The two teams I am writing about today didn’t even exist a week ago. Uber Surfers was launched by Walter Mulder on Wednesday and Valentin Mavrodin launched his Hunters on Monday…but look at them now.
They are both Top Ten teams in the Competitive League…but even better than that, the Hunters team has recruited its full compliment of 25 players and while Uber Surfers has filled 16 of its 25 slots it has climbed to first place in the league. In fact it looks highly likely that Uber Surfers will be in the Premier League on Monday…how is that for a rapid rise to success.
I think what Walter and Val have done here, more eloquently than any words could do, is show that CTP teams is far from already sewn up by the current teams. With determination and skill anyone can come from nowhere and put their mark on the contest in just days.
In fact as I write this Walter has had something of a major impact on the Competitive League as Richard Arblaster has just disbanded his #ovendogs team to join Uber Surfers.
Coming up next: What happened when I saw Walter and Val in CTP Chat…
