    Am I the only one who is constantly being spammed these sorts of ads in the game?

    Did you install from the Play Store, or from somewhere else? Is it dumping you into the browser before showing you that popup?

    It was installed via Google Play, no it doesn't take me to a browser. But then again I don't tap on it, I tap in an area it doesn't block (drew a blank on the word I wanted to use, hopefully the substitute word works or at least gives you an idea of which word I was looking for).

    I did also have multiple screenshots attached to this when I typed it up, however after posting it only one screenshot decided to display itself. (hopefully the one gives a rough idea as to what I see) Also I did contact the customer service/support team, however the way they have it set up there wasn't an appropriate category to file it under. (Unless it does come under one of them, so I probably filed it under the wrong category.)

    It's strange--that is a classic annoying browser popup ad. Instead of trying to contact Google about this, I'd email the Modern Combat devs: android.support@gameloft.com. Show them the screenshot, and see if they're aware that their app is serving up shady ads like this one.

    I didn't contact Google about it, I contacted Gameloft about it

    Oh sorry--when you were talking about the categories to file it under, I immediately thought of Google's help site.

    Nah, Gameloft asks you to fill out a bunch of stuff and one section of it is category.

    For this game in particular you only get the following as categories to list your issue under:

    I guess I'd pick Questions/Suggestions/Feedback or Crash/Freeze/Loading Issues.

    I chose to label it under Questions/Suggestions/Feedback. Then I had to choose a subcategory, I choose to label it as a question (the other subcategories were suggestions and the last one was feedback).

    Turns out Gameloft doesn't respond to questions, you have to go to their FAQ to see if they answered it.
