The problem I have with advertising in-game is it has potential to reduce your freedom of movement, so to speak. If Monster Energy Drinks is one of the main sponsors of the game, for example, what happens if say, becomes one of the top rated guilds (or whatever the Titan equivalent will be called) in terms of world firsts, or something like that? That'd be a conflict of interest, since the announcement would have a sponsor's competitor's ad slogan in the title; would they make the guild change their name, or not give them any recognition whatsoever? Or if say, SyFy channel is an in-game advertiser, what happens to the guild ?In addition, some people have issues with any form of advertising, and will literally go out of their way to remove any ad they see (I'm one of them, I strongly oppose being told what to buy, or how to buy it, or anything of the sort; I know what's out there and I don't like 99% of it), so any game with in-game advertising is one I'm going to generally avoid, even if it's one I really wanted to play before I heard about it.
