During 2014 we have shown beyond doubt that members of CTP Teams have real stamina. Just look at the points earned by the likes of SurfAholics Alpha, Lucky 13 and Uber Surfers week in and week out for the awesomeness of people on CTP Teams.
We know you can take the punishment of an extended contest, but for 2015 we decided to shake up things quite dramatically in order to make participating in CTP Teams even more fun and exciting for both new and existing players.
So instead of having one annual contest, we will have a number of seasons throughout the year which will give more people more chances to win.
To keep everyone their toes, not all seasons will be of equal length so some may be more of a sprint where others are more like a mini marathon. It means that different strategies may be needed for different seasons but we will always tell you in advance what is going to happen so that you can work out your best plan of attack.
Season Two Explained
The last blog post explained how the marathon $5,000 Season One will come to an end and this post will set you up for Season Two…
Start date: Season Two will begin on Monday January 5 at 00.00.01 Eastern. This means there will be a week between the end of Season One and the start of the next season to allow teams to recover, regroup and reorganize themselves if they need to.
End date: Season Two will end on Sunday March 15 at 23.59.59 Eastern which means it will run for ten full weeks.
How to win: Each week teams will earn team points which will both determine their position on the overall leaderboard and whether they qualify for the Premier League or the Competitive League – this will work exactly as it works right now. Where a team finishes at the end of a week in relation to all other teams in CTP Teams will determine their standing at the end of the season. The last placed team will get one point, the second last placed team gets two points, the third from last gets three points and so on.
It is these weekly points which will determine the positions at the end of ten weeks and thus determine the winners. There will be no separate monthly competition for these shorter seasons and the prizes for Season Two are still to be determined but as soon as they are then they will be revealed here.
