NC1070 for me, with a BUNCH of stuff.

 

$75, and a crew with 10 points to spend, crates, ultimate everything - it sure would keep the grinding of this guy to a minimum.

 

Anyone else getting this kind of ad?

Can confirm NC ad spotted several times yesterday and today.  

 

Also adds for light fixtures 'cause I looked up outdoor lighting on the Home Depot site and Aerogarden ads because I somehow killed all my plants this week and searched Google to find out what in God's name did I do wrong.  

 

Beats those other ads that *ahem* show up for no reason whatsoever.

Partially, and from a day-drinker, you have a lot of nerve asking.

 

What was the question, again?

i wouldn't mind seeing ads for in-game stuff, but just in the hangar

 

if it helps keep the lights on and the servers humming, i would even buy stuff

 

WG, here's a tip...  run personalized ads, just like amazon    show me ads for the plane planes that shot me down in the last battle!

I see no such adds or pop ups, nor do I use any blockers....perhaps firefox is taking care of me.

How about in the queue before battle?

 

WG has a captive audience for the 20 to 60 seconds we spend waiting for the battle to start.  The possibilities for ad-based revenue are huge (but scary).

 

I sit there and watch the timer go up, hoping I won't go above the "average" time in the queue, then when it does, hope it doesn't go above the "max" time.

 

A quick ad for something I might actually buy would be more entertaining than watching the timer. 

 

It would probably generate more revenue for WG and I'd rather watch commercials than put up with all the busy-work (grinding for specialist ratings) or paying money required to keep moving up tech ladder.

This.

Every single WW2 battle game I've ever played on a tablet or phone makes -major- use of this as well as the ability to watch a limited number of ads per day and get small amounts of "pay for" tokens/gold/etc. It's a major revenue stream for most of them. WG is literally shooting itself in the foot and having to charge all of -us- more by not using that captive audience appropriately IMHO.

I -HATE- ads, but I also recognize their use and their value to a company. If the ads were limited in time, text/image only, whatever.. where it didn't -really- affect queue time (shouldn't be that hard to make that happen) though.. I'm already sitting there staring at a screen I'm ignoring anyway.. and who knows.. maybe one of the ads might -actually- be entertaining or useful. It would also give them space to advertise their _OWN_ other properties and get cross-game revenue generation.

I'm just saying this is actually a good idea for WG -and- for the playerbase.. especially because that Ad revenue would allow them to advertise on other games or just trade ad space for ad space. Something also done in a lot of the gaming industry at this point.

You get a lot of gear for that money.  Two ten-point crew is pretty nice.  And the ultimate stuff for the aircraft will make it tough once specialized.
