The name "Overwolf" instills a sense of dread. Not a good thing for a service such as this. I propose they change their name to "Cuddlykitten" to appear less threatening.

Oh wow it's like close to the best possible marketing for mmo's in a digital world. It's sort of like secret world online, but instead of making a 2nd rate game they allow people to make secondary facebook accounts or groups for communication with other gaming buddies.

Whatever happened to the RoM browser based version of the game that was suppose to be playable from Facebook?

@Dianoga4 Frogster said they hoped to have the Facebook version done by the end of summer. They showed off a running version of it at a past German game convention, so it's most likely been delayed.

I don't like Facebook, but I'd be more for a controlled place that is connected to a single MMO and promotes features of that MMO.

Still, they can go overboard. I feel some people are overblowing the Facebook/social thing; yes, it can be neat and useful, but I personally haven't seen anything I can't live without or whatnot; there are not too many outside things that help you in the core social world, unless you want to check on armor scores or IM guildmates during work/school for tonight's plans (You can do that by email or already established IM programs).

Facebook is still about promotion and doesn't help you game in a few MMOs (not talking about Facebook games themselves). There is no way to earn gold, craft, or whatever new thing outside the game...and most people tend to just log into such games and not bother socializing or texting.
