    Default Platinum.

    Good luck on getting pay to play. Platinum is way out of my budget now the price has gone up. Global economy is affecting everyone and food and keeping warm this coming winter is more important for me.
    In fact, I don't play enough these days to warrant purchasing.
    Was it absolutely necessary to put the price up by that amount?

    How much does it cost now? For me it still shows the 89.99 usd. Or did the lower packs change in price?

    If I remember correctly, platinum is more expensive on mobile because of some extra fee on playstore or something

    The prices have changed. United Kingdom is not in the EU and we don't use the euro. It's gone up a lot here in UK.
    I also saw some people in other countries that are not in the EU say that it has gone up.

    Costs the exact same in US dollars. Given the rate of inflation since this game came out, and the fact that we have plat sales every month, Platinum is relatively less expensive than it used to be. Sorry, that's a global economy problem, not an sts problem

    Global economy is affecting everyone and i guess that includes StS, right? In case you forgot, they also need food and 'keep house warm'.
    You don't even play enough their FREE TO PLAY game, and nobody ever forced you to buy plat, not to mention the amount of plat sales and offers we have nowadays

    So what's the rant about?

    Yeah prices seemed to have gone up but will be due to currency inflation etc,

    Also when buying plats through say iOS or android the operating system also add a fee to the price of the purchase for using their services to make the payment.

    Best way to keep it cheap as possible is use the website instead to make plat purchase through PayPal.

    https://store.spacetimestudios.com/W...0-a680fbc6537c

    That way you just pay dollars and PayPal or your bank will do the conversion instead of apple or Google and no fees either..

    So a 1700 pack of play is still around 77/78 pounds

    She has every right to rant with the drop in quality AL has had over the years. The best example are pets.
    They went from awsome and really unique, one could say even one-of-a-kind designs, to simple recolors and foot circles, to current designs that their children made in paint.

    And I can say that I personally prefered the recolours and circles over the whatever we are getting now.

    I sympathize with you, Susie. With the cost of rl going up, I have less money for entertainment. It’s a matter of paying my bills over buying platinum. Kinda like supply vs demand but it’s needs vs wants. I need food and fuel. I can only splurge on low cost entertainment atm. Sorry STS your at the bottom of my money chain rn.


    I’m rubber and you’re glue, what bounces off me, sticks on you..

    So what's the rant about?
    What's your problem? I made a comment about plat costing more. I don't play as much as I used to but I can still comment.
    I have supported this game for years and I don't "rant".
    I also don't and haven't done offers.
    It's not the game that I have a problem with actually..it's people like you.
    I have a choice and made it, I can't justify paying for any game, not just AL when I have to pay for the necessary things in real life.
    Some people can afford it and good luck to them.
    By the way, I do have a right to rant if I choose to, as someone here mentioned. I haven't really seen anything worth paying real money for when I come to think about it.
    I don't like wisps and auras and I already have enough to keep me going (if I choose to that is).
    I did mention global economy but obviously it isn't affecting everyone. My mistake.
    Have a nice day and best wishes!

    We did not raise the price of Platinum in your region. We don't do region-specific pricing at all. The cost for Platinum remains the same (*in USD).

    Currency exchange rate affects the price you pay when you use certain payment providers.

    Some of your fellow players have indicated this in constructive ways - while others appear to be triggered by your comments... so I'm going to close this.

    Best wishes!
