Just send a ticket how I managed to lose over 10k doubloons and just found the answer. It's the Italian cruiser containers. I spared italian tokens to exchange for the containers. But turns out the containers are only obtainable with doubloons instead of the token points. So DON'T pick them. Your token points will be just the same and your doubloons will be deducted!!! If you select the containers there is no way to chose for the points!!!!! I discovered I lost nearly 10K doubloons over this...

As far as I can see, it says quite clearly that they cost dubloons. 

Why anyone would want to spend dubloons on crates is another question I do not understand..

Er.. matey, those are the Premium containers. Clearly they cost doubloons, but they give you bonus Italian Tokens (and that's what they're promoting).

The prize for items in the armory is always listed in the lower left corner.

Everything else is decorative or informative. So the tokens you see on those premium container are only there to tell you that you gain this many of them for your purchase.

 

Why should a premium container even be less expensive then the normal ones? What made you think that this might be possible with Wargaming (or any other company)?

If you're not used to it, it could look like they cost tokens.... you know, if you turn your head a bit to the right, tilt it to the left and squint left eye a bit...

Funny. I was looking at the pics this morning thinking it might not be the best idea to include tokens and gold amounts in one and the same pic. Someone might confuse their meaning....

And that's why you should never make armory purchases while any of the following: Short on sleep, angry, impatient, or drunk.

If you not opened boxes, there is a high chance that you will get back doubloons. If opened - too late.

WG sure loves people like you. With 12k battles under your belt you should know the little tricks WG uses to part the unwary from their doubloons and money.

Twelve. Thousand. Battles. Over Four. Years.

 

Just a quick question... How many containers did you buy? Over 10k probably means 12.500 doubloons?  10 (premium) containers then?

 

How were you planning to buy 10 Italian containers if you have only 171 tokens and one (regular) Italian container costs 70 tokens?

To be fair, I got bamboozled as well and thought "Hey, 22 Containers for 1100 tokens or 24k gold". Took me a moment to realize.

True words

The last one surprised me next morning...suddenly a wild Atlanta has appeared in my Port. But it clearly wasn't me who purchased it. They should charge Jack Daniels the costs.

Sorry, but if there is a doubloon price right above the button that you click, it is not "misleading" anymore.
