The new Launcher and Updater for Mac is Really well done.

I really like the look and feel, quite a bit more than the PC Counterpart

Thx for the compliments. I'd be interested to hear more feedback about the launcher/updater.

Specifically I really like the Current Progress / Overall Progress, its a small thing but it makes the patching experience a lot more clear

Hmm I don't know, maybe I don't get it yet^^(it's quite late here in Germany), but while I find the new look really amazing, I find the Current Progress/ Overall Progress not so clear... Unless of course you would add the old download speed thing with the the already downloaded file volume, than it would be perfect I guess!

Love the Mac launcher. Way better than the PC one.

Found an error though: Udyr has electric balls. He's not Kennen!

I like the launcher too, the overall look is nice, but

PROS:
Really nice, condescend look.
Overall and current progress.
allows you to hit play even when server is unavailable.(instead of using the contra esque code)
picture of a bear on fire. ( they are godless killing machines after all)

CONS:
Can't click on it from the dock or command tab to have it pop up or come to the front.
for me the news links are not clickable.
no link to server status explanations that link to forum posts about the downtime.
Doesn't go away when the pvp.net client is gone, so it eats up more cpu time in the background.
Cannot refresh the server status.

it is a beta and I hope this helps

Thought the launcher had a great look, very streamlined. The only thing is that it'd be nice to see the progress displayed numerically as well, but maybe that's just me.

I like it. It would be fun to have the splash screen rotate images (a different picture can show up each time you launch it).

I like the progress bars. Without a numeric number to go along with it the overall feel is like the xp bar in Everquest 1 (similar colors too!). Makes me want to say DING! when it's done.

I liked the Overall Progress/Current progress bar, but occasionally the overall progress would decrease as the current progress increased. It was a little odd, but nothing game-breaking.
