Beware of steel to coal auto conversion!

I have noticed a few days ago that when you want to buy coal ship and you are short of coal an auto conversion of steel can be applied. 

 

Prior that change the coal needed was shown and you could go and manually convert steel to coal(not if I advise you to do so) 

 

So BEWARE!

nope,

It was always auto exchange,

I've had my musashi months ago, without converting steel manually,

but converting 2700+ steel without asking me..

 

This is WG :)

i can remember when getting salem (4k steel put into it), it stated for confirmation which ressources are taken to buy it. in that case it showed me the full ammount of my coal and the appropiate ammount of steel to make up for the missings.

 

didn't had any "oh sheet" feeling... my hint is: always check what u click :Smile_great:

You might be correct... 

The auto conversion kicks if you have enough steel for the needed coal... Else it looks like this:

Yep

 

If you put an additional 2990 coal on it,

or just a coupon for %25,

you will see the purchase button will be activated..

and It won't ask you "Are you sure" :)

just get your steel out!

Yeah, I started seeing that because I am close to 90k coal now

 

That's very sneaky :Smile_sad:

I don't think they did that on purpose to make us spend our steel.

I think the reason behind this, they didn't think :)

no one I think have ever said,

"Hey guys, may be we need to put a reminder when they are about to spend some steel, since its valuable!" :)

 

They just didn't think about it.

 

They are not WOT team,

They are not evil like them!

They are just gullable!

There should be a big pop window saying:-

 

Attention!! ... You're about to spend additional steel. Do you want to continue?

It literally tells you what you're gonna spend.

I kind of fail to see the problem ?

I don't think anyone said it was a problem, just that it's something for us as players to be aware of.

I think this only really matters because of the value of (and difficulty obtaining) steel; objectively, you do get a box telling you exactly what you are about to spend - it's the same mechanic for anything else available for coal (modules etc.) too.

 

I used a hundred or so so steel when I got my Musashi*; if you take any care at all, you shouldn't really spend steel by accident...

 

I suppose WG could make it a bit clearer (change font colour, or similar, for the steel component), to make it more idiot-proof for anyone prone to not reading stuff on computer screens.

 

 

*I didn't know then that steel would become available more widely, so thought I might as well use the (at that point) useless few hundred I had.
