    Mexico uses USD? Thought your currency was the peso.

    Just to let you know kabam has no say in the price difference in offers from country to country so you're complaining in the wrong forums

    The prices do not follow currency exchange values. I know for Canada, where I live, the 1.38 percent increase over USD is far higher than the current exchange rate, so Kabam is definitely profiting more from my purchases. It would be nice if t hey reset the rate once a year or so.

    Kabam literally can't do anything about it

    You are correct, I did the currency conversion so that the difference is appreciable

    Tbh with the state that the game is in, and the countless unhappy players due to a variety of ‘bugs’, I find it genuinely laughable that anyone who has worked reasonable hard for their money would bother wasting on this game right now.

    I appreciate hard work is going on in the background, which is what we’re told, and they have headed warnings about playing content which may cause excess costs compared to ‘normal’, but imho anyone spending money right now needs their head checked.

    The prices are set in USD, and are the same for everyone. The platforms adjust them based on location and current rate of Duties and Taxes.

    I believe canada as many other countries have large hidden vat ( value added taxes) that’s where most of the differences in pricing different from exchange rate come from.
    Everybody thinks free stuff is free but it never is, they just sneakily get the money for that free stuff from you in ways you don’t often notice. There’s nothing Apple or google or kabam can do, their legally required to collect your government taxes

    I just looked up Mexico vat tax. It’s 16% of all purchases are a hidden extra tax in addition to the others

    It's no different to spending before. Someone liked the game and wanted to progress-> spend money on offers. Someone still likes the game now and wants to progress-> spend money on offers. We will be compensated anyways.

    That would make perfect sense to me if the game was working fine. And I’m sure there are plenty of people who haven’t experienced the issues. But those who are having problems, spending money on it seems stupid.

    I’m not trying to discourage anyone from spending, far from it, without the income Kabam may have to ditch the game and I’d be devastated, but I couldn’t even comprehend spending my hard earned money on something that was broken.
