*Waves from the VIP Booth* Bet you wish you were here? Today we have the match report for Day 3 (June 3rd) of the Altador Cup. News just in! Ex-player of Team Faerieland (Babolino) has received a special honour from Queen Fyora on Fyora Day for services to Faerieland. Congratulations, Babolino! (Unfortunately we weren't told the details but I'm sure it's a good thing.) There are no clean sweeps to report about today.

There is one thing you should never do against Team Darigan Citadel... Never insult them because of their Orb! Team Brightvale made that mistake and lost out to Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. They managed to avoid a clean sweep by Drawing in Slushie Slinger. "I'm not apologising," Kayn Hirek said stubbornly, glaring at Captain Layton Vickles of the opposing team. "Especially not after they beat us." Layton sighed and added with boredom, "Always with the personal attacks. Can everyone just leave the Orb out of this?" Don't mess with the Orb!

A similar result was echoed in the Lost Desert versus Terror Mountain match, with the icy team defeating the sandy team with wins in Yooyuball, Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Like the DC versus BV match, they both tied in Slushie Slinger. "This is Terror Mountain's year. Everyone should take cover because we'll be sending an avalanche!" Rhee Solters, Lost Desert's newest player, had the following thing to say; "It's not been the best start to the season but we're tough from the desert, so the next team will need to watch out."

The knights of Meridell took to sea and sunk thanks to the Maraquan currents. "Unfortunately we couldn't dominate the Yooyuball field and lost out to Shootout Showdown as well," Captain "Wizard" Windelle of Team Meridell admitted, rubbing his neck awkwardly. "The fans managed to give the Maraquans a right ol' thrashing in Slushie Slinger but still managed to lose Make Some Noise. It was a sad day for us Meridellians but we take our hats off to Team Maraqua for a good game." Captain Elon Hughlis of the opposing team yelled, "And don't you forget it!"

With signs of the ye olde Haunted Moon alliance reanimating from the grave, Teams Haunted Woods and Kreludor howled together to end up with two wins and two losses each. Captain Derlyn Fonnet of Kreludor had this to say, "We got the overall win with Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown, but the fans were no match for the Haunties in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. It was fun to face-off our old friends and who knows? This could be a good year for both of us." Brains Mortigan, Derlyn's penfriend and the Spooky Squad's Zombie Usul, only commented with, "Braaaaaiiinnnssss..." Ah, you joker, Brains!

The Kikos meant business yesterday when they faced the Ninjas in a battle that... didn't quite blow the audience out of the water, but it was still fun to watch. "Meela Kitah is a stealthy performer," Captain Mirsha Grelinek of Shenkuu said sincerely about the opposition. "Size is definitely an advantage for the Kikos and it was a well-played draw in Yooyuball." Team Shenkuu had taken the overall win, because they had won both Make Some Noise and Shootout Showdown. Team Kiko Lake were quicker on the throw when it came to Slushie Slinger and stole that victory away from the Ninjas. "Anyone want a spare slushie?" Holbie Pinnock asked cheekily, staring at the floor in the Slushie Stand.

"Agh, no, get sparkles off me ship!" Captain Garven Hale exclaimed mid-match against Team Faerieland as Team Krawk Island went head-to-head with them yesterday. The pirates, albeit tougher than most teams, were unable to plunder wins in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise. "The crowds were of equal volume," Ciona Broan of Team Faerieland stated to the press. "But our Slushie Slinging waitress was much more agile than the pirates' one. We're very pleased with the win." It was Team Krawk Island who came home with the prize with sounds wins in Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. "No Faerie will stop us," Zayle Sufhaux claimed with a glint in his eye.

Team Roo Island managed to kick sand into their opponents' eyes when they scraped the win in yesterday's match against Mystery Island, dominating Yooyuball. "Unfortunately we couldn't seal a flawless victory, because the Islanders fairly matched us in Slushie Slinger and Make Some Noise," Jair Tollet of Roo Island explained calmly. "It's a shame that we lost Shootout Showdown but we can always rally in the next match." Volgoth, Captain of Team Mystery Island, said that the Rooligans are a tough team to play, but it won't mean they will win in the next round!

Team Tyrannia managed to almost support game sweep Team Virtupets yesterday, except they came up short in Make Some Noise as the Colosseum resounded with an equal amount of cheers on either side of the field, ending in a draw for that game. Team Virtupets won the main event, Yooyuball, thanks to the undisputed system upgrades that XL Striker 3.8 had undergone during the off-season. "I FEEL FANTASTIC," XL Striker exclaimed in his monotony. I'm sure you do, Striker, it must be easy for you to handle those Clockwork Yooyu explosions! "AFFIRMATIVE." Needless to say, Tyrannia is still looking at retaining their support game powerhouse status.

And last but not least we arrive at the final match of the day, Team Altador versus Team Moltara. Now many of you will remember that these two teams combatted in the Consolation Bracket in ACV for 17th and 18th Place. Today Moltara was able to get their revenge on the Sun Squad by winning Yooyuball and Shootout Showdown. "The hosts of the tournament really need to step-up their game," Mor Gollog, Moltara's goalkeeper, stated matter-of-factly. "If we could do it, there's no reason why they can't." Team Altador's Timu had this to say, "Moltara are starting to show their potential now. I think the changes to Yooyuball made it fair on everyone."

Other news' just in. Hanso (Master Thief who saved Faerieland, you may remember him from The Faeries' Ruin plot?) has decided to watch a few days worth of matches in the Colosseum before he goes back to artefact hunting with Brynn! What a treat. Be sure to look out for him in the VIP Booth!
