WarGaming... U guys just had to be greedy... That extra 39 cents is the difference between me spending just $25.19 and not $100 with my gifted pre paid visa's...

I know I'm not the only one here that see's that as a pure greed money grab.

 

Canadians get shafted again.

 

Cheers from Ontario.

Vote out the socialist and maybe your "Canada cash" will be worth more. :trollface:

 

But seriously, if .39 was the difference in buying, it sounds like you didn't want whatever it was that much. You'll get over it and you're be better off not giving WG the money anyway.

I like how they say "no fees", yet every package of boxes I bought came with fees.

Blame goes to your bad exchange rate. You really think WG set the price to annoy Canadians?

That's a credit card issue not a wargaming issue. Unless your on the OPs 39 cent complain train

I mean what would u guys do if you had 2 $50 cards... 

you cant buy four $25.19 bundles..

you cant buy 2 $50.39 bundles...

all they had to do was lower the price by $0.30 usd per 25 pack and they woulda made a craptun more money from Canadians...

Take your 35 cents and use it to cover the HST on a box of Scotties tissues....they are the softest.

 

Like really? As if WG has any control in determining the value of the Cdn dollar vs US dollar. 

 

Grow up, please.

You are missing my point... Its simple maths... drop 39 cents (cad) and sell 1000's more $50 boxes...

You're missing the point... international monetary exchange rates change by the minute... USD goes up or down, CAN $ goes up or down... mostly down... it's not logical to expect a company to juggle it's prices on a minute by minute basis so that you can maximize your $50 gift cards.

No. I understand your point completely. You are whining.

 

Did you consider that there is more than 2 countries who use the NA server; did you consider the conversion rate for the price of loot boxes in US dollars vs the Mexican Peso, the Brazilian Real or the Bolivian Boliviano? Did you consider how unfair it would be for players from other NA server countries to have to pay more because of a difference in conversion rate just to give you a nice round number?

 

No,  you didn't.

You are doing exactly the same thing I am... stating an opinion. The only difference is I'm not insulting people. That says enough about you.  You trolls can bugger off any time.

Another victim of socialism wants to blame capitalism for his own perceived victimization. Don't be so upset about your dollarette. Given it's bountiful resources and small/well educated population, Canada should have the strongest currency and economy on the planet. You need to answer for yourself why that's not the case...

 

On the plus side I bought another 25 boxes for 40 USD today and got a Defender, an IS-3A and a Leafblower. Did way better than my first 25...

Canada doesn't have the population nor the power to have the strongest currency...

 

 

On the plus side, 100 boxes got me the defender, is-3a, leaf blower and 90k gold...

So you want WG to subsidize our crappy canadian dollar by taking a hit themselves so the final price matches US and Canadian dollars?  when you travel to you call people you guy from greedy if they dont adjust their pricing for you to account for exchange?
