It's happening again, like it did with the Dragon City ads, only this time it's 'Empire of Kingdoms' and I think one called something like 'Game of War'. It's just happened on 3 pages in a row.

I'm on the mobile site on Safari on iPhone on iOS 7.0.

Oh it's MN that's doing it, it's it? It's driving me ducking bonkers.

I'm offski for a bit. It has rendered MN unusable sad

Do you mean that the advert for the app is opening even when you don't tap on it? Is it one particular ad?

The ad at the top for Game of War - the App Store opens on the page for that game even if you don't tap the add, even if you're nowhere near it...

Yes the app is opening automatically, it's for game of war.

Game of war. I'm on my mobile, can't even see the ad, but when I scroll down it randomly switches over to the ap store.

PseudoSanta Fri 13-Dec-13 15:47:51

So say you go to TIO, the page opens with a blank space where the ad would be. Then the ad loads and the App Store opens. Every time, every page. Infuriating.

Please make it stop! About every 45 seconds, no matter what I'm doing, I get booted over to the App Store. I couldn't even stay on MN long enough to find the Site Stuff board and post so am very glad this popped up in Active Convos so I don't think I'm going mad :-)

Yep same here. iPhone with Safari. Really really annoying

PseudoSanta Fri 13-Dec-13 15:49:44

Tell Tech this is a CODE RED. Mobile site is unusable.

Please make it stop!

It's taken me 15 minutes and multiple App Store trips just to get here to report it.

PseudoSanta Fri 13-Dec-13 15:52:15

Just got taken there for 'Castle Clash' as well.

We're on the case. Are you all having issues with the Game of War advert? We could do with knowing so we can kick it sort it.

HappyAsASandboy Fri 13-Dec-13 15:54:49

It's Game of War for me. Happens randomly every 30secs - 5mins or so.

Going to try disabling App Store in settings like someone clever up there said ....

SledYuleCated Fri 13-Dec-13 15:55:20

Mostly Game of War, had Empire of Kingdoms a couple of times to start with, but not had that since my second post up thread

BrianTheMole Fri 13-Dec-13 15:56:17

Arghh, this is driving me crazy. Its getting worse.

DoubleLifeIsALifeOfSorts Fri 13-Dec-13 15:56:20

Yy game of war

candycrushhater Fri 13-Dec-13 15:56:37

Game of war for me too.

InkySkink Fri 13-Dec-13 15:57:25

Yep. Game if war here.

WYorksLass Fri 13-Dec-13 16:02:43

Game of war for me too, every time I open a page.

DorisShutt Fri 13-Dec-13 16:06:25

Same here; all of the above. angry

SledYuleCated Fri 13-Dec-13 16:08:45

The advert takes a few seconds to load after the rest if the page which is why it seems like it's when you scroll down/why some people won't be seeing the ad, as it's just a blank bit at the top before it does load.

tabulahrasa Fri 13-Dec-13 16:08:50

Game of war every time I've let it open properly (Iphone 3, god knows what IOS, a bit slow)

But, yes, it's opening randomly when I try to open threads, just scrolling down - just all the time basically, every 10 seconds or so.

FrankelInFoal Fri 13-Dec-13 16:12:51

Yup Game of War app here too. Everytime I change page the bleedin thing opens up the App Store.

PeerMon Fri 13-Dec-13 16:14:01

Yep, game of war for me too
