i understand the fact that they need ads i just hate that they are in game i think they should come up while you are waiting for the game to start that would be useful for large games like 24 Diplomacy games just an idea
Thanks for the suggestion. You're right I think I forgot to launch them in the lobby, which is an oversight I'll correct.
The goal is indeed to try and put ads up as much as possible when players are idle/waiting. However, you can't restrict it *only* to times when players are waiting, since some people play WarLight in such a way that they're never waiting. For example, if someone only plays multi-day games, and navigates to the next game after taking each turn.
I also put a lot of effort into making sure the ads don't come up when you're busying trying to take your turn. For example, it would be really annoying it an ad popped up under your cursor right as you're trying to deploy to a territory. This shouldn't happen - ads only trigger when you're committing your turn, sending chat, or checking the My Games page, etc.
