VIP math

#1

Anyone else noticed that with the VIP package that the supply drops are not doubled rewards?

By my math logic 2 times any whole number will result in an even numbered answer.

Many of the rewards are odd numbers.

It’s quartered from the distance. 125 for the normal coins x2 for VIP. Then 250/4 = 62.5, rounded up to 63.

Legend has it that with VIP, your game freezes 33%less than usual and Ludia will not listen to your feedback with 33% less

Bunners has the best explanation. Rounding is usually the culprit.

Another thing that can cause errors are the way number variables are defined in the program; integer, precision, double precision, etc. and the way the processor handles them. I’ve had errors where a whole number is stored as a precision number and then when it was multiplied by an integer a fraction was returned in the result. I.e. 100 x 2 = 200.0000034 = 200
or 128 x 2 = 255.99999967 = 255

This usually happens to me when a function’s variable is expecting a precision number and I pass it a variable defined as an integer. It works but the results may not be exactly what I was expecting.

No, I’m a math nerd. I don’t work for Ludia, though if I did I probably would hide the fact. Tell people I’m a ditch digger or something. :smirk:

What’s super vip?

Edit: BTW I’m actually asking. Is it a joke?

Sometimes you wonder…is it really math? lol. Supply drops are RNG itself gotta love it when you get nothing sometimes.
