Update the new Launcher UI so that the Ads are smaller and with an option to close after a few seconds.

The Ads in the new launcher take up HALF of the screen and no option to close them without paying. I get why you are using ads, but come-on, that is WAY TO BIG. I mean... HALF of the screen??? It makes it nearly impossible to search for mods/modpacks.

    ads take up half of screen. wanting us to be a member while this pandemic is going on asking for money to fix it by membership really sucks. we are struggling to get by and anything extra no matter how little it is

    I voted for this not because ads should be closed, but simply the layout. Im all for ads that help support the people creating content, but the ad is massive and it creates a lot of dead space above it. either make use of the space or make it smaller.

    @Grayson, no I have the same issue, overhalf is taken up with the game's art and right now there's no way to "subscribe" like it says or the ads so what's the fucking point of taking up so much space for this "app" that has literally a quarter of the features of the Twitch one it's replacing in 9 days.

    Overwolf really screws up shit tbh, never liked the company since their overlay in Team Speak would crash games and get people banned for using it.

    I think that this might be a problem with your resolution. The ads on mine barely take up a quarter. Sure, they could be smaller, but at least they aren't being intrusive, they just put the box off to the side where the content ISN'T.
