We are into Week Three at CTP Teams and the numbers are looking good. The Seasonal Standings show that every single team has at least one point on the board which means that every team is taking part in the contest.
There is serious competition between teams in every division as players realise that their efforts really can make a difference this time round.
So now two weekly wins for SurfAholics Alphas in the Legacy Hits Division means that four other teams have to work super hard if they are to overtake them.
However their performance has absolutely no impact on any of the other divisions and teams can win or lose within their divisions based on their own performances.
So what do the early tables show?
The Legacy Division is the most stable so far…
|1||o||(1)||SurfAholics – Alpha (25/25)||10|
|2||o||(2)||Lucky 13 (25/25)||8|
|3||o||(3)||UBER SURFERS (24/25)||6|
|5||o||(5)||The Cash Surfing Network (24/25)||2|
The teams finished the first two weeks in exactly the same positions so it will be interesting to see whether they will settle into the same routine for three weeks in a row. That would certainly suit the Alphas but the other teams in this division will want things to change.
In the Pharaoh’s Army Division it is not the same picture.
|2||+1||(3)||Strays Team Bee (25/25)||7|
|3||-1||(2)||Dream Team (25/25)||6|
|4||o||(4)||BEGINNERS and WINNERS (23/25)||5|
|5||o||(5)||In To Win (23/25)||2|
While Renegades have won for two weeks in a row, Strays Team Bee swapped positions with Dream Team and this is going to be a very competitive division indeed by the looks of things.
Things are a little closer in the Ragin’ Redneck Division.
|1||+1||(2)||Living Wealthy (23/25)||9|
|2||-1||(1)||Ultimate Surf Warriors (22/25)||9|
|4||o||(4)||Surf Lovers (25/25)||5|
|5||o||(5)||The Strays (15/20)||2|
There is nothing to separate Living Wealthy and Ultimate Surf Warriors at the top while both AdKreator and Surf Lovers have the same amount of season points too. The Strays are still finding this division a little tough but there is still lots of time for them to shine.
Over at the SiteXplosion Division there is also a very intense competition going on.
|2||+1||(3)||The Badge Seekers (8/10)||6|
|3||-1||(2)||Lucky 13 Too (14/25)||6|
|4||o||(4)||WealthBuilders 2.0 (7/20)||6|
|5||o||(5)||Dark Clickers (14/15)||2|
Right now Hunters are the most highly skilled at hunting down team points but nothing separates the next three teams as Badge Seekers, Lucky 13 Too and WealthBuilders 2.0 all have six points a piece. Dark Clickers will need to click some more to have an impact on this division.
In the G PowerSurf Division it is another story again.
|1||+1||(2)||Team Wealthy (4/20)||9|
|2||-1||(1)||Riders on the Storm (14/25)||8|
|3||o||(3)||Anime Art (19/25)||7|
|4||o||(4)||Affiliate Prosperity (15/15)||4|
|5||o||(5)||Dynamite Surfers (9/15)||2|
Team Wealthy have a one point lead over Riders on the Storm who, in turn, have a one point lead over Anime Art. They are making it difficult for the bottom two teams to move higher but this is a long season and teams may find their early advantage being eroded as other teams switch tactics and start playing harder.
At the Wealth Builder Division we see a very similar points pattern to that of the SiteXplosion Division.
|1||+1||(2)||Surf to Earn (18/20)||9|
|2||+2||(4)||Indulge Yourself (15/20)||6|
|3||o||(3)||SurfAholics – Bravo (12/25)||6|
|4||-3||(1)||Easy Team (13/25)||6|
|5||o||(5)||BAD Surfers (15/15)||3|
Surf to Earn are in the lead with nine points but the next three teams all have six points and Bad Surfers have three at the foot of the table.
The Cup of Traffic Division shows the most variation, which given the potentially unlimited numbers of teams it contains, explains why.
Here winning a week can make all the difference to the points and every team still has everything to play for. OfOnePlusOne are in the lead after a consistently good start but they are by no means safe at the top. Consistency over time is the key for CTP Teams and this applies right through the entire contest.
Welcome to Week Three and have fun.
