RimWorld

Turkey price hike
Hello, a few days ago, you announced that the game will increase in Turkey on November 17, and many people have adjusted themselves to that date. But the game increased in price early on for your valid reasons. Me and many others could not buy the game at the previous price because we did not see the scam announcement. Can you bring the price back down for a while? Or, can you make a discount at a rate that will fall back to the old price on discount days?

Merhaba, birkaç gün önce 17 kasımda oyunun Türkiyede zam olacağı haberini vermiştiniz ve birçok kişi kendini o tarihe göre ayarladı. Fakat oyun sizin geçerli sebeplerinizle erken zamlandı. Ben ve birçok kişi dolandırıcılık duyurusunu görmediğimiz için önceki fiyatta oyunu satın alamadık. Bir süreliğine fiyatı tekrar eski haline indirebilir misiniz? Veya indirim günlerinde tekrar eski fiyata düşecek oranda indirim yapabilir misiniz?

I think this is unlikely to happen, as the original issue would simply repeat. The number of people who were planning to buy Rimworld during the short period the price was raised early is likely to be so small as to be irrelevant. Adjusting things for them is probably not feasible.

It's unfortunate, but bad actors mean sometimes we can't have nice things.

doların ben ta
Kesinlikle bir düzenleme yapılmalı.Duyuruda bazı ülkeler denmiş ancak hangi ülkeler olduğu belirtilmemiş.Eksik bir duyuru ile bir anda fiyatta artışa gidilmesini doğru bulmuyorum.İnsanlar kendilerini 17 kasıma göre ayarladılar.Umarım geliştiriciler bunu dikkate alır
The price was way too low in Turkey so they adjusted it . If you didn't get it while it was low, that was on you.

When you convert the price of the game to dollars, it is cheap for you. But in Turkey, 250 lira is too much for a Turkish person. We are going through a difficult time. You can show some understanding.

The problem is that people were tricking steam into thinking they were from these regions to get major discounts, because of this, your price gets hiked closer to a normal price tag instead of the major discounts you were being given before(this isn't just for Turkey it goes for every nation that was being given major discounts), they announced the price change would be happening earlier then suggested by steam as well, so you can expect these changes to happen across steam in relatively short order.

They said before on November 17th and I acted according to this announcement. Because if they said November 17th, I thought that they would not change the price before this date and I did not look at the other announcements. It's normal for me to think like that. How would I know it would be a scam? I don't want them to reinstate the price. I just want them to give a discount of at least 70-75% on sale days. That's the old price. There are lots of victims of this situation on Turkish forums.

Read what Astasia Posted. There is a reason Tynan did it early, as explained by Uni, and a pretty good one from a business stand point. It's unfortunate, it really is, but apparently we can't have nice things without bad actors coming in and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ it up for everyone else. Also, No matter what, there will NEVER be a sale over 10 percent. Ever. It's due to Tynan's philosophy towards sales after his kickstarter campaign all those years ago.

I rushed to gobble up my wishlist, including Rimworld, as soon as the announcement from Valve dropped. I can totally understand last-minute shopping... but it's on you to jump onto the departing train. Tynan was courteous enough to give you forewarning, which I personally wouldn't have ever done.

There's nothing to substantiate that claim, much like there was nothing to substantiate the claim that "there will NEVER be a sale" that were thrown around before the 10% discounts started. All Tynan has said on the matter is "I don't like the idea of deep discounts on games still in active development" and "there will not be any deep discounts on the game for the foreseeable future", and that statement was made quite a while ago. While I don't believe we'll see discounts to the tune of 50%+ until development of this game has completely stopped, which hopefully will be many years from now, I do find the notion of denying the possibility on behalf of a developer who has said no such thing... well, a bit ridiculous.

I fully support this issue. There are many people who will buy if there is a discount to match the old price. The current prices are really high, no one can buy games at these prices. I hope they do something about it.

Rimworld is a 40USD game, whatre you on about?
Theres two camps on this issue. On the oneside it is incredibly unfair to have "prices for thee not for me" stuff going on.
On the other hand, regional pricing makes sense for physical products.

you were paying a 1/10th for the game, now you pay 1/2. can you show some understanding to people like me who pay the full price? you realize that without people like me, the game would never have been made in the first place, right? I don't see threads on here from people in Turkey saying thank you Westerners for paying full price so that we can play the game at 1/10th price. Show some respect.
