In Game Advertising

Why was there a change? @Teeceezy

We used to be able to view in game video advertisements in exchange for three more crate unlocks at the end of a mission approximately 9 times per day. Now it's down to about 3 times per day. Quite a nerf when you consider this in combination with the removal of deadly mission rewards.

    9 times a day? I've always gotten 3 on ios... maybe 4 if I was lucky.

    I know what you mean. I used to be able to watch 4 after-mission videos every 6 hours like clockwork (3 chunks of videos a day if getting enough sleep). The same for the cinema on the world map, 4 videos every 6 hours. It has been changed recently, but I don't know quite how.

    I'm still getting the same amount of videos as before

    seems less than before...

    Perhaps videos have been glitchy just for me, and maybe others, for the past several days.

    My videos after Missions seem to be the same, but I have noticed them less frequently from the Cinema....but the Cinema has always been a little glitchy, and sometimes you need to keep going back to the World Map to activate the Cinema. I play on iOS.

    there is additional update on android that fixes this issue, I believe.
    Check it out.

    I have always had the occasional video that won't load.

    I downloaded that update right after they announced it. My issue is new.

    This morning, for instance, I was well past the 6 hr mark for the cinema, but only one video was available. Yesterday after 7 hours, no videos were available. The day before, I got two videos after 8 hours and then nothing.

    I don't really care about the cinema so I wasn't even going to bother...but if this info helps others it's worthwhile

    My cinema is not working properly as well...I'm near Birmingham, AL on an iPhone 6s (fully updated)...I might get 5-6 videos per day total and the timing is off...I might get one and then another one hours later...worked fine for months up until a week or so ago if I had to guess

    I verified with my brother though that his is working properly...he is near Chicago, IL on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (fully updated)...he gets his usually between 9-10am and then on 6 hour intervals (provided he checks)...and he said he is getting all 4 each time

    @SlickRick , the reason I ask is that I found out a while back that the videos are dependent on region. Also if you can identify the video that doesn't work, that's causing the issue, you can download the said game and you won't see the ads for that game anymore. This was what worked for me back in the days. I don't know if this is true now but that's what I was able to gather from the forum.

    @zbot

    I should have clarified...with mine the videos play fine when I get them...no issues there...it's that they're not being delivered in the time frames they were before...I used to get 12 a day (4 every 6 hours) and now I may get 5-6 on a good day

    Hope that helps!!

    I'm in Kansas, USA

    Videos not loading is a rare occirance, maybe a couple times a week.

    The reduction in the number of advertisements available occurred about a week or two ago.

    Thank you for clarification on the video region. Im in seoul korea and experienced a variation after the new upgrade. Can you share the formula for my country as I still feel like the video schedules are different than before the update. Please and thank you!
