I was confused where thousands of my coins had disappeared to when I had not purchased anything.
This was until I realised after contacting scopely that I was being charged coins for food resources which only an idiot would buy.
The real reason I was losing coins was from through the new level up system which allows you to choose between using gear tokens, coins or using food resources in your inventory.
If the food bags you open through this option does not cover the food required to level up, the game automatically charges you coins when you back out and doesn’t give you the option to use gear tokens.
Now scopely is refusing to take any responsibility for charging me coins without me choosing that option. So if anyone has opened their food bags from within the new level up menu you may have been charged coins for it.
