    Why do gems cost more in the uk? [resolved]

    Last week 525 gems in the UK cost 32 now since you have changed over to the Dollar it costs 6.50 more this week, that is a big difference as the exchange rate is poor, why should it cost more for us poor Brit players.

    It's a USA based game.
    Everything is subject to the exchange rate of the dollar.
    It would probably be different for USA players if it were a Britain based game.

    USA players have to spend $49.50 for 525 gems, you can purchase gems cheaper.

    32.10 for 525 gems converts to roughly $42.27.
    At $49.90 USD for 525 gems, it looks like your getting the better bargain.

    Exchange rates are pretty good in Norway compared to US/UK:

    Example: I pay NOK 300 for 525 gems ($36.7 or 28.0) and NOK 600 for 1100 gems ($73.4 or 56.1)...happy happy!
