Thwarting In-Game Advertisers

KenFisherKenFisher Member UncommonPosts: 5,035

There's a gold-selling company with a new tactic for advertising inside of WoW.

 

What they are doing is parking several pets (bears is what I've seen) so that the names of the pets spell out an advertising message including web address.  I've seen it in Stormwind on my server, but if its on one it will be on many in no time.

 

My discovery is, if you park a Draenei Elek or one of those big mammoth mounts over the pets, the names are no longer readable and the advertising is averted.

 

Pass this idea along...  hopefully they'll give up and go somewhere else.
