    Not a fan of the Twitch app, but going from that to A̶d̶w̶a̶r̶e̶Overwolf is a change from bad to worse. I'd rather switch to CurseBreaker or any other lite update client with barebone functionality.

    Twitch app: 3 clicks, done and closing.

    Overwolf: close 3 ads, decline premium offer, decline donation begging, update every single add on, get malware andSpyware for free.

    Nice..

    As long as we can fetch the URLs of curseforge and the download links to addons, nothing will change. Why do people use these spyware software shit anyway? Like the horrible twitch client? Just use scripts or third party addons to update your addons. It is not that hard.. I play WoW on Linux and I 've no problem updating my addons since years, and I do not use such crappy apps. (even if I wanted to, they don't run on Linux anyway)

    Soooooo... Once more, we are forced to switch to a new app that can update the 100+ addons we have installed.

    Well, it cannot be worse than Twitch.

    exactly, dont understand how people can be happy because they think the twitch client was bad, overwolf is 100 times worse just so people know lol

    overwolf is infamous for being extremly adware heavy, and its not the first time they have been hit with malware/spyware ads on the app so whatever you do dont click a single add lol or you will have all your information stolen by some russian hackers

    overwolf litteraly had their app compromised several times already and people are praising this change because they think the twitch client is bad

    I've never tried this approach, if you know some easy step-by-step or already have a good shell script that do the trick I'm very interested in it

    Would be nice to have a look at some of those scripts to be honest. I use Linux at work so Im pretty confident I could create some of my own but since I still use Windows for gaming and has been ages since a wrote any Windows scripts.

    How would you rate WoW performance on Linux compared to windows? And how do you install it? Wine? Lutris? I know in the days of old there was the opengl flag on the launcher and ran better than windows back in wotlk days. Is that still a thing?

    Also, what other thrid party addons are there to update mods?

  11. #131
    Still use WowMatrix from time to time. There is certainly less adds and it's pretty no nonsense in that you load it up, click update all and you're done. Plus it's portable so no install.

    Might be worth a go for those not happy with Overwolf.

    Do you really think that overwolf is better? At least twitch let you open it, click on one button, click on update all and finished. Close the client and it's over. Overwolf is adware+spyware paired with functionality. Even better when you also get some malicious apps.

    I take the twitch client over overwolf every time.

    never had an issue with twitch... whats up with it?

  14. #134
    twitch client is trash... old curse were superior in every way.

  15. #135
    So, in other words the only reason why i used this, which was an easy update opportunity with my already existing Amazon Prime account is just gone now?

    ...why would i use their shit? Also who the fuck likes Overwolf?

    Oh, you have no idea lol. Literally two days ago they had a mini-scandal because one of the ad providers they were using had an ad that put a literal virus onto peoples' computers, and that's not the first time they've had issues with malware ads. This is going to be a fucking disaster.

    This. Also I don’t get what was so bad in Twitch client. Open it, go to mods, click wow image, click update all, close Twitch client, gg.

    No ads, no spyware, no pop ups, nothing.
