    Gotten this one (the "FANTASTISKT!") a few times now. First time I just panic-closed the page because loudness. It auto-plays a fanfare when the ad is fully loaded.

    Flash file link: http://www.aldaniti.net:8080/imagene...0228112602.swf

    I can't prove it autoplays without mouseover just from that link, but you have my word that it does. It was at the bottom of a page that I hadn't even started reading it when the fanfare blazed.

    PvE:er to the bone. Plays a druid. Also plays DotA and a whole bunch of other stuff. Listens to mostly everything.

    You can either clear your cache / cookies (If its one of those Ad-track crap you get sometimes) or the better solution! Download Firefox / Chrome, get the Ad-Block Addon. Enjoy the rest of your internet days without any ad's. (Youtube ad's get removed too)

    I do use Adblock for chrome, but I disable it for sites I really wish to support (such as MMO-C and YouTube). The point of this thread, however, is to report the ads that the site does not condone (such as gambling, goldselling and auto-started noises) specifically so that people won't feel as inclined to block ads altogether on MMO-C.

    I keep getting a download on MMO and I'm thinking it's an add. When I noticed it there was a Dell add up, but I'm not 100% if it was from that or not since i was browsing pretty quickly.

    It downloads a file ref=sv_pc_4. Doesn't seem to do anything (avast didn't pick anything up), but certainly worrying since this is the second time now :x

    I think these fall into the gambling category

    http://imgur.com/a/otOyf

    Betsafe wants me to bet on champion's league and NHL, clicking gets me to https://odds.betsafe.com/fi/?action=openaccounthttps://odds.betsafe.com/fi/#/#%2FProview%2F50

    Betsson on the Finnish hockey league. https://www.betsson.com/web/fi/Sportsbook/?spp=Default

    Casinoeuro: https://www.casinoeuro.com/fi/

    All these ads appear all over the site. The only other ad I get is the Scarlet Blade one.

    Country: Finland
    Browser: Chrome

    I recently enabled ABP because of the influx of audio advertisements on mmo-c (sorry!) but over the past 36 hours I've been noticing something very peculiar... Those ads that get enabled in words in posts/articles on some websites that I think everyone despises severely. Have a look:

    There was a thread about that recently -- it's actually malware on your side putting the hover links on words.

    Sigh, great. MSE caught something the other day and dealt with it. Ugh. Guess I've got more work to do. >_<

    Also, if you can disable ABP and get me screenshots + click links of the audio ads, it would be really helpful!

    We want them gone, but I need specific info to pass on to our ad guys so they can complain to the ad networks.

    The curse bottom banner is HORRIBLE. Pretty much all the ads that play are video ads that autoplay, and have sound. I don't use adblock because I'm okay with sites getting money for their services, but if this continues I'm going to get it just for this site.

    I'm not going to post links simply because it is almost every ad on the curse bottom banner. Nevermind, idgaf, I got adblock just to block this site and this site only.

    We hate them and we are trying to remove them, but we need links so our ad team can complain to the ad network. We've already told them we don't want ads with sound, but it's up to us to complain when some get through that filter.
