Noticed in a thread or two (including THAT long one about THAT event) that people have sustained various losses due to poor digital control (aka poor fingering). For some it's akin to losing the Midas touch. You are invited to share your worst slips of the finger....

Me, well I've used newly aquired gold to refill my stamina and I've inadvertently sold a level 4 Military Market and a level 2 Ore Mine.....

I was early on in the game, decided to buy some gold. Spent a solid 50 bones on 650 gold.

I decided to wait on spending it... Accidentally rapid tapped 'Finish now' on my vault expansion, ~490 gold down the drain.

My wife just got in from a night out with her mates, so I thought I'd try to share this story - believe it or not, it had her in tears, successfully translating into another language AND hitting the mark with a non-gamer! In short, a classic! On that note, I must take leave once again... have to put my digits to use in another way!

was level 48 for ages to build base and economy/army. decided to sell my german flag of barrels since i noticed no1 could see decorations anyway, after like 20 barrels i was so into it, i tabbed my drydocks and sold it. shocked coz i couldnt even just buy it again coz by the time it was available for lvl 50 only and i had no intention to level up yet.
once more thank you support for restoring the building in less than 48 hours

Mine is just plain boring. I lost 2 gold checking on the status of a build and finished it early. But several times I've come close to accidentally selling a building and buying a gold unit I didn't want.

marebear
04-03-2012, 10:53 AM
Mines boring too. I already whined about losing 20 to an energy accidental press but I got it back plus 20. (thanks funzio!!) and sold a building once by accident and had to buy it again. Nothing too terrible.

Mcdoc
04-03-2012, 08:17 PM
Wait - once again I'm late to the dinner table.

you mean I can seriously buy a grunt for ONLY 17 Gold! Dang - how could I have played this long and not known about that amazing option.

And here I have been wasting all this Gold on crates!

Thunder Child
04-03-2012, 08:22 PM
Not sure knowingly parting with gold for a grunt would give you the same kudos as fat-fingering the said grunt, waking up to discover what you had done, and then asking for (and getting) your money back! Aidan is and will always be a legend for his sordid tale (no pun intended)!

Agent Orange
04-03-2012, 08:27 PM
During that last event I wasted 20 gold on an energy refill but at least that was good for three hits in the Naval Battle and some cases.

For those with pet birds, our Parrotlet Chase has figured out how to turn on my iPad by pecking the button. He then goes about beaking the screen trying to recreate what I do with my fingers. Thankfully his beak is not capacitive. But his feet are! So I have to be careful when he's running around the screen when I'm in MW as he'll trigger sell requests for buildings or if I'm on a rivals base cause me to raid a building.

Mcdoc
04-03-2012, 08:29 PM
Ok, so I was just kidding about WANTING to buy a grunt, but I seriously didn't know that you could.

Made me laugh too!

I once bought more energy by accident - that made me mad enough - so I've learned to slow things down abit - especially when it comes to where I put my fat fingers :)

I also waited for the timer during the titanium / docs events with the intention of a Gold open only to accidentally tap the free open - then having to waste 15 gold to reset the timer again :/

My 3 year old took over my iPad so I deleted all of my stuff off of it and loaded it with kid games and restricted it. The only game I left was my modern war LLP. He decided tonight he wanted to play my game... This does not bode well for me, lol. Good thing he can't buy anything, but I see missing buildings in my future. And this was the best thread ever!! I even made my husband read it. Global... Tee hee

Seriously? I can get my gold back from a mistake?
I dropped my phone while checking my vault and when I picked it up I touched the finish button and spent 350 gold.
I was fairly upset as a was planning on buying some crates.

Aidan
04-17-2012, 02:44 PM
Yeah u can. Email them n state ur case politely. They will check the log n reimbursed ur gold bck. Altho if tht happens like long time ago then it might be a bit difficult. Couldnt hurt trying tho

I think I have the most expensive mistake... I was in a rush to deliver the last hit on an epic boss and I had less then a minute remaining. I was out of gold, and hurried to buy another vault. I ended up with a vault of CASH, instead of gold. I swear I hit gold, but it was 2am, so it could of been my fault. The boss escapes before I can buy gold, so there goes a bunch of hits at $100k each.

Then it gets worse.... I emailed support about the $60m I have, and I have nothing to spend the cash on. I figure they will make it right. When I wake up, the cash is still there, no word from support. So, fearing the loss of cash from attacks, and suport telling me too bad, I decide to spend the the cash upgrading my nano's. First I have to spend 200 gold to finish my current upgrade, then 400 some odd gold to finish the nano upgrade so I can start the second.

In the end, I spent alot of cash to have a number 2 in front of my nanos.....Never heard back from support.

At least I think it's a dude. It has long hair ( pony tail). If its a chick, this just got interesting. Although on my android device he is blond with a crew cut.
