Wouldn't it be possible (like on some phone games), that a Player gets coins by watching ads?10-20 a day only maybe but like that also weaker Players could Keep joining open tournaments and fizzer wouldn't lose Money since he'll get it back trough ads? does that System even exist on the Computer? otherwise it might be an app-only function...

There shouldn't be too much of an issue doing this on the computer, plenty of games do it already with their cash currency.

Edit: The only issue I can think of would be the legal issues where we can withdraw the coins. But i really don't know the laws behind that.

Bump. I wonder if fizzer or a mod saw this.

Great idea MoD! Would do this for sure and play more coin games as a result.

And also a loyalty program would be nice. On each person's own Warlight Birthday they should/could receive a small amount of coins.

Maybe if it was half what Fizzer gets paid for someone to watch the ad. Otherwise it would just make it harder for him to keep the site up. If it were a half amount, then he'd end up ahead because more people would actually click the ads.

I wonder if that is legal though. Can he reward people for clicking ads? I would think the ad provider would be pretty pissed.

I'm pretty sure it's legal. You can find it on so many games already. Also nobody would lose anything if it's done right.

The more ads the better...

User: More ads = more coins (If implemented by Fizzer)

Fizzer: More ads = more Revenue/Income (On the assumption he will get more money with the ads on his website)
1
Advertisers: More ads = More publicity (If there willing to pay more!?!)c

Win/Win scenario if what I'm think is right..

First of all, it's quite a work bit, but I didn't see earlier that Fizzer would be getting half the profit. In that case, it might be implemented.

I got no idea tough how much money it brings to click an ads like that. Maybe it'd need too many clicks to make it attractive enough.

This happens on other games. You click a link, it goes to the add providers website - you watch the video then get rewarded with game money. The rewards aren't huge. They must be less than what the site gets for linking to them.

You would need to have a cash out rule though - any monies gained from watching adds can't be cashed out. You have to use them in a game and then you can cash out the winnings from the game. That is how gambling sites (and yes this is a gambling site now) use their free bet / chips promotions.

I think that watching ads should be rewarded. Good idea!
A lot of players would want to do this too, because of not wanting to play for online games (haha, like me) and Fizzer would get a ton of ad revenue. It's a 'bonus' for all!

I like the idea, but I don't agree with the idea that it is a win/win (/win). Not a huge fan of ads, particularly intrusive ones, it's bad enough that they are present at the bottom, and distracting. Not to mention that ad blocking doesn't get you anywhere because it pops up with messages saying it failed to display an ad, and your points gained are significantly reduced. Why I disagree with their implementation as a source of income like this is a topic for another thread, but the point is, unless it's off to the side and out of the way, it will significantly decrease the user experience. I have already almost quit playing numerous times because of getting fed up with the ads. If this is implemented in a way that is equally intrusive, I don't think I'll be able to take it anymore.

Membership would solve that problem Daniel. No adds or popups just a blank space, and you keep your full points. It's not much either and supports Fizzer.

Although it is the only real benefit you get for it. Fizzer stopped true membership perks when he introduced levels.

Like I said, the reasons for my disagreement are extensive, and deserve an entirely separate forum post (edit: here's the link https://www.warlight.net/Forum/85674-ad-blocking-warlight), but the reason I don't have a membership is I'm not exactly an adult with a job, and my parent's would never pay for something like this. There are still further complications preventing me from becoming a member, but that is the largest.

What I was trying to get at is that if he were to implement this, he should do so carefully, or he might push away more players, including me.

Daniel macIntosh it isn't meant to be a popup where it asks you wheter you want to watch ads for coins.

An option on the dashboard or even on the coin page where you can take this offer wouldn't distract anyone and can still easily be found.

Nobody is forced to take the offer. Just an option for those who have no coins.

Master: I absolutely agree with that implementation, and still like the idea. I might even use it myself, but ultimately, it would be up to Fizzer how he chooses to implement it, and given how he's implemented ads, I'm not the most confident he would do it the way you suggested.

Daniel: If you don't like the non intrusive ads that exist here already then buy a membership.

I play on a 1024x768 screen, the ad at the bottom isn't exactly small for my screen size. The ad really isn't a bother unless you really are expecting this game for free forever.

+1 on Master, that's what I was thinking. PWE do/did this already and it can work well.
