  1. I was just wondering when the next cup starts?
  2. Help! I cleared my browsing history and now cannot access my telescope to find the Gatherer constellation. The telescope screen will not even appear when I go to the observatory. How do I fix this?
  3. I'm having so much trouble with the Spellbook portion of the Altador Plot. I've tried using the Daily Neopets spell book finder, and a ton of others and I've gotten different coordinates so many times. TDN said that my coordinates were 9, 84, another site said they were 9, 12 and another said that they were 8, 13. I've searched all of these rooms 10 times over and I still can't find it. My Sleeper coordinates are: (-40, 44) (0,14) (40, -16) (80, -16) (120, 14) (160, 44) If anyone can help me figure this out I will be completely indebted to you. Please Help!
  4. I've gone through the forums and read all the other topics about this problem and I tried all the suggestions and still nothing helped. I've gone through the books more than 3 times. I even went back a couple of steps and still nothing. I'm wondering if it's still possible to complete the plot or if anyone has any ideas that could help. I've used the walkthrough from this site and followed it step by step. My sleeper coordinates are (-207, 272) (-167, 242) (-127, 212) (-87, 212) (-42, 242) (-7, 272) I used the altador plot spellbook finder that was linked in the walkthrough and I got 16, 12 I have checked and rechecked to make sure I had the right link. I even switched the coordinates to 12, 16 and still nothing. Any help, tips, advice would be really helpful.
  5. [The studio. Midtime and Matt are present.] Greetings, one, and greetings, all! It's been an excellent one day (and no more than that) on the pitch, and I and Matt are very glad to tell you all about the results which we have both been so diligent in collecting. I, for example, most certainly did not spend the entirety of yesterday finalising a detailed dissertation on Matt's use of witchcraft to predict future Cup match-ups and their results, only to discover at the last moment that he was in fact employing the far more obscure art of statistical analysis. Let us proceed promptly to the Alabriss results. The Magmas unfortunately could not weather the Lost Desert heat, falling to another fateful sweep in a brutal game of somewhat backwards wordplay. Although commentators expected no less from the Mummies, captain Leera Heggle was heard to call it a "doozie of a match", nodding in a complimentary fashion to the Moltara team - in context, I presume that he meant they were a hardy opponent. The term 'doozie' probably alludes to a Lost Desert proverb about a flower that survives against the elements. [An intern hands Midtime a sheet of paper.] Ah, it appears my supervisor had this delivered just in time to inform me that I am dead wrong. I am informed that 'doozie' is not regionally specific, and is in fact a widespread slang term which I have heard, and in fact used, several times within the past hour. I have somehow managed to forget this, a probable occurrence which my supervisor foresaw just in time to send this despatch. My supervisor hopes that they are not too late to prevent me from embarrassing myself on live television. How thoughtful! My supervisor would also like me to get back on topic. How did - um, never mind. In a much friendlier re-enactment of an ancient rivalry, Meridell soundly trumped the Minions in the second sweep of a day that would turn out to have many more. The Knights have done well for themselves throughout the Cup, even taking the occasional win from the powerhouses of the season; it seems they are aiming to end their part in this year's games in a most memorable fashion. The Zombies, meanwhile, had trouble recreating their previous success against Kiko Lake, who are still first in the running to take home the Cup. Locked into the same bracket as the Kikos, the Mummies, and the Knights, Team Haunted Woods may have a difficult time gathering themselves for a last hurrah before the end of the season. Meanwhile - in the Minitheus Bracket, Maraqua scored a definite win against their symbolic nemeses from Krawk Island, taking all but one of the events. The Pirates kept themselves from a sweep with a well-staffed slushie service and a serendipitous flavour, which is likely to outlast this year's Cup and be repackaged as something with a higher price tag, advertisements for which will be briefly seen on this channel as the product enjoys a brief burst of popularity before fading into disuse, protected from public repossession by a patent meaninglessly renewed for centuries by a company which, if it were a living creature, would be seen to treat everything around it with envy and fear. If Maraqua make a good push, they may yet make it into the single-digit rankings. What an exciting two days it will be for them! Team Virtupets made a series of remarkable saves against the Ninjas, earning their victory ultimately by virtue of penalty shots. The results met great cheering from their half of the stadium, while Shenkuu fans had victory in only one category - refreshments - to celebrate. Team Tyrannia broke Mystery Island's winning streak to continue their own, sweeping the Natives entirely off the field. Unlike yesterday, their cheering teams came through in ensuring their victory - good news for the Fossils, who will need every last point they can score to hold on to the podium. It seems that the spirit of the blue Techo is with them today. That covers the Minitheus bracket! How fortunate that I was able to avoid any irrelevant tangents while reporting. Matt will now provide the Vaeolus results. [The feed shifts to Matt. Midtime is still in-frame, but under subtle directions from a cameraperson, scoots gingerly away to the right.] Thanks Midtime! Was I glad to see you! I thought you and Brooke ditched me to go out and have fun...I mean...I was worried about you both! Uhhh anyways, let's get straight into the results from the Vaeolus Bracket. The Suns were victorious in today's match between the two underdogs. Although the Faeries came close in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, the Suns' Yooyu-slinging skills proved to be too much for the Faeries to handle. Altador walks away with their second sweep of the tournament, and a well deserved one if I may add. Salayne Ritad, Altador's goalkeeper defended the goal down to the last second, preventing the Faeries' offense from scoring crucial points needed to win the game. On the other hand, forwards Foltaggio and Winberto Seliz broke through the Faeries' defense and scored excellent goals, propelling Altador to win their match. The Suns are up against Kreludor in today's match, but if they can continue playing at this level, they stand a fighting chance! The Chillers were able to quell doubts about their side games skills as Brightvale was swept by the Chillers in today's match. In addition to averaging 7's in the side games, the Chillers went on to take Yooyuball as well, completing the sweep. This marks the third straight sweep for the Wizards. With only two days of gameplay left remaining in this tournament, the Wizards will need to regroup and figure out a way to finish the tournament on a high note. Their match against Faerieland today might just be the opportunity they're looking for. For the last matchup of the Vaeolus Bracket, the Rooligans were able to make a successful push to prevent a sweep today against the Moons. Kreludor wasn't able to finish the job today as they allowed the sweep to fall right through their hands. It was a difficult match for the Rooligans, but in the end they were able to tie in Slushie Slinger which is not an easy feat to accomplish when you're up against a podium contender. The Moons were able to take the rest of the games as expected, but my guess is that Roo Island will be celebrating tonight! Now let's move on. For today's matches to watch, upper tiered teams Lost Desert and Meridell will be facing off against each other today! This match will definitely be a close one, and the winner will likely be whoever is able to take Yooyuball. Both teams are predicted to win two games apiece, therefore, the games that each team wins are vital in determining the winner. Maraqua and Shenkuu will also be going against each other today. The Ninjas might be able to pull off a draw in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger which would end their losing streak. Will the Ninjas be able to pull off this daunting task? The Robots and Natives will be battling it out on the field today in what is predicted to be a very close match. If either the Robots or the Natives are able to take Yooyuball or Slushie Slinger, the outcome of the match will likely change. There's only two days left until the winner of the Altador Cup is announced! Stay tuned as we bring you the latest coverage. This is Matt signing off.

  6. It's that time again, people! So, sit on down and get settled, grab some popcorn and your 4D goggles, and get ready for the AC X report! This is Brooke, reporting from The Daily Neopets' studio. The whole team is back and ready to give you the facts. Onward, to the Alabracket! Faerieland started us off today with an impressive (for them) showing against the Lost Desert. The Mummies have stood tall against all but the strongest, top-tier teams this year, and they showed their prowess in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. But when it came to the Yooyuball field, the Faeries gave them a run for their money, forcing a draw. Spurred by this encouraging result, the Faeries went on to snatch a surprising win in the slushie tents! This is their first win and best overall day of the bracket so far. Next up, the Chillers and the Pirates clashed on the field. The brooms were back, if in smaller number, as Terror Mountain quite thoroughly swept Krawk Island with reckless abandon! The Chillers have been rather quiet this year, but they've also kind of been kicking butt, and currently sit in fifth place, tantalizingly close to a coveted podium spot. The Pirates, meanwhile, are tied with the Darigan Citadel in eighth, which is a really weird word to see in print. Closing out the Alabriss bracket was the match between Mystery Island and Meridell. The fans of the Knights ran roughshod over those of the Natives, winning Make Some Noise by a landslide. They took Slushie Slinger as well, but were less fortunate in the remaining two events, where the Natives pulled off a tie in each. Annnd that's it for the Alabriss bracket! I'll turn things over to Midtime for the Minitheus. How are things with you, Midtime? [Midtime smiles politely, then holds the smile rigid for a few seconds, apparently panicking.] Um, yes! That is to say, perfectly sanguine. Quite lackadaisical. Ahem. Let us then wend our way into the scintillatingly discombobulated Minitheus parenthesis. The matches hereto have not been to floccinaucinihilipilificate at, and these are no different! They have been infernal - incinerating - highly diabatic! Oyez! The news to be anon delivered will have all the discombobulating impact of an iron stang or miraculously acierated newspaper roll! It will be more than copacetic, the antipode of defenestrable, positively individual! It will be as remarkable as the name of the famous hill Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaur- wait. Did I use 'discombobulate' twice? I think I did! Twice in three sentences, no less. Good grief. Expanding my vocabulary isn't as useful as I thought it would be. Recovering gracefully from their eclipse at the hands of Team Kreludor, the Suns controlled the Yooyuball field today to great effect, beating the Magmas twofold in the main event, and claiming the shootouts for themselves as well. Moltara's accomplishments were all in the grandstand: the turnout among their supporters was extraordinary, carrying them to victory in the cheering and slushie categories. The captains of the two teams, Remis and Beign, exchanged cordial greetings during the post-match formalities, a sharp contrast to the tension of the game itself. Although it would of course be intrusive to pry into their personal affairs without a professional hand involved, it is well-known that they are quite closely acquainted, having been seen with each other several evenings in the days leading up to the Cup; that they have a common interest in hair styling, which they engage in together at least every other month; that Beign has a rice husk stuck just behind his left canine, not visible to frontal photographs; and that both of them share a mysterious aversion to visible surveillance cameras, at least when they are - oh, I'm rambling! I'd better not do that; the last time it happened my supervisor picked up my bugging remote from my jacket pocket, dropped it on the floor, and ground it thoroughly to pieces with the point of their heel in a most unfortunate bout of absent-mindedness. I can't seem to get my hands on a replacement. On to the next matchup, then! The Zombies were faced with another rough match today: the Moons, as light on their feet as always, withheld no display of prowess against them, and try as they might, the Woods team stood little chance. Fans of the Moons have been far more than excited this year to see their favourites climbing back to the top - something which their extraordinary Make Some Noise score might well attest to - and if they continue with these sweeps, they may yet see an opportunity to close that three-point gap and claim first place from the powerhouse that is Kiko Lake. The Zombies, in the meantime, would be the last to resign themselves to the legendary Cup Curse. As captain Krell Vitor said to interviewers after today's match ended, "You're ignoring one fact: we have fought through this before. This time we will be faster." The Fossils, not to be outdone by the team that battled them to a perfect draw at the beginning of this round, put a neat stop to the Robots' promising Round Four record with yet another devastating sweep. This is a heavy blow for the Robots, who have been striving to climb out of the lower half of the rankings as the final week of the season approaches - but then, they are no strangers to heavy blows. Perhaps they will rebound tomorrow; perhaps their finishing place will be something to cheer about, after all. With the Minitheus bracket outcomes of the day thus tintinnabulated, or at least tabulated, it is about the proper time to put you through to Matt for the concluding set of results. Matt? [The feed switches to Matt, but only after about a quarter of a minute. He is already talking when it does.] -fter their rude wake up call in the match against Brightvale, the Kikos took no guff as they showed spectators that they are determined to win this year's Cup. The Kikos have dropped the playful attitude and unfortunately, the Rooligans were on the receiving end of this beatdown today. The Rooligans' push in Yooyuball was not enough today as the Kikos dominated all of the games with wide gaps. With only a few more days until the fourth round ends, the Kikos will be looking to solidify their position as the frontrunner to win the tournament. Brightvale produced results yet again in today's matchup against the Ninjas. Although the Ninjas gave their best effort, they couldn't prevent the Wizards from sweeping them. The Wizards have been doing well in the fourth bracket, stopping the Kikos' winning streak while also defeating the Ninjas and the Mermaids. It's a surprise to many that the Wizards are still ranked sixth place in the bracket despite accomplishing these amazing feats. Brightvale only has one more day before the bracket ends. Will they be able to make a push to rise in the rankings? Wrapping up the results of the Vaeolus Bracket today, the battle between sky and sea ended in an overwhelming victory for the Mermaids. Although the Minions fought valiantly, the Mermaids proved they had the superior yooyu-slinging skills and fan base in today's matchup taking victories in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The Minions were barely able to escape a sweep by drawing with the Mermaids in Slushie Slinger. Will the Mermaids be able to overtake the Minions in the bracket standings? Now let's move on to our interesting matches for the day. Darigan Citadel and Brightvale will be facing off against each other for the first time in this year's Cup. It is sure to be a close one as both teams are expected to take victories in two games apiece! The Wizards were able to end the Kikos' winning streak. Will they continue to surprise spectators? Matches between the underdogs of the tournament will be occurring in today's matches. Faerieland and Mystery Island as well as Haunted Woods and Moltara will all be fighting to rise from the bottom of the pack. Mystery Island and Moltara are predicted to win in their respective matchups, but will the unwavering spirit of the Faeries and the Zombies be enough to overcome these two teams? In our last matchup, the surprising upper tier teams of this tournament will be going head to head today as well. Both Lost Desert and Terror Mountain tied for thirteenth place in last year's Cup, and now they have a fighting chance to be on the podium. Although Terror Mountain is predicted to win the overall match, the Mummies will definitely put up a strong fight. That wraps up today's report! We'll see you all tomorrow for the final results of the fourth round! This is Matt, signing off.

  7. Suns Send Zombies Soaring

    It's time to buckle down, friends, as we head into the fourth round of the tenth Altador Cup! And by "time to buckle down" I mean "time to work your fingers to the bone or risk feeling vaguely guilty for not contributing more!" This is Brooke, reporting from The Daily Neopets' studio, and I'm feeling rejuvenated after our day of rest, and excited to bring you the results of the Alabriss bracket! Here's hoping you found the bye day as relaxing as I did. The fourth round of the cup got off to an exciting start as the Meridell Knights went up against the Lost Desert Mummies. The Knights haven't been having the most stellar year, but they managed to keep their heads above water and avoid being completely swept by a team that's swept all but the best. The Mummies' third place standing is still secure for the moment, as they held onto three of the four events of the day. But if they allow Meridell's Make Some Noise triumph to shake their confidence, they might just lose their grip on the podium. [There is suddenly a great kerfuffle as Brooke notices something in her notes, goes completely white in the face, and sprints from the room. An awkward silence descends for several minutes, punctuated only by the muffled sounds of a hurried argument from beyond the view of the camera. Eventually, the reporter strides back into the room, quite calm, and resumes her spot at the desk.] I have just realized that this is not the final round of the Cup. There is, in fact, a fifth round after this one. I've been mistakenly operating under the notion that this round was the last and I'd finally be able to rest my fingers. From writing reports. And... never mind. Let's get on with this. I need to go rearrange some plans. Islands Mystery and Krawk went head-to-head today, the Pirates took the penalty shots, the Natives took Yooyuball and and the slushies, and their fans were equally as enthusiastic resulting in an MSN draw. Annnnd the Terror Mountain Chillers swept the Faerieland Faeries. Hooray for Chillers. And I'm off. Midtime's next. [Brooke pulls a day planner from her stack of notes and wanders off, mumbling frantically under her breath and scribbling all over the planner. Midtime hurries into view just moments after she leaves, and takes their seat at the desk, quickly scanning the papers in front of them.] I'm terribly sorry! I was looking for my - ah, sorry, I'll get on with it. The teams in the Minitheus bracket have decided it is time to buckle down as we head into this Cup's fourth round! [Frantic whispering.] What do you mean, 'Brooke already -' oh. [Midtime stares down at their notes for several seconds.] Well, I don't see it. Still - [They slip the papers under the table.] - we're always better safe than sorry. I'll improvise. Anyway - the bracket began with a tense match between the fiery vitality of the Robots and the single-minded efficiency of the Magmas! Although the Magmas claimed victory at the slushie stands and among the crowd, Team Virtupets emerged narrowly but definitely the better on the field, thus earning greater accolades overall. Among fans, sentiments have been surprisingly fierce, though the spirit of sportsmanship still prevails. As we are now far into the second half of the Cup, it becomes imperative for both teams to seize the chances at glory that remain. Teams Tyrannia and Kreludor, both heavyweights of the season, must have felt the same pressure to succeed: they are separated by only two places, and a single loss could have decided which team will ultimately take a place on the podium. The Fossils played well, and the Moons fought hard; but they drew on the Yooyuball field, and their fans drew in the grandstands, and though Kreludor made the most extraordinary penalty shots, Tyrannia's slushies were so widely consumed among the audience that from one side of the stadium you could see their colours dominating the other. When the final whistle was blown, neither team had the victory they coveted. The Fossils are still two points short of third place, and the Moons are still three points short of taking the Cup home. Whatever the result should be for these contenders - already the best of the best - we wish them good luck. May the spirit of the Cup prevail. The Suns began this round auspiciously, crushing the Zombies soundly in every category. While no team that has qualified for the international Cup is to be easily dismissed, analysts say the Suns' consistency and coordination was of a rare calibre today. This is a moment "Trapper" Remis and his team may well agonise over for the rest of the off-season: what was different, this time? How can they make it happen again? It is the fourth round, and the Suns have just had their first sweep of the season. Let it not be their last! And let me conclude this bracket with a message to you, dear viewers. Do not be discouraged. You have watched; if you have watched, you have played. Your efforts are not without reward. Your games are not without goals. Your outcomes contain victories. If you have watched, you have played; if you have played, these victories - and these losses - are yours to claim. Your team thanks you for watching. They are playing for you. If you have watched, you have played; if you have played, it has been a good game. This has been the Minitheus bracket! Matt will give us the Vaeolus. Matt? [The camera focuses on Matt.] Alright, thank you! I'm back in the studio with my lovely co-hosts, ready to report the results of the Vaeolus Bracket. The fourth round started off with plenty of sweeps, so let's get straight into the results. Kiko Lake continues to dominate this year's Cup as they pull off yet another overwhelming sweep. The Minions fell victim to the Kikos in today's match as the Kikos dictated the pace of the entire match. Although the Kikos' scores have been dropping lately, one to two points seems to make no difference when they're sweeping their opponents with deficits of ten to twenty points. It seems as if no team stands a chance against the Kikos. Will they be able to run away with the Cup this easily? The Minions on the other hand need to get their act together. As it stands, the Minions are in danger of finishing eighth place, the lowest ever for this once mighty team. Darigan Citadel should take this defeat as a learning experience and use this as the first stepping stone to propel them to the top where they belong. The Mermaids were also able to pull off a clean sweep in their match against Shenkuu today. Although the Ninjas performed well in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, they were no match for the Mermaids today as wave upon wave of force pummeled the Ninjas into submission. Maraqua has gotten off to a fantastic start in this bracket, but the question remains. Can they keep up this momentum? The Ninjas will be looking to rally together and focus as they head into their next match against the Kikos. Luck has not been on the Ninjas' side this round as they will definitely struggle against the undefeated Kikos. Now moving on from that ominous feeling, the jolly Rooligans were...not as jolly today as Brightvale was able to demonstrate their yooyu-slinging prowess in today's matchup. With victories in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, the Rooligans had no option but to take the remaining games. However, to make matters worse, the Wizards were able to tie in Slushie Slinger. This excellent result is not without sacrifice however as the Wizards jumped ship and abandoned the SS Make Some Noise as they scored a meager one, allowing the Rooligans to finally have a small taste of victory. This give-and-take strategy seems to be quite effective, especially when lower tiered underdog teams face off against strong upper tier contenders. Will we be able to see more of this strategy be put to use in upcoming matches? Moving on, spectators will be delighted to know that there will be plenty of interesting matches to watch in today's match ups. In our first match, Meridell and Terror Mountain face off against each other today. Both teams are serious contenders for an upper tier finish. Terror Mountain is the favorite in this matchup, but will the Knights be able to pull off an upset with victories in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger? Another close match will be between mid tier teams Maraqua and Brightvale. It'll be a close match today as both teams are predicted to win two games apiece. If that's the case, the team that wins in Yooyuball will have the advantage in the overall results of the day's match. Our last interesting matchup is between Darigan Citadel and Roo Island. Both former champions have not been at their prime. Will this match serve as a wake up call to both teams? The overall victor of this matchup will be determined by one or two side game victories. A definite nail biter indeed! That wraps up our report! This is Matt signing off.

    So I just finished the water plant and I'm trying to find the next constellation. I've read a walkthrough and it says I have to find the necklace again. Problem is idk how to get back there. I've tried getting there from the quarry but I can't get over the wall again.
  9. Hey guys I'm really confused about yyb game caps. My team is telling me that the game max is 68 games(wins) but I think on the game guide it says 300 games?

  13. TL;DR Okay, this book is insane. I’ve been following so many guides for this. My coords are: (90,-234) (130,-264) (170,-294) (210,-294) (250,-264) (290,-234) It says 6,18 was my location. I tried that, and 18,6. NO DICE. I feel like it is broken as tabbing on the pages only spots neopet website links, and the doors, meaning there are no other links on said pages. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t http://www.thedailyneopets.com/altador-plot/spellbook-finder/ the top link to use for the coords? As a matter of fact THIS very website told me too: http://thedailyneopets.com/altador-plot/part14/ . So you’d think I wouldn’t have any problems, it would be simple, but of course it’s Neopets, nothing is that simple. It’s either broken, takes 15 minutes to load, and you forget what you’re doing, but I inputted my coords in the URLS correctly I might add. 1. neopets.com/altador/archives.phtml?goarch=5164c964d0ab8d3db24596bcba22753b&arcx=6&arcy=18&cmhv=c34359f7bb600f1e6577e265d41cd31e 2. neopets.com/altador/archives.phtml?goarch=5164c964d0ab8d3db24596bcba22753b&arcx=18&arcy=6&cmhv=c34359f7bb600f1e6577e265d41cd31e (Did not hyperlink because they are all personalized to the user, and will probably lead you too the Neopets homepage.)

  14. Advent Calendar

    Did anyone else find today's advent calendar to be absolutely sweet!?! I thought it was so cute, stupid I know, but it pulled on my heartstrings! lol ;D
  15. It's been ages since the Altador plot. I was so excited to come back to Neopets after ten years to find an interesting, vaguely long-term plot available. I've actually been looking for a good fantasy rpg and Altador assuaged the adventurer in me. I'm in a bit of a neopets rut at the moment. Wouldn't it be great to have more plots like that? I know they must take a lot of work, but golly it was fun. Did I seriously just say golly? There is no excuse for that. But anyway, thoughts anyone? I think it might have been the highlight of my Neopets career. I would love more content like it.
  16. Hey there :) I've been seriously thinking about creating a official guild related to Team Lost Desert and the Altador Cup. I'd need some partners and helpers and i'm looking for some here, but the main question I wanted to ask you... Would you join? I'd like some feedback please and if you think you can do anything for the guild (Like creating a custom background for the main page) Then feel free to offer. I'll be sure consider it! Thanks for reading and hopefully we can do this!
  17. Good morning, Neopians everywhere! This is Brooke, reporting from the TDN newsroom, and speaking rather more softly than usual because I have a tremendous headache, for some reason. Matt and I have been asked to "bury the hatchet", so for the moment, we've called a cease-fire. Besides, those were my best heels and the cleaning crew doesn't know where they ended up! So let's start things off with the Alabriss Bracket. Haunted Woods, the front-runners for the cup, and Kiko Lake started things off yesterday. Kiko Lake has been putting up relatively low scores this year, and while the Zombies' scores were quite a bit lower than usual, the Kikos were just no competition. The Zombies are feeling confident, and rightfully so, as they're basically shoo-ins for the podium at this point, and it certainly can't have hurt their egos to have swept the Kikos in all four events. Kiko Lake, however, could very well pull ahead into fourth if they play their cards right. The Darigan Citadel has been doing very well over the last couple of weeks, (and indeed, over the whole month, as they're currently tied for fourth!) and today was no exception. They defeated Meridell in three of four events. The Knights, however, refused to accept total defeat, charging in for a draw on the Yooyuball field. (See what I did there? They charged because they're Knights? And that's what... knights... do? *ahem*) They definitely did better against the Minions this time around! Hopefully they can hold their position without being knocked back any further. In our final match of the bracket, the Lost Desert took on Moltara. Lost Desert has had some hard luck this bracket, facing some of the giants of the Yooyuball field, and they stood no chance against the Magmas. Moltara has had a great year, and their position on the podium is all but certain. Their progress this season has definitely provided an inspiring example of what perseverance can do! So I guess, since he's here, I'll pass things over to Matt, who's been giving me the stink-eye for the last ten minutes. Matt? [Matt stops giving Brooke the stink-eye.] Thanks, Brooke. This is Matt, reporting live from the TDN newsroom. I've recovered after that head injury that I sustained last night. After being pressured from Lydia to cease the madness, Brooke and I have decided to try and play nice for the next few days. Let's hope this'll please Lydia so she'll get off our backs for a while, but for now we take a look at the results from the Minitheus Bracket! Tyrannia and Virtupets had a relatively easy time taking down Mystery Island and Shenkuu today respectively. The Natives and the Ninjas both suffered an incessant barrage of attacks, the offence of the other teams far superior to the defense of Mystery Island and Shenkuu. The unrelenting speed in slinging slushies and shooting penalty goals, as well as the booming cheers that could be heard from miles away, all contributed to their downfall. Both the Fossils and the Robots are currently enjoying their current positions in their bracket and in the overall standings, and they are most likely going to remain that way, unless a drastic event occurs. For the last matchup of the Minitheus Bracket, Krawk Island and Maraqua went head on today. The Pirates' mercurial gameplay style helped them take victories in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown today, the Pirates coming up with flexible strategies that were able to net them the wins. Maraqua was able to see through them in Slushie Slinger, as the Mermaids snagged the win, shutting the Pirates out. Fans of Maraqua were also able to take the win in Make Some Noise today, the fans cheering loud enough to drown out the Pirates. Get it? No? Come on! It's a better pun than what Brooke had! [A faint "Play nice!" is heard in the background. Matt makes a slight pouty face before concluding the Minitheus Bracket.] Anyways, that wraps up the Minitheus Bracket! Let's hand the bracket over to Midtime! [Cut to the Colosseum. Slushie tents are set up in the background.] "Er, no, thank you - both my hands are full. Hm? Oh! Right. "The Vaeolus Bracket has surprised us with its results, and the crowds are still ablaze with seasonal fervour. I will describe them. "The ever-enthusiastic Rooligans have had another good day, this time tying with the struggling, but still formidable, Team Kreludor. They also went on to top the Moons in all three side events, resulting in an all-around win. The draw, like most, was much talked about among the fans of both teams; although Kreludor's scores have fallen recently, they remain at seventh in the standings, and Roo Island's feat was nothing to scoff at. As usual, festivities for Rooligan fans seem set to continue for some time. "Brightvale took up the broom with a vengeance, sweeping Terror Mountain with record scores. While the Wizards were forecasted to win the match, their performance across the board, and especially their final shootout score and slushie ratings, are a pleasant surprise to all Brightvale fans. While people are divided over the exact cause of their success on the field, it could be fairly said that their slushies speak for themselves, as people are still flocking to the tents for a taste. "In a near-perfect reversal of their last encounter, Altador broke through the clouds to side-sweep Faerieland today, narrowly besting their scores in all three events. An exciting Yooyuball match, meanwhile, ended in a draw, keeping Altador from what would have been its first sweep. Still, this is Altador's first unambiguous victory, and fans are elated at their success. Team captain "Trapper" Remis addressed the team's supporters in an interview, thanking them for their dedication. "That's all for the Vaeolus Bracket. We shall now turn our attention to the day ahead. We ask you to pay particular attention to the Haunted Woods matchup versus Darigan Citadel, as performance analysis has uncovered the possibility that the Minions may take a game from them. Similarly, the tenacious members of team Kiko Lake will give Moltara a run for their money in the main events. The Ninjas, meanwhile, will attempt to make headway against the Mermaids, recently unpredictable in their scores. "Naturally, we at TDN will be first with the results! Good luck to all teams. This is Midtime, reporting for The Daily Neopets, signing off."

  18. Good morning, fans! This is Brooke, welcoming you once again to The Daily Neopets' Altador Cup coverage. And this time, I'm actually coming to you from inside the newsroom! At the desk, and everything! We've got another day of interesting results to show you, so let's get started with the Alab- [Matt storms into the newsroom on crutches, and walks over to Brooke at a surprisingly quick pace.] Oh, Matt! You're bac- [Matt proceeds to lift one of his crutches and push Brooke off her seat. She flails wildly, hitting her head on a conveniently placed rock. Matt drags her limp body out of the newsroom. A distant thud can be heard and Matt reappears in view of the cameras moments after.] I'll be taking over the results of the Alabriss Bracket for my lovely co-anchor Brooke, as she seems to be having difficulty maintaining a state of consciousness at the moment. The Alabriss Bracket was host to some fierce albeit one-sided competition today, as the powerhouse teams of the bracket showed once again why they're at the top of the pack! The Citadel and the Kikos met on the Yooyuball fields once again in an epic match. The Kikos' proficiency in handling Yooyus showed today, as they put up close scores in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. The Citadel, coming off their impressive victory against Lost Desert with record scores of 9 and 10 in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise respectively, clearly dominated today's matchup and were able to cleanly sweep the Kikos on all fronts. Haunted Woods, the one team almost certainly bound for victory this year, faced off against the Mummies today. Lost Desert put up a valiant effort in today's match; however, the Zombies inevitably swept them, and look to still be heading towards victory. If the Zombies are able to maintain this level of play consistently over the upcoming matches, they'll be guaranteed the Cup. The Knights and the Magmas clashed on the Yooyuball field today. It was a fierce game, both teams holding their own. The Knights were able to manage a draw in Yooyuball with Moltara today, focusing on a game that the Moltarans have a noticeable weakness in. With the Knights' attention on Yooyuball, Moltara was easily able to side-sweep the Knights. The Knights currently stand in 5th place in the Alabriss Bracket, and 9th place overall. They're having some noticeable trouble with this bracket, and seem to be running out of steam. If they can't pick up their slack, they're going to end up in 9th overall, a situation the Knights won't be happy to see. Anyways, that wraps up the matches in the Alabriss Bracket. Now, let's turn our attention over to the Minitheus Bracket, where the Mermaids were able to pull off a surprising swe- [A high-heel shoe comes flying from just out of shot and clocks Matt squarely in the head. He topples from the chair, his crutches flying rather comically into the air. Brooke walks casually back in front of the camera, adjusts her glasses, and takes her chair back.] [Dead-pan.] Oops. How clumsy of me. It would appear that my dear colleague has... erm... fallen down on the job. So I'll be taking the results of the Minitheus Bracket. Last year's victors were swept in our first match, as Virtupets took on Tyrannia. The Fossils' scores have been somewhat erratic this year, and the Robots managed to catch them on a low day, beating them by a wide margin in all events. It looks like Tyrannia will be forced off the podium this year, and Virtupets has a secure place on it. But there's always room for surprises in the final days of the Cup! Next up, the Pirates met the Ninjas on the field of (yooyu)battle, and found themselves well-matched. Their game on the field ended in a draw, as did their Slushie Sling-off. They split the remaining events, with very close scores. Krawk Island is currently in eighth place; with the right scores, they could pull ahead of Kreludor, but they could just as easily slide behind Meridell. Time will tell! In a confidence boosting match against Mystery Island, Maraqua summoned up the strength for their third sweep of the year. The Mermaids rallied for an epic eleven points in Make Some Noise, and their scores in the other games were high as well. The Natives' scores have dropped somewhat of late, and in the end it may cost them some positions before the Cup is over. Maraqua's success has pulled them out of the three-way tie and put them solidly in thirteenth. They may yet pull ahead of Roo Island for twelfth before the end. Now, seeing as how Matt's still... less than conscious, I think I'll just move right on to the Vaeolus Bracket. The Altador Suns ma- [A door opens in the background and Brooke is suddenly buried under an avalanche of cardboard rock cutouts. A few minutes pass while cleaning staff busily clear it away, leaving nothing behind.] [Midtime enters shortly after.] Is any one in here? No? That's strange. I was told to come up here and do the Vaeolus Bracket because we were short-staffed... [He hurries over to the desk and leafs through a stack of papers.] Ah, here we go. Greetings, every one. Interesting results in the Vaeolus Bracket today, aren't they? Let's start off. In a break from the ninth Cup's broom-infested quotidian, Altador's score in Slushie Slinger leaped to a surprising seven in their match against Roo Island. While Altador have been known to pull off the occasional upset, their performance today far exceeded any other they have given this year. Despite the shock of the occurrence, the Suns' Yooyuball performance did not improve as drastically as their slushie formulae, and Team Roo Island, unshaken, took the rest of the events. [Some one whispers something to him.] Yes? Yes, I am aware that the slushie-making process involves stirring. What has that got to do with anything? Never mind. A tense game between Kreludor and Brightvale ended in a magnificently frustrating draw. Fortunately, the side-games resolved the results - the Moons taking Make Some Noise, the Wizards taking Shootout Showdown, and Slushie Slinger going to neither team - such that the draw extended to the entire match. Brightvale captain Montecito looked on the results positively, noting that "this was an opportunity. We could have done more with it, but we didn't let it go, either." Faerieland have claimed a Yooyuball win against Terror Mountain, followed by a draw in Slushie Slinger - a better showing than they gave in their last match against the Chillers. Although Terror Mountain still took the remaining two side events, the exuberance of Faerie supporters is not difficult to justify. Ah, I know! Let's have an interview with one. I'll just pop outside with a microphone and camera, and grab some one. Hallo, there! I'm Midtime, from The Daily Neopets. I'd like to ask you a few questions about - Oh! Are you a reporter, then? Er - well, yes. Do I look like I'm filming a documentary about used microphone salesmen? That's perfect! So are we - from the Altador Sunshine - and you're just the person we were looking for. Are we live? Excellent. First question: How do you feel your working environment has affected your unhealthy obsession with rocks and wanton violence? I'm terribly sorry. You must have the wrong person. [After a smoke-bomb, some frantic running, and several shouts of 'Fire! Fire!', the camera feed cuts to the newsroom again.] Are we clear? I think so. Where were we? Um, all right. That wraps up the results for the Vaeolus Bracket. On to the matches to watch! Today Faerieland will be facing Altador once again. The two teams haven't met since their first face-off at the very start of the season. The Faeries swept that time, but Altador's recent good fortune may give them the advantage they need to come out on top. Maraqua's match with Krawk Island will be the test as to whether they can keep up their miraculous performance; and the Lost Desert may have a shot at taking a game from champion-league Moltara if they put their heart into it. That's all the Altador Cup news for today. This is Midtime, on behalf of The Daily Neopets crew, thanking you all very much for listening, and signing off.

  19. Hello and welcome, everybody! Matt here, reporting live from our newsroom. In a surprising turn of events, only three sweeps occurred today! Guess we won't have to use as many broom puns as the previous days. [A panicked cry is heard offscreen from the direction of the headline writer's office.] "But broom puns are all I had prepared!" Rrriiiiight. Let's start off the report with the Alabriss Bracket. The Faeries were absolutely overwhelmed by the strength of the Zombies. The Haunted Woods didn't let any signs of weakness show today, posting high scores in all games and leaving no space for the Faeries to slip through and snag a win. The Faeries are tied for 16th place with Terror Mountain overall, followed closely by Altador in 18th. Faerieland will be looking to hopefully improve their performance in the days to come. Yooyuball was a close game today in the match between Roo Island and Maraqua. It was a tense last few minutes as both teams struggled to gain the Yooyu and make the final desperate shot. As the final whistle was blown, everybody's eyes turned to the scoreboard where they saw a big flashing 4-4, signaling the teams had tied. But the Rooligans were determined to take some victories home today. They shot numerous goals, slung slushies, and with their supporters cheering on, side-swept the Mermaids. Elsewhere on the field, the Meridell Knights had a tough time defending against the offensive strength of Loryche and her team. Having only one defender wasn't a smart decision today for the Knights, as the Tyrannian offense took expert advantage of every opening they could find. As the dust settled on the game, Tyrannia came out ahead with a score of 7-5. The Fossils were also able to dominate the slushie tents, serving customers at lightning fast paces. Their enthusiasm skyrocketed through the room as they took Make Some Noise as well. The Knights were able to grab ahold of a victory in Shootout Showdown, exploiting Tyrannia's slight weakness in that game. While the Knights may have red in their record, they are sitting at 8th overall, tied with Krawk Island and Maraqua. Now, let's take a look at the matches from the Minitheus Bracket. [The voice from offscreen returns.] "Come on, there was a sweep in the Minitheus bracket! Why can't we use the broom pun titles?" Rrriiiiiight. As our headline writer loudly mentioned, Virtupets continued their winning ways today as they swept the Mummies. The Mummies were unable to withstand the onslaught of goals brought upon them by the Robots. Lost Desert has probably been worn out, as this is their second day fighting the Robots. Today they face off against Brightvale, so we'll see if they can do better. Brightvale pulled off a shocking near-sweep of the Kikos today. After their fantastic sweep against Krawk Island yesterday, the Kikos must've let their guard down today - a fatal mistake at this point in the Cup. Brightvale was able to take advantage of this, obtaining wins in almost all the games, sans Shootout Showdown which Kiko Lake barely managed to tie in today. Could this be the start of a downhill descent for the Kikos? Or will they be able to overcome this small bump and take a sweep home today against Altador, who will be looking to pull off another victory? Speaking of Altador, this underdog has managed to pull off yet another surprising victory! This is the third day in a row that the Suns have shocked their opponents with unexpected skill. Today's win for Altador occurred in Slushie Slinger, which seems to be the team's strong point this season, and we'll see if they'll try to hone their slinging skills in the days to come. The Kikos are definitely going to try to stop the Suns in their tracks. The Suns remain hopeful in the chance that they could pull off a major comeback., but they'll have to take it one match at a time. Now let's head to Midtime, who is out on the field once again to give us the rundown on the Vaeolus Bracket! [Cut to a field reporter who, since his last appearance, seems to have taken the time to procure a set of earmuffs that are, for a change, a modest grey.] "Thank you, Matt, for not making a joke about hovercraft or eels, which are all I've been getting since yesterday. Maybe I should actually try to learn Latin before using in public broadcasts. There's a lesson learned. "Well, at least our headline writer is still on board. With all these people being recalled to look for Austin, it looks like there's hardly any one left... "Ahem. The Vaeolus Bracket. I'll get to it, shan't I? "Kreludor's winning streak came to an abrupt halt with their match against Moltara. This may come as little surprise, considering the opponent; nonetheless, many feel that the Moons have been doing well recently, and should have been able to match the Magmas' performance at least in the central game. Instead, Kreludor's scores have dropped precipitously, and fans fear that this sweep is significant of more than just a single bad day. Pressed for answers, Captain Derlyn Fonnet insisted that recent results were just 'a byproduct of our ongoing efforts to develop a better strategy', avowing confidence that Kreludor will rise to its proper height well before the Cup ends. "The Natives have picked themselves up from their recent loss and come back with a vengeance, soundly defeating the Minions on the field and matching their efforts off it. The Minions' consistent performance, however, held up well enough - Mystery Island's performance in the shootouts has never been excellent, and the last side game went to the Citadel, offering more than a little consolation for their loss; while the fierce efforts of Native supporters, though surprisingly effective, were not quite enough to overwhelm the Darigan Citadel's... curiously well-organised cheering groups. Fascinating. Nonetheless, the Natives will be celebrating tonight, as the match is ultimately theirs. "After a series of devastating losses, Terror Mountain appear to have broken through the clouds once more at the considerable expense of their less elevated opponents, Shenkuu. A series of startling plays put the Chillers ahead in Yooyuball and the shootouts, and had the Terror Mountain crowd roaring their approval. The Shenkuu side was somewhat quieter, and though the quality of their slushie service could be said to be all that saved the Ninjas from a sweep today, it remains to be seen whether they can muster up the enthusiasm to redeem their name in the remainder of the Cup. "That's all the matches for today; thank you for listening. I shall send you back to Matt, now, and he'll sort out the matches to watch. Have a good day." Thanks, Midtime! Polar opposites clash on the field today as Moltara takes on Terror Mountain. Tensions will certainly be high today as the Chillers will be looking to see if they can make a dent in the Magma's nearly spotless record - a tough feat indeed for them to attempt. Also, keep an eye out for the rematch between Darigan Citadel and Mystery Island. The Minions will be looking to redeem themselves after their loss to the Natives, which should make for an intense match. That's it for today's report! This is Matt signing o- [An angry-looking woman appears on-screen, tossing papers in the air as she crosses in front of Matt.] "... expect me to title this report? No, I am not prepared for this. I stayed up all night working on those puns, and your copy editor can't make coffee! Hire yourself a new headline writer! I QUIT!" [On this dramatic note, the broadcast ends.] Obligatory disclaimer: This news report was written to inform you all of the latest Altador Cup results in as entertaining a manner as possible.

  20. [A reporter stands outside the Altadorian Colosseum.] Mea navis volitans anguillis plena est, viewers! Wait - that isn't right. [He produces a phrasebook and opens it to a bookmarked page.] Ahem. Salvete, I meant. This is Midtime of The Daily Neopets, welcoming you to another day of results from the Altador Cup. Despite rumblings yesterday it seems that order has not been completely overthrown, as we come back yet again to a scoreboard composed mainly of sweeps. I'll start off with the Alabriss Bracket. Tyrannia have been having another good day, crushing the Faeries on the field and overwhelming them in the side games. The Faeries have been putting up a fight the entire Cup, but they had little opportunity to display their remarkable synergy this match, as the Fossils' brutal offence kept the Yooyu constantly out of the hands of their defenders. While Faerieland's performance has done little to encourage the players or their fans, captain Kakoni Worrill remains adamant that the team will yet see better days - saying to reporters, "It takes a while to rise above the clouds." After suffering severe losses over the past few days, the Knights have gotten back on their feet, and ended their match against the Rooligans with a score of 5-4 in their favour, to much celebration. Roo Island, who have recently been making great headway against the teams of their bracket, would no doubt point instead to their victory in the side games, where their enthusiasm and professionalism have given them a clear advantage in everything but the shootouts. The Haunted Woods' victory over Maraqua, though no surprise, was still a bitter event for the Mermaids, who have not seen a sunny day since their victory over Altador in the second round. The Zombies' scores have risen again just as precipitously as they fell yesterday, leaving their enemies with no opportunity whatsoever to prevent total defeat. While Maraqua are once again contemplating their loss and reconsidering their approach, Zombie supporters already consider their podium position a sure thing. Next is the Minitheus Bracket, which Matt will outline for you. I'll send you over to him now. Mea navis volitans anguillis plena est! Oh, that wasn't 'have a nice day' either? Bother me... [As the reporter leafs through his phrasebook once again, the feed cuts to Matt in the newsroom.] Thanks, Midtime! I think you should call the exterminator to get rid of those eels. They can get pretty dangerous. Any way, we are severely short-staffed in the newsroom today and even our trusty camera-rock is gone! Now who'll operate the camera? All the reports have gone missing, and the only remnant of Austin that I have left is his trusty mustache. Let me see if I can...please excuse me for a minute... [Matt gets up and walks out of the view of the camera. Rustling noises can be heard as if he is trying to find something. Moments later he reappears in front of the cameras with a cardboard cutout of Austin. He places the cutout on the seat next to him, presumably where the co-anchor would sit.] Here we... oh, wait! So silly of me. How could I forget the most important part? [He takes the shiny black mustache and attaches it to the cardboard cutout of Austin.] There we go, perfect! My very own personal Austin. I feel much better now. Let's get back to the Altador Cup; the results have just come in, so I'll get straight to work. Let's take a look at the Minitheus Bracket. Krawk Island wasn't able to stand up against the might of Kiko Lake, whose scores towered over their own today. The Pirates were not so high and mighty this time, posting dismal scores of 3 in both Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise; the Kikos seized the advantage and dominated in those games, with a margin of up to four points! Kiko Lake must be pleased with their standing in the bracket right now, as they're currently in second, with the Pirates trailing behind in third. The Kikos are doing very well this season - overall they're tied for 5th place with Darigan Citadel. Will they be able to maintain their current level of gameplay? We also have our guaranteed sweep of the day as we take a look at the match between Virtupets and Lost Desert. Of course, the Mummies were no match for the ferocious Robots as Virtupets takes another sweep under their belts. The Robots are the only undefeated team, a title that many others will be looking to ruin! They are currently first in their bracket, tied with Haunted Woods and Moltara overall. All in all they are poised to become a repeat winner, the first in the Cup's history. Even if they don't come out on top this year, they already have a podium spot with their name on it. Breaking news for this last matchup everyone! I've just been informed that Altador has won not one but TWO, yes, TWO games today. It was finally their chance to shine as they blinded the Brightvale Wizards with their overwhelming vigour and endurance, snagging Make Some Noise and Slushie Slinger. The Wizards retaliated with victories in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, however. Overall the Suns are ecstatic with today's performance. This follows another win the day before in Slushie Slinger against Lost Desert. The sun has finally broken through the clouds and its brilliance is shining upon the Altador stadium! We'll see if the Suns can keep this up; they certainly have a lot more confidence and pride walking away from today's match! Now I turn the report over to Brooke, who'll cover the Vaeolus Bracket for us! [Brooke runs in breathlessly, hair a mess and still in her pajamas. She yanks the cardboard cutout of Austin out of its spot, and plops down in its place.] Sorry, Matt, I overslept. I don't know about you, but I sort of lose all sense of schedule once summer gets going! I just- Wait, why do you have a life-size cutout of Austin? Never mind, I don't want to know. Uh... right, the report. [Brooke pulls a large pile of papers from her backpack and hurriedly digs through them, occasionally giving the camera a nervous grin.] Ahh, here we are. The results from the Vaeolus Bracket! [Brooke unceremoniously shoves all the irrelevant papers off the desk, leaving one page remaining.] Mystery Island faced off against Kreludor today, and while the results for the Natives have been a bit of a mixed bag this year, the Moons have been winning fairly consistently, particularly in Shootout Showdown. Today was certainly no exception, as Kreludor took Mystery Island down in three out of four games. The Natives managed to hold off the Moons enough for a draw in Slushie Slinger, avoiding a sweep. The results of the match between Darigan Citadel and Terror Mountain were similar today, as Slushie Slinger was again the point of upset. The Minions' recent pattern of a sweep every other day was disrupted as the Chillers rose to the occasion, beating them 6-4 against the jelly Chia. Our final match of the day proved that the brooms are determined to be a part of this year's Cup, as Moltara swept Shenkuu solidly in all four games. In fact, the Magmas achieved a whopping 18 points in Make Some Noise, their highest score in any game yet! Shenkuu's strong start against the weaker teams seems to have been something of a fluke, but there's plenty of time for them to turn things around. They may yet sneak up on us with some wins! That wraps up things in the Vaeolus Bracket. I'll turn things back over to my crazy- I mean… er... unique colleague. Matt? Thanks, Brooke! And no, I'm not crazy, maybe just a little loopy. Keep an eye out for these matches today, as the game between Shenkuu and Terror Mountain will be a close one. Terror Mountain was able to pull off a win in Slushie Slinger against Darigan Citadel yesterday, so we'll see if they can pull that off and maybe even more today! You should also keep an eye on the Roo Island versus Maraqua match - it's definitely going to be a great one! That's all for today's report! Thanks for watching, and we'll see you tomorrow.

  21. Welcome, everybody! Matt here, reporting from the TDN newsroom! Let's get straight into the results from the Alabriss Bracket. Sweep after sweep after sweep occurred today in the Alabriss Bracket! Maraqua and Faerieland fell victim to the overwhelming strength of Tyrannia and Roo Island, respectively. After a slew of losses in their first round, the Rooligans seem like they've started to gain momentum. Granted, their sweep today was against one of the weakest teams this season, but it was still well deserved. We'll see if their recent success will give them enough motivation to start making a comeback. The Mermaids' rough patch has lasted throughout the entire season so far, and they've only managed to snag a few wins, with their only sweep being against Altador. The opposite holds true for the Fossils, however, as teams are finding it hard to obtain a win against such a well-organized, solid team. The Fossils currently stand in second place, trailing behind Haunted Woods. Behind the Fossils sit the Meridell Knights comfortably in third, almost assured that spot unless the Mermaids make a miraculous push to overtake the Knights, or the Knights are able to surpass the Fossils. Neither of which options seems very likely to happen. Will the Mermaids' performance improve in the near future? Will the Fossils continue to assert their dominance? Only time will reveal these answers to us. The Haunted Woods took on Meridell today and with the Knights' performance spotty throughout the entire season, it was no surprise that they ended up being swept by the Zombies. They came close in Yooyuball, but the Zombies made a final push that resulted in a win for them. In the side games, the Zombies completely dominated, posting scores way out of the Knights' range. This match has proven that the powerhouses of this season do have their notable weaknesses. It's up to the teams to organize themselves, focus, pinpoint, and exploit those said weaknesses. It's time to hand over the report to Lydia, who'll be covering the Minitheus Bracket, where some few upsets have occurred today! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the Zombies' tent to grab some slushies. I'll be sure to save some for you guys! "Thanks, Matt! You'd best save one for me! The Minitheus Bracket has definitely caused a stir today, with two firsts for this tournament. Altador fans were making quite the racket when the scores from Slushie Slinger went up, marking their first win in any game this tournament. Their jubilation wasn't enough, as the Lost Desert was able to take the rest of the games from the Suns. "But the biggest news comes from the Kikos. Their draw in Shootout Showdown wouldn't cause a stir on most days, but today it was against Virtupets - marking the first time they haven't completely swept away their opponent. While this dent in their armor isn't going to hurt their chances at a top spot on the podium, it gives the other teams hope when facing them in the coming days. "Brightvale and Krawk Island rounded out the Minitheus Bracket. Both teams have been having a spotty season, with unexpected and sporadic wins. Today's fairly evenly matched game was no different, with Yooyuball and Make Some Noise going to the Wizards and Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown going to the Pirates. Neither of these teams should be underestimated in the coming days. I'll pass it over to Midtime now, with the final bracket of the day." "Thank you very much, Lydia. I'll get straight to the Vaeolus results. "Following a satisfying first round and an almost perfect second, Moltara show no sign of relenting. The Minions' fans, hoping for a field performance like that which toppled the Lost Desert and Krawk Island, instead watched as Moltara's fledgling but capable Aldric Beign once again led his team to a close, but certain victory. The Magmas' victory was rounded out by their usual high ratings in the side games, completing the Darigan Citadel's fourth sweep at the hands of this year's powerhouses. The thunderous cheers of Moltara's supporters still echo through the stadium, on which topic do these people ever quiet down?" [The reporter defiantly clamps a pair of large, orange earmuffs onto his head before continuing.] "Ahem. DC captain Layton Vickles called the defeat "deeply frustrating" - do I have to read his Ss exactly as he said them? Fine. - Layton Vickles called the defeat "deeply frussstrating", but asssserted that he had "no intention of sssettling for sssecond placcce". There - was that sssatisfactory? "The Scary - oh, excuse me. Bad habit. The Chillers' victory against Maraqua two days ago left them hopeful, quite naturally, for a change in fortunes; but it seems those hopes were easily crushed, as their rising scores have faltered once again. The Moons', by contrast, have recently skyrocketed; despite their rocky second round, it appears that few teams are now able to stand in their way. "The Mystery Island Natives are also intent on maintaining their recent good fortune, following their sweep against Altador with a dominating victory against Shenkuu. While their demonstration of steady Yooyuball prowess is fully appreciated by fans, most remarked upon this match appears to have been a vast improvement in their catering system - no doubt a long-term investment. The Ninjas made sure the win was a narrow one, however, and dodged the stroke of the broom through a series of penalty shots much talked about by the audience. Despite their record this past round, our Occidental team is determined, like many of those closer to home, to fight to the last. "Thank you for watching, every one. That's the report for to-day. Lydia will provide you with the matches to watch for the day to come." "Thanks, Midtime! We've got almost a full day of sweeps predicted for today, so get out there, prove us wrong, and help us stop the angry letters! Good luck to all the teams out on the field today: we'll see you back here tomorrow, same time - same place! This is Lydia, for The Daily Neopets, signing off."

  22. [Lydia is in a dimly lit area, with heavy machinery above her head, though everything is currently still. She beckons the cameraman forward, and it focuses on a pen, in which sleeping Yooyus can be spotted. She speaks in a whisper to the camera.] We're here below the Colosseum, at the Yooyu pen. This one appears to be the painted Yooyus. From what I can tell they keep them in separate pens, alternating between the two during matches. [Lydia unlatches the pen door and lets herself in, the cameraman not far behind. There are easily close to a hundred Yooyus in this large pen, most of whom are asleep, while others are playing in the corner. She cautiously approaches the awake ones, who stop playing to look at her. She crouches down and holds out a Yooyu treat she had stashed in her pocket. A brave faerie Yooyu comes forward to sniff it, and then takes it from her, rolling up into a ball and flying back to the others. The rest surge forward a group of about ten sniffing at her pockets and chittering at her. A few crawl on her, curling up in her arms or sitting at her shoulder to talk directly into her ear.] What's all this racket? [A man carrying a lantern enters the pen, a fire Yooyu perched on his shoulder.] [The Yooyus in the group that hadn't made new best friends with Lydia rolled over to him, weaving in and out of his legs.] I'm sorry, we were down here to get some footage of the Yooyu pens for later segments. [He bends down to pick up a mutant Yooyu that was pawing at his leg, hanging the lantern off one of the bars of the pen.] That's fine, they really don't get enough attention. I think sometimes the fans forget that without the Yooyus, there wouldn't be a Cup. You're completely right. I presume you're their caretaker? Do you have time for an interview? I am, in fact. I would love to do an interview. I wish I saw more people down here, maybe you can bring people down to see the Yooyus. Despite what the bigwigs say, I'll let just about anyone in to see them. What's the job like? Oh, well, you have your good days and your bad. I have a few apprentices that keep me on my feet. The off-season is always nice. Team members typically each adopt a group of Yooyus, one of each type. It lets them practice and the Yooyus have fun exploring the other lands. I never thought about that. So, can you tell us what really happens with the Clockwork Yooyus? [He laughs.] Those sneaky little things. They get bored very quickly and so throw up a smoke screen with a loud bang and disappear back into the pen to play with their friends. It gave the players quite the fright the first few times. They escape unharmed though. Presumably you're not supposed to have favorites, but I think you might. [she nods at the fire Yooyu on his shoulder.] This little guy? He was the first fire Yooyu, dating back to the first Cup in Year 8. We only had one of each then, with only a few matches a day. All of the originals retired some years ago. It's rumored that the faerie one lives with Queen Fyora, but that's not true. They're all in Altador, and they still meet up regularly. They mostly stay out of the public eye, but you'll see their owners about. Even the famed Angry Yurble has one of them. He's got a soft spot for Yooyus... but you didn't hear that from me! Definitely not. How often do the Yooyus retire? What happens to them? Ah, well, different Yooyus like to stay different lengths of time. Rarely we'll retire them due to an injury, though we try not to do more than bench them. They're really resilient, I've only seen two forced into retirement due to injuries - and neither due to a match. Fans come and adopt them after the Cup, typically. Many of them get adopted by players and former players. I can't think of a single player who doesn't have at least one Yooyu as a pet, to be honest. So why only these colors? Yooyus come in so many different colors. What about the reds, the Christmas Two main reasons. The biggest is to cut down on confusion. Imagine being mid-game in the big match against your rival. A red Yooyu pops up. Is it fire or is it red? You have a split second to formulate your strategy based on that. Maybe it's easy if you're on the front line, but what about those on defense, or the goalies? They won't know. The other part is that the Yooyus come to us. In Year 8, it was the small band of fire, ice, faerie and mutant Yooyus that approached King Altador when he proposed re-opening the games. The clockwork, darigan and brown Yooyus followed later. That makes sense. Thank you so much for taking this time for an impromptu interview. I need to head back to the studio, who knows what trouble Austin and Matt have already gotten themselves into. We'll see you around again later this year, hopefully!
