Alphas Pile On Pressure To Climb Back To The Top

SurfAholics Alpha back on top of CTP Teams

SurfAholics Alpha were determined to make it back to the top of the Premier League this week despite the absence of their team leader.

Well maybe it was because of the absence of their team leader that they wanted to show him they could do good while he was on holiday.

To say that they left it until the last minute is understating things slightly. On Sunday they started the day in third position…and they were a long, long way behind.

They surfed hard, took advantage of bonuses, used a tactical Kore4 upgrade and shot into second place.

Getting to first place was harder than they might have imagined…and at one point it looked as they were going to fall just short of their target but they had timed it perfectly and rivals The Strays had to make to do with second spot.

It was an important week to win too, as we move into the final week of this current monthly challenge.

So this means, if my maths (or math if you prefer) is correct, and the numbers of teams does not change this week that the Alphas also win this month’s challenge as long as they finish in the top three this week.

The Strays could win the month if they finish first and as long as The Alphas finish fourth.

Lucky 13 could win the month if they finish first and both The Strays finish no higher than fifth and The Alphas finish no higher than eighth.

As a reminder of the monthly challenge end dates…I wrote this blog post on the subject.

As ever though…good luck to everyone and remember to always…have fun.

  1. We have proved why we are the best team in CTPTeams.WTG everybody!

  2. We showed what we’re made of! I’m so proud of you, awesome job.
    Our leader Matt was still there, in our thoughts, motivating us… and I can’t wait to see his facial expression once he comes back. 😀

    LOL, 4th or 8th place for Alphas make no sense, although it’s fine to give false hopes sometimes. 😛

    Pretty impressive last minute move by the SAs! I left the house about four hours before reset thinking I knew how the week was going to finish and when I got back home about three hours after reset, wow, what a surprise. Well played, SAs!

    Congrats to all

  21. Marye says:

    Congrats Alphas – with great strategies and teamwork you pulled it off 🙂

  22. Well I am disappointed to see some say the best Team, that is not the way I see. I am sure there are other teams out there equally as good just maybe not as many lunatics and they obviously live a life instead of worrying about their position on a ladder. Leave that to the professionals who compete in sports etc that is what they get paid for.

    I find it sad that some worry more about their teams position than having a real life, after all that is why you are born to live your life.

    Well done Alpha. Awesome job done by the strays.

  24. The Alphas show what it is to be on top of the mountain, or is that an Alpaca

  25. Ken Wolff says:

    Well you are going to win some and you are going to lose some but the best will always do there best no matter where they are on the ladder. The important thing is to maintain a balance in all that you do in life. I have said it before and I will say it again…get away from that computer from time to time and let some of us catch up…LOL

    All the best to all hard workers… cheers!
