Here on the console we have a similar thing (feel free to correct me if Im wrong), the USD is the leading currency but when they set prices  and than they translate that one to one to other currencies. For example; when somethign is decided to cost 80 USD they automaticly make it 80 for Europe as well. But 80 USD is not the same amount of money as 80 in Euros or Pounds  Unfortuanly It´s something that isnt exclusively Wargaming, a lot of companies (not only gaming companies) do this; for exmaple Ive seen the same thing happening with Assassins Creed by Ubisoft. There for we in Europe in gerenal are charged more; which to my opinion isnt fair but most people accept it I quess or dont know this. 

 

 

Nope, u are  wrong.

Yes the leading currency is US Dollar but prices are only converted to regional currency.

In example: biggest package costs about 100$ but it cost 379 Złotych  (Polish currency). But we must work about 42hrs to earn that many (using minimal paycheck in both examples) and for the same package US citizens must work for about 14hrs. Minimal pay in US 7,25$/h and minimal pay in Poland 1,90$/h.  Can u see difference?

Any progress from WG on making this right. I bought the STA-2 and lowe black. sold my STA-2 for 1,500,000 silver. I'll gladly ask for it back and get a gold credit instead. Besides that, the store wasn't working properly and i couldn't buy more gold at the time. Fix it WG. FFS fix it!

I just put in a ticket about this to WG then found this thread.

 

Anyway my point was that I asked for a discount on the black IS6 since I already had the standard one and was told no......then I saw the news article saying about the 50% gold discount which even mentioned individual tank purchases. I was kinda disappointed cos I would have purchased the Black IS6 at a 50% gold discount  (if the percentage was worked out fairly) and thought I had missed out/potentially been misinformed.

I didn't realise it was already a well known issue for PC only tho so now I'm waiting for my NO!!!!! reply to come back......kinda feels like fairly players who put in a ticket asking for a discount should have a "second chance" at 50% off but I dunno if that's the way it goes...(well "pc only" means it isn't to be fair to WG)...plus I already spent the gold on a Type 59 and would probably want to swap that out which is issue #2

Still no official response from marketing then? PC had this sorted fairly quickly, and now it's just starting to look embarrassing on the company.

Well their marketing team should have a representative here on the forum also, that way the other staff can get on with their duties rather than cleaning up another departments mess.

Almost 8000 views and a Superb rep for Don Thommo!!

But NO further response; I guess they continue to hope this "goes away".  Just step up and do the sensible thing WGW, you are still making bank :coin:

Naff all else that's good has come from the thread yet so at least someone benefits from it lol

 

Was certainly a thought provoking message though and well worth the rep points ;)

Cute. Still nothing from WG.

 

And people are so quick to try to correct me whenever I say PC has by far the superior developing team.

The reply I got for my ticket  (asking if console could have similar 50% gold discounts) is that it is a PC only thing and that there are more "flags" related to black tanks on console than  PC.....

I'm not really complaining........just wanted clarification.....and that was it

On the PC the sales of the T34 B wasnt good at all, although I got no idea how many of the Black Editions were sold on console. Not that it says something about how many of them were sold on console; but during the sale I didnt encounterd a lot of them during battles. After the sale ended I saw more of them but to my opinion it were as many as how I oftend seen in the past when premiums were released.

 

I own four of the tech tree versions and I would have paid for an upgrade in a heartbeat, and like many others I held back in purchasing the "black editions" for all the reasons that have been named. I seriously hope that Wargaming has learned from this because its an awsome game which I still like to play for many years to come, but I quess we have to be a little more patience till we (if ever) hear something serious from Wargaming Console. According to "WGWPAIN, " there is still hot debate going on at HQ, which tells me that the big wigs still think that they are right or just don't wanna lose face yet.

 

This is one of the problems when people try to apply marketing practices for physical goods to marketing virtual goods. With physical goods there are limitations of production capabilities but with virtual goods no such limitation exists

So often marketers look at how many DID sell completely missing the far more important concept of how many "could have" sold

I used to think that it would be better to ONLY play against opponents that were at the same or a similar level of skill to me too


Then when I thought about it I realised that being in a match with 6 2 year olds, 12 corpses, 4 blind people, 3 people with no arms, and 4 people in comas might not be as much fun as I had initially imagined

That's why I wuv my waffle soooooooo much

I thought only the freedom had a flag?

Did they make a black freedom reskin with an extra flag that I havent heard about? If so I want one, and I want it NOW!!!!


But thats hardly surprising, WG are 12th dan masters in answer-fu,the art of providing ninja answers.
