As of the latest patch and addition of the rk2019 server funcom has decided to add in game pop up ads and forcibly show them to paying subscribers at login to the game and and at certain levels to all paying subscribers. A funcom forum moderator has already begun to silence opposition to this new change in policy and threaten account bans for discussing it.
Anarchy online up till now has never had any type of in game pop up of ads telling players who have paid subscriptions to buy more from the funcom cash shop. A private Funcom response to this is all games have pop up ads now and so will ao now.
Funcom is upset that players may take some type of legal action over this change. No prior notice of these ads being added to the game was ever made. Paying subscribers have no option to deactivate these ads. This can under the law could be considered fraud by deception.
A funcom response to this issue.
"It is intended that you would get a popup at certain level milestones (such as 25), as well as the shop popping up once per character login per day. It also might happen if you’re playing at midnight (local time) and then zone.
It is not intended that you get shop popups multiple times per day when zoning, dying, or just playing (without leveling to one of the milestones).
We’re looking into reports of the latter. Thanks!"
Funcoms policy with ao is to now have in game ads aimed at paying subscribers. Ao has never had in game pop up ads until now.
