Annoying popup message


(Mark Johnson) #1


Is this popup message going to be a permanent thing? It’s pretty annoying seeing this every 10 seconds or so. And I take it the messed up bike graphics is just a bug? The bikes look like they’re made from Legos. AppleTV4

What’s the date where you are?


(Paul Allen) #3

It’s for April Fools Day, Zwift does this kind of fun stuff every year.

This is so damn annoying!  I have a workout to do & this is a total waste of time. Let me opt out of this stupid shit


(Paul Allen) #5

I guess some people take life too seriously.

Ok, the dumb popup message I can see being a joke, even though it’s a day early. But the bike graphics? Um, ok. Whatever. I’ll just be glad when it’s all back to normal.

Wasted an hour trying to sort out these “bugs”. Perhaps a sense of humour failure on my part but I’m a bit pissed off.

Oh - it was an April fools?

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 That explains it.

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 Although I thought April fools were meant to fool people.

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 Or at least amuse them.

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 Not make them grit their teeth and hope to get through it without getting too annoyed

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 But the message that kept popping up

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 You know the one.

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 That gave instructions that didn’t work

 TAP THE NEWSPAPER ICON TO TOSS ONE AT THE TARGET

 And acted as a massive distraction - well that just caused me to abandon out of sheer irritation.

 Seriously - don’t change how the user interacts with the game just to have a flaccid April Fools non-joke. It’s just rubbish.

Don’t worry people, it will be all back to normal tomorrow and everything will be safe and sound. Now off to bed and try not to have nightmares about tossing newspapers and riding wonky bikes. Goodnight snowflakes.

More testing of April Fools jokes, please. This is pretty obnoxious.

I thought it was awesome.  Well, for anyone old enough to remember playing the game.  :).  Bonus xp was a nice touch.  Even one a Dogma F8.

It was genius I got an extra 200pts for hitting targets saved me riding  6/7 miles.

i was showing a friend how good Zwift was and we thought it was weird until I realised it was paperboy…

Mark Cavendish I hear even turned back for points…

i get people’s frustration also …but clever
