So let's put it this way:
In this forum post ALL figures are purely for example and do not reflect ANY real world figures or numbers.
Diamonds regularly are $50 for 3,000.
During a diamond promo 140% you get 7,200 for the same $50. (3000x2.4=7200), x2.4 because you get 140% MORE.
Diamonds are now $50 for 3,500.
Diamond promos only may go to 105% now. During that max 105% promo you still get (nearly) the same amount. (3500x2.05=7175)
Remember that these are just examples but kind of show how I believe its going to work. Like I said, I don't have the real figures in front of me but if this is not what happens, then I'll eat my words.
Note there will always be variations due to the fixed bonuses and region differences and payment type selection, etc etc.
I do not think we would have promotions for diamonds around 100% or more. RoM will now have Diamond HH values known from our other games.
You should start eating your words.
So let's change my example.
So in my example above the old non-sale value was 3000 and now the new non-sale value is 3900.
On a normal 140% we would get 7200 (3000x2.40=7200). On a new promo that's only 85% (more) we would get 7215 (3900x1.85=7215).
The math ends up being the same, It really depends on how the new diamond promos are set versus what was. After the AMA with Phelan and the expression on how expensive the game is from the community that Gameforge wouldn't reduce the amount of diamonds we get with our promos. And if they do then I would gladly join the rage train (we have yet to see a diamond promo so I can't quite eat my words and join you yet). Remember us GM's play the game and most of us buy diamonds, too.
Note if someone has the old values I will gladly work out the math for those that are too lazy and just jump on rage trains without knowing what's going on.
