Why would you need the Steam overlay anyway?
And if you want to report to your friends what you are playing, then just add the launcher or use anything else and rename it to "Dreadnought". Not that this is important either.
I would like to use the steam overlay when things get boring. Waiting for matchmaking? I can use the overlay to browse reddit. Maybe I want to look up a loadout or see what a specific item does. Secondly, almost all my gaming friends are on steam, and it's easier for me to chat to them while I play. Borderless might work too, but that's not always available for all games, so I choose to use steam wherever possible. I also believe that some people are using Steam streaming to stream the game to a TV, which would be kinda cool.
To me this is important to evangelize the game because I want to increase the population as much as I can. People see me playing this game they have never heard of, they ask questions, maybe I perk their interest, word of mouth advertising basically. This is how I learned about the game, and ended up purchasing it.
