Here are my suggested improvements to the event module and general ride/race ideas I would like to see -
1). Reverse route selection. Variety is the spice of life and only being able to set up an event in the forward direction is a limitation.
2). Full event descriptions or a drop down tab to expand on short description of an event. Riders and racers need to know full descriptions of the events they’re participating in or else the event could pass in a blur and a bad experience may result.
3). Automatic category tagging. When you select a ride/race you would like to take part in you will be presented with a simple category A/B/C/D choice. Once selected your name is edited with ride name (i.e BTW) and your category selected letter (i.e C).
4). Adding a category letter to your surname with brackets changes the background color where your name and statistics are shown in game.
Category (A) = Red
Category (B) = Orange
Category © = Green
Category (D) = Blue/Dark Blue
This can help group leaders get a quick visualization on participants ability and control the pace of the ride if necessary it also gives racers an idea of what level a rider is at that’s within there vicinity,especially useful if your on a small laptop and struggling to see the writing.
5). Event world switching. The community is key to Zwift so if the idea of having a choice of worlds/courses from day to day isn’t a workable option then how about events that can use world selection.
So how would it work ?
You login as normal on the course calendar schedule and select the ride/race you’d like to participate in. Once your ready to join a selected event your ride is saved and your moved to the appropriate world/course to take part in the event.
Once the event has finished you get a timed window and once it expires your activity is saved and your placed back on the original course that’s scheduled.
