  1. Dear players of Skyrama all over the world,

    I would like to get opinions on the following:

    I am from The Netherlands. I have been playing Skyrama for a couple of years now.
    While playing Skyrama, happy hour popped up onto my screen multiple times. I know there are players out there who spend alot of money during Happy Hour.

    So i am thinking today: hmm interesting, lets see the aircash shop. Let's see if i can get my hands on some Aircash.

    I go to the shop.... and the price for 3300 aircash (biggest package) is €99,99 for me.

    Now... what happens when i switch over to a Turkish account? The biggest package (99,99) in the Turkish store is only €40,78! (300 LIRA).

    So let me get this straight:
    - Turkish players pay 59.22% less for the same amount of Aircash.


    Sounds like price-discrimination to me.

    Why did Bigpoint make this decision? What are the arguments behind this weird, to me unfair, price?

    And please, don't get me wrong. I am enjoying myself playing this game. But when i came across this..... my mind was blown...

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Cees,

    the issue is that the Turkish Lira has lost a lot of its value compared to the Euro in the last years. The exchange rate increased strongly during this time, also visible in this plot here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_lira#/media/File:Euro_exchange_rate_to_TRY.svg

    The prices for the Aircash packages have been set in the past and when the game started (around 2012), 300 TL corresponded to slightly a bit more than 100€. Due to the value loss of the TL, 300 TL correspond to much less Euro now.
    So, Turkish players paid 300 TL in the past, and they still do so today. For them, the price did not change over these years and for players coming from a country using the Euro the prices did not change as well.

    Kind regards,
    ~NightHawk~
