Second transfer and draft window newest on top

That question actually has two answers, Aragonite.

1.) You have the chance to increase the wage and optionally also contract length of four riders during the transfer windows. These do not influence your draft picks, and whether and if so how many of these four options you actully take advantage of is squarely up to you.

2.) During the draft you can use a draft pick to increase the wage and optionally also length of the contract of one of the riders in your squad, but you forfeit the chance of signing a rider with that draft pick if so.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Tuesday 24.Apr 15:08, 2018
Does increasing the wage of a rider count as one of your transfers? Or are they 'free'?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Tuesday 24.Apr 10:01, 2018
Rules for the second draft:
New managers will have 7 draft picks each and will also have the possilibility to expand their squad size to 32 for the second half of the season, compared to 30 for existing managers. Beware that the extra two riders will have to be on contracts ending at the end of this season.

Existing managers will have 5 draft picks.

As per previously stated the transfer window will open as soon as the Giro is done May 27th and the draft will start at 19:00 CET June 1st.

All managers can extend length/increase wage on 4 existing contracts if they'd like - has to be done in the transfer window.

@zKobalt : fixed.

Unrelated, but can we also get the rider rankings updated for the current 2018 season as well please under rankings.

Say we give the new managers 2 extra drafts:
The problem then is that those who currently have 25 riders can max out at 30 and get no benefit from it. So to treat all the new managers equally, I'd propose to increase the rider limit for them to 32 until new year.
What they then lack in quality vs. the old managers can be somewhat compensated by quantity.

Me too.

Iím with EPO about this.

I think it should be kept at 5 drafts for the old managers. Because bumping it up to 6 only helps those who have few riders (because they set stupid wages, didn't renew enough contracts etc.), while those who've played "correctly" and are now at ~27 riders will max out at 30 regardless. And then the new managers can get 5+2 or whatever.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Monday 26.Feb 19:07, 2018
Should read the complete thread before commenting. I have repeated EPO virtually word for word. Apologies.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Monday 26.Feb 19:03, 2018
Looking like we can use all the help we can get. Five of the bottom six points scorers are the new teams.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Monday 26.Feb 18:52, 2018
I suggest 6 drafts for existing managers, 8 for the new ones.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Monday 26.Feb 17:49, 2018

The new managers are at 20, 22, 22, 24, 25 and 25 riders.
With the regular 5 drafts each, a couple of them could max out at the 30 limit. Everyone will probably suffer a couple of steals, but not necessarily.
So giving them extra drafts could be beneficial only for the ones with few riders, making it unfair between the 6 new managers, unless we also allow them to have up to 32-33 riders until new year.

That list lies a little, since most teams are gonna pass the current leader before next window. Still your point is valid.

5 of the new teams are in the bottom 6 currently, so they should probably get some handicap

Give me one name who is more deserved that spot than Valgren, a known Luxembourg Finest lover

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Monday 26.Feb 12:21, 2018
I thought you had reverted to being a pure legacy-team.

Typical Kjeppen to not know the rules of minimum 20 riders :D 2 bulmers in penalty thanks

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Monday 26.Feb 11:39, 2018
I wasn't aware that you actually had any riders left, Andy ;D

When do I get the Valgren offer?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Monday 26.Feb 11:28, 2018
Hi all,

As par previous years, the second transfer and draft window will be held in the week after the Giro.

The transfer window will open on May 27th as soon as the Giro is finished. All riders can be traded plus all managers can increase wages/extend contract length with a set number of riders.

The transfer window ends at 19:00 CET on Friday June 1st when the draft starts. As in January, we'll have time limits on draft picks on Friday and Saturday evening to get all done in two evenings. Draft order is the reverse team standings on June 1st.

I'll be back on number of extensions plus number of drafts as we'll have to see how the new managers are getting on at the point in the season and whether they should get some extra drafts if they are doing badly in general.

Hope everyone are able to participate in person that weekend, if not I'll happily go a set list as i did more or less ably for JohnJackJoe, zKobalt and Fjellda among others in parts of the January-draft.
