Post mission reward crates (gold grab)

I was excited to play the new story missions. After 2 missions I've mistakenly hit 25 gold to open 3 extra crates both times. Sure it's on me to be more vigilant but after years of playing, it's an automatic reaction to tap that same spot where watch video used to be. Reversing that is a sneaky move on NG's part. If I already wasted 50 gold, imagine how many other players have done the same thing.

    One of my guildmates just confirmed they've done the same thing twice. Big intentional gold grab from NG. Guess what? I refuse to make any in game purchases and support underhanded tactics like this.

    On the other hand, once you're used to it it'll mean you actually make the mistake less - as you won't get the issue where you run out of adverts and the gold appears in the same spot.

    I'd give them a bit of credit on this. Short term pain, but long term improvement.

    Yes but why reverse the order from where it's ALWAYS been? You'd be a fool to think that wasn't intentional. You give them credit for putting the 25 gold option where they should've put use free unlocks?

    I haven't made that mistake and don't expect to. Just takes a second to stop and check.
    As much as NG is a company I don't think they have an evil / maniacal plan to siphon our pockets every given chance.

    It's no "theory" rather than a fact that they reversed the order on purpose. Out of the thousands of players, I'm sure many people have made the mistake at least once. That's adds up to a lot of gold.

    Playing the first missions of the day, you assume the extra unlocks would be at the top left where it's always been. It's a completely deceitful tactic. Do you honestly think they didn't have this in mind by reversing the order?

    Their priority was to put the gold option first when they SHOULD HAVE put the extra unlocks option first. Of course that was their plan because that was the way they implemented it!

    Bet the upgrade trait button didn’t get moved. 🤣

    The new order makes more sense. The gold option moved between the bottom and top location depending on if you had ads available. Having the gold button be consistently in the same location makes more sense from a UI perspective, in a few days it will be a non-issue.

    I haven't even played a mission to check yet.

    I'm being reprogrammed by Sky-net to not care anymore LOL

    There's a big orange star that says 'FREE' on the free unlock button, too many conspiracy theorists on here.

    How much has the gold spending increased? Gonna tell us that? I'm sure it's a massive amount. And for the final time, you don't switch around something that has been there forever. It's a reaction after thousands of missions to tap the top option. Bye NG and bye NML. Eat a dick

    My throatpunching hand sensed a situation. This is quite the tantrum and public display going on in this thread and probably regretted when emotions are stable. A discussion can be heated and still respectful.

    Well that escalated quickly. I made the same mistake last night moving fast. Guess what? I never clicked it by accident again after 100+ missions already. Ever heard the expression “Live and Learn”? It’s not that serious @psychwolf and to be honest 25 gold isn’t jack to many players if they learn a valuable lesson in the process.

    I'm sure it was all tongue in cheek though.
