Strange prices

It seems that when you buy ships in Armory for doubloons you pay more compared to what you pay when you buy the same ships from the tech tree page. For example Duca D'Aosta in Armory is listed for 5000 dubs while in Italian tech tree it's listed for 4700 dubs. What the ...?

@dimzzy when bought from tech tree you have the option of including a 300 doubloon port slot and a 0 point captain for free or partly trained captain for 25 doubloons.

There's other issues with ship pricing in my opinion... $100 for a ship? $300 for a package? $60 for a commander?

This isn't Star Citizen... I think some prices could be revised to something more reasonable. When an internet boat starts costing more than it costs to buy a AAA title like Borderlands 3, I'll probably forget about the the internet boat and buy Borderlands 3 instead as I'd play that longer... :)

Please show me examples of these prices. Or do you mean $CAD?

I believe prices are set by what the market will bear.
Lots of people will pay the prices if they want something bad enough.

Yes, CDN for sure.

I've actually seen people blame WG for the conversion rate. Was funny.

Might be getting there with the $300.00 packs.

Quick call Derek Smart.

They charge what people will pay, plain and simple.  Until people stop buying, they have no reason to change.  Just like every other game with a premium shop.

Yes, Canadian prices. Here's the link to the store Canadians see.

The prices are pretty obnoxious in my opinion. I can get a AAA game from Steam or on my Xbox for the same price as some of these ships. I like WoWs... but not enough to pay $100 for an Alaska...

I figured it might've been Canadian prices, though when someone posts $ without further clarification, I'll always assume they meant American. But that's neither here nor there.

It's entirely fair that you don't want to pay that much for a ship. Fortunately most T9 premium ships are also available through other means. FXP in the case of Alaska.

As for the price being high - yes. Yes it is. But apparently people are willing to pay that much for it. And as long as they do, WG doesn't really have a reason to lower their prices. I mean, I like cars alright, but not enough to pay $500k for a Ferrari.
