Round 5: The Maddness Continues!

on Wednesday, July 6th 2016 @ 1:26 am EST by Mouseykins

Hello Altador Cup fans! This is Mouseykins for The Daily Neopets here with your round 5 report. Apologies for the delay, we were experiencing some technical difficulties. In the studio we ended up losing all power and it took several days to find the cause. By the time we found where we suspect a Meepit was chewing on the power cables round 5 was over. Those pesky little Meepits may be cute, but they sure can be destructive. Next year I'll be sure to have a pile of food waiting for them, so we can hopefully avoid this mess.

Alabriss Bracket

Island SweepLet's start off with the results for the Alabriss Bracket and this round was an entertaining one and did not disappoint. As this is a finals round, the top six teams have been placed together to battle it out. Our top teams this year are Brightvale, Faerieland, Kiko Lake, Krawk Island, Mystery Island and Tyrannia. In the first match of the round Kiko Lake took on Faerieland with each team taking two wins. The Kiko's snagged Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, allowing the Faerie's to score wins in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Tyrannia and Mystery Island faced off, resulting in a full on sweep by the Natives. Brightvale and Krawk Island dueled with the Pirates looting wins in all three side games.

Our second match of the round looked very much like the first. Mystery Island was up against the fearless Faerie's and were not able to sweep them. Faerieland has been consistently strong this year and are not going down without a fight. The Natives took victory in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, leaving the Faeries to take home Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. Tyrannia stomped Brightvale off the grounds with a sweep! Krawk Island was paired with Kiko Lake and were only able to commandeer a win in Shootout Showdown. This left the Kikos to splash away with Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.

Knockout!During the third match of the round we seen a few surprises. First off, Faerieland knocked Brightvale off the court with a full sweep. With Krawk Island up against Tyrannian, many thought Tyrannia could earn themselves another sweep. Krawk Island was happy to disappoint as they obtained victory in Make Some Noise. The Kikos and Natives faced off, resulting in Kiko Lake stealing Slushie Slinger. That left Mystery Island to be victorious in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown.

Inside the second last match of the round there were more shakeups. Faerieland saw themselves earn a 3-game win over Krawk Island. The Faerie's triumphed in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. They were gracious enough to leave Make Some Noise for the Pirates. Next up, the Fossils and Kiko's entered battle with Kiko Lake taking Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The Fossils were quite shaken over only managing to grab Slushie Slinger. In the final pairing for this match had power-house's Mystery Island and Brightvale duelling. Natives stood strong in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown, leaving Slushie Slinger to the Wizards.

Victorious!Finally the last match of the bracket determines everyone's fate. Up first was Tyrannia and Faerieland. The Fossils shattered Faerieland in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Hoping for a better finale, the Faerie's were rather disheartened over their 1-game win in Slushie Slinger. Our two Island teams each scored a win in two games. Krawk Island walked away with Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, while Mystery Island took over Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. The last match in this bracket saw Kiko Lake sweeping Brightvale out of the water. This bracket was a delight to watch and be a part of as the results unfolded.





---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Minitheus Bracket

Continuing with the Minitheus Bracket we have our middle teams, many of which have been strong since the beginning. Featured in this bracket we have Altador, Darigan Citadel, Lost Desert, Maraqua, Meridell and Shenkuu. The first match held two sweeps! Altador Suns swept the Lost Desert Mummies straight out of the sky. In the second sweep, Darigan Citadel sank Maraqua. Our last pairing had Meridell rise with victories in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. The Ninja’s used their skills to secure a win in Make Some Noise.

Holding StrongAlmost identical results occurred in the second match. This time Meridell gladly swept Lost Desert and Shenkuu triumphed over Maraqua with a sweep of their own. Instead of having 3-1 results, Altador and Darigan Citadel walked away with two wins each. Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown went to the Sun's, leaving the Minions to snag Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.

Day three for this bracket had different results than the previous two pairings. Meridell was against Altador and they didn't give the Suns an easy day. With a win in only Make Some Noise for the Suns, the Knights held strong in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. In the only sweep for the day, the Minions were able to overtake the Ninja's. Maraquan Mermaids were quite unsuccessful against the Lost Desert Mummies, as they only achieved a win in Make Some Noise. This left the door open for the Mummies to be victorious in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown.

Interesting ResultsOn the fourth day the outcome was similar to the first two matches of the round. Gaining some lost ground, Altador swept Maraqua drying them out. Also advancing over lost turf was Shenkuu, who collected a sweep from Lost Desert. Meridell almost secured a sweep, but Darigan Citadel would not let them have it. Being long-time rivals, this match was no different. The Knights retrieved wins in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. This only left Make Some Noise for Darigan Citadel.

Very different results were acquired in the final match of round 5 for this bracket. Our first pairing had Meridell against Maraqua. Once again the Knights were denied a sweep earning themselves a win in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown. Much to their dismay the Mermaids only grabbed Make Some Noise. Secondly a very close match between Altador and Shenkuu, each earning two wins. Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown went to the Suns, which left the Ninja's with Yooyuball and Make Some Noise. In the final pairing, both Lost Desert and Darigan Citadel fought hard, each with two victories. The Mummies brought home victory in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. This left the other two side games of Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise to the Minions.

Snack Time!Now I would like to thank you all for your patience as I deliver this report. There is a lot to get through, but I promise we are almost finished. If you'll excuse me for a few minutes, it's time for a short intermission. During this time please enjoy some of our highlights we've recorded throughout the tournament. We will return in ten minutes.

As Mouseykins exits, the camera feed switches over to the archived footage. Ten minutes later Mouseykins returns to find the monitors flickering.

Meepits!Oh, no not again! These silly Meepits need to find another hobby. Someone please put out some food for these little critters so I can complete my report.

One of the technicians sets out some food and repairs the flickering monitors before giving Mouseykins the all clear.




---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vaeolus Bracket

Well that was interesting, sorry about that! We shall continue with the results from the Vaeolus Bracket. Sadly this bracket holds the bottom teams of the Altador Cup this year. Including haunted Woods, Kreludor, Moltara, Roo Island, Terror Mountain and Virtupets. To start things off we have Kreludor and Moltara. The Moons have had quite the fall from grace this year. During this match Kreludor only won Slushie Slinger, allowing Moltara to scorch them in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. We had the Chillers facing off with the Rooligans and only scored a victory in the main event, leaving all three side games to Roo Island. Virtupets did not surprise us by almost sweeping Haunted Woods. Not giving up without a fight, the Zombies snuck away with a win in Shootout Showdown. With only a small margin of victory, the Robots rolled away with Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.

Small SuccessAnother match showing different results. Beginning with Terror Mountain against Kreludor, each earning themselves two victories. The Chillers iced the Moons in yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, with the Moons floating away with Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. In this next pairing, the Robots once again achieved three wins. This time they were dueling with the Rooligans. Virtupets flew off with Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown, leaving Slushie Slinger to Roo Island. Gaining some ground against Moltara, Haunted Woods almost snuck in a sweep. Moltara proved to be a worthy opponent in Yooyuball with all three side games left to the Zombies.

In the third match of the bracket we had a similar ending. Firstly, Kreludor and Roo Island dueled it out, each winning two games. Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown went to the Moons, while Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise belonged to the Rooligans. Taking Yooyuball, Moltara left the side games to Virtupets. So far the Robots seem to be making up for their losses. Terror Mountain slid off with a 3-game victory in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown, humbly allowing Haunted Woods to take Make Some Noise.

A Sweep!This match contains the first sweep of the round for this bracket! The Terror Mountain Chillers extinguished the flames of the Moltara Magmas with a much needed sweep. Two sweeps almost occurred in the other two matches of the day. Taking on Virtupets, Kreludor soared away with the side games, while Virtupets had a hold of Yooyuball. In the final pairing Roo Island only allowed Haunted Woods to take Shootout Showdown, granting the Rooligans the fun of dancing away with Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise.

Here we are, the final match of the round! Haunted Woods were up against Kreludor for their last match and they did not go down without a fight. They were victorious in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The Moons were under the impression that this matchup would be a cakewalk. They were wrong! Kreludor, however did manage to score a victory in Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger. Our final sweep of the event was Roo Island washing out moltara. In the last pairing of Virtupets with Terror Mountain, each team took two wins. Robots were victorious in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise. Leaving Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown to be taken by the Chillers.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tomorrow we will have our final report for you to celebrate the end of Altador Cup XI. Once again this is Mouseykins for The Daily Neopets, reporting live from our news room. Sleep Well Neopia!

The Only Round 4 Report - Blame the Meepits

on Saturday, June 25th 2016 @ 8:44 am EST by NixtheWatcher


Welcome to The Daily Neopets' Definitely-No-Longer-Daily Report on the Altador Cup! And yes, you may have noticed that we took a week's worth of hiatus. That was for reasons that I cannot disclose, but it involves snow, an Omelette, test papers and tons of Meepits.

While we have been away, Round 4 has come and gone and this segment will be just a recap of the most exciting moments of the last round, and the standouts and the sitdowns that showed up. In addition, we will be giving you a rundown of the three final brackets and all the teams in it!

Rise to FameAnd if we are going to talk about exceptional play, we need to talk about Faerieland. And wow - what a journey it has been for the team. For many years in the Cup, the Faeries were seen as a second-rated team, and to most commentators the Faeries really never had a chance to win. Well, Faerieland has proved them wrong. And they proved it with style. Again and again they had defied all expectations and won, if not outright crushed their opponents.

On the Way to GoldBut the shining moment for the Faeries came during the third day of Round 4, when they faced off against Tyrannia. Up to then, the Tyrannian Fossils were borderline unstoppable as they got win after win - their only real challenge was Krawk Island and even then the Pirates had to settle for a draw. The Faeries seemed like an easy sweep for the Fossils - but they turned it around big time. Out of absolutely nowhere, Faerieland seized the three support games - including SoSD, where they had been unbeaten to deliver Tyrannia's very first defeat. With the wind caught up in their sails and crowds of supporters cheering for them Faerieland, the dark horse of the tournament, may be set to give us the biggest upset in the history of the Cup!

Dance to VictoryAnother team that deserves a mention is Meridell, who had shown a second win and has taken most of the matches in the Alabriss Bracket of Round Four, which landed them the top spot - but they were denied entry by the aforementioned Faerieland by just 1 point. They really need to show great skill to get to the podium this year. And speaking of top bracket, the top 5 teams - Brightvale, Tyrannia, Mystery Island, Krawk Island and Kiko Lake - have remained mostly steady as of late, but once Round 5 starts, expect a free-for-all of epic magnitude.

SurpriseOne team that fell from grace though is Kreludor. The second place finisher from last year are now lounging in the bottom bracket after a multitude of defeats from all angles. Early favorites Maraqua aren't any better as they are now in the last place of the second bracket. Haunted Woods unfortunately are still not doing very well ranking at the bottom. They've had a fall from grace this year and hopefully next year will be better for them. Shakeups and surprises really are the theme of this year's cup.

This is a quick piece, and I'm sorry about that. Round 5 is about to begin and it's sure to be an exciting round! Until then, this is Miko signing off.

Three Days, Three Recaps, One Round... Three

on Monday, June 20th 2016 @ 5:14 pm EST by NixtheWatcher

Ahem... Welcome to The Daily Neopets' No-Longer-Daily Report on the Altador Cup. I'm Miko. As you have probably noticed, there is a little drought of reports on the Altador Cup these few days. This is due to personal issues and the Staff Tests I'm buried under. But to make up for that, I'll be recapping on three days' worth of matches, so let's cut to the chase and go to Day 3 of Round 3!

Into the DustDuring Day 3, there were a few ups and downs, but the status quo for the Alabriss Bracket didn't change too much. Brightvale kicked things into high gear as they slaughtered Moltara in all four games with shocking margins. Lost Desert also kept up their tempo in their match against Terror Mountain, as they won 3 games to keep on pace with the leaders. But Kiko Lake wasn't able to slip past the strong defenses of Shenkuu as the Ninjas forced a tie.

Into the DustMinitheus Bracket started off with a sweep by Faerieland against Virtupets, who were once again introduced to the dustbin. Faerieland has been dealing performances that are more reminiscent of top level teams... Well, showed. Mystery Island continued to see wins as they knocked Meridell in all games except Shootout Showdown. Altador and Roo Island drew each other out in the final match of the bracket, leaving both teams steadily at the middle of the bracket.

In Vaeolus Bracket, Kreludor and Maraqua's recovery were steady but slow - leaving fans of the team with only ties against Darigan Citadel and Krawk Island respectively. And predictably, Tyrannia trounced the Zombies.

TakedownThe next day was more quiet, but that didn't stop surprises from showing their faces. But the tempo of the Alabriss Bracket went on as expected as Brightvale swept, Kiko Lake kept pace and the geological features drew each other out. No- The main action of the day happened at Minitheus Bracket where Meridell swatted away the Faeries in all games expect Slushie Slinger, bringing the Faeries' momentum to a crashing halt. And it wasn't the last trick that the Knights had up their sleeves. The other games went on quite as expected, with a sweep for the Altador Suns and a dominating win for the Mystery Island Natives.

Vaeolus Bracket didn't have any sweeps but there were quite some dominating wins. Darigan Citadel showed great potential in Yooyuball, but that did not extend to the other support games which allowed Krawk Island to clinch the win. Tyrannia was Tyrannia as they trampled past Maraqua. And Kreludor finally got something done - albeit that something was Haunted Woods.

And the final day of Round 3 gave us many many sweeps. Shenkuu and Brightvale trampled past Moltara and Lost Desert respectively; and Terror Mountain melted in the face of Kiko Lake.

Dance to VictoryMinitheus Bracket was once again throwing out surprises as Roo Island danced around Virtupets to win all the support games to take the win. Meridell continued their power charge as they overtook Altador. And though Faerieland's sudden top-tier play managed to bring Mystery Island's win streak to a halt, the Knights' last-second wins forced Faerieland to settle for third. Vaeolus Bracket ended predictably with triple sweeps - Maraqua dried up in the face of the Citadels' minions; Krawk Island swabbed Kreludor off their decks; and the less we talk about the Zombies, the better for them. They are already having a rough enough time this tournament.

Whew! That's three days' worth of games there. So sorry for the delay, dear viewers. But thankfully, my workload is finally letting up, so I'll be manning this wild ride once more as we go into Round 4. Until then, this is Miko signing off. Good Night Neopia!

Party Crashers and Broom Sweepers

on Thursday, June 16th 2016 @ 8:42 am EST by NixtheWatcher

Welcome to the Daily Neopets' Report on the Altador Cup, Round 3! Once again, I'm Miko live in the stands of the Yooyuball Stadium. Some fans are still here, but most have moved outside to celebrate a day where the leaders' momentum came to a much needed halt.

Knockdown to BrightvaleLet's start off with the Alabriss bracket where low-ranking team Lost Desert stunned sports fans and commentators alike as they managed a tie against first placed Brightvale. This came as a surprise for the Wizards as Lost Desert weren't actually in top shape leading up to the match. But a tie is a tie, and better luck next time. The other two matches were swept rather predictably as Shenkuu continued to show strength and Moltara continued to lose it - resulting in an all-out sweep in favor of Shenkuu. Terror Mountain started to slip as Kiko Lake took 3 games and only left Shootout Showdown for the Chillers.

Rise to FameIn the Minitheus Bracket Faerieland continued their rise to glory as they swept all four games from Roo Island. It's another win for these fan favorites and their powerful performance is putting them in arm's reach of the Cup. But Mystery Island is looking to prevent that as they took 3 games against the Altador Suns, with them managing to secure the goal to get Shootout Showdown. Both teams are new to the big leagues, but their hunger is strong. Meridell ended the bracket with a near-sweep of Virtupets.

Victory over Fossils at LastThe Vaeolus Bracket had two pairs of sweeps - Darigan Citadel winning Kreludor and Haunted Woods getting decimated by Maraqua. But the match that excited everyone is the last. Tyrannia finally hit a speed bump in their journey to be the winners as Krawk Island managed to draw them out by winning Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. This however may prove futile as Tyrannia continues to be a dominating force in the bracket. And going back for a while - Maraqua's wins have finally proven that it has climbed out of their funk and are now back in the running for the cup.

Well that's all for today! There were some great games today, and also some predictable ones. Let us all see what comes next. Until next time, this is Miko signing off. Good night Neopia!

Third Round's The Charm!

on Tuesday, June 14th 2016 @ 5:04 pm EST by NixtheWatcher

Hello, and welcome to The Daily Neopets' Daily Report on the Altador Cup. Once again, I'm Miko. Well folks, round 3 has swung into action and there are bound to be some mix ups and shocks this round, if we can trust the opening games. This may well our be the year of the underdogs - but I'd better start on the results before I lose you guys.

Terror Mountain DefrostingThe new Alabriss Bracket started off with a bang as Brightvale and Kiko Lake clashed. The Kikos held strong in Yooyuball but they didn't shine enough in support games, which allowed Brightvale to secure their victory. Once more, Brightvale is on a roll. Lost Desert crushed Moltara into powder in the next match, even with Magma fans rallying cries. And rising stars of the cup Terror Mountain and Shenkuu outplayed each other to a halt. Expect to see more powerful plays from them.

Victorious CelebrationsMinitheus Bracket was thrown into a loop for a few minutes as fan favorite underdogs Faerieland struck Virtupets where it hurts. The Robots managed to create some breathing room by winning Yooyuball but with this win and the last 2 brackets, the Faeries may finally have a chance at the Cup. Mystery Island once again are dancing to the beat as they walloped Meridell in all games except Shootout Showdown. Roo Island seemed to have found a source of energy as they tied Altador in the final game of the match.

Exhausting RoundThis round has the Vaeolus Bracket as the bracket to be watching. It includes five powerhouse teams - and the Haunted Woods. Speaking of them, they still can't come out of their grave as Darigan Citadel sweeped more soil onto it. Maraqua and Krawk Island clashed, with no side coming up with a decisive victory. But just tying the Pirates could be a sign that the Mermaids are back for more. Unlike Kreludor, who got bashed into moondust by Tyrannia, who are starting to look like ACX's Kikos.

Wow! One day and already there are twists and turns in this path. So where will this path take us next? Well, you just have to wait to find out. This is Miko signing off. Good Night Neopia!

Another Down - Brooms and a Groundhog end the Second Round

on Monday, June 13th 2016 @ 11:51 am EST by NixtheWatcher


Welcome to TDN's Daily Report on the Altador Cup and finally we are at the end of Round 2! I'm Miko, live from the TDN Sports Center. It's been a wild ride of ups and downs this past week and finally it's over. But this is just the second stop of the park. We've got quite a few to go through today, so let's get it started!

Confused YooyusWe start off with some confusion, courtesy of the Alabriss Bracket. A scheduling mishap caused all the teams of the bracket to play against the same opponents as last time. Fans were left scratching their heads at this - and more than one report has surfaced of fans ending up in the wrong match site. We tried to contact the ACC for a comment but it's radio silence on their end.

Sweeping CelebrationsBut the teams took it with stride and played nevertheless. First in the bracket was Brightvale and Mystery Island, with the Wizards taking the broom to the Robots. With Krawk Island and Terror Mountain, Krawk Island swept them aside. And finally Mystery Island easily out performed Haunted Woods. So yes, the results were the same as last time's.

Maraqua on the MoveMoving onto a bracket that isn't in a Groundhog Day loop, the Shenkuu Ninjas ended the bracket in strength as they ran circles around the Moons and trashed them in all four games. Things aren't looking up for the Moons, and many are asking where has the former powerhouse gone to. Faerieland continued their path to a possible victory as they won all the support games and lost to Lost Desert by the slimmest of margins in Yooyuball. And it may be high noon - I mean high tide for Maraqua again as the Mermaids seemed to have shaken off most of the seaweed clogging them up to deliver a crushing victory over Altador, just missing out on a sweep by on goal scores in Yooyuball.

Meridell vs. RivalsThe Minitheus Bracket had some unexpected wins, but yet again Tyrannia bowls over another team - Kiko Lake - to mark their second straight round win-streak of the Cup. Arch-rivals Darigan Citadel and Meridell were up next and the Knights were deemed victorious by the scores - although Minions' fans were saying otherwise, judging by their win in Make Some Noise. Once again Moltara is in its worst shape in many years as they were handily defeated by the Roo Island Rooligans. They'd better stoke the flames again if they want to have a good finish this round.

And that's the end of Round 2 people! Tune in next time for some Round 3 action, for it may well be another bumpy ride. From everyone here, this is Miko of TDM signing off. Good Night Neopia!

Do you want an order of sweeps with that?

on Sunday, June 12th 2016 @ 7:51 am EST by NixtheWatcher

Welcome to the The Daily Neopets' Daily Report on the Altador Cup! I'm Miko, reporting from TDN HQ. Once again, sorry for being late - I had to take another chapter of the Staff Entrance Exams, and it didn't help that the ACRC suddenly popped up halfway to ask me about my interviews and to check if I had the plague...

Abundant SweepsBut enough about me and my troubles, let's jump back to the Altador Cup! Today was a day of dominations and demolishment, so let's start off at the Alabriss Bracket, where sweeps were being served like slushies. Mystery Island tore apart Haunted Woods handily in the first match of the bracket, leaving the fate of the Zombies very grim. A second last-place round finish seems imminent for Haunted Woods and if they want to be anywhere near the Cup, they need to work overtime.

Victory for Krawk IslandBrightvale continued to stand strong as the Virtupets were once again smashed back to earth. They currently have a chokehold on the lead in the bracket, but Mystery Island and Krawk Island are looking eager to snatch it. And speaking of Krawk Island, the Pirates easily took out Terror Mountain in the last match. The Chillers' performance seems to be waxing and waning randomly, and as I said before consistency is more important in the Cup than once-over performances.

Altador ShiningAnd speaking of consistency, Kreludor of the Minitheus Bracket is another team that is not showing any of that. Despite being one of the best teams of Round 1, the Moons are having trouble staying in orbit. There was a glimmer of hope at yesterday's win (not sweep) against Faerieland, but that glimmer was snuffed out as the Altador Suns eclipsed them, leaving Kreludor on the dark side of hope once more. In the other matches, Faerieland picked up the pieces from yesterday's loss to outplay Shenkuu, winning all games except Make Some Noise, where the dark horse team had an advantage. And things are still looking bad for Maraqua as their fall from first to last continues, this time against Lost Desert.

Rooligans' on a RollIn the Vaeolus Bracket, Tyrannia were as predictable as ever, sweeping Meridell despite resistance from the Knights' side. Darigan Citadel continues to stay in form as they put Moltara's fire out. The Magmas' cooling seems to have no end unfortunately. And Kiko Lake are looking as strong as before, though their loss in Slushie Slinger gave Roo Island's Rooligans some hope. After all, this was the Nearly Unbeatable Team last year, so teams are happy to take a win, however small.

That's all for today, and tomorrow's the last day of Round 2 so stick with TDN for the reports on that. I might be late again, but who knows? Until then this is Miko signing off. Good night Neopia.
