Welcome to Neuropia! Happy Hour

Well you certainly aren’t in your computer room anymore.  It has been kind of a drab week, but suddenly everything is starting to appear in technicolor!

You wander around aimlessly for a bit until a brightly back-lit woman in some kind of sparkle bubble appears before you.  She says she’s a “good witch.”  Being a science-minded person you are somewhat skeptical, but you’ve seen a lot of weird stuff today so you decide to just play along.  Plus she lets you take some swanky new kicks off a pair of disembodied feet!  Or at least you assume they were disembodied….  You try not to think about it for too long.

Some small statured people approach you and ask if you’d like to join them for the Neuropia Happy Hour.

“You guys have Happy Hour here?”  you reply.  “Are you sure that’s appropriate for an all-ages site… er… I mean for the Land of Neuropia?”

“Of course!” one of them replies.  “Happy Hour is when we eat lots of oversized candies and dance and sing!  It’s a very joyful time.  Won’t you join us?”

Join the land of Neuropia for a very merry Happy Hour!  Don’t get too hopped up on sugar though!  Your accuracy also counts for this one.

There will be 2 Accuracy Happy Hours.  You may play one or both.  If you play both, we will count your best one.  Times are as follows:

Fri, May 22, 2pm – 4pm ET
Fri, May 22, 10pm — 11:59pm ET
  • tote – Most accurate
  • poster – Top 5 most accurate

The usual Happy Hour bonuses + these accuracy bonuses:

1st Place Accuracy – 10,000 points
2nd Place Accuracy – 8,000 points
3rd Place Accuracy – 6,000 points
Achieve 95% Accuracy – 5,000 points
Achieve 90% Accuracy – 3,000 points
Achieve 80% Accuracy – 2,000 points

1,000 points for anyone under 80% who still plays at least 20 cubes in either slot.
(These bonus thresholds are non-cumulative, i.e. they will not combine. If you earn 3rd place, for instance, and presumably got over 95% accuracy, you still earn a 6,000 point bonus, not 11,000.)

Mentors: You are still allowed to mentor people during these time windows. Please just use your best judgment as to whether someone is asking you for basic newbie help vs. trying to have you boost their accuracy on cube after cube.

Scythes: Please avoid scything during these time windows. Even though accuracy for this will be retroactively calculated, we would prefer to go with accuracy based on pure gameplay and avoid accuracy inflation caused by scything your own or others’ cubes.
