I'll be playing for moltara, I assume that because it's a new team, more people will join it. I could be wrong however, and if lost desert do good I'll be gutted.


I'm too old for this!

That is basically the same reason as me, I won't let you down.

I still have my old technique for shootout showdown, I'm looking forward to it.

This is my first time playing this. I picked the haunted woodsss!!
But I got a strange popup when I clicked the neocash challenge button in the upper left corner.

Has anyone else had that? I didn't enter anything in, I just clicked cancel but I thought it seemed strange.

I joined the Darigan team as ususal....

About the Moltara team and the many people joining, isn't there some kind of math thing? You know they see how many members there is and then how many games are played and the scores and so on?

Nevermind, I have noticed that I get prizes every now and then... First a book for playing all the games once, and now a melted sugar Vaeolus for winning 5 Yooyuball games...

A bit bummed about this years timing though... I am going on a small holiday this weekend and wont be able to play... Hopefully everyone else will :)

Sometimes that box popsup, it seems to be an issue on TNT's side. Nothing to do with it but cancel it.



This year, TNT have given us achievements to reach for ACV. I have listed them and the prize in the 1st post.

Tragically, scores are normalized so that large teams aren't guaranteed to win.

At least, that's the story.

I've always thought the tournament is a bit rigged, but I enjoy playing, so I ignore that.

A little, yeah.

Curious question: Does anyone have links to past years' AC results pages?

Final Tables of the previous 4 ACs.

Daily results: AC III and ACIV (though they aren't in the table style that the one on Neopets use. )

I was shocked that Darigan Citadel was swepted by Brightvale as DC was one of the top teams last year.
