Is anyone else seeing "Start Your Journey Now, My Lord." ads everywhere - like 3 per page, and on every page?

note: this is not a complaint

Yes. This was actually being discussed earlier in Gwerdy, not really an appropriate advert for a "family friendly" site, although I guess it can't be helped? Not sure.

Edit: To make this thread title family friendly:

I foresee many an interrogation when parents look over younger TDCers' shoulders and see this topic title. This thread is innocent enough, but let's stay away from the unnecessary naming scheme, if it's not too much trouble.

Gotta love that "Best Game Ever" ad with the blatant pair of breasts. Not even a smidgeon of medieval in it and the "Evony" is about 3 pixels high.

Check Radix's link above. They have a chat lobby which costs $0.30 per line.

For some reason, that ad always shows up on this thread. So annoying.

I'm getting Dark Orbit now.
But yea, if I see an advert like that I'm more likely to not purchase the product. The first company who put their logo on the moon is the first I stop buying full stop.

I actually wanted to try out that game at one time, but I didn't because the ads tell me that once I get into it, the playerbase is going to be a bunch of immature teens. Heck, a multiplayer Civilization clone sounds fun, but not with immature players.

the real civ is only 20$. anyone who is serious is already playing it. anyone who isnt is someone who cant affor a 20$ game. i.e. case and point of muz, immature teens and kids. the ads on my site havent gotten that bad. i think theyre at the second to last one that still look kinda medieval-y.

all tdc has to do is add whatever site those ads are coming from to their competitive add filter in google adsense and they should go away.

What, and lose ad money? The only reason those ads are there is because they're bringing in cash

$20 is pretty damn expensive, depending on where you live. It's like two weeks of wages in some countries.. and 18 days of pocket money to some kids. And it requires some mid-level hardware; even my new laptop lags with it. Also, I like the idea of playing it MMO style, but I'm going to wait until someone more decent does it.

be careful of these browser games... some (including EVONY) are trojans/malware.

Yah, I don't think too many seasoned internet users ever click ads, anyway. I believe they are more tailored for people 'new to the internet' who are naive enough to click on things like that, which is why they go hand in hand with malware.
