On November 24, the game finally gets underway and hordes of heroes set out to explore the Shadowlands in WoW. Most of these heroes rely on the help and support of one addon or another. This can range from complete interfaces to tiny bits of help. But what most addon users have in common is the fact that they use an app or client to keep the addons updated. The Twitch client, which used to work with CurseForge, was probably the most common one. However, this will soon lose the mod tab and will then no longer offer WoW addons. Instead, the CurseForge app will be used.
To get all the data on their own servers, however, the services of the app will have to rest for some time. This does not mean that you will not be able to download addons there. But it means that the authors can't update their addons. And that would have been the case in the week of the WoW Shadowlands release. A worse timing is hardly possible, given the fact that at the launch of an expansion usually many updates are necessary, because all sorts of changes and not everything could be tested on the beta servers.
But now the operators have adjusted their schedule.
- On 25.11 only the "new project moderation" stops. So no new addons can be uploaded by the authors. All new addons will be checked and released only from 30.11.
- From 11/25 to 11/29 the moderators will work extra shifts to quickly process and release updates of existing addons.
- From 30.11 (one week after release) CurseForge will then go into "Read-Only" mode. From there on, only downloads will be possible until the move is complete.
- How long it will take until the move is complete and operations return to normal is not yet known. However, it is expected that everything will be back to normal on December 3rd and that the addons can be updated again.
