Unfair foreing exchange

It's not fair, 6000 auric cells costs 50$ in US but in Europe (Euros) costs 59$ >_<

50$ = 42,3092382 €

    50$ are not equal to 50€!!!! Come on! :(((((((

  • lasombra1979lasombra1979 Member Posts: 1,142

    Is that including VAT in the price?

    They don't have taxes in US? Then why the DLC is 8$ and here is 5'69€?

    I was hyped going right of the bat to the cosmetic store to buy 6.000 auric cells and then... Slap in the face!!!

  • lasombra1979lasombra1979 Member Posts: 1,142

    Sales taxes in the US are state by state so it varies. The state I am in has a 7.5% sales tax. Also, I was just asking if the price was including VAT. If it included VAT, I could understand, if it didnt, that just sucks.

    Yeah, 50$ equals ~42€, so that's a big overkill. @lasombra1979 in Europe, it is a common thing, that all prices have the VAT included.

    Thanks for the explanation @popoles.

    Well, due the silence from developers, I just spend 70€ in cosmetics (plus the DLC) instead of the 50€ planned. Good marketing job, but I'm not a happy customer 8(

    Lmao, the devs did everything right then.

    Yeah, but after I defend them everywhere, inciting people to play, to buy, I loved them... Now I feel cheated and more probabbly in a short matter of time my love will turn into hate if they don't resolve this or give a convincing explanation.

    Come on, it's like a bad joke, in my Steam review, someone from Switzerland (Europe) wrote this:
    They charge me 50 CHF for 6000 AC (~50.80 USD or ~43 EUR).
    I don't think the devs know how currencies work.
    Obviously they believe that 50 FOO = 50 BAR

    I wrote in twitter inmediatly but they, later, answered a lot of console release complains and nothing about it. I wrote in Reddit, I wrote here that supposed to be, quote, "a place where we have more feedback with them". >_<

    If you bought it, that shows them as a company you were willing to buy it despite the insane pricing.

    That will solve nothing and is counter productive. You simply shouldn't have bought the cosmetics.

    Yeah, but they can not hype me an entire month, showing me something that I died for play with, waiting for this day like if was my son's birthday & don't do it. I hope they resolve this.

    The fact you flip out and get this hyped over cosmetics instead of actual gameplay and stuff is exactly why companies do the things they do like unfair pricing.

    You can not buy it. It's called willpower. Companies prey on people like you, I'm gonna be 100% honest. It isn't your fault or anything, it's the sleazy tactics made by these companies that go right after people and their desires.

    Dont fall for it. Stop giving these people your money. They will not change a thing if you give them money.

  • onarkonark Member Posts: 97

    Thank you, @weirdkid5, wise words. I guess we can learn from our mistakes.

  • ZappyBoiZappyBoi Member Posts: 29

    bE does not care about you. They only made this game for a profit, their decisions are driven by what can make them money. Do not moan about what you chose not to purchase, bE does not care.

    Exactly why I bought some skins. They look nice and unless you're getting a very rare one they're very affordable. Fully outfitted my Dwight and wraith and still have enough remaining for another character, or a couple of new weapons. Besides the price of the very rare skins, I've been very pleased with the implementation.  :)

    That's awesome, dude, but the point of this thread is that I bought 8250 auric cells for 70€ (82$) when the real price must be 59€ (70$)

    The real price? Devs set the real price and it seems that you are willing to pay 70€, so why should they only be satisfied with 59€? :wink:
    As long as you dont react and close your wallet, devs will be confirmed in their approach

    I already said "I can learn from my mistakes". I have 90 likes in reddit atm with the same thread, and we are only the vocal people, I'm giving them the chance to rectify being vocal, but out there are tons of people who are seeing this unfair assault to the foreign customers and their wallets will be hermetically closed and the image of the company is going down fast. I have a lot of europeans friends players of DBD that are very unpleased right now with this. Many of them can't voice their opinions cause they don't speak english, but I bet you they lost any intention to buy something.

  • BarpleBapkinsBarpleBapkins Member Posts: 36

    It's probably just some sort of error that they'll end up fixing relatively soon, I'm not sure what the hell they were doing when dealing with regional prices.

    Well, I really hope you are right and they do something quickly. I also did a review of the DLC on Steam with this issue and I have 80 likes & 12 LOLs, with comments from New Zealand, UK, Switzerland, Canada, Finland, Italy, even Turkey! complaining about this.

    My wallet is closed because of the broken balance and because devs show no intention to fix that.
    I couldnt care less about a few bucks difference, but at the moment they are not even geting a cent from me :wink:

  • onarkonark Member Posts: 97

    I agree with you with their lack of intention to fix things (I still landing in the wrong side of the pallet, I still spawning a lot of times super close to the killer at the beginning of the match....) But is not only a question of a few bucks difference, it's a question of unfair treatment to non-american players.

  • CatastropheCatastrophe Member Posts: 58

    You know what. I was charged 1,750 baht (54.48 USD) for 6000 Auric Cells and today the price just dropped to 993 baht (29.04 USD). I feel like being cheated here too and no one seems to care.

  • ComelyStarComelyStar Member Posts: 186

    The prices have now been adjusted to the proper exchange rates. £4.80 for the smallest pack has now dropped to £3.75 (which actually equals to $5). But no actual reduction of prices in sight.

  • Jack11803Jack11803 Member Posts: 3,930

    Guys you are taking this way to seriously as some mistreatment or screw over. It’s just the devs not knowing how to MATH AT ALL. Just another error they made, that’s be fixed shortly. I knew it was gonna happen, or at least something with the cells would happen.

    You mean adjusted to the proper exchange rates in your country. In Euro region we still have the wrong conversion of 50$=50€

    I understand they can't refund me the amount cheated, but I would be satisfied if they give me the proper amount of auric cells that I bought.

    And there you got another priceless comment in my steam's review (with now 103 likes & 20 LOLs) :
    6000 auric cells in Rubles = 1333 RUB (22$) :)
    In Russia you can basically buy 18.000 cells for the price of 6000 in Europe:D That's a bit crazy I thinkXD

  • twistedmonkeytwistedmonkey Member, Trusted Posts: 4,050

    I would email support and post the question to them, it seems no one is getting an answer from the devs about it on here but many other region prices have changed as it seem the conversions were screwed up.
