They are running by completely different company and they have their own marketing that suits the country itself.

 

And that page is an event which of course has many discounts.

 

More... It seems cheap to the US audience, but it might be a significant amount to them, considering the exchange rage

They sell freaking Dragon flags... Jeesus. Thank the gods that only the Chinese can put up with blatant P2W... I don't mind the Dragon flags being released as rewards, or as bonuses for buying certain promotional stuff, but buying individually? Hell no.

The average income in China is right at $4,500.00 per year.

 

That's $375.00 per month.

 

That's $93.75 a week.

 

Now then, how many people do you really think can afford to throw away that much on a pixel boat?

Yes but the cost of living in China is cosiderably lower. I do wish WG would lower prices for US but the only reason why they are so high atm is because people here are willing to pay for it.

Still approx 3/4 of a day's take home pay, assuming the average Chinese person works a five-day week, and that $93.75 is after taxes.

 

For me, at that rate, the ship would cost me about $110 CDN. Pretty sure it was less on the NA server when it was available.

I am going to guess that the people in that bracket don't play warships.

 

I dunno, remember that's an average income level.

 

All you need is a residence of some sort, a PC, electricity, and internet. Assuming you bought a PC when you had some money, you don't even need a job to play warships, Social assistance level of income would do it.

 

And just as a guess, internet and a PC built of pirated parts are inexpensive in China.

Its the same product here or in China and its a digital, meaning it has zero physical value.

 

 We pay exorbitant prices in the US for the same product, always have and always will....

As it's already been said, the China server is not the same company and is kind of a wild west of no rules. They /did/ sell Tone not that long ago even though she wasn't even finished being developed and has since been removed from the code. So people paid for her, and then had her taken away. 

 

Don't envy these people. That server is a hot mess.

Here, China, Antarctica, Mars... whatever.

 

How much more do you think it costs WG to provide the same exact product in the US?

 

The development isn't done here, they pay for Servers and chuck some change in a bucket for Marketing and Advertisement. We are likely waaaaay heavier in regard to taxes but....

 

They charge whatever they want, or whatever they think we will likely pay.

 

Not what it is worth, because there is no real way to value the product.

Arizona's considered special?? Here on ASIA we can buy her straight from the Tech Tree:trollface::trollface:

Small consolation I guess for being WGs whipping boy

 

As for the CN server, well yeah..Less said about it the better.

Just about everything can be bought 'for the right price' and word on the street is that if you spend enough Yuan you can even buy your way into Supertest (or at very least get pre-release access to new ships/lines)
