Likelyhood of getting platinum discount and how to increase it?

  • My friends are eagerly waiting for the 50-75% platinum discount before sinking money into this game. As it stands they currently find it far to expensive (one warframe and some weapons = an entire game) and won't invest in it until they get the discount. And the kicker is they are saving up with playing the game until they get the warframes they actually want (they still play it half hearted, but want epix gaming). So I'm trying to figure out, what is the easiest way for them to get the discount.


    Is the likelyhood of it happening higher if they keep to the 0-2 day log in reward? Is it higher at 7+ days log in reward? Any help would be appreciated (I'm a founder so I don't have the issues they have obviously XD).

    • I would Imagine there is a greater chance at 3 star but I have nothing to backup that theory.  I have gotten a 20% 48 hour discount at both 1 and 3 stars

        Loading editor
    • I got the 20% too with 3 stars.


      I just can't help but wonder if the likelyhood is higher since there are fewer different kind of rewards for the lower starred ones. 3 star one has so many different stuff you can get.

    • eh ive gotten a bunch, it seems to be something like one coupon a week or so. mind i keep myself at three stars so im not sure about the others, i dont think it matters though. everytime the coupon was an option i got a coupon. so just keep an eye out for the orange things and login every day and youll get one or five eventually. other than that, i dont know any way to increase the chances for getting them.

    • I do not think there is any way to increase it. We just need to be lucky at the login roulette.

    • I think it decreses with 3 stars since you have a bigger amount of things to get like bps so going from like a 1/6 chance to 1/50 chance to get it

    • We do not know if the probability are adapted in the 3 different reward tiers.

      It could remain the same, or even increase with more login day. The number of possible reward change nothing to the % of probability. That is my hypothesis.

      Anyway, the only thing we could do is that everybody write down every day is tier and reward, then we gather this and start producing probability % on the rewards. (long job haha)

    • 0-2 in a row (1 star) guarantee to have discount plat at the roulette (when the card keep changing) while others mostly in 3 star don't have any platinum discount at all at the roulette.

      Test this with many account. Actually, I also hope for the same thing. I realized this when my alternate account and account of my friends got 75 % platinum when they are rarely logged in.

      My main account used to loggin everyday, and best I have got is 20 % discount.

      Now I use this method: Logged in 3 days in a row, but offline in the next day, repeat, this way we keep it at 1 star. Have got 50 %, but really hope for the 75 % before I burn my money.

      As it was said, when you are 3 star, there are so many things to randomized such as many different bluperints, key, etc while at 1 star there only 6 items.

      However, this method won't guarantee anything because we don't know the distribution of the chance between the items but I think it is better than nothing.

    • Guys, the login reward "roulette" is weighted. Better rewards are more likely in higher tiers - just because you see forma flash by with the same frequency as 20% off doesn't mean you have an even chance of getting both. Since the better rewards are in higher tiers, I would assume 20% off is more likely in 1 star than 3 stars, and 75% off is more likely in 3 stars than 1 star.

        Loading editor
    • I like to second the poster above me and also note that the images that flash in front of you have nothing to do with the rewards you can get.

      However, it's true that when you are in the 1st tier (star) you have less items that you can get so you have more chances to get each individual item in that list.

      With that said, if this is very important to you than it'll be a good idea to keep in the 1st tier until you get what you want.

      If on the other hand you want items from the 3rd tier than you might not want to stick to the 1st.

    • My friends want to spend money on the game, but thinks the current prices are ridiculous (I am inclined to agree) so at the moment what they want is a discount (50-75%) before making an investment. Making said investment will make the game more fun for them since it speeds things along and removes some of the grind feeling. There really isn't any reward in the roulette that is all that great in my eyes and I'd trade a discount for a forma any day and I'm sure my friends would do the same.


      We will become the 1 star gang =) I would also like to add that I made a dummy account to compare and the dummy account has gotten discounts 6 times so far versus 0 on my main account (who has 3 more days of logg inn then the dummy account to boot).

      How many 50% and 75% offs did you get?

    • With the dummy account that I keep at 1 star there has been no 75% yet (though it's been in the roulette lots of times), but gotten 50% 3 times and 20% 3 times (reset it yesterday again and going to log in later to check), compared to getting 20% 2 times with my main account at 3 stars. Going to reset my main account today though.

    • I tested this roulette and i can say this: if you are going for the discounts, stay with 1 star and after 3 days just wait 1 day for rewards to start over again. There is no 50-75% coupons in 2-3 stars rewards after the latest update, rarely only 20%.

      These comments do not constitute a suffient sample size, anything mentioned here is anecdotal at best.

    • Just got my 1st 75% discount today at 3 stars. I'd regularly get the 2day 50% discount at 3 stars at least once a week. Best just to just log in everyday so you at least get a chance of getting potatoes and formas.

        Loading editor
    • This is purely from my experience and logic, though you can get 75% at any level (of stars) however the % chance of getting it at one star is definitely higher and I would present a simple logic that I presumed from my exp. - If a person/player logs in everyday regularly then it means the the player I already well engaged in the game and sooner or later he will probably buy platinums (even @ full price) so its not much necessary for them to offer , however if you can a casual gamer who logs in once a week or so & if you get a 75% Discout then you are more than likely to jump aboard and play the game on more regular basis. Its a simple Business Common Sense Logic. Your' WELCOME

    • The way I see this going is that 7+ days is the best option for 75% off, while it increases the odds of other gains it almost gurantees a 75% off if you get a platinum discount.

    • I agree that all this is pure speculation. I understand some have "tested", but there are way too many variables that would require a vastly higher test pool to make a good assessment. I also agree that you do not have a higher chance to get something just because there are fewer options. That would only work if each was weighted the same and that is likely not the case. If you have 3 prizes with one being good and the others being crap, you don't necessarily have a 33% chance for the good item. 

      Tier 1 prizes are crappy and limited in variety. I'm not going to "not log in" and reset my tier 3 chances just because i "might" get my discount. The previous poster has confirmed that a 75% discount is available at tier 3 and that is where I will try to be, so if I'm not getting a discount that day, i will at least still have a chance for some other good stuff... not 500 xp on my sidearm that I could earn in 30 seconds of a mission, hahah. 

      I also truly doubt that DE would design the system in such a way that people might discover they have better chances of getting discounts when they don't log in regularly. There's a simple business common sense logic idea for ya. You're WELCOME :-D

    • I've been here about a week and a half. I have only received affinity and blueprints on the rewards but now I just received a 20% discount at 3 stars. I'm not buying at 20% discount but I didn't get a 75%. I saw all the login rewards (for the first time) in the roulette to also include all discounts as well. Was hoping for 75%, as such isn't the case, I think I'll reduce my play time a bit.

    • I'd think you'd be more likely to get Platinum discounts if you've never/infrequently bought any... The business model would work - say 20% of the playerbase is entirely puritan F2P. If you give discounts to them and only them, over the whole sample, the chance of getting a discount could be said to be 20%.


      Also, lol, Sentinel XP reward without having a Sentinel.

    • Also waiting for a 75% discout preferably, going the way of 1-2 star, as being for monthes on tier 3 rewards only offered me 20%.

    • i havent login for a few week and guess what > On my first login day of the week, i got 50% off O.o . They probably promote it to people who rarely play because it would keep them hang around later. More stars certainly doesnt mean better chance. Probably just a decorate to people.

    • Prime access packs aren't affected by discounts, like founders pack wasn't. i can tell because the day i bought my prime access pack I had 50% discount on platnum purchases and still had to pay full price for the pack. Oh and BTW stop spreading false information.

    • The more you play (as in everyday), the less % you have to receive a 50/75 % coupon. people that log in everyday are already hooked to the game econony and do not need incentive.

      Stop playing for a week, log in.

      then stop playing again for a week, log in.

      You will get a 50 or 75 % coupon.

    • Any source to back any of that up?

      If the chances were all the same, Tier 3 Login rewards wouldn't be worse than any other, as there's doubble the chance on any coupon drop.

      So the question remains: What are the actual percentages?

        Loading editor
    • There si no % because it is NOT % based.

      The variance of discount coupons changes accordingly to your behavior as a potentiel customer. log infrequently, or stop logging in for a while then come back and your propabilty of getting a coupon will rise. the whole system is there to turn free players into a source of revenue.

      This is not supposed to be fair, this is supposed to make DE money.

      In short, behave like a potential customer that need an incentive to "bite", or a player that is on the leave and occasionally come back, and you will get a coupon. behave like someone who plays everyday nto matter what, and need no incentive, you won't.

      basic f2p behaviour premium logic.

    • I don't think the logic that logging in less frequently means you get the discount more. I have logged in every day for the past couple months and gotten 50% twice in that time. One of my clanmates who actually plays more than I do just got the 75% this week and I'm pretty sure he has not missed a day in the last few months.

      Your logic makes sense from a business logic side, but anecdotally I have seen different. I think it may also have something to do with history of plat purchases. Such as if you only buy a little or don't buy at all with 20% then if you buy more with 50% and the net gain to DE is greater the you would get it more often. Based on how my clanmates and I have bought platinum and then been given more discounts, this seems possible. Also this goes along with the Steam Sale business model which the data shows works really well.

    • Okay I got a 75% Platinum discount 5 days ago. But before I got that I logged in for consecutive days. And I purchased a 1K Platinum Bundle before. My friends also obtained the 75% and 50% discount through logging in constantly. But it is true that staying at 1 Star will improve the likelihood of getting a discount but not 75%. So in my opinion, if you want a 75% discount, you need to play daily. 

      -P.S. Before I receive the discount, I noticed that there's a Forma Blueprint before it. That maybe an indication of obtaining a 75% Discount. (Hypothetical Assumption)

      All installed this game on Friday in the evening and started to play on Saturday noon. 2 got a first star 50% and one got the 75%. I got angry mentally because I played this game since our meeting near a month and every day and never got that. only 2 times a 20%... Bit frustating for me!
