I am a long time user of Zwift (over a year) and it’s been great. However, since launch it’s been less stable for me and in the last two rides three have just crashed half way through my workout.
I am doing the "12 Week FTP Builder (Advanced) series and I’m on the 5th week, 2nd day. About 8 miles in the thing just crashes and doesn’t recover.
I had the same thing happen last Friday - well into the workout and it crashed.
Over the year I have been on Zwift I never had a single crash (in beta) but two in three days lowers my confidence in the software, especially when I’m following a plan and my ride today was just kinda wasted.
What I also find frustrating is that Zwift does store this, according to my log, but seems to just take an early snapshot - it recorded my ride as 1.6 miles even though I had done well over 8 miles. At my humble pace that’s a lot of peddling lost. It would seem to me that Zwift could at least record something (locally) on a regular basis so, even if it crashes, there’s a reasonable chance to approximate to what was ridden.
My environment, network conditions, hardware, etc are all unchanged. The only things that have changed are a) Zwift updates and b) load (there were about 330 people online tonight).
Everyone has their own preferences - some like the gaming aspect, some like the hard work and some appreciate the “numbers”. I’m all about the second two of those (no interest in the gaming but really quite eager to record what I do over time). Just “losing” 7 miles or so is very frustrating.
