This one here:

The icon that normally indicates there is something waiting for you, usually the recruitment station or a daily crate.

But now the PR in the dockyard icon is doing the same thing. And I really liked this icon as it indicated something useful to me.

But this here is just annoying as there doesn't appear to be any way to, well, click it away or something. And I sure as hell am not gonna let wargaming annoy me into spending 25k doubloons to purchase this thing.

 

But really, if this is some kind of psychological trick to try and coherse me into spending 25k doubloons for a ship I already decided was not worth it to me by using a port ui component which is usually used for a different purpose (some kind of "good news" conditioning, or whatever), then in my opinion this is really starting to move into pathetic territory. Because I already been in the dockyard and claimed everything that I had waiting for me.

or is there some way to disable this here now? Perhaps I missed something?

I'm sure it is a visual hint that we can still buy the PR, and I completely agree it's annoying if I wanted it I could buy it, the fact I have not is a conscious choice by me.

I am on a loss here, as this ship is only regarding a dockyard so it can be misleading?

There is no progress in there for quite some time.

You just do not go into dockyard because there is no changes in there.

How complicated it can be?

 

I should pay more attention to the port GUI, I forgot this ship symbol exist.

I find it annoying too. The animated icon is just there to keep baiting you. WG, I've known I could get the ship for 15k dubs for quite some time now, if I was going to I would have by now.

You're missing the obvious scumbag part that became part of their business strategy :cap_like:

Is it 'find something trivial and whine on the forum about it' day? :Smile_facepalm:

Its not trivial though. I agree with OP and came looking here for this kind of topic. 

You want icons to be useful in the port indicating there is something new there for you. Abusing this useful UI system to keep bugging us about a stupidly overpriced tier X I have no interest in is something worth mentioning. If it would go away after looking there one time to see nothing new has happened fine, but it doesnt.

Must admit I got a little excited thinking WG had done the right thing and rewarded everyone with the PR. Then I remember it's WG we're talking about and the only PR they specialise in is the bad variety. I agree with you, it's irritating and misleading.

The only way to disable this icon is to uninstall. And from my experience of reinstalling this game 3-4 times I must praise Wargaming (:Smile_ohmy:), it works fast and flawlessly. You can dismiss the following survey by clicking the 'X' if you don't feel comfortable to disclose what flavour of porn you prefer.

Tbh, in here is also some part that is open to interpretation.

Don't get me wrong, I don't fully disagree with you on this seeing how things went ever since the NTC saw the light of day. I choose to not see it in an overly negative way and prefer to see how the current situation can benefit me.

 

BUT!

 

One might go totally view this from the other side and see this (I quote you here) "obvious scumbag part" as just another form of creep (just like powercreep is a form of creep here), as this seems to be creeping into the game for a little while now.

The thing is, I can't even buy it with the doubloons I have right now :Smile_hiding:

+1 It's a damned nuisance. I would be (relatively) mellow about it if, after the first view of the port, it changed to something that didn't indicate 'newness'.

 

Look WG, my IQ is (barely) above that of a concussed garden snail - permanently having an 'ooo, look new and shiny' icon isn't going to make even me waste money on PR...

Yeah, this has been getting on my tits as well. It'd be one thing if it went away after you'd clicked it once, but as it is it's just an irritating distracting element in the UI that you can't get rid of.
