MaxPenguinqwert's State of the Battledome: September 2014
Posted by Max on September 16, 2014, 7:39 am NST
After a long delay, State of the Battledome is finally back. This month's article has been a long time coming. With the lack of Battledome updates, there has been little to no content to discuss. While we wait for the Battledome to finally be updated, we have seen a handful of weapon releases, many community run tournaments, an NC item blunder, and a brand new cove weapon!

For your Battledome fill, make sure to read Penguinqwert's latest article!

Edit: It appears that after a long wait, the 2-player challenge glitch has finally been fixed! Thanks to Drazu for the confirmation!

A new weapon will soon be finding its way into the Battledome in the form of the Maractite Bomb. This bomb is a Smugglers Cove item so be sure to try and snatch one up before they are all gone!

Update: It looks like the Maractite Bomb has been updated overnight, with it now dealing similar damage to the Ghostkerbomb.
SirCabbageSummer Scorcher II's Burning Finale
Posted by SirCabbage on August 30, 2014, 2:14 pm NST

The wildfire which goes by the name of Summer Scorcher II has been raging throughout the month of August pitting fierce L97 warriors against one and other in an all out brawl. Well after the fires of this double elimination tournament have started to burn down to their embers, victors have emerged from the chaos of the arena.

The brightest flame to emerge from this storm is the user Okay__ and his victorious pet KendrickL. Having doused the flames of his worthy opponents Okay__ was able to press forth and take out the trophy against Jadorelamode in the final match-up. From here, Jadorelamode was able to defeat the valiant Vexatory to claim second place regardless of this setback. Vexatory, despite being knocked out after only one other match, was able to fight back for third place. Not only did he crush many other strong opponents he was eventually able to get revenge over the player who knocked him out in the first place, Toon_Link_Dancing. This comeback lets Vexatory enjoy a well earned third in the tournament. Tying up the tournament with forth place is Pisha1, who was unlucky enough to face the eventual winner Okay__ rather fittingly in her forth match up. Even with this set back, Pisha1 was able to win one final match and secure forth place.

Trophies for this tournament are as follows:


Even if your name is not one of those immortalized with a trophy from the Summer Scorcher II, we here at Jellyneo would like to congratulate all participants in this scorcher. You all fought well and should be proud. To reflect this, any warrior brave enough to participate has earned this participation trophy- Wear it with pride and use it to help you surge forward to claim a higher trophy in future.

One final word about the continuation of these tournaments; Technical problems with the battledome are reaching a point where it is becoming harder and harder for people to participate in events. While we have no interest in stopping these events, we are going to be taking a break for a little while. Our current plan is for Penguinqwert to survey interest for future events in October and help us work out the way forward. If you have any feedback on this, or just want to ask questions about our tournaments or L97 in general you can always neomail Penguinqwert or comment below.

DaveHappy 10th Birthday, Jellyneo!
Posted by Dave on August 22, 2014, 12:03 am NST

We're 10 years old today! Waaaayyyyy back in 2004, Jellyneo started as a rather small fansite with no game guides, a few unreleased news findings, and a couple of image viewers. We've grown a bit since then.

So far this year, we've served well over 800,000 visitors, across seven major departments that contain:
  • A complete Item Database
  • A Wardrobe to come up with ways to dress your pet
  • Our massive Book of Ages, housing everything you'd want to know about Neopian lore
  • A Battlepedia for all your battling needs
  • A community of fellow Neopians (which you should sign up for!)
  • A database listing all the Neopets images you could want to find
  • And, of course, our main site, with over 4,000 pages of game guides, articles, and other Neopian help
Our big birthday surprise this year was a revamped Book of Ages, but we have more to come. Over the next year, we'll be slowly but surely revamping the rest of Jellyneo to have one unified layout with the goal of making it easier to find everything Jellyneo has to offer.

Here are some previews of what's to come:

After 10 years of success, we want to thank YOU our trusty visitor who has come back day after day, month after month, and year after year to make use of the Neopian help we provide. Without your feedback, suggestions and ideas, we wouldn't be nearly as prolific and useful. (And even the bug reports! We love fixing things!)

So thanks for visiting, and here's to 10 more years of Jellyneo! :)
