    It makes no difference whether it is porn, light-erotica, soft-core, or tasteless.  People can no longer visit this site from work because of these ads.  This puts a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouths.  This game has a bad rep already.  Now MMORPG is giving themselves a bad rep right alongside it.  I have no doubt that young children and young adults visit this page regularly.  If you can't understand why it is a problem for some people, you're clearly not very intelligent.  You can agree or not on whether it is over the line, but you should at least be able to understand where people are coming from who have issues with it.

     

    I personally think it is embarassing for this website to keep these ads up as much as they do.  A complete shame.

     

    So, your reasoning is this shouldn't be allowed because you are bored at work and want to not do work and instead do games, things that are rated M and NSFW (not safe for work).  Such a great argument.

    Maybe you should do work instead of doing games at work, I don't care what you're reasoning is why you want to only post on forums at work.  Where I work, we don't have computers to do that while working.

     Just because you don't have computers at work, doesn't mean others don't.

    And what people do at their jobs and/or in their coffee breaks.... that is their business. You have no right to judge that!

    Sounds more like you're extremely jaleous. /shrug

     

    Referring to my previous jobs working at like a gas station or some sh!tty place, no they don't have computers.  If you are working, like most claim, then you should be working, not browsing an M rated NSFW website.  I can judge people, because I'm calling them out for what they are typing and acting, hypocrisy.  I can't be jealous because I work at home, make decent money, and can't complain about work ethics that I no longer have to care about.

    This has gotten too far!

    Ultil you can assure me MMORPG.com will refrain from sexist porn ads, I will unfortunately keep you on Adblock.

    K, I can't tell if this is sarcastic trolling or if it's serious.

    Either way it's fucking hilarious. Porn ROFL.

     I work as IT consultant, get very well paid and work pretty much continiously from behind my laptop!

    What I do at quiet moments and during coffee breaks... is my friggin' bussiness! It doesn't make me a lousy employee nor one that doesn't do his job! As I do my job well thank you very much! And work overtime plenty enough at times when it demands.

    Other people browse news sites.... I and other browse our favorite game site. Big friggin' deal!

    So keep your self entitled so called morale attitude for yourself and have a good look in the mirror and see how ridiculously presumptious your are! Tjeez.

    From the trailers and the adds, I still havn´t seen anything that comes even close to being porn... Atleast not the kind of porn I normally watch

    you US boys are just too prude :P

     

    only region where AoC had the breast of female chars censored while cutting off heads was *yay* :) odd mentality you got over there with everything about the female body and naked together being "evil" ^^

     

    i mean who cares about a few semi naked women in an ad ? :)

    Funny thing, I surf this site using my cell phone when at work and I don't see any offensive ads.

    But if I wanted to use my computer I'd just install Adblock.

    See, no need for unnecessary drama.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Exactly. I've seen almost every ad and site skin for this game and there has been nary an ass, nip, tentacle or shackle to be seen.

    Its clever advertisement making topics saying SB is porn they work for SB  just attention seekers thats all i dont see any porn here in those adds but i replyed in this cleverly advertising topic OP made.

    There are a lot of kids browsing this site, but it seems no one gives a damn about that.
    The adblock community is working for a fix as we speak. Soon all softcore porn ads will be blocked, including the future "legit" ads on this site.

    For start just add this to your adblock filter " http://images.mmorpg.com/images/2013 " it works like a charm.

    I don't see intercourse pictures or explicit nudity/sexual acts in those ads?
    Apart from some naked bellies or legs shown indicating an Asian chick art style?

    Still, that can't really be classified as porn, can it?


    Or are you one of those ppl that cry PORN!!!!!! when you see a small dot from 500 yards away and think it might be a nipple?

    The clothes these women are wearing are no more or less revealing than the average bikini.  I doubt the kids will learn anything they didn't already know, they will survive.

    this is not "softcore pornography"

    that term deals only with pornography, this is not pornography. 

    you have to get very liberal with the definition to make it apply here.  liberal enough that it would apply to most all media.  find the wikipedia entry if you're curious what softcore porn actually is.

    how are SB ads any worse then the many others from the crappy freedium browser game ads from years ago or even AoC's ads?? 

    the ads arent porn they are at worst softcore/erotica :/ now if they were naked showing full skin then maybe the argument its porn would work but they set the game up to hide that crap until you pay RM for it or some bs lol

    all the ads are doing is attempting to attract the immature gamers who still giggle at the word breasts....

    Well, they better disconnect the internet then and never go out, I see 'worse' examples then those Scarlet Blade ads whenever I go to a beach....

    I can understand that these adss give a wrong impression when browsing @ the office, but come on, this is not porn....and to censor/ban ads like these make me shiver what they want to ban next....

    Actually i quite like some of them hehe. Old farts have to go not ads lol

    Always funny how other countrys react to stuff differently.

    On a more serious note: If THIS is porn to you, you really must have a sad life. These are half nude comic avatars at best. If i turn on the TV at 13pm, when kids get home from school, there is ALOT more "porn" on the TV then these adds.

    As someone else said: Blood, Weapon, crime and all those REAL issues are ok on adds? But half nude comic avatars are a no go? Funny how other countrys have differend moral.

     

    That being said: I dislike the adds as well, they are just cheap and don't quite fit to the standards i was expecting from MMORPG.com.

    MMOs finally replaced social interaction, forced grouping and standing in a line while talking to eachother.

    Now we have forced soloing, forced questing and everyone is the hero, without ever having to talk to anyone else. The evolution of multiplayer is here! We won,... right?

    I ask seeing you are a 42 year old male, I would think one wouldn't mind the boobies. I am 35 and have no problem with the adds and I love boobies.  Just curious why it enrages you so much when they are blatantly not porn ads.  They are a little racey but nothing that is work/home inappropriate.

    Side note: These adds are no different than every other Asian grinder that has been advertised on here for the last ten years.
