You know, reading the article title and looking at the Picture, I thought Allods copied WoW's "Deathwing" and maybe a giant-flying-insect-winged-reptile-Wolf" big-baddie in their game!

And then I read the article and was mistaken!

Reading: It's Fundamental!

@Space Cobra
That is obviously a giant tyranid/zerg beast in the astral sea.

How does Overwolf compare to more established clients such as Raptr, Xfire?

@(Unverified) read the TOS. They probably own your chat, read your chat and sell your chat.

@(Unverified) I cannot comment on Overwolf's ToS, but I use the program, when playing Runes of Magic, all the time.

Compared to others, I find it simpler and more straightforward. It's smaller and just does a few simple things without adding clutter.

It's still a beast, when trying to record video, but for other simple stuff like bringing up a web browser, Twitter feed or Facebook feed, it's just one or two easy clicks of the mouse.

I like Xfire, but if I have it running, it is just not that easy to intuitively snap open different social websites.

Overwolf is not a chat client. It has widgets for other chat clients, that you can bring up, like, MSN, Skype, Facebook and Twitter. Unless they added a new feature, it does not have its own chat interface.

I like and use other services, but for quick and easy access to an in-game web-browser, access to my Twitter and Facebook feeds, I use Overwolf, all the time.

Still, I'm sure others, who are used to Xfire, may prefer the features that it offers.

How is this game now?

See I'd much rather have a fix so that it goes fullscreen again the first time I alt-tab back to Allods.

I like the functionality that Overwolf brings to a game, but until they do something about an AIM plugin, the application is mostly useless to me as far as chatting is concerned.

Sure, I'll use it to quickly browse Twitter and Facebook and even mess around with Skype when the mood hits me, but 90% of my friends are on AIM and I'm rather sick of having to alt+tab all the time I want to talk to one while leveling some tradeskill or other.

Because why would they want to fool around with the buggy hassle of a browser gateway, when they can integrate the spyware directly into the game.
