Sweet 16 Patch
Ok it's 1.6 not 16, but i needed some sort of fun headline. Primarily general crash fixes Patch 126.96.36.199 dropped early in the week. To be honest it's not a revolutionary patch and is just an accumulation of small crash preventions and optimizations it does show Cyanide isn't quite finished with PCM16 yet. No official word but signs are there we may get a 1.7 (or at least a 1.6.2) patch before the harsh winters forces us all to the computer.
Ideas for 17
Think you know what will make PCM17 the definitive cycling manager game? Well Cyanide have actively asked us at PCM.Daily to gather together all the suggestions to try and give them extra help in developing next years edition. You'll lose a lot of ability to complain if you don't try and suggest differences. Just pop over to our Wishlist thread and try and follow the posting guideline. The quicker you can post the idea the longer Cyanide can work on it.
Not that this annoucement is all sunshine, as it comes with what some view as a heavy asterix that the main development focus will be on multiplayer. Make of that what you will, perhaps if enough of the community voices their concerns it won't happen.
It's been a week for the ProContinental and Continental Tour teams. The PCT headlined by the Duo Differdange, and to put it politely the result was divisive. The put it less politely, you might as well have played the lottery instead. Not that Novotek will particularly care! Who'd have thought the cobbles would be the race to provide normality. Gent-Wevelgem being taken by Lierse in a thrilling and close fought classic that really was classic.
The CT headed first to Hungary, where Kraftwerk dominated and Podium Ambition faltered, in a fractured and confusing finale. From there teams headed to Bulgaria and a mixed race. Some stages going to plan, some to breaks and every team having some ups and downs. The highlight really being the surrounding sponsor talk the event generated before finishing earlier today.
Thread of the Week
I mean we're deep into the gritty center of the years final Grand Tour. So Thread of the Week wasn't really going to be anything but Vuelta á Espana 2016! Overall we've been dominated by the Cycling threads recently as the season ramps up towards the Worlds and it's overall conclusion not too far off now.
