Really Getting Fed Up With " In Game Currency For Flags" Miraculously Some How Activated To Doubloons

Just came out of a battle in Nagato  only to find the after action report saying I have had to pay Doubloons for flags, considering I always unchecked so I don't have to pay for Flags or camo strange this.

This seems to happen quite a bit most times I catch it before games start.

Not only that despite WG announcing that they would stop " the in game currency default to be checked for doubloons " every time I unlock and buy a ship then precede to put camo"s and flags on said ship then hit enable it always defaults to checked.

There have been a number of posts and threads on this subject and I can remember at least 2 WG Reps replying to this that it would be fixed however it still has not been.

Your real problem seems to be that you're so critically short of doubloon-charged flags and/or camos that you're constantly running out. THAT'S why you're having to pay.

WG says it is because people complain that there are too many clicks required in the game.

Want to leave battle?  Have to click away.

Want to exit the game?  Have to click away.

Want to go through on of the umpteen different events going on?  Have to click away.  Same with campaigns.

Want WG to raid your doubloon stash?  Don't worry, WG will make that easy.

It's not WG's fault if you don't check to see what consumables you have on autopay. It only takes a couple of seconds to do this before a match. Think of this as a learning experience for real life. For instance, most free software that you download will automatically opt in to installment of 2nd-party "deals" such as web browsers, search apps, anti-malware suites, and email subscriptions -- it is incumbent on you to be wary and opt out of these before you click "download.'

The problem is bad human-centered design. If I have an option and select it I should never have to select it again. Deselecting the flag to pay with currency should never be rechecked but it is. No matter how many flags or Type 59 cammo I have I should not have to worry that some patch or new session will change my decision. WG handles this quite well with port filters and other places. They don't choose to do so because it gets them some income. They don't care how irritating it is to the player.

I have never, EVER had a problem with the decision changing on its own from patch to patch. I never had it with premium consumables dubs/credits when that was a thing, and I'm not having it with flags. 

Occasionally I'll fail to take the fancy stuff off when I go into co-op or put it back when I go into Randoms, but that's on me.

I agree with HamAndCheez above, get wows modstation (https://worldofwarships.com/en/content/modstation/) and click the stingy by default option if you don't want to repeat this in the future.

If it can be modded it can be implemented in the client. Why hasn't it? Surely if it affects players pocketbooks it would be a higher priority enhancement. They could have fixed it when they provided us the "demount all" button.

In my opinion? Because WG treats its playerbase as intelligent people who will notice these things and turn them on or off as appropriate. 

Either that or it's been left as is to teach people a lesson that inattention to detail has consequences.

We agree to disagree then. I have a BIG problem with my selections being changed.

Reinstall your client and you will really see persisted settings and feel their impact. You lose your minimap settings, your carousel settings in port, etc. WG can make it easier but they won't.

Again, making it easier for the players should be the goal. WG should not be "teaching lessons" to its players. 

And it absolutely has nothing to do with intelligence - don't get insulting, please.

I did a complete reinstall recently.  It was nothing to come here and complain about.

Good for you! So did I and I accepted having to make those selections again because I chose to do the reinstall. WG chooses to disregard one setting that I and others in this forum have repeatedly asked them to leave alone.

Why have we asked repeatedly? Because we lose doubloons when they revert our selections.

Why do they revert our selections? Because we have to buy doubloons.

Bad design is bad.

More like EZ money.  I'm not on the WG hate train, and don't auto resupply anything other than perma camos, but this is a cheezy mechanic.

Not really related to this but ive noticed my graphic settings resetting between each session and sometimes changing between battles, sometimes drasticly. I can understand the frustration the op has.

 

Complete reinstall did nothing btw.

As a rule, I also enable that feature to prevent this, but I also just spend the doubloons to zero, so I don't have to worry about it.

Well, yeah.

I use the Modstation mod so I don't have to worry about it, but I'm always temporarily out of one signal or another.

It wasn't bad when I was working full time, and only played a few games a day, but with the onset of rainy weather, and me only working 3 days a week, I'm playing a lot more games, and achievements only grant signals once a day.

Heck, I just spent 20k+ coal buying signals, that's unheard of for me.

'Stingy by Default' is also in Aslain's modpack.

I made the 'Stingy by Default' mod by request. Many requests. Actually I was asked to make the WoWS version of 'Gold Lock', an old WoT mod that blocks any and all transactions involving gold. When I looked into it I saw it wasn't necessary: WoWS to WoT is like a petty pickpocket to armed robbery. All I had to do is change some default values in the WoWS client, hence the name of the mod.

A number of players thought WoWS would ban the mod. Instead they approved it and included it in the official modpack in no time. Go figure.

Sorry, no. It follows very logically. He's got a supply-demand imbalance (and possibly an unidentified slow leak) and he's not correcting it in the appropriate manner.

If that's true then WG has never read chat.

"Supply-demand imbalance?"

"It follows very logically"?

Nope, it is pure GREED on WG'ing part, of that I have no doubt.

I mean I would love to give them the benefit of the doubt but there are just SO MANY examples of WG'ing greed its not funny.

Take the premium ship Florida.  The basically create an event that makes it look like the only way to get Florida is through the event.  They release the event and give you a way to buy bundles so you can get Florida on day 1 but doing this costs like almost $90.  They let this situation run for 1/2 a day, long enough for all the whales and pokemon collectors to buy the $90 worth of bundles to get the Florida, since it is "obvious" there is no other way to get it based on what WG has told them or rather "led them to believe".  Then they suddenly out of no where release the Florida in the premium shop for like $45, without any new announcement to let people know it is available outside the event by the way.  

This is how WG'ing operates so why does anyone think the whole preventing yourself from buying singles and camos for dubs is such a difficult challenge.  Honestly there should be an option in settings that specifically says, "Prevent buying consumables for doubloons" that you just have to check mark to prevent it happening ever, but nope. You have to do it on each ship and in each section and heaven help you forget to do it or not realize that a patch changed the setting.
