I'm up for fixing it :)

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Thursday 19.Jul 20:28, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
tier 1 (120 pts): belgium, italy, france, spain
tier 2 (80 pts): netherlands, germany, australia, colombia
tier 3 (50 pts): great britain, norway, usa, switzerland
tier 4 (30 pts): ...
tier 5 (15 pts): ...

the TT would (generally) be worth a % of the RR numbers above.

if next year froome, geraint and the other sky boys show up for the nationals then great britain moves up to tier 2. if fuglsang, valgren etc race the denmark nationals then it belongs in tier 3 rather than tier 4, and so on. it needs to be adjusted (a little bit) from year to year based on startlist quality. manually, until a more automated solution is in place.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Thursday 19.Jul 20:14, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
The problem with that is that for example Great Britain would have a high ranking, but the best riders (Sky) don't even bother racing the nationals, so the GB nationals would give too many points.
There are similar examples, like Denmark this year. An automated solution would rather have to take into account the FC ranking of the riders that are actually on the startlist.

I posted a non-automated, simple suggestion in the admin forum that would work quite well.
And this was also discussed 2 years ago. But of course, nothing has happened... And nothing will happen for a very long time if we don't go for a simple solution to begin with.

boris03 [Cycling lions] Thursday 19.Jul 20:04, 2018
8th Winter Fantasy Overall
That should change. Maybe to introduct FC nations ranking and make coefficients something like this:
Top 10 nations 03
11-20 0.175
20-30 0.1
Others 0.05
That's for RR. For TT it should be in my opinion top 10 0.175,10-20 0.1, others 0.05

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Thursday 19.Jul 18:42, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
yes. almost everything gives FC pts. unfortunately still 0 pts for national championships..

Do u-23 race count for SF?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Saturday 7.Jul 20:32, 2018
Sorry, not sorry for stealing Laporte. Though pricy, he might just earn himself an extension. Was signed as a point maximizing-exercise for second half of the second - sprinter hierarchy at Cofidis too uncertain to give 2019-contract at the time of steal. Now it looks like it’s all clear for both sprints and cobbles indefinately.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 20.Jun 19:36, 2018
Cheers Tomas.

Tomas [Second Coming] Wednesday 20.Jun 19:04, 2018

It's on our todo-list to get the points on all race-results and results on rider profiles.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 20.Jun 18:21, 2018
Are the scores you get for all the different grade of races available anywhere?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Monday 18.Jun 14:12, 2018
I was sceptical a fair while, but looks like baby-/fatface Storer is earning himself a new contract. Il Piccolo Partykjepps have a system where riders are signed as neo-pros a year before they turn neopro in real life - nice to see the trust put in one of those warranted.

Hopefully Vanhoucke has written off the remained of his U23-spell to focus entirely on getting fit for his move to WT in August(?), he's currently on slightly thin ice.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Monday 18.Jun 13:23, 2018

im sure he'd be happy to give you kittel back at this point
#negativepoints

No, Nathan stole those with Kittel :/

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Monday 18.Jun 12:54, 2018
Are you wearing celebratory lederhosen, JJJ?

johnjackjoe [JohnJackJoe Racing] Monday 18.Jun 11:39, 2018
Positive Points! Yee-haw

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Thursday 14.Jun 23:12, 2018
Really pleased to see 'my boy' Jack Burke has recorded his breakthrough stage win in the Tour de Beauce. Had my eye on this guy for a couple of years now, definitely much more to come.

Rui Costa up for a great start at Second Coming - after dropping out of Tour de Suisse that he was supposed to win. #feelingTrickedByKjeppen

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 6.Jun 16:05, 2018
Just think of all those steals you could make from EPO. :)

Hahaha ... I was aiming at the Italian thing there ...
Sorry guys ... lack of dedication ... but you enjoy :))

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Wednesday 6.Jun 15:44, 2018
Go goon go. You know you would love it. :)

Tomas [Second Coming] Wednesday 6.Jun 15:36, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
FOMO = Fear of missing out, or? I think we should expand with one team setting us up to 22, and gief that license to Goon. That would be awsome :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Wednesday 6.Jun 15:23, 2018
Goon - you're just feeling FOMO when you see all things season fantasy-

16th Winter Fantasy Overall
The bids are starting to come for Big Schack for the next transfer window already. Kjeppen are offering The Shark as we speak in a 1-to-1 package deal.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:36, 2018
You got Vervaeke when we both thought he was the next Wellens, so Almeida is probably my turn to fail :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:32, 2018
Not at all, Monsieur Le Partykjeppen!.. :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Tuesday 5.Jun 23:26, 2018
Will it hurt to watch Almeida win Baby Giro, Francisco? :D

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Saturday 2.Jun 11:41, 2018
zKobalt you will have a special rules agenda always, i think and hope.. :)

Here, at K92 HQ, the newcomers woke up earlier and decided to make a presentation at breakfast to all the Team and Staff. It was their first step to integrate the team spirit and went very well.
I couldn't forget how good it would be for João Almeida to be here too and also how important Ms Kalinka Dump could be helping me in all activities related.
Unfortunately, João was kind of kidnaped by Il Piccolo team and Ms Kalinka was deluded in a dubious agreement between The Rockets and Lux Finest teams... :)

Nice drat for me, almost went as scheduled

Same here EPO :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Saturday 2.Jun 00:16, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
Would have managed the same without the crazy steal of Formolo. Can't be unhappy when I know how bad that will be for his unlucky new owner.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Saturday 2.Jun 00:13, 2018

suffered 0 steals and ended at 400/30. can be happy with that :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Saturday 2.Jun 00:01, 2018
I tryed to build my team to Dauphine but that's a mission impossible in a draft night.. :)

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 23:39, 2018
14 New riders this window. Ms Dump needs to organize some nametags for the guys monday.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 1.Jun 23:34, 2018
Some seriously unusual nations finished top ten in that one. :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 23:28, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
We all know he won Jeux des Petits Etats d'Europe last year in San Marino. #RaceOfTheSeason

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 1.Jun 23:25, 2018
If he hadn't of gone up that hill so well today, I would not of known of his existence.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 23:24, 2018
Believe me i won't!!!
We know each other for a long time and if there's something i'm very carefull about are these issues... :)
i learned that in a very hard way with high costs for quite a very long period... :D
my fault, anyway... :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 23:23, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
I only got one :(

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 23:22, 2018
Have Tomas give you another Bulmer's

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 23:20, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
A shame :( Here I have positioned myself the entire week for hiring her and now this happening. The second worse thing to happen this week, just #PitGate worse

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 23:20, 2018
Don't tell Your wife about Ms Dump, Francisco. It could get ugly.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 23:19, 2018
Uppps, ok boss!

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 23:19, 2018
Yes, you got Kwiato, Andy, that's the Whole point. You can't keep him and have her at the same time.

By the next draft my organization will have grown out of proportions. We will start numerous side Projects where more charachters will be in charge of different Things. I can't wait.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 23:18, 2018
You made me laugh big and almost in tears!
My wife even asked: are you really playing cycling?.. :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 23:15, 2018
Go post your draft pick, Francisco :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 23:15, 2018
:D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 23:14, 2018
Troy, shut it. I imagine the official season fantasy fan fiction Ole is starting to put together here will bring bigger revenues in time than the game itself. I suggest we spin it off early #AssetStripping #LeaveItToBigDane

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 23:14, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
I already got Kwiato, and you can get my sixth and seventh draftpick ;)

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 23:14, 2018
And since she's now real, I cancel all Challenges you guys created. And she will stop working for my team. I'll have her draft contracts and notes for the press, but not allowed to read mail, answer Phones or being on social media.

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Friday 1.Jun 23:12, 2018
She's an imagination whore by the sounds of it :D

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 23:12, 2018
Another thing that I find funny, and also quite pleasing, is that I honestly thought Ms. Dump was only a creation of my imagination, but since pretty much everyone here has had Words With her, I must have mistaken!

And Andy has obviously gotten quite fond of her. You can have her for two draftpicks and Kwiato.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 23:11, 2018
You already speak to her???
Ole, what are you doing?
This was supposed to be a fair challenge!

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 23:09, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
Ms. Dump needs to have a really good mentor, and last time I spoke to her nobody else could offer better mentor than me. Maybe I draft her in final round

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 23:09, 2018
Whats funny is that I was gonna take LL Sanchez, but thought about waiting until the last round. But The Stick took him instead. So Andy, be mad at him, not Aragonite or me.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 23:08, 2018
Francisco - I think Andy is able to file those press releases for school credit :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 23:06, 2018

Yes. Mailing Korean Warfare department to request for tactical bombing as we speak

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 1.Jun 23:05, 2018
If Ole had not taken Allegaert, my next pick, it would never have happened. #dominoeffect :)

1. He is from Luxembourg
2. He was my next pick
3. Then I am allowed to get mad on all Brits

He's had relations with most of them tbf

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 1.Jun 23:02, 2018

Will never forget this Arag

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 22:48, 2018
Andy, are you aware of what you have done with that Press Release?
How in the hell you want Ms Kalinka to chose you after such a great piece of work?
She will never feel confortable at Lux's HQ and that is simply great... :))
One less Partykjeppen... :)
I'm with Aragonite, it was a huge task read all your dissertation (does this word exist in english?..)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 22:38, 2018
Wife home - so finally time for those last two Bulmer's. Good things not many picks left so that erratic-Kjeppen wouldn't have taken over :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 21:42, 2018
I always go scruffy as I look 12 when clean shaven. I only fly the Il Piccolo Partykjepps-flag.

Steinvik: snikskryt!

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 21:42, 2018
They are free here at K's HQ i suspect he won't pay to much attention to your demand... :D

Steinvik [Skjelstadmark IL] Friday 1.Jun 21:41, 2018

@Partykjeppen: are you saving a beard while "kvinnen" (the lady) is away?

Also, is it you that have that BulmersGate team at the football World Championship manager over at NRK? (I'm not playing but received a screenshot).

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 21:36, 2018
I'm sure Oomen will want to have a word too as I'll demand that he cuts his hair.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 21:30, 2018
We'll have time to talk about it :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 21:27, 2018
Package deal where Oomen is included will be necessary :D

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 21:25, 2018
Yes i know.. :)
Believe me i thought a lot about that. Increase Gonçalves wage or pick Almeida
That's the game. I 'll try to make you an offer you can't refuse. not sicilian way, i must say.. :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 21:22, 2018
Still, sorry for Almeida but you had your chance ;)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 21:20, 2018
Tryed to follow your move but not possible.
first i need to connect all these things... :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 21:00, 2018
Steinvik - you have two drafts pending

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 21:00, 2018
Yeah - if you make your draft pick belatedly then you can't steal.

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:57, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
2. I mean: I want both teams to post the data there and then. Not after they have had time to quadruble check everything.

My whole suggestion based 1. and 2. are both based on making the game more liquid compared to "controlled". I feel we ride along all of us using a powermeter like Froomie.

Lovely post PartyFinn :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 20:56, 2018

Wasn't it no steals allowed then?

a draft we have to wait for, can only draft free agent og resign his own riders.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Friday 1.Jun 20:55, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
we have many skipped drafts now. what did we agree on last draft with regards to them being used to steal? say someone jumps into the 4th round and makes 4 big steals...

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Friday 1.Jun 20:52, 2018
Team JuhaMieto's riders were in shocked state after manager/DS LosBrolin walked in to the team bus and was seen handing flight tickets to every major talent in the team. Team morale is considered very low right now but proper party with ice cold Stolitšnaja shots playing the major role should calm down the remaining riders.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 20:52, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
I expect that people keeps their deal when I have even though it is not published in transfer thread. Always done it like this and never lost a single deal on it if we forgot about the crappy trader of a boy in Netherlands.

Steinvik [Skjelstadmark IL] Friday 1.Jun 20:50, 2018
Haha, i was ready at 1900, but then i went for some food and forgot the whole thing :P im back now tho :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:49, 2018
I think that would be named "The Andy rule" if it becomes official.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Friday 1.Jun 20:47, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
2. a trade is not binding before posted on the message board with contract info, otherwise both party can feel free to trade the riders to another team if a better deal comes around.

i always interpreted it like this in my own head, though it has never been written into the rules

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 20:46, 2018

Only almost

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:46, 2018

Fair points Epo.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:45, 2018
If you don't show up for drafts and not provide a list for someone else to handle for you - that should be first reason for firing..

Kristian-K [Green Bullet Cycling] Friday 1.Jun 20:42, 2018
1st Winter Fantasy Overall
I think if you not want to vote for rule changes or at least bother to vote "blank" on different cases, I a not sure if you should stay in the game or rather let other people handle the franchise.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Friday 1.Jun 20:42, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
it was quite different a couple years ago. if you wanted to have the option to raise wages before the summer draft you had to hold back in the winter draft, staying below 400. then it was changed to work as it does now and its totally fine i think. we have the 75 % rule for new wages which prevents the trading from getting too ridiculous

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 20:41, 2018
All you need is quorum if you want things that way

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 20:41, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
I agree

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:40, 2018
Fair point - problem when we tried to do straight voting early was that half the team owners never bother letting their voice be heard.

We should have a thread for managers to post suggestions for next season and then institute if enough are for them.

Kristian-K [Green Bullet Cycling] Friday 1.Jun 20:37, 2018
1st Winter Fantasy Overall
about talking of 1/21 teams, i think from now on all rule changes should be determined from all the team owners in the off-season and not by one fantasy general a week or two before the draft. Then we would have more clearity and we dont have to debate issuses all the way until the draft.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:36, 2018
I don't there is much difference between the way we do it today and the way Tomas suggest. Perhaps it would lead to more steals, on the other hand you can't counter threats of stealing if you don't accept a trade by raising instead :)

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:35, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
(Just so it's said: I consider myself talking for 1 out of 21 teams here)

Kristian-K [Green Bullet Cycling] Friday 1.Jun 20:34, 2018
1st Winter Fantasy Overall
I personally dropped to make a offer on Robert Power in the hope that he shouldn't get a raise and would be possible to steal for a low price, when i thought it would be difficult to get the assets to pull of a trade.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 20:34, 2018
7th Winter Fantasy Overall
I talked to Ms. Dump yesterday, Francisco. And she refused to do more overtime work this week so she told me to let my manager to the press release ;)

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:33, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
@Epo: that might be. I'm still voicing my opinion as a cycling fantasy dynasty team owner :)

Kristian-K [Green Bullet Cycling] Friday 1.Jun 20:32, 2018
1st Winter Fantasy Overall
I agree that this a discussion we should have, but is it not the way it have been before? I personally liked the way it was now. When you could trade to "earn" money

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Friday 1.Jun 20:31, 2018
Andy, are you trying to get some advantage in Ms Kalinka process near Ole?
Are you affraid of Cooper's Hill contest?.. :)
Is it because of no bulmers allowed before the race?
I can make an exception here: you and Partykjeppen can get some before the "event"... :D

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:31, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
Regarding Big Shack - its suddenly more interesting to raise his wage when you get 5 offers for him and understands he is WAY more popular then you expected.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Friday 1.Jun 20:31, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
it was changed to work as it does today a couple years ago. i like it like this...

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:30, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
No its not. Because you can trade off 3 riders, and wait and set wage-rises till you see your money there and then. Also you can trade off the one you get the best deal for, then raise the other. It makes it easier to "trick" the system sort of.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:30, 2018
All fair - I reckon we'll have a small list of proposal to discuss at the end of the season, like this and squad size.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Friday 1.Jun 20:29, 2018
4th Winter Fantasy Overall
tomas, its already like this?

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:28, 2018
16th Winter Fantasy Overall
1. Yes ofc. So if you have 8 riders you wanna re-sign, or are at 400/400 thats your problemo :) Such a rule can just be implemented between seasons.

Given we're soon through everyone - meaning we'll skip whoever haven't made their prescence know from hereon in, I reckon we'll be done tonight.

1, You mean before the transfer window?

I'm gonna go hard for two new rules for the next draft:

1. all wage changes needs to be posted BEFORE the draft
2. a trade is not binding before posted on the message board with contract info, otherwise both party can feel free to trade the riders to another team if a better deal comes around.

But thats a story for next week :)

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:25, 2018
That's one more day than you put in during a year, Andy ;)

My press release manager prefer to just work two days in the year.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:23, 2018
No - as per previous windows: if you're raising the wage of a rider your choice isn't locked in before the deadline. If not, more would do like Andy and just post everything 10 minutes before the deadline :)

Tomas [Second Coming] Friday 1.Jun 20:19, 2018

So following the rules we have now, you are allowed todo 3 wage raises on the same rider in the same window?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Friday 1.Jun 20:18, 2018

So why did you refuse all suggestions about trading him then?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:17, 2018
I reverted from raising Big Schach to 20 to 18 instead just before the deadline. Assumed he would be stolen, but should've made it hurt a bit more. Awesome rider though.

Partyfinn should learn to set proper wages - atleast his hair can't be any whiter, on the other hand he might start losing some if this keeps going on.

Hope I learned Pierre Latour up in serving drinks before you snagged him.

Also you know that this was the likely scenario, once you started trying to chip of Jack Haig to me a couple 'a days ago.

I am loving it!

PartyFinn not enjoying the draft so far.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:08, 2018
You enjoying your last steal from me, Albanese? :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:06, 2018
Tomas will go down in flames.

Assassin fixed it, Pary. Thanks btw!

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 20:01, 2018
Sorry - I'm back on duty and will sort all this out now Ole.

Assassin [Troy The Trader] Friday 1.Jun 20:00, 2018
Sorted :)

Ole A.Fikerud [The Rockets] Friday 1.Jun 19:59, 2018
Can you adjust contract length for my New rider, PartyParty? I dont know how to do that.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Partykjepps] Friday 1.Jun 19:55, 2018

LosBrolin [JuhaMieto] Friday 1.Jun 19:44, 2018
Good to hear. Enjoyed the points he brought with a bargain contract. That's something you wont find from my team.

Didnt hear the door bell ring, but luckily our newest signing could fit through the dog flap. Bernal arrived safe and sound in Germany.

Just wanted to give you guys a headsup. The VISA-card is down in whole of Europe as we speak (check your national newspaper website). Should be the best the time to start a war - and with all this steals in the first round of the SF-draft we might be the one sparking it ;)

Robbery ongoing in Finland

People spending cash early:
1. gets you the riders that has to go; like Yates and Bernal
2. gets the snowball rolling since other teams clear up founds earlie.

This looks like its gonna be a blast.

Aragonite [TORA TORA TORA] Friday 1.Jun 19:28, 2018
People with cash going in early makes for more fun for the bystander.
