  1. Hi,



    This is a nice willdone banner :)


    Can I ask you please regarding the images, Why you are not using a (PNG)?





    Hi, Esam


    It's a good question. 


    We are trying to use JPEG images because of their tiny weight. In most cases JPEG image using vector mask has less weight than PNG image with transparency. Even if you use TinyPNG plugin. This becomes especially important for big sizes (300x600 , 580x400 etc).


    As you can see our creatives require much attention to their weight because of complexity and complicated image-filled ideas.

    Keep pushing with inspiration materials! Tanks again.


    We continue to experiment with the banner acquisition and today I want to present you new-old banner-set with A GIRL.
    The idea was born when we saw first screenshots with women tank crew for World of Tanks. We seldom use people pictures for our banners and we had to change it so we decided to test how will people will react to it.
    We had to chose appropriate mechanics for users to play and we stick to the idea of crew skills & perks.
    The overall test results was "really good". But that was flash version.
    Now we present you tweenmax based HTML5 version.
    Please, enjoy: http://cdn2.worldoftanks.com/d_parhimovich/fbatwork/banners/wot/skills_and_perks/

    Hi bannerlovers! Hope you all missed our works. Here the new one...


    Summer time. Simply the best time of the year. You have an opportunity to go out for walking, skating, swimming etc. But what should a World of Tanks fan do, if he (or she) doesn't want to loose that "Victory feeling"? Grab your tablet/phone or notebook and bring the victory with you!


    Preview is here: http://cdn2.worldoftanks.com/d_parhimovich/fbatwork/banners/wot/summer_campaign/


    P. S. Sorry for Russian language. We have only CIS region campaingn for this banner set.

    4X strategies are among our team's beloved games. We were super excited to know that we can be a part of the Master of Orion game revival. This is our input on this project. The banner has classic animations and is non-interactive. We tried to stick visually to the release trailer and stick to the release artwork so all the release marketing campaign to be synergistic.


    Enjoy banner: http://cdn2.worldoftanks.com/d_parhimovich/fbatwork/banners/moo/launch/

    What could be better than showing a game's mechanic in the banner? Especially using project's style and tone. And this is the first time we applied the same idea for both our favorite games: World of Tanks and World of Warships.

  7. regarding facebook, your link takes me to this page first:



    Go to the link you posted above and either rollover it and watch the status bar or copy the link to see that it has facebook as the domain.




    Thanks for the additional info.

    I definitely like your banners and I encourage you to post more here, but I still was hoping that was an actual game element involved as I spent time trying to hit the meter at the right time. It might work to get interactions but perhaps not so much for happy users. Just my 2 cents. 


    First, thanks for notification about my broken link. It was copy-pasted from my FB@Work and I replaced it with correct one.


    Second, thanks for your feedback. This banner is still in QA and our team can make some changes in it. I'll try to push variable final result!


    Also tomorrow I'll show some more interesting stuff for all banner lovers!

  8. The banner looked very nice but I did not notice any difference in the result based on what the meter level was when I cast.

    I felt kind of tricked. Is there a goal or a way to win that I am missing?


    fyi, this page seems to bypass the facebook warning: http://cdn2.worldoftanks.com/d_parhimovich/fbatwork/banners/wows/fishing/


    Hi, Carl.


    We used first frame as Eye Catcher for being involved in interaction. There is no result dependancies with distance bar. The only result is unexpected transition to the warship. 


    Sorry, but I don't understand your message about Facebook. Could you give me a bit more detailed information?

  9. Awesome! 


    How much time did it take to develop this ad? Could You please describe Your workflow in a few words? As I see, this is a hand coded canvas with multiple DOM canvas layers. Did You make other size mutations? 



    Hi, Oliver!


    Our team has a bit complicated flow:

    1. idea, based on targeted audience

    2. draft storyboard + interactive description

    3. final storyboard design + copywrites

    4. animation & programming (3-5 days)

    5. QA

    6. resizes design

    7. resizes animation & adaptations (20 resizes only for Google Adwords)

    8. resizes QA

    9. texts localization (35 languages)

    10. all banner resizes localization (20 * 35 = 700 banners in one set only for Google)

    11. banner localizations proofreading


    Most of these processes are doing simultaneously with different teams. Banner localizations are automated with self-written tool (adobe air). 


    We prefer pure canvas + JS + TweenMax because of great banner weight control, great cross-browser capabilities and good performance.

    Are there any fishing fans among forum users? We have something interesting for you!

    This banner targets special narrow audience of our potential World of Warships players such as fishing lovers.

    Let it be such kind of a test that will show us whether it works or doesn't.

    Target audience: Males, 30+, fishing is their beloved hobby
    Message: Hunt the ocean's biggest game

    P.S. Never underestimate an old man with a BOAT.

    Hi, banner lovers! 

    I want to share some beautiful banner stuff from me & Wargaming.net team.

    We work on pure JS <canvas> and our creatives are <150 Kb weight and Google Adwords adopted. Of course we use TweenLite in our banners because we love it.

    Hope you enjoy this links:




    I you like this two just ask here in the comments for new ones and I show much more.

  12. Yeah we just found out today that AdWords is now allowing Google-hosted GreenSock. And yes, that means you should use the urls that DoubleClick is providing for AdWords. This is what we have been told directly from AdWords.


    We are thrilled to about this news and plan on making an official announcement.

    WoW! That is amazing news. Carl, could you give me that links for doubleclick or explain how to find them?

  13. Hi all!


    I have some strange error with ie 11 (may be earlier versions too).


    Here is a simple example of my code:

    var gfx_obj = {};
    gfx_obj.r1 = 1;
    gfx_obj.r2 = 1;
    gfx_obj.r3 = 1;
    gfx_obj.r4 = 1;
    function appearGFX(num)
    	TweenLite.to(gfx_obj, 1.2, {["r"+ num]:5, ease: Power3.easeOut});

    So this gives me error in IE only (all other modern browsers is OK).

    Screenshot of error is attached.


    Any thoughts how to fix it?
