    What time are the discounts going to show up? It is 9:30 PST and they are not showing up yet.

    Cool! With the 50% sale on the pack (not going to play it but getting just to have everything and to support the company) and the additional 15% off on the Zen with the 20% off the services going at once I'll drop a couple hundred - again... If only you had the Key Ring sets with the tech upgrades....
    If you are looking for an excellent PvE fleet consider: Omega Combat Division today.

    Must have probably be a miscommunication error between PWE and Cryptic and it should have been a Bonus ZEN Weekend instead of a ZEN Discount weekend

    There was a miscommunication, and it's a Zen Charge Bonus on PC instead. Apologies for the confusion, blog has been updated.

    Not seeing that 33% extra Zen at the $200 level either, only 25%, IF THEY MEANT THIS TO BE A BONUS ZEN AND NOT ZEN DISCOUNT SALE.

    Well now it is back to the normal Zen Charge Bonus and they dropped the 33% Bonus, 25% max. :(

    A ship sale would be nice right about now.
  • johnnyray14#4257 johnnyray14 Member Posts: 188 Arc User
    Thank you for the corrections. I still don't understand why you don't advertise the other tiered bonus that's always active at arcgames.com though, like the 15% bonus for the $200 purchase. So for $200 so we actually get 28K Zen this weekend. Last time I checked, this extra 15% discount wasn't on Steam, so make sure to review the payment details before submitting.

    the zen discount is still not showing on the xbox one
  • ambassadorkael#6946 ambassadorkael Member, Administrator Posts: 2,431 Community Manager
    The Zen Sale on Xbox One is currently not live, but will be going live soon. We'll keep you posted.

    So if I understand things correctly, it is a charge bonus of 15% on top of the 25% discount at the $200 level? So 28k like the first big summer sale - yes?

    It is a Charge Bonus only from 15% to 25% extra Zen as they have done before. There is NO discount.

    Fix my account first Cryptic, Ticket Reference # 170727-001178 since it's been over a month, then I'll once again buy Zen when there's a sale.
  • altran3301altran3301 Member Posts: 164 Arc User
    No charge bonus here, using the arc website. Still only 15% (24000+3600) as normal. :-/

    I would love to see the ability up the limit of 8000 dly that only converts to 27zen per day, jeeze, its going to take me a year to reach 3000.
  • awesomeweaselawesomeweasel Member Posts: 260 Arc User
    any news on when xbox one will have the zen sale kick in as it still is not on?
  • karanaxkaranax Member Posts: 2 Arc User

    Create more alternate characters. KDF characters can get Dil more easily than Fed characters, plus they also have a lot more missions that rewards contraband than Feds.

    Increasing the refinement cap will only cause the exchange rate to increase as well. For example, increasing the cap to 9k Dil per day may cause the exchange rate to increase to 350:1 or higher. At a 350:1 exchange rate, 9k Dil will convert into 26 Zen per day which is worse than 27 Zen per day.
  • ltminnsltminns Member Posts: 12,462 Arc User
    It is 9k a day if you are a Lifetime Subscribers (1,000 every two days) in a Fleet (500 at the Mine per day).

    still not seeing any sign of the sale/discount at 830 PST
  • Saw this in the afternoon and went for the $200 for 28,000 Zen. I've seen the latest pessimistic YouTube video proclaiming how lame the end game has become, but I'm still having fun.
  • zipp0nlinezipp0nline Member Posts: 1 Arc User
    For those of us that purchased zen on xbox one during this "zen discount event" and it didn't apply will we be reimbursed in some way?

    Good on you, keep that up.

    Even if it doesn't make any difference to them, at least you're in control.

    I would LOVE to take advantage of the current bonus but if they can't deal with my Mark of Sompek issue before the event runs out (which they clearly did not), then why the hell would I financially reward such poor 'support' efforts?

    So, that's it. End of the line. If I can't game reliably, I'm not going to pretend I can.

    People will rag on you, but stay strong man - don't let these idiots bring you down.

    hello again.
    I bought some zen during the stated advertised window of a sale.
    yet did not receive a discount on the zen I purchased.

    I was wondering if I could be compensated,for not getting the advertised savings?

    as well id like to know when the sale actually starts?perhaps someone in charge of that might...do their job correctly...

  • zepprimezepprime Member Posts: 5 Arc User
    This is not the first time the advertising has been false and they never gave me the zen they owed me. Good luck.

    Has there been an update to xbox sale going live?
  • aspartan1aspartan1 Member Posts: 1,053 Arc User
    I got the bonus zen and the services discount (got lots of slots for toons, ships, BO and items) but I got hosed on the 50% sale for the Secret Agent pack - WTF? I'm pushing a thousand dollars so far this year and the local money cost to convert to that is nearly eight times that amount to me in real economic impact... I need some love Cryptic....
