Why have you request Steam removed the A-10C Tank killer upgrade?


Recommended Posts

People were (understandably) exploiting the Steam Lunar Sale to buy the original A-10C for $20 and then the upgrade for $10 versus the full asking price for the standalone A-10C II ($80 or $56 in the sale).

Has nothing to do with people exploiting sales. If it was available just recently like that, it was an error and ED corrected it. On the ED store you only have been able to buy the upgrade prior to the release of the upgrade for 10 bucks and then for 20 bucks for the first month after release, after that you had to get the complete pack no matter what. It never was listed separately there either. You just paid the lower price and the shop recognized if you had the original A-10C already or not and changed the price accordingly.

Yep. I know. We're talking about Steam, though.

 

It's all immaterial, though, as this thread won't live long. 😃

I believe they are different modules

They are different modules, but the Tank Killer module contains both aircraft, whereas the old Warthog module does not. ED has failed to communicate this clearly since the release of the Tank Killer module.

It looks like the upgrade period has completely been revoked without much of a heads-up. (Link to original upgrade details)

 

This definitely leaves a bad taste for sure when I had a few other modules in my cart yesterday to check out this morning. At least leave the upgrade option for the prior buyers during the Lunar Sale.

 

Edit: To add salt to the wound, the DCS Store has a promo price that is double the price of previous Steam upgrade, though not compatible on Steam.

I upgraded my A-10C II back on September 2020 ... at US$ 10 was a steal and I purchased it right away even if I was not flying the A-10C at the time ... why a bad taste?  is it ED's fault that you decided to wait before upgrading?  or you really tought that the special offer would last for ever?  ... on my case, I'm really satisfied with the very low price that ED gave to their existing users, no bad taste at all 🙂

I did the same thing. Bought it at $10 when it released. I figured it was better than paying $80

Hi all

 

an update on this, the upgrade was removed from steam instead of adjusting the price. 

Steam will be returning the upgrade option soon.

 

thank you

Thanks for the transparency, and FYI it's once again live on the Steam marketplace.

Time to get my brrrrt on v2.0 :robot:
