Hey folks,

The math savvy among you are going to notice the current CXP boost in the game for the event is operating at 350% instead of 250% as we originally stated. Since the Mission buffs are coming in 5.1.2 we decided to make the boost even larger until then! Since this was a last minute change, the in-game tooltip will still state 250% but the bonus is in fact 350%. Note that XP and Requisition are still 250%.

Get in there and enjoy your crazy CXP bonus.

Scenario 1
Original 100%
Bonus 250%
Total current CXP 350%

Scenario 2
Original 100%
Bonus 350%
Total current CXP 450%

Which one is it? Math savviness isn't the problem, English savviness seems to be.

No, it is working exactly as you said it would. A boost of 100% would mean that something that gave you 1000cxp would now give 2000. A boost of 200% would mean that you would get 3000 and a boost of 250% would give you 3500. Please don't pretend this was an error and you are just being nice by leaving it in since in every place on the website it was worded as a boost of 250% to cxp, not a boost to 250%.
Dear BW,
Please nerf paper and buff rock. Scissors is fine as is.

I would have never noticed. Thanks for mentioning it. I guess, um... I have some business to attend now. See you in some days.
Bioware offers a friend referal system which gives referred players a couple of goodies (incl. 7 free days of sub and a neat free inventory slot for every character) and referring players some little shinies and cartel coins.
I would be happy if you choose my referral link to grab your free goodies.

Nope.
It was said 250% = 2.5x
So, e.g. u get normally 1000 CXP that would mean 2.5x 1000CXP = 2500 CXP.
So 350% boost means 3.5x. E.g. u get normally 1000 CXP that would mean 3.5x 1000CXP = 3500 CXP.
So it is not working as they said but I doubt anyone will complain


Correct me if i am wrong Eric.

So your math is wrong. When something is "increased" it's different from the way you are trying to understand it.

We'll start simple. A "100% increase" is essentially doubling your existing value. If you have 100 per, and you get a 100% increase, you will now have 200 per. So 150% is essentially your 2.5x as this is an "increased" value. (100% + additional 50% so increasing by 150 = 250 total.)

In this instance 250% is multiplicative of 3.5x. So as it was explained above, if you are getting 1000 normally and you have a 250% "increase" in experience, you will gain 3500 per.
