by Elinor   June 13, 2011  

Hi Dave,

All the changes that I made this morning to my team have not happened - my page is showing last nights team! I tried to make a final change at 10.45am but the system appeared to have crashed by then cos I couldn't get onto your site at all.....!!

Help!

Sky's the limit

This is chaos, what happened to my changes? which were done right after the crash reboot, at about 1226. Now I find the team back to yesterday.I should have been looking at a reasonable day.

I got one, went like this

Today's stage neutralised

WorldTour season: Tour de Suisse Stage 4 Grindelwald > Huttwil
Transfers available: 4
Okay. After a fun night of trying to get the server back on its feet and a game glitch that affected everyone's tactics, we've decided to neutralise today's stage and run the game on from tomorrow. Everyone's team will be reset to the one they finished the Dauphiné with, and transfers will be limited to four - the two you should have been able to make today, and the two you would have got anyway.

Here are the questions you no doubt have, and the answers:

What happened to the server?

We're not entirely sure, but we think it was a damaged site module on road.cc coupled with high traffic. We don't think it was an attack. We've removed the module now and we're investigating the issue.

Why was the game allowing me unlimited transfers when I was only supposed to get two?

The game switches from the transfer page to the unlimited 'pick team' page based on a list of unlimited stages that's separate to the main stage list. Stage 37 was in that list when it wasn't supposed to be, probably from way back when we hadn't clocked that the two tours overlapped.

Why have you reset my team back to the end of the Dauphiné?

Because that's the most sensible line in the sand; there was never meant to be an unlimited stage in this section of the game, and many people set their tactics accordingly. Also, the server issue meant that some people lost credits when the server didn't log changes properly, so re-establishing everyone's team at that point solves that problem too.

I've only got four transfers now and a whole bunch of Dauphiné riders though!

Well, that's the situation you would have been in had the game run through this stage as it was scheduled to do.

Transfer page changes

The transfer page has been amended to reduce the load on the server. It's more or less the same as before, but you can order the rider list by clicking on the headings at the top. So, click on 'name' to order them by name and 'status' to order them according to who's in and who's out. You can select more than one criterion by holding down shift and clicking. So a click on 'status' followed by a shift-click on 'value' will show order the riders first by status, then by value.
