I know there’s a lot of “riders disappearing during ride xxxx” threads in this forum, and most of them gets “solved” with “it’s a network issue”…
But I’ve discovered a bug that I’m able to reproduce.:
If I ride in Watopia and one of my friends ride in another world, and I click the “Fan view” on this friend ( thinking they are in Watopia ) first nothing happens as usual, and after a short while the riders surrounding me in Watopia disappears.
Sometimes the riders will restore but it’s seems they stay unstable.
Once I triggered this error, my friend jumped of and started a new ride in Watopia, and “boom” the screen went to fan view without me touching anything, and all the riders surrounding me showed up again.
I haven’t tested from other worlds than Watopia since that’s where the Alp is, and that’s what i ride 99% of the time
It’s not a problem for me, I just make sure to check if my friends are in the same world as me before hitting the “fan view”, but I would post it to inform you other Zwifters to prevent it from ruining a good ride.
The hopes of Zwift reading this and correcting the bug isn’t really realistic with regard to all the known issues that has been around for years
