The Zero Pointers CQ Game 2018
« on: January 03, 2018, 19:03 »
Hi all,

I just registered for new members who can't sent their teams in the other forum, although sometimes follow the threads here for two years now.

Search did already mention this game in the CQ game-thread.

Jancouver had an interesting idea in the 2018 CQ Ranking Manager thread http://forum.cyclingnews.com/viewtopic.php?p=2215208#p2215208: The Zero Pointers Game.

As many of you who play the main game will search for zero pointers anyway to fill up your 33 riders roster, I thought I give it a go.

Here are the Rules (stolen from skidmark):

The game is based on the point system developed by the website www.cqranking.com. Based on this system you will have to select a team of exactly 10 riders who collected 0 points in 2017. Riders who have no CQ sheet yet are eligible.

Your aim then is to select a team of riders who will score the most during the 2018 season. The winner of the game is the one who has selected the team with the highest combined value when the game ends.

Feel free to post this game also on the velorooms forum, I'm not registered over there.

1. How the game works

1.1. Start & Finish

The season starts when the first race giving CQ points is held (which is the Aussie National TT Championships on January 5th) and ends when the last major race (.1 or higher) is held. The winner will be crowned when the next update after the last major race is out.

1.2 Updates
Every two to four weeks, depending on my time and the success of the chosen riders.

2. On doping

2.1. On ex-dopers

All riders are available to choose, except for riders who are provisionally suspended by the UCI (as of their most recent list).

2.2. Riders getting caught during the season
If you include a rider in your team who gets caught with his hands in the cookie jar, nothing happens right away. Your rider keeps his points unless the cqranking.com deletes his results before the end of the game.

Basically, the value of a rider on cqranking.com always stands.

3. Submitting your team

3.1. How do I?

You pick exactly 10 riders who collected 0 points in 2017 and send the list to me.

As I will manually have to include the teams into the Microsoft Excel file which keeps track of the scores, please be careful that you send your team to me based on the correct formula. I don’t take any responsibility for any error you might make. If I spot an error I will do my best to contact you but I can’t guarantee anything. Of course, if you have any questions feel free to ask either here in this thread or by sending a personal message.

The layout you need to use is this:

VAN AVERMAET Greg
CONTADOR VELASCO Alberto
Etc.

Nothing else. No points after the name. Also, be careful that there is no “space” after the name, because I will have to delete it manually, but can't always detect these things in time for the game. If there is an error that isn't discovered until after the game starts, the rider will simply be deleted from the team without replacement.

3.2. Submission Deadline
The first race of the season will start January 5, so I want to have your team in hand on January 4 23:59 CET at the latest.

I sent my team to LosBrolin.

So far we have 20 teams with one rider in 19 teams, one in 18 teams and most teams with at least one unique pick.

Good luck all.

    Thanks for your interest in my game. So far 30 teams are in, more than expected, one team DJ Sprtsch needs to be modified. Still 2 hrs 15 min until deadline.

    most unique picks :win :win

    I missed Castrillo though, and I didn't take into account that Colombian conti riders may not be the best choice given the abolishment of the Vuelta...

    That's why I opted for Chalapud over those two as Medellin had quite a few races outside South America last year. Could be tough to get points at just Oro y Paz and the Nats.

    Turns out it was nothing serious, just road rash type stuff. Should start stage two.
