man I'm so sick of switching addon managers, just give Wowup what they need
Smart move but probably too late. TBD
what this dosnt say, is you need to agree to the Overwolf ToS... made it a no thanks for me
I actually love this change, regarding of what many people might say. I use many addons, so the fact that they have made a standalone client for that, is good news to me.
No thanks. I use WoWUp and have removed CurseForge as a provider from it. My sincere hope is that Microsoft comes in and cracks down on companies like this trying to make money off of something that's supposed to be a fun hobby and videogame. Blizzard dropped the ball because they didn't want to be on the hook for supporting third-party addons, so they never made a central hub for them. Meanwhile, Microsoft literally owns GitHub. That's where all addons should be maintained at.With our luck, Microsoft will come in and make things worse and not better, but we can always hope that's not the case.Edit to add: Also, this is an old and obvious pattern: Step 1: Hey guys, here's a standalone client! See, we're not so bad. Step 2 in 2023: We're deprecating the standalone client because it's just not seeing enough use! (Meanwhile we've successfully killed off all the 3rd party updaters because of our easy and lowest common denominator solution so now you're all S.O.L!)Overwolf: Not even once.
Took you a while but at least you've done it.
I keep checking WowUp to see if the updates are matching the ones in CurseForge but theres always a couple needing to be updated on it.
I mean, at least they Finally listened in the end - even if it's too late.
Nice try, Overwolf. Thanks for finally having the courtesy to call it "rain" though.
to bad many people will buy right into Overlwolfs sheme..pitty, i used to like Wolves in general..
Back and forth, back and forth. Stop this bs, ffs.
*me, a regular person that just manually checks and installs updates to addons on a semi monthly basis without an addon manager*:)
i don't understand all this mess. how can one company control the api. is blizzard supporting overwolf? how does overwolf have the rights over the stuff that is made by blizzard. this all is so annoying.
