    Hey guys,

    I just published my game on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rebubbled.mobile) and people seem happy! :)

    The way I implemented UnityAds is that when you lose lives you watch a reward ad to refill.
    Or wait 1 hour to get a refill.

    Now I started getting emails from people who have no ads to show (due to fill rate, country, etc).

    My question to you is - do you have any creative ideas how to help these players play the game?

    Ideally, I would want to give users 'reward' in case there is no ads to show but I can't know that. Can I?

    I currently can't implement any form of purchasing in Google Play because my country doesn't support Mechant account.

    Thanks for your answer Ostwind!

    Would you please share which network has unity-compatible reward video ads?
    Or something similar?

    Thank you!

    It's also a good idea to have a backup ads provider, as mentioned above Charboost, I would also name Tapjoy. They have video ads, and basically it's similar to Unityads.

    EDIT: oops.. deprecated..

    Thanks Ostwind, I checked chartboost they seem very easy to implement so I will check it out for sure.

    And thanks for the tip DalerHakimov, I will implement the charts just for the sake of having a backup (now that you say it, it makes perfect sense).
