The troubling thing here is that, yet again, WE (the paying subscriber base) are left in the dark when it comes to major updates and/or changes.
Zwiftpower changing hands is a HUGE deal to those of us that race and use the site for legitimate results. As a paying subscriber, I’d like to know where my money is going. Is ZP going to continue to operate as it has, only in-house? Or is Zwift going to scrap it because only a ‘small percentage of Zwift users race?’
If Zwift has taken over ZP, there is absolutely NO reason why we should be finding out through hearsay or third party sources. Zwift should be releasing a statement with their plan and intentions for ZP and how it’s going to effect community racing moving forward.
Lastly, I’m sick of being led on, lied to, having information withheld and generally being treated as though my voice doesn’t matter because Zwift already has my money. They’ve made it clear that their top priority is acquiring new subscribers. They’ve done this by essentially ignoring the requests and demands of the community or riders and racers that made Zwift what it is.
I want this to be abundantly clear: Zwift IS NOT the community. The community IS Zwift. If a viable alternative to Zwift emerges and large teams decide to move to that platform, they will take the very thing that makes Zwift great with them - the COMMUNITY. We are the heart and soul of the Zwift platform and that is something that Eric Min & co. shouldn’t ever forget.
