Dont know about you folks, but I was considering buying some more points to spend on some new bits and pieces in the store. Earlier this year I spent £33 GBP for a big pile and expected to find things the same. After all the dollar is at about the same lv vs sterling. We havent gone to war with each other,and the annual sub is on sale at just under £80. I got a bit of a shock though to find that the price is now just under £40 for the top bundle! Thats a big increase, or does the addition of a few hundred extra points justify the hike? Please someone tell me that I have missed the blindingly obvious and should really be thanking those lovely people for lightening my bank account even more.

Someone did the Math for USD, and we're actually getting more points per dollar spent. Are you absolutely positive your experience is not the same?

A lot has happened in the past year.
Turbine went to Europe and the result was, in short, taxes.

Some reading material here (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=310021&highlight=VAT).

I don't understand one thing.
Greece and Italy got finnancial problems, but why Euro is getting more expensive?
Someone at Turbine is not educated enough, so they decided all EU countries (except UK) must pay in Euro instead of their currency/USD as always.
Well, no points in 2012 for me :/

You did notice that the top pack of points is something like 1300 more points than it used to be, right?
