Today is the last day you can enter for SunnyNeo's AC Customisation Spotlight!  Please enter any of your pets you'd like to enter before the end of the day if you haven't already.  We're super excited to see the results!  You can enter any of your pets whether they are on your main or sides.  It is okay to enter more than one pet, but only one entry per pet.  The pet must be wearing the wearables.  There will be two winners per team: NP Only and NC Included.  Paint Brush Clothing fine in either category.

Two entries winners from AC IX.  Meridell's NP Only, Brightvale's NC Included.

The results are in for SunnyNeo's Staff Tournament!  It appears that Team Home Town Heroes has secured their first place.  The only way to stop them now is if every other team pulls through and sends the Heroes to 5th place in the last week, and Team: The Best comes in 1st that week.  Team Home Town Heroes continues to improve in their standing in Yooyu Ball.  Week 1 they were in 5th, then Week 2 they were in 4th, and this Week 3 they came in 3rd.  They continue to hold strong on Slushie Slinger being undefeated in the game.  They also took back 1st place in Shootout Showdown, but once again landed in 2nd place for Make Some Noise.  It appears to be either or game for them on Make Some Noise or Shootout Showdown.  Team: The Best continues to try and take the down the leaders and have been all over with their game focus between weeks.  This week they took 4th in Yooyuball and 3rd place in both Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.  But they rallied together making the most noise coming in 1st on Make Some Noise which helped them secure a 2nd place this week.  It appears old rivalry returns between Team Haunted Path and Team Mad Scientists who both once again tied for 3rd place.  Team Haunted Path gave up playing Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise this week spending absolutely no effort in those games.  However, their concentration on Yooyuball landed them a 1st place victory in the game.  Like Team Home Town Heroes, they too improved each week going from 3rd, to 2nd, to 1st.  They also managed a 2nd place on Shootout Showdown.  Team Mad Scientists also focused on Yooyu Ball and managed a 2nd place.  However, the side games landed in 4th place each.  Team Aurora found itself back in 5th place this week.  Yooyu Ball and Shootout Showdown both got away from the team dispite their efforts landing in 5th place.  Their efforts in Slushie Slinger did not however go unnoticed and landed them a 2nd place in the game.  They did manage a 3rd place in Make Some Noise.  Can all the other teams take down Team Super Heroes next week to give Team: The Best a chance at an overall win?  Can Team: The Best even for the week take Team Home Town Heroes down?  Can Team Mad Scientists take down Team Haunted Path in this epic battle between the rivalry or will Team Haunted Path once again break away from them?  Can Team Aurora once again take Team Mad Scientists or even more teams?  This is the excitement of the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament.  Who will take this years cup??

We've received about 90 entries now in this years Altador Cup XI Customisation Spotlight.  We hope to see many more come in before June 26th. Since we are having a winner for NC Included and NP Only for each team, there are some teams we still need pets for.

Sorry for the delay - a certain scorekeep doesn't know how to plan her vacations around the AC, and put it right in the center of the AC month... *glares at self*  Anyway!  The SunnyNeo's AC XI Staff Tournament Week 2 scores have been tallied.  Team Home Town Heroes rides in once again at 1st place.  They managed to place 4th in Yooyuball - better than last weeks 5th place.  They held strong onto Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise taking first place in those two games.  However, unlike last week, Heroes slipped on their Shootout Showdown scores, taking 2nd in the last game.  Team: The Best took Shootout Showdown from the Heroes coming in on top.  They also came in 3rd place in the other three games.  It appears that Team Haunted Path pulled away from its tie with Mad Scientists and came in 3rd this week overall.  They took 2nd in Yooyuball which really helped them charge forward.  Shootout Showdown they were so close to the two top teams and nearly came in second, but fell just a hair short coming in 3rd.  Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise they held at a strong 4th place.  Team Aurora stepped up this week proving they aren't meant for the bottom.  Though they still fell in last for Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, they managed to take 2nd place Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.  Team Mad Scientists appeared to of put too much effort into one game this week and wound up on the bottom.  They took 1st place in Yooyuball, but took 4th in Shootout Showdown.  They also came in 5th place for Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.

If Team Home Town Heroes is to be stopped from snagging 1st place, they must be taken down this week.  Can another team step up and take them down or will they hold strong?  Can Team: The Best prove they are their namesake and rise up?  Team Haunted Path proved the victor of last weeks tie, can they hold on to their middle ground?  Team Aurora proved they weren't a bottom team, can they rise even further?  Team Mad Scientists fell from a tie down to last place, can they balance out their game play and manage to come back up in ranks once again?

Just a friendly reminder, please enter our AC Customisation Spotlight and show off your pets' team spirit!  We are accepting entries until June 26th by the end of the day.

Two entries winners from AC IX.  Tyrannia's NP Only, Shenkuu's NC Included.

Everybody run – it's a Queen Fyora takeover!! Oh, wait, isn't she supposed to be a benevolent Queen? Well, I mean, maybe you can stay at your computers.. this shouldn't be too bad.. At the very least we shall be entertained on our Day 15 results here at the Colosseum. Round 3 so far is turning out to be the most interesting – and competitive – round yet! *faerie swoosh*

Alabriss Bracket

Team Brightvale comes back at it again with a smashing victory, with high numbers on all their wins against Team Moltara. Much better – well, for Brightvale at least. Team Kiko Lake ties with two win in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise against Team Shenkuu on Day 16. How lovely it must be to not be bitter! Team Lost Desert rounds out today strong, only allowing Team Terror Mountain one win in Slushie Slinger. Coltzan must be talented this year!

Minitheus Bracket

And NOW the result you've all been waiting for: Team Faerieland sweeps out Team Virtupets. Alright, that's it, you can go back to playing. Just kidding, we've still got more to go! *grumbles at Queen Fyora* Team Roo Island gains Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger against Team Altador, shaking the day off with a tie. Lastly in this bracket is Team Mystery Island, who almost sweeps out Team Meridell, except in Shootout Showdown. We really shouldn't let that Jelly Chia take over the reports – the ground would shake too much!

Vaeolus Bracket

Team Krawk Island slams out almost all 6's against Team Maraqua, however it just wasn't enough in the games Slushie Slinger (5-6) and Make Some Noise (6-10). No, pirates, Queen Fyora will NOT tie your shoes for you. *hmph!* Team Kreludor steps up their game play as well, adding in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise wins against Team Darigan Citadel. No more sweepin' Kreludor! Team Tyrannia racks up some strong wins to end the day, adding in a sweep to their scores against Team Haunted Woods. Huzzah!

I'm creating a Fyora Taco Thursday
You are all welcome to *maybe* join!!

Just a reminder that today is the last day to submit your TNT Staff Tournament picks for the second round! Good luck, and check back tomorrow with updated scores. :)

We're in the middle of the month, with Day 14 results arriving at the Colosseum. Didn't it seem like just yesterday we were beginning this journey of Altador Cup XI? *sniff* Ah, well, I brought watermelon. It just seemed like the right thing to do! Here's those results.

Alabriss Bracket

We're definitely seeing Team Brightvale slip in the ranks a little bit, because on Day 14 they are tying in their games up against Team Lost Desert. Lost Desert takes Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. Team Shenkuu gains some luck, sweeping Team Moltara outta the games! Oh wait, no, we're not quite done yet. Team Kiko Lake almost wipes Team Terror Mountain out, only allowing one win in Shootout Showdown.

Minitheus Bracket

Queen Fyora is certainly influencing these faeries, as they are sweeping out the competition! Sorry Team Roo Island, maybe flying is a qualification for winning.. Team Altador doesn't compete too well against Team Mystery Island, only gaining one win to their three. Team Virtupets takes an 8-5 win in Slushie Slinger, but lets go of everything else to Team Meridell. Can I get knighted?!

Vaeolus Bracket

Team Tyrannia can't sweep the pirates, settling for a tie on Day 14 against Team Krawk Island. Tyrannia gains wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, showing scores of 7 for the second day in a row. What's with that number?? Also for the second day in a row is a sweeping force Team Darigan Citadel, this time taking out Team Kreludor. Huzzah – comeback team! Team Maraqua rounds out this bracket and day also with a sweep, letting Team Haunted Woods know who's really going to be haunting who.

Can we make this a new flavor
for Slushie Slinger?? Maybe I'd play more..

Posted by coalbox on 16th of June 2016 at 10:21 PM NST
Anddd bye day is over! We're back at the Colosseum for Altador Cup XI, with shiny new brackets. Don't scuff them up quite yet – argh, nevermind, I need to remember who I'm talking with! There's pirates and faeries in our midst. *shifty eyes* Let's see some Day 13 results!

*There is a BONUS on SOSD today!

Alabriss Bracket

Starting out strong is Team Brightvale, who only lost Yooyuball to Team Kiko Lake on Day 13. However, for this powerhouse team, this is a slight step back. On the other side of the scoreboard is Team Lost Desert, who stepped UP today, taking three wins to Team Moltara's one win in Make Some Noise. Screaming lessons, anyone? Team Shenkuu rounds it out, taking a tie with two wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise against Team Terror Mountain's two in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. Shake hands (it's chivalrous)! 

Minitheus Bracket

The first two teams in this new bracket fought valiantly, tying against each other almost evenly. Congrats both Team Altador and Roo Island – no grudges!! Team Faerieland almost smashed out a sweep, only letting Team Virtupets gain one win on Day 13 in Yooyuball. Team Mystery Island saw almost an identical victory, only allowing Team Meridell to take home Shootout Showdown. 

Vaeolus Bracket

Krawk Island takes a tie against Team Maraqua, adding two wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown to todays pirate victories. However, Maraqua scored higher in SLSL and MSN, putting them overall on top. Team Darigan Citadel showed up at the arena this week ready to play, sweeping out Team Haunted Woods. Which team scares you the most now?! Team Tyrannia takes the last of the two sweeps in this bracket, with 7's all across the board against Team Kreludor. Maybe next round!

So many melons, but where's my watermelon?! Maybe tomorrow we'll see some luck..

*Sparkle* *Sparkle*

There seems to have been a heat wave here at the Colosseum for Altador Cup XI, because some teams were just unable to perform or make it at all on Saturday! Day 11 was one for the books, adding some more sweeps into this game. Good – the janitor needed some help! Although I'm sure he would prefer you'd do it with brooms, instead of other teams. But, I mean, everything helps! It was also a "bye day" so all games played on June 12th counted towards your own personal rank, and not your teams overall standing. Let's see how it turned out!

Alabriss Bracket

Team Krawk Island slayed Team Terror Mountain, taking the first of three sweeps in this bracket. The Alabriss bracket is surely turning out to be a bracket of sweeps – and on the last day of that rotation, no less! Team Brightvale continued to maintain their stronghold, sweeping Team Virtupets. Lastly is Team Mystery Island, who locked Team Haunted Woods out of the games.

Minitheus Bracket

A shocker is headed into the land of Altador, because Team Shenkuu takes a sweep while up against Team Kreludor. Say what?! Stepping up that game play! Team Faerieland throws down against Team Lost Desert, with our faeries only losing Yooyuball. Also throwing in shocker effort is Team Maraqua, who almost sweeps Team Altador – except in Yooyuball.

Vaeolus Bracket

The knights of Team Meridell have finally arrived, only losing Make Some Noise on Day 11 up against Team Darigan Citadel. Huzzah! Team Tyrannia also matches that almost sweep, giving up only MSN to Team Kiko Lake. Seems we're all mirroring each other here, bracket by bracket. Team Moltara only wins Yooyuball up against Roo Island, who bounces back with wins in the rest. My blumaroos!

Day 12 was a "bye day," meaning no results are needed to be revealed. However, we do have new brackets that are sparkling brighter than the Altadorian sun. Am I becoming a poet? Possibly. Here they are!

Alabriss Bracket: Brightvale, Kiko Lake, Shenkuu, Terror Mountain, Lost Desert, and Moltara.
Minitheus Bracket: Mystery Island, Faerieland, Meridell, Roo Island, Altador, and Virtupets.
Vaeolus Bracket: Tyrannia, Krawk Island, Maraqua, Darigan Citadel, Kreludor, and Haunted Woods.

Only time can tell how we'll be looking on Day 13. See you back on the field!!

Well, you couldn't be looking more tired if you tried! Are the Altador Cup XI Colosseum games getting to you already?! Time to find a steadier pace – maybe a stop-by break at the Kadoatery could help! Don't worry, we'll bring the kads to you. Day 10 is looking a little more like Day 1, seeing a decent amount of sweeps on this round. Time to find more motivation, teams!

Alabriss Bracket

This bracket is back at it again with the continuous sweeps, with Team Krawk Island taking the first one up against Team Terror Mountain. Sweep, there it is! Team Brightvale is the next winner in this bracket, taking Team Virtupets off the board in Day 10. And to round out this sweepin' bracket is Team Mystery Island, who dominates up against Team Haunted Woods by taking every game home. All the games are mine!!

Minitheus Bracket

This bracket put up more of an evenly matched fight, adding in some spice to the games. Team Altador takes every game except Make Some Noise up against Team Kreludor, sittin' pretty in their status as rising stars. Keep it going! Team Faerieland performs just as well, also only losing their grip on Make Some Noise against Team Shenkuu. In the exact same scenario is Team Lost Desert, who also loses only MSN to Team Maraqua, making me wonder if this was staged by all parties. We should start a screaming tournament for this bracket, and see who wins that. Winner takes all, anyone?

Vaeolus Bracket

Team Darigan Citadel came to play on Day 10, sweeping out Team Moltara. Someone's on fire, but it's not the team you'd think! Team Tyrannia has similar results up against Team Meridell, sweeping the knights right under the rug. Team Kiko Lake almost manages a sweep, however Team Roo Island wasn't about to lose quietly – the blumaroos were able to snatch one win in Slushie Slinger. This is a strategy called know your competitions weaknesses!

It's faded for even more secrecy!!

Wondering who to pick for the next round of TNT's Staff Tournament? You can view all of the players scores from this past round to help guide your choices on our TNT Staff Tournament AC XI page. Also a reminder that the Insiders Colosseum Club Pass is available for purchase for 700 NC at the NC Mall. See you all tomorrow!

The beaches in Altador are lookin' mighty fine on Day 9 here at the Colosseum, and it just might be time to take a break and dip your feet in! Wait – that would require pausing your games.. maybe not.. Well, at the very least, you can view some sand. Would that make things better? Your team is counting on you to take home the cup for Altador Cup XI! Now let's get to those results.

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: When you send a Slushie Slinger score today, all points will count as extra for your team. Get to playing!!

Alabriss Bracket

Team Krawk Island can't keep their hands to themselves, almost sweeping Team Virtupets off the board on Day 9. Surprisingly, they lost Yooyuball 5-6 to the floating station. Stop sweeping the decks and shoot some goals! Team Brightvale makes a hard comeback, sweeping Team Mystery Island off the board. That must've hurt. Team Terror Mountain fares better today by far better odds, only losing Make Some Noise to Team Haunted Woods. Where did those zombies go though..?

Minitheus Bracket

Unfortunately for Team Faerieland this day wasn't quite theirs, only gaining one win in Shootout Showdown up against Team Kreludor. Maybe Fyora was giving a speech, or something.. Team Altador continues to dominate in this bracket, taking three wins to Team Lost Deserts one in Yooyuball. Team Maraqua just can't seem to find the motivation to win anymore, only taking one Make Some Noise win up against Team Shenkuu. Did your team get lost on the way to the Colosseum?!

Vaeolus Bracket

Team Darigan Citadel takes a tie today, besting Team Meridell in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. Dreaded side games! Day 9 is proving to bring out the best in Team Roo Island, who wins everything but Yooyuball up against Team Moltara. That's more like the blumaroos I know! Team Tyrannia also continues on their path towards victory, taking three wins against Team Kiko Lake's one in Slushie Slinger.

Take the beach with you to the Colosseum!

With Day 9 in the wraps, we can't wait to report on tomorrow. Check back for even more coverage of Altador Cup XI! Also remember to resubmit – or change! – your choices for TNT's Staff Tournament as well as collect your winnings from round 1.

Unfortunately due to technical difficulties, Altador Cup XI Day 8 news was unable to be posted yesterday. With that in mind, here's our coverage for the games a lil' late – featuring robots!

Alabriss Bracket

Taking a step down from all out domination is Team Brightvale, who let their victory slip a little up against Team Krawk Island with a tie. However, both teams are massive competitors, so an all out sweep on either side would've been ruthless – and an impressive feat. Team Mystery Island is shaking the board, taking three wins up against Team Terror Mountains' one in Shootout Showdown. Coming back up from their graves is Team Haunted Woods, who zombied their way to three wins against Team Virtupets. Only Yooyuball could not be snatched by HW!

Minitheus Bracket

Team Altador continues their valiant fight towards the top, only losing Make Some Noise up against Team Maraqua. Huzzah! Seemingly this team isn't winning only from home court advantage anymore – there's the heart and soul in these games! Team Faerieland only wins Shootout Showdown up against Team Shenkuu in a surprising slip of power. Welp, anything can, and did, happen on Day 8! Team Kreludor takes Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise up against Team Lost Desert, tying this day with a resounding handshake. Perfect.

Vaeolus Bracket

Team Kiko Lake successfully lands three wins on the board in everything but Yooyuball up against Team Darigan Citadel. In a victorious turn of events, Team Meridell snatches the only sweep on Day 8 up against Team Moltara – and here we thought we were in for a long season of sweeps! Maybe that Altador sun is getting to some teams.. Only a slight error for Team Tyrannia to wrap up this bracket, losing one game up against Team Roo Island in Slushie Slinger. Maybe I should go get myself one as well..

You can't control these robots..

Maybe it's time for this AC reporter to invest in a robot handling book – or acquire better Internet while on vacation. Let's see some more sweeps!!

We've fixed yet more Altador Cup Lookups for you guys. This lookup is now fixed for all altador cup teams. Stay tuned for more fixed AC graphics.
Krawk Island Lookup


Posted by coalbox on 8th of June 2016 at 05:47 PM NST
After a wonderful bye day is over, new brackets were released as well as Day 7 of competition. With new rules to hopefully equal out the competition, shakeups are sure to be aplenty in these new brackets! Let's see what these two days had in store for us down at the Altador Cup XI Colosseum.

Here's what our shiny new Round 2 brackets look like:

Alabriss Bracket: Brightvale, Krawk Island, Mystery Island, Terror Mountain, Haunted Woods, and Virtupets.
Minitheus Bracket: Altador, Shenkuu, Faerieland, Lost Desert, Kreludor, and Maraqua.
Vaeolus Bracket: Tyrannia, Kiko Lake, Meridell, Darigan Citadel, Moltara, and Roo Island.

And with new brackets released also comes our Day 7 results!

Alabriss Bracket

Team Krawk Island is paving their way towards an AC XI victory, staying within the top three and taking only one loss in Yooyuball up against Team Mystery Island. What a ship! Team Brightvale continues to stay on top of the games, sweeping out Team Haunted Woods on the first day of these new brackets. Where's the janitor with my broom?! Team Terror Mountain makes a move towards comeback central, only losing Yooyuball up against Team Virtupets.

Minitheus Bracket

Never underestimate Team Lost Desert, who on Day 7 sweeps out Team Kreludor. Must've been visiting Coltzan's Shrine for help! Team Faerieland also steps up their massive game, knocking Team Maraqua off todays board completely. Time to hit the gym and get back into the game, Maraqua! Team Altador also continues to be a force to reckon with, sweeping out Team Shenkuu and maintaining the highest scores in their bracket.

Vaeolus Bracket

Finally feeling more at home is Team Darigan Citadel, who decided losing just wasn't for them except when it comes to Slushie Slinger. DC only lost that one game up against Team Roo Island, bringing them back into this game. Team Meridell takes Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown up against Team Kiko Lake, settling down for a tie. Halfing it! Rounding out Day 7 is Team Tyrannia, who completely obliterates Team Moltara. Now we know who not to mess with!

With the announcement of cheaters finally being prosecuted in this years Altador Cup, TNT also had a follow-up message on the Colosseum homepage, accurately titled "Uncertain Times Ahead" –

The biggest piece of news from the Altador Cup this year comes not from the participating teams but the governing committee! In an unprecedented move, the committee has warned public of an outbreak during the tournament and quarantined players for exhibiting symptoms of 'multiple account disorder' and 'magically enhanced physiology'. Several teams are expected to be affected by this development. Meanwhile, Brightvale seems to be in top form this year, winning all matches against powerhouse Kreludor and finishing at the top of the Vaeolus Bracket. Clearly this tournament will be anything but predictable!

We'll see where this years games go, however at the very least it shall be more interesting than years past! With the playing field more even, there are even higher stakes, and easier positions to fall out of. Get to playing!!

The results are in for Week 1 of the SunnyNeo's AC XI Staff Tournament.  There must be something in the name 'heroes' that gets the team playing, as Team Home Town Heroes takes 1st place this week.  They actually placed 1st in all side games, and only gave away Yooyuball to all other teams, coming in 5th on the main event.  Can they prove they have what it takes to play Yooyuball, too?  Second place is taken by Team: The Best.  The Best managed to place 2nd in YooyuBall and Slushie Slinger.  They took 3rd in Shootout Showdown, and 4th in Make Some Noise.  Though they came in strongly second, can they prove they can take a first place in a game, or even a whole week?  It appears our two spookier themed teams are rivaling and fighting for who is 3rd and 4th.  Team Haunted Path and Team Mad Scientists both averaged at a 3rd place.  To break it down, Haunted Path took  2nd in Shootout Showdown, 3rd in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, and 4th in Slushie Slinger.  Mad Scientists placed 2nd in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger, 3rd in Shootout Showdown, and 4th in Make Some Noise.  Which one of these teams will take down the other in this coming week?  Pulling in at the end of the line is Team Aurora.  They managed a 3rd place win at Slushie Slinger, and 4th in Yooyuball but placed 5th in the two games Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown which brought their average place to the bottom of the lineup.  Can Team Aurora prove they aren't meant for last place?

Which team are you rooting for??

Just another note to be sure to enter our Altador Cup XI Customisation Spotlight.  We're excited to see new combinations with all the latest items that have come to Neopia.  We want to see how your Neopets' show their spirit for the team they are supporting.  Submit your pet today!!  Two winners a team NP Only and NC Included.  Paint Brush clothing okay in either category.

Two entries winners from last year.  Faerieland's is NP Only, Lost Desert's is NC Included.

Hi, I'm Christa.  I've been around for about a year now behind the scenes doing things such as reviewing guides before release, and just recently started updating the Gourmet Foods pricing!  I am excited to also be bringing back Altador Cup interviews.  I interviewed one player on each of the 18 teams, so check out what your team (or your enemy's team) had to say!  

Only one team refused repeated requests for an interview...

With round one of the Altador Cup XI games coming to a close, TNT released a few new rules regarding this years hierarchy/final brackets on The Official Neopets Team Message Board. Alongside this was a message regarding certain cheaters within the games, and their plans to remove them fully from gameplay:

The Altador Cup Rules Committee has been keeping a careful eye on player performance this year, and it has come to their attention that a disease has been spreading among some participants. Symptoms include multiple personality disorder and temporary feeling of supernatural or magical performance in the games. In order to stop the spread of this plague, we have quarantined the affected players (and their scores), which have initially caused a dramatic upheaval to some overall team scores. We do expect these to stabilize as we move forward and remove quarantined players from the tournament. We will also continue to monitor other teams closely to make sure that all others stay healthy and unaffected by this plague. No other changes have been made to how the results are tallied, so uninfected players can and should keep playing normally for their teams.

In other news, now that round 1 has come to a close, we are excited to announce a new ending to this year's Cup. Round 5, instead of being another round of regular gameplay, will be a Finals Bracket! The top 6 teams will be placed into one bracket to battle it out for the top spot, teams ranked 7-12 in the next bracket, and 13-18 in the final bracket. The stakes are higher than ever to make sure your team performs well throughout the next few rounds. Each bracket will be worth different amounts, so winning the top bracket will earn more bracket points than the top spot in the second bracket, which will earn more than the last.

Game on, Neopians! This is shaping up to be one of the most dramatic Altador Cups yet!

Now get back to playing!!

We'll see brand new brackets tomorrow on Day 7, and hopefully a more even playing field. Don't forget that today is also THE LAST DAY to sign up for your favorite team at the Colosseum. Also be sure to check out our Altador XI Coverage page for all the interesting details on this years teams. Keep playing your hardest, and we'll see you out on the field!!

It's Day 5 here at the Colosseum, and Altador Cup XI is exploding with.. slushies? Yes, slushies! You better get one before they all end up on the floor. *yarr* Remember that with brand new shiny brackets coming our way on Day 7, that makes today a "bye day"! This means your minimum scores will not effect your teams standing – only your rank! And yes, you can rank up on these days. Have fun, and drink (eat?) some slush!

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: When you send a Make Some Noise score today, all points will count as extra for.. something. Since we are in a bye day, it will not count towards your team. We are rumoring that this may be for more prize points at the end, however this is unconfirmed!

This bracket was full of switchups, allowing Team Darigan Citadel to take everything but Yooyuball up against Team Virtupets. Comeback central! Team Lost Desert also came back today with three wins, allowing Team Shenkuu to only take Slushie Slinger. Keep slinging those slushies Shenkuu! Team Mystery Island follows a sweep with only one win in Yooyuball up against Team Tyrannia, breaking that glorious streak on Day 5.

Team Krawk Island kicks back into full gear after a brutal loss yesterday, sweeping Team Moltara completely. Pirates came to plunder! Team Kiko Lake continues on the path to victory, almost sweeping Team Altador with three wins to their one in Shootout Showdown. Not everyone gets to keep sweeping! Team Faerieland smashes out Team Haunted Woods, taking the second sweep for the day. That's more like my type of game playing faeries!

Kicking their team into better shape is Team Terror Mountain, who steals another two wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown up against Team Roo Island. Tied!! At least at the end of this day for these teams they can shake hands – others are not so lucky! Team Kreludor completely vanishes from the Altador Cup on Day 5, with the worst scores on the board up against the best from Team Brightvale, ending in a sweep. Where's that Kreludor spirit at?! Team Maraqua fares slightly better up against Team Meridell, however their efforts still resulted in a blank board as well.

This was meant to be left in December...

That's all for today's coverage – check back tomorrow for more. Don't forget that today is the LAST DAY to sign up for an Altador Cup team!! It's best to not miss out on this year's games, especially with exciting new updates regarding the finals.
A new round of skirmish is about to start. Visit the Battleground of the Obelisk until the end of Wednesday to choose your faction. Competing in this round will be the Brute Squad, The Sway and the Thieves Guild.

For more information take a look at our Skirmish Battles guide.

Today is the last day that the Altador Cup sign-ups are open. If haven't joined a team yet but want to participate in this year's cup, head on over to the Colosseum and take your pick.

Still unsure what team to join? Try out our Altador Cup Team Quiz to help you decide!



It's that time of the year where we get to choose which TNT staff member is making the cut for this years TNT Staff Tournament. To see what staff members are available for choosing this year and to keep track of rounds, check out our updated TNT Staff Tournament page!

Looks like they're at it again! Two opposing towns, Brightvale and Meridell, are striving for victory for first place in the ACXI! We've added two new userlookups for you! Draw those bridges and support your team!
Conquer the Cup!

It's Day 4 here at the Colosseum, and Altador Cup XI is officially underway. There's some shocking new results, especially within the Minitheus bracket, going down in Altador today. Hopefully those jelly chias aren't interfering with anyone's game time.. Let's see where we're all at!

Team Tyrannia continues on their sweep-brigade, adding a fourth to their record against Team Darigan Citadel. Along for the brutal ride is Team Shenkuu, who was sweeped by Team Virtupets. Redemption from yesterday! Rounding out this bracket is Team Mystery Island, who probably influenced the tombola man to sit on their sidelines again this year, sweeping out Team Lost Desert.

There's a plot twist going on in the Minitheus bracket, with Team Kiko Lake stealing first place from Team Krawk Island after winning Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, and Make Some Noise. Dun dun dun! The pirates only managed to take home Shootout Showdown on Day 4, but there's always tomorrow! Team Altador knocks down Team Faerieland, stealing their entire board. Home team advantage I tell ya! Team Moltara grabs one win in Yooyuball, handing the rest over to Team Haunted Woods who finally manages to get their name on the board. Today's the day for HW!

After a devastating one-win round on Day 3, Team Maraqua gets back into their original rhythm of sweeping - Team Roo Island just happened to be in the crossfire. Whoops! Team Terror Mountain won their first game, taking Slushie Slinger against Team Kreludor 5 to 4. Almost beat twice over in this bracket was unfortunately Team Meridell, who just couldn't keep up with Team Brightvale.

What do you mean there's no bacon?!!

Check back tomorrow for our continued Altador Cup XI coverage. If you haven't already, feel free to Model for us any Insider Experience items you've received so far!!

Ahh, don't you just love the smell of bouncing yellow chias, dropped slushies, and injured yooyus? No? Well, what are you dropping things for then?! Get back to practicing - er, playing! Oh, right, you came here for results. Well, here they are. Day 3 at the Colosseum for Altador Cup XI comes with a few shockers, and some steady teams kicking yooyus. Maybe that's how they keep getting injured!

Alabriss Bracket

Team Darigan Citadel takes a step back today, with Team Shenkuu shining through with three wins in everything but Yooyuball. Team Tyrannia storms through with another sweep, taking out Team Lost Desert this time. They just couldn't hang with the chombys! Team Virtupets only scores on Day 3 with Make Some Noise, letting Team Mystery Island steal Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, and Shootout Showdown.

Minitheus Bracket

Team Krawk Island victoriously takes their second sweep of this season, this time against Team Haunted Woods. Who upset those pirates?! Oh wait, everyone upsets them. Team Faerieland moves up in their bracket, sweeping out Team Kiko Lake. Faerie whoosh! Team Moltara manages to snag Yooyuball up against Team Altador, however fails to compete in any other game.

Vaeolus Bracket

Not bouncing so high today is Team Roo Island, who unfortunately lost their board to Team Kreludor. Sweepity sweepin'! In a surprising turn of events, Team Brightvale almost sweeps Team Maraqua, only losing Shootout Showdown to their aquatic competitors. Rounding out our day comes Team Meridell, who showed up to play against Team Terror Mountain by sweeping them off their feet.

Day 4 is sure to be here sooner rather than later, so make sure you keep playing to keep your rank up and support your favorite team!

You'll never guess my next grand scheme..
The Altador Colosseum is burning up already with yooyus being thrown across the field on Day 2, with more sweeps coming your way. Surprisingly nice weather here!! Maybe the janitor has some influence on that. Remember that the Staff Tournament is officially underway, so be sure to place your votes for this week!! Now let's see some results. *yarr*

When you send a Yooyuball score today, all points will count as extra for your team. Get to playing!!

Alabriss Bracket

A surprise victory/almost sweep comes from Team Darigan Citadel, who gains three wins against Team Terror Mountain's one yooyuball victory. What a comeback from yesterday! Team Tyrannia smashes out yet another sweep on Day 2, continuing their legacy against Team Shenkuu. Time to pick up the pieces and keep fighting! Team Virtupets is down for the count so far, losing a complete sweep to Team Lost Desert.

Minitheus Bracket

Team Haunted Woods continues to lack in performance so far, allowing Team Altador to sweep them. Not so quick to be knocked off the board was Team Faerieland, who ended up taking a win in Slushie Slinger against Team Krawk Island. Flying slushies all around! Team Kiko Lake continues their show of strength, taking out Team Moltara in a very close round.

Vaeolus Bracket

Even with Team Maraqua dominating the field, the Colosseum still shines brightly. Their opponents Team Kreludor, however, fought valiantly and yet were still sweeped. Yowza. Maybe umbrellas were necessary on such a bright and sunny day? Dominating over Team Meridell was Team Roo Island, who bounces towards a happy victory on Day 2. Rounding out these matchups is Team Brightvale's massive sweep against Team Terror Mountain, who couldn't even touch their scores so far.

Check back tomorrow for even more updates on this year's Altador Cup XI matchups! Now get some goOOALLS. *meep*

Don't make me bring the Janitor in here!!

Welcome to our Day 1 results for Altador Cup XI, with almost a full board of sweeps coming right at you. What, no one woke you up this morning? Get to playing!! If you haven't already done so, remember to sign up for your favorite team at the Colosseum before sign-ups expire. Now let's see some sweeps!

Alabriss Bracket

The only team in this bracket who didn't quite let a sweep by them was Team Mystery Island, who was able to take away one win in Yooyuball up against Team Shenkuu. Over in the desert, Team Lost Desert swept away Team Darigan Citadel in an unpleasant suprise. Rounding out this bracket is Team Tyrannia, who trampled Team Virtupets out in Altador yesterday.

Minitheus Bracket

Roaring across the seas comes a dominating victory by Team Krawk Island, who knocked Team Altador completely off the board on Day 1. Keep on sailing! Team Kiko Lake also dominates in this bracket, taking every victory against Team Haunted Woods. Another fighter in this bracket was Team Moltara, who barely scrapes by with one win in Yooyuball against Team Faerieland, who wins the rest.

Vaeolus Bracket

Winding down the last of today's results is the Vaeolus bracket, which resulted in a 100% chance of sweeping. Team Brightvale took down Team Roo Island, making day 1 not so bright for the blumaroos anymore. Team Kreludor schooled Team Meridell, almost doubling half their scores in two games. To round out this bracket is Team Maraqua, who conquered the wild card that is Team Terror Mountain.

Hopefully tomorrow we see some teams fight back, and go for the gold! Let's see more victories, and less sweeps. Now get to playing, AND GOODNIGHT!!

Wait... why am I here?
I'm the wrong coconut...
Well, goodnight. :)

Just as the Sun begins to set over the Colossem the last day before the Altador Cup XI kicks off, an uneasy feeling begins to settle.  A group of SunnyNeo Staffers enter in lab coats as they begin to cackle.  It is easy to see they are all mad - Team Mad Scientists has arrived.  Two-time Team Super Heroes Champ, Mikey leads the team into the arena sporting Lost Desert colors.  Mikey is our Game Guide Writer.  Mikey has done well previous AC's, and is a two time Staff Tournament Champion.  He's hoping to be three for three.  Jay follows closely behind clad in Terror Mountain colors.  Jay is a Customisation team member and updates our Rainbow Pool.  Jay and Mikey were together last year on Team Super Heroes and hope with the two of them, this team will prove to also be untouchable.  Jay was also in our AC IX Staff Tournament.  Aly is a newer artist here at SunnyNeo - and the only newer member on this team.  Aly is hoping to fit right in with our long-time staff members and not fall behind.  David is our Programmer and overloaded with us throwing questions at him on how to fix this and that.  Although he's been a SunnyNeo Staffer for quite some time, he's new to the Staff Tournament.  He's hoping we don't keep him distracted with projects and can be this teams mystery.  Robyn is also an Artist who's been around for quite some time.  Although, like David, is new to the Staff Tournament.  She sports Meridell attire and hopes to score the first points for both her teams. 


New Altador Cup Banners and Glitters have been made! Be sure to check them out and add them to your Userlookup, Petpages, etc. to show support for your team.

As the Altador Cup quickly approaches and everyone has either a slushie or a megaphone in hand, clad in their team gear, another Staff team has arrived for the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament!  You can't help but feel the comfort and familiarity in their name:  Team Home Town Heroes!  Front-runner for the team is Callie our AC Daily Reporter.  She's hoping being on top of the AC she'll be able to find teams strengths and weaknesses and use that to help her team here and for Krawk Island.  Callie has also helped us out with graphics and is returning from Staff Tournament AC IX.  Jocinto is our resident Customisation Team member.  He does a lot by getting items into our database and maintaining it.  He's clad in Lost Desert apparel.  Jocinto has shown dedication here at SunnyNeo, and hopes to apply that same dedication to racking up scores for his teams.  Jocinto was in previous Staff Tournaments: AC V, VI and X.  Joyables charges in as one of our newer staff members as a General Page Maintenance.  She's still settling to SunnyNeo and Haunted Woods, but hopes that with the unknown she can score points to help her teams.  Ziggy returns once again from previous Staff Tournaments AC IX and AC X   She's once again clad in Roo Island attire.  Ziggy does quite a lot for us around SunnyNeo including Packrat and other Item lists, Customisation, and basically anything that doesn't require graphics or HTML.  She is a huge asset to SunnyNeo and hopes to be one for her team.  Bloom too enters in Roo Island attire, but is a beginner to the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament.  Bloom is another General Page Maintenance around here at SunnyNeo and hopes to help us get some pages updated.  Without other Staffers familiar with her play, she hopes to use that as her strength.


We've updated a few more pages for you as well.  The Tournament Rules page has the lastest rules placed.  You can view the Sign-Up Bonuses for signing up for the Altador Cup multiple years.  Customisation Overview has been added for this year, but will have more additions as the AC unfolds.  We will update previous years for this page after the AC ends.

Our Customisation Spotlight is NOW OPEN!!  Please read over the rules carefully.  Once again we will do two categories for each team:  NP Only and NC Included (PB clothes acceptable in either category).  The last day you can enter your pet is June 26th, and winners announced on July 1st.

As everyone continues to fill the Colosseum and the roar of the crowd continues to climb, suddenly balloons fall from a blimp up above.  The center of the field where Yooyuballs usually emerge, opens and begins to rise.  The crowd no matter who's team they support can't help but feel the awesomeness that is the latest team to arrive:  Team: The Best is clearly here.  Wolf is clad in Brightvale colors and does many updates for SunnyNeo such as Daily Puzzle and Crossword as well as event guides.  He returns now for his third year in the Staff Tournament, previously in AC IX and AC X.  He's been around for quite some time and hopes to rack up numbers for his team in the first hours of the day.  Christa is our resident Guide Reviewer and Gourmet Food List updater and returns for her second year at the Staff Tournament.  She's beginning to do more and more as she settles in to staff.  She is clad in Kiko Lake attire.  Christa is hoping to carry Kiko Lake's strength from last year and apply it to her scores for Team: The Best.  Jado too returns for a second year for the Staff Tournament and once again with Shenkuu.  Jado is a great artist for us here at SunnyNeo.  Jado hope to translate creativity in art to creativity in play style to overtake the other teams.  Faith is an amazing graphics maker here at SunnyNeo and returns for her second year in the Staff Tournament - previously in AC IX.  Faith is hoping to use her free time this summer to really pack down some scores.  Sayegh is another new staffer joining us as our Graphics Coder Overseer and supporting Krawk Island.  Sayegh is working hard at getting our layouts fixed with the recent changes.  Sayegh is hoping to use that same dedication on the field.


We have reviewed our AC pages and have noticed a few out of date and we are trying very hard to get everything ready and updated.  So stay tuned for pages that we've adjusted.  So far we've updated the Fan Freebies and Abbreviations & Common Terms.  Many more updates to come in the last few moments before this years AC XI starts.

A breeze rushes into the Colosseum and blows out all torches.  An eerie, uneasy feeling fills the stadium as a hush falls upon the spectators.  Suddenly from the depths of quiet, a menacing cackle fills the air!  Five SunnyNeo staffers come charging forth haunting the arena.  It is no question that Team Haunted Path has most definitely arrived for this years SunnyNeo Staff Tournament.  Long time returning player Corine is leading the pack and has been helpful all around SunnyNeo.  With her many years at the Staff Tournaments AC V, VI, IX, and X, Corine is hoping to use her knowledge to lead the charge for her team.  She's laying it down and going for all star for her team Meridell.  Lacee returns this AC still pulling for Haunted Woods - fitting so well on Team Haunted Path.  She is part of our Project Crew.  Lacee is full of confidence from her AC X team, Team Super Heroes, win last year and hopes to have a no-losing streak.  Reagan only joined SunnyNeo a few months ago as our MIA Updater, but was eager to join the Staff Tournament.  He's confident in his game-play and has done well so far to come up with ideas for the team.  Its a wonder how his team Maraqua will fair as well as his Team Haunted Path.  Kyra is also a newcomer who is supporting Maraqua.  Kyra is an amazing graphics artist who's been busy working on some things to add to the AC graphics - watch out for those soon.  She cannot wait to score the first point for her team!  Rhyz is also a long time returning player to the Staff Tournament, being in previous years AC V, VI, and X.  He has done some item page work such as stamps in the past for us at SunnyNeo.  He hasn't chosen a team yet, but hopes to bring his A-game whatever path he choses.

The sky above the stadium fills with wondrous colors that dance among the stars.  Purples, Blue and Aqua amaze as they fill the crowd with wonder and delight.  It can only mean one thing:  Team Aurora has arrived!  The SunnyNeo Staff Tournament has its first team.  With SunnyNeo Staff Legends and Newcomers alike, Team Aurora is made up of five competitors.  Sosu is a graphics maker who recently returned to SunnyNeo after some time away.  He's never participated in the SN Staff Tournament, but promises to bring in some great scores for his team Moltara and Aurora alike.  Sitka is SunnyNeo's recently added Petpet Expert.  She's clearly sporting Maraquan attire and is hoping to come out strong on her first year on the SN Staff Tournament.  Vicki our long-time Battledome Expert too has never joined the SN Staff Tournament, but is eager to show her worth as well as pulling for her Neopets' team Shenkuu.  Franc is a newcomer to SunnyNeo and is our Concept Coordinator.  Franc is the second Maraqua supporter of Team Aurora and is hoping to be the push Team Aurora needs to take this SN Staff Tournament!  Ashleigh is SunnyNeo's most recent staff member - joining us today as a Customisation Preview Searcher.  Upon joining, she was very eager to be a last minute entry being the second Shenkuu supporter on this team.  She hopes to be Team Aurora's secret weapon.

The Colosseum fills with Noise,
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.
-SunnyNeo News 9th of June, 2014 & 9th of May 2015

As the Colosseum begins to fill, and the spectators are all adorned in their favorite teams' attire, the roar from the crowd is powerful.  Enter two-time Team Super Heroes All-Star Jujipup - now a retired player of the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament.  Now branded as the SunnyNeo Staff Tournament's Scorekeeper.

"This year we will have five teams of at least four players.  The staff members who've signed up have been devided into teams and are working on their uniforms.  We are super excited for this years competition.  Best of luck to all teams this ALTADOR CUP!"
