Cinema ads. 1 advert per 8 hours.

So the new update is out and I’ve watch my first video. Got 20 gold nice. Then see the timer says my next video is in 8 hours time. Apparently I misread or assumed wrong from the update notes that we would be getting 4 videos every 8 hours. I personally don’t agree with the change. Yes the rewards you can get are better for a one off and you have the chance for phones. However we lose the chance for legendary weapons and armours and gold frags and components and a source of gas throughout the day. Please discuss this to give NG some feedback.

    From the Patch Notes:
    One cinema ad can now be viewed once every 8 hours (instead of 4 ads per hour previously).

    I presume they have calculated that the odds of getting something decent from watching 32 videos in the same period as one now are the same, or similar. I have my doubts.

    I have received from the 4 ads sometimes 10-12 gas. So those gas what we could get from 32 ads can be pretty high. Of course if we can now get for example 20 gas in 1 ad, it wouldn't be so bad.

    I'm a little on the fence regarding this. Love the 1 ad per 8 hour thing (hated feeling that I had to get on every hour just for ads) but as others have said, I've gotten some great stuff through ads before. @Vane can't you simply add a small % chance for epic and legendary components/gear? To me, that'd fix everything.

    I was never a big ad watcher so this is better for me, I agree that frags and components should be restored as rewards but I'm happy with the new format.

    The end justifies the means ;)

    I’d say 1 every 4 hours would hit the mark nicely. Wake up advert lunchtime at work advert home time advert, bedtime advert repeat.

    I got 90% crap from the cinema. I’ll take the improvement. But I don’t really on the loads of free gas that it supposedly gave out either.

    It was so bad I rarely watched them anymore. Now I probably will

    @Billdinger to give them their due you won’t ever get crap gear. You can only get gas, gold or phones. But 10 gas just before bed when you are in 0 will be a kick in the teeth.

    @andy75 my guess is you aren’t a FTP player who relies on those ads to get some of the stuff that you may well take for granted as you’ll just buy what you need? Basically you’ll now watch them as you may get phones and you aren’t even too fussed about the gas or gold? Would you have watched the old version if there was a chance of phones? I’m not attacking you or other PTP players in anyway with this btw.

    I like the change and yes, I am a (essentially) FTP guy. I have bought 3 cheap bundles in my 2 years and never have purchased a gas booster. With the old ads, I pretty much got a small amount of xp/supplies or gray/brown equipment. Sure, I'd get a couple gas cans here and there but never a very significant amount. Maybe enough to get one extra mission. I'd much rather have less frequent videos with better rewards (all cinema crates are now silver or gold, no bronze). On a side note, you can also now get some nice gold from the ads and that can be used to refill your tank. Bring on those radios and gold!

    @Firekid no I’m not f2p. But I have watched a lot of vids and never gotten more than 4 gas per set of 4. I’ve seen a lot of people get a lot of good stuff from cinema though. I just feel the 30 gas a day claims are a bit of an exaggeration.
  • FirekidFirekid Member Posts: 3,000
    I used to get 6-10 gas quite often in my adverts and certainly would get more than 10 in 8 hours which is what I just received. I suppose 20-30 in 8 hours would probably be closer to the truth and I’m almost certain you’d get more than 30 gas if you watched every set of videos in the 16 hours. I’m not asking for much of a change just 1 every 4 hours rather than 8.
