Why is this game marked as adult stuff?

I followed a link for the viking game. 


This was the first page (with an half naked women showing side boob) with this text.

"

The most addictive game!

Before you are allowed to enter the #1 Rated 18+ Game we need to ask a couple of questions.

You're lucky, Free registration is still open. Find out whether you qualify to join the most addicted game by answering 3 simple questions. Good luck!"

"Question #1

Are you over 18 years old?"



"Question #2

This game may contain some nudity and/or sex scenes. Can you handle it?"


"Question #3

Due to certain laws, depending on your location, you might have to reach level 10 before you see explicit content. Do you understand?"


Then regardless of your yes or no answers you get to the plarium.com viking war of clans page.

Click Bait.


It is probably a 3rd party advertiser that has a pay-per-click contract with Plarium to drive new player to the game. Unfortunately, this just results in a bunch of non-gamer noobs, creepy sex offender types, and a ton of dead castles cluttering the kingdom. 

This same advertisement pops up on a lot of sites, specifically those that the MPAA likes to shut down ;), and links to many different games. You should send  the relevant details to Plarium's team that handles these types of things.  When in doubt, just CC them all :

Don't want to bring bad news but those are Google's personalized advertisements. It shows you ads according to your page visits.... so if you visit ehm... adult sites, you will see these kinds of ads on your browser. It has nothing to do with the company or the game. I had the similar experience with different games and their ads.

Of course, I´m just disappointed :) 


Jokes aside, I think it'´s hurt the game more then it brings any real players to the game.

They aren't joking ... I don't see any of such "adult" advertising connected with this game ... because no one on this computer goes to such "adult" pages ... someone on your computer has visited such sites and that is why you are getting the advertisements.  It has nothing to do with plarium or this game or this company ... it happens because of a user on your end of the computer.

This is false, I saw this ad on a computer at work with a pretty strict firewall on what we can do, anything close to nsfw is blocked.
