Hi guys and gals. I'm not usually a forum guy. If this is in the wrong forum or I've done something else against forum etiquette, my apologies. I need to air this out somewhere, and didn't see it in the forums, but maybe it's there and I missed it because I'm an idiot.
Let me say that I understand this is a free game, and I imagine most, if not all people involved in putting it together are doing it for the love of the game, work very hard, and are generally just trying to cover costs. I have no problem with banner ads for that reason. I probably would not have had problems with other types of ads, even ones that are somewhat invasive, given how free this game is.
I play on my Android phone. It's awesome. I've always played with the volume on, and have grown very accustomed to it. The audio cues when watching a turn are helpful if the video slightly glitches and/or doesn't pan and scan properly (i.e. you hear an attack but aren't seeing it. Is it a new enemy from an unknown place? Thanks for the help, audio cue!)
So now audio ads play randomly and often. Yes, I can mute my phone, but that's really annoying to begin with. Doubly so because I usually play warlight once a day while relaxing, and am usually listening to a podcast at the same time. These ads are constant, give no warning to when they begin or end. I have to mute my game constantly, and my podcast experience goes to hell.
This is driving me absolutely NUTS. I really love Warlight, but this is so obnoxious that I may be forced to quit. Again, I get that this game is free, and that revenue is necessary some way, via ads. I sign off on a variety of means to achieve this goal (how bout with....say...the youtube model where you basically know when ads are coming), but ads that start with no warning utterly out of left field smack in the middle of game play on a device I'm using for multiple purposes is COMPLETELY MADDENING.
I really like WarLight, and hope that this gets resolved, as it severely diminishes my enjoyment of a fun game.
