New Game Questions

by enrique   January 10, 2013  

Just wanted to open a thread about the new game here.

1. What happened to the Rider page? Is the 'Ranking' page its permanent substitute? Will that page be the one where you'll find the roster for upcoming races?

2. It seems like the 'Ranking' page is listing a whole lot of riders with their values. How much can a Riders value change from race to race? For example, Andy Schleck is now worth 3.4 points. Could he go all the way up to his value of 37.8 last year by the start of the Tour?

On the question of rider rankings. The list looks like it contains all the riders (500 plus). But the heading says it should only display the riders in this competition (Tour Down Under at present) which should only be around 180 riders or so. Confused

currently it contains all the riders from the teams that are competing. when the tour starts it'll just be the riders who are riding.

I've creates two league for myself and my work colleagues - one which is for the 'regular' league and one for the purist league. Is this the right way to go about things?
It looks like both my teams (purist and non-purist) are in both leagues. Should I have just created one league and the 'regular' and the purist team will be automatically assigned to their correct league? If this is the case how do I delete the second league? Thanks!

I believe both your purist and non-purist teams should appear in what you call your regular league. and in your purist league only your purist teams should be present, if you selected the purist only option when creating that league.

It'd be kind of cool to see just the riders that are starting the Tour Down Under in one page. Could you have the page just show these riders a couple of days before the race starts instead of waiting for the competititon to start? Smile Thanks! Smile

By the way, I miss something from last year's Pick A Team page. Rider values would be grayed out if their value was above the amount left on your budget. You could avoid going over budget because anyone above what was left on your budget was not available to be selected. Can that be done this year, too?

On another note, I miss that functionality this year... Any chance we might get it back? Thanks! Smile

Dave, will we ever get the 'Ranking' page to list just the riders that are riding the current competition?

If not, can we have a start list page like we did last year? With the rider values and a date stamp, saying something like "Last Updated Februray 3 2011 8:46pm"? It's be easier than checking the Automatic Roster thread and while I appreciate the "Fantasy Cycling: the automatic roster changes forum thread", it's too long... Sad

Please?...

Dave, when I click on the "Stage High Scores" section on the "My Team" page, I end up seeing the high scores for the latest stage. There used to be a page where I could see the highest stage scores for the entire season on one page. Is there a way to get to that page? Is it available?

Also, when I click on the "This competition:
Tour of Qatar" section, the << and >> arrows to take you to the beginning or last pages seem to be missing. I think last year they were there and they helped navigate quicker to the beginning of rankings...

Thanks!

Dave? Please? I really miss having all the riders in one place without having to go from page to page on the 'Pick Team' section to see what all the riders are worth or go to a start list on another site... All the riders should be in the game already... Please?... Sorry to beg so much!

Dave, how hard is it to load a page with all the starters for a competition after the riders have been uploaded into the game? Is it difficult because they change so much or is it just too time-consuming? I really miss having that start list with all the riders and their values in one place... I thought the Rankings page would be like that but it continues to list absolutely every rider whose value has been calculated for the game Smile Please?....

Dave, how do I compare my high score for Stage 1 in Paris Nice with the other high scores any other user has had for the season? Is there a page where I can see all the high scores for the season? I know there used to be, but I cant find it! When I click on Stage High Scores, I think I'm only seeing the high scores for today's stage, not the high scores for all the season...

(Thanks forthe props, ray!)

Dave, I noticed that to go to a particular competition, the address is something like this:

http://fantasy.road.cc/gotocomp?cid=45

Do you, or does anyone. know the competition code so I can see the overall results for Qatar?

On another note, does anyone know how to see the stage high scores for the whole season? Thanks! Smile

I don't know if the high scores are a separate competition this year as it was last year.

you can't access the league data for a competition once it's been archived. it gets removed from the game and your results for the competition will appear on your competition archive.

so you can go back to the qatar pages with that link, but there isn't any league data there.

That was easy! Thanks, nori! Appreciate it!

Now, can someone help me with this one?

It used to be really easy last year. You just clicked on
the 'High Scores' link and you saw a list of the highest scores users had gotten soreted form highest to lowest and it would tell you what stage it was obtained in and if I'm right it also told you what riders were on the team the day that score was obtained.

I think it'd be kind of fun to be able to look back at the league data. Why do you archive the data? To save space on the server?... Thinking

Hi Dave, I know you're looking into it, but I thought I would add something that I think is related to what some of you have been saying: none of my 200+ point stage scores this season have appeared in "High stage score" under MY PALMARES, until this 216-pt. stage in P-N. For instance, my 231-point stage from stg 4 of Algarve never showed up, but a 2012 189-point stage was there for a while. ?? The other palmares seem to be "all-time" results; shouldn't that also be the case with the Highest Stage Score?
Thanks! Crying

Correction: In the previous comment I was referring to "Best Score on a Stage" under MY PALMARES [I said "High stage score"]

Hi Dave, any update on why the "Best score on a stage" is not updating correctly?
Thanks.
BTW, I've been playing cycling fantasy games for over a decade (Road.cc only since last year) and this one is easily my favorite!
Thanks again.
