I apologize if this has already been asked, but I thought if you upgrade to ANY of the features not included on the F2P version of U3 F2P, the ads go away. I bought the split-screen add-on yesterday hoping to get rid of these ads, but I'm still getting the long and somewhat annoying ads it came with.
You should try to message Eric-ND about this. Sorry I can't be more helpful here.
Anyway, follow this link and let Eric know about this:
Well thanks for the help in getting in contact with Eric! Maybe he can help me understand what's going on so we can fix it.
Alright thanks for the help. I don't think it's fair though, as splitscreen costed money as well. And any purchase is a purchase they didn't have before.
I don't feel like making a new topic for this, but I have a question after reading the FAQ (seen here): are the normal (as in not-GOTY) disc-based DLC maps (Sanctuary, Village, etc.) compatible with the F2P Co-op Arena plug-in? The FAQ says the maps are compatible with the competitive side, but it says nothing on Arena compatibility.
EDIT: Also, if you're past 25 already, do you only need to buy the Rank 25 unlock to get XP? I remember something about how the no level limit DLC is missing a necessary file and therefore comes with the 25 upgrade in order to correct the error, but I'm unclear on the subject.
