Well, I hate to be fair to WG... But you can't really blame them for trying to make money. Just close the add when you log in.

He probably means the adds that started popping up after battles. I have to say those go a bit too far IMHO.

Well that's odd. I haven't seen any of those.

I'm sure there will be an adblock mod at some point. 

 

 

Tho it's basically the old bulletin window no one checked before. I get they do this with update notes etc explaining what's new, or for big events. As that's what I've seen it do in the last few days. But tank specials? No not really. Still, it's in the corner, and not in your face so you can't do anything until you click it away. 

 

Then again you kinda get why too. As we do see topics about people asking about when a tank will be sold again more or less daily. Well now they will know.

As ads go they are quite unobtrusive.

Yeah they're not super annoying, but it's a bit silly. The whole "great game you had there how about you reward yourself with this offer" thing is a bit much imho. I don't mind the normal popup at the start of the game, but the extra "notifications" are a bit overdoing it.

 

To clarify, I'm taking about the ones that started popping up as a notification on the left bottom above the friends list.

Keep in mind that if you kill that that file runs more then to show "ads" and the store content. It's also used for the CW page etc. So if you play that, it won't work. As was proven in the first attempts to disable it when ppl got a security warning on it here earlier.

Yeah, as I said earlier... at least they are not in your face so you can't click on anything until it goes away. You can ignore it just fine. But it did pop up again today. But to show Stronghold changes, not to sell anything. It's nice ofc for those that want that info. But having an option to turn it off. Or to filter what you wanted to see. As in show update notes, but not store deals etc would ofc not be the worst option still.

Ads in a free game...

 

Why does this surprise you? :D Have you never used any free app on your phone, for example?

You seam to forget Wargaming is a business, business can not survive if they do not sell there products, they let you play the game of r free so they have to make money somehow.
