If they do plan to make steering a first-class citizen of the game, it would probably be a good idea for them to create keyboard shortcuts for steering for folks who have a keyboard, UI elements for steering for folks who don’t (maybe enable keyboard shortcuts for iPad Pro users with a keyboard while they are at it), and a steering API for 3rd parties to lower the barrier to entry.
Won’t work for everyone of course, but might help some folks ease into the experience until thos folks decide they want to spend the money on Zwift Play hardware, and at the same time allow Zwift to be more aggressive with introducing steering features in the game.
Non si può gestire, è solo un gioco!!! Siamo tutti su zwift per pedalare e non per vincere le gare, chi se ne frega. Certo la competizione piace a tutti, però se non siamo tutti (onesti) non importa. L’importante è pedalare per la mente, la salute, e divertimento.
I probably misunderstood your comment. I don’t think mandating Trainer Difficulty settings will work because of the differences in trainers. I am on Zwift to win races sometimes, and I don’t care about the settings of other riders or if they have steering. I race with low Trainer Difficulty.
Kinda feel we’ve gone off track a bit. I understand riders have a view on it but really keen to have this discussion from the perspective of organisers.
Having just fielded another debate on this, it’s not going to go away, AGAIN as an organiser I’m stuck in the middle…
I belive there is meant to be some PD improvements coming. We did a TTT tonight half riders with steering half not it was awhul at times without steering out the draft in the gutter and all sorts. First time i’ve noticed it that bad.
I’m going to suggest for next week the riders don’t use it.
Two things need to happen the PD needs to be better for steering and non steering to compete plus some sort of 3rd party or keyboard commands to allow more riders access to it.
So if Zwift defaults to steering always on, are you asking - in order to be not stuck in the middle - that Zwift remove the option for organizers to turn off steering so that there’s nothing to argue about?
A lot of the rules are set by zwift or at least zwift have an overriding position if they want so would be good to hear future plans for steering with the 2 biggest series on zwift disabling it seems zwift are pulling back on steering with the announcement that zrl won’t use it unless teams all opt into it for steering leagues.
I not sure I like the idea for zwift to end up with steering and non steering races there is not the volume of riders to meet that demand.
