Client not updating time
Appears petty because of features you won't use, when the client has streaming, voice chat, social media functionality, and the vast amount of content in Wo W I bet many players don't participate in.
Simply redirecting isn't even likely to work, because there are going to be such things as version checks.
When you install Twitch, it will scan your addons and update them normally.
Your WTF folder should be untouched, which is where all your settings are.
the only clue of anything off at all is that no addons have updates available for a couple of weeks now is there any way to redirect the client to the new servers without having to download twitch?
seems pretty stupid to have to download a streaming program in order to install addons when I've zero interest in streaming the client loads fine for me, reports no issues and when I check for updates it says there aren't any.
You should take some time to go through all the various settings of the client though..
This is basically why DNS records are not updating.They automatically have the permission to use an existing computer account for a domain join without having to reset it in advance.
