More New PCM/TDF 15 Screens

As reported on Wednesday, Cyanide gave us 4 more screenshots of the upcoming 2015 versions of their games. We got two views of the Champs-Élysées and two views of climbing. Also visible were about 11 more fully licensed team kits from various WT and PCT teams. You can read the full thing below and click Read More on that article to look at the pictures.

2015 Giro Stages For PCM14

The years first Grand Tour is bearing down on us and now you can play the route in PCM14! Eyolfur has made all 21 stages of the 2015 race for PCM14 and released them over on the official Cyanide forums. Or if you don't fancy the trip there you could just click this download link. The stages are fantastic quality and Eyolfur really has done a top quality job!

April Graphics

If you're adding some new stages, why not add some new graphics at the same time? Just like most months we have a nice variety of members releasing various jerseys all through the past month of April. You can check out the top selection of them and then vote for your favorites by going to the April Graphic Contest. Even if you don't want to vote it's a great way to easily find some great jerseys.

Man-Game and Story Games

The Man-Game off-season ramped up a level this week. A ton of new information has been released about race's, HC/C2HC bands, XP gains, taxes and more. All this signals that Renewals is getting ever closer and that the madness of transfers is pressurizing nicely. That said two teams were already cut this week for failing to meet certain expectations, which was a shame. But the MG world must quickly move onwards!

The ICL found a bit of pace with some more events this week like Suisse and Rheinland-Pfalz. EPIC ground through the Dwars Door Vlaanderen. Hopefully these two games won't be slowed too heavily by increased MG activity.

CX: A New Dawn is on the edge of starting Season 2. Sign-ups closed this week with a great selection of new riders and members taking part. Even if you didn't sign-up i have to recommend following along because the quality of everything in the game is amazing, like this season preview!

Thread of the Week

Once again it is clearly going to come from the Cycling sub-forum. We are well into the depths of the season with multiple races every day at all levels from NCup to World Tour to Track records. The Other Races 2015 thread is the best place to keep up with all the non-WT action and is updated multiple times a day with PCS embeds. The News in "Month" threads are great to keep up with wider events like Alex Dowsett's succesful Hour Record attempt. But my Thread of the Week goes to Tour de Romandie 2015 where the pre-Giro build-up race packed in the action and discussion.

More PCM/TDF15 Images
Pro Cycling Manager 2015

Expect more and more information to become available through May from Cyanide. The games wil be released in June and they continue to build up the buzz. 4 new images of the games today showing us more hints at content.

We get our first view of the Champs-Élysées with, what i assume to be Contador, attacking the the Yellow Jersey. And a dramatic view of the Eiffel Tower showing off more teams. The other two images are climbing shots with big pelotons, looking as good as ever. You can now start to see a lot more jerseys as well like Lotto, Garmin, MTN, LottoNL, Astana, Movistar, Lampre, Katuha, Tinkoff, Trek, Ag2r and hints of more.

If are you interested you can find the full post on either their Facebook or Twitter accounts. Or click Read More to view the images. Or they will soon be available in our Screenshots section, which will be updated as more become available.

No PCM.Daily 2015 DB for PCM14

As you might have picked up or guessed there will not be a Daily 2015 DB for PCM14. The DB team has been very quiet on the subject for a while and this is official confirmation there will not be a new DB incoming for PCM14. That doesn't mean there aren't 2015 DB's around, check out the Downloads section for some very good ones. This is not the end of the PCM.Daily DB and we hope to be back with one for PCM15 much later in the year.

All New PCM/TDF15 Screens

Yep Cyanide gave us a first public look at PCM/TDF15 when they released two screenshots yesterday. You can read about it in yesterdays article which also contains the images via the Read More link. In short, it looks very nice yet again.

Story Games Summary

Both EPIC and the ICL have slowed a bit in the past week(s). EPIC did conclude Catalunya with Valverde winning for Movistar ahead of Koenig for BMC and Uran for Sky. Both games are struggling slightly with a lack of reporters but they are still grinding onwards nonetheless.

The big Story Game of the week has been CX: A New Dawn. Off-seasons in any game seem to bring the most action and CX didn't dissapoint as many new riders and teams popped up this week. We've also hade the Season 1 awards nominations go live, and the Season 2 calendar has been confirmed. There is still time join Ian Butlers game and you can do so by going to the thread.

Thread of the Week

The Man-Game DB release sparked plenty of discussion in that section. The Other Sports forum continues to be a point of interest for American Sports fans. But this week there was only ever going to be one winner of TotW. The Hilly Classics 2015 has been by far the dominant thread during Ardennes week, no competition at all to the commentary on AGR, FW and LBL.

First PCM/TDF 2015 Images
Pro Cycling Manager 2015

Cyanide have dropped their first two official screenshots on us today for Pro Cycling Manager 2015 and Tour de France 2015. Much as you'd expect they are two very pretty images showing off the graphics. What we can tell is that they've got the normal bunch of licenses with; Orica, Bretagne, Iam, Fdj and Androni jerseys all nicely visible alongside some others that are a bit harder to pick out.

If are interested you can find the full post on either their Facebook or Twitter accounts. Or click Read More to view the images. Or they will soon be available in our Screenshots section, which will be updated as more become available.

PCM World Cup

The PCM World Cup is being hosted by PCM-Portugal this year. The official event is all being hosted on their site which you can find here. Sign-ups are open until th 24th April and as usual there are all the standard Track events alongside Road racing. The whole event will run through to the 4th May. Join in and test your online skills against the wider PCM community

Man-Game Madness

The off-season has picked up pace again. Teams are now selecting and confirming their 2015 equipment and just this weekend you can now submit your 2015 Goals! This is one of the biggest parts of the game as it will define your budget. There's also hints that the first DB will drop this coming week, so we really are cracking on now.

Story Games Summary

EPIC verges on its first Season Break. The final races are topping off in Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands. It's also time for teams to apply for Part 2 races looking forwards. Finally the Continental Championships startlists have been confirmed with the events taking place on the 2010 WC course around Geelong.

ICL has completed it's WT triple header. The races in Germany, Guatemala and Japan providing plenty of talking points as some riders overperformed ad some underperformed. We await the next rankings update eagerly as eyes turn towards the Tour.

Ian Butler's CX: A New Dawn is going to finish it's opening season tonight with a race from Dunkirk. A lot of Season 2 planning has been going on regarding the calendar and new riders, teams and transfers. Keep an eye out in the coming week for information on how to join in a well loved and well run game!

Thread of the Week

In a quiet week for real news it's been a hugely busy week for forum discussions. The Stanley Cup Playoffs and end of the NBA regular season sparking action in their relative threads. But it's hard to look beyond the Cycling forum for the biggest action. Paris-Roubaix rumbled long into the week before attentions shifted to the Hilly Classics 2015 thread. Other Races thread as usual has been busy alongside a steady stream of News In April. But my thread of the week goes to Eddy Merckx and his 445 pro wins which was revived and lead to some nice talk about the greatest cyclist of all time.

Spring Classics Online

Cyanide put the time in to give us a patch to get Online working again, so it's only fair we use it. PCM.Daily's Spring Classics Season is back! Over three nights we will be competeing over 5 classic race routes: MSR, RVV, PR, FW and LBL! The racing is planned to begin on Wednesday 15th. For more details and to register your interest make sure you read the thread here.

Stories of the Month

It's not exactly the end or start of a month but it's been a while and the Story sections are buzzing. the_hoyle's new venture The Domestique is gathering good pace and shows lots of promise. For more PCM14 based reading try Shonak's Lotto Soudal: The Career Report.

PCM13 seems to be the beating heart of story writing for now. Jakstar22's
Nairo Quintana - Quest to Win em All rocks onwards. tsmoha takes his NRS 2015 to New Zealand. redrobert is all new with his Bancolombia adventure. Lastly Karl Hammarling completes TheManxMissile's epic story at long last.

Or if you want something old school Sutty is well on his way to breaking records with Team Novo Nordisk on PCM12. Or if PCM11 is more your thing then Ian Butler is back with Flamme Rouge.

Story Games Summary

EPIC finally completed January with the conclusion of San Luis where Peter Sagan won out after many many many weeks of racing. Catalunya keeps the WT active as does the anticipation of more cobbled classics. The Criterium International and KBC De Panne more than occupied the PCT, and several WT, teams. Momentum is good at the moment as the Season Break approaches.

CX: A New Dawn draws close to the end of it's first season. Still a few races to go but most of the titles seem to be wrapped up at this point. Keep an eye out for the end of the year and a chance to join in a surprisingly popular and successful game in the future.

Riding on CX's tail comes Triathlon: A New Start. As you could guess it's about Triathlon and will follow a very similar set-up to CX. Luck is wished to it for the future.

Thread of the Week

There's no denying it will be a Cycling forum thread, nothing else even comes close. The Womens Cycling 2015 finally got more comments thanjust myself. If someone could explain how the DDV|E3|GW thread is still going? There's been plenty of Other Races 2015 to talk about, not least Vuelta al Pais Vasco 2015. But my Thread of the Week is probably incredibly obvious. It's Paris Roubaix 2015 which takes place tomorrow.

Well it's time to return to normal after another successful April Fools Day prank. We were pleased to catch some people out with the site's transformation into 'SKY.daily', and it was great to see many of you play along as well, in a site filled with PCM.daily jokes and parodies.

You can look back at some of today's fond memories in this photo album, while all posts can still be viewed at the bottom of the discussion forum list.
