I wish, 3.5mbit connection

Started it downloading at 12pm yesterday and has been almost non stop since, with 20 gig on the initial install and a further 5gig patch

It's doing interesting things to your base latency.  What router do you use?

Re: beta stress test weekend 10th-13th LARGE client

@Kelly TG582n, I was expecting the same graph as I would with Steam, but looks like the patcher is not p2p.  Plus I had it setup to max out my download speed to get it as quick as possible, as reports of players getting corrupt downloads and having to retry, with a 30gig install, that is time consuming.
I will do a wireshark once its live, but so far it is in gold traffic at least during patching so not an issue.  But the wireshark won't be 100% as the Euro servers aren't up yet, we will be on the US server during the stress test.  Suppose to be one in US and one in Europe from what I've read of the faq's

Re: beta stress test weekend 10th-13th LARGE client

I noticed interesting spikes in the download speed of this too, (1.68mb/s down to 18kb/s) but since I patched as soon as I read the email - not a issue!
But if you did get an invite, downloading/patching on the Wednesday is the best thing to do!
Don't wait until 5pm on Friday!
Also check your account details out before 5pm too!
