seems if you played yesterday you lose SP from your "triple SP week"

vanilla cap *2 = 380k ish + sp from yesterday = 570ish

i logged in to 350k bonus sp for the week remaining after playing some games yesterday


we had blue post confirmation that this would not happen

what will you do CCP


(note that i diddnt cap out yesterday but i earned about 40-50k SP meaning i had about 150 reamaining, 150*3 = 350k aka my new bonus SP remaining, i just lost out on 200k by stupidly trusting blue posts saying this would not happen)

link to blue post https://forums.dust514.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=999548#post999548

more links stating that playing weds wouldnt effect the event SP

I think you are assuming that we only triple what is left in your weekly SP cap for the event, which is not the case. The amount of SP you earn on Wednesday will not affect the amount of extra SP cap available to you from the event.


guess what.... it only tripled the amount remaining....

They will say they are working on it and then hope we forget about it

I'll start my own war, with hookers, and blackjack!

In fact forget the war and the blackjack.

Damnit, I had a feeling this would happen, I was pretty surprised when I saw wolfmans post describing how it would work.

Hi all,

So here are the answers to questionis regarding the triple SP event.

1. The weekly SP cap will reset on Wednesday, July 3rd as usual after DT. If you hit your weekly in the first day then you will still be eligible for the extended SP cap for the event on Thursday. For example, if the weekly SP cap was 1000 and you hit the cap on Wednesday before the event starts, then on Thursday we will extend the weekly SP cap to 3000 so you will have an extra 2000 added to your weekly SP cap for the event. Of course, the number I used in the example is just an arbitray number and not the actual SP cap amounts in order to illustrate the point. Smile

yes, me too. Before DT I had 31k SP cap left. I thought I would get 2x190.400 + 31.000 Total is 411.800 SP and that's what I expected as today after DT bonus SP remaining.
Actually I had 3x 31.000 Total is 103.000 SP Shocked..................................... nevermid, hopefully they will put a patch.

Should be interesting to see as well then as I played for around 50k yesterday myself. Nice way of tricking us if so (tbh I don't get it why they just wouldn't start a new round of 3x at a reset instead)

2. The passive SP gain and caps are not part of the triple SP event, so they will work normally.

3. Your extra SP earned from skill boosters do not count towards your weekly SP cap. For more info on that go to https://forums.dust514.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=74943&find=unread

In other words, you won't miss out on earning any extra skill points from the Triple SP event if you hit your weekly cap this Wednesday.

The amount of SP you earn on Wednesday will not affect the amount of extra SP cap available to you from the event.

So... yet again, CCP rewarding people for not playing the game. Roll

You have an interesting business plan CCP, are you trying to make the first game in history, that you are better at it when you not playing ?
