Powerplay Made 1500 merits rank 4. Only got 1000cr woooot???!

OK I play for A, Lavingy Duval, over the past couple of weeks i built up 1500 merits which would put me into the rank 4 bracket which should have earned me 5 million bonus this morning with the weekly PP update. I found my merits reduced to 750 and a reward of 1000 credits.

I don't get this. I lost a whopping half merits and I was clearly over the 1500 merit mark for rank 4 and i got bog all. (And yes I handed all my merits over 12 hrs before the update.)

Also where did my merits go? i though only if you abandon the PP for a week you lose merits, i didn't i played PP consistently over a whole week.

If this is the way PP is set up the mechanics are utter rubbish. Something ain't right here.

What's going on?

Not impressed. :S:mad:

Next week you will get 5 millions. If this week you make another 750 merits, the other you will get another 5 millions and so on.

If you check your current rank, it should be rank 4 now. They are not paying you up front, though. You will get your 5 millions when the next cycle begins.
 
Well then with all respect Frontier need to describe their ranking system a little better because the way it's percieved in game and the reality is woefully inaccurate and misleading.

Thanks for your replies.

The merit decay is quite brutal.

It's like a real job, you only get paid at the end of the week. :D

Yes, to keep your rank you need to put in just as many hours.

I just wrote in a thread pretty much the exact same scenario - the way it is setup now just doesn't explain itself well

Things need to be simplified a bit (in terms of rank) - it just isn't intuitive
