Buying a portrait inexplicably equips it

Platform, device version and operating system:
Windows 7 x64

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
I bought the Doom Glaive portrait with Gems. I expected it to be added to my collection of portraits and NOTHING ELSE. Instead, the game decided to change my portrait to the one I had just bought. Luckily, I remembered which portrait I choose to use, but it still took a lot of scrolling to find it (because the GUI design is unsuitable).

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
First time I bought a portrait = first time it happened.


Confirmed. It’s annoying at most. After buying, you should just own it, it should not be automatically equipped.

Thanks for confirming.

Feels like sloppy development, I’m afraid.

As I noted, it does take more than “a few” seconds, and it’s easy to forget what you were using.

Plus, I use Chat Lite (until Full Chat is fixed to show more lines at a time), so I had no idea my portrait had changed.

Now that I know the bug is there, I’ve made a point of memorising where my portrait is, but it’s still a bug. Or at the very least, it’s an unexpected behaviour.

@Maxx - Keep in mind that bugs, unexpected behaviours, confusing functionality and annoying sequences of clicks (etc) all serve to push people away from a game – and it is cumulative.
