[RFE] We need a bike throw/rage-quit promo code or hotkey


(... david (aka "setuid")) #1

It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, but we need a way for the angry on-course to diffuse that anger when they quit, using a ragequit style hotkey + avatar animation to go with it, throwing bike down on the ground, crossing arms in anger and disgust, and vanishing from the course in a puff of smoke.

Maybe we could get their face to go from normal color to bright red as their temperature rises, then POP! Just like the rage-quit built into “LIttle Big Planet”!

This might be funny to watch for them, vs. having them spew a line of profanity at other riders on course in anger, as they ragequit the game.

A single-use promo code could work, or a hotkey (though that could be accidentally hit, unless they type ‘R-A-G-E’ or some sequence in order).

Though cheeky, it does serve a purpose. It’s a bit humorous, and could help keep the frustrated entertained with Zwift vs. offending others as they stomp off, enraged.

“Once you’ve got nowhere else to go… don’t forget that #OhioThrow!”

Carry on! Great work with the iOS release!

I want the ‘pro experience’ by having a neutral support car on the course that randomly knocks riders off their bikes

Speaking of the real ‘pro experience’, i would love to see people running along with me, in idiotic suits, holding flags!

Would be cool to have NPCs on the course just to make it seem more pro, unlike real life - unless you’re pro.
