Hello players!   Got a full slate on my update today, so here we go…

Sire Special!

All sires/DS that would normally be 175 points/credits or less are half off until the new year.  All DDS's that would normally be 100 points/credits ot less are half off during the same time period.   The prices shown for these sires are already has the discount  applied.  You have to acquire them in real time, not with the bidding process (they are the same cost there).  

Special Races for 2018

I am hoping I can get to those posted next weekend.  I was able to get to them early last year, but no such luck this year due to a variety of other things.

Equinics Update

First off, I would like to thank Mano for being rock solid for years when helping with the Equinics.    He has a much better understanding of their nuances than anyone else, and his hard work in the events has often gone without fanfare.   Unfortunately, he had to step aside this year, and things looked bleak that these would be able to run at all.

Thankfully, long time player metallinut stepped forward to try and take it over.    He’s doing a great job but, unfortunately, things have changed greatly in the sim over the last several years and have made his job more difficult than I anticipated.

Although we have a very strong residency base still, we have lost a couple of large, long time residencies.  After some research on my end, it has become obvious that these dynamic shifts have made maintaining the integrity and fairness of the Equinics a quagmire we had previously not had to face.

We still plan on running them in late February, but I need time to consider a lot of things : are we running too many races still?  Should smaller residencies entries be limited?    Are there other issues that should be addressed?   I will be talking with metallinut, kingab, and devovo over the next week to see what we can do to manage these shifting dynamics.   I will happily listen to other  opinions on changes/ideas via email.   Once decided, metallinut will take over the process again with a much better blueprint of how to attack things considering these new dynamics.

Unfortunately,  the end of the year is the busiest time for me in many regards (special races, sire reratings, year end-game rollover, holidays, year-end commitments at work), so exact Equinics details may take time to develop.  We will try to get out a formalized Equinics schedule out by the end of the year (which I know is late, but getting this right is far more important than being hasty).   Just remember that the last week in February will include a lot of G1s.

Thanks for your patience, and you’ll likely be seeing some sire help requests coming up soon!
