The Hellawack Shiznit that happens inside my brizzle

By which I mean, yes, Roo Island did indeed win the Altador Cup this year. \o/

The prizes are… meh. I got two great plushies for my plushie collection, and a couple of wearable jerseys so my poor Skeith will no longer be naked seeing as how I stripped last year’s AC souvenir jersey off him and put it on my new Blumaroo. People who had nothing better to do with their lives but play Yooyuball could buy an actual Fire Yooyu Petpet.

As for me, I made Sim memorabilia:

winnars are us

The logo and group posters aren’t ready for download yet–I’m going to do all the teams, including the practice team, and release them as a big set. But the framed autographed Roo Island jersey is ready to go! (60K .zip, plz read enclosed readme.txt)

I may also make T-shirts and hats. And since Meridell (who I played for last year) also won their bracket, I might make something for them too.

ETA: By request, I made a basegame-compatible version of the Roo Island jersey. (336K .zip, no idea why it is so much huger but there you go)

And because some Krawk Islanders were good sports and asked nicely and all, I went ahead and made a Krawk Island jersey too:

KI Jersey

Just a basegame version on this one. 288K .zip.

I like Yooyuball.


Gentlemen… I like Yooyuball.

I like practice matches. I like double round robin matches. I like finals matches. I like post-finals practice matches.

Against Krawk Island, against Darigan, against Shenkuu, against Kreludor, against Lost Desert, against Meridell, against Maraqua, against Altador.

I love everything about this game.

I like seeing the AI fail to understand how Darigan balls work. When my opponent aims at my goal and throws the ball into the corner of the field, my heart dances.

I like scoring goals with the Faerie ball’s sparkly body. When I approach my opponent’s goalie head-on and throw the ball in a graceful arc that sails easily into the net, my heart soars.

I like it when I pick up a hot Clockwork ball and throw it at my opponent just before it explodes. I remember being moved when the blast scattered my opponents all over the field.

Getting the Altador Cup avatar was unendurably exciting. When my opponents whined in desperation, beating them 13-0 for the first time was spectacular.

When the minions of Darigan came bravely with their ACII championship trophy, and were tied in two events and beaten in the third by Meridell, I was at my height.

If I must lose, I like being beaten by teams like Terror Mountain and Maraqua so they may enjoy a moment of victory before I regroup and annihilate them in the second round. It is a sad thing to be eternally stuck in the middle of the rankings and never have much attention paid to you.

If I must lose, I like being beaten outright in all three events. Combinations of wins, losses, and draws only end in arguments over who won, drama on the Neoboards, and disgrace upon the sore losers on both teams.


I desire a match that is like hell.

Gentlemen, loyal subjects of King Roo who follow me, what do you desire?

Do you desire Yooyuball as well?

Do you also desire a match in which no quarter is given?

Do you desire a match that stretches the limits of Eyrie, Grarrl, Usul, Pteri, and Blumaroo, one that will pwn all the n00bs in Neopia?

Very well.

Then we shall have Yooyuball.

The night that will grant our wishes has come.


(apologies to… pretty much everyone)

Today’s Altador Cup update


HOLY CRAP, Meridell tied Darigan in two games and won in the third, I am so proud of my former team, GO KNIGHTS. \o/

As for my current team, Roo Island beat Darigan in two games and lost in the third. 😀 We also trounced Altador yesterday, which probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, and are in the process of trouncing Faerieland today. Which will also come as a surprise to no one. Tomorrow we play Lost Desert, then Haunted Woods on Tuesday, and then the only real threat in the forseeable future is Krawk Island on the 28th.

Also, WTF is Shenkuu even doing? You guys, come on, you finished in third place last year, do or do not, there is no try.

It’s that time of year again

Who pwns? Roo pwns.

Yeah, so I changed my mind about playing for Meridell again this year. It was close, really. I had to flip a coin.

I need to dig out my Roo filk from last year now!

One final bit of ROOpidity

Yes, Neocrap, deal with it, I promise I’ll shut up about it after this. Until the next plot thingy comes out.

I’d said I was probably going to stick with Team Meridell for next year’s Altador Cup, but… man, Roo Island is one fun goddamn team.

It’s the puns. Oh God, the Roo puns. Members of Team Roo Island refer to themselves as “Rooligans;” this has even been picked up officially by TNT. Every Rooligans board has a horrid Roo pun in the title. Random Roo puns about reading the ROOlebook and AmeROOca and macaROOni and cheese and ROOt beer and and and. And then there’s the filk. Oh my God, the fucking Roo filk.

I am guilty of contributing the following. I slammed it out in quite a hurry, so it sort of sucks, but: (cut for a double shot of filk) Read more

Well, shit.

BREAKING NEWS: Whose house? Not Roo’s house.

1st place: Darigan Citadel
2nd place: Roo Island
3rd place: Shenkuu (I repeat, wtf, although I admit I’m glad they kicked the crap out of Krawk Island)

Well, that sucked. (Neostupidity)

So I haven’t been posting much about the Altador Cup lately. Why? Well… let’s just say there hasn’t been much worth posting about and leave it at that. >_<

Meridell has been a hell of a fun team to back, though; it was mostly devoid of some of the dramallamaing rampant in some of the other teams *coughkrawkscoughdariganwoncoughgetoverit* and I’m sure if they do the Altador Cup next year I’m going to join Meridell again.

BUT! apparently, it is not yet over; once TNT officially announces the Final Four, one can throw one’s lot in with one of those teams. And although there has not yet been an official announcement, it’s pretty obvious who the Final Four will be*. So let me just kick off this last bit of Neostupidity with this:

roo island, hell yeah


*that being Krawk Island, Darigan, Shenkuu (srsly, wtf) and of course Roo Island.
