@EA_Mai I appreciate you taking the time to give us information about the Sim point ads problem. I also realize that everyone is busy but, it has been several months since we've gotten any updates and the problem still has not been solved.
Are the ads still being worked on and will eventually be returned? Or are the Simpoint ads permanetly gone?
I was wondering this also. I check the store often to see if the ads are back. I'm torn between waiting for ads or spending actual money to finish up the store.
Guys, it's been 6 months since the ads stopped working and were pulled from the site. At this point, I'll be surprised if they ever come back, and EA has probably just been giving us lip service the whole time because... it's EA.
I feel bad for Mai, because she's done all she can do, which is notify the team of the problem and relay info as it becomes available. But, until the person with the power to fix this does something, we won't see any changes; if EA wanted to fix this, it'd have been done by now.
@lauravonawesome I was thinking the same thing. What a way to treat such loyal customers. I really do hope they fix it, because it was a lot of fun to get points accumulated and gift things to friends, and pick up some stuff for myself as well. I already spent a TON of $$ on the packs, so I liked the idea of getting these extra store items for "free"!
The only reason they haven't fixed this problem is because they will lose money if people watch ads instead of paying for points. All ea cares about is making money not releasing quality products or listen to what there customers are talking about.
Actually @Panda14616 I think they were making more money buy us watching the ads. We were paid 5 cents (U.S.) for each ad we watched and I bet the ad companies were paying EA more than that. (Not sure how much more though). More than likely the reason why EA refuses to fix the ads and everything else wrong with the store .....Like the sales page..... is because they are trying to force us into playing their closed world Sims 4.
I know that the ad feature probably won't come back for a while (if at all!) but I also feel like as soon as I buy points with money the ad feature will come back immediately after
I thought the same thing, but that was months ago and it still hasn't happened.
I don't see the ads coming back until after I own the store, if they come back at all.
