I’ve noticed that, after my club completes Perk 6, the time bonus for completing a level is 5% lower than it is before completing that Perk.
I can play a game with the exact same amount of time remaining in the game and get X points before perk 6, but only X*.95 AFTER Perk 6.
Why are we penalized after completing that Perk? There’s nothing in the details for the Perk that mentions it.
Yes, both costs to enter, buy more AND points gained for winning cards, streaks, totems, shards and other assorted bonuses is reduced by 5% after winning perk 6. It’s certainly not mentioned anywhere.
However since you also get golden tiki, your overall points will be increasing, and quite noticeably.
I’d like to know why, though. Seems a **** thing to do without telling us.
I mean, I’ve encountered so many glitches in the game, and have had to uninstall and reinstall so many times, that I’m not entirely confident that it’s not just an error.
The cost to enter is a known factor. They tell us that. The only bonus that’s easy to track is the time bonus, since it’s “X points per second,” and you can do the math easily enough. So, that one is the glaring hose job. For me, the idea that it’s easier to get more points with the Golden Tiki isn’t really a good reason to let them off the hook. I mean, we work hard to get that thing and, in addition to rewarding us, they throw some punishments at us, too, without warning us.
I have never noticed that we get less points once we have perk 6. I’ll have to watch it more closely. Hmmm.
I haven’t noticed that either. I’m going to pay more attention this week.
I notice it the most in Volcano Beach level 38. I happen to have noticed that the time bonus there when you win is 25 points per second. So, when I won once with 10 seconds left, but only got 238 points, I started paying attention.
Sure enough… 5% less on EVERY WIN, once Perk 6 is completed.
Its been like that since I’ve first experienced the joy of perk 6 I’d imagine. Now mind you I didn’t actually notice it until I got to Tiki Skies a few months later and notice my totem was only getting 950 coins instead of 1000 on some days and then I realized it. I’ve posted about it in maybe two other 2 other posts of mine.
@Big_Papa, I’ve been talking screen shots of my hands, and will compare with levels played after we get perk 6.
I’m sure you meant you won 25 coins per second, as the points are calculated on how many coins you win in the hand. I also have screen shots of how many seconds I had left at the end of each hand. I played 65 hands tonight. I didn’t remember screen shot everything, but I got a LOT of screenshots LOL
@Ff2017, I also have screenshots of getting 1000 bonus totem points, we’ll see how they are after 6 is done.
I don’t always get 1000 coins for the totem, regardless when it is. I get 1000 coins, 950 coins or a Wild Card. No other options. I haven’t yet seen a pattern emerge on what I get, where I get it, or the circumstances under which I get it.
Yeah. It’s 25 coins per remaining second… I’m only really looking at Level 38 for that one, though, as that’s the only one I’ve made sure of the payout per second on. When I mentioned it to my team, though, other members noticed that it’s consistent on levels they’re more familiar with, as well.
I just look at the number of seconds left at the end of the hand and multiple by 25. That’s what I get at the end of the hand for my time bonus. After Perk 6, it’s 5% lower.
Want me to add in something weirder? It used to ALWAYS round in my favor. If there was a decimal, the % I was penalized always rounded down. So, if the penalty ended in .25, .5, or .75 it always rounded in my favor. This week I noticed that the ,25 and .5 rounded in my favor but, if the penalty ended in .75, it rounded against me.
(I’m calling it a penalty for ease of discussion… and because it FEELS like a penalty LOL).
Re totem: if you don’t have perk 6 you get 1000 assuming you win the level. If you have perk 6 you get 950 assuming you win the level
THis doesn’t apply to monkey falls 1 of course.
I got 1000 coins and Wild Cards multiple times on Thursday eve before the restart. My group is Diamond. We finished all 7 Perks.
