Really Guys? I mean Really? If your Marketing Director is telling you this is ok, then you need another new one. This is just unacceptable. I would like this addressed in the next ESO Live please as to how you can justify this flagrant abuse and advertising. It makes you all so cheap :(

I should also add, we got this on the EU Server. In 3 different Languages.

There is no "European Buy a Pet" day today.

I can only now assume that this is a very last ditch for a quick money grab from the PC User base. Unless of course someone can say otherwise.

I strongly suggest you have a word with them and see if they understand the concept of Invasive Marketing. And while your at it, maybe research how to do selective marketing as well. There is absolutely no reason, with the data you have on your systems, this script could not run and post the relevant language to each user ONCE!

Ok, based on some peoples thoughts and comments, I thought I'd put the link to each post in this thread here, to make it easier for them to see :)

Keep the better ideas coming people and who knows, maybe, just maybe, they might take it on board?

    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.

    While I agree it's not exactly high class to promote this way, I don't think it'll go away and I can live with that. They just need to do it rarely, or only upon log in, or something like that.

    The "huge outcry" over the one time this happened before was a few very vocal people on the forums who apparently don't understand advertising.

    There's a simple solution for people who don't like in-game advertisements: ignore them.

    Amazed that they dared to do this after everyone outraged the last time.

    Zenimax,
    -We all know there is a crown store.
    -Most of us probably read the launcher's news and ads before playing the game.

    There's no reason to shove these offers in our faces as we play, we are already fully aware of them.

    This was pretty clear when I opened the LAUNCHER.

    No need to ruin game immersion with obnoxious advertisements for something we are already made aware of when opening the launcher.

    Unfortunately, it's coming off as more than that. It's greedy and pushy.

    My game language is English. Therefore, please keep your alerts to English. You're reasoning is perhaps one of the saddest excuses for a pointless advertisement I've seen in a while...

    We all have to launch the game from the Updater/Launcher, so right there is plenty enough of a notification of some silly cash shop item.

    This is really cheapening the in-game experience, and undermining the quality and class of ESO and ZOS. Just so you're aware.

    Fine, I can understand that, but splashing it across the screen as a system message in game is not the way to do it. Everyone sees the launcher and probably at least skims the headlines in the news feed. That's where this belongs. Or the character select, or on a loading screen. Not splashed across the screen in game. Please discontinue this practice, ZoS.

    No ...Nononono, Zenimax .. you are not kindly reminding us of an opportunity .. you are advertising a paid service, full screen, breaking the immersion of everyone trying to enjoy the game ..
    You are not helping us "not missing out" .. you are trying to milk us for money.

    I can't believe I saw this .. even free Koreans MMO don't pull that kind of stinking trick.

    Once per day is already too much .. desist, and NEVER EVER do that again, please.

    If you guys insist on doing this even though the launcher is quite sufficient for most people, can you at least put advertising in a different color (perhaps green) so we don't see yellow and assume the server is going down until we take our attention off whatever we were doing to read the message?

    This is really bad thing. I definitely will NOT buy this leopard which was advertized. I hate this on youtube and just stop watching immediately as long as I see it, and I don't have TV cable for same reason. So the only way I can do here - do not buy the advertized stuff. Will see how bad it will be in a future.
