Non-invasive, optional advertisements for small rewards?
Ok, other games have this, where the ads are not invasive, but you can get a small reward for watching a 5-30 second video.
I have become really tired of the time it takes to win eight matches of Training Grounds for 20 crystals, when other events/my real life are taking my time. I read some studies that showed OPTIONAL advertising as a reliable and non-invasive way to increase app revenue. I would be ok with this for MTGPQ. I’d say four ads daily, 5-30 seconds, giving five crystals each. Keep Training Grounds the way it is.
I think the game needs more revenue to survive and improve, but without actions at the expense of the player’s wallet or game experience/time spent grinding- at least not to an extent that people are turned off.
The only downside I can think of is the potential nature of the ads themselves. Most that I have seen in other games were fine though, nothing controversial really.
Anyone have an opinion on why this could be a bad idea? Or any thoughts in general...
