Why is there such a disparity between NA and EU prices? On the I-180-3 you have for essentially the same $14.99 price (give or take a $ or 2 with exchange rates, $14.99=€12.76):

 

Plane + Slot + 100% Pilot + 3 Days Premium

 

But EU gets 2x as many Fire/First Aid kits (6 each) and 2.5x the Gold (2500 v 1000)? Not to mention RU can buy the same (but no Gold or kits) for €6.80?

 

Can't we standardize offers across regions rather than leaving one group aggrieved? Plus those of us who bought consumables, gold or premium time already don't really need more, so why not at least offer the stripped down RU version on NA and EU?

 

Surely folks- like customers- will eventually get tired of being force fed items they don't need just to jack up WG's revenue stream? And this on a product I'd like to support but whose chances of survival given pre-2.0 history are at best iffy?

 

What possible rationale is there for these differences, or not to put all the options out there in the shop for all regions so folks- like customers- can choose which is best suited for them?

Each region has it's own marketing team who set the specials and prices. NA is always a little bit more than EU.

 

It is what it is

There were always diff deals for diff servers in their games depending on which marketing suit gets to the office first.  In wot there's a new event with diff special deals for diff servers, eu getting the shaft apparently and many cc's outright boycotting it, whereas NA prizes are much better and include prem tanks. People said that's due to dwindling NA pop base and wg NA trying to boost up the player numbers. In wows, holiday deals varied greatly as well last year causing uproar.

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe they should consolidate their marketing teams so they're all working off the same hymn (and FX Exchange Rate) sheet, and beef up their programming efforts- this game is going to need A LOT of work to bring it up to the same level as its WG stablemates.
