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!

  • DynastyDeacon: *12 roster spots not counting G-League or IL
    Yesterday at 09:11:22 PM
  • tdtdtd: I am still well under the cap. And there is no way I win all 16, and if I did, then I think 6 of my bids could be dropped for free. So I would fill up 3 extra spots where I would have to buy players out.
    Yesterday at 09:23:52 PM
  • tdtdtd: I think I would be paying about 50m a year for my bids if I spread them out, and I have 60m+ in cap space
    Yesterday at 09:25:10 PM
  • Daddy: Legal bidding is legal
    Yesterday at 09:26:26 PM
  • tdtdtd: actually, 8 of my bids are 1m per year or less and could be dropped for free. So I don't mind winning a few those and having to drop them to clear roster space. You might be right about illegal bids being out, but I am pretty sure mine are ok
    Yesterday at 09:27:51 PM
  • tdtdtd: Daddy's bids look illegal based on the spreadsheet, but that might be missing a recent transaction
