I am happy with this. I do not like the Twitch client and have been experiencing bugs regarding my mod experience recently.
Having twitch client was so handy, especially with twitch prime! I guess I will download the new client, but reluctantly.. Would be great if it could include the elvui updates, wink wink ;)
Nice I can finally uninstall the Twitch client
Overwolf still exists? I'll be damned.What a strange move.
As much as I dislike the Twitch client, this is still disappointing to see, because it feels like I have to have it just to keep my WoW addons and Minecraft Mods up to date. Manually updating when you have 50+ addons or multiple minecraft modpacks is too painful. I've had Overwolf in the past, hopefully it's a better and more stable client nowadays. I am glad to see that they're more interested in the developer payment system though! Non-intrusive ads are okay with me!
BuT Overwolfs overlays were garbage and crashed more then Discord...
I hate it, I don't want to have to install yet another launcher to manage my mods, whats worse is this company is known for selling user data.
I have no idea what Overwolf is but moving away from Twitch is always a good move.
This is very disappointing, I like the twitch client, and overwatch client always felt so bloated, oh well, it is what it is :S
Wish blizzard had its own client for addons like when you open battle net you click a tab to manage your addons why isnt this a thing they dont want to spend money i guess ?
Good!Can't get much worse than it already is!The Twitch app is a bloated piece of garbage that for no reason hogs all bandwidth to load streams and god knows what else just because you wanna update some addons!
So we will have extremely laggy app instead of something much more functional, nice.I was so glad when i uninstalled Overwolf, because i didn't play Hearthstone so much anymore (deck tracker), and Add-on updates via Twitch were so easy and effective to do.
I'm torn - I despise the Twitch client; it's slow and buggy, so I'm happy to see it's going away from Twitch. However, seeing that Overwolf has had issues with data privacy, I'm hesitant to fully celebrate this as a win.
Wouldn't it be nice if - after 15 years - Blizzard offered their own hosting for addons? Maybe even integrate it into the game itself? Make it simpler?How many third party applications do we use on a daily basis to help us play the game? Wago, twitch, raidbots, warcraftlogs, wowprogress, raider.io, wipefest...And not one of these services is too difficult for a multi-billion dollar company to implement.
Disgusting, Overwolfs practices when it comes to peoples data should be criminal, and I am very disappointed in this move; I wholeheartedly support that creators should be paid for their work, but I will not support such an awful platform. I will permanently move to just using wowinterface now for all my addon needs.
