Hello, I have noticed that on the details screen I am  being charged 75k silver for consumables,ok but the problem is when  they are on sale  I stock up on them so i have them in my depot.

I run small med and repair and food.Which I have loads of in depot,but WG deduct 75k silver :(

 

This happens intermittently,its not regular but very annoying.As I am cheap and don't like being robbed . Does anyone else have this problem?

Do you use camo?

Well they somewhat are... as that paint surely shouldn't be fading in only 100 battles :trollface:

OP: "My things are being taken and I dunno why! I'm probably being robbed! I'm too lazy to take a minute or two of my time to look through everything and figure it out myself before whining on the forums and putting the blame on the first thing that comes to mind!"

 

If this offends you, my apologies but today's WoT gameplay session made me nearly break my own hand from raging at the stupidity of my teammates who were teamkilling me and flaming me in almost every match today. I am extremely edgy right now.

And you have to enable auto rebuy.

To be fair, as it only happens in 1% of all battles or less it can be kinda surprising to see a 75k bill, esp. as "consumables" generally don't include camo for most people.

No but after so much scratching, the metal's shining through!... or something.

 

It also occurred to me that at 750 credits per battle, rent-a-camo is pretty cost-effective.

At least he bothered to come here to the forums to question, and though with a less apropriate title, recognized and apologized for his mistake.

 

Not a lot of players would do so. Or humans for that matter.

I'm still amazed we get topics like this. As the automatic renewal of the rental camo is... off by default when you do buy it. Tho that said, it should ofc be marked as such in the after battle report vs a consumable.

Aye, should be marked more clearly in the after battle report that it is for camo. Seen this topic pop up way too much & it tends to be the camo renewal.

That's what I thought at least, now I'm just not that sure because now we have the ability to switch camos freely and we only need to use camo on the hull (meaning three camos per tank is all that is needed). Using camo we own costs nothing as opposed to 750 credits per battle. So, I'm not quite that sure how good a deal those rental presets are. Of course, if you don't have enough camos in depot and don't want to spend gold, then 750 per battle is not such a bad deal.

 

Are there certain types of camos that still get permanently attached to the tank you use them on?

Only camo on the hull is really ugly in most cases, sadly.

 

But yeah I try to curb my goldspending, 'cause the only way to get more gold for me is to buy it, and I have other things I'd like to spend money on instead.
