For the Record: How discounts are calculated on EU server
Hello everyone, in this post, I will be referring to the earlier post today about the E-25 discount. If you haven’t, please go read it first, so you know what I am talking about. Can we continue then? Good. So, I was wondering about the 24 percent and I asked in the Czechoslovak section – and Dargnon (Czech community organizer) replied, explaining (or, rather defending) the principle (if you understand Czech, you can read it in original there). It works like this: WG EU takes the EUR to gold ratio from the price of the 2500g package, which seems pretty arbitrary to me. The logic is as follows: The E-25 is 30 percent off. That’s 6700 – 30 percent = 4690 gold The slot is 50 percent off (Christmas event), that’s 150 gold Together it’s 4840 gold On EU server (for EU residents), you get 2500 gold for 9,95 EUR, which gives you 251,2 gold for 1 EUR. 4840/251,2 = cca 19,2 EUR, which is 76 percent of the original E-25 price in EUR (25,4). Hence the 24 percent discount. Am I the only one who thinks that the decision to use the gold-per-euro ration from the 2500g packet is just odd?
