A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Starts at 79 I believe
Froome is 85 though. So Don't be mislead by the scale of things. Compared to the daily that means if we take Froome = 83, then Kwiatkowski is 78 and Aru 77.

I've already copied the daily 2014 DB stats from pcm 2013 to pcm 2014
Unfortunately the game is not good for career yet. There is a transfer bug..
AI riders won't accept AI contracts. Just human ones lol.

Also, the game crashes every 2nd time i load a stage. 1st time goes fine, can ride and goes fluently. The 2nd stage or next race, crash while loading, ALWAYS. So after 1 stage I always have to restart the game :D

After the first patch Froome had 85, Kwia, Aru, Maijka and some other all 80. Contador and Nibali 84, Uran 83 and so on.

If you're planning on starting a career right away then no, there are still major bugs that will ruin that experience.

But you can play online, stages & stage races. I'm playing the 2014 TDF with Lampre right now (in stage race mode) and it's quite enjoyable with the whole freshness/recovery system.

Still playing 2013, and having a blast with the 2005 mod. Ullrich vs Armstrong immense battle. Vino was in yellow but lost over a minute on the first proper mountain stage. Hoping to go on the attack later to put Discovery under pressure :)

Is there anyone who knows where to find a good database for PCM14 or cares to share one? :cool: I started on modifying it myself but gave up after a few hours. I mean, if Sagan has 75 for downhilling, or Froome 82 in the hills, you know it will take ages to make the game 'realistic'.

The problem is PCM Daily has:

1) lost the owner and creator of the site PCM Daily and is now under new management
2) the same owner and creator also managed the team around the database. Now the DB team is in shambles. They even asked PCM Focus to help, but they have their own project

So the conclusion is
3) Expect no pcm daily db for the time being, and if there is, expect it to be of lower quality then it used to be.

My protip:
wait for the french community database of mede33.

That's not good news DT, I was coming in to ask if PCM have done a '14 version of Le Tour for their PCM 13 db, guess not then.

Yh PCM Daily went well downhill imo. Keep saying a DB V2 for PCM 13 yet not even out. Last year it was out way before this.
Froome is the man get prepared for this in the next few years he is the best GT rider for long time.

I can personally state, this DAily DB is better than last years's to, while the crew lost two members, they gained 6 others which made for more details to be added than ever before. Also just for the sake, the owner and creator of past databases, did **** all last year/two , and 90% of job was done by a guy called lluuiiggii, just sayin'

And also funnily enough, it's PCM Focus who wanted to co- lead the DB's together, bu it was a no go from start.

( for anyone else, definitely try out the French DB, Daily and French Db differ , but both are/should be quality! )

Well there might be a V2 still, but it was to be done by the owner that left, there still could be a release for PCM 13, but PCM 14 DB was priority I believe.

Since owner did change, and the main guy behind DB lluuiiggii has lost motivation, it was hard to find new team again quickly, hence the slower release of db. Having now more than ever members working on it for free, the release will be done in next days.

And here's the link with all the features of theDAily Expansion Pack so far:

Im currently still playing PCM 12, is there a 2014 database I can add onto this or is the PCM 14 game now fixed all the bugs like the contract issue? I don't mind buying the latest version if it runs well in career mode.

I think 14 is as stable as it's going to get. I've not played that much of it(due to lack of time)but I think the final patch(as it stands) sorted out the contract bug.
