If I were getting Uru for free, then I would expect ads to be part of that bargain. However, that is not the case. I pay a subscription fee to be able to play Uru. As such, I do not want (nor should I be forced to expect) to see ads in-game.

since when have ads ever been something than uselessly loud and flashy hey ?

if cyan is in the situation where they have to put ads to survive, they might as well shut down the live servers right away...

If advertising will keep Uru going, I'm all for it.

Gametap is not just URU - there are many other games, Gametap TV, music videos, etc. Even with Uru being #1 on Gametap, new content, as well as the "live" component of the game, costs. Probably proportionally more than the more static Gametap content. The money has to come from somewhere.

If advertising is needed to allow the game to continue to evolve, (and thus allowing Cyan to employ the people needed to keep Uru live), the advertising should be welcomed as the "Keep Uru Alive" funding.

Just my opinion.

Simply put:

If advertising shows up in the Cavern or the Ages ....

I'm going to quit.

This is not an idle threat.

I already quit Gaia Online because of the advertising. Every time a new feature has been added to Gaia recently, it's been sponsored by someone. (Gaia Cars, sponsored by Scion! That was the very last straw.)

I get enough advertising in normal, everyday life. I appreciate that Uru is a 'place' I can go where there is no advertising.

If the advertising is limited to the login pages, or very subtle product placement (Coke cans on the tables in the Tokotah Rooftop, for example), then I might put up with it, but if it becomes blatant, I'm outta here.
