Altador Cup Preseason

The preseason coverage has begun for the Altador Cup!

Over the coming week, new snippets will be added for each of the 18 teams detailing what they have been up to in the offseason. New NC wearables will also be made available for them as they are released. This year's theme is popcorn.

The countdown on the page reveals that signups for the Cup are scheduled to begin next Tuesday, May 23rd.

(Also, stay tuned to Jellyneo during this year's Cup—we'll be running a special event!)

It's amazing how after so many years of mismanagement I still came back to play every year, but after last years cup cause me to leave neopets for good, I don't even feel the pull of wanting to play again. I encourage people to do something else with their summer time than squandering it on a screen for a company that proves time and time again that they just don't care about us.

I know it's probably not going to happen, but I wish they would go back to the old scoring system, instead of making us wait 10 or more seconds to send a score on games like shootout showdown.

I totally know what you mean, though with me it was the opposite. I was so broken from the repetitive, unfulfilling AC that, several years ago, I quit the entire site.

I came back last year for the Advent Calendar, though just for 5 minutes of dailies, and even then, half-heartedly.

I'm passing on the AC this year. I'm too old to throw away my time and health on something so mindless.

(besides, logically, it wouldn't make sense...TNT would never let my favorite team win 2 years in a row)

A Special Event from Jellyneo???

Sounds like there will be some fun here!
That's just what we need to break from The Grind!

Is Herdy going to win the Altador Cup again

Does anyone know when the cup will begin this year?

I hope they make a new NP team sign up prize. We've had the frames for over a decade now.

Woohoo, gooo Maraqua!! Since wins are predetermined anyway, it's about time they push you forward!!

Or.. they just release a rather negative pre-cup press release as they usually do and let you take a place somewhere in the middle. Joy!

It was virtually unplayable for me last year and I did not get past beginner. I was an All Star+ for many seasons, but there was no way I was going to expend the time and effort on trying for that again. My team has been mediocre for years and I sadly don't even have any team spirit left to spur me on anymore.

i think this year im going to be a retired All Star, games just take to much time now

And as expected, the tour press talks smack about Elon Hughlis. Again. As always. How can you expect people to pick a team based on these press releases, when their captain is always talked down upon?

As for the people giving up on All Star.. How did y'all ever manage to get there at all? You must have had oceans of time! Rank 13 is good enough for me..

Still looking for a start date if anyone know.
by absolutejudith on May 18, 2023 2:19 PM NST
Let's go Faerieland Team!!
by aimeemarie1992 on May 19, 2023 5:04 PM NST
We don't know the start date yet
by roshchodesh on May 20, 2023 5:00 AM NST
My guess is that the Cup properly starts next week, so that we have plenty of time to sign up? Monday perhaps? But.. who knows. It's not like they'll properly announce that until after it already started...
