    False advertising of the "Premium" product.

    I noticed something in your Premium advertise (if you click on Premium - right upper corner).

    The text says:
    Enjoy a premium MMO-Champion membership with exclusive rewards
    So. There are 2 rewards you get:
    1.) custom title / badge
    2.) ad free version

    Nr. 1.) is definitely exclusive. There is no reason to argue about that.

    Question is now: Is nr. 2.) exclusive?
    Everyone can download Adblock. And its NOT illegal.
    And if everyone can download Adblock and have a ad free website, its not exclusive anymore (imo).
    So if you say "if you buy this you only get exclusive rewards" and sell this product (the membership) isnt this "false advertising"?

    At least thats how I see it.

    Additionally:
    Definition of "exclusive" (adjective) cambridge dictionary https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dic...lish/exclusive

    C1:
    limited to only one person or group of people

    You combined two things to make your number 1. The ad free experience is just a bonus in addition to the two exclusive rewards.

    They ought to raise the Avatar and Signature [file size] allowance for Premium members... I'd pay for it, if I could have a proper animated avatar with more leeway on filesize [was a pain in the ass to compress my avatar to fit into a 20kb file].

    sounds legit. But doesnt "with exclusive rewards" mean that every reward has to be exclusive (especially in this context)?
    English is not my native language, so maybe thats the problem.

    Anyways, I am just curious to be honest I dont want to harm anybody.

    I wouldn't say so, to me it just means that more than one reward is exclusive. Then again, I'm not a native speaker either.

    Your avatar makes me dizzy. Please don't make it bigger.

    Size [dimension] ain't the issue... was talking about FILE size... it's got awful artifacts due to the compressing of it.

    I want to make it clearer.

    No, it just means that you will get more than one reward that is exclusive.
