    Question Turbine Point Sale Error?

    In the LOTRO Market, the $199.99 TP offer is listed as "23,000Turbine Points" / "10,500 Base Points + 12,500 Bonus Points!"

    but the Double Bonus Points Offer lists "12,500 Base Points" / "21,000 Double Bonus Points" / "33,500 Total Points"

    Which is correct? If the first, the second should read 10,500 Base Points / 25,000 Double Bonus Points / 35,500 Total Points (and be a better deal)


    NOTE: This is an example of why Engineers should _never_ be allowed to play MMOs - we actually look at the numbers...

    If there was an error before it appears to be corrected now. For me it shows Base 12,500 / Double Bonus 21,000 (Normally 10,500) / Total 33,500 (Normally 23,000). Don't know what it was before, but looks fine now.

    Check the base $199.99 TP offer in the LOTRO Store

    It's 10,500 TP as _Base_ and 12,500 as Bonus - the 'double bonus offer' cites 12,500 TP as Base and 21,00 (10,500 x 2) as Bonus. The amounts are reversed between the two.

    EDIT: This is the only 'regular' LOTRO Store Point Offer where the Bonus was higher than the Base, so I expect that the LOTRO Store offer is 'wrong' and will be adjusted.

    Okay, I think I see where the confusion is. It lies in what is being sold in the LOTRO Store compared to the LOTRO Market. The LOTRO Store and LOTRO Market do not have the same point bundles available. The LOTRO Store (https://www.lotro.com/en/buy-turbine-points) is currently having the double bonus point sale (through Dec 2). It has a $199.99 point bundle which lists the points as:
    Base: 12,500
    Double Bonus: 21,000 (Regular bonus: 10,500)
    Total: 33,500 (Regular: 23,000)

    The LOTRO Market (https://store.lotro.com/en/turbine-points) also has a $199.99 point bundle, but has it listed as:
    Base: 10,500
    Bonus: 12,500
    Total: 23,000

    The double bonus points are only for the point bundles sold in the LOTRO Store. The LOTRO Market does not include the double bonus points (unless they made an announcement somewhere that I missed). While I think the LOTRO Market does have the Base/Bonus points transposed, it does not affect the total points you get (23,000) nor the price you pay for them ($199.99).

    That one was news to me - why is there a store and a market?
    The Balrog lives!! Oh, and give MECCG a try.

    The LOTRO Market (store.lotro.com) and the In-game LOTRO Store, are separate. The Double Bonus Point promo is accessible through the in-game store only.
