After riding on Zwift for close to 4 months on my smart trainer, I did a little research on how XP points work. To my surprise it is “ALL” about distance (km) and doing laps or sprints(on volcano circuit).
You have called the island Wattopia, and smart trainers begs for climbs. So why doesn’t climbs count? I get 3 times as many XP points per hour riding doing the flats as doing climbs … that is a little demotivating … especially since you need level 12 (almost there) to do the “Alpe du Zwift”
My suggestion is to include climbs in the calculation of XP points. What about 20XP or 30 XP points per 100m climb? That should motive climbers!
