Annoying ads

Post by Trogers2 on Thu Sep 03, 2009 11:55 pm

Everyever I go, an annoying ads seems to pop up saying "play now my lord" and features a semi-naked female woman in a banner sized image:








I swear it is everywhere, even going as far as YouTube in some cases. It has even made the papers over here.

That's why the marketing professionals are well paid and well compensated more than any other business profession, including finance, accounting and CIS.

You have no idea how many people would just click the links...

They are too lazy to make an original banner, so they just go with the semi-naked lady. It's what any developer does when they arent sure about how many player a game will attract

What's ironic is when the game was first coming out, it was just a warrior in armor. And I actually clicked that and checked it out, got bored, and quit.

Then when these titty-ads came out it made me think it was either a really crappy game, or a game that would resort to unrelated sexual advertising just to make money. Either way I was never clicking those ads.

Then my cousin said he played it, so I finally clicked the link, and realized it was the same mediocre game I played long ago when the ad was a warrior in armor Razz

If you google "Evona ads" you can find whole articles about their slimey advertising campaign.

FIREFOX USERS!

Adblock Plus

I've been using AdBlock and this derivative since 2004 - cuts the cruft, especially useful when someone is SUCKING THE BANDWIDTH like a frenzied vampire would suck your blood. It is to the point where even my most bare-bones Firefox profile contains ABP. Know it. Love it. Mess around with it.

...wait, this is a discussion of how dumb Evony ads are? Count my vote as "completely balls advertising!"

...This is an advertisement for a GAME? Or is it softcore pornography disguised as a game? Or should the marketers be made into splash-on paint? Whatever the case is, it's just another instance of the "sex sells" crap that's been shoveled into marketing for the past few decades. This one is a bit more... blatant.

Not that I mind looking at a pair of mammaries, but misrepresentation using sex - or any misrepresentation - is uncouth.

Stop saying sex , why does everything have to be sex related...
anyway with those ad's they can get a few knuckle heads and lowlifes
play the game and spend money on it... it's not to much to think of.
And by the way, this is highly normal, in some casses for an ad...
for other's it may be consider an abuse, or pornographic related.
Great my appetite is dead once more... got to get more food Razz
/EDIT\
Oh!... yeah, and by the way. i bet you 80% that those are with
operation done, they may be real but not all women have big ones.
So that's why 20% is left that they are natural... Suspect
