Originally, the ads started out pretty harmless, showing a knight and his sword preparing for battle. But apparently that wasn't attracting enough players, so they decided to ditch the knight in favor for a medieval dressed woman with a little cleavage showing. Eventually that "little" cleavage became "a lot more" cleavage.
And then, someone made the decision to just ditch the drawn images and go for hot chicks in tight little tops.
But that wasn't good enough either.
Soon enough, I saw this ad for the game:
Yes, that's right - it's a busty bra-covered torso with matching little panties.
My first thought: "What the hell does that have to do with this game?"
What really drives me nuts is that 1) I see these ads on nearly every other site I visit these days (you can't get away from them!!) and 2) I'm a female - this type of advertising does not appeal to me! I don't want to be checking my facebook or some forum I visit frequently or reading a news story on a news site and see this crap! It's bad enough I have to see commercials with women dressed like this while watching late night tv - I shouldn't be forced to see it while I'm doing my daily web surfing routine!

Does anyone else find these ads obnoxious and distasteful?
