Not just me then. That little bit of extra adrenaline was great for getting me started.

Change is difficult, especially changing the look, feel, and image of TheSufferfest. Rolled with shortening the name to SUF, changing the flag, etc. I’m trying give the SYSTM a chance - a lot of great looking features but I’m struggling to overcome the shift away from Sufferlandria. Maybe the ToS 2022 will make things feel right.

Nicky, I couldn’t agree more. I’ve never been in one of these forum things. I just trying to figure out if “they” have changed the workout #s. They don’t seem to match the original 4DP%s?

If by ‘right’ you mean full of Pain, Misery, Agony, Honor, Glory and Victory then, yeah, it should.

For me, it would be okay without the download but you should get the streaming working reliably.

My Android box (NVidia Shield, Systm sideloaded, gigabit ethernet connection) and tablet (Samsung, 5Ghz Wifi)) both have buffer/connection problems.
I use them in the same places for Netflix (4k) and Youtube (4k) without hickups, only Systm gives problems. Roughly 3-5 dropouts (and deteriorating video quality) every training.

I’m in Belgium and my internet connection is 75MBps and (almost) always stable.

Spot on Diana! We wanted to create an environment that anyone and everyone would feel comfortable training in. Of course, we will always cater for those that long for suffering!

Just a question : where are now the volcano climbing and the speed demon plans ?
I am not able to find them anymore…

They don’t exist, they’ve been subsumed into the building blocks plans instead. I’m not actually sure what the direct proxies are supposed to be now and I’ll probably have a solid look for them somewhere down the line if they’re not re-instated or we’re not told precisely what to use instead.

I wanted both of those too, so I’ve stacked them on my calendar in advance.
For now you can use this link to add them to your calendar, though how long that remains functional I don’t know.

Thank you Jon for your answer and your link.

OK, I switched to TR about 2 months ago because, despite of good results using suff, I found that the plans in suff were too short, and too many feew ones. I hoped that the new software would solve that problem and that I will go back to suff again, because ther are many things that I really appreciate (humor, music…). But that just seem to be worse with the new soft which is, in my humble opinion, just a marketing change and not at all a real progress towards better training.
Very desapointing
(and sorry for my english, i am french).

For now, if you log in to your Sufferfest account, and select training plans as before (from the web), they’re still there.
Not sure if we’re meant to be doing that or not, so coaches shoot me if that’s not something I shouldn’t be highlighting. Too late now ….:slight_smile:

which allows us to apply the old plans quite happily (well it does for me)

Stability and usability have taken a MASSIVE DIVE into negative territory. If these CRITICAL issues are not already TOP OF THE BUG FIX LIST, then I’m taking my suffering elsewhere.

  1. VIDEO STABILITY. Need I say more? This is a recurring issue that is MUCH WORSE now. The old SUF fix doesn’t work (logout/uninstall/log back in). This is at the heart of your business - if you are grinding through Nine Hammers and the video freezes… that’s not the suffering I signed up for.

  2. QUICK ACCESS to RECENT Or FAVORITE workouts: Link to the workout from the calendar so I don’t need to search again for one I did recently. SUF had this quick-link from the “Passport” tab showing recent workouts. This is for people who don’t LIVE in the PLANS world. This issue is up there with the general issue of navigating the workouts - horrible… show recents up top, give us the ability to set favorites,… (again this is for many of us who are a la carte in our workout selection, and don’t use the plans)

  3. WORKOUT screen USABILITY - e.g. END/SAVE/SETTINGs during a workout: I’m pressing tiny little buttons on my screen way more during routine use of the workout screen. SUF used to have BIGGER buttons, also the settings dialogue would move away if you clicked anywhere in the screen, now I need to find the tiny “X” to close it out. END/SAVE is now a few extra button presses- small buttons hard to find on the screen (black on black…) - you need to PAUSE first, SUF had fewer clicks for this use-case and it was just easier on the suffering brain.

PLEASE PLEASE fix these issues. Too much of the wrong kind of suffering and I’m headed to the mountains via another app…

David,
Super exciting to see the changes…very well thought out. Once I’m over my prostate cancer surgery I’ll be all in and working hard in SYSTM for a productive 2022 season!
