Updated to the new Mac client this morning and the power seems off and I can’t quite pinpoint what the improvement was supposed to be, if any.
There was a group ahead of me, in which the leader was pulling 3.5w/kg in the front. I was chasing at 4.7w/kg and not gaining ground. We were on the flats.
Climbing the Col clockwise I was working my tail off trying to gain ground on riders ahead of me who were also pushing less watts/kg and it would take almost the entire climb to catch them
It is no easier to stick in the draft than before
Coasting downhill seems different, but I’m too new to the clockwise direction to say for sure
If there has been a new change, and if it is more ‘realistic’ I think it might be detracting from the game element. It’s a tough challenge to mix real world and virtual world and make it compelling, fun and just “real” enough.
