I fear this will be a debacle for my team unless I study the rider list a bit more.       And the parcours for that matter.   

But I'm too lazy.  ;D

Spent 30 seconds on it... and only realised after that I had picked the 3 main favourites and the 3 primary sprinters...

And you're top ram!

Some handy little bonus points from Cobo and Quintana for me.

Pity Juanjo is going to fall from grace tonight :(

Post by: Slow Rider on August 20, 2012, 10:41
Starting this game with a handicap: first stage and Gasparotto falls and abandons. He was the last rider I added, spent some time trying to decide between a few riders, but ended up going with him. Bad decision.

Degenkolbs win put me into 5th but like the subjective quantum physicist, my Vuelta relies on JJ just sandbagging with his tooth-problem talk.
Title: Re: Velorooms Vuelta Velogames
Post by: Havetts on August 20, 2012, 11:00
Wondered if I should take Degenkolb over Breschel.. seems I shouldve, although Matti might hold on on some steep finishes and score some points.
Title: Re: Velorooms Vuelta Velogames

2 stages in and I'm displaying my traditional fantasy-game mid-table mediocrity.

Anything else would leave me giddy with excitement, so it's probably for the best.

Mid table with this group is not the same as mid table in other leagues. This ain't the wnba.

I think they have realised that they are messing things up. They have a prologue-stage 20 system, but allocated the points for "prologue"+stage 1 to "stage 1 and 2", leaving the prologue entry blank.

Lol - are you saying I've made the big time.  :win This must be what it feels like to be in one of those plucky-underdog-comes-good sports-type movies. Or what Frank Schleck feels like when he wins...  :P

  I think they have realised that they are messing things up.

That makes a lot of sense... I guess I'll have to make do with the real Vuelta for entertainment this afternoon!

Oh wow, Valverde was the same price as Cobo. fliped up big time there.
Title: Re: Velorooms Vuelta Velogames
Post by: Arb on August 21, 2012, 15:05
Cobo was a must pick just for the lulz though, don't regret it, and he could still make a charge in the final week :D

Breschel not sprinting and Kessiakoff just being meh isnt doing my velogames any good. :(
Title: Re: Velorooms Vuelta Velogames
Post by: l29205 on August 22, 2012, 20:39
other then Ben swift on my team pretty lame sprinting in general with the rules the way they are from both velogames and the veulta it will be hard to get sprint points.  Bad news for me if ZERO points from my climbers hope the changes.

Post by: Flo on August 23, 2012, 09:53
I don't do velogames anymore, I'm convinced it jinxes the riders I picked :fp, last year in the tour Alberto was nothing, nothing I tell ya, and finishing in the last three in the tour mini league, with only nibs scoring decent points, well flip I'm not doing it again
Title: Re: Velorooms Vuelta Velogames
Post by: The Hitch on August 23, 2012, 13:15
Its just luck flo. a question of probabilities. You play enough fantasy games, you are bound to win 1. I mean i wont deny that you have a slightly better chance the more you know, and that moments of tactical brilliance can often be the difference between winning and losing, but mostly, its just luck  ;)

I wish. Your other climber is Froome. My is Mollema. And you've got Viviani too, Swifty's not doing as well.
I wish I had your team!  ;D

Post by: starfire on August 25, 2012, 11:02
I ain't complaining - actually doing quite well. Sitting comfortably on the wheel of Tuart and his GreenHEDGE guys, just waiting to strike. Or waiting for Degenkolb, Purito and Froome to strike even further, that is.

And 24 hours later you're top of the pile already. Nice balanced team for sure.
Title: Re: Velorooms Vuelta Velogames
Post by: froome19 on August 26, 2012, 23:07
3rd at the moment, the key being all 3 of Contador, Froome and Purito, backed by Viviani and Meersman and Henao, but cant see it getting any better unless Henao gets some freedom or Kessiakoff pulls up his socks..

Top of our league and having managed to pick Lars Peter Nothere in my team. :-[
So, doing it with just 8 from the start.

Besides, I'm bottom of Foxxy's GGTG league. :fp
