  1. It's a quite long, but nevertherless, interesting article about the real cost of YOG 2018. https://www.jensweinreich.de/2019/10/18/the-real-costs-of-the-youth-olympic-games-2018-in-buenos-aires-at-least-115-billion-usd/
  2. Only to the end of 2019, not the whole season. However, the Swedish camp says she will not start in Tour de Ski. They will not force anything, so maybe she will first be back in the end of January or February.
  3. Ebba Anderson is likely out the rest of the year due to a knee injury. This was confirmed by the national team doctor, Magnus Oscarsson, today. It was during a training run at the national team camp in Bruksvallarna that Andersson fell and hit the knee where she has previously sustained an injury.
  4. It's due to stormy weather conditions on the competition days. The organisers could not guarantee the safety of the skiers and complete fairness for all skiers during their runs. https://www.oesv.at/news/wetterkapriolen-verhindern-freeski-weltcup-stubai/ (In German).
  5. Correct. After the two first races the managers are allowed to buy more biathletes from the top 10. I have considered some different options about the top 10 during the process of creating this: 1. Managers weren't allowed to buy more biathletes from the top 10 before WC stage 4. This would likely make managers consider if it was worth switching out a weak biathlete with a strong biathlete, as it could cost a lot of points because of the transfer system. 2. Buying biathletes from the top 10 would cost 2 transfers instead of 1. 3. Have a cap/maximum of Top 10 biathletes on a team. Managers were only allowed to have 5 top 10 biahtletes on their team at the same time. I'm aware that many managers will likely stock up on biathletes from the top 10, as many of them will likely perform well throughout the season. It could lead to very similar teams. I'm still not certain how much of an effect the limit of biathletes per nation and negative points from the transfer system could have on managers' will to buy biathletes from the top 10? As I have written earlier, this season is being used to see how the different systems works in this game. It's easier to see what works and doesn't after the season is over.
  6. team for Wisla: Daniel-André Tande Robert Johansson Johann André Forfang Robin Pedersen Thomas Aasen Markeng Marius Lindvik It's a bit of a surpise that Halvor Egner Granerud has not been selected. He was 15th in the overall world cup and 3rd best Norwegian last season. He was also the 3rd best Norwegian jumper in the summer grand prix, so I would have expected to see him here. However, he was 56th in the qualification last year in Wisla. It could be a reason. Besides, they probably want to see how the young Thomas Aasen Markeng can perform in the World Cup. It was most likely a decision between Granerud and Pedersen and they likely selected Pedersen because of Granerud's poor perfomance on the hill last year.
  7. Norway's team for WC 1: Tiril Eckhoff Emilie Kalkenberg Karoline Knotten Marte O. Roeiseland Ingrid Landmark Tandrevold Lars Helge Birkeland Erlend Bjoentegaard Johannes T. Boe Tarjei Boe Vetle S. Christiansen Johannes Dale Synnove Solemdal or Thekla Brun-Lie will join the women's team after the first IBU Cup 1 sprint. The best of the two on the sprint will get the last spot.
  8. Henrik L'Abee Lund has retired and Sindre Petersen is part of the development team this season, so Dale's spot in the WC team is somewhat safe. Norway is one of those nations who have 6 men in their Elite team, which is basically the WC team. This season it's: Lars Helge Birkeland Erlend Oevereng Bjoentegaard Johannes Thingnes Boe Tarjei Boe Vetle Sjaastad Christiansen Johannes Dale http://www.skiskyting.no/?module=Articles&action=Article.publicOpen&id=269 The reserves for the first WC are: Aleksander Fjeld Andersen Endre Stromsheim It's interesting to see that Sindre Petersen is not even a reserve for the first WC. I think the Norwegian coaches gave the two reserve spots to Andersen and Stromsheim because of their podium places in Sjusoen. Of course the biathletes in the Elite team are not safe at all if they do not perform up to the tough Norwegian standard in men's biathlon. There are a bunch of very good, young biathletes who are ready to take their spots.
  9. Just to clarify: Managers can select a maximum of 3 biathletes of the 19 in the template. Nation Biathlete Placement in Last Season's WC Women Dorothea Wierer 1. Lisa Vittozzi 2. Marte Olsbu Roeiseland 4. Hanna Oeberg 5. Paulina Fialkova 6. Kaisa Makarainen 7. Denise Herrmann 8. Franziska Preuss 9. Monika Hojnisz-Starega 10. Men Johannes Thingnes Boe 1. Alexander Loginov 2. Quentin Fillon Maillet 3. Simon Desthieux 4. Arnd Peiffer 5. Tarjei Boe 6. Benedikt Doll 7. Simon Eder 8. Julian Eberhard 9. Lukas Hofer 10. So managers can choose one of these options: 3 women and 0 men, 3 men and 0 women, 2 women and 1 men, 2 men and 1 women. Of course managers are not forced to select 3 biathles from the template. They can also choose to select only 2, 1 or no biathletes from the template above. I'm sorry if it wasn't clearly written. My mistake.
  10. 2019/20 Biathlon Manager Game is now open @heywoodu, @RobtheAggie, @Kirkpatrick, @Federer91, @Vojthas, @brunamoura, @hckosice, @Olympian1010, @Henry_Leon. Maybe @Werloc, @SalamAkhi, @Bohemia, @Monzanator are interested?

Lukas Hofer 10. *Number 3 from last year's Women's Overall World Cup, Anastasiya Kuzmina, has not been included, as she has retired. If any biathlete on the list above has retired, please let me know. The deadline for managers to select their team for the first WC is December 1st, h. 12:30 (GMT +1). Point and Transfer systems, Standing etc. Explained here: https://totallympics.com/index.php?/topic/1571-prediction-contests-biathlon-manager-game-discussion-thread/&do=findComment&comment=252111 The beloved Lord of BMG, Wumo, will post an updated standing after every individual in race in the World Cup. Exception! In case of two races are held on the same day, the standing will be updated after the last race of the day have been completed. The standing will include every manager's total points and the points the biathlete on his/her team have scored in that race. You can check the total points and individual race points of every biathlete in this document: BMG Biathlete Points.xlsx Notice! The document already contains a list of biathletes. This list is only provisional! It's not a 100% accurate representation of the final start lists for the sprints in the WC 1. Many federations have yet to select their team and injuries and illnesses can happen, so do remember to check IBU's datacenter for the official start lists. An updated version of the document will be published together with an updated standing of BMG.

  13. Yes, good, old, not always reliable, Google Translate. I should have joined the league now?
  14. Well, I don't have any autographs from any real athlete. My friend's autograph from when he was 9 years old doesn't count, because you know, he wasn't a real athlete. However, I did appreciate it at that time.
