Our friend Rhonin the wizard calls them tiers so lets just keep it that way.
So what’s it all about? It’s pretty simple, right now if you live in: Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Netherlands, Sweden or Switzerland you’re paying the most in the Steam Store. You’re in Tier 1.
If you’re from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain or the Vatican City you’re paying a little bit less then the previous Tier. You’re in Tier 2.
And finally if you’re from Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania you’re paying the least for the games on Steam. You’re in Tier 3.
Here’s an example:
Team Fortress 2
Tier 1: 19,99€
Tier 2: 14,99€
Tier 3: 11,99€
Note: This conversion involves Valve games only!
United Kingdom is NOT on the list because UK has pounds as their currency, and apparently for Valve UK is not a part of Europe or the European Union.
What do you guys think about it? Is it better now, is it fair at all? Or is it totally wrong? I personally think that right now it’s even worse than it was before, they divided European Union/Europe like some countries are “worse” than others.
