I know the title is a bit dramatic, but you can check it out yourself, just google “Beirut explosion”, you might be wondering why I’m creating this thread, it’s not for a unique request, on behalf of the tiny Lebanese player-base, i ask if you would let us have some escapism from this reality for a fair price
for a decently long time before the revolution started, our minimum wage was around 4500LBP(3$)/hr (only counting legal jobs, it even goes way lower in some places and it’s not infrequent), around November people started protesting the government, i won’t go too much into it but it’s the usual, too many corrupted people in power, a month later Covid hit, and a few months later the Beirut explosion happened, and in the meantime we saw the value of the LBP go down, 1USD went from 1500LBP to around 12000LBP, basically our currency went through 8x inflation in the past year (lowering the hourly salary to around $0.5/hr as of writing this),
before this happened 15$ was not so bad, now it’s neigh impossible unless you got someone on the outside willing to help, some banks won’t let us even spend more than 10$ a month on online products, so it’s literally impossible to even pay for it, I am basically begging you to receive our money here, I know it’s possible to pay less for subscription by basically using a vpn to Argentina(which has the same monthly salary as us btw), but i rather go through the legal process,
I wouldn’t bother if i didn’t know that blizzard, unlike other companies actually cares, so is it possible to have the prices for blizzard products, mainly the wow subscription be adjusted to players in Lebanon so that we can get back to enjoying them as we did in the past?
thank you for your time.
