Does being a Plus Member hurt developers?
I have always loved playing Kongregate because I know that independent developers get a share of the ad revenue every time I visit.
Now I have always read that this is ad revenue, meaning from when ads appear while I play.
However, becoming a plus member removes said ads.
I’ve known this system to come from Gamestop who already has the plus card for their stores to encourage you buy used games rather than new ones. I already know that to hurt developers, so common sense tells me the Kongregate plus membership would do the same thing.
So if I become a Kongregate plus member, thus removing ads, how would the developers earn anything from my visits anymore?
