    I'm on pretty bad DSL right now not being home. Getting about 50KB/s. I'm interested to see if I'll have it finished by friday. If not I can finish it when I get home saturday morning but still lol.

    Wut?  I find it hard to believe that "German Telekom" would offer max of 1Mbit line max.  Come on, usually I have extra-nice speeds if I d/l  from Germany (Poland here) so I guess you have good infrastructure there (as expected from Gemany).

    Even Polish biggest ex-monopoly Telekom that offer one of worst lines, offer up to 20 Mbits :/

     

    Anyway if you really cannot get other than I feel for you. Still you would downlaod it faster than 12 days, you calculation are off.

     

    Not to mention - what you expected?  Games are getting bigger, that's not surprise and they will get even bigger and soon.

    In 3-4 years imo standard will be 50 GB game size.  Graphics are getting better and resoultions LOT bigger. Sounds and music have to be better quality and support 5.1, DTS and similar systems and that also increase size.

    Not to mention people expect from AAA game like TOR, ALOT of content - that has to take 'space'.

    Welcome not to beta.

    Your move.

    The dark age called and wanted their internet back.. =P Honestly tho i will send a though to what ever diety governs broadband and ask them to grant you mercy.. or a miracle...

     

    Personally i am all patched up and ready to go... So with my luck i will be in the sunday group.

     

    Ps. I have a 100/10 fiberoptic LAN connection... And.. It... Feels... GOOD.  Ds.

     

     

    *sob* :(

    Well, maybe a friend can download it and hand me a disc. Only... almost no one I know uses disc burners anymore, teh. Oh well, typical. I have as usual the black could over my head.

    Ask if any of your friend have usb-stick or buy one yourself.

    I downloaded client already - it take 18,5 GB. 

     

    Cheapest no-name 32 GB Usb-stick / pendrive, cost ~ 10 euro.

    Mid-range better quality ones can easily be get for 20-30 euro. So you don't need dvd-burner.

     If you're looking at the downloader it's KBps not Kbps which is considerably quicker. at 70KBps it took me three days solid. At 120KBps it should take you a day and a half maybe two. Confusing I know.

    There actually was a proposal for a law to ensure everyone would have access to "fast" broadband internet in Germany but that somehow was dismissed. I'm still surprised that there are issues on the outskirts of the capital already after other major cities are as good as completely covered with fiber. Just this year I finally could upgrade from DSL 6000 (on the paper, I only ever got the traffic speed of 3000) to a 50 mbit fiber VDSL.

    So yeah, you have my sympathies and I hope you'll somehow make it in time!

  • mrw0lfmrw0lf LondonPosts: 2,269Member

    Now I feel really bad for annoying the cs of my isp for the best speed I can get is 50mb/s. Why can't we all have 100meg fduplex, it's a bloody discrace!

    I m downloading it right now (from France) at around 1400 Ko/s, which is nearly my max speed so i don't complain

    I am sympathetic to the plight of folks with low bandwidth.

    On the good side if you are DLing at 120KBps it really is only about 40 hours.

    120KBps = .117 MBps = 8752 seconds per GB = 145minutes per GB = 2.41 hours per GB

    2.41 hrs per GB = 38.6 hours for a 16GB DL.

    it should be called "ridiculous bits per decade", cause that is how long it takes for some isps to upgrade /rawr

    It is 18,5 GB.

     

    If you have old client that got patched over and over then it can have over 30 GB, cause game does not delete all old data.

     

    But freshly isntalled client (or if you remove old and reinstall new) will take 18,5 GB - at least as of today.

  • hardiconhardicon jackson, MSPosts: 358Member

    i got three gigs of it just last night with a 56kb/s connection.  so it will be done before beta most likely.

     

    it is beyond annoying when people say to upgrade your internet.  if i could upgrade the internet i would have already freaking done so.  some people enjoy living out in the country, the downside is this comes with usually crappy internet connection because big money companies like att wont get off their ass and make broadband available everywhere.  my state has even paid att to make sure everyone has broadband access around the state, which they did do, its just really slow dsl service.

     

    i feel your pain op but just let it run or try to go to a internet cafe somewhere that might get a faster download.  or make a long road trip to a different country.

    You may want to check the wires on your house. My internet was usually slow and bad, I used to blame my ISP, one day someone told me to replace all the wires and install new ones (becouse the wires degradate throught time and use),  and I mean all the wires for your phone and internet inside your house, it worked like a charm, I'm downloading it right now and it will take few hours.

    All I have to say is:  At least you can download.  I've been trying to get verified on the website for 2 days now.  Between the site maintenance and the thousands of people banging the site now, I can't verify.  No verify = no launcher install...

  • EzhaeEzhae LondonPosts: 737Member

    Downloading it for 3rd time after 2 times getting Error on 43% of 4th part of Assests. Fun times. At least doing os with 5 mb/s so consequent tries don't take so long...

  • steelrain666steelrain666 minneapolis, MNPosts: 140Member

    Im downloading now at 1.2MB/s so im a happy camper. Suppose it doesn't matter though, I don't think i can play till this weekend?

    Do mmo's (or any online game for that matter) even run with a 56k line?

    Downloaded in 3 - 5 hours (i even paused once to download something else quickly)... Not biowares fault you have shitty ISP, my download rate was >900 kb/s (sometimes it was ~800 but that's just when I unpaused till it got back up). :P

    time to get new internet service provider my friend ;)

    Not entirely true, depending on were you live you have Kabel Deutschland, or WillyTel for example, they use their own line.

    If you are using an o2 or 1&1 / versatel / primacall whatever then i must give you credit while the DSLAMs belong to mostly DTAG or Telefonica , Vodafone and so on.

    As to your download speed... well it depends on many things not only your Sync rate but also the quality of the line , of your inhouse whiring and so on...

    This isn't something that will 100% guarantee it will help but have you tried a DL accelerator or something? You can perhaps a couple KBs more at best and ensure that your dl doesn't get interrupted.

    On a side note... got at home 16000 line, works wonders, would rather have my parents line tho.... 100Mbit on fiber optics line :P and they only use it so watch tv... :P
