We all know about height and weight doping and believe the majority of people consider that if this is purposely done then its cheating and I’m sure things are under way to improve this, but what about mile doping?
People using simulators to get better virtual hardware to race with…I’ve seen people with several billion drops and jump multiple levels over night. You can spot people doing this on their Youtube channels. They then use this better virtual hardware to race with.
So getting virtual hardware in the game by ill means… a blurry line, is this cheating? To me any levelling up in game not earned only has one word.
What is Zwift doing about this? Surely it must be easy to spot and penalise users that do this. I am one person and I can see it. Like someone said, when high sums of money get involved, things get ugly very fast and we wouldn’t want to taint eSports would we.
I’ve seen this happen in top races already…I have already lost faith in eSports. So I don’t expect Zwift to do anything as it would create negative press. You are already sliding down the slope of credibility.
Cheating is cheating, its black and white, no excuses.
