The only 2 reasons I look at the launcher on a typical visit are to see if a friend is online and to be able to easily see all the options for the game I have selected.
I rarely really look at the middle stuff unless I’m expecting some news I want to look for. I certainly don’t want it replacing one of the 2 things I actually am there for.
This tiny “Last Played” button is neither handy nor wanted.
Please revert to how it was before.
If your middle section isn’t interesting enough for people to be using it, making it even bigger is not going to help.
Edit to add: I see now that if I select my game from my favorites it takes me back to what I’m looking for. And so far it seems to keep that selection if I close and re-open the launcher. But it’s still a step more than before that seems completely useless.
I couldnt agree more. This new beta app does nothing to make information easier to read, in fact it does the opposite and increases the clutter 10 fold.
If there is not a way to disable all of the spam about the games I have no interest in and only display games I am interested in, so that information is easily readable within a cursory glance, then I can guarentee that I will stop looking at any of it and just hit the play button.
Surely that is not the intended goal…at least that isnt what the posted goal was.
Edit> As an example, I have news about Call of Duty, Overwatch and Diablo 4 cluttering my screen ( and that is after clicking on the wow icon and filtering a great deal of things out) I dont care about those games. You have my interest for probably less than 10s. If I dont see a posting that grabs my attention before then…you lost me, and I never scroll through pages of things looking for something of interest.
I agree with this. I know what I played last, and if I want to look at the shop or news about one of the games I know where to find it. Putting extra garbage on the launcher doesn’t make it more user friendly, and frankly makes me less likely to open the launcher than I already am. Both of these either need an option to hide them or need to be disposed of all together.
Can’t agree more, the new home screen showing your previously played games and a bunch of ads is very ugly and inconvenient, i’m uninstalling the beta client until an option is put in to choose if you want to use the new home screen or not
I don’t need a last played window, I’m fully aware of what I lasted played. I don’t need a home screen full of a bunch of games I’m never going to play, I don’t need ads shoved down my throat. BDA used to be clean and sleek just how I like it, now it’s a cluttered mess, literally went to standard mode because I couldn’t stand to look at the BDA, while on that subject standard mode is setup how the BDA used to be setup. Again how I like it. I’m not sure if you’re aware, but you seriously don’t have to change your launcher, like ever. Specially if your customer base is telling you not to. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. You have given us a bunch of options, with no option to remove them I might add, that no one asked for. So stop wasting resources on a launcher that wasn’t broken and focus on what actually makes you money, the games. Seriously, you stop force feeding us ads and make good games we’ll hand you money hand over fist. You keep down this path, well, you’ll just fade away and be a cliff note in history.
