    I have been having an issue with the bonus ads crashing the game (currently it's the Army men strike ad, and some unknown ad that flashes a white bar on the right side of the screen then crashes) as well as several very rude ads that cannot be muted ( like the puzzle ad) the worst by far are the ads that actually open my App Store before they can be closed. Very un cool.

    Hey ROVIO. It would appear that ads from "ad colony" are crashing the game. Can't tell witch one because all I can see is a black screen that says ad colony in bottom right corner, then the games gone and I'm back on my desktop.

    AdChoices is another one. I've been telling them this for months.

    Yes, AdChoice ads do fail as well, but some of them do play for me, where as none of the Ad Colony ads have ever played.

    The game should still be in your battle log, as the server would have recorded you were in that batte even if you disconnected.

    Several of the AdColony ads will play 3 to 5 seconds of the ad before locking up. Don't know if this helps any.

    All AdColony and AdChoices ads black out on me. I have missed a boatload of bonus points because of them. I have zero problems with any other ad. I've stress this point many times over with no results.

    Hello Devs,

    Today after a battle I chose to watch the ads, but I don't see any ads. Just a short flickering of the screen which lasts half a second and then I already get the rewards for watching an ad, but I have not seen one.

    People don't shoot me for saying this.......I know a lot will be happy not to have to watch the ads.


    Regards,
    Flint

    If you know how to contact devs, tell them for me all ads from AdChoices and AdColony are robbing me blind of bonus points. Sometimes that's the only ads that show and EVERY ONE of them lock the program up.

    I am particularly annoyed at ads that open the iOS App Store page on their product. They are loading my Apple ID with false data, it makes the App Store think I am interested in crappy games and it changes the recommendations it gives.
    Yes I know exactly what Rovio will say, "what the ad agencies do is beyond our control." NO it is not. You can refuse to contract with ad agencies that abuse users.

    Did someone notice yesterday extra battery draining ? I also notice the battery draining. I use Galaxy S9+ and Iphone X, but yesterday played on the Galaxy S9+. It used a lot of battery life for one hour play I have not measured it but like from 100% to 68% in one hour

    Hey ROVIO, I am seeing more and more ads opening my App Store. Just a little food for thought, the way I see it, you're on verge of a massive class action lawsuit under the new privacy protection laws. Don't tell me you can't control what advertisers do. YOU signed the contracts. YOU are getting paid for it. YOUR NAME is all over it. YOU will be the ones who pay if it comes to that. FYI, adchoices is the worst offender. There are many other ad companies you can work with. I play many games that have ads, NONE of them open my App Store. Just sayin.
