    Hello,

    So this post isn't about the reward handouts but rather the actual adds we see. Lately over the last week 4/7 have been for FFBE! As much as it stabs my joy centers to see an add start with a rainbow cracking, its really pointless to show these to someone that plays the game already.

    My understanding is the add algorithm takes into account your browsing history. Well, i can tell you that ffbe is on my top inputs but i dont use google, prefer duckduckgo. So i donno if the last google search i did was for ffbe but its like watching a dog chase it's tail

    Ehhh, I thought this thread would finally make me able to give the reward wheel result that I take notes.

    Well obviously, like any ads you can see on facebook, they take into account what you like, search and so on to show you the most appropriate add (so the company showing its ad has more chance to earn money in return.)

    I don’t even watch the ads that play. Their loss if they have redundant ads.

    I should do this too. Maybe someday, someone will have the energy to do the math. I’d like to know if the pie is representative of the chances.

    Lol yeah, i like to science things, so if someone wants to keep a score to find a more excact wheel i am all for that. However the fact that the current wheel does not represent reality is allready pretty clear, to me at least.

    I got my first 50 yesterday. Nothing above that since the change. Has anyone sent Gumi a ticket asking why they ninja nerfed the rates on the wheels? We get less rewards for watching 2 more ads a day....tf?

    I've got personalized ads turned off. I can't remember if I've ever seen an FFBE ad....maybe once. The ads I get the most are ones for that Raid game =/.

    To keep with the thread topic, the ads I often get are those be the king or emperor type of games, the one where the player gets to have a harem. ::silence::

    My ads are either:

    1) Express VPN (which I generally am using when I see the ad)
    2) Raid Legends (er no thanks)
    3) Hustle Castle (lol)
    4) Hero (something), where you can electrocute or burn your hero alive. They've recently updated the ads to show a new set of playthroughs, so I'm (a little) excited.
    5) Or these random SHMUPs that allow you to control the ship/missile car and shoot stuff. Those are entertaining. For like 10 seconds.

    Ad infinitum.
