Adsense kinda sucks

Ran a short Adsense campaign with Google targeting 'gamers'
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Some general information
Impr - Short for impressions. This was the number of times the ad was displayed
CTR - Click-through rate, simply clicks/impr
Display Network only - I didn't run this ad on Google searches, but on webpages that Google deemed relevant

Cost was way too high for what I imagine was very few pledges, but hopefully it got some pledges.

and yes, I'm farming for that Rook piece

Whats an ad, I haven't gotten any of those since 2004 since they're blocked

That would explain the low participation

Ditto. Does adblock simply hide the html element or does it stop it from even loading?

I use noscript and adblockplus, they don't even get a chance to load

I would guess that Google is smart enough to not count times that the load is denied. But maybe not *shrug*
