Handling Your Team’s Loss in the Altador Cup
We’ve all seen the results, and you can do the math: there are 18 Altador Cup teams out there representing the lands of Neopia, but only one can take home first place. That means, most of you out there can't claim to have that shiny new gold trophy adorning your lookup. As with any sports game, tension and emotions run high after the finale of the season, and many normally Cybunny-sweet Neopians have become fraught with disappointment after their AC loss this year.
For those unable to bear the frustration of losing, looking for helpful coping mechanisms, or just interested in the most effective ways to stay strong and support their team in the just-dawning post-season, I've compiled a list of the strategies I've found helpful in lessening the blow. I hope that some of them might help you all, too. Above all, remember: every one of the teams played hard this year and conquered many obstacles, and you should be proud of your part in the Cup, whether you're a starting player or a triple All-Star!
15 Awesome Neopoint Backgrounds For Summer
Ah, summertime! That wondrous time of year when even Terror Mountain isn't so cold. The weather all over Neopia is balmy and beautiful, and many of us have extra free time on our hands. From lounging on the beach to sweating in the Altador Cup arena, summer is a time for fun and recreation. Why not give your Neopets a new outfit to reflect that? Even if you're short on NeoCash, there are still a ton of fantastic options available at every price point. In no particular order, here are 15 of the best wearable backgrounds for summertime, all of which are obtainable with Neopoints alone.
1. Bridge to the Orchard Background
Approximate price: 620,000 NP
What could be more summery than a stroll through a beautiful orchard? As you cross a quaint wooden bridge over a gentle stream, fruits and flowers bob in the breeze. Maybe you can bring some apples home in a basket and make a pie later. I feel relaxed just looking at this background.
2. Fyora's Balcony
Approximate price: 8,000 NP
Further downstream in the lush cliffs of Faerieland, beautiful purple brick towers are sparkling in the summer sunlight. You can smell the fragrant trees and flowers on the air as you stand on Fyora's warmly-lit balcony. Fluffy clouds float along in the distance through the brilliant blue sky. Does summer get any better than this?
