Honestly I don't think they should give you anything because it isn't their fault that the exchange rate works this way. If they had control over it then I'd completely support you. The only thing Cryptic is guilty of is falling international rules and trying to keep things as fair as possible.
Well $308 is definitely better than $340

You're being charged in the American style: X amount, converted to your currency, and then adding VAT at the end.
See it on all book sale as well.

I got my LTS a few weeks ago. I'm a very happy player indeed right now Even happier had a pet Beaver actually been part of the LTS. Still, i have 3 Chickens, they are trouble enough.

Silly Canadians, and their Monopoly money.

Seriously though, I'm glad to see the quick action of the Devs to get this fixed.
