Distribution of Zwift PowerUps

Distribution of Zwift PowerUps

In a recent “In the Pens” podcast host Greg Leo asked the question: just how are powerups distributed in Zwift? We decided to find the answer and went straight to the source: Game Master Jon Mayfield himself. Here’s his answer:

Note: in mid-2019 Zwift began allowing event organizers to customize the distribution of powerups in their events. So while the chart above applies to free riding and is the default setup for events, specific events may distribute powerups differently.

What about “none of the above?” That definitely occurs.

Why do I keep getting the small bonuses and never any others?

So on a time trial bike you always get 10XP.
On other bikes your expectation value is 29% 10 XP, 1% 250 XP, total expectation value = 5.4 XP.
You get on average 4.6 XP more per banner by riding the time trial bike.

Yeah, I get 10XP WAY more than 29% of the time. Closer to 40%, probably

How does the distribution look, now that there also is a Breakaway Burrito? And is there a default distribution of the three event-only boosts?

Randomise is broken on MACs. Everytime on free roam I get the same order. Plus the random ride, no turns.
