Release Notes – 107.2

New Game Summary match navigation!

From now on, you can look back on all the games you’ve played with Overwolf on our Game Summary!

Your games have been divided into two categories so you can find the one specific game you’re looking for very easily.

  • A match is a single battle you had in a game. For example, in League of Legends, a match is a single game with its own KDA and picked champion while in Overwatch a match will always happen in a single map (but you may change your hero in the middle).
  • A session is all the gaming you had, from launching the game until closing it. The session drop-down allows you to navigate between your game sessions, keeping up to 10 previous game sessions, each with its own matches.

For more details regarding our Game Summary, you can read our General Game Summary and our Game Summary Folder Size management articles in our Support Knowledge Base.

Changes and Bug fixes

  • New events were added to our Game Event Provider for Dota2. Check our Overwolf devs website for more details.
  • Overwatch events were fixed to enable the capture of your gaming highlights once again.
  • Small fixes were done to our display ads to prevent memory leaks and potential crashes.
  • Fixed social networks login crash issue.
  • More various improvements and bug fixes to meet your gaming needs.

Happy gaming!

Introducing extensions for Twitch!

The Best Way to Watch and Interact on Twitch!

Streamers and viewers are already downloading the newest and latest extensions for Twitch by Overwolf app developers.

Get stat overviews of your favorite streamers on games like LoL and Rocket League. Live stream emotes straight to video. And whatever you do, don’t kill your new Kappa Pet!

Where Can I Find Them?

The extensions are now available for all streamers and viewers! Look for the video overlay to start interacting with them or simply scroll down and look for the interactive panel below the video stream.

Two different types of extensions are available:

  • Panels – These extensions are available below the video stream next to the general information of the streamers.
  • Video Overlays – Interact with these extensions directly in the video stream.

Twitch Extension

Look What’s Coming to Your Next Twitch Stream!

Summoner Info

Get updated stats on your favorite LoL streamer from Twitch without alt-tabbing out. The Summoner Info panel shows your streamer’s current champion, their most played champion based on Mastery score, Runes and Masteries for the current match, PLUS their ranking and a brief summary of their last ranked matches with their current champion.
Learn more about Summoner Info: http://play.overwolf.com/summoner-info/

PUBG Tracker

Players Unknown Battleground Tracker shows real-time streamer rankings in Solo, Duo, and Squad game modes either as a video overlay or in a separate panel. A complete match history is also available so you can follow your favorite streamer as he or she dominates their way to the very top!

Rocket League Tracker

Get updated stats on your favorite Rocket League streamers from within Twitch! The panel relays information on ranked matches and lets you follow their progression and keeps track of their number of wins, saves, goals and shots.

Destiny Tracker

No more “What’s your gear?” spam in the chat! The Destiny Tracker extension by Tracker Network adds a panel to Twitch which displays the streamer’s current gear as well as their progress in the different missions.

Live Emote Reactions

React to the stream by pushing emotes live directly inside the video stream! Place a beautiful flow of live emotes with the other viewers on the video. Size, positioning, and cooldown are all completely customizable by the streamer.

Kappa Pet

Interact with the streamer’s chosen emote in this extension panel. This emote is alive and it responds to love — try interacting with it! The longer the streamer is live, the more the emote will evolve and new options will unlock!  If an emote doesn’t get any attention for a long period of time, it dies.
