What web browser are you using mate? Get yourself Opera and use ad block or Firefox and do the same thing. Haven't seen a ad on the Internet in years.

problem is that its not an advert, its cvg's own "best of e3" so adblock doesnt stop it, its speakers off or use some external software to throttle the mainpage so you have time to click onward before the video starts, its really annoying, hopefully they will kill it once the finish with the e3 fallout.

Ah, I just noticed the video, and god it's annoying!! Why have it on autoplay? CVG are quite bad for ramming s**t like this down our throats.
I've put the volume to mute on the video player, now when I revisit, it doesn't make any more sound. Give that a try, ideally though CVG will remove it to save bandwith.

So bloody annoying.

Please, please, please get rid of them. Whoever thought that they were a good idea needs to be taken away by the men in white coats.

Really, really sorry about this.

We're working on it and it should be sorted this week.

As you may have noticed we're swapping things around on the website and that opens up all sorts of problems.

Everyone's free to PM me if they have an issue about anything.

Best,

Rob

this was actually the only reason i signed in now. To make this thread.

Please get rid of the autoplay. It is without a doubt the most annoying thing to add to a website.

*edit* spotted the post above, thankyou :D
