CTP Teams has been around for a while now and I have noticed that some people are unclear why their team may be in the Premier League one week and in the Competitive League the next.
A team’s overall ranking is based on the amount of team points they earn and the winning teams are the ones with the most team points on midnight Eastern on Sunday – ie right at the end of Sunday night 23.59.59.
Looking at the “overall” table will rank all the teams in order of the number of team points they have – regardless of which league the teams happen to be in.
However whether you move up or down a league actually depends on two things:
- the number of team points your team has amassed and
- your position in the league at the end of the week.
The points are important because they will determine a team’s position in their league. The position where a team ends the week is important because:
- the bottom three teams in the Premier League will drop down to the Competitive League and
- the top three teams from the Competitive League will move up to the Premier League.
So let’s look at the ‘overall’ table as of right now by way of example. Premier League teams are shown with a white background and Competitive League teams have a grey background.
So let’s assume that the week had just ended when this screenshot was taken – it hasn’t of course but if it had then we can see that Dream Team, Wealth Builders and Bonz Brigade – the top three Competitive League teams – would all be promoted to the Premier League.
Equally TE Racing League, CTP Masters and Life Timer – the bottom three teams in the Premier League – would all move down to the Competitive League.
As you can see TE Racing League, with 106.4 million points, has more points than the two teams below them (71.3 and 71.0 million points respectively) but it is their position in their current league which determines that they would drop down if the week ended like this.
I know that a lot of people already know this but if you are a new member or if this had never been explained to you before then I hope this blog post has helped with your understanding of how CTP Teams works.
