    I'm not one to complain, but yeah I kind of agree. It is one thing to watch a 30-sec ad every so often, but it is far more annoying to always have an ad on the side of my screen. 


  • Okay, I added an ad blocker through the chrome extension and it did the trick! The side banner ad is no longer there.
  • Be careful what you say ApplesVII on the forums.

  • i hate to :heartbreak: but i think it's prohibited because it violates THIER  rules of the game

    Meh, as long as people know it is out there then I am content.

    Its like they are purposely making that final straw heavier and heavier, until snap, all gone!.

    Be interesting where exec order came from, Stillfront or GGE, each will probably blame the other, but I know who my monies on. Stillfront gotta certain reputation with bought out games.

    Play this game a lot in the eventing because I hate al the ads on tv. and now ads all the time in a game?
    i spend sometimes a lot money and then a time i play without money. depends on income and time.

    I know this is not what you guys want to hear but I can't get these ads to disappear. The only thing I can recommend is one purchase in the main game once every 60 days. I believe that if you use the paybycall option this payment can be as little as a few cents.

    I know most of you won't do this and I respect that, but perhaps this is able to help out someone.

  • why don't they use it in some in-game advantages i.g getting small rewards/boosts if we watch ads like in E4K

    That's because you buy in-game so won't see them.

    The new ad strip takes up about a 1/10 of your complete screen, and that's noticeable and intrusive on a small, say laptop screen.
    From what I can see the white strip remains even without ads, if you have software that's stops those ads.

    Bad move GGE, even more gonna go now!
