Anyone else buy digital goods using RUB instead of their native currency when possible? It can make a huge difference when the game is not region locked. For instance on the sale I just bought $12 USD worth of skins, originally $20, for 540 RUB or $7.10 US and Paypal took care of the conversion for me.

Thanks for the tip. Frontier will probably notice this soon and patch the loophole. :)

Anyway, I just bought a bunch of skins for ships that I may or may not be flying. Had it not been the sale and RUB discount, I probably wouldn't have bought them.

To close the loophole they would have to region lock the game and put all countries the use the RUB on their own private server. The only thing they could do is remove that purchase option form the site and open a region locked official site for nations that use the RUB, but even then I would just use a VPN to access their Russian site and log in.

They could do a lot of things or they could adjust the prices so they are equal across all markets. Python pirate paint job is 135 RUB, 1.8 GBP, 2.4 EUR, or 3.00 USD. The conversion rates to dollars are 2.50 for the GBP, 2.62 for the EUR, and 1.77 for the RUB. It is just plane stupid that in the age of electronic currency exchange that people in the US have to pay more.
