Suspension/deletion of the max number of leading bids rule
« Reply #60 on: March 12, 2019, 12:46:16 PM »
Guys, this rule is horrible any way you think about it.

Especially now, when we're not enough people to create reasonable pricing.

Race after race, I can only pick 3 (or 5) riders and then wait to see if anybody else comes online for me to participate again. This does not serve any purpose.

I say we immediately forget about it. Davy strongly agrees. Bryan?

It adds a different strategy to the game. Early bids (other than nominations) can protect nominations from getting wiped out. The major issue is lack of participation by more than just a couple of us. But if you want to revert back to the original rules, I'm ok with it.

In theory yes, we made it more tactical.

In practice, I simply gained a huge advantage by being the one to start auctions early. When only one more person bids, they're forced to pick their 3 (or 5) battles very carefully, and I still get plenty of semi-gratis "Valverde for 30" guaranteed wins.

I say let's go back to the more free-flowing and simple original rules, at least for a while. If you don't like it, please post here again!
