I must say, you guys are starting to suck ass more and more. WTF, no more gopro studio? I have bought every ver of gopro, even the session. Just picked up the 6 black and started playing with it. 240 fps awesome, can't do anything with quik... could have with studio.

I understand the limitations of computer hardware and the hevc codecs. My point is, in the gopro studio I could have selected clips to slow mo, I can't do that with quik for windows.
Here is an example, my kids were on the trampoline and wanted to see them selves. I think maybe this is a good chance to try out the high frame rate of the gopro hero 6 black and show the kids some really cool shots of them moving really slow and smooth. Instead of downloading the vids, grabbing a quick template and dragging and dropping some clips onto it, then changing the selected clips play speed. Now I have to download the vids, handbrake them if I don't have the hardware, import them into some more pro video software, find some music, blablabla only to show the kids some cool slow mo.
I want to be able to use some more pro software don't get me wrong. I don't even care about the hevc, in fact I am glad that gopro is pushing the new tech forward. However, I expect that gopro will include some basic quick and dirty software to edit the videos with. To me the power of gopro is not only the awesome camera, it is the hole package. Software, community, hardware...
I preordered the GoPro Hero HD back in the day becasue I saw a great camera with great potential. So far you have not let me down, I think replacing Gopro Studio with Quik a little microsoft-ish. We are not going to give you want you want, we will tell you want you want and you will like it!
Bring back Studio or make quik like Studio, keep the gauges as they are really a cool idea and can't wait to get them going while on my sport bike. Don't get rid of studio and tell us to use some 3rd party software, that is a little amature at this point don't you think.

Since there are much better 3rd party programs that are free, like DaVinci Resolve, it doesn't make sense for GoPro to put the resources into developing a competing editor. Not only is it a huge undertaking, it becomes a a major burden on the Customer Service as people with under powered machines or lack of editing experience call in with issues.
It is unfortunate that Quik for desktop is so limited and has less than stellar performance. If GoPro had figured out a way to port Splice to the desktop or even a closer rendition of the Quik mobile app they, and we, would be much better off.
GoPro has invested heavily in developing editing solutions. They recently opened an expanded office in Bucharest, Romania and have software teams in Paris, San Mateo, and San Diego. Currently, the focus appears to be on automation, cloud, and mobile apps, but perhaps we will see advancements in the desktop app as well.
While it is frustrating for current users of GoPro cameras who do not know how, or refuse to use, better free editing software, GoPro has and continues to invest millions into developing solutions for their customers. Much more so than any other competitor.

I agree. Why would you not support GoPro Studio anymore. GoPro Quick is not good. I spent about 1000.00 already on the GoPro Hero 6 along with all the accessories and yet you removed the only software I need.

You don't need Studio, and it wouldn't have worked with Hero6 HEVC files anyway. See my post above for some reasons why they stopped supporting/providing Studio.
Better (even if Studio was still available) free options for editing your footage are:
VSDC Video Editor
and more if you search for them.
Even Windows Movie Maker was more stable than Studio. Windows 10 now has a built in video editor through the Photos app.
