Altador Cup XIII Begins!

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm not looking at the right place, but do they have details on how many times you can play each game and when the Staff Dream Team is going to be up?

You can play as many games as you want per day, though you stop earning np after 3.  You move up the ranks by playing more games and at the end of the cup, you get points to spend in the prize shop based on your rank.  So, limiting the number of games you can play would mean everybody would stay at rank 2 or something.

Ohhh, I got it.  I think.  So basically I just need to figure out how many points it'll take to get the highest rank, play my three a day, and add in extra time to play for rank points?  I can do that!

 

Edit:  Omg, I'm DYING!  I adore the bit when they cut to the grarl and ixi in the box, and they're both cheering!  It's adorbs!

Yeah that's super-cute, isn't it. :D

I also like where they show the Yooyu's in the pen waiting and the robot one's doing The Robot dance. xD

I'm with Lost Desert as usual, but I'm still not sure if I'm going to take part this year. I didn't last year. I'm still exhausted from the last time I played.. Whenever that was, lol!

Good luck everyone!

If you look on the Staff Tournament page, it begins June 8th :smile:

 

Maybe one of these years I'll stop being lazy and get more than Rank 1, but it just seems like waaaaaaay too much work to get even close to All-Star

Actually, there is a limit to how many games you can play each day:

46 games of YYB
86 games of SLSL
401 games of SOSD
401 games of MaSN

Playing more games than this won't count towards your rank at all. Check out this thread by @fishstick013, it also includes the minimum scores you need to get for the games to count, and the links to low resolution versions of the games.

(Also, just as a reminder, the highest offical rank (All-Star) usually isn't enough to get all the best prizes. You'd need to make All-Star 3 times over to get those.)

lol You've already played so many games of Shootout Showdown, wow!

My contributions to Maraqua so far are just 2 games of Yooyuball... it's been busy today IRL. LOL But I'm starting out strong, with scores of 13-1 and 15-0 for those first two games. Man I wish we got some prize points for scores. I think it would inspire and incentivize people to get better instead of some who simply go for a couple of points so their game counts.

I'm grateful for the low-quality links to the games, because I was getting a bit of lag when I played my first game of YYB, hence how they got the yooyu at all. lol

REMINDER! Do NOT open multiple tabs to play AC games and submit scores! It could keep you from advancing in rank. This happened with last year's AC and could possibly happen this year, too. Only open one tab and play AC games. If you are playing Yooyuball and wish to change to Make Some Noise (MSN), click on the MSN game link, below the Yooyuball game or vice versa. Keep it to one tab. Here is a Neopian Times Editorial from last year:

Quote

If flagged users are unable to advance to the next rank while playing in the Altador Cup, how are users who've already achieved all-star rank supposed to know whether they've been flagged if they are no longer advancing in rank anyway?

I'm glad this question came up because there have been many worries about something like this. So, there is a message that will show up if you have been flagged that looks like this: Your account is marked for suspicious activity and will not be able to actively rank up. If you feel that you've been wrongly affected by this, you are welcome to write into our team for further clarification. Thank you!
Also, there has been some modifications to the standings page which will make the day-to-day changes much more clear!

ref: Neopian Times Editorial, Issue: 785, 9th day of Relaxing, Y19 - http://www.neopets.com/ntimes/index.phtml?section=editorial&week=785

You can use a separate tab to do other stuff on Neopets. Good luck all, with AC XIII!

It's a shame that there isn't an on-screen notification once you hit max games, isn't it. Them just no longer adding to your game count can be pretty easy to miss.

Yes, I know, and that's very easy to miss. I'm talking about a pop-up telling you you're wasting your time now, basically. lol.

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that when you get the larger net power up, it seems like more times than not, the other team gets the yooyu and scores? I am not getting that dang power up anymore, lol.  When I do, my team runs around like morons and nobody will grab the ball, they always get it snatched away, they always skid past where I want them to stop, and it is mostly when the large net is open.  It has to programmed to make it more difficult for us when the net is opened up.  LOL.  IDK, maybe I am just more conscious of it at that time.

This page has up to rank 19, I think?  Is that the actual top, or do I need to triple that?

All-Star is probably Rank 20, but yeah, you'd need to triple that. The numbered levels stop at 19, but if you look at the 'Select target rank' bit, you'll see you can also select 'Double All-Star', 'Triple All-Star' and 'Quad All-Star' - these are the ranks you should aim for if you really want all the top prizes, but honestly, it's a lot of work. I only made (regular) All-Star once, and that took so much time. I have no idea how anyone who makes double, triple or quad All-Star does it.

Lol, I had noticed that lately, so you might be right. Or maybe we just hate wasting a power-up, so this is the ball-stealing moment we remember. 😛
