    Also I'd be really happy if for pro subscribers those random google adds would be filtered, it's not a dating game... i like seeing different ads of games or software and stuff, but dating services ? that's not even funny in my honest opinion.
    I heart iD! Bring it baby ....

    Not only that, but get rid of in-game ads as well. I spend more time there, so I find them more annoying. More views for in-game ads doesn't lead to more revenue; the ad space was bought already. We paying customers should not be subjected to them at all.

    You are absolutely correct. The ads were supposed to support the game when it was free. We are now paying customers, so we should not be subjected to the ads. Other sites with free/paid accounts do not force ads onto their paying customers. This is a slap in the face.

    I think your opinion is ridiculous. If the ads didn't bother him, then he wouldn't have made this post. They are bothersome, especially in-game, because that is where we spend most of our time.

    Yes, no more in-game ads for paying customers!

    You are paying that fee for the extra features that standard players do not have access to. I don't see anywhere in that list where it says anything about no more ingame (or website) ads for prem/pro players.

    From what I've gathered in-game, people see different ads in different places at different times. This would lead me to believe that they could simply turn off the ads for us and replace the billboards with the Q.

    I don't drink Dr. Pepper, I generally don't watch much TV, I don't have an Xbox, and I don't use Microsoft services, so the ads are basically useless. Logically one would expect that after paying for something ad-supported, he would no longer receive the ads. It's the model that is used pretty much everywhere, and that's why people are complaining.

    I don't do any of those things either as a Standard player (except drink Dr Pepper), how is your situation different in that respect? The ads don't affect either of us.

    I feel that you shouldn't get out of viewing entirely non-interruptive advertising. I suspect that you paid a lot less less money because Dr Pepper paid half of your subscription for you. Besides, billboards don't hurt gameplay...at all. I'd rather have the currently super-affordable Pre/Pro (and thus more players/competition able to access it) than blank billboards in the map; wouldn't you?
