Here's why we don't charge added affirmed chargeless vBucks, but this time it's a complete continued writeup application abstracts instead of a about absurd rant.


There's a TL;DR at the bottom, but I in fact achievement humans apprehend all the way through this, this took me abundant best than I anytime anticipation any column I would anytime achieve would take.


For all those humans accusatory about the vBucks nerf and adage that we charge added vBucks than what we're currently accepting adapted now, here's why you're wrong, Fortnite Items and this time, I'm application mostly statistics and data, instead of just announcement an breathless rant.


We already get in fact a lot of chargeless vBucks affirmed to us, even afterwards vBucks alerts.


Let's see how abundant we get per week, on average.


1, Circadian Quests


Of the 36 circadian quests:

33 of them accolade 50 vBucks

1 awards 60 vBucks

1 awards 75 vBucks

1 awards 100 vBucks


So the boilerplate bulk of a circadian adventure would be:


52.36 vBucks

because

33*50 = 1650

and then

1650 + 60 + 75 + 100 = 1885

and then

1885/36 = 52.36 (rounded to the abutting hundredth)


And if you in fact ambition to aerate your vBucks, you can alter any Circadian Adventure you get if at awards 50 vBucks to try afresh for one of the beyond rewards. So, we can recalculate that figure, and if you alter any circadian adventure than abandoned awards 50 vBucks, that will beggarly the boilerplate bulk of any Circadian Adventure that rewards 50 vBucks afore accepting replaced would be 52.36, because that's the boilerplate bulk of a about called Circadian Quest. So, if you automatically alter any Circadian Adventure that gives 50 vBucks, you'd get an boilerplate of 54.52 vBucks anniversary day from Circadian Quests, because


52.36*33 = 1727.88

and

1727.88 + 60 + 75 + 100 = 1962.88

and

1962.88/36 = 54.52 (rounded to the abutting hundredth)


So, on boilerplate you get 366.52 (52.367) chargeless vBucks per anniversary from Circadian Quests if you don't automatically alter any adventure that awards 50 vBucks, and if you do automatically alter quests that accolade 50 vBucks, afresh you'll get an boilerplate of 381.64 (54.527) chargeless vBucks anniversary anniversary from your Circadian Quests.


But, that's not all. There's aswell login rewards, which accept several vBucks rewards broadcast throughout them.


Each circadian login accolade aeon lasts 336 days, or 48 weeks. The day 337 accolade is the aforementioned as the day 1 reward, and the day 338 is the aforementioned as the day 2, and so on.


Each login aeon has:


1 accolade of 50 vBucks

31 rewards of 150 vBucks

9 rewards of 300 vBucks

2 rewards of 800 vBucks

1 accolade of 1000 vBucks


and


50 + (31150) + (9300) + (2*800) + 1000 = 10000


Which agency you get 10000 vBucks in 48 weeks, and then


10000/48 = 208.33 (rounded to the abutting hundredth)


So you get, on average, 208.33 chargeless vBucks per anniversary just for logging in.


So, 381.64 (from circadian quests) + 208.33 (from login rewards) = an boilerplate of 589.97 chargeless vBucks anniversary week, guaranteed.


Now, I'm traveling to actualization you what that bulk would attending like with 1-3 vBucks alerts affirmed in anniversary rotation.


Let's alpha with the acceptance that these affirmed vBucks alerts accept an according adventitious of breeding in anniversary zone. (This is in fact traveling to aftereffect in lowballing the boilerplate bulk of a vBucks active as there are beneath zones in Stonewood and Plankerton breadth a vBucks mission could spawn adjoin in Canny Valley and Twine Peaks.)


So, beneath that assumption, the boilerplate bulk of a vBucks mission would be 130 (25+30+35+40) disconnected by 4 (the bulk of altered bulk a vBucks mission can have), which is 32.5 vBucks.


So, if we accept 1 vBucks active affirmed per day, with an boilerplate bulk of 32.5 vBucks, you would get an added 227.5 chargeless vBucks affirmed per anniversary (on average), for a complete of 817.47 affirmed chargeless vBucks per anniversary (on average).


With 2 affirmed vBucks alerts per day, you would get an added 455 chargeless vBucks affirmed per anniversary (on average), for a complete of 1044.97 affirmed chargeless vBucks per anniversary (on average).


And with 3 affirmed vBucks alerts per day, you would get an added 682.5 chargeless vBucks affirmed per anniversary (on average), for a complete of 1272.47 affirmed chargeless vBucks per anniversary (on average).


The allegation are, abstinent in affirmed chargeless vBucks per week:


589.97 with no vBucks alerts

817.47 with 1 vBucks active per day

1044.97 with 2 vBucks alerts per day

1272.47 with 3 vBucks alerts per day


Bear in apperception that this is affirmed chargeless exceptional bill that we are talking about.


And this is breadth we can in fact quantify what these numbers mean.


1000 vBucks costs $10 to purchase, acceptation anniversary vBuck is annual $0.01.


So now, the boilerplate bulk (rounded to the abutting cent) of those affirmed chargeless vBucks per anniversary would be:


$5.90 with no vBucks alerts

$8.17 with 1 vBucks active per day

$10.45 with 2 vBucks alerts per day

$12.72 with 3 vBucks alerts per day


And now, to in fact put this in perspective, let's see how these numbers attending with a beyond timeframe, let's say, 1 year.


The boilerplate bulk of the affirmed chargeless vBucks you would accept anniversary year would be:


$306.80 with no vBucks alerts

$424.84 with 1 vBucks active per day

$543.40 with 2 vBucks active per day

$661.44 (!) with 3 vBucks alerts per day


Now, this is abandoned for 1 person. Let's see what would arise if the accomplished playerbase took abounding advantage of all of these vBucks.


Now, I don't apperceive the complete bulk of humans who play StW, so let's use this subreddit's addict count, which is 331,962 (at the time this column was written)


Of course, not all of those humans still play StW, but:


1, Abounding of them may not be posting/commenting on this sub and may not play StW much, but as continued as they still play BR and Creative, they're allegedly traveling to yield abounding advantage of those chargeless vBucks for skins.


2, Not anybody uses reddit, abnormally kids who just use StW as their vCucks acreage for BR skins.


So that allegedly balances out that bulk to achieve it added or beneath accurate.


So with the acceptance that there are 331,962 StW players demography advantage of these chargeless affirmed vBucks, the boilerplate bulk of the vBucks that Ballsy would be giving abroad anniversary year would be:


$101,845,942 (!) with no vBucks alerts

$141,030,736 (!!) with 1 vBucks active per day

$180,388,151 (!!!) with 2 vBucks alerts per day

$219,572,945 (!!!!) with 3 vBucks alerts per day


The bulk of affirmed vBucks that Ballsy is currently giving abroad for chargeless is already outlandish, there's abiding as hell no charge to access it abnormally aback you can now see what's in your llamas afore you buy them, and they aswell put butt aegis on them, authoritative allegorical leads a lot easier to get, and acutely abbreviating the bulk of the SPL. (super humans llama) Apperception you, they accord abroad $52,000,000 anniversary year (if they accumulate on giving abroad $1,000,000 per anniversary in the Apple Cup) via the Fortnite Apple Cup, and all four of those numbers are beyond than that!


Side note: looks like my algebraic is hardly off, the boilerplate bulk of a 50 vBuck adventure that you alter is in fact 54.57, not 54.52, about this abandoned furthers my point so I'm not traveling to recalculate about aggregate in this column to just actualization that my case is hardly stronger that I originally anticipation it was


TL;DR Ballsy is already giving abroad a shitton of affirmed chargeless vBucks, we don't charge any more.


For anyone who apprehend that all the way through, acknowledge you for active to my ted talk.
