That is why Britain isn't known Great Britain anymore. It's Rip Off Britain...the country is a fkin joke! Believe it or not, I buy my films on Amazon US than I do in the UK because I refuse to pay for vat crap.

The only thing I won't be able to buy and get away with VAT is the PS4. I'll be charged with the vat once it's in the UK.

How come films from US don't get charged vat when it comes to the UK to my address from Amazon?

Sorry to be off topic here.

This is sorry to say also an answer that is worthless to the OP.

Gold subscriptions are charged in:
- US Dollars
- Canadian Dollars
- British Pounds
- EU euro's
- Danish currency

Then why can this player not be charged for the Legacy Pack in British Pounds?
Cryptic and/or Perfect World are just lazy in setting up the normal international payment methods also used for Gold Subscriptions.
Don't blame VAT for this.

But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Funny enough, My visa debit card was and still has been declined when I pay directly to cryptic. My bank said they block it for my safety...pfft! Yeah right! They are making us pay for this by Paypal or Skrill in euros.... so no matter how we pay for it, we still being forced to pay in euros.

UK is basically saying shut up and slapped you silly with the vat crap.

the topic that was merged here had nothing to do with the fact that Legacy Pack is on Pre-Order... More the lack of payment methods, that is a problem and seperate.

Unless of course you use PayPal (or one of the other 4 options, not including Skrill themselves) which is paid directly to Perfect World. As the email notification usually states Perfect World B.V they're likely based in Holland, probably the reason for the charge in Euro's rather than Sterling.

ETA: Although some of the options go through Skrill there are still two other options that have nothing to do with Skrill.
