View Full Version : [Interface] HoN TV plays its ad once

I love HoN TV and think its a great idea, but its practically pointless for someone who wants to watch and play. Since I have to wait 30 seconds for the ad every time, using it in most queue or any pause is a waste of time. And if i leave the chat or HoN screen to only come back moments later, it starts me from the beginning and repeats the ad. I understand the need for cash since EA isn't booming, but shorter ad times and less ads could still be sustainable.

From what I've seen (haven't really used Hon TV) it is just Livestreams broadcasting inside hon's sudo-browser. Which means those ads are not within s2s control they are from Twitch(justin.tv) and the money from the ads goes to justin.tv and the streamer (insert your favorite hon pro). There are ways to block them but its considered not nice to do, so for S2 to block ads within their client would be a "dick-move". Justin.tv and the streamers would be :madm: .
