I'll give you a hint 25%, 20%, 20%. I guess if you're not English speaking/reading you get a lower discount. I don't understand how these things can make it past the simple 'proof reading' part of a marketing exercises. This is an all to common and unnecessary occurrence.

Also can I ask why they all link to the same entry? What is the point in making the banner language specific, but once they get there they have to be able to read English anyways?

They still only point to an English on version of the page. Really defeats the purpose of a language specific banner?!

Maybe it has something to do with that whole VAT / international-taxes issue that was being discussed in other threads? Not being smart, really dunno if that's it or not. Pretty weird though :P

They have to use that extra 5% for bribes to bypass possible trade embargo's. But you didn't hear that from me.

Can't be, as it's 20 or 25% off TPs value of said Astral Diamond.

The VAT is applied when you trade real money for Turbine Points. not when you trade Turbine Points for something.

In that case I think it's just a real blunder during the creation of the picture as they all points towards the same page... They first thought to put it to 20% then decided to go 25% and forgot to change the value on the other pictures.

I just checked, now they are all displaying the 25%.

The sale is the same for all countries. The wrong image was uploaded initially, but we fixed it almost instantly. We had a bit of a caching issue yesterday and it took some time before the correct images were displaying.

As for the banner links, whatever language you've last selected to view the site is what you get sent to when you click on any ddo.com link.
