    Default DDO 12-Month VIP sub confusion

    The DDO 12-Month VIP sub promotion listed on the in-game spash screen shows $99.99 but the website links and info page show $79.99.

    Which is it?

    I believe you are looking at it in two different currencies. $99.99 USD, 79.99 Euros ( I think that's how it is currently )

    You're looking at the UK page. Note the "£" instead of the "$".

    Click the American flag in the upper left corner to switch to dollars. For some reason, I get defaulted to UK sometimes, as well. Don't know why.

    British Pounds. The Euro price is 89.99. The only pages with Euro prices are also in French and German, so it is very unlikely to be mistaken for a dollar price.

    This.

    They never used to and I never knew exactly how much I was spending or if I would incur some kind of extra charge for payign in $ before. Now with the prices all being available in £ its much much much much much much much (etc) nicer

    Just be glad if you are paying the $99.99 in dollars.

    89.99 in euros is $123.39 in dollars.

    79.99 in pounds is $125.80 in dollars.

    At least, according to the current exchange rates.

    Yeah but we pay tax with the price. Those $ dudes need to pay it separately.

    That's changed then, I remember it being different... Then again, I guess 3rd world countries deserve a lower price and all that. :P

    The UK has been ripping off it's own people for centuries. They have at least twice as many taxes as most other nations.

    The U.S does the same. taxes on taxes that were taxed after you had paid taxes on them before.
    I remember reading once about a tea party in Boston where we, the people, stood up against Taxation. I miss those days (if i was there to miss them).

    Actually that Tea Party was because the U.S. did not want to pay the silly excessive taxes that the U.K. was imposing on them. Having lived in both nations, I can assure you there are quite a bit more taxes in the UK.

    Default Currency

    OK, is a rip-off, but £6.66 per month is still not bad... would be nice if clicking the flag allowed me to change the currency from pounds to dollars (it doesn't, have just tried it- it put me back out to the log in screen, and when I do so, am back to pounds....) because my credit card company will automatically do the conversion at NO CHARGE, so would be paying £64-odd as opposed to £80.... C'est la vie!
