ICL18 - Signup
It's now time to open the first thread of the new season of ICL. Only Riders Development and National Championships are left of ICL17. If you want to continue your team, make a post here and also if you are new and want to join the game. It's a perfect opportunity for new and also older MG managers, that want to bridge the time until the new ManGame season, without loosing their managerial skills.
I'd also appreciate if managers that don't want to continue their ICL teams could drop either bikex or me a short PM, so that we know.

Please fill this form out if you want to be a part of ICL 2018:

3 letter Abbrevation:
Secondary Nation(s):
Previous Team:

If you want to have a development team, please add a second filled up form to your post. There can't be more than 24 dev teams.
Only non mandatory field is secondary nations, your main nation and potentially other nations will have an influence on the quantity of talents that will appear before the start of the next season. You can have a max of 5 secondary nations. Don't add secondary nations to your dev team.
If you didn't have a team in season 2017, please put a "-" into that field.

If you want your team in the Continental Tour, please add that to your post, then it won't be considered for the World Tour. If you are new to the game your team will automatically be part of the Continental Tour.
Please add a jersey to your signup post, if you don't have one yet, already make the post and edit the jersey in later.

Soon there will be a ICL18 - Teams thread in which you can make a team presentation.
Questions can be asked in this thread or in the ICL17 - General Discussion thread or by PM.

If you want to read about ICL first. Most stuff here is still pretty accurate:

The Racing

I will 3D race all the races but won't post a report, just a picture of the winner and the results. I think the results of 3D racing are better that's why I won't simulate. Like this the seasons can be done very fast in contrast to more detailed community games. Check out the style of reports here: https://pcmdaily.c...d_id=35240

Your Teams

You will found your own teams and in a short and simple transfer season you will contract riders and fill your squad. The teams will be divided into World Tour and Continental Tour teams. It is preferred that your team will have a jersey for the winning pictures. You can look up for one in the shirt database or in graphic threads of shirt makers. In the database there are 127 countries represented. You can only pick from them for your team nationality, so if you have a too exotic team planned ask first if the nation is available. At least three riders of the picked nation will have to be in the team.

Development Teams

WT squads and possibly some CT teams will have the chance to make development teams that will take part in the continental races and in some races just for development teams, they will get there own ranking there. Not any rider will be eligible to Development Teams, more to come. The nationality of the Development team doesn't have to be the one of your main team, but at least two riders of that nationality will have to be in your main team and at least three in the development team.

The Calendar

The calendar will be mainly choosed by you. There will be a WT, a CT and a U23 (for development teams) calendar. Only the monuments and the grand tours are fixed for the WT calendar. When the time comes you can suggest any races out of the stage database, stage makers threads or out of the real calendar. In a voting the final calendar will be decided. Like that I hope to get your teams nation focuses also in the racing schedules. You will find the races that made it on the calendar for the first season here: https://pcmdaily.c...rowstart=0

The Rankings

There will be three different rankings: WorldTour, ContinentalTour, U23Tour. Also a ranking out of all rankings combined will be made, the Prestige Ranking (PR Ranking). The WT ranking will decide on which team will relegate to CT. The best CT teams in the PR Ranking will move up. In the unlikely case that a development squad is among them, the spot will go to the next CT squad. How much points a rider will get for a certain positioning will be published before the season starts.

Riders Development

At the end of the season each rider will be have a certain number of points assigned. How much depends on their age, their current average, their number of race days and their PR ranking points. The manager of the rider can then assign a training plan out of a list deciding in which ratio the points will be added to the different stats.

Race Planning

You will have to choose in which races you want to take part. WT teams will naturally have to take part in any WT race, but also can apply for a certain number of CT races. CT teams can also apply for WT wildcards. Once each team is completed, I will make race planners available, in which you fill the season of your rider. Race clashes will be considered, but you will see in the file which races clash. Like in the mangame riders will have depending on their stats a different number of max race days and one day races will cost you two race days.


The transfer season will contain of three rounds of Free Agents buying. For that I will post a Excel spreadsheet containing a list of available Free Agents and their stats. You just put a number next to them, depending on what you are ready to pay for them. The highest bider will get the rider and will have to pay the wage offered. Transfers between teams will be made like an auction, I'll open a thread for that in the story games section.


Somewhere when coming to the end of the season I will post an excel file with regens, but their stats and potential will be displayed very imprecise. You then can spend money to scout a certain rider, making the information more precise.


If you have some money over you can spend it in research. You can make research on training methods for three different stats. The success of the research will be random. Depending on how successful it is you will be able to improve the stats for some of your riders.


For the first season every WT team will have the same budget and every CT team will have the same budget. WT teams with development squads will have an united budget. Every manager can then decide how to spend the budget. You can decide how big the portion is you will spend for scouting and what part you will use for transfers and research.


I will 3D simulate the NCs for the most important countries. For all the other countries I will use an algorithm to determine the national champions.

Even though this could all sound a little bit complicated and time consuming, it really isn't. Almost everything will be done via prepared excel sheets I'll give you and if you are occasionally too busy, I will happily help you.

However a detailed knowledge about how everything works isn't required yet, as you'll easily understand everything once there is the time.

Should we fill out the form if we want to continue exactly the same as last season? Because SAP - Bianchi will be the same next season. Smile
