Zwift Community Live Test Labs is developing the Zwift Community racing scene as an Esport.

In the same spirit of early Zwift racing development, thru broadcasts & community innovation, these races look to push into next level of Zwift racing Esports. Just like the first ever race broadcast, with innovation like Watopia lap finish banner meetups, Strava tracked events, and synchronized timing from third-party sites; Zwift Community Live will be adding something new in-game and broadcasts on a regular basis to test. This will be done with the aim to have the most fun & competitive racing on Zwift. We will be looking specifically for your feedback on how well we have accomplished this goal!

Each week we will have tweaks to the game to encourage more tactics, skill, and entertainment in Zwift racing. Using our experience and community feedback in grassroots development of Zwift racing broadcasts, we will strive toward the best courses and game settings for the most dynamic race situations. We will be testing week after week to prove concept on this new Esport. Pertinent information on settings will be given so racers know what to expect on crucial knowledge, like what power-ups are on...but we want blind tests on other aspects. These other changes will be hinted about, so you can pick up on them thru racing well. By taking risks for rewards you will discover new ways of getting an advantage individually and as a team. This is done so that rather than positive or negative feedback based on confirmation bias and placebo, we want to see the best racing in results so we can quickly come up with the most entertaining racing and competition found on Zwift. We want your results in the experience of the race to speak for themselves!

All races will be broadcast on Zwift Community Live channels, pick your favorite platform and tune in for your race and share it with all your friends to watch how the race and the community esports test labs unfolds!

This week all power-ups are on except, XP boost and drafting power up. Keeping only offensive power-ups with a few other more subtle changes we are hoping will open up the race a bit more :)
