I really appreciated that Inno kept this game free from ads, but I guess it was just a matter of time before they introduced these annoying pop ups as a way of funding their game development...
Why do you state so firm that just a few players are selected....what is your source of inside information...or are you guessing......as you know that there was no announcement.....the diamond issue was also never adressed by People who work for a living at inno...In-game advertising
It would have been nice to have an announcement that some players have been selected to test a new FEATURE in-game.
To avoid stress, bad moods and other things, this FEATURE should be able to be switched on or off in the settings.
Thus, those who want to take the small gifts and also those who do not want to have advertising are satisfied.
This would be a WIN-WIN-WIN situation for all 3 sides (INNO, Pro's and Con's).
Thank you for this. I keep seeing this message about visit me in the Hobby Room and had no idea what it was talking about or where to find the hobby room.
I saw in the news from beta that apparently the having ads are so good you barely need to play the game anymore. So, I came over of here and discovered your post basically making out that having ads makes the game so unbalanced because in your opinion which is false by the way that the ads are UNLIMITED.My dear fellow players of Elvenar,
the implemention of ads in the game has a serious impact on the game balance alltogether. Since those ads allow you to literally have anything you want at any time you want and as frequently as you want to, then why keep playing? You can revive as many troops as you like after a combat, you can rediciously increase the production of whatever good you want, you can gain as many KP for wonders and research as you like and so on and so on. So why wait for anything?
Hi Annelore (and everyone elso, too),I saw in the news from beta that apparently the having ads are so good you barely need to play the game anymore. So, I came over of here and discovered your post basically making out that having ads makes the game so unbalanced because in your opinion which is false by the way that the ads are UNLIMITED.
In fact they are limited currently I know only two of the limits needed to create a new account here to get ads to see things for myself. Your only allowed 3 free kp per day and the builders hut new feature the hobby room is capped at 4 ads and 12 hours of boosts. That feature is the best one for new players allowing them to boost their goods enough to offset no tournament til chapter 4.
I'm a catering city so the troop ads I won't ever probably see. From the two ads on the city outskirts that I have done the rewards are similar to what mobile players have been able to get free from the shop once a day for awhile now. So nothing there that will unbalance the game.
I agree with everyone who has suggested that this should be an opt-in/opt-out “feature”
I took a look at the Forge of Empires introduction to advertisements in-game that INNO started doing last year, and the updated announcement from March of this year.I fear that this is only the beginning of a very inconvenient progress that will harras especially the long-time players
This would be the best solution but I fear INNO has already decided on the course they will be taking with advertisements in-game and won't want to deter from their plans.Perhaps another solution would be to place all advertisements in the shop/diamond purchase area - that way interested players can view them and gain rewards as much as they like, and others can easily ignore them?
