So everyone knows about the new Minecraft launcher. In my opinion this was a horrible move. It's ugly and pointless. And it just wastes space on out computers downloading an entire new launcher. Why not just keep the old one? The new launcher also makes modding a lot harder. I've been playing Minecraft since Alpha 1.2.5. Minecraft has just going up and down in the updates, but this is a major down. Worse than any other update in my honest opinion. If they could get rid of the new launcher everything would be just fine.
Well that's my opinion on it. What is everyone else's stand on it?
On a scale of one to invading Russia in the winter, how bad of an idea do you think it is?
The new launcher is a vast improvement in my opinion. While it isn't aesthetically pleasing at the moment, Dinnerbone has confirmed the launcher will look better in the near future.
The ability to downgrade and upgrade without third-party programs is fantastic, and the ability to change the directory in which your game files are stored is even better. I have my game files stored in my Google Drive folder, which allows me to have automatic access to my worlds, servers, and mods no matter which computer I'm using or where I am.
