Overwolf is a bloatware that weighs down systems and only hurts curseforge in the long run. Forcing the consumer of your product to download bloatware only leads to a negative and terrible reputation as you are now mingling with a group known for loss of information, not screening ads and allowing ads that lead to installing viruses and randsomware on pcs, and more. Its not a good idea to coexist with them even if you had to, not that you should especially considering you're now doing what you never did with twitch, where we get a literal ad in the modpack menu screen.
Its unfortunate but I am positive that an alternative to CurseForge in inevitable simply due to the merge. Even if its not as good, it wouldn't be Overwolf and that makes it infinitely better.
