If they're going to monetise the game with ads, it makes sense to ensure they are delivering value to their advertisers. The huge anomaly is that ads are being delivered to all players and there is no opt out for those who pay. Not only that, but people are crying if they spend money and lose the ads. Weird.

There’s an easy opt-out : don’t press the ad button.
Other games, in order to monetise ads hide game functionality behind them, blitz just gives you a tiny incentive to play them with no effect on overall experience if you don’t

Mine too, on both accounts, I got the Sentinel from the event on both accounts, not spent a penny of real money on either since 5.5…

I also opted out of the Unity ad tracking on both…

May be related to those?  

Oh well, easy come, easy go it was such a tiny amount I’m not fussed…

On the plus side I wont’t ever accidentally catch a glimpse of the stupid Family Guy looking shoot em up or the Changing Rooms based garbage…

I had one ad in the morning, since then nothing.
It happened before that ads only started to appear in the afternoon so maybe it’s just a glitch.

good to know as that means it’s not that, I didn’t think it would be but wanted to eliminate it from our enquiries :)

I am still getting the ads, although the annoying Unity privacy question keeps popping up since I am refusing getting sold.

Did everyone who have lost ads, get the Sentinel in the event?

I'm wondering if we've been Ducked over like in the Duck Event...

Just the camo but ads have still gone.

 

Checked my old re roll which didn't participate in the event at all and the gold ads have gone on that too.

Quick update gents, I have gold ads back on both accounts now, so just looks like it was a glitch.

They’re back.... and I got credited with 1500 season coins as the livestream awards seemed far short of what is promised.

Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

+1 day of premium time, too. Nice that WG compensated us for this glitch.

Got the gold ads back late last night and again today when I logged back in. 

 

I still have the problem of extremely poor ping and huge lag after watching them so I just watch the ads whilst doing something else until they have all played 5 per day then log out and back in and performance is ok. 

 

Nice to have the gold but it is annoying they badly effect performance.

No matter how many times I see it, I am not going to buy Star Trek Fleet Command. Really. I won't.

Lol, I nearly cracked reminiscing about Star Trek on the Schools Commodore PETs, and the home version on my Dragon 32, but I’m sure this modern pay2win version won’t be a patch on it…
