Haven't I already used enough money to your game? Stop pushing all the time more sales. Annoying and spoils the fun of gaming.

The stupidest thing about these ads are deals to vehicles you already possess.

Has some youtuber done a video complaining about these? We only usually see so many complaints about a minor feature when someone "famous" has told people what they should be thinking.

Would be fair to put an option to switch off for premium users. I'm F2P and I accept ads to 'pay'. Same thing on spotify for example.

The difference here is that the pop-ups are for WG, not for them to make money from other sources. At least these "ads" are about offers that are part of the game and links to news items about the game, such as new patches. Clearly from some other threads, players are so uninterested in them they just close them and later on open, or in some cases, reopen threads asking about the very changes WG provide a link to.

Or rather that people should complain about something totally inconsequential as if it is a personal affront which cannot be ignored.

I hardly even notice them. It kinda goes with the free to play. I think there's ads in every game that has a store included.

Sometimes the small things make the difference, dont think like a comunist, i done mind the ads but the way you think its not right, people should be pushed to think and to think for themselves, tho i agree with you that there are people that are just told what to think.

I think that certain type of people have issues with these ad in-game pop-ups. Dunno if it's a certain mentality or a mental condition, but I've heard similar complaints within the clan and other people I play with. When we dig into it, these people exhibit similar behaviour: anything standing out (including numbers that appear on certain menu items in-game), flashy, animation (including garage animations and camera rotating) irritates them for no reasons they can explain, their mind is easy to distract (also in the match), they have an urge to click on the ad (to at least do away with it), etc.

Or maybe they feel they have already spent enough money and do not want ads begging them to spend more money constantly on their screens?

Would you like to buy a Löwe with that? and a Pershing maybe? Or could I perhaps tempt you with our finest FV4202?

I have found them annoying and complained them right when they were introduced, it's just the way they are implemented that pisses off a lot of people. I'm pretty there's a mod blocking them tho at this point.

First, they are not constantly on their screen. Second, it is just a picture and some text (not so much different than other pictures and text on the screen) that the company whose game you are playing for free is offering something to you, which you are not forced in any way to buy. Didnt see any begging in any of the ads so far. So, as I said, people with certain mentality see these quite differently then the rest of us. Moreover, they feel that their feelings are invalidated because no one is resolving this or understands how these ads make them feel.

 

If there is indeed a mod blocking these ads, than that is the best option for people having issues with them.

This is totally correct and I agree whole-heartedly.
