  1. My Bob Ross-lookin' Lenny won first place in the neopoints Customization Spotlight! Man, I feel like I've really made it. My geek heart is bursting. My boyfriend looked at me like I was crazy, but I knew you guys would understand. Today I went to enter my neopets in the Customization Spotlight (as I do sometimes on an arbitrary basis), and it told me I couldn't enter my Lenny because he had won within the past 2 months. *Huh?!* I thought. I checked the results, and lo and behold. They didn't send me a Neomail notification about it, and I have no idea how much I won, but I'm jazzed! The little fellow is even in the news. Yippee!
  2. Well. Here we are. My friends, the long-awaited day has come. Every single one of you has worked your fingers to the bone in one capacity or another, and we've been glad to be right there with you every step of the way. This is Brooke, bringing you the very last report for the tenth Altador Cup, in our beloved studio here at The Daily Neopets. This occasion is so very bittersweet. Funnily enough, that word also describes this rather disappointing cup of coffee. Without further adieu, I bring you the final results! The brooms certainly had the last laugh today, as every single one of today's nine matches ended in a sweep. The Alabriss bracket brought us three entirely expected shutouts. First, the Kikos went up against the Mummies. Kiko Lake finished out the year with one last sweep, with only a single blemish on their record. The Lost Desert has had a fairly good year as well, only being swept themselves a handful of times. The match between the Darigan Citadel and Moltara brought us our second sweep. The last time these two went head-to-head, the Magmas managed a single win. Today, however, the Minions got the best of them. The Magmas have ended the Cup with not a single sweep to show for it. But there's always next year! The last match of the last Alabracket showed Meridell coming up against the Haunted Woods. The Zombies have fallen far from their win in last year's cup, and just couldn't catch a break Today was no exception, as they fell prey to the Knights' superior skills. Again. Last time they pulled off at least a draw, but this time they had no such luck. The Knights, however, have had their best round yet to finish off the year! Next up, the Minitheus bracket! I'd ask Midtime to do it, but they went undercover as a slushie vendor earlier today and they haven't come back yet. I hope they're okay... Anyway. The Minitheus bracket brought us some interesting matchups as well. Maraqua marched into the final match with their heads held high and filled with visions of beating back the fearsome Fossils. But Tyrannia surprised no one when they completely shut out the Mermaids. They've suffered sweeps only twice this year, at the hands of the Kikos. Shenkuu took on Mystery Island next. The Natives ran roughshod over the unprepared Ninjas, who won only a single game in the last three rounds combined. Ouch. The Natives, however, were thrilled to end things on a high note with their third sweep of the year. The culminating matchup of the Minitheus bracket fell to Krawk Island and Virtupets. The Robots landed a sweep today, making for an even fifth of their total days of play. The Pirates ultimately did them one better, managing six sweeps total. Last but not least, let's cruise through the Vaeolus bracket. Joining the ranks of the (highly unofficial) five-sweeps club today was Brightvale as they took on Altador and summarily drove them into the ground. The Suns were a few steps behind the Wizards as they earned just two sweeps this year. Perhaps they'll shine brighter next year? Next, the Rooligans staged an epic comeback against the Faeries, who beat them in two of four events in round three. This time around, Roo Island swept Faerieland under the rug with extreme prejudice. The Faeries didn't attain a single sweep all year, but they did pull off some pretty impressive wins against teams they've been flattened by before. And now the absolute last result I will deliver to you, my friends! Kreludor swept Terror Mountain, were only swept twice (by the Kikos, surprise surprise), and are generally feeling good about themselves. The Chillers were close behind, swept only thrice, and definitely have their own triumphs to celebrate today. So. That's the last matchup. And what a year it's been! I'll turn things over to Matt, who will give us the final standings overall, from the bottom of the heap all the way to the top tier! Take us out, Matt! After twenty-five days of intense gameplay, Altador Cup X has finally ended! This is Matt, live from the studio with the results of the final rankings for each team! It is time to crown another winner, and we'll find out which team that is in a moment. But first, in order to build up suspense, I'll be revealing rankings from bottom to top! So as to not waste any of your precious time, let's get started with the eighteenth place team! Coming in eighteenth were the Zombies who were dealt a major blow by the "Winner's Curse" in this year's Cup. After starting off the first round with a sprinkle of wins, Haunted Woods was unable to find any green for four days, and they had continuous dry streaks throughout this Cup. However, with the brunt of the curse over with, fans should expect the Zombies to stage a comeback in next year's Cup. Next in seventeenth we have Moltara! Although the Magmas had a rough start to the tournament, they were able to pick up some wins by the middle of the Cup. Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise were the Magmas' strong points throughout this tournament where they earned five wins, higher than many analysts were predicting. Overall, the Magmas exceeded expectations, and we'll have to wait and see until next year if they're able to make a splash like they have done before. Our next four teams were separated by only four points! It was a close fight to rise out of the lower tiers. Rounding out the bottom three in sixteenth place with forty-two points were the Robots. Although the Robots had a rough start to the tournament, by the fourth round they were able to get their engines going and gather up wins. They might not be the same podium performing team as they were last year, but the Robots had notable moments with their two-time victory against Krawk Island, and the tie with Tyrannia in Make Some Noise. The Robots have shown that they are capable of holding their own against powerhouse teams, but they'll need to work on their bracket performances if they wish to make a comeback in next year's tourney. In fifteenth place with forty-three points are the Mystery Island Natives! The Natives may have dropped from their eleventh place finish from last year, but they're still as strong as ever. Holding their own against Krawk Island twice, and defeating the Minions the second time around, the Natives were a force to be reckoned with this year. However, the Natives are in the same boat as the Robots. With excellent performances in the four games all around, they'll need to figure out how to rise up in the bracket standings to rack up more points. Brightvale is next coming in fourteenth place with forty-four points! The Wizards were one of the best lower middle teams in this tournament. They gained notable recognition among all the teams when Monticeto led his team to a fantastic 12-7 win in Yooyuball against the Kikos, ruining their near perfect tournament record. Although the Wizards placed lower than expected, they'll forever be etched into the annuls of Altador Cup history! Rounding out the bottom six was Faerieland with forty-five points! The Faeries made team history this Cup coming in thirteenth, the highest ever placing for the long standing underdog team! The Faeries' yooyuball skills were much more refined in this year's Cup, earning them crucial points. The Faeries win record in Yooyuball came close to Altador Cup greats like Krawk Island, Darigan Citadel, and Roo Island. Outperforming many of the other underdog teams, it may be time for the Faeries to leave their underdog title behind and aspire to greater heights! After their drastic drop to the bottom of the pack in last year's Cup, the Suns are slowly rising back up with a twelfth place finish! They were well rounded in this year's Cup, earning four wins in each of the four games. While it may not be the podium performing team we saw in Altador Cup VIII, it is a step in the right direction. Similar to the Faeries, it may be time for the suns to shed off their underdog title and pass on that torch. Shenkuu rose up in the standings to claim an eleventh place finish in this year's Cup with fifty-three points, only one ahead of the Suns' fifty-two. The Ninjas started out the tournament with strong victories in the first round, mainly in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. However, they struggled by the third round, going on a long dry streak that ended after their win in Slushie Slinger against the Robots in the fifth round. Shenkuu will need to improve in stamina during the off-season in order to continue to rise in the standings. This year's finish will be a stepping stone for the Ninjas to improve in the future. Heading into the middle tiers, Maraqua performed consistently throughout the entire tournament, landing them a safe tenth place finish. An improvement from last years' twelfth place finish, the Mermaids will be looking to once again rise up in next year's Cup. With notable victories against Darigan Citadel and twice against the Pirates, this final rank was well-deserved, but the Mermaids will need to improve their Yooyuball skills slightly to improve their overall rank. Darigan Citadel came in ninth place, making team history, albeit, the wrong type of history. This year's finish marks the first time the Minions have finished below seventh place. With a great start to the tournament, the Minions' lost steam in the fourth and fifth round, struggling to gain any victories, only finding success against underdog teams. This seems to be a constant issue for the Minions, who will need to address this during the off-season if they wish to be the powerhouse team that they once were. Meridell finished in eighth place with seventy-seven points, tied with Krawk Island. Although it was only a jump up one spot from last year's Cup finish of ninth, the Knights showed many signs of improvement. Meridell will be a team to watch out for in next year's Cup, as they're slowly improving and rising to the upper tiers. The Knights hit a rough patch in the middle of the tourney, so they'll have to figure out how to overcome that issue. With seventy-seven points, the Pirates finished in seventh place! Like the Knights, this finish is a one up from last year's Cup. This may mark the beginning of a return for the Pirates, and with consistent performances throughout this Cup the only area the Pirates will need to focus on is dealing with powerhouse teams. Krawk Island has certainly proved rumors that they've past their prime as false, and will be working even harder to rise up and be the powerhouse team they once were. After their three-way tie for thirteenth last year, Roo Island made a significantly large jump up the standings to land in sixth place! They performed excellently in this year's Cup, especially in the side games where they were able to obtain their majority of wins. Although their Yooyuball skills could use some polishing, the Rooligans excelled in Make Some Noise. However, we've seen this pattern before with the Rooligans, and if history will indeed repeat itself, the Rooligans are in for a rough season next year. The Chillers also were able to break a previous team record by finishing fifth in this year's Cup. With average scores of 7's and 8's throughout the entire tournament, the Chillers were known for their side game prowess. Only losing three games in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown, the Chillers were a force to be reckoned with! If they can make a few changes to improve their Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger performances, their chances at a podium finish in next year's Cup will improve. Will they be able to scale the daunting mountain? Like the Rooligans, the Mummies made a drastic jump in the standings and finished in fourth this year. Although the Mummies won less game compared to the Chillers, they were consistent throughout the entire Cup. The Mummies started off the Cup strong, winning thirteen of fifteen matches overall in the first three rounds of gameplay. They faltered slightly in the fourth round, but regained their groove in the fifth, finishing the tournament with solid overall results across the board. The Mummies have been bouncing in between upper and lower tier finishes, so spectators will be wondering if the Mummies will suffer a drop in the standings in next year's Cup. Now it's time for the teams who placed on the podium! It was a tough fight as there were many podium contenders in this year's Cup, but these three teams were able to best the rest of the competition! Tyrannia finished in third, taking home the bronze this year! After their win in Altador Cup VIII, the Fossils are still going strong with a fourth place finish in Altador Cup IX and now a third place finish. With only a handful of losses throughout the entire tournament, the Fossils steamrolled through the competition to take the well deserved podium finish. Tyrannia was able to beat down the "winner's curse", and still perform consistently. Will they be able to take the Cup yet again next year? After their two-time seventh place finish in Altador Cup VIII and IX, the Moons have graced the podium with their presence once again finishing just short of first place. Kreludor performed very well throughout the entire Cup, only losing a handful of games to the other podium finishers. The Moons were also known for their side game prowess averaging results of 8's and 9's. Although they aren't as immune to the "winner's curse" as the Fossils are, the Moons are still a strong team that has a chance to aim for the Cup once again in next year's tourney. Now, the moment that you've all been waiting for! The winner of the tenth annual Altador Cup is none other than Kiko Lake! The Kikos dominated the rest of the teams in this year's Cup, gathering a seventeen day win streak before Brightvale came along. Only dropping one game this entire season, the Kikos were just short of a tournament record twenty-five day win streak. However, the Kikos did set new side game records this year with high scores of twenty in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, and a mind-boggling score of thirty in Make Some Noise. The Techo would certainly be proud! The big question on everyone's mind currently is the "winner's curse", and how badly it'll affect the Kikos, if at all. However, all will be revealed next year, and as for now the Kikos will enjoy celebrating this magnificent victory with some treats from the lake! I know the staff here at The Daily Neopets will certainly be enjoying the festivities.

  3. Good morning, sports fans! This is Brooke, proudly welcoming you to the last day of The Daily Neopets' Altador Cup coverage. It's been quite the interesting month, what with the violence and the subterfuge, the rocks and the cardboard cutouts... and the sports, of course! Before we congratulate the winners, let's see how things went for everyone on the last day of play. Monday's results featured a record number of sweeps: eight out of nine match-ups! The sweeps started in the Alabriss Bracket, where Kiko Lake really gave it their all against the Lost Desert. The Kikos pulled off their highest scores of the season at the last minute, giving them seven- and eight-point wins in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The Kikos' scores put them in sixth, just shy of the fourth-place tie, and the Mummies' in sixteenth, just short of the thirteenth-place tie. The Magmas went up against the Minions on Monday, and, unsurprisingly, took their third sweep in as many days. Moltara exhibited a certain weakness in Yooyuball this year, but while this was their closest game with the Darigan Citadel, they still managed to pull ahead by a point. The side events were all taken by quite a few points. The Magmas took us all by surprise this year, rocketing to the podium after several years at the bottom of the heap. They took third place this year by an impressive margin, leaving Darigan Citadel behind them and tied for fourth. In the last match of the Alabriss Bracket, Meridell took on the Haunted Woods. The Zombies predictably wiped the floor with the Knights, who put up slightly higher-than-average scores, but were ultimately unable to put a dent in the armor of the Altador Cup's new giants. After last year's ninth-place finish, the Zombies improved leaps and bounds to become the first ever repeat-winners of the coveted cup. Meridell landed in ninth place this year, which is a bit of a drop from last year, but still a modest sh- [A stream of dust pours from the ceiling and onto the desk. Brooke examines the pile, examines the ceiling, shrugs, and brushes the dust from the desk.] Showing. Next up, the Minitheus Bracket! Maraqua and Tyrannia kicked things off with a close and heated battle on the Yooyuball field. While the Fossils' scores were a smidge lower on Monday than their average, the Mermaids' were right in line with their average, allowing the Fossils' to take the sweep. It's been a hard year for Maraqua, despite their Centre Forward, Elon Hughlis, being the second best goal scorer overall. Their large size proved to be something of a downfall for them, pulling them into twelfth place in the final standings. Meanwhile, last year's victors, Tyrannia, netted themselves a fourth-place tie, avoiding the embarrassment of failing hard right after winning big. The Pirates met the Robots in our next match, and bravely faced their second sweeping in as many days. Krawk Island performed as well as could be expected, but were no match for Virtupets' consistently higher scores. The Pirates took eight place this year, which is their lowest position to date, but their Goalkeeper, Garven Hale, assured us that they've learned a lot this year and will be a force to be reckoned with next season. The Robots had us all intimidated from the get-go, pulling off an impressive ten straight matches without so much as a single draw. They weren't swept once, and their consistent strength carried them to a solid second-place victory. Shenkuu and Mystery Island went head-to-head on Monday in the only matchup that wasn't a complete sweep. The Natives may have bested the Ninjas soundly in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown, but Shenkuu crept up on Mystery Island for a very close game on the Yooyuball field, and rallied for a draw in Slushie Slinger. Shenkuu's history in the AC has been a mixed bag of positions, and this year placed them in the second-lowest spot they've held yet. They landed right in the middle of a cushy three-way tie for thirteenth. The Natives experienced a significant drop in ranks last year, and are slowly working their way back up. They climbed four places up from last year's showing to land in eleventh. Finally, let's look at the results of th- [Several pieces of debris fall from the ceiling now, along with a significantly larger stream of dust than before. Brooke's notes are covered, and she is temporarily obscured from view by clouds of white dust. She coughs and flutters her papers, dispelling some of the dust. She peers up at the ceiling, irritated, then shakes her head and clears her throat.] [a bit hoarsely] How rude! I hope the ceiling can keep itself together until I finish the Vaeolus Bracket! The Moons swept the Chillers in a series of rather close events, though by smaller margins than last time the teams met. Terror Mountain closed out the season with three sweeps in a row, but managed to get in on the three-way tie for thirteenth with Shenkuu and Roo Island. Both Terror Mountain and Kreludor tied with their own record-lowest positions, as Kreludor cruised in at seventh place, just as they did last year. The Rooligans bounced all over the Faeries in their second and last meeting. Roo Island started things off with a hat-trick of losses against some very powerful teams, but their consistency paid off in Monday's match against Faerieland. Overall the Roos wound up in a three-way tie for thirteenth place, a bit disappointing after last year's spot on the podium. The Faeries managed, once again, to avoid placing dead last, edging out the Suns by just a few points for seventeenth place. And last but not least, (except... technically they are...) Altador came up against Brightvale. Brightvale lucked out with three sweeps this bracket, after only one other sweep in the rest of the season. Over the last few years, the Wizards have been slowly making their way up from their last-place finish, and finished off this year in tenth place. The Suns experienced a startling plummet to the bottom of the pile after their astonishing second-place finish last year. They've definitely proven they can surprise us, so who knows what will happen next year? In both summary and conclusion, we would like to congratulate the winners: the Haunted Woods Zombies have won Altador Cup IX! This officially makes them the only team to win the Cup more than once. The Virtupets Robots took second place, and the Moltaran Magmas took third. Congratulations to all the teams on their hard work, and congratulations to each and every one of you who supported your team with your own time and effort! [Orange and black confetti bursts from offscreen, as the rest of the TDN AC coverage team, minus Austin, joins Brooke in front of the camera, brooms in hand.] On behalf of myself, Lydia, Midtime, Matt, Hanna, Livvy, LivCat, Nadia, the camerapeople, the interns, our savagely underpaid maintenance staff, and the whole crew here at The Daily Neopets, we would like to thank you for choosing us for your Altador Cup IX coverage.

  4. I'm so happy right now. :happydance: I didn't know I had won until I checked the news; I thought TNT would send out a neomail informing the winner like how they do with other contests... . Oh well, who cares? :P Here's my dear Magma Ruki Ruarius, who I ended up creating a few months ago when I came back to Neopets. ;) He proved to be spiffier than the others in the neopoint category! :king: Also, here's his current customization with neocash items (click on the image to see it animated on DTI): What do you think, should I keep his current customization or should I reassemble his ''neopoint only'' outfit? :)? ...Now while I'm at it: If you're interested in customizing don't forget to check out the Forum Customization Contest here at TDNF! All entries are submitted through Dress to Impress, so you don't have to worry about not having the neocash and/or neopoints necessary to assemble yours! ;)

    What do you think of the prizes?

    So they just announces the winner of the Obelisk war! Congrats Sway! :thumbsup: I just wanted to start a thread about how many points everyone got and what they are spending their points on the prizes. My pets don't have much battle experience, so I only got 10,051 points ;) I'm fine with that though :D I was able to by a Tyrannian Paint Brush and then 51 of those random keyrings. Anyway, what did you guys get??? This topic has been edited by a member of staff (hrtbrk) because of a violation of the forum rules. There is already a topic for discussing Obelisk War prizes.
