, meaning we have the Day 1 of the Altador Cup VII results hot off the presses! Can't figure out how to maneuver Yooyuball yet? Read our Yooyuball Guide for helpful tips and a review of the game. Now read on for our review of today's results!
Starting out the first day of the Altador Cup we have Team Kreludor's first clean sweep of the season! Team Tyrannia took all losses in Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise, Shootout Showdown and Yooyuball. Props to Kreludor!
Yet another clean sweep happened when Team Brightvale entered the stadium yesterday. Unfortunately for Team Altador they took home exactly zero wins. Looks like they forgot to play, or something.. Looks like the Wheel of Knowledge really helps with Yooyuball scoring! Congrats Brightvale.
Brown and green must be good luck charms because Team Kiko Lake won Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and drew in Make Some Noise. Captain "Poke" Cellers must be pretty proud right now! Team Meridell was still able to take home at least one win in Shootout Showdown.
It must've been too sunny for awhile in Roo Island because Team Terror Mountain only won one competition: Shootout Showdown. Team Roo Island must've been very excited to find out that they won Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise and drew in Yooyuball! Solid stats for the first day of competition.
Team Lost Desert conjured up a sandstorm when it came to competing against Team Shenkuu yesterday. They drew in Slushie Slinger and won both Yooyuball and Make Some Noise! Somehow Shenkuu redeemed themselves with a win in Slushie Slinger. Whew!
Competition is full blown when it comes to the first day of the Altador Cup VII because Team Mystery Island takes home the third clean sweep of the day! Team Haunted Woods was too upset to comment on this tragic loss, but no doubt Mystery Island is celebrating hardcore. Reports came bursting in about the Tiki Tack Tombola man dancing. Who knew he could move like that?!
Team Krawk Island sweeps the pants off of Team Virtupets with an almost clean sweep. They take home wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Virtupets should be lucky they even got a draw in Make Some Noise considering the spirit and determination of Krawk Island!
Not surprisingly Maraqua and Darigan Citadel were almost evenly matched, with Team Darigan Citadel taking home one win in Slushie Slinger, drawing all the rest with Team Maraqua. We at SunnyNeo have high hopes for the futures of these teams!
Moltara spewed out lava to cover their competition Team Faerieland. Faeries don't like lava. Or Moltara now, for that matter. Team Moltara takes home three wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Somehow Faerieland regained their composure, pulling out a draw in Slushie Slinger.
That's it for Day 1 of the Altador Cup! Make sure to check back daily to the Altador Cup Coverage page to see more reports like this one. Good luck to all the teams today!

All teams will be able to play on all 24 days, no matter how their team scores during the 4 rounds. As for player rankings, they will be recalculated to reflect the new format.
