Valve have caught up with EA on this front then...I think it's sad they dont give gamers the option to opt out of viewing the ads

because they all would, I dont think any one would actually opt to see real time updating ad's that have the potential to take up any sort of resources of the comp and connection and be distracting during gameplay..

However, the worst thing is people will still buy it just the same, despite being ignored over choice.I won't be buying this game, but then i do believe in exercising my choices, so i'll buy an alternative without advertising. STEAM is sh!te, down with STEAM!!!

You can simply paint over them in game anyway in CSS. :P I hope some ads get placed on destructable environments in the future. LoL Blow up them ads.

This is kind of brutal. I don't mind advertising in games when it blends in to the environment (such as putting a BK in a city of a racing game or something) but this just totally stands out and is an eye sore. Hopefully we can spray over top of these! :P
