The 2016 PCM.Daily Fantasy League is almost over and final rankings will come next week most likely. Seeing that a nice core of members took part we give all existing participants the chance to remain in the game for the 2017 PCM.Daily Fantasy League but we also look for new participants.
In case you are interested to join the league next season, send me a PM. Please also send a PM if you were already in the 2016 League but want to continue!
For those that don`t know about the game yet you can read about the 2016 season here or in short the idea behind:
The idea behind the game is quite basic. After the manager selection process, we will organize a quick draft to create the teams. This will happen in a serpentine draft system to make it as fair as possible. Draftable are basically all riders of the CQ ranking. So lots of tactical decisions can be made in this part. Team sizes also depend on shown interest by members but it is planned to see team sizes of at least 20.
Afterwards the game stays quite simple for the rest of the year. All races no matter the category are going to count as long as they go into the CQ Ranking as those will be the base for the game ranking. The admin team is going to send out ranking updates throughout the year to keep a nice discussion in between the managers.
There will be some rules for the draft of course as this is the part of the game, where we want to create a good balance. This includes for example the cutting of the very best top riders to avoid some overpowered teams, that got lucky to get a top draft position.
The draft itself will be done via big boards. So all managers would send in a long list for a couple of draft rounds. We admins then quickly go through those and always pick the highest non-picked rider according to the draft order. Every couple of days we would ask for a new updated big board until we have finished the complete draft, which obviously has at least 20 rounds to get the needed team size.
We are looking for members (50+ posts), that want to take part in this game first. This process is expected to be quite quick. If interested, just send me a PM. Take care you will have enough time for the initial draft, that is supposed to happen within the November weeks to avoid the Christmas Days and before January, where the first races already take part.
