If you mean the budget fantasy, it doesn't start until this weekend.
If you mean the classic fantasy, it can be found here: https://firstcycling.com/maraton.php?aar=2019

Rider values will be adjusted on the 20th of each month.
So I assume the trading window will open up on the 20th as well.

'Every month you can make up to six '. Do the changes have to be made on the first of the new month? Or can you make the six changes at different times during the month?

jon ezeitza [jon ezeitza] Sunday 24.Feb 19:22, 2019
Can you see our classification somewhere? That is, the list of those who participate in the races, the points we have accumulated so far and the position we occupy?

¿En algún sitio se puede ver nuestra clasificación? Es decir, la lista de los que participamos en las carreras, los puntos que tenemos acumulados hasta ahora y el puesto que ocupamos?

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 13.Feb 21:41, 2019
We also need to make s point of making sure programs of most expensive riders is as up to date as possible (I’ve added a lot of riders to their stated GTs - but as you know I’m rarely up to date)

Regarding Hayman: the fastest thing will be to just block rider-id's in the code I think. Since my todo-list are looking totally nuts already.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Wednesday 13.Feb 21:38, 2019
We need to remove Hayman from possible picks.

Team pages went up earlier. Just not posted her. An evaluation thread will be posted early tomorrow. For feedbacks, before this game is being launched later this week.

I think this will be rather awsome :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 11.Feb 23:59, 2019
Team made for July
Hope you can put this thing rolling after tonight, Tomas! :)
Good night guys!

Then it will be a 10min for July.

May simulated. Rider values. Team points. And opened up for June.

Next window will be 23:30. So I get time to tune the team pages....

Created an error. Re-calc of rider-values inc.

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 11.Feb 22:45, 2019
Bigger effort than you have ever done

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 22:43, 2019
How much effort is BigDane putting into his team selections for his comeback on the manager-scene, Tomasz?

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 22:39, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
I'm spending to much time on team pages. So we are gonna do one more window of transfers before its ready.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 22:23, 2019
Good thing I locked in all my changes before starting that third glass of wine. Summer editions could be a bit erratic :p

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 22:13, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
May postponed to 22:45. I really want those team-pages up and running so we atleast have them for the last changes. Then we can go with 10min windows for the last two.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 11.Feb 22:07, 2019
After all, 6 changes but all about giro...
yes, there are some issues to solve, it seems.. :)

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 11.Feb 22:02, 2019
Loving that my budget when down first month, and then up 25 in April :)

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 22:02, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
I need to get the next module up and running so we can see this more proper. Deadline for May is set to 22:30 so I can have team-pages up and running.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 22:01, 2019
May-team ready :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 11.Feb 22:01, 2019
Giro, California, Norway, Frankfurt and Yorkshire..
Nice game, boss!

You belive in this budget/pricing?

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 11.Feb 21:59, 2019
Seems reasonable price, to be honest!
I'm not an expert but you can count with some tips in a near future, i believe in the same budget

Changes for May opened up.

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 21:55, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
Standings updated in a new version.

What we are missing now are the team pages.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 21:55, 2019
About 15 euros, putting in into the lower price bracket over here. If you have some recommendations from Portugal, feel free to send them :)

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 11.Feb 21:54, 2019
I usually use lemon tea with honey, thanks! :)
Very nice to see you're discovering portuguese wines, too!
They aren't so fashion as italians or french but there are nice ones here too.
how much euros are 140 Kr?

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 21:51, 2019

Values for transfer windows May being calculated.

Standings for April being calculated.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 21:45, 2019
Francisco - tea with ginger and honey and some brown liquor to kill it off? Had this the other day and was reasonably happy with your contry's produce: https://www.vinmonopolet.no/vmp/Land/Portugal/Niepoort-Dao-Rotulo-Touriga-Nacional-2016/p/8035401

23th FC-manager overall
Thats all I ask :) I just need enough people to make changes till Giro and Tour, and get a feel of it, to see how it works out. Sorry to be fine tuning much of the code on the fly.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Monday 11.Feb 21:26, 2019
Not an easy night at K's HQ
i got a cold and always in bad humour when that hapens... :)

23th FC-manager overall
Goon: I've reset the values. Can you kick and rebuy Gilbert Kwiato and Van Avermaet? Will close it down in 15 minutes. And start simulating it.

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 20:56, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
It was an error.

Rider changes fixed for march. Teams will be closed down. I need a 5 min break. Brb. From now its gonna work :)

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Monday 11.Feb 20:56, 2019

Okey ... sees to be in order now :))

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Monday 11.Feb 20:51, 2019
14th FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
Gilbert Kwiato and Van Avermaet suddenly cost 40 50 60 on my team

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Monday 11.Feb 20:51, 2019
14th FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
Something went very wrong with the prices here guys ??

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 20:50, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
New prices are not connected to team pics.

Think I need 30 minutes. Not sure why they arent getting teir points in the calculation. Reckon its a minor minor bug, thats suddenly working.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 20:45, 2019
LOL. Don't touch the team I put together as prices will soon adjust back to what they were?

Andy [Luxembourg Finest] Monday 11.Feb 20:42, 2019
Worse deflation than what the hyperinflation happened in Germany post WW1

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Monday 11.Feb 20:42, 2019

Look at the rider-tab, and you'll see I got an error in my code ;)

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 20:40, 2019

Opened up again goon :)

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Monday 11.Feb 20:40, 2019
14th FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
I got 14 15 riders or something like that ... Too bad I was saving money for the cannons in the end... :D

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 20:33, 2019
Going from my own experience of cobling together a team now:

Show only affordable-button would be helpful in main window, not just in "search"-mode.

Adding a filter with "WT/Pro continental/continental"-options in main window would also be useful.

goon1221 [Jinx.inc] Monday 11.Feb 20:30, 2019
14th FC-manager overall - 3rd FC-manager last 6 weeks
Sorry ... i couldn't finish my team .. I just saw the deadline 15 minutes ago ...

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 19:13, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
20:30 is a good time. Testing value changes as we speak.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 19:10, 2019
I might be able to make it after all, boss. When is team locked for first period?

Tomas [Second Coming] Monday 11.Feb 15:21, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
"Clear"-button added.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 14:44, 2019
When you've searched for a specific rider by name, it would be nice to have a "clear"-button which takes you back to unfiltered a.k.a. most points-view.

Partykjeppen [Il Piccolo Gregari] Monday 11.Feb 14:40, 2019

I'm busy until later tonight than this game is run, so I'll participate with a static team I'm afraid. Godspeed!

Tomas [Second Coming] Sunday 10.Feb 16:58, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
For the simulation I want people to participate from March (start) to July (end). Meaning changes for April, May, June and July.

Tomas [Second Coming] Sunday 10.Feb 12:35, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
Ofc pick riders having to good a 2018 - just dont spend time winning the simulation ;)

zKobalt [FruitnOats] Sunday 10.Feb 10:58, 2019
Think it makes sense to test 2018, everyone will know who won what races and simulate the picking and dropping of in form and out of form riders and price rises and falls.

I will pick the "worst" team possible for 2018 and that should be a fun reference as well.

ritlefant [Ritlefant] Saturday 9.Feb 22:39, 2019
Go ahead and do the same mistake as on Winter Fantasy and allow to many changes... 4 is plenty. There has to be some skills involved... Not looking at myself though.

Being busy, my team will not be changed during this test and can be used as a reference in that way.

Tomas [Second Coming] Saturday 9.Feb 20:36, 2019

- Choose 20 riders within your budget of 1.250
- Your team gets saved on every change
- Every month during the season you can make up to 6 team changes
- Riders score points from the FirstCycling ranking'
- First month will be MARCH

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Saturday 9.Feb 20:36, 2019
7th FC-manager overall - 9th FC-manager last 6 weeks
How many monthly subs will be allowed?

Tomas [Second Coming] Saturday 9.Feb 20:22, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
Hard todo a full simulation without picking a year. Coolest thing would have been to set it up for 1999, and let you buy Ullrich, Pantani, Riis and that young american dude.

Tomas [Second Coming] Saturday 9.Feb 20:15, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
*Set up a team for 2018. And this Monday I will let u swap riders every 30 minutes to represent a month of 2018 till the season is over, and simulate value changes, to test the game. I want to test how this goes for cycling. If you feel like winning it, thats ok, but thats not the point of my simulation.

Erythropoietin [Erythropoietin] Saturday 9.Feb 20:03, 2019
7th FC-manager overall - 9th FC-manager last 6 weeks
So, set up one team for all of season 2018, although we will be allowed to make monthly substitutions in 2019? And also, you want us to remember what we would have predicted before the 2018 season, while pretending we don't remember what happened? :P

Tomas [Second Coming] Saturday 9.Feb 18:32, 2019
23th FC-manager overall
The system has gotten an update. For now the system is set up with teams and values for 01.01.2018. This is todo a full season simulation this Monday 11th February, with races, points, price changes, transfer/changes and all. To see how it works, and to tweaks before we launch the game after that.

Feel free to sign up for the test.

Francisco [K92-Team Neverland] Thursday 24.Jan 12:27, 2019
I found this quite challenging...
For sure, need to rebuilt the team.
Very good addition, i believe! :)

We are testing a new concept for a fantasy game to go along side our Classic Fantasy Manager Game. This will be a season long budget game that works like our own Winter Sport Fantasy game over at Skisport365.com - or like Premier League fantasy if that more floats your boat.

Before this game starts up till Omloop [02.03] we will do some simulations and testing. Right now users can set up teams and get a feel of the system. There will be tweeks in values and budgets, so teams set up now will be reset.

This weekend we will do a simulation of the 2018 season for who want to partipate. We will set riders up with values for January 2018, and run it month for month, with windows for changes every month in the simulation.

The basic rules for the game is;

- every team picks 20 riders within their budget of 1.250
- riders collects points from the FC-ranking
- every month you can make 6 changes to your team
- riders will dynamically go up/down in value

There will be tweeks based on feedbacks from our belowed users.

We are doing this already over at skisport365.com - and we love it. So I hope this will be awsome for cycling also :)
