So you "get back" 28%... and the next time you get back 28% of the previous 28%, meaning after 2-3 times it's practically nothing. Lol

Maths is off here. Assuming you earn the same amount each time then that 28% value increases each time as each refund accumulates to a higher total resources.

28% of 100%

28% of (100% + 28%)

28% of (100% + (28% of (100% + 28%)).

Etc etc.

You might recognize this as an infinite series. You might not. It converges to a limit and that limit depends on the specifics of the series. 28% is about a random a number as 33%, so let's use 33% since it's easier.

33% of 100%

33% of (100% + 33%)

etc.

Converges to 1.5 after forever.

So their math wasn't off, nor was their conclusion, after 2 or three times it's practically nothing, and, I quote, "Lol."

This is not diminishing returns as was describe.

You don't seem to understand and have an error in your math, so let me try to explain it more detailed:

First of all let's not forget that we got materials to start with from CG. I am pretty sure we will not get them with every new set/round, just for the start now because they introduced them. This will definitely not be given to us with every new set/round.

Then look at the amount we actually get during Conquest and we see it's not much and let's also keep in mind not everyone is playing hard mode and the crates aswell as the nodes in normal definitely have even less of the materials.

Almost half of what I could do with my DCs was with what I got in the beginning from CG. With that I could bring a DC to level 3 and could do 1 reroll for LS/DS. Everything else I got now during Conquest was marginal, I got 1 DC to level 3 and 1 to 1. For clarity, I am playing normal mode.

If we take my example, just to try to make it easy, let's say what CG gave me made up 40% of what I had in total and I accumulated the other 60%(so my personal 100% without CGs gift).

Now let's get to the maths: let's assume the number of 28% given is the right amount. This means when the next round starts/ set comes out you will start with only 28% of what you've had in total -including- CGs gift. It would take a lot more farming even in hard mode to accumulate the same amount you had before with the given materials from CG, so it's safe to assume, you will end the next round with less in total than you've had the round before with the gift.

If you farm around the same you did the round before, this means you've accumulated again roughly the amount of what made 60% of your personal (100%) total in the round before + the 28% you started this round with = 88%(no gift from CG this time). That is your new total 100%, which is less than the round before.

Next round comes around and your 28% will be less than what you started with in the round before, because your total will be less than it was in the first round... etc, etc... you catch my drift?

The only way you can get to the same amount in total is if you spend more, be it crystals for refreshes or spend more in the shops for the materials themselves.
