    Please post any problems or bugs you experience with any of the new in game advertisements. We tested the new ad feature pretty extensively, but we hope to fix anything that fell through the cracks relatively quickly.

    Okay so it says you are working on making it impossible to play SoD w/o sound on, does this mean i have to listen to the sound spells/mobs etc make and not just the ads?

    On a side note, if you know all the reasons that are making people have less fun and stop donating, why do you keep doing them? This is a game people play to have fun, and you set your sandbox on fire and wonder why people dont want to play in it.

    Nonsense,SoD is still unique and by far the best EQ emu out there.
    Maybe its more your trash talk in ooc which makes newbies flee.

    That is insanely annoying, can you not mute everything but the adds? Athica music is like trumpets... very annoying trumpets.

    Only the advertisements will be unmutable.

    We are planning on having a sound clip which asks the player to type a special command in the console. It will play randomly every hour or two while you are in game, and there will be some sort of penalty for those who miss too many of them. That way we do not have to mess with client volume, and people can not get around the new system by unplugging their speakers.

    It would have some leeway, maybe 2 or 3 free misses a week? Numbers are forthcoming.

    Also, we would of course flag your character as exempt if you provide us with a copy of your disability card, or a note from a doctor stating you are legally deaf - with the doctor's office phone number of course.

    Lleoc, we're just as concerned about the deaf SoD players as you are, but please try to keep this thread civil and on topic.

    Edit: Do donaters also get adds?

    This is a real thing? Wow... Just wow...

    Basically, I play with no sound. I am boxing for my exp groups 6+ hours a day, and if I miss some random pop up saying I must type /cm iseedumbasspopup-sexchat-weneedthisbecausenobodywantstodonate or I get some penalty?

    I get that money is necessary to make this game work, and obviously fixing things to make the game enjoyable to players it completely out of the question, so adds are the next best option for revenue. So instead of making us deal with this adds on their own, we have to also acknowledge them with a command or we get punished. Super!

    SoD could be a better place with the right ads. Pls make it porn ads and not virus protection shit. (Condoms goes as porn I guess and not virus protection, but its a close call...)

    As planned we will not jail until the third missed advertisement, and banning will take at least 5.
