And yet you still pay for your food in the supermarket not at the home grown prices, say the cost of a banana in Jamaica, but at European prices, or do you go hungry? It's called trade. And while in this case it's a pixel tank, or whatever, the costs of running servers in the EU has to be met, and those costs are very likely to be considerably more than costs in Russia. So while the product is the same in both areas, just as a banana is similar, the costs of getting it to you increase the cost of the product to you.

 

Why would a server cost more to run in Europe? If that is true WG should be selling server space,not making games.

 

I think price discrimination and skimming is illegal, the European Union should start doing something about this and impose a fine on WG. Unless the difference is due to VAT, I don't see why prices can be different.

 

Actually Disney stores and some other companies also do it with UK, and the EU still hasn't done anything....

which still is no good reason to charge different prices.

 

reminds me of the double pricing in Thailand. if you are a foreigner, you pay more (double or triple) for the same product or service.

 

Actually it's a very good reason to charge more and happens all the time in all countries and industries.

That's it, I'm off to ASDA to demand they charge us the same for bananas as they do in Africa.

Do you think that IBM, or Dell or anyone else, sells their Servers, at a single price in every country?

Aside from the extras like hard drives, network cards, which all differ in price, even the basic shells would sell for different amounts according to how much the supplier thinks they can get away with charging. So, yes, a server in the EU could very well cost more that a server in Russia. 

Does a Merc or a BMW cost the same in Germany as it does in UK? I would bet it doesnt, and that is without considering any effect exchange rates may have on the price.
