National Teams
« on: February 21, 2019, 08:31:42 PM »
* About NT Races *

* At present, there's a single NT team.  In the future, there may be a NT team for young cyclists.
* There are seven NT races per season per category.
* Races are held every Sunday evening (CFF time).
* Races are varied throughout a season for different skill types, and each season has different races.


* About The NT Coaching Position *

* The coach's job is simply to pick the best national team for each international race, and set the tactics for each race.


* Nominations & Voting *

* Nominations opens prior to the last week of the season (my note: will add exact day later).
* Voting begins from the Monday (my note: check & will correct if this has changed) after the opening of nominations (last week of season).
* Nominating & voting is open to teams in the top 3 divisions.
* You can only nominate &/or vote in your own CFF country.
* Only your first vote counts.  Once you vote, you can't change your vote, so make sure you vote correctly first time.

* At the end of the season (after race 118), the winning nominees take their places to be the new/continuing national team coaches for the upcoming season.


* If No Nominations? *

* If there are zero nominations for a position, then the top ranked manager in the country who doesn't have a NT position will be selected into the position by default.
* Note, this rule had changed from a few seasons prior, to avoid a repeat of a manager holding two positions at the same time.

* Cyclists *

* A maximum of 9 cyclists can be selected for any race (note: NT manager should always select 9 cyclists).
* Participating cyclists gain experience at the following rate
Open NT race = +0.6 exp[/color]

* Cyclists finishing in top 20 of a NT race may gain international fame (see stores for effect), and also gain a small increase in his wage.


* Attributes Affecting Race Performance *

Cyclist attributes which affects cyclist performance in NT races
* Primary skills (from stamina to experience on team sheet).
* Weather bonuses

Cyclist attributes which don't influence cyclist performance in NT races
* Form
* Health
* Training camp bonus
* Staff
* Bike equuipment
* Races already done this season

In other words, only the cyclist's primary skills are important in NT races.
(Note: NT coach tactics is the other determining factor)


* NT Race Points *

1st = 300 points
2nd = 250 points
3rd = 225 points
4th = 200 points
5th = 180 points
6th = 160 points
7th = 150 points
8th = 140 points

vvv
20th = 10 points

* These points are added to both the cyclist's and country's international points tally.
* If two (or more) cyclists from a single nation gains points, the country is awarded points from both (all) cyclists.


* Other *

* Where a NT coach seriously abuses their position, their position as NT coach may be transferred to another manager.  Complaints about a NT coach should be factual, and not just because 'your' cyclist didn't get selected.

So, there weren't any nominations for the USA for the ongoing season so Codex, the top-ranked guy, was selected by default.

However, he didn't realize this (he told me this via message; he also said he doesn't have time to do the job), so the US went without any entrants for the first two stages (and at this moment, there aren't any for the third).

So, game Admins, I'll be willing to take on the job for the rest of the season, unless Codex has changed his mind.

@Kekipi: You'll need to message Oska directly as he won't be watching these forum topics.
