There's not a moment to lose—head on over to the Dome Decennial Challenges page to find out more about your challengers!




A final list of participant jnAccount usernames has been posted on our Registered Participants list. If you don't see your username, then unfortunately we couldn't find the jnAccount you entered.

Sorry that I am not able to be part if the new Dome event. I am here at JN every day yet never saw anything about it. Too bad, so sad.

Awesome event. Are the trophies being awarded by number of consecutive days you completed the challenges or simply by highest score?

And to increase your score does that mean to win more frequently or battle with higher damage/better equipment? Quantity/quality etc.
IE Someone with an untrained pet with bad BD gear would have to beat the Chia Clown 100 times to get the same score as someone who left scorched earth did 2-3 times?

What does "get the best score" mean?
chombysbiggestfan, November 10, 2022 4:45 AM NST
I am also wondering if "get the best score" means quantity or quality
zebshep, November 10, 2022 6:07 AM NST
I put two usernames down in my submission and just wanted to note that I will be battling from my main account as I got access back!
purplebin, November 10, 2022 6:59 AM NST
Now I'm wondering if I should be battling as many times as possible each day, but that doesn't seem right.
Not for 21 days!

"Best score" refers to the score you receive after each battle, listed on your Battledome Records page:

https://www.neopets.com/dome/record.phtml

Click on the challenger's name to open up your battle history and see your specific scores! We'll be taking the highest score listed there.
jessalynn, November 10, 2022 7:53 AM NST
Do we have to battle these challengers multiple times or just once?
jace999608, November 10, 2022 7:59 AM NST
Bit of advice for score, based on some testing I did just now -
-Your score is increased by defeating an opponent at a higher difficulty.
-Your score is decreased when you end the fight with less HP than you started with. Taking damage and healing during the fight won't lower your score if you heal from all of it. If your pet comes in with damage and heals so their health is greater than when they started, it won't affect the score.
-Turn count does not seem to affect score. (I tried ending a fight in 10 turns and ending a fight in 1, they gave the same score - but it's possible a fight in 20 turns might affect score, I didn't want to go to the trouble of testing that)
-Damage over the foe's max HP doesn't affect score. If your foe has 1HP left, you get the same score if the final blow is 1HP or 100HP.
contessa, November 10, 2022 8:40 AM NST
Yes, I would like to know this too - how many times do we have to fight each challenger and beat them?

If I just do one fight and beat them in the first round, should I keep battling them over and over?
jace999608, November 10, 2022 9:12 AM NST
@jessalynn and @contessa, see dave's comment above -
Click on the challenger's name to open up your battle history and see your specific scores! We'll be taking the highest score listed there.

It's just highest score listed. You can battle again for a higher score, but that's the only benefit to fighting again.
contessa, November 10, 2022 9:26 AM NST
jace999608 - thanks, I was not sure!
aleu1986, November 10, 2022 12:08 PM NST
I`m 9 hours ahead of NST and think I just missed the first day since it`s after 12pm NST now (first time getting on Neo today) but I`ll battle the opponents anyway, I don`t think my score wil count for today though?
yasmin_sb, November 10, 2022 12:15 PM NST
@aleu1986 - I'm 8 hours ahead of NST and only just finished putting my kids to bed so this is the first chance I'm getting to get on neopets. Bummer! Oh well, I guess I'll have to log on earlier for the next few weeks.
jace999608, November 10, 2022 12:26 PM NST
@aleu1986 @yasmin_sb It ends at 11:59NST. You still have a little less than 10 hours left. 11:59pm goes to 12:00am the next day.
aleu1986, November 10, 2022 12:33 PM NST
@jace999608 - Awesome, thank you! I find the AM and PM so confusing, lol!
marfbear, November 10, 2022 1:14 PM NST
I tested fighting the Chia Clown with two of my strongest weapons in one battle and just my weakest weapon alone in another and my score was the same for both battles.
pikachu315111, November 10, 2022 2:06 PM NST
*Comes in and drops a red clown nose and bag of ash*

Chia Clown: 120
Flaming Meerca: 172

Are these the highest scores you can get with these two or have some people gotten higher?
macosten - JN Staff, November 10, 2022 4:27 PM NST
@pikachu315111 - Looks like those are the highest you can get for those challengers! Congrats.

A quick tip: your score for a challenger, if you win, is equal to its difficulty plus the HP percentage you were at when the battle ended. If you can, try winning with a lot of HP left!
pikachu315111, November 10, 2022 9:29 PM NST
@ macosten:
Got it!
contessa, November 11, 2022 7:30 AM NST
This might be a dumb question but How can you tell if we battled the challengers today and not long ago?
zebshep, November 11, 2022 7:37 AM NST
Contessa: If you go to your battle history and click on the challenger it gives a score with a date and time.
contessa, November 11, 2022 9:37 AM NST
Thanks so much zebshep! I never thought of clicking on them before. Learn something new every day!

This is why I come to JN to ask questions, more helpful (and nicer!) than the Neo boards.
terrih, November 11, 2022 1:20 PM NST
Does anyone know what the highest possible scores are for today's challengers?
purplebin, November 11, 2022 4:26 PM NST
Oh good grief, I didn't know that clicking the challengers gave you the individual scores! Thanks guys!
remy, November 12, 2022 4:01 AM NST
Anyone know if the BD Challenger RE's are active on the redesigned pages? I know they're slightly different to regular RE's.

Been trying to unlock Sabre-X, refreshing all morning between the Plateau main page (redesigned) and the Giant Omelette (classic) doing 20 minutes on one then swapping to the other but starting to get paranoid TNT might have forgotten to implement them on the redesigned pages, can't find any proof online of anyone unlocking them on the new site.

Also are we still at risk of StackPath flagging excess page refreshing as suspicious?
pikachu315111, November 12, 2022 6:18 AM NST
@ remy:
@ macosten:
Macosten, I know you mentioned you tried to make sure that the Challengers you picked either didn't require an unlock or the unlock was easy, though in cases like Remy's you may want to consider implementing some alternative opponents they could go for. Up to you how to implement it; if my math is correct there's 277 participants which I don't think is too much you can't have some players just contact you saying they need an alternative opponent, offering them one, and taking note of it (I imagine you have us all on a spreadsheet keeping track of the scores). Obviously the exact scores between the intended and alternative opponent probably won't be the same so you'll them to give you some info (what Difficulty were they on and how much HP did their pet have left) so you could do the raw math yourself what their score would have been.
xfer, November 12, 2022 8:54 AM NST
Argh, I don' have Sabre-X!!!
alex, November 12, 2022 9:01 AM NST
I don't have Sabre-X either
remy, November 12, 2022 1:37 PM NST
Well, since my earlier post I've been refreshing all day in 40 minute bursts at the Giant Omelette, Town Hall, War Memorial and Concert Hall in the Tyrannian Plateau with no luck.

Would love to know if anyone managed to get Sabre-X as a challenger today and where in Tyrannia they were refreshing.
terrih, November 12, 2022 2:10 PM NST
Could you post somewhere what the max possible score is for each challenger?
xfer, November 12, 2022 2:16 PM NST
Ugh, so early in this, and many of us are already left behind :/
breezydreams, November 12, 2022 3:08 PM NST
I have Sabre-X, but I also support letting players battle an alternate if they can't get the opponent.
breezydreams, November 12, 2022 3:09 PM NST
zebshep, I'm SOOO happy you got back your main!

*confetti*
macosten - JN Staff, November 12, 2022 4:45 PM NST
Hmm. I didn't expect Sabre-X to be a challenger few people had access to. There's not a whole lot I can do about it for today, unfortunately.

Going forward, I would suggest you make an effort to unlock as many Battledome challengers as you can. You can see how to unlock a challenger by visiting their challenger profile on Battlepedia.

Importantly, (slight spoiler ahead) The Drenched *will* make an appearance towards the end of the event, so you should check to see when and if it's raining in Maraqua. We actually have a banner notification for it on Battlepedia when it happens!

I don't know if this holds true for every random event/semi-random event challenger, but from what I can tell, some of them don't seem to show up if you're using the new site layout. You should try adding a slash to the end of whatever URL you would otherwise visit and try refreshing there - that will often show you a page with the old layout.

For example, if you haven't unlocked Sabre-X yet, I would suggest trying to unlock him by refreshing on an old site layout page like, https://www.neopets.com/prehistoric/plateau.phtml/ (note the slash at the end - that's crucial here!).
roshchodesh, November 12, 2022 8:06 PM NST
I don't have the Lab Ray on this account, so I don't have Dr Death for an opponent. I have all the lab ray map pieces but the maps page is glitched. How long has that been broken now?
firenrocks, November 12, 2022 8:55 PM NST
Same boat- trying to get Saber-X, also don't have lab ray on my main so no lab scientist. I do have the Drenched and Snow Beast at least.
contessa, November 13, 2022 3:06 PM NST
Dr. Death? I do not have that opponent either, I thought I had them all?? :O

Where should I look for tips and which items to equip for defeating the Drenched?
contessa, November 13, 2022 3:48 PM NST
I tried battling them and only made it thru about six rounds before they defeated me
roshchodesh, November 14, 2022 2:15 PM NST
contessa, this is the Drenched battlepedia info:

https://battlepedia.jellyneo.net/index.php?go=showchallenger&id=60
jace999608, November 14, 2022 10:23 PM NST
@contessa roshchodesh is mixing up Dr. Death and the Lab Ray Scientist.
contessa, November 15, 2022 6:40 AM NST
thanks for info on the Drenched, I can beat them on easy but I want to beat them on hard!

jace999608 - thanks, but I don't have the Lab Ray Scientist either. Oh well!
acorna_unicorn_girl, November 15, 2022 7:43 PM NST
Whelp.. I'm definitely in trouble for the day the Drenched are the challenge... it looks like it's now impossible to get them as a challenger (since I've been checking the Maraqua weather page since that post 4 days ago)... the weather hasn't changed in 4 days... so the odds of it raining before that challenge looks slim to nil..... I suspect the script that changes the weather is broken.
bennyw, November 16, 2022 5:56 AM NST
Qasalan Mummy does not want to show up to fight me today How much refreshing should I be doing, really?
bennyw, November 16, 2022 5:57 AM NST
Nevermind, he finally showed up as an RE. Back to battling!
claytonskitten, November 16, 2022 9:50 AM NST
Qasalan Mummy refuses to show up for me even tho I've been refreshing on an old layout page. Any idea how long it will take to unlock????
xfer, November 16, 2022 10:26 AM NST
Yeah, I can't get Qasalan Mummy to appear. Hopefully I can spawn it soon before the day is over.
claytonskitten, November 16, 2022 10:26 AM NST
Welp, got Qasalan Mummy... can't seem to get past it even on Easy tho My healers aren't giving me full HP.
breezydreams, November 16, 2022 5:07 PM NST
The good news is, the JN link does produce the Quasalan Mummy (fairly quickly) using the rhythm "one one thousand, two one thousand) to avoid refreshing myself into lockout.

The other good news is I beat it on easy.

The bad news is there's a crack in my floor--happened when I look at the hard health and my jaw hit the floor. lol All fun!
purplebin, November 17, 2022 11:24 AM NST
I would love it if there was a link to the daily challenges on the main JN page, so I don't forget. I have the link bookmarked, but that's not enough for my aging brain.
purplebin, November 17, 2022 11:28 AM NST
I just for the first time checked my scores against other players, and I'm surprised to see a bunch of mine are one point less than what some others are getting. Except for the Mummy I've been beating all of them on hard in one turn with no loss of hit points.
xfer, November 17, 2022 8:06 PM NST
Yeah, I'd rather have a daily reminder of this contest. So far, I have not forgotten, but anything could happen.
macosten - JN Staff, November 18, 2022 6:23 AM NST
@purplebin (and anyone else interested):
I have been posting daily news post reminders on Battlepedia's home page (https://battlepedia.jellyneo.net/) to keep the main page less cluttered - you can find a day's challengers there (or you can find today's challenge on the event page).

I did mess up for a few hours earlier today, though - I accidentally set today's challenge to start and end yesterday, so it looked like there was no challenge today. I fixed that when I woke up, so it is now displaying correctly!
contessa, November 18, 2022 7:48 AM NST
Thanks macosten!
breezydreams, November 19, 2022 3:15 AM NST
"Scoring
After each challenge closes, we will review your Battledome records for the challengers we put you up against. We'll look at all of the battles you completed on the day of the challenge and pick the battle with the highest score."

Sadly, I have only skirmish records now. I don't know if its a property of lots of battles, or if Neo is broken again. I OHKO'd all the challengers BEFORE I started my skirmish battles. Looks like all that history has been overwritten in the database. So I did yesterday's challenges in the hour before Neo midnight, and ended my battling day. Surprise! The challengers still don't show. I've beaten all but the Qasalan Mummy on hard (QM on easy), but they all look blank when I click on them.

Thanks for the amazing effort. I'm going to defeat the challengers just for fun, I guess. Hopefully, those who aren't skirmishing will have their records.
breezydreams, November 20, 2022 12:00 AM NST
Update: I only did the 2 challengers today. I can still see the challenger records. I will have to do skirmishes again tomorrow, so I'll wait to do challengers last. (That did not help on the previous day that I tried challengers last. Its Neo. We'll see.)
