Default Bonus System is a Joke!

So after purchasing almost every module I have 4 bucks in bonus points.....

When I purchased the Harrier I got 16 bucks now I have 4 dollars and haven't used any points on anything. I have never used points to purchase anything because these so called points are never available.

Just more BS from DCS!

Yes, the bonus point system is indeed pretty bad, especially for true fans that always buy modules as soon as they are available in pre-sale. I have collected 65$ of bonus points over time and I've almost never been given the opportunity to spend them. To do so I would have to wait until modules are out of pre-sale which would keep me from playing them during Early Access

While I agree with you about on the subject, I don't agree on the wording. We have certain standards here:

If you purchased during a sale then you won't receive bonus points, but you will save more money overall.

Why does it say "Bonus 16$" on the pre-sale Hornet then, which is the exact amount of bonus points I recieved for buying it?

maybe your bonus points have been sat so long they have expired?

The other side of the coin. I have used bonus points on modules that I may not have bothered with otherwise. I guess in total it must equate to about 60$
I don't understand how it works completely but its better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick

Hopes it gets better with tmie.


edit: well... im eating my words... 70% bonus event lmao.

edti2: oh well... only for those modules that are pricey this days :o

Just a quick question on the bonus points scheme: I have $26 in bonus points, and wanted to use them in the 70% sale currently on to go towards the A-10C, currently $39.99. 70% of 39.99 is just short of $28, but the store will only let me use $12 of my points. Any ideas?

From the rules:

"A product can be paid by use of bonuses no more than 30% (thirty percent) of the full product price. We retain the right to change this percentage at any time and at our discretion."

All the rules here:

The bonus system works perfect! Please don't screw with it.

So the DCS World 70% Off Bonus Event is a lie or joke?
