... So now they've started bundling an Anti Virus application with the game launcher?
I thin this is because of the issue that happened with their program running in the backround tht cause many players to end their member ships. This way you can bypass the functionality but if you get caught. You're done!
It seems kinda useful with the news and all but I think it's pretty much pointless. I wont use it, except to check the news every now and then.
A new launch utility has been created to enhance your entry into World of Warcraft! The Blizzard Launcher will provide up-to-date news and important event- and support-related updates. In some regions, the Blizzard Launcher also scans for Trojan viruses and third-party cheat programs and notifies you if it has located any on your machine. In addition to providing you with the benefits of additional anti-virus protection, the scan that the launcher conducts represents another security measure to protect your World of Warcraft account information and gameplay experience. For further details, please go to http://www.blizzard.com/support/wow/?id=aww01907p1.
The AddOn button should now properly show on the character selection screen for players using custom interfaces.
World of Warcraft Client Patch 1.8.2
Fixed a crash in the German client.
The new launcher looks interesting... I'm downloading now. Wonder if it'll be good or just another of blizzards lame attempts at something great...
