For a long time now, I've had my µBlock turned off on Moba/Dota/Smitefire, because I want to support the guys. But ever since I turned it off, the ads have gone from passive to VERY aggressive. Erstwhile ads were blinking at the most, but the new ads make pop-up notifications and horrible noises. They even force leave the page to some of the ads' site! I was looking through Embracing's Nidalee guide (http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/nidalee-nyaaaaaaaa-411523) when it got notification pop-up, sound which said something about winning repeatedly and I couldn't leave the page. I had to shut Chrome off through task manager.

I am currently trying to reproduce it for screenshots and evidence.

Browser: Chrome
Location: Finland
Malwarebytes/Avast!: No viruses/malwares on my computer according to those

EDIT: Embracing's Nidalee guide AUTOMATICALLY redirected the page to this address: http://creative.rev2pub.com/rev2pub/tags/xdirect/xdirect.html?p=70554089&serverdomain=rev2pub&ct=html&ap=1304&cb=1451932122140

Sorry Janitsu! We'll certainly look into this, as we definitely don't want to have these kinds of ads on our sites. Thanks for all the info and feel free to update this thread if you have anything new to share!

Literally, while trying to view this post because I have been getting pop ups, I got this pop up.

Obviously not the actual windows phone number you'd want to call with this issue. I've been getting these on builds&guides both on my computer and my phone.
BTW I made this profile just to post about this because it has become such an issue in the past few months.

Hey @ sharkboi269, thanks for the screenshot and details. If you could provide us with your geographic region that would also help us.

We've been having some issues with unwanted ads recently but we're doing our best to remove them. Unfortunately it's not as simple as it might seem. Sorry for your bad experience with ads on our site, hopefully we'll have these problems fixed soon.
Thanks to Hoppermh for the sig!
