    Default WOW advert on DDO banner

    Firstly apologies for the poor picture.

    Was just wondering why we had an advert for WOW on the DDO banner?

    My guess is... money?

    I believe that turbine does not choose what ads show up, a third party does. The ads pop up every so often, reporting them to turbine might actually do some good.

    If you're playing an MMO like DDO then you already know what WoW is. If WoW wants to advertise through DDO that's sort of like profit sharing. "We have SOOOOO much money, lets give some to the little guys."

    this.

    iirc turbine does have ads for other MMOs removed when they show up so yes, reporting this would be helpful.

    My belief is they are third-party "smart" ads and show up for whatever you've googled recently in the past few week/ months.

    They also seem to appear for whatever ads have shown up for stuff that's appeared on other sites you visit regularly.
