- Where and when do I give the contracts? In the topic of the cyclist itself or will topic be made for that? Looks like I'm close to getting some cyclists and there was the option to raise the contract, so I could give 2 year contract if I wanted.

Does this answer all your questions?

1. See the Nuyens thread to learn why you should never ever edit/retract bids :agent:

2. The etiquette now includes a graphical example of how to control your budget :afro:

You've got to love the moment you are only a couple of hours away from getting your first rider and then someone comes and increases the offer with 10k.

dangn it people. There are hundreds of cyclist out there yet at this moment we are only bidding on like 100. Some people seriously need to go search for their own riders instead of being lazy asses and just bid on the existing topics.

I hear you alex. Maybe their should be a rule that you have to come up with around 5 of your own topics.

I'm sorry guys, but you shouldn't feel so bitter about it. Putting somebody up for auction can't give you any privileges, and I'm afraid that's how auction games often are. Yes, people will bid on your favourite rider, and sometimes they will do it a minute before 48 hours expire. So keep your head up, try to stay positive, and enjoy the game!

I'm not mad because somebody is bidding on my favorite rider or any rider at all. I know that's how it works. I've played this kind of games before.

But after 3 days and only 100 topics for riders opened when there are plenty of others to choose from, you have to admit that something is wrong. This way the riders will get way too overpriced while some aren't even auctioned for.

Well, there is another way to look at it. For somebody less familiar with fantasy games (and with the faces in the peloton), 100 threads can be an intimidating number. If you think riders are overpriced, simply pass and wait for those to be auctioned later. I'm sure your team will be ready for Paris-Nice.

Yeah, 100 riders isn't a tiny amount, considering there are "only" 18 teams, of which a few haven't bid at all yet, and a few are only involved in 2 or 3 auctions. That leaves like 90+ riders being bid on by 12ish teams. Seems about right to me, considering there's still more than a month before the next race.

There are a few different tactics/styles of bidding. Some seem to bid on everything with two legs, others are a bit more patient (a few even "hellooo, wake up!"-patient). I think it works, so far.
