Either way, the obvious thing for FB to do in this situation would have been to field test their ads bullshit in their own fucking games first, so that if anything has gone awry, they would have been the sole receiver of said blow back.— Anton "Back From Vacation" Hand (@AntonHand) June 21, 2021
After listening to player feedback, we realize that Blaston isn’t the best fit for this type of advertising test. Therefore, we no longer plan to implement the test. We look forward to seeing you in the arena and hope you try the Crackdown Update that went live today!— Blaston (@BlastonGame) June 21, 2021
Wow, oculus’s whole advertising in games plan just backfired— Irishman312 (@irishladd312) June 21, 2021
Would still love to speak to y’all about this. Shooting an email to Jamie soon.— Eric For President (@EricPresidentVR) June 21, 2021
For better or for worse I do think you are champions to take the chance. Regardless if you went through with it or not, it takes absolute raw guts to put your neck out there
You are ? https://t.co/X990Se1bht
V respectable @resolutiongame. I'd planed to reserve judgement til trying it myself & hoped fellow players would also show such restraint. But seeing that you acted on the feedback you received is v encouraging. This kind of advertising seems better suited for a free to play game— GamingScienceTeacher (@GamingSciTeach) June 21, 2021
Thank you! Facebook can't annoy people with ads if developers don't go along with it.— Sam Hulick (@SamHulick) June 21, 2021
You've earned yourself tons of loyal fans today.
And as much as I hate the hate (???) That Blaston has gotten, the message is clear; VR Community does not want ads.— Dr. Oolong (@OolongDr) June 21, 2021
I'm just glad the Resolution devs actually made the choice to listen to the outcry, rather than waiting for the test itself.
To make it clear, we realize that Blaston isn’t the best fit for this type of advertising test. As an alternative, we are looking to see if it is feasible to move this small, temporary test to our free game, Bait! sometime in the future.— Blaston (@BlastonGame) June 21, 2021
Either FB genuinely didn't think there'd be blowback to the Blaston vr ads thing, in which case they're just bad at being a platform steward.— Anton "Back From Vacation" Hand (@AntonHand) June 21, 2021
Or they did and decided it'd be better to have a 3rd party catch the buckshot, in which case they're a horrendous platform steward.
Glad @tommy_palm responded to the community outcry over his companies scummy tactics of putting ads in a paid game after people have purchased it. Resolution Games will not be using Blaston as the trial game but will try use Bait! instead (as that *is* a free game). Good! #VR https://t.co/Swv1Zh9Q65— Jeremy (@J_Shepz) June 21, 2021
