Really? No man you can do this on hard.
On extreme it would be extremely difficult with Jurgen Vandenbroeck tho.

Hard, amico, always on hard Wink

I'm not going to attempt beating an 84 quintana on extreme though ...

I know, I was kidding. It's still really challenging win with this margin and to win sprint jersey on Giro, with this competition and on hard difficulty.

Quick question, I have been playing a couple of careers with diffrent DB's and every thing have been fine, except one thing (which I think is non related to the DB's).

Do any of you other PCM players also experience quite unrealistic results when you simulate a "sprint" stage? Even though I have a big favorite on those stages, they never even end in top 10 Shock

Simulating in PCM 12 (never even simulated in PCM13 as I pretty much only played it for a story) and I can tell you yes. 70 SPR guys are winning ahead of 83 SPR and so on. I think nationality bonus may have more effect in simulation than in 3d mode.

Have you tried in PCM14 ?

Maybe you are right, but why is that it is only in the sprints this happens. Mostly the results on the hilly stages are some what more realistic.

Nope, not for PCM14, but I would take a guess that it isn't much different. There are times when it is good though. Its usually okay results wise but then you get really weird stages about every 1:5 flat stages. I dont really know why hilly stages are better, they just are. I could probably guess but I dont feel like thinking about it right now Pfft

Fair enough. Actually I think it might be even worse this year.

Playing with netapp and they extend the contract - i agree. In June/July/August other sponsors will give me contracts. In the message window is a link, but in the sponsor-section there are no sponsor-deals which i can sign. Ok, i extend with netapp, but why i get these possible contract deals?

Sry for my bad english ...

First of you can only accept one sponsor, as you say. Second of I think it is a bug, that makes it possible for the sponsors to offer contracts even though you can't accept them. And what is worse, in the next season you most likely will continue to get offers, even though you might have a sponsor until 2016.

So I just started a new career Belkin (middle of May) using the new ASODB2014.

Until now it has been a huge season. Gesink started out winning the Tour Down Under. Mollema winning Paris-Nice, Li├ęge Bastogne Li├ęge, La Fl├ęche Wallonne, Amstel Gold Race and leading the World Tour. Vanmarcke with second place in Paris - Roubaix, third in Ronde van Vlaanderen and ninth in Gent - Wevelgem and a win in Dwars door Vlaanderen (1.HC). Further more there have been stage victories to Mollema (6), Vanmarcke (4), Gesink (2), Boom (4), Nordhaug (1) and Ten Dam (1).

Guys..I know maybe this question has been asked but is there some sort of tutorial for automatic mode strategy? I got confused using that..Especially during race using that Ride for the stage, ride if in a breakaway, attack, follow attacks and do not attack

I play in hard and I find the rating kills the career mode, in my career with French riders I have 40 victories in April for my first season, I play PCM since 2005 and I never had as many victories.

Just switch to Extreme then. That's indeed way too much.

I often experience that break-aways hold to the finish line? Do you guys experience that too? I am playing with OlegTinkovs DB.

Now at the tour of Quatar, my sponsor expects a stage win, but it seems to be impossible, because all the CTT teams joined the tour.

Will the CTT opponents be taken into consideration according to the sponsor goals ? Like if I finish 5th in a stage and places 1-4 are only riders from CTT teams, will that count to make the sponsor happy ? Or is it just bad luck if CTT teams join the tours your sponsor wants you to win and you just dont have a chance then ?



Honestly, I don't think that PCM is that conscious about such things - not about your example with the 5th place. But maybe they will think that a 5th place is not that bad and that this will be looked on with "mild" eyes (if you know what I mean). But I don't think PCM is that sophisticated.

I'm playing with ASODB as well, but I have experienced quite the opposite. The breakaway almost never hold to the finish.
