The tax rates went back up to 17.5% this year (they were reduced to 15% last year temporarily).

Sorry to hear you weren't anticipating this additional cost on top of the charge advertised. It was somewhere in the small print and Cryptic don't really have a choice about applying it. Hope it hasn't caused you too much financial distress.
there you go, raised VAT plus a conversion fee of a few dollars and you have your answer.

and yeah the VAT charge is happening to all game company subscriptions, just look on google for "VAT tax game subscriptions" it is the EU laws not the game companies that choose to charge the VAT
