So I started the research on the HH with no officer, since i did not have an officer nor was one given when update was made (at first). I was about 1 hour into research when i reloaded the page and there was a message stating i had an officer. In the hour between my refreshes I dock a fleet of FFs that had 22.5mill + around another 10-15 mill in drac cargo. I decided to cancel the research to apply my new officer to the naval lab, however when my resources were refunded i was given only my Max WH could hold 39.6M of each. The remaining balance around 35million was lost.
This was a standard tactic allowing players to build ships which require more resources then allowed to the WH. It would have been nice to know that i would loose these resources.
Anyways thought it would be nice of me to share this before others suffer from this mistake.
