It was bad enough that I had to look at those annoying red circles on my avatar but now they have them on the store icon and you have to scroll thru all kinds of crap to make it go away. Whyyyyy?

To make sure you don’t miss any deals, be happy it is all on one page and just a scroll through … vs ten pages of tabs and ten scrolling actions.

No I won’t be happy when there was nothing wrong with the store before the update

They fixed the red dot problem for the avatars just to add it back to the shop...

You can't just scroll through, you have to wait for the offer to load on your device first AND the red "new" tag has to appear on your screen.

I hear you, dude ... 

Doubtful these things will go away, since they've become pretty much stock standard practice for the industry.  For a few other games, I simply ignore them all. For WOTB, it ain't all that bad.  I was just trying to prove, that in fact, they can be scrolled through, without having to tap around.

If I don’t clear all the red dots before I hit the Battle button, I will lose. 
or my mother will die -one of those. 

Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

The dumb focus on avatars should’ve showed us all how to deal with the dots…

Stores are full of stuff that somebody wants to sell you. I’m not surprised when WG does hat.

 

Having red dots on avatars, now that’s obnoxious.

I never said you had to tap anything. But you have to scroll a bit, then wait for it to load, then scroll a bit more, then wait for it to load... repeat. It took you 25 whole seconds to clear the red dots in your video.

Same here, sorta.
My OCD nature regarding the red avatar dots won’t allow me to ignore them once I’ve seen them. I have to stop whatever and go to them immediately and dispose of them.

These guys get it.

and that's why they put the dots there, because they know a certain percentage of us can't just let them go.

 

Funny, the only dots I don't care about and can let them sit, are the ones on the battle pass.

I don't know why, but I can.

yeah but how does that translate into a benefit for the developers? It’s not like scrolling thru that mess is encouraging people to pay/buy anything. In my case it’s the exact opposite.

You said you had to scroll and wait for things to load, it can be done faster, but you can't flick through it, or it doesn't recognize the item was on screen. I did one continuous scroll through without stopping, slow enough to see what was there, and there was no additional waiting.

It doesn’t matter if users just blindly click past them. If you can get something in front of a users eyes, even for a split second, it benefits. 
 

Google and YouTube’s entire economy runs on this model.
