Does it look like I need any free avatars that only last for a short time?:playing:

 

Look at how many premium and permanent avatars I have in the screenshot.:izmena:

 

Yes, this is not a huge issue and it's only a minor annoyance, but it's still an annoyance. Every time you get a free avatar, you have that red dot that you have to go click on to remove it, even if you have zero intentions of ever using the free avatar. I just had 5 red dots in my game for free avatars that I will never use.

 

I must remove all red dots from my garage. Red dots are not allowed to exist in my garage. I have no choice, because red dots annoy me. I must kill them all and remove them from my garage.

 

It would sure be nice to have a simple option to opt out of getting any free avatars, and this way, players that don't want or need them wouldn't have to go constantly eliminating red dots in their garage. 

 

Players should be killing red tanks in the game, not spending time on eliminating red dots in the garage whenever they show up, and they do show up often.:justwait:

Sadly it looks like the industry standard ... 

 

Highly annoying to jump through 4-6 popups, and many different screens and sub-screens, highlighting every new trinket, in some of the most popular online games.

It must be hard for you to shop at Target.

 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

It's almost like a game within a game.:izmena:

 

I wonder if players are going to get stats for the garage game soon?

 

Some players might only be 40% in the game itself, but they'll be able to boast that they are 65% at playing the garage game.:justwait:

I've only been to Target a handful of times in my life, so it doesn't present a huge problem for me.:playing:

 

But, I will admit, I chuckled at your reply. Good one!:justwait:

The correct terminology is "clearing red dots". Similar to "clearing" red tanks in battle. So for example "I rushed into that window and cleared all the reds". "My stats show I clear 1.5 reds per garage window in past 30 days".

I am super annoyed by all avatars in general and wish they would go away.

This is a lot of writing about a little red dot. I guess I’m just better at ignoring stuff.....

I got used to the red dots. However, the red numbers we get in the new interface drive me bonkers. I'd settle for disabling notifications for avatars. I don't need to know every time I get another 3 day doohickey.

I would pay gold to turn off free avatar pop ups and red dots and more gold to install just one avatar that said AVATARS SUCK

Yea the red dots accumulating will bring the OCD we never knew we had in anybody. I'm sure WG will sell crates soon to remove the red dots, 5% drop rates. :hiding:

Do we really want the developers working on this when they could be out making matchmaking worse or improving the alpha and pen of missiles? 
 

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

Hi, Im BAR_001 and I am OCD. Yes, the bloody dots annoy me, as does shopping at Target. But I find it particularly disturbing to learn that there is actually a "proper terminology" for the removal of said annoying dots.

I would like to see the removal of dots as well...  FYI you can convert avatars to splinters so yo have less. The splinters let you "buy" more "valuable" avatars. I just convert them and forget about it.
