    Nice to know you think your player base is a bunch of perverted 12 year old boys.

    /SECONDED!

    Do you think I tell any of my friends I play this game? HELL NO. I'm embarrassed to be associated with Evony because of these ads. Do you think I'm going to sign up for iEvony and give you my contact lists when I think you'll send my friends and coworkers ads like this?

    And honestly, people like me and my friends would be your best clients: late 20s/older 30s, good jobs, disposable income, long history of playing games (especially RTSs). I could pick up the phone and have a dozen guys who have been playing games from Civilization I to Dune to Age of Empires to Starcraft to Warcraft logged registered for Evony in 10 minutes, and all of those guys are hard-core gamers. So why haven't I even mentioned it to them? Because these ads are an embarrasment (I'd have to do a lot of explaining), the lag sucks, and there is no high-level content.

    Are these ads really that effective? Really? How many of the customers that are attracted by these ads actually stick around long enough to buy coins?

    RETIRED FROM EVONY
    In short, the carebears won the battle for Civony. Behold their chubby rainbow bellies and tremble, for they lost every single battle, but sure as heck won the war.

    Wow, just wow. Maybe that's why we get so many beginner cities that never get past 0 prestige. They quickly learn it's not that kind a game that the advertising is selling.
    Just weird. I'm a little offended really.

    Yeah, these advertisements are an abomination. Where are the vocal womenfolk in this discussion? Or have the devs ran them all off already...
