Ads and having to close A8

Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:06 pm
When playing the 10 free ads or the ads for 10 free  boosts I am forced to close the game as the "Close" button at the end of an ad doesn't work. Anyone else? (Windows 10)

Just curious. Are you VIP 0.
Ads tend to give a lot of problems to VIP 0 players.
 May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

Yes VIP 0 

I have often thought about just making one purchase but is it making just the one purchase worth it for extras?

@pepperpot : I don't think so... When they want to screw us, they will just do it... Freeloader or VIP...

I saw this just last night.  I'm VIP4 so it's not that.   I don't remember what the ad was for. but i've seen this happen before with other ads.  It's just poor programming.  Sometimes the close button simply doesn't work.

Haven’t seen it recently, but there was a time a few months ago where I had to do that constantly as well. (VIP 11 btw...)

Maybe they are rotating through all the different platforms with this “feature”. 😝

Yeah Pepperpot, I've seen that as well. It's the ad that doesn't work properly, not the game. Can you remember which ad it was?

I have a biased opinion about becoming VIP, since I am one by choice.
That being said, I would strongly recommend you to make ONE purchase, for instance, buy the car package that costs only two dollars. That will be enough to make your account VIP and you will not be annoyed anymore with freaking ads, at least for some good time ahead, and your ads, the ones you can choose to run or not, in a general sense, should work better.

It was one of the Candy Crush ones.
