With this week’s release, we’ve made some subtle improvements that should smooth the way your avatar moves when someone is overtaking you.
When your avatar bumps other players within a pack, your lateral movement is much less likely to be so drastic that you’re way off to the side and seemingly out of the draft. This should reassure you that your avatar is staying in the draft of the riders ahead of you.
When drafting behind other riders, the draft logic should minimize the likelihood that you will lose speed if you get too close and bump up against them.
To be clear, this is not eliminating the “sticky draft” that happens when you overtake slower riders. Improvements to pack dynamics will continue, and sticky draft is among those targeted areas.
