  Pauwels leads Belgian blitz!


Moimentalovers confirm Velogames:CX win after World Championship weekend.

The final Velogames:CX, in association with Cyclocross Magazine, update is now completed, and those teams stocked full of Belgians were a sure bet to head the World Championship weekend standings.

The top performer of this eason, Kevin Pauwels, underlined a fine campaign with victory at Koksijde, leading home a clutch of his countrymen as the Belgians top the top seven places in the Elite Mens' World Championship

The winner of Velogames:CX is Pinoeze, with his team Moimentalovers. The campaign was managed to perfection by our winner, using his transfers in the first 75% of the season before picking a solid crew to lead him through the final three weekends of the season.

I will be confirming all weekly and overall winners this weekend, so stay tuned if you are at the top of any leaderboards!

Make sure to vit the subscriptions page of Velogames:CX's major supporters, Cyclocross Magazine, to get your fix of cyclocross over the summer months - and also of course to keep up to speed with who's hot and who's not as the Velogames:CX 2012-13 series approaches later this year!


  Scoring clarifications and comments


Firsty, many apologies for some weekend's updates being delayed during the latter half of this inaugural edition of Velogames:CX.

For recent weeks, a lack of time meant that I was not able to commit the time necessary to manage the game, including email support questions and timely updates, in a manner I'd have liked. So sorry about this, and sorry if I did not respond to your email comments in a timely manner.

As such, a few corrections were needed to be worked through prior to this final update.

The adjustments I have made are:

1. Implemented correct Weekend 6 scoring to include late transfers for several teams that had not had their transfers correctly applied at the time.

2. Corrected points for Bart Aerounts and Jim Aernouts for a misclassification of Bart's second place in Vlaamse Druivenveldrit. The points were initially awarded to Jim, so Bart's points have been increased and Jim's decreased as a result of this correction.

The other major problem that caused confusion this year was the retrospective policing of transfers for teams that went over the 16 transfer limit. I reversed these transfers for each scoring update so leaderboards were correct, but this is obviously not the best way to do things. The good news is that I've now built a system applies transfer quotas automatically, with validation on the transfers submission page so users cannot exceed their quota. This shoul dbe working before the Velogames road season begins, so will definitely be in place for next season's Velogames:CX series.

I would love to receive your comments (good and bad!) regarding the game and any suggestions for improvement you have, so please get in touch using the contact form link in the top menu!


  Many thanks to Cyclocross Magazine!
