Performance is massively inferior versus 1.0.50, with jerky motion in all camera views. There is also game instability on certain setups, including avatar flickering at high frame rates. I’ve previously posted about this here: New launcher (1.0.51) causing stutter on Windows systems
Please reconsider the enforced update and/or investigate this issue. As things stand you’re making my experience substantially worse.
To easily replicate and see the difference, fan view someone with the overhead camera (9) and compare how much stutter there is on the new versus old launcher. Smoothness of the game is very poor on the newer versions, irrespective of frame rate and setup (I’m at 95fps on an adaptive sync monitor). To see the flickering, simply disable vsync and use full screen mode.
