I hope everyone really enjoyed our 102 hours of crazy deals for the Black Friday 2014 event which ended at midnight last night.
There were lots of bargains to be had and I am sure you will be putting them all to good use. The only real casualty of the event was the planned 102 hour live streaming thanks to the new maximum broadcast limits imposed by Spreecast, but we worked around it with daily eight hour shows instead. Thanks to everyone who took part in the shows and a special thanks to everyone who decided to host their own shows in the TELive room during the event.
This community is full of really awesome people and it is great knowing you all.
So back to the way that the Black Friday deals continue to impact on CTP Teams…well just the quickest of quick glances at the leaderboards will be enough of a clue for anyone…the numbers continue to be totally insane. (If these numbers spoke they would speak like one of the rather strange voices that Tim used to use in some of the CTP training videos – that is how crazy they are!)
It is only just Tuesday and already the Alphas have more than 50 billion points – they look set to easily become the first team in CTP history to get 100 billion points, as predicted by Tom Wacker a few days ago.
Tom’s team, Lucky 13, sitting in second place with 28.1 billion points, could also break that barrier before the week is out. If my math is correct then, at current rates, the Alphas should break the 100 billion barrier as early as tomorrow while Lucky 13 should do so sometime on Friday and none of the other teams can score this high. Hopefully that prediction won’t come back to haunt me too badly.
The top three teams in the Competitive League (TE Racing League, Surf Lovers and Strays Team Bee) each currently have more points than the bottom two in the Premier League (Dream Team and Bonz Brigade) but there is still a long way to go for many more changes as the week progresses.
As ever good luck to everyone in CTP Teams and have fun.
