    Why People In NA Were Confused By Ship Building Boosters

    I've already responded to this. Of course it seems to far of a date, but the tool tip is confusing (it looks like it still works) and many people did not realize you could not buy the boosters toward the end, because it was announced after the event started and poorly communicated - just a little blurb in a post, instead of a post of it's own, a pop-up message on the screen and the tool tip being poorly designed. I mentioned the CC's because many people were unaware, which proves my point that a critical change to the event was poorly communicated. Please read through the entire post before you respond. Getting tired of repeating myself and filling in simple logical gaps.

    That is obviously not the point. The point is many people missed it since Wargaming slid it in after the event started and people who read the original post thought most of the information was just a repeat of information they'd already read on discord , the forum or in a previous Wargaming post (which Wargaming does all the time), and missed it. If the CC's, who know far more about the game than the average player didn't know, than a lot players missed it, including myself. I thought it only applied to people who hadn't bought the 1st booster by a certain date since the tool tip made it look like I could buy the second one. It also made no logical sense that you couldn't buy the boosters at the end to finish up the event if you got close, except to Wargaming who wanted to force people to pay 15,000 doubloons when it would have only cost them half as much to finish with the boosters. Wargaming keeps doing this kind of crappy stuff because of white knights like you.

    Actually, the format used by Europe is not used by the rest of the world either. Check Wiki. You are misinformed.

    Because day is the smallest number to the largest which makes logical sense. As an American the Metric system make more logical sense than the inches and feet, and our way of writing dates is better. 2/22/2020 is more logical and pleasing to the eye than 22/2/2020. One follows a logical ascending pattern of size increments most of the time, the other does not.

    You mean like some of the CC's. I listen to a couple of Twitch streams and they didn't know either and I can pretty much guarantee they know more about the game than you do.

    Read the posts. There's more to it than that.

    I wasn't either, but I bought the 1st booster believing if I got close I could buy the second one, which is actually what happened to me. The tool tip just reinforced this belief and when I got the doubloons and tried to buy the second booster, I was very surprised I couldn't. I will say this. People will never have the same level of trust for Wargaming as they did a few months ago. Everything they say will be suspect and every time somebody sees a Puerto Rico they will be reminded that Wargaming is an unethical company and they will tell everyone who has an interest in the game the same thing.

    Ahh, the old buyer beware. Caveat emptor! Of course if something is misrepresented, which the Puerto Rico event clearly was, the company is considered at fault, not the consumer. In cases of ambiguity, the law falls on the side of the consumer. It is the businesses responsibility to make the terms of the contract clear and unambiguous. That is why there are pages of disclosure on even simple contracts.

    I read the notes pretty much every time, but many of them are just repeats of what they posted earlier. Ads for the same stuff and when 95% of the article is exactly the same as the article you read two times before, it's really easy to miss a single line of text telling you when the boosters would no longer be available. Wargaming has the ability to put in a message that pops up when you log in if they want to. Such a message would have made it very clear to everyone, but I believe they were intentionally vague and also why the refund time frame was so short. They want the money.

    If that's the case, why were so many people caught off guard when they couldn't buy the boosters after a certain date? It is because the booster tool tips appears to work. That is just poor interface design and having worked for a Fortune 50 overseeing a suite of applications, I know poor design when I see it.We would have credited back any customer who requested it to avoid a lawsuit that we had a very good chance of losing. All you need is 51%.

    It made the paid boosters confusing because it appeared I could have bought them. They should have had the correct date and been grayed out or otherwise coded to show they could not be purchased. Look at the image I posted. If you showed that to almost anybody they would believe you could still buy the booster. Not to mention the fact you couldn't buy the boosters after a certain date was not in the initial communication about the event and a lot of people were caught by surprise when it occurred.

    It is on all legal forms, banking sites, checks, credit card statements, phone bills, power bills, etc. I have no doubt if you showed that tool tip the vast majority of people in the US who are not coders, they would think it was June as well.
  14. KristopherKringle

    Why People In NA Were Confused By Ship Building Boosters

    Yes, but that plus the fact the tool tip lit up and told you how many doubloons made it seem you could still buy them. I'm not the only one I'm sure who got confused. DD/MM/YY is the correct format for the US. It is easy to look up.

    That may be true for the military, but not for the majority of people in the US. All legal contracts, checks, bank statements, etc. are in the DD/MM/YY format. It may have been used since beta, but it is still not correct for the US. I know when we had things done for the EU market, we changed the dates so there would not be any confusion.
