Price review for Paraguay

Hi there,

I want to talk about the cost difference for latin america regions for current cost of services, as you know there are several currencies in LatinAmerica, each country has a different one, I want to specifically talk about Paraguay, our currency is PYG (guaranies - ₲), to the date of the creaton of this post, a single US dollar equals 7,039₲.

In Paraguay the base salary by law is mandated at 2.192.839₲ around 300$, for 149 weekly hours of work (6days, 8 hours each one), now in US the base salary is 7.25$ but the work hour requirement are diferent so according to some pages the average salary monthly a is arond 3,300$ monthly that means that the prices for the services of the shop makes really good sense for US players but for a paraguayan players are actually very expensive.

A 30day Gametime purchase is for a average player in the US only 0.45% of their salary but for paraguayan players is around 4.81% of their monthly income and this gets worst when you think about purchasing other services or purchasing expansion just a expansion in the base cost is over 12.83% of their salary but for US player is just 1.21%.

Just to get some perspective, if you want to buy a coke can in the US its 1.19$ but here in Paraguay the price is lowered due our lack of resources to 0.71$, the same with a BigMac Meal in Paraguay a meal its just 3.77$ but for US is 5.99$ if such big companies can ajustments their pricing to accomodate their customer I think Blizzard can do it also and review the prices for the paraguayan people. I wish blizzard makes some price ajustment for paraguay, maybe for each country but i understand this might be a little task intensive.

Why I am making this post?

First of all to pay less, with a Paraguayan salary well above the average its still is very expensive to keep playing WoW, well more than the ratio for a US player and the COVID pandemic is throwing the dollar cost throw the roof make it more and more expensive.

Second, I love this game since Classic and I have a lot of attachment to my account and the stuff inside, I know it might not be impresive but the feels for the account is what keeps me playing, some other friends already saw some price reduction in other regions and create a clean account to start over leaving all their titles, mounts, pets, apparences behind just to be able to play the game. Blizzard has made a lot of progress to be able to keep you stuff no matter the character you are using but this is a problem game developers cannot solve, need to be solved from the pricing configuration.


is really crazy man 15 DOLLARS, i can buy netflix and disney+ for that price, a argentinian pay 50% less, becuase they buy in his native badge, all the rest (chile, perú, etc is the same) we pay in dollar and blizzard not adjust the price, we pay the same that pay a american and we don’t earn the same, i have already seen this discussion in other places, I just hope the retard on duty does not arrive to defend the company, this is indefensible…
