Tiered Surf Badges Now Contain Bonus XP

Tiered CTP surf badges

It is pretty cool to get the tiered surf badges and they really do look awesome on your CTP badge collection.

But these badges have just got even more awesome. They were tired of just looking pretty sitting around on your profile page waiting for you to view them.

They wanted to contribute more and to feel really part of the CTP community. It all started when the Surf 50 badge from ILH called Larry on the support line.

This is what happened:

Larry: “Hi TimTech, Larry speaking.”

ILH Surf 50 badge: “I feel a bit depressed to be honest Larry.”

Larry: “Why ILH Surf 50 badge?”

ILH Surf 50 badge: “Well the XP badges pick on me all the time and call me rude names. They say they are cooler than us non-XP badges and they say people love them more.”

ILH Surf 50 badge: “Larry. Do people love the XP badges more?”

Larry: “Well people love different badges in different ways. Pay no attention to those other XP badges.”

ILH Surf 50 badge: “Larry, could we have XP too? Please Larry! Please!!! Could we? Could we?”

Larry, overcome with compassion, waved a magic wand in the Kingdom of TimTech. With a flourish, like a magician pulling a rabbit from a hat, he waved it once, twice, thrice and the TimTech Tiered Surf Badges all gained instant XP.

So now when you collect the 50, 100, 250, 500, 1,000 and 2,500 badges at ILH, Sweeva, ThumbVu and StartXchange you will also gain that amount of XP…four times the amount if you are Kore 4.

Larry was about to relax to mark a job well done when he noticed there was still some charge left in his wand.

He tapped it on the table in front of him, rather gingerly at first and then with more force, and bright stars of purple and silver burst from its tip. Larry’s dog was so astonished that it hid under the desk and refused to come out for several hours.

But what did this do…

Well it allowed the same magic to happen to other thered surf badges outside of the TimTech exchanges.

Because the charge was not as strong as first time round, it only works for the 50, 100, 250, 500 and 1,000 badges at outside traffic exchanges.

And traffic exchange owners have to go here to make them work.

In addition to the four TimTech sites the XP Tiered Surf Badges are already available at the following traffic exchanges (with more to follow as news spreads):

  • Lobby Hits
  • TE Racing League
  • Powercash Stream
  • TopHits4U
  • Clicking Success
  • TrafficRUs
  • TrafficPharaoh
  • Surf Skeleton
  • Legacy Hits
  • Sea Life Hits
  • Top Flight Traffic
  • Traffic At The Races
  • Site Xplosion
  • Traffic Dodgems
  • Cup of Traffic
  • WealthBuilder Hits


Within about an hour of this move being announced on TELive I spotted the first splash page promoting the new XP badges for Sea Life Hts
