Top 100 Players Tab at CTP Teams

The blue button which lets you see the Top 100 CTP Teams players is back.

This shows the players within CTP Teams who have individually collected the most points for their respective teams so this is a great leaderboard to be on.

It is even better now that Jon has announced the trialling of a new cash prize for individual players for Season Three…collecting XP is now both rewarding for your team and potentially very rewarding for you as an individual.

It is being trialled this week to see how popular it is and, if successful, then the new CTP XP Weekly Cash Giveaway could be a weekly feature for this season.

What happened was that Jon, who is not a massive gambler, still managed to end up $100 in profit after his recent trip to Las Vegas…so he wants to give that cash away to CTP Teams members.

Jon announced the new development at a special midnight edition of TELive at midnight to mark the start of Week Four.

So here is how it works…

The team points earned each week are obviously earned by individual members doing tasks to gain XP. Remember that XP can be awarded for many more ways than just surfing traffic exchanges so there is a huge potential to collect it.

So this week we want to reward the top three players who bring in the most weekly points for their teams as follows…

top points earner – $70

second placed points earner – $20

third placed points earner – $10

The winners will be decided by the places on the Top 100 leaderboard at the end of this week, ie 12.59.59 Eastern this coming Sunday night.

If you like this then we can do it again and again every week with cash prizes up for grabs on a weekly basis. It might not be $100 every week but we will keep you informed on this blog on what will be happening.

Remember that this is in addition to the $5,000 season prize pot, so as well as these additional prizes there will still be that cool 5k totally untouched and up for grabs at the end of the season.

Are you on the Top 100 leaderboard. Check it out now to see.

An honorable mention here to Russell Stockley from the Cup of Traffic Division who has already sent an email to his list about this latest development. This is what being on the ball is all about. Well done Russell.

SurfAholics Alpha trophy count at end of S2 W8

After one of the most controversial weeks in CTP Teams, SurfAholics Alpha took the Premier League by a landslide to end their four week spell without a win.

Terry Allison’s team won by 45.8 billion points to 25.0 billion points earned by second placed Uber Surfers in a week which saw Lucky 13 come in third with 7.6 billion points.  (The top eight teams broke the billion point barrier last week.)

In fact the scale of the win was so huge that there were calls for the Alphas to divulge exactly what their team strategy was and explain how they won.

There was even a call for the Alphas to be investigated to determine whether they had broken any rules and a whisper that this was team that TimTech wanted to win.

So let me make it absolutely crystal clear to everyone. TimTech does not support or favor any one team over any other, does not give extra help an any team and nor does it seek to hinder the performance of any team.

If SurfAholics Alpha want to tell the world what they did last week that is up to them, but if they choose to keep their team tactics to themselves then that is also up to them. The same applies to every other team within the contest.

Season Two points table as of end of S2 W8

So as we move into the penultimate week of this season – we are now into week nine of ten for Season Two – there is still everything to play for.

Both Alphas and Ubers are tied on 516 points and Lucky 13 are in third place with 507 points. Looks like it is going to be a rather explosive end to Season Two. Good luck everyone and have fun.




Lucky 13 Win CTP Teams S2 W7 contest

There is no doubt that Lucky 13 went all out to win last weeks CTP Teams contest…and win it they did.

Former team leader Tom Wacker said as much as his show a week ago today and the team put all they had into securing victory.

It is the first time in season two that any team other than Uber Surfers or SurfAholics Alpha has come in first. Alphas won the first three weeks, Ubers won the next three and Lucky 13 have claimed week seven.

I had an idea that this would be a fiercely fought contest and I was right. All through the weekend the top two teams flip flopped on the leaderboard as no sooner did one gain a slight advantage than the other took it away again.

There was to be no run-away victory again this week and while, at one point, it looked as though the Ubers had done enough to claim victory, Lucky 13 snatched it at the end.

Tom Wacker, writing in the Lucky 13 blog today, said: “It was an epic, hard fought battle, but the L13 beat out the Ubers and SAA to win their first week of the season.  It was really, really close, and wasn’t finally decided until the very stroke of midnight.

“I couldn’t be more proud to be a member of Lucky 13 this week.  We took on the challenge and every single member busted a gut to achieve our goal.  What an effort and what a week. It was a very good run, and we can be proud of ourselves as a team.  We really did well.”

There was, once again, a huge points gap between the top three teams and the rest of the pack. CSN came in a comfortable fourth but the points spread in the teams immediately below them was relatively narrow.

Dream Team, Beginners and Winners and In To Win all moved up a league yesterday; they had their places taken by The Strays, Surf Lovers and Bad Surfers.

We are now into  week eight of the current season which means there are just three more weeks to go. Right now the top of the Season Points table looks like this:

1. Uber Surfers – 451 points

2. SurfAholics Alpha – 450 points

3. Lucky 13 – 443 points

4. Renegades – 430 points

5. Cash Surfing Network – 424 points

So as we enter a new week, keep going strong no matter where you happen to be in CTP Teams and, above all, have fun.

See you all for TELive at 4pm Eastern. Hope you can make it.

Alphas and Ubers level on season points as we enter week seven for season two on CTP Teams

As we enter week seven in Season Two of CTP Teams there is absolutely nothing to separate the top two teams which remain level in every way.

SurfAholics Alpha and Uber Surfers both have three weekly wins and three second places under their belts which leaves them both in joint first place on the Season Points table.

Lucky 13 – which has consistently come in at third place for each of the last six weeks – is, not surprisingly, also in third place on the Seasons Points table.

Uber Surfers has amassed a larger number of bonuses during the season, so right now at least, it does look to be the stronger of the top two teams. That is not to say that an Uber victory is guaranteed as anything could happen in CTP Teams.

This week Lucky 13 has started strongly and at the time of writing (9.30am Eastern) the team is just shy of one billion points. Ubers have passed the half a billion points mark already and the Alphas are closing in on it.

There has been a huge start also this week for Dream Team which is top of the Competitive League and is outperforming many Premier League teams right now to move up to fifth place overall.

It will come as no surprise to anyone that the OutKasts – the team that can never win – didn’t win last week’s contest after all. We came in 16th overall and that is where we remain right now.

No matter where you are in CTP Teams, have a great week ahead everybody. Good luck and remember to have fun.

Top Five in CTP Teams at end of S2 W6 D7

Uber Surfers took more than just top honors when they wrapped up the week in first place yesterday…

They also took SurfAholics Alpha team member Howard Fullmer from their main rivals and welcomed him on board with open arms.

Now – at the half way point in this season’s contest – the Alphas have just the narrowest of leads – as they are just one point clear of Ubersurfers.

Lucky 13 came in third yesterday and are also third on the season’s leaderboard. Cash Surfing Network were fourth last week and Renegades fifth, however their positions are reversed in the season points table.

Dream Team, Ultimate Surf Warriers and Adkreator move up to the top league this week and have been replaced by The Strays, WealthBuilders and TERacing League.

So now as we are into the second half of the season let’s see if we can make it as fun and exciting as the first half was…something tells me this will not be too much of a problem. Have fun everyone.



At one point yesterday it looked like the Uber Surfers had build up such a strong lead over SurfAholics Alpha that another weekly win was in the bag.

While many other eyes were gripped by something called The Super Bowl, a kind of sporting event where performers dress as sharks and chess pieces and the singer Katy Perry pretends to be a giant tiger, the real drama was taking place at CTP Teams.

I wish I could describe it to you in blow-by-blow detail but I missed it all – being on the ‘wrong’ side of the Atlantic does have its drawbacks.

One moment it looked like this…

Ubers Ahead OF SAAs in CTP Teams

And the next, like this…

SAAs win S2 W4 at CTP Teams

What happened in between is a mystery to me but it seems as dramatic as any Super Bowl, with or without the giant tigers and dancing sharks.

So if you were there then please leave a comment and fill me in on what went on.

That makes it three weeks to the Alphas and one to the Ubers and Lucky 13 have now notched up four third place finishes this season.

So is it all over for Season Two…not a bit of it. The league table is very close indeed as this screenshot shows:

CTP Teams Season Two table screenshot

Just two points in it at the top of the table.

So as we enter Season Two Week Five, I can see that throughout both leagues many teams are already starting very strongly indeed. Have a great week everyone and, as ever, have fun as you take part.

Ubers top CTP Teams Premier League at end of S2 W3

As winning streaks go, it is another CTP Teams record for SurfAholics Alpha…19 week unbeaten run at the top of the CTP Teams Premier League.

However all winning streaks must eventually end and Week Three of Season Two saw the Alphas dislodged from first place by on-form Uber Surfers.

The Uber Surfers were in first place for most of the week, were pushed back to second as the Alphas pushed forward for the win but snatched the lead back towards the end of play.

Lucky 13 took third place once again, with Renegades fourth and CSN fifth.

Hits WorkForce, Ultimate Surf Warriors and In To Win all moved up from the Competitive League and were replaced by TE Racing League, The Strays and Surf Lovers.

As we enter Week Four of Season Two it is very tight at the top of the Season Table with Alphas just one point ahead of the Ubers and Lucky 13, five points off the lead in third place.

The Top Ten on the Season Table looks like this:

Season Points in CTP Teams at the end of S2 W3

So once again as we enter a new week at CTP Teams, good luck everyone and have fun.

CTP TEams Premier League top three at end of S2 W2

They have a new leader for the new season at CTP Teams and SurfAholics Alpha have already made their intentions known.

With two wins in the first two weeks, it looks like they want to claim this season every bit as much as they wanted Season One, which they won comfortably.

Interestingly this week, (well interesting for numbers fans at least) the Alphas finished about 1.5 billion points ahead of second placed Uber Surfers which, in turn, finished about 1.5 billion points ahead of third placed Lucky 13 which was also about 1.5 billion points ahead of fourth placed Renegades.

We also said goodbye to Kore4 which disbanded last week after some internal differences but I am sure many of its former members will find homes on other teams.

Very little separated fifth place Dream Team, Cash Surfing Network in sixth and seventh place WealthBuilders last week.

It was even closer for The Strays and Surf Lovers in places eight and nine but there was a significant gap between those two teams and tenth placed TE Racing League.

So now we are in week three of season two and the Premier League is back to its full compliment of ten teams with CSN, The Strays and the TE Racers all moving up from the Competitive League.

As there were only nine teams in the top league at the end of last week it was just the bottom two which moved down a league this week – Hunters and Surf To Earn.

Lucky 13 Too finished in 25th place overall last week, in their first week in the contest; now with three members it will be interesting to see what they can do this week.

As always, have a great week ahead on CTP teams and remember to have fun, build relationships and work together as a team.

CTP Teams S2 w1 top five winners

In the end it was a rather easy win for SurfAholics Alpha as they got Season Two off to a dream start by claiming top spot in the Premier League.

And with a 12 billion point gap over second placed Uber Surfers it was a fairly dramatic opening statement.

Lucky 13 came in third but Kore4 was not that far behind them and there was another big gap between fourth place and fifth placed Renegades.

A few hours into week two and we find Ubers in third behind Lucky 13 in second and Alphas still out in front. Alphas are the only team to one billion points already but that situation won’t last for too long.

Dream Team are in fourth place and fifth placed WealthBuilders are doing very well – having moved up from the Competitive League this week.

Finally the Season Points table is now active with the positions the teams finished in yesterday determining how many points they received.

Given that the last placed team gets one point, the second last team gets two points etc then the placings for the Season Points table is exactly the same as the order the teams have finished in as shown by the Last Week Standings table.

As ever good luck to every team this week and have fun.

CTP Teams Premier League as we enter last week of the first season at CTP Teams

These days it seems that it is not just winning that is enough for SurfAholics Alpha…but winning big. With the first ever season in CTP teams reaching its thrilling finale this team is springing towards the finish line.

On Sunday night they had amassed ten billion more team points than second placed Uber Surfers as Lucky 13 were once more left having to make do with third place.

We are now into the last full week of this marathon season in CTP Teams which has grown steadily stronger as the months have passed since it was launched earlier this year.

I certainly never thought I would have so much to write about and next year promises to be just as exciting as this year has been.

Remember the seasons will be a lot shorter next year to give everyone a chance to battle for the top and I can’t wait to see how that plays out.

As ever…good luck everyone and have fun.
