Wrong. Lucas doesn't see a dime until they make their money back.

This is a case where you can't believe everything you read.

Even if the 5% stat is true, think about it - that means they've had atleast 50,000 bug reports. That doesn't mean only those people experienced bugs, most people who experience bugs either ignore them or leave the game. In effect the 5% is a meaningless stat.
