Last post on this, as I'm not playing the troll game. You corrected me in my post and proceeded to troll. My post, the very first to point out that the bonus was not correctly applied, was correct and succinct.

3. First off, we're looking into the incorrect bonus reports, and thank you for your reports on it.

100% of crafting xp means 1.00. 4 * 1.00 = 4.

Jerry's wording did not state "and additional" bonus. Which would have meant XP * (1.00 + x%)

With 250% return we should be seeing...
1 xp should = 2 xp
2 xp should = 5 xp
3 xp should = 7 xp
4 xp should = 10 xp
5 xp should = 12 xp.

Remember, DnD base rules, you round down.
This is what should be taking place. Technically, the amount of XP returned on deconstruction should be 250%, with 100% being "if you are supposed to get 2 xp, you get 2 xp". So, the benefit through Sunday should be a 250% return on deconstruction, or a +150% bonus.

If what he meant was 250% of normal XP, then he should have said that, or 150% bonus.
You are correct, the wording should be better, and will be updated to reflect a more accurate statement.

You asked where 50% was, I told you it wasn't in the game currently as provided by your own evidence. Is that so hard to understand?

5. German-language launcher news say this :

May 17, 2012 14:07 EST Holen Sie sich noch bis zum 15. Mai 250% Cannith-Handwerks-Dekonstruktions-EP!
Notice the mistake ?

6. .....sooooo, is the deconstruction bonus being appied accurately at this time? I saw the +250% on the sign-on screen earlier and its gone now.

7. So who still believes in correct calculations regarding the success-chances, failure-streak-drama? If you needed any more hints, THIS should confirm everything.

8. Due to a technical issue preventing us from offering our originally-planned +150% Bonus, we're going to have to stick to our current +100% Crafting Item Deconstruction Bonus. Sorry for the confusion!

That makes me sad. But also points out you've got issues on your end. BUG IT!

10. BAH!

I saw the 250% bonus on the login screen and started a path to ransacking Raiding the Giant's vault... then started deconning it only to find out it is only giving 100%.

So, it's broken, BUT

Seems a little silly to start changing the phraseology of XP bonuses when all other XP bonuses have been phrased a particular way since the beginning of the game.

Bad form in saying it is a 250% bonus on the login screen when you really mean it gives a 150% bonus. yes, I know technically the phrasing is right, but when we have never had it phrased that way before, most people are going to assume a 250% bonus.

Oh, well saves me time grinding out vendor trash. Not going to do it for only 100% bonus.

At the very least, up it to 200% for the second half of the time period. That way we'll get the promised 150%, on average.
Or make the offer last 50% longer; that would work, too.

12. ah drat... i was all gung ho to up my crafting levels today. oh well. the discounts on store stuff is nice

I can only ever imagine the complex nature of, what should be, such an easy change.

Glad it's only deconstruction, which is so little XP I doubt anyone notices.

14. I believe : +100 % is better than nothing at all !

As has been stated by others, we are only having a 200% return at the moment.
Point understood but I speak and read English, not Turbine

As has been said I take the word bonus to mean extra, not what you normally have + something as well.

I completely understand what others are saying, to mean what was intended it should have said 150% bonus or 250% of normal.

However I also understand you've made a point and you rarely back down when you do.

Let's all agree to disagree, after all we're stuck with the 100% regardless.

After long experience I've learned never to think ANYTHING within mmo programming is in any way simple.

*chuckles* When they said 250% I went... "no way they would shove it up that much." That would be like offering double XP days, and instantly applied Turbine grammar rules.

If I came across too strong, I do apologize.

18. umm wow yeah gee thanks. now how about something thats worth while.
