I have raised this issue with support but they now appear to be ignoring me so I thought I’d try here.
There are two Running Badges missing from the list of total badges available - which also affects the totals for Zwifters who cycle exclusively.
There are 13 Running Badges listed on the Zwift support pages here.
And here is a grab of those running-specific badges:
However Zwift for runners only shows 11 badges - the grab below came from a fellow Zwifter who runs and cycles:
According to Zwift support, there are 12 General Badges, 17 Cycling Badges and 13 Running badges(above) which would give a base total of 42 badges available.
There are also 10 ‘Extra Credit’ badges that only add to your overall total once they are completed.
So the absolute maximum number of achievements available should be 52.
But if you look at my running friend’s achivements and do some arithmetic - were he to complete the 100 Credit and Everesting ‘Extra Credits’, his maximum total would only be 50 - not 52.
This is all very boring I am sure, but there are few points here:
There are two badges missing in ‘Running Achievements’.
There is no mention anywhere on Zwift that the two missing badges (‘Going to Distance’ or ‘Olympian’) are ‘Extra Credits’.
And more annoying than any of that, Zwift forces everybody - whether they only cycle or only run on Zwift to have the same number of achievements to complete as a Zwifter who does both.
Meaning if you never run on Zwift, it is impossible to achieve 100% completion of the badges. And if you never cycle on Zwift, it is impossible to achieve 100% completion of the badges.
If Zwift can manage the ‘Extra Credit’ system to only add to the total when they complete the achievement, surely they can manage to keep the totals for either running or cycling separate until that Zwifter signs up for the opposite discipline?
Thereby allowing cyclists to achieve 39 out of 39. And similarly, allowing runners to achieve 25 out of 25 (if they fix the missing two badges). Leaving the hard-core cyclist/runners to aim for 52 out of 52 - again, if the missing 2 bug is fixed.
