Power-ups in races


(Bhaltair Gruamach) #1

In races that allow power-ups, eliminate the points bonuses from the rotation.  It’s so depressing to see that “+10” come up… and then watch as all of the competitors nearby pop-up Aero Boosts!

Luck of the draw & part of the tactics of racing. You have to think “shall I use that aero boost to bridge to the next group” or “shall I save it to get bank on the group if I get dropped” or “shall I keep it for the bunch sprint”.

Agreed!  But give all of the racers one of the three useful boosts.  Then we can strategize on how to use it to best effect.  It’s just a bummer when I get +10 Points and some of the other racers get Featherweights and use them to pull away up the next steep hill…  If I had been awarded an Aero Boost perhaps I could use it to pull them back on the other side of the hill.   …or suffer until I caught them and later use it to make a break…
