Swizzlestix Posted May 24, 2013 Share Posted May 24, 2013 (edited) As a player in the European server, with the recent update, I actually decided to spill a little money on platinum. Looking at the choices however, have left me a little confused. http://puu.sh/30cyo/964123bb47.jpg I did a little math, and the '20 bonus platinum' is actually not correct. Since 75 platinum is half of 150, you would expect the price of 150 platinum to be double the price of 75. However, as you can see, this is not the case; the 150 platinum deal sells for an added Euro on top of this expected amount. For the base 75 plat : 75/3.99 = 18.80 platinum per Euro For the deal Not including the 20 platinum, 150/8.99 = 16.69 platinum per Euro Without the 20 extra platinum, the 75-plat offer is actually worth it more than the 150 offer, so immediately the 20 platinum starts to act as part of the base price With the 20 'extra' plat: 170/8.99 = 18.91 plat per Euro the difference between the two prices is 0.11 plat per Euro 0.11 x 8.99 = 0.99 So technically, the 'bonus platinum' amounts to 0.99 extra platinum, instead of the advertised 20. I feel this is unfair as it's advertised as 20 times more than the actual bonus amount, and from feedback from US players, it sounds more fair over there. Please remedy this, as users will be fooled into buying less of a deal than they are being offered. Edited May 24, 2013 by Swizzlestix Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
