Critisisim: No more ads

I hate ads. I never want ruby ads in my life. I will remind GGS time and time again. I don't are about other players; just implement a button to turn off ads. You have made the game a casino for children with the Wheel of Fortune and the Samurai card game. I AM NOT INTERESTED IN BUYING A VIRTUAL CURRENCY THAT I WILL SPEND AND WILL BE LOST IN CYBERSPACE FOREVER. There are children that are starving, and here we are buying something that doesn't exist. I will never, ever buy rubies. I don't care how many demon horrors or legendary equipment items you offer, but I will never buy them. I have no need for the ads.

Does it matter if GGE is scamming us? (Unless we buy rubies)

  • yeah, there have been a few suggestions on how to deal with this. the best 2 i have seen are

    1- allow ads to be turned on/off
    2- allow adds to be minimized like the alliance mini chat box. move it all the way off the screen rather than just an icon that gets in the way

    sadly, GGE will probably never do anything about the ads, as having them constantly in front of people has a psychological effect of making them want to buy it. they have actually proven in studies that people who have a product in front of them are more likely to buy it then those who do not, thus if we can move the ads out of the way, GGE will lose sales. probably like 1% or less, but to them, that 1% of sales is important.

  • Totally agree. Sometimes when there are 3 ads, I cant see some of my screen and the world map.

    Okay, listen, we should get our stories straight, alright? If anyone asks -- and no one's gonna ask, don't worry -- but if anyone asks, tell them as far as you know, the last time you checked, everyone looked pretty much alive. Alright? Not dead.

    Nobody is going to space, mate!
    Marie Curie invented the theory of radioactivity, the treatment of radioactivity, and dying of radioactivity. In Victorian England, a commoner was not allowed to look directly at the Queen, due to a belief at the time that the poor had the ability to steal thoughts. Science now believes that less than 4% of poor people are able to do this.

    "Starting now, if I'm honest, to wonder if you're doing all this screen-breaking on purpose. Beginning to actually take it personally. You know what I mean? Like, it's like an insult to me.""Ohh...! There goes another one. There goes another one. They're not inexpensive. I'd just like to point that out. Um, it seems... unfair, y'know, smashing screens. You could give them to people. Instead of smashing them, unscrew them and, and give them to like a homeless person, I don't know what a homeless person would do, but uh, you get my point. It just seems... and you can't unscrew them either, they're bolted in, but... auh, just stop it!!"
    "No, seriously. Do come back. Come back, please."
    "Okay, I've decided not to kill you. IF you come back."
    "Aw. Just thinking back to the old days when we were friends. Good old friends. Not enemies. And I'd say something like 'come back', and you'd be like 'no problem!' And you'd come back. What happened to those days?"
    "Can't help but notice you're not coming back. Which is disappointing."
    "Oo! I've got an idea!"
    "YES YES! IN YOUR FACE! I GOT YO-ah, nope."
    "Fine. Let the games begin."
  • I know. So why does GGS do it???

    this is my ask thread: https://community.goodgamestudios.com/empire/en/discussion/296736/ask-vamp-3#latest

    I know you're wearing thin down to the core.

    So hold your breath.

  • Make a tent called "Special offers" there all special offers and ads can be found, much better than having them stacking up on your screen.
    Yeah! if the idea of the game to get moooooore money is blocking the screen for 30 seconds to oblige us to buy they have sat out of the WC.... I invest money in the game but if this continue i just move o another game

    I hear there are now G00gle Video Adsense Popups.

    I haven't seen them and I never will. I block ads like those.

    I hope they aren't t00 obno%ious, but I hear people complaining about them, so I am sure they are quite annoying.

    Ads of that type Drive Away Paying Customers.

    Wow... a lesson from the past : GGE only taking 3-4 years to listen to frustrations from their revenue stream :)

    So.... Seems there were a lot more players in 2016 for various reasons but seems they detected a small pickup in numbers and decided that (external) ads were the way to go : I guess I can understand & applaud the desire to subsidise the game to keep some semblance of development to keep more players interested but fear the loss of casual players will drive those numbers (and therefore revenue) down dramatically... I guess time will tell.

    Especially interesting are the external ads for alternative games we can spend our time playing!!!
