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

Yeah, for some reason Cryptic doesn't include the VAT in the price. Probably so people think it's reasonably cheap and then the tax is sprung afterwards.

ok with 17.5% tax inc it brings it up to 179 which is close to what i was charged, but QE2 member said "But for uk guys i got quoted 153 pounds...thats exactly what I paid." how come i had to pay 180 and another UK member paid 153?

More likely because in the US, it's normal to quote prices without tax as they can vary from state to state.

They probably just don't realise they also got charged VAT.
