This is bad design.

 

I had 7 boxes. It does not display "open 5 at a time". (since it appeared when i had 10 earlier today, i assume it starts at 8~10). That's bad design. Takes way too much time.

 

If a player has more than 2 boxes, the 'open-up-to-5-at-a-time option' has to be available!

 

We had this issue last year.

We had this issue the year before.

We have this issue this year.

 

Are you going to repeat it in 2020?

 

Repeating a mistake doesn't make it better. Just let us have the content in a nice tidy manner. Please. ty

They will get right on it after the TS-5 nerf you wanted. You are overworking WG at this rate.

Just wait until you have 20+ before you start opening them...

Of all the things that need fixing - happy for this one to stay bottom of the list...

Because you get decorations which boost your credit income.

You assume this is not intentional on the part of WG

What they are trying to do with most of the UI changes is to make you spend more time clicking around in the game. Particularly if linked to rewards this reinforces addiction

By what, 0.1%?

 

If you are that desperate for credits then there are various packages in the premium shop which will help.

The only time you can expect a credit boost is when you are ~3 decos away from reaching one of the tresholds, and even then you need to miss dome low level decos to reach that with a few boxes...

Depends on what level they are. If they are missing one piece then it wont make a difference. But they probably aren't since they want to open the boxes as soon as they get them.

Premium shop isn't an excuse for poor design.
