    The client is supposed to autoupdate everything by itself without any interaction. It doesn't. That is the complaint. Yes, it does still update addons, but no, that is not enough and I have every right to complain about it. Curse Client did its job, Twitch isn't good enough.

    "Oh, but it's free, you're not allowed to complain about free shit."

    Fuck off with that bullshit. I paid for Curse premium but it was ripped away. You'd be fucking pissed if something you paid for became free then turned to shit.

    Yeah the recent changes are annoying. I have a ssd named g: and hard drives named E: and F:. It was defaulting to the beta installation I had on drive E: every time. Even after deleting folder on E it still acts like no game is installed because it looks for E before finding the game on G. It auto switches now which is nice. But I've noticed that it doesn't remember sorting between sessions.

    They really did mess up something that wasn't broken. And for those saying its twitch and they are not about addon's. Well it has been part of the app for several games. It is as much of the addon as streaming. The game store and addon's are a part of twitch as anything else.

    I have well over 100 different addons.. Checking for updates manually is impossible.
    I've been using a little program called WowMatrix for ages for this purpose. The only reason I have the twitch app is that Discord was down for raid one night so we tried to use the Twitch app's voice coms until Discord came back up.

    WowMatrix is lightweight (that's literally it's only purpose) and is also very quick to actually fetch updated info. It has hiccups every once in a while, but almost always works perfectly.

    SIDENOTE EDIT - I just fired up the twitch client out of curiosity and this is the first time it actually recognized my addons for WoW on the first try. Maybe it's just anecdotal, but I've always had problems when I tried to use the client for updated my addons. That said, I still have no intentions of using it for this purpose. I'll just keep it around for those emergency scenarios where Discord is mysteriously down for some reason.

    Twitch actually recently removed its voice feature entirely. Whatever server you guys had up is gone.

    Didn't WoWMatrix die some 8 years ago?

    You know what, I take it back. The new update doesn't work as well. Sometimes it fails to load my mods at all and I have to restart it. Poorly written software.

    Whilst I'm not 100 % sure the add-on library of Minion is as extensive as Twitch's, I highly recommend this lightweight, user friendly addon management program.

    I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned before.

    To all of you saying, adapt, be glad its free, it's only two clicks.

    I used to pay for Curse premium to update everything in a single click and i would gladly pay again, however this is just advertisement that's in your face where the addon part has become an afterthought. The client was bought to promote twitch and its streamers, both things that i care very little for. Their client struggles with being functional for what it originally intended to do. Adding games doesn't always work and same goes with installing addons.

    If there's an alternative i would most likely swap, if there is a way to block all streams in the client i would most likely do it.


    Also there is an option to set addons as the first page on launch. Doesn't get rid of all the other issues but at least there's that. Means i don't have to look at some attention whore every time i open up the client.

    I block all the ads so I don't care about that. You can set it to go to mods when it opens, but the old version used to go to WoW addons specifically, which saved a click. Slightly annoying but again, not a big deal.

    What is a big deal is how it just plain doesn't work half the time.

    All others I found on Google were dead and documentation is non-existent, but it looks promising.

    Yes, it's really annoying. Not only does is not start in the mod tab, it also starts in the featured tab and most annoyingly had those videos in autoplay (that seems to have changed in the last days, though). And sometimes it does not find my wow and/or updates anymore.

    I get it that the service costs money to maintain and as a company they want to earn money and we can just be happy that they even offer that service, but I am really close to deinstalling it. Then I just script it to simply download my installed addons, ignoring if I already have the latest addon version.

    I stopped using wowmatrix many years ago when my wow account was hacked via some malware that was in it.

    You can configure it to startup in the mods tab in the preferences. It will not start in WoW mods, but you just need to click on WoW and you're there.

    Not finding WoW and updating addons though, that's a real problem as that is what nearly every single user of this application uses it for. The update sucks.

    So *your* main purpose of the app is supposed to be everyone's main purpose for the app? Narcissistic much?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I guess my twitch app is bugged. I went to settings and told it to open straight to mods when i launch the app and set the max number of simultaneous downloads to max.

    Now, for some reason, it opens straight to mods and when i click "update all", it starts updating everything at the same time. Definitely broken.

    It was THE ONLY purpose of the program, before Twitch bought it, and should have remained the primary focus, even though a lot of useless features were added... Nothing have really changed, with latest update.

    Except it's horrible now.

    There is a second setting where you can configure which game it should show, so you can configure it to directly show WoW mods after the start.


    What I'm missing right now is:

    • A way to show the addon list in a more compact way (to have more addons visible at the same time)
    • A "Release type" column so I can quickly check that setting for all of my addons.
