Fun with Numbers or Where do XP Come From

Math showed in this work is based on information found on CTP Teams Playoffs page as well as individual Teams pages.

Calculations are made using current bonus structure for each team, which provides for not so accurate numbers. For Example Lucky 13 % varied from 8336% – 8613% and are now more than that (I believe that is true for all other teams shown here).

I made this post to address the issue that semi finals and finals were as interesting to watch as watching paint dry. And to address ever lasting argument of surfing v. buying.

I will concentrate only on teams that advanced from 1 round of playoffs.

I assume every team’s goal is to gain as much XP in as short time as possible, so final numbers will be as if battery was on for every member at all times.

Below are the actions that will yield most XP not taking in account ListNerds, Vault’N’Keys and Subs. I will not use promos or ListNerds in these calculations because of their randomness as they give away 50-1000 XP (for ListNerds) and 1000-50,000 XP (for Vault’N’Keys).

Surfing DC = 50+100+250+500+1000 (on badges) 1000+5000+10,000+25,000+50,000 (on Tiers)
=   92,900 XP
Surfing 4 TimTech sites for 100,000 XP badge = 4x(50+100+250+500+1000+100,000)
407,600 XP
NerdSurfing (if you are doing 4 TimTechSites at the same Time) 100+250+500+1000+2000
=     3,850 XP

TOTAL                    =    504,350 XP
With Battery            = 1,008,700 XP
Kore4 With Battery = 4,034,800 XP

1. Phoenix           
(Current Bonus = 10,096%) (Members = 18 Kore4,  7 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 889,342,260,428) (8 playing days)

2. Lucky 13
(Current Bonus =  8,816%) (Members = 20 Kore4,  5 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 378,847,555,776) (8 playing days)

3. Uber Surfers
(Current Bonus =  7,614%) (Members = 15 Kore4,  5 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 230,391,475,970) (6 playing days)

4. SurfAholics
(Current Bonus =  9,846%) (Members = 18 Kore4,  7 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 398,870,538,620) (6 playing days)

5. CSN
(Current Bonus = 25,994%) (Members = 16 Kore4,  9 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 185,846,120,497) (4 playing days)

6. Renegades
(Current Bonus =  7,552%) (Members = 16 Kore4,  9 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 241,567,622,744) (4 playing days)

7. WealthBuilders
(Current Bonus =  4,580%) (Members = 11 Kore4, 11 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs =  97,325,759,529) (4 playing days)

8. In to Win
(Current Bonus =  5,408%) (Members =  9 Kore4, 11 non Kore4) (Total XP won in Playoffs = 106,583,460,990) (4 playing days)

I will assume every member in each team did all the actions listed above on each playing day.
I will assume 25% of total XP won was won by Spinning the wheels, doing Vault’N’Keys, Subs, Eggs of XP)
You decide on which side of equation to put TimTech Rewards Points as they can be accumulated previously as well as gotten during the Playoffs.
I will round up or down every bonus to the closest round number,

From this point on all numbers except Total XP won in Playoffs are just an estimate tho I believe I’m not too much off.

Q.E.D.

Sagan, Warhol and other zillions

Since the beginning of CTP teams approximately -2/3 (minus two thirds) Friedman ago our team hanged on the third place in this competition (with exception of two second and one 1st place). To the untrained eye it would seem as if our team got so comfortable being in the 3rd place that we don’t plan to move anywhere from it. In reality we were constantly moving forward beard-second per mouse click. However, exact gazillion of mickeys needed to get us to the first place may never be known.

We are the first team that earned fraction of sagan XP in a week in this competition, which must have boosted our fame by at least couple of kilowarhols.

Where to now? Our plan is to maintain this position for the Friedman and 1/3rd and earn at least firkin sagan of XP more.

For those of you that are still wondering how we managed to get to the fraction of sagan, our team is willing to share that info at a rate of approximately 1/24 dirac.
