Hey [violet], what are you looking for in the URL?
Because if it's the name of the game that's being advertised, or something to that nature, I can just tell you that (There's a good amount of info on it, and the advertisements it was based off, on the TVTropes page "Lady Not Appearing in this game")

Folks, blocking EpicX.com isn't blocking the ads. They're using flash ads from a variety of sources, so you can't simply click the link to find the blockable URL. [violet] is making her best guess on blocks based on the information provided from the ad supplier, and that's the best we can do at the moment.

Please, no more "me too" posts, or folks helpfully pointing out that it's EpicX or Call of Roma. We know all that.

No, Evony has the Caucasian girl. This is an Evony clone. At least they're up front about advertising.

Anyways. I was asking so at least try to help.

How exactly do you do this?

And why is it that every medieval-ish and futuristic (including fantasy) MMORPG has big busted women with weapons which are completely irrelevant to the game?

EDIT: Ah. It's the player base..

Goes something like this:
Indonesia
"I finish make Evony 3"
"gud gud put up boobs"
"But no one play anymore"
"PUT UP BOOBS"
"But sir nobody play and we need better grammer"
'Shitty game or not, put boobs"

I know many games that are good and have no boobs. (NationStates, and others), and that is the only reason why I would think they would put up boobs, that or they are mega perverts.

If you've gotten inappropriate advertisements on NS, I suggest taking a pic (Censoring if needed), and putting a link here describing. Otherwise, don't describe ads you got on some other site. Because it's not NS.

Knowing you, it could still be both.

Ok, well when checking for sarcasm, there are a number of questions one should ask about the alleged sarcasm. For instance, does what this guy is talking about actually exist? If it did exist, would it's existence itself be a bit absurd? Does any of this really make sense? Am I getting the feeling that I'm being mocked?
