"I've been presiding over consumer fraud cases for over 90 years and never have I seen such a blatant disregard for the sanctity of electronic game currency purchases as foul as this monstrosity called a Zen purchasing scheme.

How dare they charge you the exact same amount of game currency you bought in the past and now forcing you to buy a different current first that has the exact real world monetary value first and then have to convert it to the old currency that still has the exact same value it did before.

Time to throw the book at these heretics. PWE, you are fined every last cent you have and your first born child. The fined amounts will be used to create a super version of the old Cryptic forums. But now with triple the amounts of freedom and democracy! And electrolytes!"

Math, how does it work.

We have nothing. Nothing but our anger. We will take that spark and start a fire which will become a great conflagration!

# 24 Advantages of Zen
07-05-2012, 02:05 PM
1) It keeps a purchase history
2) You get 100 Zen for $1.00 USD. Pretty easy to see the real cost of an item (thus, that 2000 CP Armitage or Atrox Carrier is actually $25) -- also, the Cryptic Store is being converted over to zen in Season 6 so all prices (and stipends) will be in that currency.
3) You get bonus zen when buying large amounts (Cryptic Points didn't have bulk discounts)
4) For those that want to play STO without ever giving Perfect World one cent, there are many offers that allow you to get free zen.

I'd say I'm surprised people still don't understand this, but I would be lying.

Since you've been proven wrong, be a man (or a woman, I don't want to discriminate) and change the title to something a bit less offensive.
Don't fall for the fake advertising: Guild Wars 2 is a WoW clone and a poor one too.

I just bought C-points. had to spend 30 dollars in order to get the 2000 i needed for my ship. Granted now I have a few extra points to spend in game but that is not the point. Why should I have to do 2 transactions on my credit card?

because thats what is available. cryptic had similar stepped purchases. Personally i wait until I am going to buy 5000 zen to get the 300 zen bonus. Meantime I can be building up dil to convert also.

Perfect World sells zen in $5, $10, $20, $30, and $50 increments.

Previously, Cryptic only sold C-Points in $6.25, $12.50, $18.75, $25, and $62.50 increments.

The ship costs $25...

I find it funny that no one has mention the daily 8k dilithium conversion being increased. I would have assumed that it was 8k because 80cp = 1.. Shouldn't the conversion be increased to 10k? Just idle speculation....
