Oh herrow. I guess I can post this info on this server too.
Some people were wondering how much an RM was worth, seeing as the prices for RM's have slowly been increasing it only makes sense that people are concerned about getting the value out of their points. Here is the math for the value of an RM, if you care to verify my work. If you do not care, then there is a tl;dr section at the end with the results.
Thank you and +1 if you found this helpful.
Minutes in a 30 day RM
----------------------
30 * 24 * 60 = 43,200
Turns in 30 days
----------------
43,200 / 5 = 8,640 turns
Non RM Energy Earned
--------------------
8640 * 15% = ~1296 bars
RM Energy Earned
----------------
8640 * 25% = ~2160 bars
Difference
-----------
2160 - 1296 = ~+864 bars
(Averaging 1 million deposited per day)
Bank Deposit No RM per 30 days
-------------------------------
( 1,000,000 * 0.08 ) * 30 = 2,400,000
Bank Deposit RM Per 30 days
---------------------------
( 1,000,000 * 0.04 ) * 30 = 1,200,000
So, aside from the fact that you get 150 extra inventory, the color name schtuffs, and the RM Cities, the results are conclusive.
For a Non-RM player to have the chance at as many bars of energy as an RM player, they would have to spend 8640 points.
If we add the bonus points you earn, and convert the bank deposit you save into a point value of average 35k a point, your RM pack is worth someone who is online 24/7 a whopping 8,724 points. Your results may vary due to sleep time.
To figure out whether or not an RM pack is worth it for how often you log in, you can use this formula.
[ (Average Hours Played Per Day) * 60 * 30 ] * 0.2 / 10 = Bonus bars from RM pack (We will refer to this result as K in the next formula)
To figure out the extra stats per month earned from training this extra energy you use this formula:
K * [ (Level + 9) * (rand(0.009 - 0.013) * (Awake * Awake%)) ]
If you turn that into a spread sheet or some shit to get a random variance number you could figure out how much its worth approximately in stats.
