Nickle and dimed at the gate.

Post by Norrie on Tue Jul 02, 2013 12:01 am

Not sure if this is a bug or just some fuzzy math happening but here goes:

At the gate - hire a follower:
Brute Mercenary25 Bronze / day
For 2 days it should be 50 bronze, right?  Nope -
 
events wrote:02nd of Jul 2013 02:39 :You have hired Brute Mercenary for a total of 2 days and paid 53 Bronze.  <-----

Then there is the 20% (Shocked ) tax on followers at the gate.  The dialog tells me that the tax is 10 bronze.

But when I go to pay the tax:
events wrote: 02nd of Jul 2013 02:56 :You have paid your Market Tax of 11 Bronze to Camaar.

 (I had a clear tax bill, had already paid what I owed at the market.)

So for no reason, I end up paying an extra 4 bronze at the gate?

 Thanks for reporting Norrie, I will look into this matter and find out the reason for this.

As for the price of all the followers at gate, it seems to follow a pattern...
Cost for n days = n * price + (n-1)*price/10  (rounded up)

So,
Cost for 2 days = 2 * 25 + (2-1)*25/10 = 52.5  = rounded to 53


Tax is then applied to the Cost

20% of 53 = 10.6 B

One of the values might have been rounded down (10B) & the other rounded up (11B)

Atleast that is my theory XD
Maybe I am totally wrong... This is what I could find at this hour(1 am) XD


Edit :
There may be also a situation where the tax of a person is stored with decimal values so any previous reminders are also considered...

Eg: 10.6 + 0.4 (Old remains) = 11B

As I stated earlier, this is also a theory... No idea what the actual system is XD

The formula is indeed correct like Jp said.

The price for hiring a follower is not just cumulative but get more expensive the more days you hire.
Also the tax seems to be right, however there seems to be an issue with rounding the numbers correctly. Which I try to fix this weekend.

It seems that you didn't paid more then you should have after all.
