Read the whole thread. And no, I'm not joking. If I want exactly 1,100 NuPlex, I only pay 99.99. In the old system, I would have to buy 6 Plex and pay $105.00. I would be forced to spend an extra $5.00 in the old system.
The only things that matter is ppu.
Basically, this guy isn't really whining that PLEX is more expensive. What he's whining about is that CCP replaced some of their odd-numbered deals (e.g. $105, $210, $490) with more normal numbers (e.g. $100, $250, $500).
1100 NuPlex is $99?
That would mean 2.2 old PLEX is $99?
I think not.
$99 gets you 2860 NuPlex. This is short of the equivalent 3000 for 6 PLEX you would have purchased before.
To buy 3000 NuPlex +
1. x $99 @ 2860
1 x $4.99 @ 110
Is still short of 6 PLEX in the old system, so you have to purchase an additional $4.99 pack to get the equivalent of the previous 6 PLEX, giving you 80 NuPlex left over.
That's a total cost now, to get the equivalent of the former 6 PLEX, of 99 + 4.99 + 4.99 = $108.98
That is more expensive than it was before, though you are also provided a slightly more amount of 80 NuPlex than buying 6 PLEX under the old system (ie. $108.98 gives you 6.16 old PLEX).
