OP  7/19/12 10:12:29 PM#1

Has Anet released or any rumors on how much gems cost, during BWE3 and at launch? Or we have yet to find out on friday.

I would probably buy gems after launch, but i have yet to see its prices.

There will be a wipe, but any Gems you buy this weekend will be credited back to your account in time for the Head Start leading up to launch day. Nice for Arenanet, since they can start making some money from Gems now, but also nice for players, since it gives you a chance to buy something this weekend and decide if your gem store purchases are worthy of a re-purchase once the game goes live.

I'll be buying some for BWE3. Since I passed on the CE and didn't find the Digital Deluxe Edition all that compelling, I'll probably top off my account with the difference, to support the game and to "make my own" special edition perks when the game launches. :)

So if you plan on buying GEMS anyway, buy them this weekend and you can spend them 2 times.

You got a source for this? If that's true then the US is getting a much better deal because $10 is about the same as 8 EUR right now...

Oh, and there is no way I'd buy gems for a beta, even if I'll be getting them back again later. What is in the gem store could be totally changed at release. You don't even know what you'll be spending that money on.

I don't think the game is PTW or anything like that but ANet (or NCSoft) are proving to be some right money grabbing bastards. Grabbing money before they have even earned the right to have it. I hope it doesn't continue like this.

that's mostly because of taxes, in all games europe gets the same price with usa with the difference it's EURO and not USD hence higher value.

Anyone know what the rate in British Pounds is? There is no way it can be £10 per 800.

Thanks. Lol, that's still the worst deal of the lot at current exchange rates.

Because that way they can test their transaction and payment system. So they can sort out any bugs or problems before the game launches. I'd say it's a really good move. Tho, they will wipe everything and return all the gems you bought this weekend to your account once the game launches.

You can spend them this time, but obviously anything you buy will not be on your account at release - though you will be credited with the gems that you purchased during BWE3 - personally I'll be buying a nice amount and looking about at what is good to buy with them and what is a waste of cash, then acting accordingly at release :P

That won't work, they will know where you are either from your IP, or from your credit card or paypal address...

It also includes the 20% VAT, whereas the $10 has tax added on at the end of the transaction.

 

Yes, as per usual UK pays a bit more, but in reality it is not by much.

that's a myth... not any game company can charge you your "taxes"... What would they do with them, collect taxes for each country and then send them back to citizens goverment?

It's just a well known way of making more money. Steam was doing that for a long time, but lately the rates of $ and € are somewhat as they should be.

This is because in EU VAT (between 19% and 21% depending on country) is included in every purchase as disctated by trade laws. In the US this is not (always) the case and folks should pay the VAT themselves some way or another which I don't know the details about.

It has been like this for ages and is also for example the reason why many of us euros have been importing media from the US for a looooong time (long before there was such thing as digital purchases) and hoping that customs wouldn't inspects those packages and send a bill to the recipient.

If NCsoft / Anet would do it according to exhange rate they would need to soak up the VAT costs themselves meaning they would get a lot less revenue from EU purchases than from US purchases.

Yes they can, as the money is transfered to their accounts outside of the country the payment originated then a tax is imposed on the total amount.
