Anyone else find it a little odd regarding the math on buying funds?

Take as an example (and i realise that not many people buy in game money as gold is worth more, but the same bizarre maths applies to both.)

currently I can buy:

$377,000 for 2.99
~$1260.8 for every penny spent

or

$829,000 for 6.99
~$1185.9 for every penny spent

6.99 purchase also has '10% extra' written next to it although has something like ~6% less value.
I mean my maths is not great but...really?

For me:

It's $5 for 50 gold, and $10 for 110 gold...therefore you get 10% free.

Same with $5 for 932,000 for me, and $10 for $2,052,000...that's more than 10% extra (should be $2,050,400)


I think you're doing the math wrong, you can't look at it in terms of pennies spent. It's the extra amount on top of what should be given to you based on the lowest costly money/gold. In our case, it's based off the $5 for 50 gold.

bearing in mind this is iOS version being played in England
and dont get me started on the cost of gold 50g = 2.99 and 110g = 6.99 (with '10% extra' wtf!)

I think i need to know how my math is wrong

if $377,000 cost 2.99 thats ~$125,666 for every 1.00 spent

so 6.99 should be ~7 x $125,666 (=$879,662) + 10% extra ($879,662 / 10 = ~$87,966) should total ~$967,628

so thats a short fall of ~$138,628 no?

It's 10% only when counting in dollars. $10 is about 6.2 so it's not as far off as you think.

Indeed this isn't right. If 2.99 gives $377,000 then 6.99 should give $881,348. With the extra 10% this should be $969,483.
It seems there has been made a mistake going from 2.99 to 6.99. They have multiplied the money 2 times instead of 6.99/2.99=2.34 times.

Agreed,
So my option to purchase a vault of cash is $11,310,000 for 69.99 including '50% extra'
but..
if its ~$125,666 for every pound spent then ~70 x $125,666 should total ~$8,796,620 plus 50% (add $4,398,310) should total out at ~$13,194,930. umm thats ~$1,884,930 less than expected! Thats a whole 13.99 stockpile of cash purchase missing!

Really thats not 50% extra at all, more like slightly under 30% O_O

Which is only 20% misleading.

Yes, that makes sense. So the 10% extra would be true if the sale was for 5.99 instead of 6.99
So for every 6.99 stash of cash purchased in England, Were basically tipping them a 1 for their poor math.
Well done guys.
