How exactly do these 'points per minute' accrue?

 

I had enough points to buy one of the levels early today.  Yet after that (I haven't completed any of the stuff to get extra tokens), but it hasn't boosted. I've been sitting at the same 'number' the entire time, so the 'points per minute' seems to be doing jack squat... anyone else notice that, or any explination on how these points work?

Actual event doesn't start until timer reaches zero. If you earn with tokens or buy with doubloons you get the instant boost now, and any goodies you earn. The points start accruing when the event starts, roughly 3 days if I recall correctly?

The building does not start until Monday. We are still in the early prep phase.

 

At least that is what I understand it to be.

This is correct.

The building and accrual of points will begin on Monday. At this point, you will start receiving 125 points per minute + additions for boosters.

Fem,

He's asking if it is logged in time or just per minute of actual battle time.

Minutes of the day.  The time scale that humans use on planet Earth.  You gain points for every single minute of the day.  Approximately 1440 minutes per day.

Per a minute of standard time.

Online, offline, on the toilet, on a plane, just a minute of time :)

Ok so 125 pts per minute x 1440 minutes times 30 days = 5,400,000 points .  This is only the total if you get a full 30 days from start time.

I'm still wondering why there is a later start time for this whole event considering the patch dropped over 24 hours ago and you start accumulating stuff from the get go.

Am i missing something is there a special reason for a 4 day wait,as it is the general game population will not reach the finish line doing it the old fashion way anyway but those 4 days could have helped.

Most likely to give people a jump on the getting shipbuilding coinage.  when it starts, you will be (timewise) halfway to the start of the second directive.  (just spitballing a possible thought)

Minutes of a day. The dockyard building will go on weather you are logged in or not. You are trying to reach 51,300,000 construction points before the event ends.

yes and u get additional points per minute for each of the boosters you buy with the tokens.  At least thats how I understand it looking at those boosters for tokens.

Fem, 

so points are not yet accruing for the 6k doubloon booster I purchased?
i feel somewhat ripped off and I'm not alone.

Um, there is a big timer in the dockyard showing time until the event begins.  When it does start, you will get an instant boost and your points will start increasing with the bonus rate.  That first booster gives you a pretty good jump on things.

Hopefully they were just being mindful of us getting our flakes.  Then maybe start pulling the directives early?

Sub Octavian over on reddit is saying that Puerto Rico is only for hardcore players and for the 1% of the player base. I think this event needs revision to allow for people to actually complete it without given up so much time away from family.

Well he seems to be not listening to the that 1% and hardcore players as he puts it because if he was to read some of the comments by those various players he is referring to , there saying its to much for even them and they wont be doing it .

Besides that's just the spin doctors at work trying cover themselves with what I would term a very lame excuse and I am speaking mildly, i could think of a few other terms for that excuse.

Cheers
