Some changes to the Buy Prestige page!
INGAME GOLD OPTION ADDED
We've added clarity to this page, making it clear that Prestige can be bought with ingame gold, and displaying the current lowest price set by you and your traders at Centrum. Centrum was chosen as it's the only market that all players have access to by default.
MULTIPLE CURRENCY SUPPORT
We've also added some Prestige options to pay in a variety of different currencies; pricing is now available in USD and EUR (as well as GBP) via a dropdown menu on the left hand side of the page.
We don't want to be any responsible for the spot exchange rate anymore, and know that many of our players would prefer a fixed price in their home currency. If you prefer, you can continue to buy Prestige in GBP even if it's not your home currency; but do please note that you'll be then continue to be subject (as before) to the often amazing post-Brexit fluctuations in the Exchange rate as applied by our payment service providers.
Between GBP, EUR and USD, we now cover nearly three quarters of our playerbase with an (optional) fixed price.
When you visit the page, we'll default to what we guesstimate is your preferred currency between the three choices. If you change this currency on the drop-down, the page should remember your change when you come back.
STEAM PURCHASE DISCOUNT
We originally posted, erroneously, that Steam app purchasers would get 500 prestige for their purchase; this should have been 200 Prestige, and has now been corrected in our posts and on the Steam store - apologies for this SNAFU; luckily we hadn't gone live!
We've had some questions about the Steam discount. There are a few things it might be helpful to make clear:
There have been some questions about us changing the pricing of Prestige with our new distribution mechanisms going live.
It's something that we're considering due to the cut that some of these distribution mechanisms take on in-app purchases.
However, I'd like to take this opportunity to make it clear that we're *not* changing the current PayPal price, and that *anyone* can log in to their account via the website and use PayPal to buy Prestige, regardless of the distribution mechanism (Web/Windows Store/Steam/etc) that they use to play the game.
I hope this brings some clarity to the Prestige process. We are, as ever, dedicated to making sure that Illy remains genuinely free-to-play.
