The eleventh annual Altador Cup began on June 1, 2016 (Year 18) and concluded on July 1, 2016. As with previous years, users were asked to choose one of 18 teams, each representing a different Neopian land. After joining a team, users competed by playing games of Yooyuball, Slushie Slinger, Make Some Noise, and Shootout Showdown. A staff tournment was held in conjunction with this event.

Format[edit]

Altador Cup XI saw the return of the bracket system used in Altador Cup X. The tournament consisted of five rounds and each round lasted five days. Between each round, all teams received a single bye day. At the beginning of each round, the eighteen participating teams were divided into three bracket. Each team then played five games against other teams in their bracket. At the end of the round, teams were ranked within each bracket based on how well they performed against the other teams in their bracket. Each team was then rewarded points based on their final position within their own bracket. Later rounds were worth more points than early rounds:

1st Place 2nd Place 3rd Place 4th Place 5th Place 6th Place
Round 1 13 points 9 points 6 points 4 points 2 points 1 points
Round 2 17 points 14 points 11 points 8 points 5 points 4 points
Round 3 22 points 18 points 14 points 12 points 8 points 7 points
Round 4 27 points 24 points 18 points 16 points 11 points 10 points
Round 5 33/30/27 points 29/26/23 points 27/24/21 points 24/21/18 points 21/18/15 points 19/16/13 points


Altador Cup XI featured a scoring change for Round 5. Teams were arranged in the final round based on their current standing, placing the six teams with the highest total points into the Alabriss Bracket, the next six highest into the Minitheus Bracket and the last six teams into the Vaeolus bracket. The points a team could be awarded for Round 5 depended on which bracket they were in, with the Alabriss Bracket awarding 33/29/27/24/21/19 points, the Minitheus Bracket awarding 30/26/24/21/18/16 points and the Vaeolous Bracket awarding 27/23/21/18/15/13 points.

The team with the most points at the end of the tournament was declared the champion.
