With the last major update, a new button that reads 'Free Gems Now' showed up by the map. When you click on it it says 'Earn Gems when your friends register, by watching videos, or completing offers!' with three buttons 'Invite Friends', 'Watch Videos'. 'Complete Offers Now!'.

 

Whenever I click on any of the buttons, I get this screen:

Not quite as dramatic as a blue screen of death, but not useful either. Not sure if it's because of Adblock or what, but thought I'd give you a heads up. 

 

On the Thinkpad, using Chrome.

I got the same,

and no way to come back to the game - I had to refresh.

I didn't think about Adblock: I'll try to shut it down, but it can be another extension, or Chrome itself...

consideration counts!

i think you should consider the people trying to use these "free gems now" option because i became a victim of it too. this could be a bad/negative image to School of Dragons so I hope you can work it out right away. with these gems, who knows? you guys might be helping others who wants to buy something but it is gem related product, so yeah. hope you fix this as soon as possible. thanks!

So this is almost the same problem...

When I try to watch the videos, it will usually work for a while, but after a few videos I will have the same problem as ickaimp, with the slight variation that there will be a large black box on the screen where the video player is supposed to go. After that, I'm stuck on the screen and have to refresh; Esc doesn't work.

 

As I'm watching the videos, usually there will be an earn more button that you can press to go back to the main game, but when I get a video without one and then try to watch another, I get the screen. This happens after about three or four videos.

 

I'm running a Dell with Vista and using Firefox.

Hi, vex. Try checking any ad/pop-up blockers on your browser. We've noticed this issue occurs when the ad/pop-up blocker is activated so perhaps yours becomes activated after watching a few videos? Please let me know if this is the case. Thank you.
