    Thank you for the info, but why wait till after it happend to tell us? Post date on the announcement is today's date.
    The reply I got from Apple when I asked about why no one was notified about the new changes..I was told they notified the developers on the changes and it was their responsibility to inform there players/customers.

    Apple gave the developers less than a day's notice on the price changes, I think?

    I might buy this if the change was for more cash in a company pocket, but given its a new international tax. Nope, people knew about this for a time now..and everyone kept it quiet till almost after the fact(it was after the fact for a lot of people)

    Hi there, while indeed Gree has nothing to do with this VAT and conversion rate/fee adaption by apple it would still be a good sign if Gree could adjust the gem prizes for each country to balance it on its own by reducing the costs of gems by the amount of VAT at least.

    I understand that it would be a lot of work but the disparity througout the world is simply too high and without any change it would simply reduce the playing and spending community by a lot.

    This game lives by all their participants around the globe and the most affected countries in Scandinavia, Europe and Russia are a big part of it.

    Understanding that Gree cant change this adaption by Apple i still look forward to a more balanced reaction for each country which has the same value in balance as any other balancing change could have done ingame on factors or anything else.

    Thank you in advance

    If the price isn't lowered again, they are gonna loose a lot of gem buyers. I know I can't keep on buying gems like I have. It went up from $100 to $145 for me and that is way to much.

    from $105 to $139 here in UK... crazy increase. I agree wholeheartedly with Ryan Gree needs to adjust their gem price as other games have .... I play at least one other game where Diamond/gem price for top package was 69.99 same as a mountain was here in KA but in the other game their new price is now 79.99 making it a 10 rise which is bad enough but affordable unlike the 22 increase here..... If other games can do it I don't see why Gree cant

    this increase is not limited to just gree games.....it has increased in a game I play now.....I expect it will be the same for most games pending a change in price from the game company in question

    Yes but the increase was ridiculous! It was 45%! Now it's lowered again though and the increase for me is 25% instead of 45%, so it's a bit better.

    Because it different point and did want this important point getting lost in the other thread.

    So looks like everyone ok with Gree hiking there prices the most.I know I not Gree the highest prices I seen so far in the uk mostly other Devs only put up there prices by 10 pounds to 79.99 not the 91.99 gree has absolutely disgusting and taking advantage of the apple situation and us.
