Valve's aren't the only ads in the game!
There is an ad for GameHelper.com in there.
I would've thought they'd meld the ads into the space better. Having each board with a mask over it with dirt/rips/bullet holes/graffiti/plants, it looks like a banner ad in that screenshot.
I know advertisers would want their ads unobstructed but if it detracts from the feel of the games then people will be less inclined to play and then the ads will be seen by less people.
A dirty looking advert in game will be ignored by the consious mind but subconsiously it'll register, that's what ads try to do in the real world why not a virtual one.
Isn't it right for the game publishers to give the games for free if there are advertisements in them
As in other businesses the advertisers pay the price ...
It is, yes. They don't do it though. Of course you can just take the games for free and consider them ad-supported. Like I always say these days, we the consumers have the power - we're the ones who are in control of the money and if we don't like the terms we can take the product for free anyway. Game publishers gotta be careful.
You got that right This advertisement thing is going to spread the piracy even more ... who wants to pay for games with ads ... That Suxxx
One thing can you use the spray tags on the billboards? cause if you can a well placed "male apedage" or other funny items could be sprayed in funny places
Ok, so I don't play the game at all but doesn't it strike people as a little odd that there are ad boards around the walls of an area called aztec?
Not really, ancient Aztec culture was well know for its high profile billboard advertising campaigns. ye olde ancient aztec would come home from the temple and look up in adoration at the Quetzalcoatl homemade rug emporium advert.
ps the above may be made up
If you could shoot the billboards and make it break up that would be cool, obviously it regens each round so no harm done.
If they'd blend de adds into the atmosphere a bit more,
it wouldn't even hurt the map. AXE have made some
nice adds that don't even strike you as a weird image.
But if they're going to make a neon-add in an Aztec map... ouch
Given the outcry there was with BF2 advertising I am surprised there is not more being said as it affects the most popular online game on the planet.
I hope this makes people move to Source. I have no idea why anyone would play CS1.6 (Maybe apart from technical limitations) nowadays.
Expect to see weapons and bombs models being plastered by haliburton advertisements
Personally don't see what the bloody fuss is about. They don't affect the realism 'cos there isn't any and they don't hinder the game play. Who cares?
You obviously didn't play 1.6 very seriously.
Gah, this is infuriating!
You would think that they would do it with some style, possibly add some torn effects and bullet holes or something. The block colours just don't blend in, it just looks awful.
I own a server (well with my clan) and i don't want to be forking out £25 a month to get an ad-ridden game with no option of turning them off. I can see this killing off some players fast.
man that just plain sucks
it looks like somone just tacked it on, and ontop of that they havent even fixed any of the problems with 1.6 - theyve just added more
now whats that IGA IP range ...
wow.. that ad looks terrible.. I sure hope they fix that... I expect a lot of servers wont be hosting de_dust2 and de_aztec much in protest of that
