I love it. It's beautiful. Wow. I like the flexibility of being able to choose riders with so much flexibility. And it's fast! Wow! I'm going to like this a lot! Thanks!

I echo the comments above. Very fast and easy to filter your wants/needs! Excellent! Can't wait to get into the thick the season.

Front end of the game is really good, much easier to use. Thank you to whoever redesigned it.  1

Still managed to make a mistake (user error mind)  7 didn't read the box about team name so sorry to say I have very unimaginatively named team. If the press ask I'll say it was down to Europaceormine being embroiled in a super team takeover during the off season  16

Go here http://fantasy.road.cc/account you can still change your team name, you could change it at anytime last year, so it might be the same again

I see that my nationality ideas didn't make it through. The only way to find out is my CLICKING, yes... on the rider's name and then on the X in the corner. That's two clicks too many...

But otherwise, reeeely good. I suppose that you're waiting for the rider's faces though.  1

Change team name? Uhuh. CC Borgo Ticino is back for a third season, no change there, and this time round when it hits the front early on, it won't fall away like it did last year. I hope  39

Love the new game, and my team is picked !!

And I'm sticking to last years policy of mot picking Cav - he'll never make it up that hill to Clare.

@J Andrew Hill

with stage wins being more points I'll be picking him more this year I expect. Bit busy with the nursery at the mo though!

if you go to your team page you should be able to approve them in the leagues box. let me know if they're not showing up in there...

A good thing in my opinion, caused brain overload.

Thanks for the invite, hopefully in as Another Bunch Of Losers.

The new engine is great.

Loving the new stage points structure,the differentials should stretch out the leader board and stop bunching, a good run in a stage race should put real distance between players and their nearest rivals....great call.

You know, in all the time i had on some others and since its been fully open, i never even looked at the scoring system......off to have a gander

Also, if you think of anyone else who we were all having banter with last year, give them the league ID number and i'll accept them  39

I'm kind of new to this game. Will the rider values stay the same throughout the year? Will star riders stay 'star riders' all year long? For example, what happens if you have a Jelle Vanenedert or a Chris Froome scenario? Where a domestique becomes a 'star'? Do they still stay in the 'Domestique' category for the whole season?

Nice job on the game design. It looks sleek and beautiful. I like the look of it.

On another note, does the fact that we now choose 'Star riders' instead of riders in different categories make these categories irrelevant? That is, during the year there will never be limits on how many GC riders or Sprinters I have on my team? So I can have a team with 5 'Star' Sprinters for a particular day at the Tour? Or a team of 5 'Star' climbers or GC guys? Hmmm....

Yes the new game design with riders and categories is good, and the format is easy to use for selection and team management.

Like the transfer rollovers as well.

Only thing I don't like is the disparity for stage points and GC. Good to have the Top 20 on the stage going from 35 downwards, but I think you've gone way too far.

You could have altered the GC a little too - maybe starting at 20 points and going down in 2s for the top 10.

It doesn't seem right that the maillot jaune gets the equivalent number of points as the person who came 11th on a stage. By that position they're just rolling across the line.

There's not much reason to have a top GC rider in the team.

Isn't that just the same as last year? Personally, I think it's a good thing that people who take risks by bringing in contenders for stage wins get rewarded with more points than those who play safe with GC contenders. It'll be interesting to see how it works out.

Agree - 100% - it was so boring when everyone was after safe 'GC' type points - the risk was too high to try anything else... the new points system is far better.
