I spend most of my time racing on Zwift. I’ve rode over 4000 miles on it and the only thing I really get upset with is the poor draft effect.
I’m 61KG and have used both a power meter and smart trainer. Racing mainly in B races I can generally finish top 10 but as groups are split and smaller packs of 4-6 riders form I always see issues with draft arising which completely spoils the realism of Zwift - especially when I’ve completely spent all my effort in racing for past 45 mins!
I don’t know if it’s because I’m so light weight but if I’m towards the back end of a 6 man split and we’re all doing around 3.5 - 4w/kg if our break rolls through a single rider, they have a massive impact on my draft effect from the group I’m perfectly drafting. To the point where I seemingly stick like glue to their rear and then need to pump out 6w/kg to break from them and try to get back on the group I was perfectly racing with! It ends up spoiling things as I’m losing so much energy having to make huge spikes in power to overcome this flaw.
Can these issues be looked at with urgency as it’s really annoying as immersive as Zwift is, this just breaks the reality and is a huge shame
