World of Warcraft Mods and addons is moving from the Twitch client. Twitch sold the CurseForge client to Overwolf, therefore, Overwolf is expanding to include in-game mods in its apps. Yesterday, Uri Marchand, CEO, and Co-Founder of Overwolf hosted an AMA on Reddit. He answered questions related to the move and how it’s going to impact popular games like World of Warcraft, League of Legends, and Minecraft.

Overwolf allows 3rd party creators to develop, grow, and monetize in-game apps for PC games. Overwolf has about 70 employees. In their announcement, they linked to a Youtube video which explains how the Overwolf app will work. CurseForge isn’t going away and will become a part of the Overwolf family. The app will have advertisements. Overwolf is pledging 3rd party creators will make 50 percent more financially by 2022. Overwolf is considering allowing users to opt-out of advertisements without payment.

Check out the Youtube video below to see how the Overwolf app will work. Also, let’s examine the AMA and see how Overwolf will affect our favorite games.

How Will Everything Be Transitioned To Overwolf?

Mods and addons on Twitch should be transferred over automatically. Updating your mods and adding new mods should work the same as they do now. Overwolf is going to add enhancements to the program. So they’re planning to build upon Twitch’s coding.

If you have ideas to share with the Overwolf team, they’re asking for users to kindly check out the Overwolf Discord channel. They’ll be keeping everyone informed. So the Overwolf team has set-up their Overwolf roadmap on Trello to keep everyone in the know.

During the AMA, many questions were focused on the Overwolf app. Some users were concerned that the app doesn’t run smoothly. Many were also worried that the Overwolf app would drain resources. As a result, users mentioned malicious Apps. But, there was also worry about Overwolf needing to run in the background, in order to use the CurseForge client.

Some users questioned if Overwolf could open the API (application programming interface) so that alternative clients could be developed. But, during the AMA, u/Overwolf_Shai, Software Engineer, gave a response regarding the API questions:

User Data Concerns

Overwolf is planning to include support for PC and Mac in four months. They’ll be developing support for Linux afterward. They also listed their CurseForge newsletter for anyone interested in learning more about the transition.

Apparently, a former employee of Overwolf’s left a Glassdoor review claiming that the company tracks user data 24/7 and makes money off of their data. The person asking the AMA question wanted to know if Overwolf was lying by omission.

Uri Marchand, CEO, and Co-Founder of Overwolf responded to this question with proof that the former employee was seeking revenge, and that the company wasn’t selling user data.

Soon we’ll be venturing to the Shadowlands. Be sure to pre-order the prequel novel Shadows Rising by Madeleine Roux on Amazon.com.
