“Love that effect, the recognition that you’re in that zone is a nice boost and spurs me on”
- If you don’t have REAL tunnel vision while doing HIIT you are not working out hard enough. When you have REAL tunnel vision and are feeling nauseated because your heart rate is at its MAX the last thing you want is an additional dizzying effect on 90% of the screen. It does not “spur you on” it makes you back off slightly because you are already pushing yourself to the limit … on your own, for real. It is an unwanted distraction. And it doesn’t make sense to me - well it is starting to - why it is there.
“Nice to see the developers put in a bit of effort to understand what you’re going through.”
- I realize this is a virtual reality program, but making you “feel” like you have tunnel vision is taking the virtual part a little too far.
“What’s interesting is that you have given no explanation as to why it’s bad. Nothing aside from ‘it’s annoying’.”
- I just did. I thought it was obvious, but I guess you needed the explanation.
“That’s the level of critique I’d expect from a child.”
- I’d respond to that but I’m out of troll food.
“What is so bad about it that we should all make this sacrifice for you?”
- If you would actually read my op beyond the subject line, you would see I’ve asked for an on/off option, as has everyone else in all the other posts about this. And “sacrifice”… ?
I’d love to see a well publicized vote on if people actually like this feature or not. Not a tally from the latest post, it seems all the initial reactions to the post are against the feature, but then a week later the people who “like it” seem to chime in. I find that interesting.
If you search all the other posts on the subject it seems that overwhelmingly people don’t like it.
I really like Zwift and what they are doing. I just wish they would add an ON/OFF option for the people doing HIIT. And I’m far, far from being alone here.
