    Why is there a launcher?

    I have searched the forum, a couple of negative threads and some positive threads on the new launcher...
    But no one really asked WHY???
    The launcher comes up and you still have to click play? why do you think i opened the launcher?
    The launcher is full of advertising stuff and updates and what not, not bad... but then you come in the game and you still see the makers logos and stuff and a daily announcement, which by the way shows up numerous times a day as you restart smite? not really daily.

    Either get rid of the launcher, or get rid of all the other stuff in game that no one even looks at.
    You guys just added more clicks to me made before you can play...

    I think the launcher's main reason of existence is checking for updates, downloading and installing them.

    This. Makes sure all that enter the lobby have the latest version.

    What? You mean your lazy butt has to click one more thing before you spend hours clicking? Oh what misery. What terrible cruelty.
    It's got a purpose. It makes sure everything is up to date, working right, and applies updates when needed. Suck it up and just accept the click.

    Im pretty sure theres an option in settings that skips the launcher if no updates are needed. Go take a look.

    Because why not.

    A launcher is there in case of any updates that are needed, to show latest news on the game and because it looks more professional imo.

    But hey, people cry over nothing now-a-days.

    All multiplayer games have a launcher, it's just some of them are more disguised than others, to the point where the launcher just looks like a loading screen to the game.
