Whose idea was it to try to fit "BLIZZARD" in a one centimeter box. Literally anything else would be better
Screenshots?
"Blizzard App"

It's not even a name... it's just a generic operation title.

Why was this necessary again...? Because people got "confused"...?

I dont know but I would like to schedule them for a medium scolding followed by a hard scolding.
I'm still going to call it battle.net
In my heart it will always be battle.net
Welcome back to Windows 95.
Blizzard is the only app in my Task bar with name rather then icon.

But it is still called battle.net when I hover over it. Hmm Blizzard on the menu bar.
Blizzard App Launcher doesn't have the same ring to it as Battle.net Launcher.....
What was wrong with battle.net? I thought it was unique. This one is boring.

This is good in a way, I was once asked by my banks cs person what does battle.net do when i questioned something about a refund some time ago.
I hate this change.

Most people do, Blizzard is always wasting time and resources and money changing stuff that doesn't need "fixing" instead of diverting it to elsewhere.
I wonder if we can get them to change it back through sheer refusal to use the new name.
Guys, why does it matter if .net is in the name?

It was superfluous, outdated, and slightly confusing for the App.

The website is still Battle.net.
AFAIK the service is still Battle.net.

Just the name is now "Blizzard App" because its for general use.
more unnecessary changes.

valve don't call steam "valve app."

ea don't call origin "ea app."

ubisoft don't call uplay "ubisoft app."

etc.
Files this under yet another thing Blizzard didn't need to fix, but tried to anyway along with the new DK Death Grip animation
