WoT: Price Differences Between Countries and The Problems Of It

notice that on WoT EU the Argentine players are getting less in-game currency for more than quadruple of their money spent

According to a user’s location, the prices of the in-game goods can vary from being few $ up to hundreds of dollars.
The prime example of it is Argentina where everything costs less because of the country’s economy.
In the past, it might have caused exploits by changing your Place of Residence to Argentina because WarGaming had to change their purchase options on the EU server.
Recently an Argentine reader contacted us with a huge problem about how they are unable to afford anything from the World of Tanks EU Premium Shop.
It is because of the before-mentioned reasons, there were several exploitation attempts from players to use cheaper buying options by changing their Place of Residence for example to Argentina or Turkey.

It’s unfortunate for the Argentine WoT EU community because for their income the prices are exceptionally high and many of them are switching to other games because of it.

It is a subject of debate whether WarGaming EU is aware of the Argentine players’ situation.

  1. So as an Argentine player who plays in EU server, the player needs to pay ~100$ for 25k gold.
    Meanwhile for that amount of gold in NA, it costs 10$.
    The difference is rather small actually, only 10 times higher =))))))

      1. 40$ for 10k gold in EU => 100$ for 25k gold in EU.
        10$ for 25k gold in NA.
        Are you sure your eyes are working well sir? XD

  2. I have Argentinian friends playing on the EU server. And the price they pay for a wot item is exaggerated compared to the price in NA. Adding that they cannot migrate their accounts to said server.
    From my point of view, comparing the images, it is incredible how wargaming only cares about money instead of its clients. A pity for the Argentines.

  3. I am from Argentina, I play NA server, SA server had a very low population so to get in a battle takes too long sometimes. The ping on NA from Argentina is 160 – 180 ms if you had a good connection. Cant imagine how bad must be to play from here on EU server, so I dont see the point of it.
    As soon as to the price subject, yes, economy here is shit, cant afford a pair of newe shoes, but hey! pixels tanks are cheap, is sad, but I take it.

    1. We should just Geolocation-lock every single South American on the SA server. Instead of seeing retarded SA players I just see Retarded Boomers and Rednecks. Problem solved.

        1. Are you surprised by now? TAP is infested with far right racists, and I wish Seb did something about them since they ruin every discussion they join.

            1. doublestandard

              Seems to be a very common thing for the far right – you know, MY freedom but not everyone else’s, MY job but not everyone else’s, MY ideals but not everyone else’s, and so on.

              I understand if you don’t get it though, the average fascist is pretty lacking in brain capacity.

              1. I think you’re actually describing you and your communist lefties.
                You are the real fascists.

              2. Here you see an example of a brainwashed AntiFA fan boy who desperately tries to justify left-wing communism and the more self-destructive left-wing movement as the only true thing – that’s what Sciontology and Jehovah’s Witnesses say too. The outdated ideas come from the old white men of the former GDR, who, in the spirit of Marx or others, made misguided poor individuals submissive to the Russian occupying power by brainwashing them into what they want and what they don’t want – a 180 turn…In the past it was the RAF – you know the story – today it’s the AntiFA… with a bit of a green touch, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to reach so many people in a short time… – the methods are exactly the same as those used by the Nazis back then s have applied. THAT is a double standard: against all non-supporters of the left-green-woke movement, the same (ultra-) right-wing political stance is taken, but in return, history is only repeated, except that no Jews are being gassed today, but all light-skinned people to be specified as an enemy and to be exterminated from colored humanity. Maybe you should read less Jehovah’s Bible or J.Hubbin books and read history books and – unmanipulated LG populism – news.
                I’m absolutely not a fan of left, green, New Awakening or right – I live by “live and let live” (natural law) if someone has earned it (what have YOU done so far other than disturbing the government and population?!) . If he is friendly and stays out of my possessions, if I do the same, if he attacks me, or if he tries to take my life and/or property (which Muslims like to do, see India, North Africa, and see history), then I defend myself. If he brought in friends who wanted to support him, then we would be back in class warfare that would lead to genocide.
                Are you sure you want to kill (at least expel/suppress) all non-colored people if you are a light-skinned person yourself? Everything else is pure racism from colored people against light-skinned people…we had that before, before the abolition of slavery, do you remember, or did your parents and school fail here?!
                Unfortunately, you are too cowardly to discuss this very big and complex topic fairly, otherwise you wouldn’t hide behind internet anonymity. First defaming someone for no reason and then fleeing – under the guise of being a woke person, which unfortunately some morbidly insane people associate themselves with instead of going to the doctor – is very brave. The only problem is: once your real name and place of residence become known, you suddenly become a weak, begging racist – against whatever… – grow up and free yourself from your Sientology-like link/green woke rigidity and help people survive today when rich people and corporations exploit or attack your loved ones and neighbors.

                However, you should probably go to a political portal because we don’t want to read your political views here, we want to have fun – no matter what skin color or religion you have – tanks, ships, planes and the fun in the game is why we are here – that doesn’t belong in politics and woke madness, gender nonsense and the like!

                my 2 cents.

  4. The real question would be… what is an Argentine player doing in EU… having a server of our own right here (well close, in Brazil)

    1. I play I am from Argentina and I play in the EU. In 2014 several Argentine players and others from Latin America. WoT advertising came out BUT only from Europe, not from Latin America. And many, due to a wargaming error, registered in the EU and began their stories like every player.
      What’s more, I saw advertising on the FOX channel and below it said http://www.worldoftanks.com but when searching the internet it only came up (.eu).
      And I’ll be realistic… I don’t see a difference between playing in NA with 180/210ms ping (nobody plays SA and don’t fool me) than in EU 220/300ms. Not a big difference. And if they claim otherwise, it is directly your internet provider.

      1. I can echo this, playing on the test server/EU server with 180~230ms ping is indistinguishable between the two pings. WG’s netcode is very good; it helps that one of the EU server hosts is one of the best in Europe. However, there’s a lot of close-in fighting tactics and strategy that become unviable above 100ms ping.

      2. 200 to 300 is a big difference. I play from Japan on NA and I get about 180-210. Occasionally, thwre will be days when it’s around 300 and at that point, you can seriously notice a difference. Your tank moving much later, your shots firing and taking time to see it.

  5. These mofakers charged us europeans like 12-13 euro for a premium month here on EU
    bearly now last cuple of years -1-2 they came down with the prices
    People start to observe now how dogshit they truly are on making premium content and actualy caring for the game’s healt, sell those banans before they get on the expiration date [WG]

  6. If you’re concerned about prices for a trivial video game, chances are you have much more to worry about.

  7. Literally every platform has this. Steam games are like 10% of the EU/NA price in some poor countries.

  8. lol argentinians on EU yeah sure sure

    chinese alts crying they have to pay now.

    its the same monkeys gaming the system. ps. everybody should do it. it goes by account creation country. go for it boys, argentini vpns and new accounts and stack em bills :)))

    thats what this shit tiered pricing deserves. argentina isnt any poorer than mexico or canada. where are mexican discounts?

  9. This pricing problem exist in the Asia Server too. The prices are all the same across Asian countries and not based on the economy of their respective country making richer country have more access to the premium store.
