I really didn’t mean to have quite such a dramatic effect on The Sweeva Surf Party. I mean killing the thing dead in the final minute when there was so much to play for was never my intention.
How was I to know my splash page (above) would be the last to be shown? But I guess it had that certain something every advertiser wants…to get their page seen and noticed and to be memorable. It is just that I don’t want to be forever known as the guy who killed the Sweeva Surf Party.
As events go this one had its fair share of drama, even without me creating drama of my own. It was different to recent Sweeva Surf Parties in that the team contest was a three way battle from start to finish with no single team really dominating events as before.
CSN, SurfAholics Alpha and CTP Renegades all set out with the ambition of winning the team event and they all kept up relentless pressure from start to finish. There was hardly more than a point or two separating these three teams at any given point and CTP Masters also featured very strongly in the team contest.
Lucky 13, a team which has dominated in the past, were not serious contenders this week at all. Could it be that their team members were otherwise engaged with the launch of a new traffic exchange? It looks like they spent the day playing in the sunshine.
This is the first week since the new look Sweeva Surf Party was revamped to include a CTP Teams event, that Lucky 13 have not finished in the top three. For those who like statistics, they finished fourth this week with 12 page views while Uber Surfers finished fifth with four page views.
The individual event, dramatically cut short by a minute right at the end, was also amazingly close – just three page views separated the top three.
A lot of Sweeva credits were converted into XP – remember that for the duration of the SSP all credits spent on pages being seen get converted to XP as another bonus for those taking part.
1. CSN – 32 page views
= 2. SurfAholics Alpha and CTP Renegades – 28 page views
3. CTP Masters – 17 page views
1. Matt Badura – 13 page views
2. Norbert Ladner – 11 page views
3. Jeremiah Johnson – 10 page views
Let’s do it all again next week and I promise not to kill it early…I just better remember to turn off my splash page in Sweeva right now…
