Perfectly put. I've emailed PW Billing support and as yet they are silent. According to Brandon on twitter its down to the "Euro team" who made a Zen change.

I've just paided out to become a lifetime supporter. this is NOT how I expected to be treated.

The US dollar is rising and the Euro is falling - is this why you think you are getting less Zen or that
Nope, that's not why I 'think' we're getting less.

This is why I 'know' we're getting less.

Our bundles were changed in the last few weeks and now we're getting screwed over. Plus as has been said several times, $50 USD is actually less than 40 Euro, yet we're paying 44.99 Euro, which is closer to $60 USD, but receiving less Zen.

Same here. I'm at 1,850 right now, but I'm going away for the weekend so I'm worried I'll miss the sale.

Oh, well...there's always First Contact Day.

Forwarded a ticket to their support the moment this sale went online, coz I bought the Armitage Heavy Carrier Escort the day before. Nowhere was announced in advance that this sale was going to be held from Wednesday till Sunday, or I would have waited with my purchase. Do you think that I have already received an answer from them. Nada, nothing at all.

You're joking, right? First of all - they don't have to announce anything. Secondly - there will always be somebody who bought a ship one day before the sale. If they announced it - say - on Monday, there would be guys like you who bought a ship on Sunday.

Do as I do - gather Zen, and buy things only when there's a discount. I bought 6 ships since Wednesday.

Whilst I agree with most of your comment, that's a little harsh and inflammatory.

Still then, we have a little saying where I come from : You will always have a "No", a "Yes" can be obtained. Furthermore, I believe that, if Cryptic or PWE was knowing and intending to hold this sale, a little announcement in advance would have been nice. Also, you don't have to believe me, be I am pretty sure that Cryptic or PWE is perfectly able to track down this purchase and it's up to them if they will make a gesture.

PWE does not announce sales in advance. Ever. For any game. There is a reason for this.

Think about it.

If PWE announced "hey, we're gonna have a sale on X ship next week", are you going to buy that ship at that moment or wait for the sale?

Right. You'll wait for the sale. Rather, you'll wait to buy the ZEN to buy the ship until the sale. It's the nature to wait for the bargains--but it's also lost revenue for PWE. If sales were announced in advance, people wouldn't buy ZEN until the sale, and PWE can't operate on what would then amount to a monthly stipend.

No company announces sales in advance, or else no one would buy anything at any time BUT a sale, and companies can't effectively budget that way.

Lagging, D/Cing, or rubberbanding? Here's some help.
