Are on-screen advertisements for the Crown Store acceptable?

There seems to be some confusion as to what and where the messages popped up. This is what it looked like. Large letters in yellow across the screen. This is what we are voting on.

    Spamming ads so early into the new model is a bad sign of how mich direct influence the money men are having on in game stuff and , just as when studios mess with TV shows, this is unlikely to end well.

    If they are really going to turn this into a scrolling advertising screen then at the very least this spam should not be inlicted on those paying subs.

    Might explain the PvP lag though - it's the server overhead from all the new Coke & BP ads above the keeps...

    I don't mind, but I do think we should start calling them Zo$ from now on. Heck even before the game came out we saw the money grabbing.

    I have been referring to them this way since the announcement of B2P. All they have to do to get us to buy stuff, is put stuff in the store that we want. So far, less than meh....

    Feel free to show some proof that I agreed to see adds pop up on my screen. Very well could be that is is hidden in the fine print somewhere. Either way, you cant convince me that I like it.

    I voted non-acceptable because (if true) I don't like it.

    However, I don't mind the ads on the launcher and I wouldn't mind seeing as many as one an hour in chat. But across the screen (if true) is no good.

    Even the guy who dropped the elder scroll 30 times in 5 minutes last month made me hate any messages across the screen.

    I fell out of my nest

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I screech I screech
    but no one hears me

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I started to wonder off
    I want to come back but lost my way.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I came face to face
    Of Mighty Lion

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I came to fall in love with Mighty Lion
    Who's claws is sharp and just

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Then suddenly
    Mighty Dragon Came

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Dragon roared aloud
    Who's mighty paws make earthquake
    that quivers underneath our feet

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Soon battle rages
    Between the Mighty Lion and Mighty Dragon

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    My heart grows heavy
    For who do I belong in Scourge PS4 EU

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I continue to battle.
    But Battle I must do within myself

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I screech, I screech
    Long and hard. I made a fuss

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Then suddenly
    As if I was dreaming

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I heard a screech
    But suddenly, I attack Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle had to defend

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I know I was fighting for Mighty Lion
    So I fought back.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I attack I attack
    But to no avail

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    The Mighty claws who's mighty claws
    Felt unnatural to me and very clumsy to me

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Why I have chosen to not stay with you
    I do not know. I am complicated at that.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I have destroyed Mighty Eagle
    My own kin in Scourge PS4 EU

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I crawled into a ball
    Weep to no avail

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Lost in my whirling thoughts
    My heart and mind is clouded

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I have served Mighty Lion over a year
    I thought Mighty Lion is were I belong anew

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I finally contacted
    Mighty Eagle

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle says they love me
    In reality I love them also.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I continued to clash
    At Mighty Eagle however

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    But clashing with Mighty Eagle
    Just not feel right


    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I have made a wrong choice I now believe
    Terrible and unjust of what I did

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    For am I not a monster
    For attacking a faction who loves me instead

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I was wrong
    Mighty Eagle was right

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Come. Please take me back Mighty Eagle
    For I believe I now know

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Were I truly belong
    For indeed I thought

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    That Mighty Lion
    Is were I belong.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    O how I was so wrong Mighty Eagle
    I was gravely wrong and such a fool I was.

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    You have met
    Princess Justine

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    Princess Justine who attacked
    Mighty Eagle

    Mighty Eagle
    Mighty Eagle
    I know this was wrong
    And so to does Princess Justine

    I voted they are NOT acceptable, but... in the moment of clicking that option changed my mind. Too late. :-(

    It depends entirely in how it is used. A message that scrolls up my screen upon logging in? Fine, though I do tend to log and relog quite a bit in a gaming session, and that would become annoying to me. A message when they've added new DLC? Also fine, since that is something I actually WANT to purchase.

    Today I played for 4 hours, and the National Pet Day notice came up twice. That is definitely too much, and definitely too soon.

    I just have to laugh at the audacity.

    I think they absolutely have every right to call out crown store offerings. There would be a huge difference if it was being overly abused but a simple system message is mild.

    How dare they market to their customers!?!

    Say "No" to Global Auction Houses. Keep the door open for player run stores out of their own home in instanced neighborhoods. Set up my own vendor to sell, hang a Blacksmith sign, load up the vendor and ..you get the point.

    I agree, a simple system message is fine. But I don't agree that a message every two hours counts as a simple system message.

    Upon login? Sure.

    This was my experience today. In 4 hours, the message happened twice.

    Edit for clarification: in that 4 hours, I did not switch chars or zone anywhere. 4 hours, same char, same zone, 2 messages.

    Absolutely NOT acceptable under any circumstances. It's a slippery slope and just one step away from RNG gambling boxes and "xxx won a XXXX" spam splattered across the screen. I feel fortunate as an EU player, that I didn't see this nonsense.

    I don't mind.... ZOS needs to make money. Them letting us know about crown store offerings doesn't seem like an inconvenience. Now, I have caveats to that. It should only pop up on initial load and not randomly during gameplay. Like a tip of the day.

    To be honest though, I've been away on holiday for a few days so I didn't actually see the in game notification. At the time of my vote I thought this was a theoretical problem.

    Knowing that it actually happened lead me to read upon it. I just don't think it's as simple as should we have them or shouldn't we. It's HOW they're used... Their existence doesn't bother me, their misuse will.

    National pet day? THAT irks me.

    Of course @Valen_Byte, it's possible I'm experiencing the early stages of Stockholm Syndrome. :worried:



    I agree. How something like this is implemented is most important. When I made this poll, I was specifically referring to how they plastered the message across the screen during game play.

    If it had been a one time message when I logged in, that would not have been so bad. If it had just been a chat box message, ok fine. But, I'm in a dungeon, fighting for my life. Message pops up, I dont have the ability to ignore the big yellow message. I have no choice but to read it. This makes me take my focus off of the game.

    System messages of any sort should never interfere with game play.

    There are plenty of ways to market to their customers. We do not need a message coming across our screens interrupting our gaming experience. Talk about immersion breaking... which is something ZOS, I believe, has prided themselves on since the beginning. I mean, the UI is as bare bones as it is for a reason. Why are they all of a sudden turning their backs on this?

    Oh wait... $.

    I am all for them making money, make tons of it, please, so that we may all continue playing. Just keep your money grabbing tactics off of the middle of my screen. Do it when we first log, do it in chat box, announcements in the login page, plenty of other places to do it.
