  1. I went with the Sway, LOVE Bank Bribery. lol The boons for the Thieves and the Brute Squad really aren't useful for me anyway. The guild I'm in is going with The Sway as well. Though we're a small guild these days. lol Good luck to all fighters!
  2. Thank you both, @Secre and @jellysundae! I'll just say it's way out of my price-range, which it is. lol I'm trying to save up for some new battledome gear, and even if I had 35 mil, I wouldn't blow it on a TCG card like that. Thanks again for the advice!
  3. Someone messaged me out of the blue on Neopets, asking if I'd like to buy his Island Peophin (TCG) card. JN has no price on it, and there isn't another one listed in trades, SSW, or Auctions. He wants 35mil for it. I'm not going to agree, not at that price. But it would be NICE to have a pricing idea of what the TCG card is actually worth. I might be able to counter his offer with a more reasonable amount. But most likely, I'll wait until I start working more on my Peophin gallery. Which has been on a hiatus for quite a while now. lol Another thing that make me a LITTLE suspicious about his asking price, is that his account is only 3 months old, and he's got some message in his profile about wanting his accounts freed. He's also got a number of rare items up for Trade on the trading post. I mean, ranging in the 3-20mil NP, EACH. Not for any one lot. Including a Wand of the Dark Faerie, no price asked just "mail offers". Which I'm also surprised to see, for such a "young" account. Thanks in advance for any info regarding the asking price and real value of the TCG and such!
  4. I'd say I've picked fairly decently this year, not my best, but not bad. I too would like to know why some of the returning players aren't at their usual top of their game this year. lol Also, I've picked players who have been selected for the star-player, they've been on my team, but I picked OTHER players as the star player instead. I still don't get how Ehlo Froyo had that massive score in week 1, but was not the Star Player. Sure would like to know HOW TNT picks their star players if not highest points earned by that player! Anyway, my total score is 23265 right now, and that's not too shabby! Even though I've got a number of new-players on my roster. They've done pretty well for their rookie year. Good luck to everyone with your final picks for the Staff Tourney!
  5. lol Actually, he's usually in 3rd or 4th place, at least in recent years. I check out the leaderboard for GPG multiple times, every AC.
  6. Hey guys, So over the course of this AC. I've seen people mention a bit about how they play, or where they don't know how some players play with either the mouse, or the keyboard. If you're used to one, chances are it's because the other is more difficult for you. Also, if you feel like it, feel free to share tips and strategies for how you play, it might help others who aren't as experienced get some ideas that might boost their playing levels a bit. I have trouble playing with the mouse, so I'm a steadfast keyboard player for YYB. I prefer playing Right to Left, and in 1-3 formation. Sure the fingers might slip with the keys at some times, but overall I find it more stable for me to control the characters. That being said, the glitches in the game, such as a scrolling jump, and where sometimes your character with the Yooyu walks without you even touching the controls, as though it's not reading the control-input, both have happened a couple of times this year, and I tend to see issues like that a couple of times each AC when I'm playing. For the keyboard though, it's important to keep the mouse cursor off of the borders of the flash game area. Otherwise it can kind of interfere, like the game doesn't know which input to read. That's my speculation based on past experiences. Since this got a bit long, I'm playing the following tips under spoiler tags. Regarding the first 4-6 yooyus. Speed in scoring. Maximizing limited time per goals. The dreaded Darigan Yooyu. Guess that's it for now. One other thing to keep in mind, is that the no matter who scores a goal, when the next yooyu appears, 8 seconds will have been deducted from the play-clock. This happens after EVERY goal. So, if you score high, your game time goes by more quickly, which means you can get more games in more quickly. Great if you're working with time constraints of some sort. With Neopets Mobile being in the BETA, perhaps some time, maybe even next year, MAYBE TNT will have a way for mobile devices to play YYB for the AC? That might be fun,. and could be a good possibility for some who don't like to play with keyboard OR mouse. Just speculation on my part. I hope some of this is helpful, maybe get some of those brain-juices flowing and looking for routes that you too can use to improve your game and overall Yooyu-balling ability. ;D
  7. Am I the only one who is annoyed about 2 days off from competitive play? It's one LESS day to try and gain prize points and ranks. Another reason to be frustrated with TNT's decision in recent years to end personal rank-increases on bye-days. >_>
  8. Right, I find it best to play YYB kind of like, golf. I can't and don't care to play golf, but like when you swing the club, you need good follow-through. That can help set you up in case the yooyu is intercepted or misses it's target. I've had a few really good volleys between my team and the opposing ones. Sure they ate up time, but it actually felt like playing a GAME instead of just dominating the field. lol I find that if you keep moving after shooting, keeping those things in mind, that it can be quite helpful if the unforeseen happens. Ah, I'm a gemini, but as far as elements go, water is probably the most versatile, and pretty cool to-boot. I don't understand why water-species aren't automatically considered "Maraquan", but since I'm a huge peophin fan, I went with the water-team. lol Though this is the worst I've seen them rank (so far), since I ended my last hiatus from Neopets. About 2012 or so. Before then, they weren't highly ranked either. Ah well. I've never been in the champion team, but it's fun to try and see how far the team goes.
  9. Nice goal-count! XD The center is usually the lead in many sports where that position exists. But in a 3-1 formation, he can get the yooyu first and pass it either to his right or left. So he/she doesn't necessarily HAVE to be the top goal-gainer. I've seen some where all 4 players have a pretty even amount of scores. Since I use 1-3, Elon of course, is my top scorer. It's simpler just to post my stats as of tonight to show that. lol I'm only JUST Rank 11, but in years where I've used the other formations, 2-2 and 3-1, My other players had much more goals scored than they do since I decided to stick with 1-3. Yooyuball Goals Scored 3,832 Goals by Elon "The Black Hole" Hughlis 3,296 Goals by Oten Runeu 167 Goals by Lamelle Turow 170 Goals by Barit Jowes 199 Saves by Tonie Plessix 229 Number of Wins 298 Number of Draws 0 Number of Losses 0 Checking my last post here, it seems my GPG average has increased a bit. As of tonight it's 12.85906040268456. Even hit my 3rd score of 17-0 this year! I had a few 15s and 16s too, but I gotta say, Terror Mountain's team this round did a pretty good job. There were 2 games where they actually scored twice, though one I helped with a Darigan in my own net, just to save some time on the clock because it was the 2nd yooyu. TM is the 2nd team, I think to accomplish that this year. And their goalie was WAY more on the ball, pardon the pun, than Tonie Plessix is/was! Oh, and I haven't been counting, but I'm estimating I've had a darigan yooyu show up at LEAST some number over 1 dozen times as the 10th yooyu of the game! I mean the score is 9-0 and the next yooyu is darigan, and has been MANY times this year. Fortunately, I'm still managed to get it in A net. So I'm still at all games being 10 goals or higher. I'm pushing myself to keep trying to see if it's humanly possible to reach 18 goals. My score of 17 tonight was nice, but it wasn't perfect. I had NO time to try for an 18th point when that round began. lol I'd need 3-4 seconds on the clock to even have a chance.
  10. Congrats to the new All-stars! XD I hit Rank 11 tonight! LOL Funny story though, my 3rd game tonight was my 3rd score of 17-0 this year, on top of which I got double the 1000np thanks to my Space Faerie Charm. lol Just a fun little random, coincidental happenings tonight. ;D Managed 28 games before midnight NST. I don't know how people have time to max out on one, letalone most of the AC games each day. LOL Congrats again guys on reaching All-star! XD
  11. I'd like to know how Ehlo Froyo got such a HIGH score and was NOT the Star Player? I had Miss Rainbow on my team, but she only had like, 1000ish points or so. Raven did terribly, so I've replaced her and Decided to trade out Senor Malo, because he did the 3rd worst on my 1st picks. I decided to keep Miss Rainbow since she was star player for week 1. She might improve in week 2, we'll see. My team is Gutterfoot, Miss Rainbow, Scrappy and KikoCat, with Ehlo Froyo, once again as my goalie. My points awarded for week 1 were 8665. Not too bad!
  12. I didn't really get much chance to play yesterday, or today for that matter. Just got done with my 24th game to get me to 220 games of YYB finished. Good enough to just barely earn Rank 9. Here are my current stats. Yooyuball Goals Scored 2,811 Goals by Elon "The Black Hole" Hughlis 2,413 Goals by Oten Runeu 123 Goals by Lamelle Turow 125 Goals by Barit Jowes 150 Saves by Tonie Plessix 166 Number of Wins 220 Number of Draws 0 Number of Losses 0 Goals per game average is 12.77727272727273 (Thanks to the handy-dandy calculator program that comes with Windows for those decimals. lol) Managed my 2nd 17-0 game tonight of this year. I usually can get about half a dozen or less of those in an AC. Still close but no luck on an 18-0 game. lol That's my chief personal goal in even playing YYB, though being able to get a decent weapon and stamp from the prize shop are close seconds. But even those "goals", aren't enough to keep me playing every day the solid few hours it takes to cap-out on YYB. lol I'm probably done with YYB for the night as I've got an appointment tomorrow. Gotta say, seeing Maraqua being much farther back in the ranks than it's usual range is also kind of demotivating. But hey, the team fights on, though I wish TNT'd stop giving Elon Hughlis this smarmy attitude of being a cocky yooyu-hog. It's getting REALLY old. Sure, he scores the OVERWHELMING amount of points compared to his teammates when I play, but that's because he's out front in the 1-3 format. If I went with 2-2 or 3-1 the others would have more opportunities to score. (Which I HAVE used in previous years). IF the AI for the OTHER members of the team, without the Yooyu, is EVER given that brain-increase they need, maybe I would play with one of those other formations. But, honestly, even as defenders they are RARELY where I need them, hence why our near-joke of a goalie has 166 saves for me this year. I've been wanting to trade him for YEARS for someone better, maybe Kiko Lake's peophin? Having a Peophin on the team would be awesome! Meh, don't mind me, tired-rambling. LOL
  13. Hey congrats! Maybe you can get to 16 or even 17 this year?! HOW awesome would that be?! How's your GPG average going? I'll bet it's gone up quite a bit since you started this thread when you got your first 14-0 game.
  14. CONGRATS ON RANK 1 Duma! I guess it's the tempo of the games. Yooyuball has a pretty even speed, whether you're starting out or have scored a lot, it's pretty quick-paced. SS starts off a bit slow for my liking, and then stays at what I feel comfortable with for only a short period, a moderate speed, but then suddenly, it gets really hectic. lol Although if I WERE to play any support game that'd be my first choice. After all, Apart from YYB, it's the first game I'm aware of to have Peophins in it, even if they are only angry, thirsty customers. lol The others, MSN, is like Tug-o-war, I can go fast for only just so long before my fingers and wrist(s) start to get stiff and/or sore. SOSD, I have 2 things I don't care about playing it. You have to do an insane amount of games to equal the same points in YYB, and I really am not a Chia-fan. Never have been, doubt I ever will be. I've played the support games in years passed, but, meh. lol YYB is the only game that really works for me on a constant basis, even when it does get tedious, it's less-so, imho, than the support games. I know people can get to all-star without ever touching YYB, and doing it honestly through the support games. No shade to them. Just not really my cup o' tea.
  15. Likewise. I simply have just felt demotivated the last couple of days. I'll try to get some more games in tonight, but I'm not really feeling it right now. My current stats... Yooyuball Rank 7 Goals Scored 2,061 Goals by Elon "The Black Hole" Hughlis 1,791 Goals by Oten Runeu 85 Goals by Lamelle Turow 86 Goals by Barit Jowes 99 Saves by Tonie Plessix 93 Number of Wins 160
