Another Activision influence detracting from a great gaming company.

Doubt it's Activisions fault, as I can imagine the cost of maintaining those servers isn't something to sneeze at. And plus, most of the forum goers know a way to block the ads. FF + AdBlock + whatever the addon that disables flash = no ads, yet Blizzard is still getting paid. We see nothing, they profit, win win.

I was assuming this was .... EA inspired? Or whoever owns that ad company they just inked a deal with since it was very recently they signed that deal.

I totally agree with Kryptich - this looks like Activision horning in on what they said they would leave alone. In fact, its my opinion (based off some of the developer comments that I have seen on the beta and live forums) that Blizzard was not 100% ready to release Wrath, but was forced to release it this quarter by Activision.Personally, if they want to throw some adds in, fine: but put them on the bottom of the page. When I am at work, I have wowinsider, tankspot, worldofmatticus, and the official forums on my browser. I hate the way the flashing adds on these pages can sometimes cause my old laptop to freeze up for a second or two when I switch between the different tabs.
