  2. Hey all! Sara or Miarka here! I've been managing the FLUFF website for some 4 years or so on my old main, sara_tiara_relica but since I've stepped down from the council, I've been trying to get someone to take over and Kaylan (Kaylan_fashion) had volunteered to help and we've now moved from http://www.neopets.com/~Mahala_Lynn to http://www.neopets.com/~FLUFFwebbie I would like to redirect the link as always from Mahala_Lynn but unfortunately someone had broken into that account and changed the password (I even got a warning for using multiple accounts to gain Neopoints despite not logging into any of my sides for some months) and TNT hasn't responded to my ticket I sent nearly 4 months ago but since I'm leaving Neopets in a few days, I've given up on trying to work that out. If one of you wonderful staffers on the site could switch it on TDN's AC coverage's FL team page, that would be really cool too :) Kaylan had done a terrific job in giving the page a fresh new look so go check it out. Thanks everyone and good luck with the cup! Hope nobody gets undeservedly frozen this year and don't forget to have fun. ~Sara/Miarka/Tiara/Dacy (lol)
  3. It's that time again, people! So, sit on down and get settled, grab some popcorn and your 4D goggles, and get ready for the AC X report! This is Brooke, reporting from The Daily Neopets' studio. The whole team is back and ready to give you the facts. Onward, to the Alabracket! Faerieland started us off today with an impressive (for them) showing against the Lost Desert. The Mummies have stood tall against all but the strongest, top-tier teams this year, and they showed their prowess in Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. But when it came to the Yooyuball field, the Faeries gave them a run for their money, forcing a draw. Spurred by this encouraging result, the Faeries went on to snatch a surprising win in the slushie tents! This is their first win and best overall day of the bracket so far. Next up, the Chillers and the Pirates clashed on the field. The brooms were back, if in smaller number, as Terror Mountain quite thoroughly swept Krawk Island with reckless abandon! The Chillers have been rather quiet this year, but they've also kind of been kicking butt, and currently sit in fifth place, tantalizingly close to a coveted podium spot. The Pirates, meanwhile, are tied with the Darigan Citadel in eighth, which is a really weird word to see in print. Closing out the Alabriss bracket was the match between Mystery Island and Meridell. The fans of the Knights ran roughshod over those of the Natives, winning Make Some Noise by a landslide. They took Slushie Slinger as well, but were less fortunate in the remaining two events, where the Natives pulled off a tie in each. Annnd that's it for the Alabriss bracket! I'll turn things over to Midtime for the Minitheus. How are things with you, Midtime? [Midtime smiles politely, then holds the smile rigid for a few seconds, apparently panicking.] Um, yes! That is to say, perfectly sanguine. Quite lackadaisical. Ahem. Let us then wend our way into the scintillatingly discombobulated Minitheus parenthesis. The matches hereto have not been to floccinaucinihilipilificate at, and these are no different! They have been infernal - incinerating - highly diabatic! Oyez! The news to be anon delivered will have all the discombobulating impact of an iron stang or miraculously acierated newspaper roll! It will be more than copacetic, the antipode of defenestrable, positively individual! It will be as remarkable as the name of the famous hill Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaur- wait. Did I use 'discombobulate' twice? I think I did! Twice in three sentences, no less. Good grief. Expanding my vocabulary isn't as useful as I thought it would be. Recovering gracefully from their eclipse at the hands of Team Kreludor, the Suns controlled the Yooyuball field today to great effect, beating the Magmas twofold in the main event, and claiming the shootouts for themselves as well. Moltara's accomplishments were all in the grandstand: the turnout among their supporters was extraordinary, carrying them to victory in the cheering and slushie categories. The captains of the two teams, Remis and Beign, exchanged cordial greetings during the post-match formalities, a sharp contrast to the tension of the game itself. Although it would of course be intrusive to pry into their personal affairs without a professional hand involved, it is well-known that they are quite closely acquainted, having been seen with each other several evenings in the days leading up to the Cup; that they have a common interest in hair styling, which they engage in together at least every other month; that Beign has a rice husk stuck just behind his left canine, not visible to frontal photographs; and that both of them share a mysterious aversion to visible surveillance cameras, at least when they are - oh, I'm rambling! I'd better not do that; the last time it happened my supervisor picked up my bugging remote from my jacket pocket, dropped it on the floor, and ground it thoroughly to pieces with the point of their heel in a most unfortunate bout of absent-mindedness. I can't seem to get my hands on a replacement. On to the next matchup, then! The Zombies were faced with another rough match today: the Moons, as light on their feet as always, withheld no display of prowess against them, and try as they might, the Woods team stood little chance. Fans of the Moons have been far more than excited this year to see their favourites climbing back to the top - something which their extraordinary Make Some Noise score might well attest to - and if they continue with these sweeps, they may yet see an opportunity to close that three-point gap and claim first place from the powerhouse that is Kiko Lake. The Zombies, in the meantime, would be the last to resign themselves to the legendary Cup Curse. As captain Krell Vitor said to interviewers after today's match ended, "You're ignoring one fact: we have fought through this before. This time we will be faster." The Fossils, not to be outdone by the team that battled them to a perfect draw at the beginning of this round, put a neat stop to the Robots' promising Round Four record with yet another devastating sweep. This is a heavy blow for the Robots, who have been striving to climb out of the lower half of the rankings as the final week of the season approaches - but then, they are no strangers to heavy blows. Perhaps they will rebound tomorrow; perhaps their finishing place will be something to cheer about, after all. With the Minitheus bracket outcomes of the day thus tintinnabulated, or at least tabulated, it is about the proper time to put you through to Matt for the concluding set of results. Matt? [The feed switches to Matt, but only after about a quarter of a minute. He is already talking when it does.] -fter their rude wake up call in the match against Brightvale, the Kikos took no guff as they showed spectators that they are determined to win this year's Cup. The Kikos have dropped the playful attitude and unfortunately, the Rooligans were on the receiving end of this beatdown today. The Rooligans' push in Yooyuball was not enough today as the Kikos dominated all of the games with wide gaps. With only a few more days until the fourth round ends, the Kikos will be looking to solidify their position as the frontrunner to win the tournament. Brightvale produced results yet again in today's matchup against the Ninjas. Although the Ninjas gave their best effort, they couldn't prevent the Wizards from sweeping them. The Wizards have been doing well in the fourth bracket, stopping the Kikos' winning streak while also defeating the Ninjas and the Mermaids. It's a surprise to many that the Wizards are still ranked sixth place in the bracket despite accomplishing these amazing feats. Brightvale only has one more day before the bracket ends. Will they be able to make a push to rise in the rankings? Wrapping up the results of the Vaeolus Bracket today, the battle between sky and sea ended in an overwhelming victory for the Mermaids. Although the Minions fought valiantly, the Mermaids proved they had the superior yooyu-slinging skills and fan base in today's matchup taking victories in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. The Minions were barely able to escape a sweep by drawing with the Mermaids in Slushie Slinger. Will the Mermaids be able to overtake the Minions in the bracket standings? Now let's move on to our interesting matches for the day. Darigan Citadel and Brightvale will be facing off against each other for the first time in this year's Cup. It is sure to be a close one as both teams are expected to take victories in two games apiece! The Wizards were able to end the Kikos' winning streak. Will they continue to surprise spectators? Matches between the underdogs of the tournament will be occurring in today's matches. Faerieland and Mystery Island as well as Haunted Woods and Moltara will all be fighting to rise from the bottom of the pack. Mystery Island and Moltara are predicted to win in their respective matchups, but will the unwavering spirit of the Faeries and the Zombies be enough to overcome these two teams? In our last matchup, the surprising upper tier teams of this tournament will be going head to head today as well. Both Lost Desert and Terror Mountain tied for thirteenth place in last year's Cup, and now they have a fighting chance to be on the podium. Although Terror Mountain is predicted to win the overall match, the Mummies will definitely put up a strong fight. That wraps up today's report! We'll see you all tomorrow for the final results of the fourth round! This is Matt, signing off.

  4. Midtime's back! And if that isn't the most joyous greeting you've ever heard, I don't know what to tell you. Anyway, this is Brooke, reporting for The Daily Neopets, where we have the best comprehensive Altador Cup coverage, the most interesting disasters, and fabulous hair. Now quickly, before anything strange happens, (besides basically everything Midtime does ever), let's get the results out! The Alabriss bracket started off with a fascinating match between Maraqua and Meridell. Both teams have been performing in consistent fashion all year, and it came as no surprise that the results were fairly well split. The Mermaids cheered the loudest and shot-out the show-downiest by a small margin, but the Knights slammed them on the Yooyuball field and at the slushie bar. Perhaps Maraqua will gain the encouragement they crave from their match with Faerieland tomorrow? Fans of the Faeries were spotted rejoicing in the streets today following the epic success of their second match against the Zombies. For the first time all year, Faerieland took three of the four events. The Haunted Woods stole away their chance for a sweep by forcing a draw in Shootout Showdown, but the absence of red in the Faeries' results box was still cause for great celebration. The Zombies have come a long way from their championship win in the first Cup, but their determination is unflagging. It looks like Tyrannia is poised to perform a complete sweep on another round. Today in their match against Roo Island, the Fossils were in top form, outstripping the Rooligans at every turn. A little disheartened by a devastating loss so soon after their sweep against Maraqua yesterday, the Rooligans shared a sympathy slushie or seven following the match. That's it for the Alabracket! Let's turn things over to everyone's favourite eccentric, Midtime! [The camera focuses on Midtime, who hurriedly hides a pencil which they have been using to doodle a detailed photorealistic picture on their prompt sheet. The picture is of a cephalopod wholly concealed in a cloud of black ink at the bottom of the ocean. It therefore resembles a solid square of thick black scribble lines.] Thank you, Brooke! I apologise for my absence yesterday; I had to attend an unscheduled review session with my supervisor. On an unrelated note, though an important one, I feel that in view of the contents of a recent news report, it is my solemn duty to remind you that the use of dynamite or other industrial explosives is neither safe nor efficient nor recommended in any office conditions: it may easily result in bodily injury, death, or the loss of my - of one's job on grounds of gross irresponsibility, along with a severe reduction in future hiring prospects. Now, to our regular content. The Minitheus bracket has seen some fascinating pushes from its underdog teams! Let's see what they have managed to do. Lost Desert fans must have been somewhat surprised to find their team had come out of a match without either sweeping or being swept. The Mummies' match with Brightvale seemed quite one-sided from an outside perspective: the scoreboard favoured them by a factor of two, their fans all but deafened on-site reporters with their fervour, and their slushie mix was truly memorable (in this I speak from experience). But, as it turns out, Brightvale forward Kayn Hireck absolutely excelled in the shootouts, decisively claiming that section of the match for his team. Although the Mummies have proven themselves to be no pushovers, Hireck's performance has set a new record for the Wizards, and shown the world once again that every team has the potential to climb to the top. The Krawk Island Pirates almost succumbed to the Robots' fierce new strategy, only reorganising in the final third of the game to make a comeback that just barely brought them to victory. Virtupets' exemplary play won them the shootouts, and their fans in turn dominated the stadium; despite having won the match overall, the Pirates would have been side-swept, if not for a draw in the slushie category. This has certainly been a match for both teams to remember. Last, the Altador Suns put on a truly impressive showing today - or so I earnestly presume! Unfortunately for them, their opponents for the match were Kiko Lake. These have been the Minitheus bracket results! I'll pass you on to Matt for the Vaeolus. [Just before the camera switches to Matt, some one can be seen striding into view with a rolled-up newspaper in hand.] Thank you, Midtime. Try not to blow anything up while I'm gone, I would like to have a studio to come back to when I return. Moving on, I have the results of the Vaeolus Bracket like usual so let's get right to it! The Chillers and the Moons had their way with Moltara and Shenkuu respectively in today's matches as the frontrunners of the bracket dominated the underdogs, sweeping both teams with relative ease. Although the Magmas performed excellently in Yooyuball and Make Some Noise, it was not enough as the Chillers were able to shut the Magmas down. With the third round coming to a close very soon, both Kreludor and Terror Mountain will be hoping to lock down their bracket positions to prevent a last minute push from the Minions. While we're on the topic of Darigan Citadel, their rematch against Mystery Island proved to be disasterous. The Minions were hoping for another sweep after the excellent results from the day before, however, the Natives were able to shatter the Minions' hopes with excellent victories in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. The Natives' yooyu-slinging skills were right on the mark today as they were able to defeat the Minions in a close match. The Minions were able to redeem themselves with victories in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise, but the Natives were able to celebrate today as they took the overall victory. Fans of the Natives were rejoicing today, and with a matchup against Moltara tomorrow, the Natives will be hoping to keep up this great momentum. For our matches to watch! We have many rematches occurring today ranging from Altador and Krawk Island, Tyrannia and Meridell, to Shenkuu and Terror Mountain. Also, the matchup between underdog teams Mystery Island and Moltara will be a close one as both teams will be fighting to gain an advantage in today's match. The Natives are predicted to take the overall victory, but will the Magmas be able to rally together to defeat the Natives? For our last matchup of the day, spectators will be interested in the match between Lost Desert and Kiko Lake. The Mummies have the potential to end the Kikos' winning streak if they focus their efforts towards Yooyuball. Will the Mummies be able to finally put a stop to the Kikos' reign? That wraps up today's daily report! This is Matt signing off.

  5. Hello, friends! Brooke's back, reporting for The Daily Neopets! I hope you are all feeling well-rested after the bye day, because here's where Yooyuing gets serious. [The lights in the studio flicker, then go out.] Uh... guys? I appreciate the dramatic effect, but... can we not? I can't see my notes. [There is some scuffling from the darkness, then a light blossoms onscreen. Someone has affixed a head-lamp to Brooke's head.] Ooookay, I guess I'll just try to avoid looking directly into the camera, then, shall I? It would appear, dear viewers, that the overhead light has burned out. And the part of the budget that was set aside for replacement bulbs was spent on... tin foil, apparently. So. Let's get started with Round Three! The new Alabriss bracket kicked off with a sweep - surprise, surprise. Maraqua went up against top-tier team Tyrannia as the round started. The Fossils dominated the Mermaids in every event, getting things off to a rocky start for Elon Hughlis's confident players. This victory probably came as no surprise to anyone as Tyrannia managed to sweep the entire bracket last round. Looks like they stand a chance at the podium again this year! Next up, Meridell took on the significantly creepier team from the Haunted Woods, in what proved to be a brutal near-sweep. The Knights have only achieved two sweeps this year, and today's results were tantalizingly close. The Zombies gathered their full strength in Shootout Showdown and forced a draw, snatching the sweep away from the Knights. This is only the second time the Haunted Woods have avoided a loss in that particular event. For the last match of the bracket, the Faeries and the Rooligans clashed on the field of battle. Faerieland put all their efforts into Yooyuball and Slushie Slinger, making some impressive strides in both events. In the other two events, however, they fell quite short, and were annihilated by Roo Island. Any word on those lights, guys? I'm starting to get a headache. I think this band is too tight. No? Well, boo. I guess I'd better get on with it. The Minitheus Bracket started out the third round with some very interesting matchups. The first match was between Virtupets and Kiko Lake. The Kikos have taken ACX by storm, earning a sweep every single day, and today was no different. They soundly swept the Robots, who've been swept half of the time this year. It would appear the Kikos are headed straight for the top, barring any unforeseen upsets! The Pirates and the Wizards took the field next, and the Pirates found themselves narrowly escaping a complete sweep. Their valiant effort flinging Yooyus led them to a draw, and their highest score of the day. If Brightvale keeps up in this vein, they may be able to pull themselves out of the bottom four. Krawk Island, however, will be endeavouring to stay in the top half of the standings. And finally, the Lost Desert achieved their ninth sweep this year against the Altador Suns, casting something of a dark cloud over the Suns' hopeful start. The Mummies are vying for a podium spot this year, and it's just within their grasp. Altador, on the other hand, is fighting to emerge from the bottom half. Now Matt's got a day off, presumably for some sort of relaxing activity somewhere with working light fixtures. So I'll turn the rest of our report over to my dear friend Midtime. In the meantime, I'll be finding some candles or something. Midtime? [The camera pans over to a patch of darkness, which reaches up and turns on the headlamp mounted awkwardly on its hat. It is Midtime.] Certainly, Brooke. Oh - you'll find candles in the third supply closet, if I recall correctly, underneath the large pile of tin foil which I recently purchased, just in case I ever need an extra hat. Now, here are the results for the Vaeolus Bracket. The Natives have scored their third consecutive win in a row today - and this one a sweep: a refreshing surprise after the difficult season they've had so far. Their opponents, the Ninjas, have had even fewer chances to celebrate: despite having an excellent side-event record, their Round Two match against the Haunted Woods was one of only two victories they have won this season. It is a sorry start to the round for Shenkuu fans, who hope that the team may yet find a way to turn their situation around. The Terror Mountain Chillers have been visibly improving in their performance throughout Round Two, and after taking a sweep from the indefatigable Fossils, who are currently in third-place, they were well pleased to give a markedly improved showing against the Moons this afternoon. Although the Moons won the Yooyuball game, the slushie service evaluation, and the match overall, the Chillers actually outdid them in penalty scores, and Terror Mountain fans made no small amount of noise on behalf of their team, taking that side event as well. Prytariel, captain of the Chillers, referred to the match as "though not quite a success, absolutely a lesson in it". The next time Terror Mountain faces one of the tournament favourites, perhaps a new powerhouse will come to light. [The reporter pauses, expectantly.] It appears that contextually appropriate puns do not always bring about miracles. The studio lights are still burnt out. As for the last matchup - Team Moltara saw a break in their dismal season record with a distinct victory in the refreshments category. The remainder of the events went the way of Darigan Citadel - that is to say, up rather than down. Commentators say that although the overall result is no surprise given the Magmas' performance, the underlying scores were close enough that they could quite possibly have taken this one away. Meanwhile, Captain Layton Vickles of Darigan Citadel, responding to a brief interview, reported himself "more than optimistic" about his team's four-day win streak. "One or two hard matches wo'n't hold us back," he sniffed. "Let's not call us mid-tier until the finals." Now, you may have realised that I have not imitated Vickles' famous S sounds. This is because we are currently sitting in the dark, and should someone happen to accidentally light the fuse on one of the sticks of dynamite we keep in the third supply closet, I should not want to mistake it for any other sound. It is not unheard of for members of staff, upon finding the door to the break room accidentally locked, to dynamite a tunnel through the floor and get access that way, just in case knocking would inconvenience any present occupant. Naturally, we also take care to fill up the hole afterwards: safety and respect for others come first for all of us here at TDN. Who else here does this, by the way? Any one? No need to be- Oh. All right, then. On to the matches to watch! The results of Shenkuu's engagement with Moltara may well be a deciding point in the future of the former, while allowing the latter another chance to prove their worth in a match against a team in their league. Maraqua, despite their middling record, may have a hard time against the Zombies, who according to analysts are matched evenly with them, and may leverage a victory over the Mermaids to lift themselves into a much more competitive position. My head-lamp is threatening to fall off my hat. That was not a matchup: technically speaking, it is probably going to be the opposite. Thank you very much for your patronage, dear viewers. This has been Brooke and Midtime, reporting for TDN. Pax vobiscum, and have a good evening!

  6. HELLOOOOO, SPORTS FANS! And welcome back to TDN's coverage of the tenth Altador Cup! This is Brooke, reporting from the studio, where just about everyone is feeling refreshed and well-rested after the bye day. Or, if they're like me, they feel more groggy and cranky than ever! Hooray! So let's get on with round two. The second round in the Alabriss bracket kicked off with sweeps galore as the new sets of teams went head-to-head. The sweeps started with the Lost Desert and the Darigan Citadel. The Mummies have only gone one day without a sweep so far this year, and today was not that day. The Minions were buried under the impressively consistent scores of the Mummies, making for a rocky start to the second round. Next up, the Zombies and the Pirates did battle in a scene rivalling any zombie-apocalypse-swashbuckling-crossover film we've ever seen. The scores were close, but ultimately Krawk Island came out on top, pushing the struggling Haunted Woods further back in the pack. Despite their victory last year, the Zombies have been fighting to stay afloat, and currently sit in the bottom of the standings. The Pirates have had their struggles as well, but overall, they're not doing too badly at all. In the third pairing of the Alabriss bracket, powerhouse Tyrannia took on the Ninjas. The Fossils now stand in third place overall, so it comes as no surprise that they brandished their brooms and took Shenkuu down on all fronts. The Ninjas haven't really contended for the Cup since AC IV, but they may yet hearken back to the glorious years preceding that, where they were a force to be reckoned with. Tyrannia has only had one podium finish in the history of the games, but they can certainly be intimidating! Now, if my illustrious colleague has not locked him in another broom closet, I'd like to hand things over to Midtime for the next bracket. Midtime? "Thank you, Brooke. I can gladly say that for now I walk free, if not exactly in the company of Matt at any time in the foreseeable future. After a meeting with our manager, I will also be making a concerted effort to link any jokes or wordplays I make to relevant current events. Now, let us not keep the Minitheus bracket results locked away any longer. "Team Meridell, who have thus far triumphed over every other team they have met, did not flag in their match against Moltara today. Although the Knights played the same solid game as usual, the benches saw surprisingly little turnout for their supporters. Magma fans, few but earnest as ever, scored well in Make Some Noise, denying Meridell what could have been their second sweep of the season. Our interviewer described Moltara captain Aldric Beign as "stoically cheerful" when questioned about his team's performance, as well as "smelling distinctly of dust and expired bleach". Oh, my mistake. They were in fact talking about me in that last part. "The Kreludor Moons, also undefeated in Round One, saw their week-long sweep streak come to a jarring end at the hands of this year's Cup favourites, Kiko Lake. The Moons certainly gave better on the field than most other teams have managed to, but the Kikos were unflagging, and the ferocity of their offence won out at last. Fans of the Moons were far from ecstatic at the resulting sweep, and many are looking to the team's game against the Faeries tomorrow to reaffirm their hopes for the championship. "After ending the previous round with three straight losses, the Faeries have made a determined push back, edging Brightvale out at Yooyuball with a narrow 5-4. The match ended to much cheering on the part of Faerieland's fans - something you might have heard yourself if you happened to be anywhere in Altador at the time, and not in some sort of chamber insulated against sound, such as a broom closet. With so many strong contenders in the bracket, both the Faeries and the Wizards seem set for a very difficult second round. "That is all for the new Minitheus bracket! We'll go to Matt for the remainder of today's report, while I finish meticulously praising his on-site performance in the weekly report I am penning to higher management. Pax vobiscum!" Thanks Midtime, I see you've managed to free yourself... [Matt mumbles something about installing a better lock for the closet.] Anyways, the Vaeolus Bracket, which has undergone changes for this new round has mainly been filled with mid-tier teams. As there are no serious contenders for the Cup in the bracket, matches will be much more unpredictable! Spectators have already seen that sweeps will be uncommon for the next five days. With my trusty babysitter at my side, let's dive straight into the results! Terror Mountain was able to pull off the only sweep of the bracket, cleanly defeating the Suns in all areas. The Suns' performance on the Yooyuball field paled in comparison to the Chillers'. Terror Mountain was once again able to make some noise as their loud cheers could be heard from the next stadium down! Although the Chillers have a medium fanbase compared to the powerhouse teams, Prytariel and her team were definitely able to rile up the crowd in yesterday's match. Coming off of their win against the Suns, the Chillers will face a more difficult opponent in the Robots. Mystery Island and Roo Island faced off on the Yooyuball field yesterday, and while the Natives were able to take a close victory in Yooyuball, the Rooligans were able to pull off a side sweep. Similarly, Maraqua sideswept the Robots in yesterday's match, shorting out their circuits in the side games. Yooyuball was back and forth between the Mermaids and the Robots throughout the match, and after a magnificent goal by Virtupets Team Captain, Keetra Deile to tie up the match, officials ruled the match a draw after regulation time was finished. All four teams will be searching for an opportunity to overtake Terror Mountain in the bracket standings. From this point on, most teams have shaken off their Altador Cup jitters and are now starting to buckle down and focus on earning as many points as possible within the next few weeks. Transitioning to our interesting matches of the day, we take a look at the match between Terror Mountain and Virtupets. This match will definitely be hard to predict given the Robots' tendency to perform erratically. Terror Mountain seems to have the advantage in today's matchup, but the Robots are a fierce team that is not to be underestimated. Spectators should also keep their eyes on the match between Krawk Island and Shenkuu. With excellent performances in Slushie Slinger and Shootout Showdown so far in this Cup, the Ninjas will be a challenge for the Pirates, who have not been performing at their full potential. Will this match be a wake up call for the Pirates? Find out in tomorrow's report! That is all for our report today. This is Matt live from the studio signing off.

  7. HEAR YE, HEAR YE! Come one, come all, and hear the news! Seriously, guys, this hot scoop is going to blow your mind. Are you ready? Are you sure? Here it is! Day three of the Altador Cup has successfully come to a close, and we have received not a single report of anyone getting hit in the face with a stray slushie! Pretty cool, huh? ....no? Ooookay, moving on then. Uhh... the report. Right. This is Brooke, reporting once again for The Daily Neopets, this time coming to you from a (hopefully) sturdy tree branch in the loveliest sunny spot not far from the stadium. I was feeling a bit squirrely sitting around the stadium all day. Get it? "Squirrely"? I- hold on a second. I'm getting a message from the boss. [There is a rather awkward silence for a couple of minutes as the reporter presses a finger to her ear and listens, punctuated occasionally by the odd "uh-huh" and "yes, ma'am".] I apologize for the delay, friends. It would appear we've received several viewer complains regarding my... alleged sense of humour. I've been informed that I don't actually have one, and had better just stick to the results. So. I guess I'd better tell you about the Alabriss bracket. Krawk Island and Roo Island went up against each other today in the first Alabriss match so far to not result in a sweep. The Pirates had a slight advantage today as they took the main event as well as Shootout Showdown, whereas the Rooligans only took one side game. When it came to slushie slinging, the teams found themselves evenly qualified, resulting in a draw. The Pirates threw a particularly energetic party this evening to celebrate the abrupt end of their potentially deadly sweep-streak. Next up, Maraqua and Lost Desert faced off for the second day in a row, and though the Mermaids redoubled their efforts and managed to bring up their score in Yooyuball, the Mummies buckled down and held their own, resulting in wins across the board. The Lost Desert team has managed a sweep every day so far, and will be looking to keep it up. The Mermaids, on the other hand, will be working to prove their first sweep was no swan song. In the final match of the Alabriss bracket, Kreludor and Moltara took to the battlefield. The Moons' scores were a bit lower than those of the first two days, but still good enough to land them their third sweep in as many days. The Magmas, on the other hand, have been on the receiving end of three sweeps in a row, and will be putting their collective noses to the proverbial grindstone to come back from this discouraging start. Now I'll be turning things over to Midtime for the Minitheus bracket. I bet he's still allowed to make jokes... "Mm-hm - yes - understood. No, ma'am. I wouldn't dream of it. I will do my best. Absolutely, ma'am. I didn't - no more jokes about Faerieland, ma'am. Not even accidental ones. No, ma'am." [The reporter glances at the camera, then panics.] "Oh - we're on, we're on! Um - I am afraid we will have to continue this conversation at a later point and greetings, dear listeners! The Minitheus bracket has been the site of much Yooyuball and excitement thereover, recently as always, um, and I would be glad to detail it for you. I will - I will do that right now. Yes. "Today's repeat matchup, Darigan Citadel against Virtupets, brought about a sound sweep on the part of the Minions - their best showing so far. Comments were numerous concerning the team's extraordinary game-sense and technical accomplishment. If it has previously been said that their strength is in discipline and determination, here is the finest proof that could be furnished for the claim. At the same time, off the field, the members of Team Darigan are exuberant, and have announced they will be attending the scheduled fan-meet later this evening. It promises to be a lively event. "Meanwhile, Faerieland's own contended to a standstill with the Knights, who are currently the leading team of the bracket. The match was climactic: few audiences at the Colosseum today were half so rapt as those who turned up to watch Meridell and Faerieland, and the uproar that occurred when the referee brought the match to its conclusion might be exceeded only by the uproar that occurred when it was declared, at last, that the victory should be awarded to Meridell, on the basis of penalty scores. For my own part, I could not have imagined that the voice of a crowd, however immoderate, might put me so in mind of the frequent explosions of last season. [The reporter's expression briefly glazes over.] "Er. Lastly, Team Altador played a truly remarkable game against Shenkuu, pushing past their iron defence to secure a victory for themselves in the final few minutes. While they were still outdone in auxiliary performance, the Suns had no qualms about celebrating their first Yooyuball win of the season - the first, they hope, of many to come. The Ninjas have thus far maintained an excellent side-game streak, but with such fierce competition in the central event, they will be pressured to redouble their efforts in games to come. "That does for the Minitheus bracket! Thank you for watching this report. I will pass you on to Matt, now, for a summary of the final bracket delivered in the utter absence of humour or levity. [The reporter turns to someone off-camera just before the feed switches.] "Or, as I might call it, a boredca-" Yes, thank you Midtime! Hello everyone, I'll be presenting the results of the Vaeolus Bracket to you all once again. As usual let's dive straight into the results. The front-runners of the Vaeolus Bracket, Tyrannia and Kiko Lake, clashed on the field today. The Kikos left nothing to chance today as they swept the Fossils in a dominating fashion, smashing their Make Some Noise record with an impressive score of thirty-one! Both teams are not only frontrunners to win the Vaeolus Bracket, but also frontrunners for the podium. An impressive showing by both teams; will anybody be able to stop the Kikos? For our next matchup of the day, Terror Mountain and Mystery Island went head to head today, and the Chillers were dominant from the very start. Terror Mountain's 3+1 formation helped the Chillers take the lead from the beginning of the match and maintain it throughout the entire match. Terror Mountain's fans were so loud that their voices could cause an avalanche! The Natives will be facing off against the Kikos today; a difficult match lies ahead of the Natives. To wrap up the Vaeolus Bracket, the matchup between Haunted Woods and Brightvale gave the bracket a little variety in today's matchups. The only match that did not end in a sweep, the Wizards yooyu-slinging skills were right on the mark today as they were able to take Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown from the Zombies. Although undead, the Zombies' fans were not to be outdone as they were able to take the victory in Make Some Noise, and slushies were flying out of the Zombies' test like mad, giving Haunted Woods the victory in Slushie Slinger. Haunted Woods certainly has fallen after their victory last Cup, but one fan comes to their defense stating that, "Haunted Woods' full potential has not been awakened yet, and when it does, the other teams will be quivering with fear!" Fans of the tournament will definitely be watching how profound of an effect the "winner's curse" will have on the Zombies. Continuing onto the interesting matches of the day, many fans will be flocking to watch the match between Krawk Island and Roo Island. Although it may be a rematch, fans will be eager to see how Captains Garvin Hale of Krawk Island and Lilo Blumario of Roo Island will readjust their team's strategies after playing with each other once already. Will Krawk Island be able to sweep the Rooligans? Or will the Rooligans be able to foil the Pirates' plans? Find out tomorrow! This concludes today's report! On behalf of Brooke, Midtime, and the rest of our Altador Cup coverage staff here at TDN, this is Matt signing off. Until tomorrow everyone.

  8. Hello again, friends, and welcome to another exciting day here at the Altador Cup! This is Brooke, reporting for The Daily Neopets, and trying her best to come up with some original sweeps-related puns. (And it's only the second day!) Let's plunge right on ahead with the Alabriss bracket, where once again the brooms were on the attack. Maraqua attempted to flood the Lost Desert today, but at the end of the day, the Mermaids found themselves all washed up. For the second day in a row, the Mummies pulled off a sweep against their opponents, finding particular success on the Yooyuball pitch. Their fans also achieved a decent victory as they showed their spirit. The other events were close, and as the teams face off again tomorrow, Maraqua may just be able to snag a couple of wins. In the second match-up of the bracket, the Magmas found themselves being swept once again, this time by the rollicking Rooligans, who were themselves swept in yesterday's matches. The teams from Roo Island and Moltara both brought some scores up from their consistent numbers yesterday, but ultimately the Magmas' flame was quenched by the irrepressible spirit of the Roos. The Alabriss bracket is rounded out by another sweep in the match between Kreludor and Krawk Island. This was the second day of sweeps for both teams, the Pirates on the receiving end and the Moons dishing it out. When the plunder was over, the Pirates comforted each other over a cool cup of slush. Ealyn Hawkshanks, centre forward for Kreludor, was spotted outside the shop performing a rather humiliating impression of the Krawk Island goalie that involved a wild belly-flop and a face full of grass. Tempers flared, but the team captains were able to stop their teammates from going head-to-head. Hawkshanks declined to comment on the incident. Hopefully things were a little calmer in the Minitheus bracket. Tell us about it, Midtime! "I will indeed, Brooke. It is marvellously calm in the Minitheus bracket! The sun is bright, the moon is beautiful, and I am on the streets until my bank transfer goes through because I vastly underestimated the on-season costs of temporary lodging in Altador! A random citizen accosted me not ten minutes ago to rant about Yurble Day not being cele- oh, right. You mean the results. Yes, let me get to those. "After the concerted effort the Robots made in their kickoff match against Shenkuu, their fans may have hoped for a similar performance against the Minions. Unfortunately for them, the Minions have always been resolute, and turned the narrow loss of yesterday into a narrow win today. Should their performance on the field remain as steady as it has, perhaps they will be able to work their way up the standings once again. DC Captain Layton Vickles responded to interviewers with his trademark earnest: 'If you're impressssed with today's plays, you won't believe what we've got in sssstore for the rest of our games.' Team Virtupets, undeterred, promised fans that this match was not representative of the team's full capacity, and that the 'new direction' they were taking would match, if not exceed, their performance of yesteryear. Certainly it is too early to be discouraged. "The Meridell Knights, spurred on by their aforementioned victory against the Citadel Minions, utterly swept Altador today. The concerted efforts of players and fans have lifted Meridell to the top of the rankings for their bracket, a fact which has not gone unappreciated. Although morale is low among the Suns' support base, Captain 'Trapper' Remis assures fans that they will see an Altadorian victory soon enough. 'We didn't give up last year, and we aren't giving up now. We know we have what it takes.' "Perhaps most remarkably in this bracket, Cup underdog Faerieland has gone on to score its second win of the season - this time against the Shenkuu Ninjas. Few commentators can have expected the showing that the Faeries put on, and neither did the Shenkuu team, whose recovery from the extraordinary passing play that initiated the round came a little too late. Faerieland's team coordination has always been their strongest suit: although the team's fan are sanguine as ever, many of them have begun to wonder if new heights are now within reach. "What do you mean, 'too soon'? "At any rate, those are the results for the Minitheus bracket, and I hope they have either excited you or calmed you down, depending on your personal preference. On to Matt, for the Vaeolus!" Thanks Midtime! The Vaeolus Bracket was once again full of action! Let's take a look at the results. Similar to the Alabriss Bracket, it was mainly sweep central in today's matchups. Kiko Lake was able to dominate in today's matchup against the Terror Mountain Chillers. The Kikos were able to cleanly sweep the Chillers today while shattering their high scores in Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, and Make Some Noise from the previous day. If the Kikos continue to perform at this level, it seems as if there is no other place to go than up! Our reporters were able to get a quick word in with Kiko Lake Team Captain "Poke" Cellers regarding their performance in the first few days of this Cup. "Our team has been trying for years to make it to the top, and our fighting spirit and determination has finally come through for us. It is still too early in the Cup to tell, but I believe that our team has a strong chance to win the entire Cup!" Cellers stated as the elated Kiko Lake team headed to a slushie stand to celebrate their victory. Save one for me! Moving on, Tyrannia was also able to produce a similar result, cleanly sweeping Brightvale in all aspects. No foul wizardry occurred today as the Fossils were able to sweep yet another team. Currently sixth place in their bracket, Brightvale needs to find their momentum, and quickly before they end up in the bottom tiers. The tournament is still in its early stages, so the Wizards will continue to have a chance at their single digit finish. In our last matchup of the day, Mystery Island went head to head with Haunted Woods. The two teams fought valiantly on the Yooyuball field, and in the end, the Natives were awarded with the victory. However, all was not lost for the Zombies as they sideswept the Natives. Currently fifth in their bracket, Haunted Woods will need to break free from the dreaded "winner's curse" and move up in their bracket for a chance to finish in the upper to middle tiers. That wraps up the Vaeolus Bracket! Now let's take a look at the matches to watch for today. Spectators are in for a treat today as the powerhouses of the Vaeolus Bracket, Tyrannia and Kiko Lake will be facing off against each other. Both teams are now favorites to take the Cup, and this vital matchup could decide which team will be the victor of the Vaeolus Bracket. The match between Lost Desert and Maraqua will also be one to watch. Although the two teams have already faced before, the Mermaids are seeking to prove that their victory against Krawk Island was not a fluke after being swept by Lost Desert in yesterday's match. That is it for today folks! Reporting live from the newsroom, this is Matt on behalf of Brooke, Midtime, and the rest of the Altador Cup Coverage staff here at TDN, I bid you farewell until tomorrow. Don't forget to stay classy. Obligatory disclaimer: This news report was written to inform you all of the latest Altador Cup results in as entertaining a manner as possible.
