Category: Hurricane Season

I’m not sure I can completely describe what we just witnessed…

But I’ll try!

The Hurricane Season came to a close a few minutes ago with a mammoth come from behind win in the last few seconds of the season.

With about 10 seconds left to go, We Are Family looked to have the championship all but won.

However with one of the gutsiest calls in CTP Teams history, Phoenix literally…Rose from the ashes!

Trailing by a huge margin, they unleashed the beast and took home the championship.

Well played Phoenix, so well well played.

A huge congrats must also go to We Are Family, who without a doubt were the story of the playoffs, rising to the challenge and giving it their all.

And to all the teams that made these playoffs a joy to watch and take part in. Congrats to all.

And with the introduction to our Competitive Division….We saw Team Cruisin’ Along win the Competitive title!

Hopefully they will move up into the big leagues next season because let’s be honest….They have what it takes for sure to compete!

Rest up everyone! A well deserved off season is at hand but rest assured, Phoenix will be back to defend their title in the next season of CTP Teams!

Stay tuned….

Round 1 is over and we’re gearing up for the second round in this seasons playoffs.

And unlike the NBA playoffs, there is no guarantees now!

Here are this rounds match ups;

#1 Seed – The Cavalry VS #8 Seed – Lucky 13

It’s been a remarkable season for the Cavalry. A team that didn’t exist last season has been crushing it all season long. However they are in super tough against one of the premier teams in CTP Teams history in Lucky 13. Will experience prevail? Or does the dream season continue for the Cavalry?

#5 Seed – SurfAholics Alpha VS #4 Seed – Phoenix

The legends are about to bump heads! Two of the most storied franchises in CTP Teams history are about to do battle in an all out war to see who moves onto the third round. Expect a nail biter match up that could come down to the very last second…

#6 Seed – Cash Surfing Network VS #3 Seed – Uber Surfers

Both teams put up over 1 billion points each in the first round, so we can expect even more points being earned in the 2nd round. These two juggernauts are in for a duel. With CSN continue their reign in CTP Teams or do the Ubers have something big in store…We shall see!

#7 Seed – Eager Beaver Team Builders VS #2 Seed – We Are Family

This should be one of the most intriguing match ups of the second round. We Are Family had a remarkable season and we’re seeing some massive wins from them over the past few weeks. However Eager Beaver are on a mission! Will they continue to shock the world, or does the ‘Family’ pull through?

It all gets answered….Tonight at midnight eastern as the second round begins. Good luck to everyone.

Apologies for the lack of communication during the past week leading up to the playoffs. As many of you may know, I’ve been away on some family issues and haven’t been able to keep up with all the excitement on the end of the season.

That said, the playoffs are here!

After a fun and exciting Hurricane Season, the top teams in both the premier and competitive divisions are locked in over the next week and a half to claim victory!

We’ve got some intense battles lined up and as we’re into Round 1 right now, we’ll start to see some great matches over the next few days.

Who will win?

Will Cavalry continue to shock the world? How about We Are Family and their resurgence throughout the season. Will CSN repeat their success?

So many questions and we will get our answers soon enough!

Good luck to all the teams and we’ll see you at the finish line!

In the season of CTP Teams, we decided to do something a little different at the mid way point to the season.

We’re introducing our first ever All Star Game where the Top 20 players from the first half compete for All Star Supremacy! (Based on total promo points collected over the first half.)

And it all starts this Saturday, April 8th!

Here are your line up’s for both squads, congrats to all our All Stars!

For everyone else….Rest, relax, enjoy your time off…Because once the All Star Game is done, we’re back to the Hurricane Season and it’s second half.

Good luck to everyone!



Well it wouldn’t be a new season of CTP Teams without a hiccup or two….

Good news, everything is fixed and ready to rock. We apologize for this latest mishap and in hindsight we shouldn’t have started the season on a Friday. Lesson learned!

Now we have a little bit of news that I described in the video about but here is the nitty gritty…

All Vault N Key promos are now worth 2 POINTS, rather than 1.

Here’s our reasoning behind this…

The Daily Challenge and Sub Games are lightyears ahead in popularity for surfers to complete. Surfers are claiming points quicker at 35 page views and 50 page views so we need to spice things up a bit.

Instead of taking away points which would send everything into a tail spin, at midnight tonight all Vaults that are claimed will be worth 2 points.

This hopefully levels the playing field for all the scoring and adds more excitement for our promo partners and surfers that enjoy the Vaults.

Hope you guys enjoy the changes….So far, the season looks like it’ll be a HUGE win!

Huge Update: The Season Starts At 10am, March 3rd….

Here we go…The 9th season of CTP Teams is here and this is the result of 8 seasons of competition, to deliver you the most exciting surfing competition in the industry!

We heard you loud and clear and we hope you enjoy the changes for this next season of CTP Teams:

HURRICANE SEASON START: March 3rd at 10am Eastern

HURRICANE SEASON END: May 16th

PLAYOFFS BEGIN: May 19th

The Details, Rules and Juicy Stuff….

We’re using the same scoring system as the previous season. This seemed to be the best way to score the daily competitions and made it as even as can be for all the teams. To win you match ups, your team simply completes more promos that your competition. That earns you a win.

The Big Change Part 1

We have a schedule set up for the season and YES…… Teams will be having days off. We heard you loud and clear!

The Big Change Part 2

As the scoring will be the same as last season, the biggest issue was that well…Some teams are just absolute powerhouses.

So we needed a way that EVERY team felt like they could compete, but still allow the power house teams to compete as much as they do!

Going off some great suggestions (Rob Paris, thank you for your ideas!) we are going to go with two divisions similar to the first season of CTP Teams;

The Premiere and The Competitive Divisions

The Premiere Division will have the teams that have over 11 members in them. These teams will compete against each other multiple times throughout the season but will NOT go against teams in the Competitive Division.

The Competitive Division will go against teams with 10 members or less and will not compete versus teams in the Premiere Division.

What Does This Mean For The Playoffs?

Two ‘playoffs and two finals for both divisions 🙂

The Big Change Part 3

The season will have teams playing a total of 50 games with a few breaks for Easter and Mother’s Day sprinkled throughout…But the big change will be the introduction of ‘The All Star Game’ in the mid point of the season (April 7-9). This is going to be an absolute blast and we’ll have more details about that as we get closer to it 🙂

But What About XP?

Glad you asked! Yes, XP will play a huge role in the season because as you read above…We’re basing each competition with points. Earn points by completing a promo AND trading in your XP….To earn one point you can trade 1 Million CTP XP and bam, your team has an extra point. This is why the Season Pass Multiplier is critical….Read on…

The Season Pass Individual Multiplier

This seasons’s special multiplier will be sponsored by Justin, Tim and Jon….It’s the CTP Season Pass Multiplier! Grab a Hurricane Season Pass through this link and we’ll give your team a 7x multiplier for all XP earned…

The Season Pass Team Multiplier

Want to give your WHOLE team a HUGE bonus….Check out the brand new ‘League Pass’ where every single member of your team gets a 9x Multiplier!

Already got a 7x multiplier?

Not a problem….That’s ADDED to your bonuses as well!

The Daily Competitions

We heard you loud and clear and we hope you guys love the changes. We listened to your recommendations and this is the formula we came up with from your suggestions from previous seasons! Again, last season we think we found a very good ‘comfortable medium’ for everyone!

– Get rid of the massive subscriber bonuses and bonuses for purchasing.
– Focus more on surfing, this helps the surfers and the promo partners
– Implement the two divisions again to level the playing field and let people actually compete for positions daily!

We hope you enjoy the changes and are as excited as we are to CRUSH IT with the Hurricane Season!

*Please note – There may be changes during the season. We do our best to provide a fun and exciting environment for competition. However we reserve the right to change things up as needs be. With that said, we do our best to never do massive changes in the middle of the season. Crossing our fingers, but we think this is the best set up we’ve ever done because of YOUR feedback and participation!
