Bonus money time: 50% or 60%? (in General)


AvoidCXT December 16 2006 3:26 AM EST

Many of you have probably seen me say that during wacky times, one reward gets multiplied by 1.6 and the other by 0.4. That is contracted by the nifty new bonuses chart on fight rewards(a very nice addition, by the way), which says to me "Bonus money time: 50% more money." So I crunch some numbers.
During normal time:
cash / xp = 1.655
Multiply cash by 1.5 and xp by 0.5 and you get:
cash / xp = 4.965
Alternatively, multiply cash by 1.6 and xp by 0.4 and you get:
cash / xp = 6.62
Next I fight Constant a few times and in a couple of the battles I get cash rewards of $300 and $539, which makes average cash rewards $390. In a couple other battles, I get xp rewards of 40 and 77, which makes average xp rewards somewhere around 58.9.
390 / 58.9 = 6.621

So basically, you have just proven that the bonus rewards are 60%, instead of the displayed 50%. Nice ;)

...or his average battle rewards calculations are wrong.

Unless jon made a mistake, I would probably trust the 50% thing that is shown.

Avoid is right. Thanks for catching that. :)

so does that mean rewards are going to get lowered or the display is going to get upped?

You can find that out in about half an hour ;)

Well, its 60% bonus during wacky times.

Is it also 60% penalty to the other?
