No, surely not, Mike. That would indeed be weird.
I’m imagining that during development of a challenge they just insert existing info (like for the Climb Mt. Everest one) to set it up, then, close to go-time they replace the various lines and graphic elements with the new item, to avoid leaking stuff before time.
What with the Tron having been downgraded somewhat in its in-game capabilities since its initial release, it’s imaginable that they would now come up with a Tron-killer requiring even more effort.
But hey, this could all be baseless dreaming on a dull Friday afternoon.
And @Steve_Hammatt ‘s right. It would be a natural tie-in to launch a new in-game challenge with the new hardware. Buuuuuut, unless the hardware is ready for launch now, this puts James’ “in the very near future” into question. Or does “in the very near future” also translate as “Zoon”? So many questions…
Why would the contents of the email make any difference to the idea its sending was triggered by a bugged completion?
It’s possible the repeated completion notice wasn’t a bug, but when someone’s already got the item it’s notifying about it seems likely. As I said, I’ve had it happen to me for something I’d already completed or unlocked.
Given the number of bugs that crawl out of Zwift, it’s the simplest most plausible explanation. =)
I have received multiple notifications that I have completed the Tour California and the Tour Italy. No idea exactly what triggers them, but there is something that happens in the background that isn’t quite right.
I get challenge completion notices from time to time although they were completed years ago.
I go on occasionally and select a completed challenge just for the heck of it. Maybe doing so ,resets the back ground counter and when you meet the criteria for a 2nd or 3rd time, you get the notice.
I’ll switch and see if it happens.
