    I'm against it. Is it going to be like Uplay or something like that crap. I only play WoW when it comes to Blizzard games. So I want my launcher do be WoW themed and I don't see why I need a blizzard launcher when I can just go to WoW instantly.

    You were referring to having the launcher not remember you which could leave you open to a MITM attack rather than saving your password in case your computer is stolen. I'm saying MITM are not a reality with such a short timeframe. So if you're paranoid then don't save the password like someone suggested.

    ...no, the person who posted was talking about having their computer stolen which still logs you on even if your IP changes, effectively meaning a physical theft could result in compromising their WoW account. The solution to prevent it is to force it to put in your password/authenticator every time...which defeats the purpose of convenience people keep throwing around. Please don't tell me what I'm talking about. I can put my own words in my mouth, thank you.

    No, it's about not trusting the program. If you really don't want to use the launcher you're not forced into using it. You weren't ever forced to use it even when WoW wanted to download patches; you could actually make WoW itself download it in its incredibly stupid way.

    Yeah not sure what there is to complain about, I like it. The only thing I find annoying is when you're chatting with a friend and it doesn't notify you when he chats back. Like when you're watching a movie in another window, nothing pops up, so a lot of times I would miss their chat by like an hour. I wish they would add some sort of notification when they reply to you like a sound or a pop up window.

    Well, I have a problem with online-required games in general.
    The new launcher could use a "Login Invisible" or "Appear Offline on Login" option.
    The first tile could also relay important news instead of being blizzard ads.

    "New Party Mount!" --> "Summer sale 50% off" Nothing about the summer/fire whatever event that just started ingame.

    The fact people are worried about people having access to their WoW account if their computer is stolen is mind boggling though. People don't steal your computer for your video games. They steal it for your identity or to pawn the damn thing. No one says score!!! I pawned this $3000 notebook and their wow account is still logged in.

    Oh totally. I agree completely. That's why I said I was just playing devil's advocate and discussed varying degrees of mental health/problems/situations that we cannot begin to understand.

    Why? A nice screen telling you that you are in a queue is far better than getting an error over and over.
    But if you hate the launcher, go ahead and run wow.exe directly and sit there hitting that error.

    Come on now. Anything that saves us effort must be dumbing down the login process.
