ok!
thats easy !
my experience to get success :
step 1 : make a new type of game (dont clone or if you do, clone with big changes)
step 2 : use cartoon graphics ! and dont make it boring
step 3 : use a nice name (so much important !) (my game name is "Generals war HD" do you remember something ? right you remember c&c generals ! ;) )
step 4 : dont spend alot of time and money to advertise in world instead target just one country >>
for me it was my country "iran" and for you can be usa and ...
for example : if i want to target usa i target this :
ios - usa market - spend some money for advertize or time for sharing my game just for ios platform and usa market and after my game get to the top then i target android in usa and ..
note 1 : make people to rate you : for example i release first version of this game and tell my users if they rate they will get new units and stuff and a better game so they rate it !
note 2 (new experience): don't use ads company's .
note 3 : if you want real money use IAP and make player to buy stuff ! :D

is that enough?!

@mahdi71
And what is the retention rate of your game?
Because it's very wierd that they closed your account without notice.

Accumulating 4k due doesn't sound logical either.
Nither does dropping a profitable account.

was thinking the same thing ...

however chartboost... as any other advertising company... that is not adsense .... will try to "f" u at the first opportunity ... however i dont believe this is the case... 10k-50k installs... considering the app is pretty low quality ... the daily replays are a wild guess of 500 ... generating probably 1 $ a day(calculating he got to pay transaction fees via paypal or other e-wallet which just now a few months back added the app/games taxes ... which are lower then before)... 200+ $ in an account with that game... wold take this friend of ours around 2 100 days giving or take 20 ... however i seen more and more pple from lots of areas... doing this game thing now... but using hidden scripts ... trying to scam the scammers ... they got to know that doesn't work... and if by any chance it does... will not work to many times... if u really want to make money from ur ads... place a bunch of adspace ... and sell the place ur self... control it from a ftp and that is that... no middle man... however nobody likes ads in their games... and in order to get paid via ad view... or hit... the person must see it ... which me as a gamer... i immediately close... or uninstall the app ...the only profitable way as a self publisher to make money is do the game... and have IAP's. ads are not worth it... are penny's on dollars... and u do all the work...


the replays are based on him keeping advertising the app via some platform... so the users can return and play its app.. if he doesn't done it and is still not doing it... then its a miracle he even got those 15k installs, and by now probably the app is dead... not generating any revenue what so ever... you got to understand ... when comes to business.. u got to read all the Terms and Conditions ...u will not make nothing good just by doing the usual "Next Next Yes i agree Next Next Finish"
