Hello everyone and welcome back, hope you all had a good winter and if anyone is interested Forum Scorum returns for 2016

Ive set up a Forum Scorum league for 2016 (league ID: 76580)

Im thinking of following the same scoring and rules as last year which are posted below, along with last years calendar, and most events will be similar, maybe the odd addition or deletion

Rules/Points

Grand Tour Overall:35,20,15,10,7,5,4,3,2,1
Grand Tour Purist Overall:10,7,4,2,1
Multi Stage Race Overall:10,7,4,2,1
Multi Stage Race Overall Purist:5,4,3,2,1
Autumn Classics/Spring Classics/Worlds/Womens World Cup Overall Competitions(standard only):20,15,10,8,6,5,4,3,2,1
Every Stage (per competition, ie points awarded per stage in TDU standard as well as San Luis Purist, or seperatley for both Giro standard and Giro purist as comps now run independently meaning more points on offer!):3,2,1....ties will be broken by GC position within that competition and then within the game.

Most races will be included, and I will keep the list up to date when we have decided if certain races are being run within the game. All WT races will have both Standard and Purist formats. Some of the other races may only contain standard or purist depending on what is run in the game, or how significant a race it is, where I may only score standard 

The main rule is: In order to score points for a specific competition, your team must be present in the league for the deadline of the first stage of said race

Thanks for taking this on again TER, must involve a lot of number crunching. It did really spice up the end of season.

Re the scoring, it seems a lot of points given to the World Champs, 40pts for a couple of RR'S and two ITT'S, compared to say the Spring Classics which was 20pts for thirteen races, including most of the Monuments. Just my opinion, and I do apreciate it is the same scoring for everyone.

Points can be reduced for Worlds

whats the thinking? 10-1 for 10 scorers,or the same scoring as for a standard stage race?

In reality the Worlds are the same as the classics, a one day race, so score them the same is my opinion.

But its like when they gave double points out at the last race of F1 a couple of seasons ago it added something to the race knowing there was still a chance of winning the championship.

We will also have the olympics too, so what points are we gonna have for that?

I agree its alot of points but its a big event in the year, and as stumps says its the same as the classics, and its less points than a grand tour but you could say it has bigger value than a normal week race

Seems like it's two to one in favour of keeping it as is, so I'll go along with that. Kind of do like the idea of having  a last chance, high scoring, end of season event . As for the Olympics, what events will be counted?

Im not sure at this stage for the Olympics, I imagine TT and RR, probably mens and womens.

 

On a separate note, the last olympics I believe someone ran an omnium style forum game for the track events. If im correct, anyone rememeber who ran it, or can find the thread on the forum?

You can be in for San Luis, your in before any stages have been scored.

Its more a case for those who join later on in season, Ie midway through a week race, when they would just appear in the standings

Nice one TER, good stuff. First time I've been on the Forum since last year, completely forgot about FS but have joined now.

Have paid zero attention to the world of cycling since Lombardia so totally disoriented with so many riders moving teams, doubt I'll have it straight before April!

Well the first races of the season are done and dusted.

So just a few things:

This year I will post the points earned next to the player in question, just to make things clearer as it may have been difficult last year to judge with just the points table being updated.

As its the start of the season, and there is no overall table as a tiebreaker, some of the points may seem abit odd, for example Allan and Aragonite had the same team of scorers for San Luis, so where they have won a stage both have been given 3 points, and 1 for the person the came 3rd and so on.

Finally those players who joined midway through the TDU have now been accepted into the league.

Oh and Aragonite seems to have continued where he finished and last years Tie for 1st overall

A poor Tour Down Under for me across the whole game, but did enjoy scoring some surprise points here with my Stage 1 purist team.

You people are getting way too good at this - my purist teams came 23rd and 43rd and I got virtually zero FS points for it!

Me and backflip were a bit hard done by on stage 7 of San Luis tho, loads of teams got the same points for joint second but only Aragonite and Allan Bremner got scored! Bloody alphabetical order I suppose  2
