So strange celebrating advertisements those ruined tv for me and makes me hate watching youtube on my mobile.

 

But that is my opinion though i am curious how many people played wows because of this advertisement.

I should imaging that having a podium on the YouTube Video winners rostrum will reach Millions of people, even if 1% of those clicked on "World of Warships Join Now" button, that is a massive input of players into the game.

Maybe WoWs will give out a Bonus Code for winning, a free Santa container will be nice.

Thanks, we were just as pleasantly surprised!

 

But in all honesty, all credit for this goes to our excellent video team :Smile_medal:

Hey, what should we care about? Ads or gameplay? WG: Ads, dude!

 

So I'm really sorry but I can't be happy about it. +1: Ads are ruining everything, why should I celebrate them?

Every time I see that ad, my only thought is that if I didn't already play, it would in fact turn me off the game. It feels like it's  aimed at eight year olds. 

The other contenders hardly look serious there though so no surprise I guess.

And what is all of this has to do with the gameplay?? Its in the Gameplay section of the forum after all... :Smile_sceptic:

Since ads were mentioned - Ads are intrusive and manipulative. We hate them but their goal is often not to get us to love them or the company that aires them - it's called brand imprinting. Brands are imprinted in your brain over time (genuine psychological stuff here, not the stuff of conspiracy legends) - impactful ads that stimulate more intense emotions are more successful at doing this.

 

One day you walk into a store, you want to buy a new television or something, somehow you feel more confident in some brands and less in others. Ever thought about this? You just 'know' some brands, some from experience, some you'll never realise why, you won't even remember you hated that ad. Things stick in our heads and the stuff we feed our minds does have an impact over time to our interpretation of things, and helps develop biases we have.

 

That said, despite my many misgivings about some of their decisions, I like WG, some really good guys and gals working there and thanks to the community team the communication does feel better than it ever was.

 

So, congrats to WG, and also THANKS to EVERYONE that voted for them.

It's only off-topic if it annoys the mods.
