It's happened three times in a row.

My speakers are always at 100%.

I don't really like having to scramble to find the mute button on the ad.

I don't mind helping MobaFire pay for the site by looking at ads (which is why I haven't enabled an ad blocker), but I don't want to hear them, it kinda sucks.

:/

Could there be perhaps a "Premium" account where you pay money so I don't have to see any ads at all?

We have audio ads banned on all networks, and we always have from day 1, so this should never ever happen. We do not intend any audio ads to appear on the site. Some have a button to click that turns audio on but those require interaction, they never auto-play sound.

jhoijhoi if it happens again can you take a screenshot and note down what the ad was for? That will help us to determine which network it came from so that we can contact them and raise hell.

I will try to see if I can get a video or screenshot of this as well.

I had problems with a danish commercial everytime I went on MOBAfire for the past few days and there is no way to mute it (Believe me, I tried).

If it pops up again I will try to tape it.

I should mention that, I have never once had an audio ad while browsing MOBAFire. The ads are targeted, and they can be targeted by geographical region, so if one slips through it may be because of that. If you can let us know what region you are browsing from as well, it could help (country and if you live in a very large country in terms of land mass, city as well). If you don't want this to be public knowledge just send me a PM.

It happens to me on a daily basis. I even made a thread about it in offtopic. I will take screenshots for you.

The first 2 commercials are danish:
This one is english tho':


Sorry that I am not able to record it with sound, but I do not have a program for this.
I hope this will help you, but I doubt it can do much.
