Can't we get through captchas already? So all that would do would be piss off legit players.

 

We've got past every type of captcha they've tried so far but I don't think they'll do anything like that anyway, mainly because it would require an update to their game system and I suspect they'd be reluctant to do that. Wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing for us if they did though.

I can't wait to actually participate this year as part of team Codex. I was always a lurker before and could never be fucked to do the actual AC, legit or not. lol.

The legit players hate the captcha idea anyway, it would just make it easier for us to win :p I wouldn't like to play if I hate to type a captcha every few games. Especially for SOSD, because you don't really have to pay attention to win.

I feel Ike if they tried changing anything in the games, they'd just screw up the games and the site. They've already shown they're good at that, but not good at updating or fixing things. They may change how the scoring works and/or take away the bracket system.

The most telling thing is probably the wording of the editorial, they only say they're working on "some rule changes" so I would think that rules out significant system changes. Probably will involve rules like removing scores of frozen players, preventing team selection after the cup starts and things like that.

JumpStart probably wouldn't even know how to fix any of the games....they can't even fix AAA or the 70 other things that are broken on the site.

watch them make a glitch that allows u to switch teams during finals, that would be hilarious

 

Or multiplying the daily limit to each game by 100

Yeah, not sure what they mean by "some rule changes" yet, but...The funniest shit they could do would be randomising people's teams. Auto-assigning them. It would do something to prevent us all joining one team and smashing it to first place again, but ohhhh the tears on the boards would be glorious

 

and needless to say we'd still be cheating :V

They will not do that. There will be too much hate mail.

 

We can just create many account, there willl sure be enough to support.

That mechanism is just the same as AC 1 so maybe not a glitch.

By the finals, the codex team will be known and there will be potential drama:

To fight against the cheaters vs To join the cheaters to get gold.

Does that mean it becomes obvious who is cheating during the finals?
Will that result in a lot of freezings?
Sorry if it's a dumb question. I used to play legit so I'm new to this stuff. x_x

Well the scores by the team will have given it away by then. Last year it was rather obvious with the double digit score.

 

TNT cannot just freeze because you are in the winning team

if you are careful with SS or AoB then it is safe. Same thing as the normal flash game.

Okay, that's a relief! Thanks for answering my questions. :D

Oh, I'd love to see that. The neoboards would go insane!

There was something about the AC in the editorial today:

 

 

Hey TNT! *throws pocky* So the AC is still on, YAY!!! But there's something I'm confused about. I've seen some people who understood it as: 'it's coming next month' where as I understood it as: 'there will be more information next month' so which is it? I'm sure you're aware that it's usually in June, but that doesn't mean that can't be changed. Also, when you say your changing the rules, what does that mean? I won't ask for details because I know you can't give them, but are you changing the format, or are we still stuck with the evil brackets? please clarify both of these things. Thanks in advance. Please remove my username. ~ username removed
Glad you're excited! So first of all, the timeline hasn't changed! We'll be giving you more information next month as the lead up to the event starts, as usual with the press days in mid-May, leading up to sign-ups and warm-ups in late May, before the Cup itself starts in June. Now, we're keeping the brackets (I swear, the intent behind them is good!), but the Altador Cup Committee is seriously evaluating player feedback, as well as the data from previous years, and we will be trying to address some of the issues with them. There's more details to come, but that's all I can tell you for now! Patience, young grasshoppers.

 

 

I'm reading the reply as "we're still not totally sure what we're doing here lol". I shouldn't be surprised if there are no real changes in the end.

Man I haven't been on neo since the beginning of this whole jumpstart fiasco but if codex is playing I'd love to join in, watching adults bitch about people cheating on a childrens game is one of the few pleasures of the internet

I hope that even though I'm mostly just a lurker here that I will get to participate in the shenanigans ahead.

This may be the first year I actually bother with the AC. Previously I think I lasted about 10 minutes of playing those mind numbing games before I asked myself what the fuck I was doing with my life.

Seriously though, what are the odds they actually manage to find a way to keep SSer's from completely pwning at AC? The only way possible would be to remove the idea of teams and make it more of an individual challenge and JS won't do that because it would completely ruin the AC.
