iOS 10 cinema and Ads after missions (warning)

For iPhone users out there, I've been on iOS 10 since beta 5, and am now running thr GM version, to be released tomorrow (9/13). The Cinema does not work, nor do the ads after missions. So keep this in mind before upgrading. I posted a thread in the bugs section and tagged @Shteevie and @OldGoth

Cheers all.

    I appreciate the heads up! I'll hold off on the update until NG fixes the bugs. Having just gotten my videos back, I don't want to lose them again!

    I'm looking at iOS 10 and watching a video and just tried the cinema. Not sure why I can but you can't @CrowTRobot.
  • JayZJayZ Member Posts: 3,716
    @rachel227 because even though they tell us the cinema and crate reward videos are fixed and improved, they never actually do anything to fix them. I try the cinema once every few weeks and find that it STILL cuts into my crate reward videos. Went 24 hours once without an extra crate unlock. Also, no one really notices or cares when threads get posted, which is sad, because we're wasting the opportunity to get precious resources.

    Well, we do care. I know that. I also know that we're not actually in control of the ad delivery. Mobile game ads is infinitely more convoluted than I think is necessary, but then again I'm not the person who manages it.

    Depending on your region, the number of ads available changes, and the way the different middleman companies divvy them out is also variable. I might experiment with looking for videos just after midnight if you are still up, because I would guess that these allotments roll over with the date, but this is pure speculation on my part.

    I also know I have seen the number of videos change here in Finland as well, so please don't consider this a "they don't care because it doesn't affect them" sort of thing. It's that with the middlemen, we literally need to act every time we get a complaint, and there's no guarantee that they won't go back to the poor allocation the next day.

    @rachel227 i upgraded a month ago to iOS 10, and have not seen 1 cinema or ad since. I still get them on my iOS 9.3.5 ipad. Thanks for the info. Maybe it is random, although i did try reinstalling the game, and that did not help either.

    I'm in the middle of downtown Washington, D.C., which I doubt is a region that should suffer from any shortage of ads. It's just a bit frustrating because I try to time my game play with when I expect crate unlock videos should be working correctly (based on the four per six hours rule), and then find that I either have to spend precious gold or forego gold crates when that doesn't work out, which is rough on a largely FTP player.

    I have been running iOS for several weeks now and am currently using the GM. Depending on my location I sometimes get movies after missions and sometimes not and suspect it may be due to connection speed. I am at work now on a very high speed connection and have just watched a movie after a mission as well as used the cinema.

    I'm not getting any advert movies after upgrading on iOS iPhone 6.

    1 ad in the last 48 hrs and still on iOS 9.3.5 so it's not entirely related to iOS 10

    This is unrelated to any issues with the new 2.1 release of NML. I had the 10 beta for at least 1 month, and -0- ads or cinema since i installed. Just wanted there to be fair warning out there! Happy upgrading!

    my adds and cinema is back.

    I've been on iOS 10, since it came out, with no issues other than no ads in this game after challenges. I do not believe its iOS, it's NG, post 2.1 update.

    I'm on iOS 9.3.5 and I've lost all vids in last 24 hours. Nothing in Cinema or after missions. So, it may be a coincidence that they stopped after iOS 10 update. This seems to be an issue independent of what iOS being used.

    I hope it gets fixed soon!

    I'm also on IOS 9.3.5, no cinema ads since 2.1 update, 1-2 per day after missions.
  • Rick_ZKRick_ZK Member Posts: 296
    I have no ads in any game since iOS 10. I think it have something to do with the new ad tracking limitations in the new iOS. I can't even change my limit ad tracking switch, this seems to be different in various parts of the world.

    Roughly 36 hours after last video, I just got one Cinema and one mission vid. I'll take that as improvement.
  • CrowTRobotCrowTRobot Member Posts: 97
    I got 4 cinema ads, and 4 after missions just tonight. After a solid month of nothing. So let's hope

    None here in over 48 hrs.
  • christpuncherchristpuncher Member Posts: 13
    I think it's the 2.1 update... Haven't had any ads since I've updated. Still running 9.3.5 here.

    @TheLostSlayer Thanks good to know.
    But I would recommend people to first inform themselves what consequences that switch has.
