    Trion What You Can't Multiply, Armistice Bargain Box Price is Wrong

    Really now what is this. I have patron so I get 10% off and the Bargain boxes are 49 bits to me per box and it says at the store buy 100 and get 10 free, but it costs me 4950 bits for the 110 amount. Now the school I went to taught me how to Multiply as in 100 x 49 = 4900 but at 4950 bits that means I am buying 101 boxes and paying a 1 bit tax and only getting 9 extra boxes free. As I said 100 times 49 equals 4900 not 4950.

    So lets see here you owe me a few boxes since I have bought that 100 + 10 free pack at least 4 or 5 times.

    I understand your frustration and concern in this matter, these kind of issues can be more than upsetting causing all kinds of problems for everyone involved. But rest assured we the players your loyal supporters will continue to spend our hard earned cash and keep your game Defiance afloat and out of the red.

    Capice or would you like frys with that

    So you're okay with spending 200-250$ in boxes but complain when trion charges you an extra 2$?

    Apparently the school that taught him to multiply failed to teach him decimal points and rounding.

    Just kidding, but you do have to see the humor in it ^.^

    Apparently the price per box with patron pass is 49 bits and 100 times 49 is 4900, there is no rounding in that equalization.

    I do see your take on it and it is funny in a way, but trion is making out on it and all tho its a small amount it does add up in the long run considering the amount of players that are buying those boxes.

    I think when you spend £50+ you should get the discount patron or no patron.....

    I'll try another way for him.

    The original cost of the bargain boxes is 55 bits. Thus, 100 boxes would be 5500 bits. 10% of 5500 is 550. 5500 - 550 = 4950. Hope this provides more clarity.

    without pp it should be 5,550 bits - 10 % discount equals 4950 ... where is the issue?

    am i missing something?





    Buying them at 49bits each is 11% discount.

    Oh so someone did notice the math is a tad wrong but still they are looking at it from the wrong angle, so back to my original issue. I have pp and can buy a single box for 49 bits and trion says at the store in writing mind you. Buy 100 Get 10 Free. So with that in mind buying 100 single boxes would be 4900 at the singles price not 4950.

    Now does that mean my PP discount only apply's when trion allows it to ?
