Total Scoring for those who starts late in the fantasy game

by petiagos   July 7, 2011  

Hello everyone,

I have a doubt.

I join the game only at the 8 stage of the fantasy game.
I read that there is a oportunity to those players who join the game after it has started, and then there will be another season-long game, this time for the best average stage score. I need to score on a minimum of 45 stages to be eligible and then they will calculate my average from my top 45 scores and put me on the leaderboard.

But i don't know if i stay in the current overall game standings( with the new score, that is the actuall + calculate average for the 7 stages behind) or it will be create a current overall game for those like me.

Can anyone explain that to me, please.

Thanks

Pedro Silva

Everyone who scores in 45 or more stages will have their best 45 stages combined and then a average taken at the end of the season

Thats how i think it works

NikkiK, it's all practice and there'll be plenty of spot prizes on offer later in the TdF as well as bigger prizes for the Vuelta too. Plus, it's fun!

That's because it's not taking the top 45 scores when working out the average. It's taking all the scores and dividing by 45. So at the moment the average table is identical to the world one. Thinking

Are you sure? I think its just because there has only been 52 stages, so there aint going to much difference at this point, but it goes with reason that the top guys are going to be top of the average league aswell

It's definitely not taking the average of all stages, else my score would be about 6pts below where it is.

The reason both tables are similar right now is because total number of stages (52) is very close to stages counted (45?).

A simple test (and advantage) of the Consistency league table is that your score can never go below what it is right now.

Theoretically, in CL you can beat the top scorer of World Tour even if you score little more than half that person's points. But that'd be an extreme case deserving a grand prize! Big Grin

Think so.

Eg Jauman in since the start (52 stages less 2 nullified) is on 4671. /45 gives an average of 103.8 which is the average in the consistency league. so unless Jauman has scored zero in 5 stages,which they haven't, it can't be right.

same for yours (Gkam84) 3804/45 = 84.53

yeah, it was broke. now it's fixed, innit.

At least i think it is Big Grin

hasn't made a *massive* difference to the top of the table, but then we're only just over half way. so the people at the top of the worldtour league are going to be the consistency leaders too

My score seems to have gone down too.

Don't get it though - How can average of best 45 stages be lower than average of all stages? Thinking

because [total score]/45 is more than [best 45 stages]/45
