[Warzone] overwolf.exe is blocked by Activision

Related app/team name (optional)
currently in development for a private Lobby Tournament site

Issue Description
overwolf.exe is blocked by Activision on Gamestart

Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce)

  1. Start overwolf
  2. Start Call of Duty Warzone

Impact for my app
:rotating_light: Show stopper - we cant get the score from people. 50 teams would now have to make screenshots from their kills and also placement, this will lead to tons of manual efforts that we can deal with. There is no API support for custom games in warzone.

Do you currently have a workaround?
Not tried renaming overwolf.exe but it looks like the flagged it as „unfair“ so any workaround could lead into an account ban.

My questions/Request
Are you aware of it or do you have any information from Activision? I spent over 6 weeks programming the tournament website in my spare time ans now it seems I can close it before we even really started.

Thanks for your support.

Hi. We are checking it, and I will update you ASAP.



CoD Warzone is currently blocking Overwolf. Warzone is not supported at this stage as we are working on a solution. Feel free to ask here or DM me with any questions.
