    MMO Champion is part of the Curse network now I understand. I already have Curse Premium, so receiving ads about joining Curse Premium for an "ad-free experience" is rather ironic, not to mention misleading and wrong.



    Clicking on the ad:



    It even says "Curse.com and our major network sites are already ad free with your membership."

    autoplaying sound/animation.. doesnt seem to have just one ad, but multiple.
    eventually results in flash plugin crashing


    same ad again today.
    multiple ads in one. categories: airwick strepsils dettol daily-spots.com

    embed: http://s0.2mdn.net/3691115/1-300x250_car.swf

    object: http://d1cyvnjc1olxmw.cloudfront.net.../jw-5.7-sp.swf


    and again today.
    these ads re enable sound every time the ad changes ( no page refresh, the ad just changes once one plays through)

    When I clicked to enter "MMO Champion" without clicking on anything. A massive AD makes it's way across the screen. This is what I suspect someone else complained about. It's not just a little big. It blocks all of the screen AND you do not click anything to make it appear mega big.

    That's where it links me to

    Also this message popped up when I was writing a PM. Out of nowhere the audio started playing and the video.

    It didn't leave a url.

    In my experience, these ads only trigger when you mouse over the banner. If the cursor is left over the banner for a set pperiod of time, I think something 3 seconds, it will trigger the video. If you start hearing the sound, simply move the cursor and it will stop the triggering of the video. It threw me for a loop at first as well.

    The last time I opened http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...Garalon-Tanks?

    I was greeted by a forwarding pop-up to http://www.lordofultima.com/en/welco...ign=lou_iqu-us -- I missed the pop-up URL because I closed the window before thinking about reporting it, but I snagged that when I deleted relevant cookies. Ad for some flash MMO...thing.

    I believe I was just greeted with the same add. I was browsing the General OT list of threads and suddenly had another page opened to the "world's best free game" or something like that. I closed it pretty fast since it was loading something.

    Just had a floating ad, I was in the process of logging in (had entered my username and hit tab to enter my password) and the ad came up. Links to:

    Looks like a popover from one of the rollover banner ads -- did you happen to leave your mouse there while you were typing?

    I meant to say something the other day but forgot >< there are a few of the rollover ads where even if you quickly move your mouse across that part of the screen they keep counting down and pop-up anyway. The one he posted there is one of the ones I have had that happen on.

    Definitely possible, I did not see any banner ads, but then again I was not paying particular attention to the screen, was just on autopilot going to login.

    Plays noise, then goes into an obnoxiously big pop-up.

    That looks like a rollover ad - they will usually pop over if you hold your mouse over the ad for a few seconds.

    I had an adult dating ad today, I think they're meant to be blocked, the image is http://cdn1.clkads.com/ext/ibario/53...eral728X90.jpg and clicks through to http://www.chinawomendating.asia/?af...71811980318048

    Bottom right ad was an auto-play of sound ad that was for some light and fat Greek yogurt or whatever. I clicked the little blue arrow in the ad and it went to: https://preferences-mgr.truste.com/?...50&w=300&h=250

    After the ad finished, I went back in time to 2001! No refresh or anything for this.

    Not sure if I should post this here, but Google Chrome started to block access to http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...Simulator-2013.
    At least for me, anyone else?

    CanardPC links are currently being reported as Malware, that's the site where CPU-Z Validator sigs are hosted. So any page where someone with one of those sigs has posted is gonna trigger the Google Chrome Malware warning.
