[2021] Stat Gains, XP, Team Info, Wildcards, Fighter Gain
roturn
Stat Increases

Stat increases work the same way as they have done in the past. There are 5 levels of riders: Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 and Maxed (Lvl 4 and 100 XP). Each time a rider gets to 100 xp they gain a level, and receive a stats increase of the manager's choice.

This choice comes from one of 12 categories. Despite a lot of considerations following the suggestion thread with an adjusted fighter type, no new category this year but potentially next season then, which will see me and others consider this during the season already to announce it earlier. This file (from 2019 = 2020) details the exact amount of gain that will be received, depending on Category, Level and Potential.
https://www.dropb...s.xls?dl=0

The XP for these increases is gained by racing. Each race day earns a particular amount of XP, depending on the category of race and level of the rider. If a riders fails to finish a race, they still receive the xp for the full race.

XPLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
GT0012
M0012
PT (PTHC fpr PCT)0121
HC (PTHC fpr PT)12.51.50.5
C1/C2HC2210
C231.510


Additionally, the Tour de l'Avenir offers 20 xp to all riders who take part. Eligible riders this year are born in 1998 or later. This 20 xp is the first XP to be added to a rider during the XP calculation process. XP gained from normal races is then applied to a rider in an optimum fashion.

Riders may only gain 1 level per season, with the exception of Level 1 riders who are able to reach level 3. Though for riders born in 2000 onwards a development from level 1 to level 3 is not possible! Same counts for loaned out level 1 riders that did not include the 1->3 development clause/fee.

Any stat increases gained during the 2021 season will be applied after the season ends, ready for the 2022 DB.

The other form of stat increases is training. Prices might stay like last season but will be further explained later. There will also be the 2015 introduced restrictions on the amount of training a team can do each year.

Eligibility for Training:
- Only riders born in 1991 or later are able to be trained
- Only riders who are 'maxed out' - i.e. their xp is 4.100 - are able to be trained
- If a rider only maxed out during the 2020 season, then he is not eligible to be trained - as his stats have already improved inbetween the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Similarly, newly added riders to the DB, or riders whose stats have been improved, cannot be trained. There is a coloumn in the transfers DB showing who is and who isn`t eligible. If this coloumn proves to have a mistake, this will be adjusted as the rules above are easy to check.

Stat Decreases

Also in the statgains file are the decreases that older riders will receive at the end of the season. Riders born in 1989 will receive their first decrease this time around.


Team Sizes

PT and PCT teams have a minimum team size of 20 riders and a maximum size of 30 riders.
CT teams have a minimum team size of 15 rider and a maximum size of 20 riders.

These counts include Loaned in riders, but do not include Loaned out riders. Stagiares count as half a rider in PCT/CT but do no longer count for the minimum for PT teams. You can have a maximum of 4 stagiares.

The team size for all teams in all races is 8 riders. There is a minimum of 6 riders for each race. If you cannot field at least 6 riders, you will not be allowed to take part in the race.

The only exceptions are the pure time trial events, which have a rider limit of 3 riders per team.

Salary Caps

PT: 3,500,000
PCT: 2,500,000
CT: 1,200,000

Each team has a loan cap of 200,000. The loan cap will be explained within the Transfer rules.

Wildcards (PCT>PT)

There will be 2 wildcard slots for PCT teams in all PT races - not just Grand Tours and Monuments. There is a package cost for applying to a particular race category - you can apply to as many races as you like within a category, once you have bought the package. (Although there is an overall limit of races to apply for)

Prices are the same as last year:
Classics€30,000
Monuments€50,000
Classics and Monuments€70,000
Stage Races€70,000
Grand Tours€100,000
Grand Tours and Stage Races€150,000
All PT Races€200,000



Points scored by PCT teams in PT races does not count towards the PCT standings, and the races do not cost any race days. Race clash rules do apply though.

Priority for Grand Tour wildcards goes to teams who have not previously ridden a GT.

CT Teams in HC Races

The soon to be posted HC bands will show which bands and races still have spots for CT managers.
If a CT team decides to ask for a HC race, this can be done in the C1C2 Race Selection file depedning on open spots and priority lists as will be explained in the Race Selection Thread later.
Points scored will count towards the CT standings, race days are needed for team and riders though, just as with any other C1, C2HC, C2 events.

Time Bonus

Most races use the usual system.

Finish line: 20-12-8 seconds
Sprint: 6-4-2 seconds

There are some races though, that are mainly sprinter focussed, hence getting a bit of a different system to reward consistent sprinters inside the top10 but without top results.

Finish line: 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1 seconds
Sprint: 3-2-1 seconds

The races with the 2nd system are

Ronde van Nederland
Tour of Qatar
SAA Tour d'Afrique
Barbados Cycling Festival
Baltic Chain Tour
Ras Tailteann
Tour Down Under
Course de Solidarnosc
Tour du Faso
Circulo de Juarez
La Tropicale Amissa Bongo
USA Pro Cycling Challenge


Grand Tours Points Competition

In the past couple years GC riders dominated the point classification. Therefore parts of the RL TdF points are rewarded in the finish of specific stages.
This goes for all 3 GTs in the PT division as also for the Tour of America.

Flat Stage: 50-30-20-18-16-14-12-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2
Hilly Stage: 30-25-22-19-17-15-13-11-9-7-6-5-4-3-2
Mountain Stage: 25-20-16-14-12-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
Mountain Top Stage: 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

The definition of the stage is not necessarily the symbol. For mountains this usually is, for stages that end slightly uphill, it either can be the flat or hilly rating depending on the way towards the finish.
We will going to check to see if this is really as you would expect it to be.

New in 2021

PCT in C2 Races
PCT teams will be required to sign up to 10 C2 race days. The restrictions on riders they can enter into C2 races will be adjusted. It will now be a maximum OVL of 74.49, with stat restrictions on Cobbles and TT/PRL having a max of 76 in any of those categories in races that feature this terrain.

Fighter Stat Gain for next season

At the end of the 2021 season the newly gained xp will once again lead to stat increases of talents. The fighter option is replaced with the table below. As you can see it is a lot stronger than before and will give you a chance on a fighter with some good balance on most terrains.

It was weakened a bit in the lower potential areas as some riders get already added with low potential and better stats. Those would improve too much with that new option otherwise.
Also the 1-2 level got significantly lowered in comparison to the suggestion as otherwise it would be kind of the automatic option for most riders as it beats basically all other options, in especially in the Pot 1-5 range.

It still sees a big upgrade to the former.

3 PT relegations

Due to the 20 PT teams only, the relegation is down to 3 teams only with 5 PCT still going up, which is filling the divisions again as usual. This is only for this year due to the late changes in division size.

Sorry if the question may sound dumb, but: is the new Fighter stat gain valid already for the 2021 season (i.e. applied between 2021 and 2022), or does "next season" mean it's only selectable for the 2022 stat gains (applied between 2022 and 2023)?

Furthermore, I don't really understand "The restrictions on riders they can enter into C2 races will be adjusted, to make more riders available." Iirc, the limit was 77 last season, so it's actually less riders that are available?
 
roturn
It will be valid with the next round of stat gains, so after the 2021 season, before 2022.

The text is wrong from a copy&paste. It`s less riders now, just a very few but less. Going to change the text.

Seconded what BBL says. I can understand nerfing level 1 a bit tho, happy that there now is the option to utilize it!
 
Scorchio
A quick question on the new 'Fighter' stat gain table included above. Is the upgrade for cobbles at level 2 > 3, 4 > Max supposed to extend to more potentials than level 3 > 4? Just wasnt to confirm hasn't been inadvertantly flipped as isn't the normal pattern.

Just to write it here again to make it clear. It was posted and written elsewhere as well, but easier to have it 100% official above in the first post.

3 PT relegations

Due to the 20 PT teams only, the relegation is down to 3 teams only with 5 PCT still going up, which is filling the divisions again as usual. This is only for this year due to the late changes in division size.



@aidan: Likely uploading a file again asap, which might be in 1-2 weeks only though. But there is a ranking scale point file in 2019 I think, which is still the same as this year.

One question, please. I don't have it exactly clear in my mind so I'll ask. In a 1 day race which takes 2 race days in the calendar a level 1 rider in CT gets 6 Exp points according to the race days in calendar or 3 Exp points as it's a 1 day race?
Thank you!
