Anyone else getting constant pop-ups asking you to upgrade to premium membership every 5 minutes? Really beginning to get irritating, looks the same as when someone asks you to join a squad. =/

Yes, along with some minor additions and UI changes. It also shows you how much extra xp you'd get if you were a member on the kill screen which I find a little bit annoying too.
Haven't had one in a while now though, so it may have been a glitch.

I do find the extra emphasis on buying membership all over the menus to be really irritating too "I'm a free to play game, but I'm going to harass you till you buy stuff".

You get something similar at the end of very round in world of tanks.

From this afternoons patch notes:

Quote:
Misc

Lowered the respawn time after redeploy from 15 to 5 seconds
Increased presence of membership status to highlight those benefits.

Really annoys me for some reason - should have expected it though. :P

Been playing for 20 minutes and have had 8 pop ups asking me to be a member today... This is ridiculous.

I agree, this is annoyingly invasive... Constantly asking if I want to know more Y/N? Fuck off :[ It's bad enough you keep pointing out what I'm missing out on!

SoE's forum announcement on the issue ...

https://forums.station.sony.com/ps2/index.php?threads/update-regarding-in-game-advertising.180176/

tl;dr. : We screwed up, so turned it off...for now.

This guy (Ferret96) sums it up pretty nicely;

Quote:
"I want to love this game. I had a subscription on and off and dropped a couple hundred dollars in SC purchases. But I haven't played for months because my computer runs this game at 10--20 fps, crashes, and I don't agree with what SOE is concentrating their development on. I've followed the game updates and forums hoping to see something worthwhile to bring me back in, but I'm continually disappointing. Now they are putting intrusive ads in the game. Boo.

You know what would bring me back?

1) Develop things the community cares about. Metagame, Resource Revamp, and Continents... Anything to give this game some meaning. Stop rolling out new camo's, guns, and vehicles. I know those things are what bring in the whale-cash, but I could care less about a new gun that has a slightly tweaked ADS or ROF. What I want is to feel like I've won something when I'm done with a fight.
2) Non-exploitative membership. People have said it above and I agree with their reasons.
3) No in game Ads for paying members.

I really want to want to play this game... But SOE continues to piss me off. What do we get in April? OooOooOo another balance patch."
