Is there a point to this option?  Anyone who plays the game regularly knows to switch it to silver, and if they should happen to forget, they get PO'd.  New players who finally discover the option get annoyed that they didn't know about it earlier.  I'd be very surprised if there's any significant revenue generated from this option, and there's definitely some amount of ill-will.

 

Please make a positive change to improve the game experience and just remove the option entirely.  Players who are happier are going to find plenty of ways to spend gold on things that reinforce their good experiences.

I don't spend gold on it, but if others want to, that's their choice.  I'd say leave the option there.  There may be times when new guys, for example, don't have a lot of credits and the ability to buy with gold would appeal to them.

If there is no gold in account, problem solved. New players should learn AP and APCR dynamics first.

     I started last October and switching from gold to silver never crossed the proper synapses between the retina to the gray matter. It wasn't until I made a comment about why I was buying gold that someone informed me to look a little closer. While I did chuckle at myself I certainly didn't get PO'ed about it. There are lots of things about this game (and life in general) that if you don't know and you are in a clan that doesn't know or doesn't care than it's just part of the game until you do know. I never scrolled down to find the forum button for the first two and a half months. I didn't know about WOTBstars for the first three months and a whole month later to be informed about Blitzstars. Another two months to accidentally click to the right of star1 to even realize that page existed. 

     Because my Blitz career started this way I fully understand how there can be people playing that could also not know. If all you do is log on select a tank and yolo every battle then that's all you know. Everything else is meaningless until you do know.

Or at least, be credits, on default. A gold option is fine, but it would be much better if credits was default.

It's purposefully deceptive. It's not readily apparent to new players that you can switch it to credits and they don't tell you this either. This is an anti-consumer practice, which is not surprising from a company like WG.

They should leave the option to buy with gold, but credits should be the default option.

So the game should be configured to force them down the learning path you think is appropriate?

Just because you buy your prammo with silver doesn't mean I should have to...  I show contempt for my enemy by shooting GOLD prammo.  Scrub.

Just say 'NO' to Vanity
