    Spoiler Cinematics

    So MMO Champion is now auto playing ingame cinematics from 8.0 and 8.1
    Granted most Ive seen already, but if this is a continuing thing, its going to just force this on people

    Add an opt-out option or somthing

    don't they typically have a "spoiler" thing you and I can click on that pops it up?

    OHHHHH i see what you mean now. Yeah that's.... odd.

    weird part, cant close it, I try to click on the X and it goes through to the ad behind it (currently an ad for the PS4 version of PUBG)

    Yeah can we have an option to turn these off? the banners and header ads i get but i dont need pages to load slower because they are trying to rerun a WoW cutscene on every single new page the site loads.

    I'll see if this can be adjusted. New cinematics won't be added to the list until well into the patch they are relevant for.

    Can you screenshot the ad and provide information on what browser you are using? This isn't intended.

    It seems to be an ad for DistroScale, no idea what that is, and it won't stay paused unless you pause it during an ad.

    It is SOO goddamn annoying having these cinematics popup like an add on every goddamn page. Jesus christ.

    if I use Chrome, while I can click the X to close it, it still reopens anytime I change page

    I'm having this exact same problem. And given the location of the computer I'm currently on I can't add script blockers or ad blockers to get rid of that nonsense.

    Okay, I'll try and get these issues fixed. Thanks for the reports!

    Autoplay videos in general is fucking retarded. It's the first thing I disable when setting up a PC. I am starting to miss the days when bandwidth wasn't so cheap and no web developer in their right mind would do this.

    I don't get it. No autoplay here unless it is due to AdBlocker?
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    No web developer in their right mind would do it still. It's mostly the higher-ups who say it has to be done to bloat their viewership numbers for advertisers.

    Yo, someone make a note of this day. I'm over here publicly agreeing with Zenkai. Screenshot this and save it or something.

    It doesn't make sense. The people who saw it saw it already, the people who havent dont want it spoiled or dont care. Who is this for?

    Seconding this - I don't understand who this feature is meant to benefit, especially since there's no way to actually engage with the cinematics in question (e.g. comments). Even with it only popping up on the main news page now, it's super irritating to have to close the popup every single time that I visit the site or navigate back to the news page from the forums. I frequently browse MMO-C from connections with slower download speeds, and these cinematics just impede the page load obnoxiously.

    I know this is a bit of a necrobump, but I was about to make a duplicate topic and I figured this was the lesser of two forum etiquette evils.

    Are you seeing it more than a couple times per day?

    Oh, definitely. As far as I've been keeping track, the popup loads in every single time that I open the main page (https://www.mmo-champion.com/content/). And it loads ads (thankfully muted) in between the cinematics. There's a "Cinematics" segment nested randomly in between the news posts on the front page, and the popup opens in the corner any time the segment in question is offscreen.

    Here's a link to a couple screen captures of what I'm talking about specifically: https://imgur.com/a/PZmH9DE
