Is now live. Link on the road.cc homepage.

The only differences I can see are the 175 credits and the fact you have 50 transfers to use in total.

Do you think you'll score more points that way?

It's somewhat easier to get a decent team out of that budget

No I originally asked for the function because on some of the lesser races I'm not the greatest at purist so thought an autofill would help me out  26

Just looking at stage 2. This is going to be very tricky on transfers.

If you don't like your autocompleted team, go to leagues then go back. New autocompleted team.

mine now has Valverde and Bob Jungels in it

Joel - 50 transfers - when will you run out?

I like the way that intermediate sprints and mountains are better represented, but I have a feeling I'll do both and make the same transfers each week

Is there a forum scorum league?

Different rider values will make this impossible.

I suspect I will run out of transfers within about a week having looked at the parcours.

I registered for the game not knowing this -- it's buried deep in the small print of the "terms and conditions of use," which I couldn't access before starting the process.

I suggest that Mr. Atkinson include a more prominent warning.

Now that I've wasted 15 minutes registering, I think I'll play, even if it means risking prison.

Fair enough....easy enough to criticise you last season for failing to stump up £10 for premium but it'd be a heartless person who criticised you for failing to become a UK resident!!

Only within this road.cc game.......I won't be setting one up the skoda one or scoring that particular version in the existing league.

Nothing stopping anybody else setting up a league for forum users though?

How's everyone getting on? I'm 31st so far which I'm pleased about.

And 43 transfers left too.

It's actually a completely different feeling game to the normal one. I like it.

i'd be interested to know how people feel about the transfer system. obviously it's possible to allocate transfers differently within the road.cc game: have them all at the top, like the skoda game, or have a weekly allocation.

we changed to one big lump of transfers for the skoda game because it's just easier to play that way. until you run out of transfers, obvs.

It does change the game significantly. For instance I can put someone in today for stage 6 if I have a dud player in my team without fear of a penalty.

It's too early to tell yet though, think we need to wait until the end and see how everyone gets on.

Unless Skoda fancy doing an annual comp like Wiggle? That would be the best news with 2 different games.

One point of note is that there are no 3.0 riders in this one really!

I completely forgot about this until logging on last night to find that Cav, Modolo, Michael Matthews and Sepulveda have not been pulling their weight for me over the last few days.

Joel will run out of transfers by stage 13  19 so I could catch up

I am on target with transfers. 7 used after 3 stages is fine by me! Not many needed in the middle part of the race either so I will be saving up for the last couple of stages.

At what he moment I'm liking the riders values and the way transfers are allocated but as said above we can reserve judgement until the end  1
