PRO CYCLING MANAGER 2013 GUIDE

Multiplayer
Multiplayer modes
There are several online multiplayer modes available in Pro Cycling Manager 2013. You can compete in a track race, a stage race or a single stage.

When you start a multiplayer game you access a card system. The cards are riders you can use in your online games and you can access new cards and riders during your games. The objective is to form a team using these cards to compete against other players. This is "Armada" mode, which was first included in the 2012 version but which has been expanded this year.
1) This screen displays your full "deck" of cyclists and the cards are automatically ranked from the strongest to the weakest rider.

2) Here, you form your team for the race by dragging and dropping the cards in your deck into this area. You can click the cross next to each card to remove it.

3) This shows the number of coins you have available to buy new cards.
For the 2013 season, new rules have been added to the ranked games to make things more equal and to encourage challenges: access to the top riders will be unlocked progressively as the games progress, and the number of stars allowed in your roster will be limited in the same way as caps are applied in American sports. Races will therefore be more highly contested and your managerial skills will prove essential if you are to reach the top of the world rankings!

Armada mode is even better this year! A Track mode has now been incorporated along with a Tour mode, which allows you to create stage races. Players will then be able to take part in several tours simultaneously on dedicated servers and play at their own pace!
