Brainstorming: abandon race squad selection?
« on: June 21, 2016, 04:46:27 AM »
Davy has just sent me home made statistics on how many points each team loses through the 8-man selection and autopicks. Short version? A LOT! Plus, the sheer process of selecting your squad is tiring upfront and often frustrating in the end. We should find the way to fix this. Maybe abandon squad selection altogether starting in 2017, now that we stay engaged in other games anyway? Because the reason why it's there in the first place is that we didn't want a league which would need no activity at all outside the auctions. It seems this reason is now obsolete with 80% of us happily involved in CR, RC, and QF.

Thoughts?

Fine by me. It doesn't direct people here anyway, just onto the Google Sheet.

I'm one of the 20% not involved in the other games but I'm not against something like this. I would stil like to see an upper limit for riders in any particular race though.

Pretty sure this can be done.

Say... auto-score the top 8?

I'm not sure that I've understand it right, but what I hear is that active teams lose points to teams that are inactive, because of the autoselection of their riders...

Or am I wrong?

I enjoy picking riders, but completely agree with auto picking top 8 for races and top 9 for grand tours.

Sounds good to me, do we need to wait for the 2017 season to implement it?
