Ghost boats, real rowers and bots
When rowing on EXR’s virtual waters, you are accompanied by other boats. Some of them are ghost boats, some of them are real rowers while others are bots. Here’s how to spot the difference.
Ghost boats are white boats that appear when rowing through a sprint segment’s first arch. They row steadily at your personal record’s average speed for this specific segment. The ghost boat only appears if you already did this sprint before and row on a supported rowing machine.
More ghost boat functions will be added at a later point.
Spot real rowers who train on the same map as you. They look just like your avatar and are indicated by their follow status, name and country.
On the mini map, a green dot next to their name indicates that you follow them. A blue dot means that you don't follow them.
In Just Row, a list of nearby rowers shows you max. 6 other real rowers who are close to you. In Training mode, max. 4 other real rowers are listed. The white line represents your position with everyone underneath being behind you and everyone above being in front of you. The list is deactivated by default. Turn the list on or off for each mode in the interface settings.
Bots are blue computer-driven boats. They row at random speeds and keep you company.
