Today’s the first day for the CTP Playoffs, and we’ve already seen a lot of fun happening. We’ll be live blogging here for the next 48 hours. Leave the page open and updates will show up automatically!
#10 Dream Team was ahead of UberSurfers this morning, but within an hour of the standings page being updated UberSurfers took off with over 400 million xp!
I opened up our internal Skype Call and started LIVE STREAMING it on Youtube. You can listen in, and interact with us LIVE: http://www.youtube.com/c/TimLindentheGrassGuy/live
So Tim and Justin have their own private battle going on and Tim is taking an early lead.
remember those memory limit issues we used to have with CTP Teams…great news memory issue fans…they’re back!
tim has fixed it already
Great news! It’s all fixed now..
wow how many times can one person say “comment on my blog” on one Skype call?
Justin joined our live call for about 1 minute, and pretended to be stuck in traffic so he could go back to bed!
haha – Brian Cullen is so witty…
oh no – Tim has his camera working…now you can see and hear him coding.
Tim is getting tired.. Too much coffee and no sleep!
so everyone on the call gets to see Tim’s bubbly personality…
Justin has joined the call!!
Now Justin has joined the call/blog/TY show. Welcome Justin.
If you aren’t watching, join us LIVE: http://www.youtube.com/c/TimLindentheGrassGuy/live
ring dings, devil dogs, hoodle doodles…no idea what justin is talking about right now.
now we have poodle doodles…you will have to talk to justin for the definition of that.
Everyone tweet Jon: http://ctt.ec/3udmJ
oh no…now the guys are ganging up on Jon…for the only reason that he is not on the call.
Something tells me that Jangle may be next.
Does anyone know about rare ocean-going ducks. They once played a big part in Justin’s life.
Now we are talking about how to make a hovercraft…
Justin is wondering where we will all be in 50 years
Justin is downloading his brain to Mars. Wouldn’t that be uploading?
Now we are speculating if we will ever get a 3d printer which will print out human clones on Mars.
Tom Wacker is now with us! http://www.youtube.com/c/TimLindentheGrassGuy/live
The discussion has turned to medical matters…why do people drool? is the latest topic.
Bored of medical matters the subject has changed to owl cams…people go onto the internet to look at live video feeds of owls. here is a screenshot of one such video stream.
Living Wealthy is closing in on Renegades!
what tim said but in pictures…
Justin talking about an All Star Team…sounds interesting.
this is getting all sports nerdy…i love it
Tom showed us a GAME CHANGER.. The Subscriber % bonus gives HUGE BONUSES! Build your list on RR like Eric is: http://clicktrackprofit.com/reloaded/teamsview.php?tid=5
Renegades have seen the threat and are pulling back a bit.
Tom – our resident CTP Teams expert – has been giving some really awesome insider information on team strategies to follow for success.
Jon just woke up….And didn’t know the guys were streaming…
Bill is back on the call
It is probably time to check back on that Barn Owl…
oh wow…Renegades didn’t like that scare from Living Wealthy…they are really pulling away now…
Fantasy CTP Teams for next season…that sounds like a great idea.
Massive changes coming for Season Four…that’s all we can say for now.
six billion for Renegades is old news already…look at this!!!
hey teams – win this first round game and you are guaranteed a cash prize of least $125
if you are in the bottom four then justin will give you an additional $500 bounty if you win your first round battles
Renegades are totally unstoppable right now…look at them go
so this is really hilarious…justin can’t hear us on the Skype call so he is pretending he hears us and is answering as though he can…sounds odd but is very funny. I guess you have to be here.
I am live blogging and can’t keep up with Renegades…since I took this screen shot they are another billion points ahead already
this is turning out to be THE battle of the contest so far but it is time to see where else the action is…time to ask Tom.
Bill bringing Jon up to speed on some of the topics we discussed earlier…human clones on Mars, drooling and barn owls.
11th place Easy Team still going strong and have opened up their lead over In To Win who were seeded sixth
Jon has asked me to let people know that he has gone to get a coffee.
yea Fahrenheight just went from this…
#RealTalk – Tom Wacker has just said what about Matt Badura…? Old team rivalries live on i guess. (good job those guys are friends)
Discussion has turned to bad guys or girls on CTP Teams…we need people who don’t mind who they upset.
Oh dear – Tim has played a prank on Jon and Jon has just found out. #NotHappy
Sitizens – should we bring it back? Asks Justin.
That’s not the prank by the way – we have moved on already.
We’ll be back later video streaming, for now LIVE BLOGGING when fun stuff happens!
so after four hours that is the end of the first live stream. it was great fun. thanks for taking part.
Epic start to the #CTPplayoffs !!! What will the rest of the day bring??
but just before we wrap up for this session…it looks like Living Wealthy is fighting back…
And now Living Wealthy is on top again!
And just like that WealthBuilders is leading Fahrenheit!
Team Renegades has gained 9 billion points since our last update, and squeaked by Living Wealthy!
the way the numbers are moving on this first 48 hour contest…well we have never seen anything as intense as this before.
Here we go, we’re LIVE: https://blab.im/jon-olson-what-an-amazing-start-ctpplayoffs
Fahrenheit Is now in the lead!
Jon is live on Blab right now! https://blab.im/jon-olson-what-an-amazing-start-ctpplayoffs
so just a quick thought…if Fahrenheit renamed themselves to Centigrade would they still be in the lead?
Quote of the day from Jon to Justin: “You’ve got dogs, I got nailguns.”
ok so its official…the badge hunt ends tomorrow (wednesday) at midnight Eastern.
Jon got a flu – Jon is in bed!
Don’t forget that the badge hunt ends tonight at Midnight eastern.
Tom Wacker has some tips for those who want to collect those last minute
But back to the playoffs…this is what I make of the first day of play so far…it is a bit longer than the usual CTP Teams blog post…but there was a lot of ground to cover.
Uber Surfers and Lucky 13 Too are really on fire right now…two teams to watch for sure.
just under eight hours to go now for season three first round play offs
WealthBuilders have been on top in their head-to-head battle most of today but not any longer…Fahrenheit have now gained a commanding lead.
It’s crunch time….Only a few hours to go until the end of the first round!!! Who do you have winning each match up?
massive battle going on right now between lucky 13 too and phoenix…team phoenix currently have the upper hand but these have swapping positions and battling like crazy over the last hour or so
Living Wealthy seem to be making a late move but have more to do and SurfAholics Alpha have extended their lead at the top.
WealthBuilders also making a late push but still have more to do with under an hour to go.
Lucky 13 Too now take the lead over Phoenix
Talking of Lucky 13 Too – they have nearly 90 billion XP which is more than any other team in the play offs.
we have now taken over the sports nerd blab for the final hour of tonight’s contest
WealthBuilders Is now in the lead!
So here is an image you dont normally see on a blab…the power of the ctp teams play offs
So Jon may be regretting his pick for this pair in the play offs…
I think Tim feels the same way…
Lucky 13 Too just joined the 100 billion + club but, amazingly, it is not enough to put them into the lead.
that was an 11% increase for lucky 13 too by the way
Fahrenheit Is now in the lead!
with 15 minutes to go, all justin’s cash is safe but it could change, in theory at least.
I would have liked to have seen Beginners and Winners make life harder for the Alphas…they have just coasted so far.
this is what it looks like when a team really, really, really wants to win…
but it is not over yet.
there is now just under 10 minutes to go…how many surprises are left?
I am going to say that Alphas, Lucky 13 and CSN will all go through to the next round with just five minutes ago.
with most of the other teams it is too early to say. this is going down to the wire.
WealthBuilders pull ahead in the last 2 minutes of play
Can Fahrenheit raise the temperature here at this late hour?
and we are done…for now
this first round of the play offs has been awesome. i hope you all enjoyed it.
