    If i read promo correct. If you charge 200 and spend 1 you get 400 pack so if you spend 1 silver on other char x8 that mean people can get up to 3.6k pack free? Guess you can get rich fast now

    More than that. You get every tier up to and including the amount you charged. So if you charge 200 gold you get 632 Packs per toon. Some people also have 16 toons on an account if they had 8 on both servers when they merged. This makes the maximum on an account 10,112 packs.

    Maybe they finally decided "it's only pixels, let's give them what they clearly want, 365 days a year of insane promo!"

    This has to have been a mistake. It would make a lot more sense if PWI had intended to require you to charge $200 for each character you want to redeem on (and it still would have been the best charge promo ever, but not as crazy as what we currently have). Right now it is utter madness, the prices of almost everything in game from boutique or keys rapidly readjusting themselves as items that used to be rare are suddenly commonplace. Inside of 2 days, price of scroll of tome, jaden crystal, and other items have been slashed by more than 50%, and we haven't even reached the final day of this promotion yet. I can believe PWI doing a great charge promotion to top other promotions done in the past, but they have no need to go miles beyond anything they've ever done before... a cash grab like this sets the bar so ridiculously high for themselves, how will they continue to generate cash flow from people charging unless they match or top this current offer? PWI should be trying to generate a consistent cash flow, to do something like this is a strong signal that they don't have confidence in their game and are just trying to squeeze a few drops out of existing players before doing something drastic with the game. Not a signal I would expect PWI to be trying to send to their players!

    PWI GMS, what gives? Was this promotion a mistake, or genuinely intended to function exactly as it does (single $200 charge = 632 packs per toon for every single toon on your entire account?).

    If this promotion isn't functioning as intended, will anything be done about it? Your silence is very dangerous...

    Don't be lazy. Just read promo description. Each tier one per character, not account! So, promo is going as intended.

    I thought it was obvious to pretty much everybody PWI really is on its last leg, if we see PWI servers running in 2020 I`ll be surprised. People are quitting left and right, game is riddled with issues and staff is yet to acknowledge most of them. Events get cancelled(?) or delayed to ridiculous extent, the "Archosaur Open" gathering for participants closed over 2 months ago. Many of the ppl who signed up quit/sold accounts meaning even if it was to run tomorrow, the event would be a joke.

    However PWE might of made a mistake here, the "we are having backend issues" is classic PWE. For those who havent checked the news recently, the summer promo was changed, you now need to spend the same amount of gold you charge per character up to 200 gold to get your packs. I really didnt expect PWE to be incompetent enough to actually accidentally run this promo but I may have been wrong in my assessment.

    So, some people charge 200 USD and get 10,000 packs. Some people charge 200 USD and get 632 packs. Seems fair.
  • shrimpybryanshrimpybryan Posts: 14 Arc User
    Heard they fixed to $200 per toon this afternoon.
  • wingdeath6wingdeath6 Posts: 49 Arc User
    Yeah, so they fixed it meaning it was definently not launching as intended and the spend rewards are messing up as well a friend got a random 10 star in her mail after spending like $60 and others arent getting spend rewards they qualify for as the Summer Heat post said either . So what we have here is yet another PWI fiasco gone to hell by bad implementation.

    A fiasco this bad... just do a rollback. Don't listen to the whining of greedy btches who got the 1000s of packs and don't want the rollback, they should have known it was too good to be true, hell even 632 packs for 200 gold feels too good to be true, but at least its within the realms of sanity, over 3000 packs for 200 gold is decidedly not within those realms. Do the rollback, reimburse the gold, and restart the promo for another 4 day period imo. To do anything else is incredibly, highly unfair to many many PWI players.

    As usual, I am not surprised at all, this just PWE being PWE. I guess that the only difference now is that they probably have realized that this game is completly doomed, so just as others are thinking, they are just traying to get some money from everyone a few months before they put one of those ''With heavy heart...'' posts about PWI shot down.

    The Irony of all this is that the moment that PW China put those keys and their lovely foils in them, was the beginning of the end for PWI. When you have both a Developer and a Publisher that are stupid enough to not understand how the in game economy of PWI Works and that if you turn every single in game ludopath into a billionare, not only you will bring massive inflation on gold but also fast devaluation on many of those pack and key items.
    But even if PWE dont give a rat about all that, you would at least expect them to have enough common sense to realize that if they make every single ludopath casher in game billionare, MANY OF THOSE CASHERS WOULD NOT NEED TO CASH ANYMORE... since thay are drowning in their own big notes and pack items


    So that is what you get at the end, a company that is so desperate, that will try to do everything in their power to milk the few cashers that are left. :D

    You are a whiney b. as well. IJS. Read your words before you make such statements.

    And no, rollback won"t happen. Too many real transactions have been done as well as in-game transaction in week-time span. It is too late for rollback now.

    And about games being unfair. Pay to play games are unfair. Who has the money to spend vs. ppl who just can"t spend. Even this fact itself make this game unfair.
