2017/2018 fantasy evaluation newest on top

14th Winter Fantasy Overall
CHANGES DURING SEASON: at the beginning i thought it was better to allow one change every week, now i think the 4 windows x 6 changes system are enough and perfect; if we want to change that we can try with max 2 changes in a week and 6 in total in the period (to change wrong choices or replace injured) or 5 windows x 5

JOIN THE FANTASY AFTER THE START: allow the latecomers to join the fantasy until the end of the third period but -50 budget credits for each week already completed (entry at the second week 950 credits to make the team, at the third 900 ....) and starting with the same score of the bottom ranked team at that time

START SEASON ATHLETES VALUE: to prevent big athletes having a starting value too low (because they played a few races or had an unlucky season) i think it can be better to change the "points collected in the last three seasons" system on the best score in the last two seasons with World Cup 2017/18 counts 0,90 (90%) and 2016/17 counts 0,75 (75%)

ATHLETES VALUE DURING THE SEASON: i think something need to be changed ... some athletes grow up or move back too slowly, some athletes remained with unchanged value even without good results. Its difficult to find a good index... sure the current season must be rewarded more than the previous ones (maybe is enough to change the season point coefficient) otherwise we can try to link the value to race performances (example: better position in two consecutive races than the previous one +5 and worst position in two consecutive races than the previous one -5) or again we can try to find a way to link the value to the position on the WC standings of the last two season

NEW DISCIPLINES: the "snow" Fantasy will be very complete and amazing with Skicross and Snowboard Slalom and Cross; great a new one for the "ice" with Speed Skating (long and short track too), and maybe with Bobsleigh, Skeleton and Luge too :))

I had ONE, and one only table smashing super celebrations this Olympics, and that was 34.41 500 meter by Håvard Lorentzen.... so yeah, I am in for a speed skating comp :D

Everyone has to start with the same team value, otherwise you know who are in the top before it starts ;) But I get the point in that we could have had a competition spawning longer then a season.

Regarding your team value increasing 27%. It's because you have been playing good over the season. Also picked up athlete's like Klæbo, Bolshunov and other undervalued ones.

Next year there will be a tweek to the value system - with everything set to "zero" before the new values arrives. Also adding more values (like 105, 115, 125 and so on). If there is a "budget" change, it would be lowering overall prices or changing the number you can have in your team.

There is also an idea flying around here about a separate speed skating competition within the same model.

About the evaluation
My first thoughts, without looking closely at it.... I figure the general value of the athlete mass is now significantly increased from when we started this game.... my team fex. has a 27% value increase ... I am guessing the general would be some 10 - 15% maybe ... again, haven't looked at it
Point is: next season should have a bigger budget and, I would like to maybe have som choice options between keeping your value and start over with clean sheets .... maybe some kind of restriction for those who like to keep their value from this season ?

Overall scoreboards updated. So classifications for the season are correct now. Myself I fell just out of my hope of ending within the top 10%.

Now it's also time todo an evaluation of the system. So that we can fine-tune this game and come out even better till next season when we're out of development mode, and flying high from early on :) I will post my own reflections once I'm settled for the easter with a sport free monday.
