Title: SotA patch
Post by: Arrian on November 18, 2016, 07:22:00 PM
Is the patch ghastly slow for anyone else?  It's been more than a day, and it's crawling along at 40% complete.  Ugh.

Maybe you need to re install your client downloader, it took 5-7 minutes for me

A few times it's taken a horribly long time for the game to patch, like 24+ hours to finish.  (From what I understand the patcher is essentially a specialized bittorrent client)  I've gotten the process to speed up by just closing the patcher mid-download and re-opening it again.  I assumed that you shouldn't interrupt the process but it doesn't seem to hurt it.  The patcher does a quick check of everything it's downloaded so far and then starts downloading everything it doesn't have yet.

Yeah, I surfed the forums and found that advice, right at bedtime.  Restarted the patcher a couple of times until I got a decent throughput, and it would have finished in a normal time thereafter.  Well, I assume so - I went to bed.  And I'm good to go this morning, will be in game momentarily. Yay! :)
