WG steels doubloons from you through enabling the resupply button for flags by default without you noticing it. It happened to me as well and I was really pissed off.

If you do not look at your screen, stuff like that happens.

Sure, being cautious can help you avoid such situations - doesn't change the fact that an option that auto-drains your real money (in the form of doubolons that can sometimes be achieved as special rewards but normally aren't earned in-game) should NEVER be the default. And yet when you enable auto-resupply on signals, the option that resupplies for doubloons also makes an appearance. This is NOT ok - and I say it from the position of someone who never got "caught" with this.

 

Spending doubloons should ALWAYS be an active decision (enabling this very option) rather than a passive one (failing to disable it).

 

Btw...

@MrConway, what's the WG's statement on the fact that options to drain your doubloons get enabled automatically along with auto-resupply? I'm pretty sure it's not really what WG wants - people spending doubloons might mean money, but people who lose these accidentally and feel tricked into spending them don't sound like someone who's going to happily spend much money in the future... I'm pretty sure this doesn't really calculate well for WG long-term.

If you choose to auto-resupply something only purchasable using doubloons, that's pretty self-apparent. Wouldn't you say?

The resupply notification says "Use in-game currency" which makes me wonder why WG didn't say "Use Doubloons" instead?! Also "In-game Currency" might be interpreted to the silver coins.

I wouldn't. Usually you have a stock of things to use - the default behavior should be to resupply from that stock only and then stop. Automatically buying stuff that you've run out of of course convenient - but that option should require player to manually enable it.

It's the same text as the option for consumables. I don't know if they ever plan on using something other than doubloons to buy signals in-game, but it makes sense to have that option open for the future.

Agree, at least they have changed the default on Premium consumables to silver first, so they can bow to pressure.

Yes, and some people might think the stuff is resuplied anytime you spend in game currency (or in your example, use Doubloons) for some other stuff. But that is not WG fault. Some people are just "special".

So you have 5 Kraken flags right, you need 50+ xp to make the grind faster , u play 5 games in 2 weeks on that ship , you forget that you mounted the flag 2 weeks earlier.. next thing u see -8 doubloons. 

 

Or do you like to untick the resupply automatically, and have re-pick the signals you want every dam time ?  unless you have enough of them that is.

 

If you like to repick the signals every time , then i think you are special.

You activate resupply and deactivate buying them with ingame currency....

 

If you do not have a supply of them, do not buy them with Doubloons. They are just too expensive that way.

I'll pass on the feedback - it is certainly not our intention to make anyone spend doubloons unintentionally.

The recent change to the default currency for premium consumables was very welcome, if this option for flags was defaulted to OFF with a warning if you turn it on then I'm sure it would be a popular move.
