You have to pick,
one skater (male and female) for every distance in the Worldcup. So you
have: 500m Male, 1000m Male, 500m Female, 1000m Female, 1500m Male, 5km/10km
Male, 1500 Female and 3km/5km Female. (other World Cup races like the team pursuits, massstart etc will not count in this game).
Each skater has a transfervalue that represents the skater's
ability to gain WC points for you. This value is based on his/her achievements in the past season(s).
The method of calculation of the skater values is explained here.
If the organisation commitee has the opinion that when during the season a skater is performing
beyond expectation the value of this skater can be changed. This will only be done by exception
and will only happen at a transfer moment, and a value change takes effect *after*
the transfer. (so if a team where the skater is in doesn't change, he keeps to old value)
If you want to buy a skater that is not on the list, please contact the organization.
If you buy a skater for, say the 500 meter,
you don't score the points this skater gets on the 1000 meter. You can,
however, put the same skater in your team on more distances, but you have
to pay for each distance.
In the skaterslist
you find, for every distance, the costs in eurodollars for every skater(F/M).
But beware....there might be some skaters in the list that quit skating
this summer. At the links page
you'll find the links that might give you some clues!
At the regular World Cups the skater get the official ISU-World cup points. (note that the awarded ISU points have been changed this season)
If a distance is skated twice in a World Cup weekend half points are given (like for sprint races mostly)
At the WCh Single Distances double points (max 120per distance)are given,
and also 'WC' points will be given at the Worldchampionships
Sprint and Allround (at 1500 and long distances).
This means: WCh Sprint: each distance (held twice) max 120 pt and at WCh Allround:
3k/5k Ladies and 5K/10k Men: max 60pt, 1500m max 120 (double because 1500 is only once)
The official ISU results will count, so if at a later date
a skater is removed from the results because of doping, WCSC points
will be changed accordingly.
You are obliged to buy
a skater for each distance. You'll get a budget of 35 million €$ to spend on your team.
Joining this game is for free.
At the end of the season, the person with the most points gets the professor Nils Lid Hjort award
(as in eternal fame and glory ;))) for being the best coach in the season
2018/2019. You can't earn real money or big prizes. Honour is at stake.
We might also award in other honourous categories.
