Today, I discover, despite my long standing goldnoob status, I have free gold ads - something that was previously the preserve of my other non-EU accounts.

 

 

Why WG, why?

 

 

What mischief are you planning that you are offering freebies?

 

 

Something is afoot...

Wow, I just ran to check my phone and I too, despite being a major goldnoob, also have gold ads......

This is obviously the beginning of some nefarious neo-communist plot to devalue our gold reserves and force us into digital slavery......

Or it could just be a mistake by WG so profit while you can?

There is, I suppose, a vague outside chance that they have decided to do something nice for us in return for the vast amounts of cash flung their way. Would be nice if that were the case :-)

Indeed. What a surprise. Ads were missing for a full year.

 

So now we know how much we paid for the 1-day premium from last year's Ducks event: 18000 gold.

I only play on a variety of Windows devices, so I have never had a single gold coin. So how much did that cost me? Oh yes, nothing.

Even though my inalienable rights to free stuff was violated.

Happy others have gotten the ads though.

Me too! 

I thought it was because of me using the amazon version of the game for 2 accounts, one which had ads one didnt...

I thought i’d found a trick but guess not...

Still, happy enough to get free gold, thanks WG

The gold videos were available when you were a n00b and stopped the first time you bought gold. They magically reappeared the other day... not complaining that much though, only the adverts have usually nothing to do with the actual crap game they advertise.

I too now have ads... haven't seen that since 2014.  Now I'll have to avoid buying anything for a while!

I have them, too. I might just get a new camo with my new found bit of wealth.

Yesterday and today.   Cool.

 

My theory: they show the Ads to you for a bit but if you don’t buy any of the advertised games, they stop showing them.

If they're showing us ads, someone is paying them money to do so. Giving us a few shekels to watch is going to be well offset by what the advertiser is paying. How successful they are in selling the ad space can be determined by the number of different ads you see, and by the quality of the product you are offered. I'm mostly getting some low-rent Farmville thing, so not amazing. Ads for PUBG or Fortnite would indicate success.

I do get ads for some offshoot of fortnite. F. Creative or sth like that

I usually play them in the background while doing other stuff so don’t ask about details.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.
