Took 55 minutes to finish 2.0x. Stuck there NO 2.5X for drops. D. Maria.
I was with Jacques group and it did not go to 2.5x - maximum was 2.0, that’s as high as it went for the entire 40km.
The PP multiplier only advances if you stay close to the PP. For it to hit the 2.5x level you must have ridden close for a total of 35 minutes (or that was the original concept when it was reported on Zwift Insider in 2020).
The whole point of the Drops Multiplier is to encourage riders to group up around the Pace Partner and not ride off the front (or drop off the back).
Same here, did 100k with Yumi went to 2.0 and stuck there.
56:26 with pace partner, 42.7km/h average speed, 40.15km distance. I stayed absolutely latched to the pace partner the entire time. I don’t have the strength to ride away at the moment. I watch everything carefully.
It’s either a bug or the feature was changed to have a different maximum limit.
The drops multiplier in pace partner groups stops at 2.0 actually. Tried it with the Apple TV app.
Is that a recent change?
I’m sure I’ve had it registering 2.5x on PP rides not that long ago?
seems to have happened in yesterday’s update
My counter stopped at 2.0 as well.
Maybe Zwift can just edit the release notes 2.5 => 2.0? Bug fixed
Happened to me this morning like so many others it seems. At the 25m mark, the multiplier increased to 2.0 and remained at 2.0 for the remainder of my 1hr ride, so 35m with the 2.0 progress bar filled… though i suppose 2.0 forever is better than it reverting to 1.0 prior to this update!
Testing this change prior to release would have been as easy as riding a bike.
they probably DID ride a bike… but only for 25 minutes!
Same here. Did 40+ min ride with D. Taylor. Bar full at 2.0 and nothing happened.
From Zwift on Twitter - " Hey Mark! Our team is aware of this issue and working to fix it ASAP."
I’m always limited to 2.5x no matter what I do
Wait, so the current ‘bug’ is reaching 2.0 like normal and then staying at 2.0x for the rest of your ride?
And people want it changed back to 2.5 for 5 min and then back to 1x? (something something math math this new way is better
The current bug is that it reaches 2.0x and stays at that level. As per the release notes from the update it should go up to 2.5x and stay at 2.5x.
Oho! So not dropping back down to 1x? Gotcha. Yeah, that’s even better better
(Now I’m angry, fix this ZWIFT!!!1!11!!1eleven)
