WoW Companion App 2.0, no Legion

Mobile Bug Report
Count me in as another player who wants to see Legion functionality accessible in the WoW app. Since everything was built and working perfectly, it should be pretty trivial to add an expansion toggle setting, no?
+1 Removing legion functionality greatly reduced any plans to make alts. I used my boost and will never buy one from blizz. Please add this back into the app, not everyone is playing current content.
Also came to the forum to see if there was a way to still access the legion content in the app. It’s going to take so long to complete the 5 missions in the class hall quest lines now :(
Please add legion back into the app!
Necro'd, there's such a lack of foresight I wonder if they remember to wash their hands after potty. If you're to make us grind dead content to access the arguably biggest selling point of this "expansion" at least keep the lights on. I'm talking about this, lfr and lfd accessibility for legion.
+1 currently going through legion on an alt and would like to be able to look at app to see when legion invasions are going on and I'm not near a computer so I know how much time I have to get back on before its gone
Yeah, I was hoping they would of kept past Legion stuff on there. Damn.
It's almost like tying BfA Allied races to Legion and forcing new and returning players to grind outdated content was a terrible idea. I guess I kind of get that they wouldn't want to support previous expacs with their app, but their current expansion's selling point of Allied races require it.
The good news (such as it is) is that Blizz acknowledges this is an issue.

Below is a list of known issues for the updated 2.0 WoW Companion App. I will update it if more issues are discovered:

General
  • The game will reconnect require a reconnect if you switch focus off the app.
  • Android: If English is one of your input languages, the app may default to English regardless of phone language.
  • Legion content is currently no available through the mobile app.
If it's on a list, they can't hide from it (unless they remove it from the list). It's just a question of when and how they choose to address it.
Add legion back! This was not a cool movement at all...

In fact they could easily do in the same app, a way for you to see draenor, legion and BFA contentes, i don't know why they don't. But remove Legion already just like "No one has alt characters and this is not going to be missed at all, and for no good reason replacing everything with BFA things." instead of creating 2 diferent apps, or two diferent sections in the same app was such a dumb non-sense movement.
Yes please restore Legion functionality. I'm already stuck at the stupid Legion mission bottleneck in my class quests. Don't force me into playing your mobile game system AND then remove mobile functionality.

What's going on over there in Irvine. It's amateur month this expansion...
Who makes tgese idiotic decisions at Blizz to remove legion WQ and Mission access from the app even thou the damn allied races are locked to old content and missions can help grind the rep a bit faster.

Dumbest god damn devs lately.
FWIW, I haven’t upgraded the companion app on my iPad to BFA and am still able to do Legion missions but of course can’t do BfA missons.

And that would have been the way to do it, but a lot of folks set their mobile devices to automatically upgrade everything at the app store. That's a choice (usually the default, actually) you don't often regret, except for cases like this.
If Legion can't be "added back" into the current Mobile app, then please just release a new companion app for Legion content only.

And the Auction House..??

I've speculated they could do that, probably very easily from a technical perspective (dig out the old source code, recompile, package up as a new app, post in stores). But....
And the Auction House..??
They deep-sixed the auction house app specifically to reduce the number of apps they need to support. So that argues pretty persuasively against (A) adding a Legion-specific app, or (B) adding an AH app.

I don't trust the mobile devs' freedom to schedule and budget relatively big development like that when they can't even release meaningful fixes to the current app.

Truth -- juggling bandwidth is always an issue.

Just speaking for myself, but the map in the mobile apps have added zero value for me. Maybe they look pretty and are properly responsive, but I'd be fine turfing it for other functional features for my character(s).

Again, just me.
Is Legion functionality ever coming back? It's November now, and still no word from Blizzard? At least let us know if you even ever consider putting that back in. It's a PITA to level alts without the Legion Companion app.
