Season 6 – We Get Started April 4th

Huge Update: The Season Starts At Midnight, April 4th….

Here we go….We’re fired up and ready to rock for Season 6, here’s the rules for the season and some important changes to qualification, scoring and team based play:

SEASON 6 START: April 4th 12am EST



PRIZE POOL: $1000 + $1 each win

Teams are collecting Points

There will be a playoffs like previous seasons, except this time your placement will be based on team points NOT the win loss record. Every day teams can collect points, whether they win or lose the competition for the day the points count towards the playoff placements.

The Point Breakdown

One point will be given for every 3 vault games, 7 sub games, 5 eggs, or 1 million XP collected. The points for the team are based on an aggregate total of all qualified team members. So if a member is qualified and completes 1 vault game, another team member can complete 2 more to score a point for the team.

To Qualify

Every day at 12 AM EST a “new day” begins. To Qualify you must complete Tier 3 of the Daily Challenge plus 3 sub games and 3 vault and key games. Once this happens any XP you’ve earned while unqualified will be released and added to your team total, and any sub games, vaults, or eggs you collect will start to count towards your team.

The Daily Challenge Multiplier

There are 5 tiers to the Daily Challenge. If you complete 1 tier, your vaults will count as one. But if you complete 2 tiers every time you complete a vault you’ll be adding TWO to your team total. Complete all 5 tiers and you are now adding 5 vaults every time you play!

The SwagBucks Multiplier

This seasons’s special multiplier will be sponsored by SwagBucks! It works exactly like the Daily Challenge multiplier except it applies to everyone on your team. Join SwagBucks through our link and we’ll give your team a 5x multiplier…The best thing? It’s 100% free!

To claim your bonus multiplier – Join SwagBucks via our link and then send in a support ticket with your confirmation email. We’ll credit you as soon as we get your information!

The Daily Competitions

Every day you’ll be playing against another team to see who can claim the most points for the day. The team who wins will receive $1 towards their Team Cash, and will score 10 bonus points towards their playoff placements. On Sundays the bonus points will be 10% of the points collected for the day.

Important Changes For This Coming Season – Please Read

We listened to your feedback and changed 3 things for this season, which we think really cements this format for everyone involved….

– To be qualified, we now need to reach Tier 3 of the Daily Challenge instead of Tier 1. This was done to make sure our sponsors and promo partners got huge value from backing our seasons!

– You might ask, why are the End date and Playoff date to be determined? That’s because Tim is working on the schedule to give teams those much needed days off in between their competitions. Some teams didn’t even get a break last season and we need everyone refreshed and firing at 100% every time they are in a competition. As soon as the schedule is set, we’ll get the end dates put up!

– And finally, we heard the issues and agree, stacking bonus claim links for XP isn’t the right way to play the game. So there will be a 24 hour expiry date on all purchases for customers and game players to claim their rewards points that day of purchase. This way, we won’t have teams stacking claim links and claiming them all during the playoffs. We heard you and appreciate your feedback!!!

We hope you guys are as excited as we are for the upcoming season! With these small changes, we hope to cater to even more surfers and promo partners to take CTP Teams to a whole new level….Get ready, we get started April 4th!

    I hope stacking of XP only applies for points given after the 4th. I just got some from a purchase and haven’t used them since this time doesn’t count toward anything. If I use them now what good are they?

    • Jon Olson says:

      Still haven’t figured that out. They are still good right now, and there is no expiry yet. We are thinking more of when the new season starts. That’s when the expiry would come into play.

    • I´m Registered over a half year on Swagbucks. So I cant Create a new Account, and I dont will.

  2. Caroline Sabourin says:

    Alrighty then! Days off! Thank you 🙂

  3. I agree with the expiration date for XP sent as thank you gifts for purchases, going forward. The team points earned in the Badge Hunt, will they be added automatically when it all starts?

  4. mvitalyus says:

    Ultimate Surf Warriors are missing approximately $35 dollars of team cash. Our captain asked CTP about that with no reply. I would like to get some clarification from CTP.

  5. Lynn M says:

    Wow, Swagbucks, that’s a super oldie but goodie. I’ve been a member since around 2007 so DQ’d from any bonus, ah well. Best of luck to all the Teams this round!

  6. Anne Bergman says:

    Why there allredy team that have points ? Before season started ?

  7. libi says:

    thank you 😀
    let the games begin!! 😉

  8. Alzira Torres says:

    Well, I like the way season 6 looks like now. And we really need to break a between competitions.

    I hope it really goes well as it said.

    Already do go…..there come Season 6

  9. Tommy says:

    I’ve heard that Swagbucks is only for people from the US, is that true?

    • Jon Olson says:

      As far as I know, it is open to everyone.

      • I also had trouble signing up to this one. Support ticket I sent to them hasn’t been answered yet.

      • Alzira Torres says:

        Yes. It seems it is. I am from Brazil, and I tried to create an account, but I was unable too.

        It said that was not available in my country.
        I think that is not fair, cause we have member at CTP from all World.
        So we are not able to get the 5x multiplier

      • libi says:

        no its not open for every one.. 🙁
        its not open for me :'(

      • libi says:

        is season game really gonna end on may 8th?
        feels very short season :O
        or is there another matches waiting for us before playoffs start?
        thank you 🙂

    .. co I ´m OUT !!!

    Cannot I achieve th 25% for me and my team ???

    There is an alterntive solution to fix that? I am confused.


  15. Natasja says:

    I see we have a ne thing BH………… Badgehunt
    What does that mean and i see i have 7 badgehunt point, but noy sure how or when to use them?
    Can 1 of you give some information? THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):):)

  16. Jon Olson says:

    For everyone that can’t use SwagBucks or is having issues. We’ll come up with a solution. Just give us some time to find a replacement 🙂

    • Alzira Torres says:

      Thank you Jon.
      I was very frustaded about that!!!!
      It would not be fair for all


  17. Elina Balashova says:

    Where can we see the list of last badge hunt winners? I am not finding it anywhere.

  18. How long do the Badge Points last? Do they expire right away or can we hang on to them for awhile?

  19. Looks like there will be a bunch of scoreless 0 – 0 ties again for the regular season 6. IDEA – how about some kind of a one hour “shootout” sort of like in NHL hockey, so that some of the smaller or less talented teams could have something to play for? Just a thought!

  20. Tommy Andersen says:

    I see we have a ne thing BH………… Badgehunt
    I have a lot badgehunt point – have they any value- how to use them?

    • Jon Olson says:

      As each daily competition is Point vs Point….You can use your badge hunt points to add to your teams totals for the competitions.

    Everyone who won would have gotten the 5 bucks in their commissions.

    But we’ll set up a list of winners.
    I just think that every contest needs a closure, so posting the list of winners would mean that those who won were appreciated for taking part. I would like to congratulate winners and I dont even know who they are LOL.

    Hi Jon The season 5 team tournament payout is still pending. Here it is showing as paid but no payment is reflecting in my paypal account.Please recheck because this is the first time that payout from ctp is not reflecting in my paypal account.

  23. today – Sunday 17 th of April, at 6PM EST
    50 Teams plays 25 duels GREAT !!
    35 teams has ZERO points doing nothing
    thats sadly 70% of teams idle on list.
    Sad !!
    What can be done about that ?

  24. Ajay says:

    my team’s payout issue still unresolved jon/tim.i had sent a fresh mail couple of days back with attachment.Looking forward to the issue getting resolved soon 🙂

  25. Cheryl Fitzjohn says:

    i have been a member of swagbucks for long time but am been too busy with other stuff. how do i link swagbucks with ctp? i used a different email address there cause i didn’t have gmail then.

  26. Gary McKown says:

    Why can’t sponsors of Sub/Vault games, display the mines or keys while they are also doing the Eggs? Kind of messes you up when trying to qualify.

  27. Gary McKown says:

    I think everybody should use their points on a daily basis, instead of waiting till the play offs and then submitting them.Maybe they are claiming the points somewhere else instead of qualifying everyday. This is a way to make everybody surf the sponsors sites and not surfing elsewhere to claim xp/pts.
    Isn’t this why you raised the surfing so sponsors who pay money, get hits to their websites, and signups too?

  28. Ajay says:

    Tim I am still awaiting the team payout for my team’s winnings in season 5 tournament. There has been a lapse at your end and it’s very disappointing that despite me sending you across the snapshot of my paypal a/c too showing proof of non -payment of team cash you aren’t bothered to cross-check at your end and instead writing sarcastic comment like this on my mails “You can keep replying but I’ve already told you that it’s been paid.”

    Expecting you to get the payout issue of my team sorted out else there is no fun competing in tournament. Wonder why all of a sudden payout issue happens when team payout was due when I had been receiving regular payouts before that ,the last one being on 18th March.What should I tell my team members?
    Also there has been no issue with my paypal a/c as i am receiving regular payout from other Te’s. So its’ error at your end which you need to correct asap else I have no option but to pull out my team from this tournament and not waste their and my own valuable time

  29. Gary McKown says:

    What happens to all the teams and their players that haven’t qualified at all, all season, and have been stacking up XP?

  30. Cheryl Fitzjohn says:

    ok so i just got i to a team and only a few are quailifing. it the 28th. about swag bucks. been a member for years. tho even’t be too active cause of laptop shuts down when i plugged it and i can seem to get it opened to clean it out. (dust)
    where on we on playoffs? i barely have time to actually make sure i get ads out.

  31. Tommy Andersen says:

    To get “qualified” is to hard. Many teammembers have not qualified at all for weeks. It should be like this: All efforts should count for the team without having this qualifie thing. The competion is only for a few teams/members every day.

  32. libi says:

    is season game really gonna end on may 8th?
    feels very short season :O
    or is there another matches waiting for us before playoffs start?
    thank you 🙂

  33. Rather funny in a not funny way that TT dont feel the need to post anything or reply on posts for nearly a month…just saying.
    Ivolve Yourself someone once said!

  34. Rosy says:

    Wouldn’t it be better to abolish these daily qualifications? Since there are often site junk that won’t let the qualification because you don’t work? This happens almost every day and the patience of us surfer has a limit.

    • You may consider them junk sites but every owner who is in the mine game, K&V or holds the DC all paid to host the game. Wouldn’t it be nice if they got the visitors to their sites? As they paid for it.

  35. When does this season end?

    • Justin Ledvina says:

      Email was sent this morning about season ending and when playoffs begin. Thanks for everyone patience.
