So far it downloaded 2Gb but it's still downloading for me. So people with slow connections, you have 4 days. =]

    apparently, theyve confirmed the game has been GPU-optimized for this build. o/

    oh please let it be so.

  • StrixMaximaStrixMaxima SPosts: 884Member

    They talk about more servers, not about client optimization. That's still speculation, at this point.

    Would it surprise me, though? Not one bit.

    That's a very big update just for 1 additional zone. maybe they replaced a lot of files.

  • korat102korat102 Milton KeynesPosts: 313Member

    84000 'files' 

    That's a lot of updates!

    Started mine now, don't want to leave it till the last moment.

  • StrixMaximaStrixMaxima SPosts: 884Member

    Looks like the client was almost completely remade. This lends some credibility to the optimization rumor, since most of these changes would have to be client side.

    Now I'm (even more) excited.

  • FusionFusion VaasaPosts: 1,391Member Uncommon

    That's one hefty sized patch allright, lucky i don't have a crappy connection.

    Hopefully optimizations are in, like so many others here seem to be echoing.

    This is a very recent update. I ran the launcher just a few hours ago and there was nothing new. Only running it again now because I saw his thread.

    I advice you to read some posts and blogs about the diferences GW2 have to other MMO. The best resume I saw about GW2 is "IT IS EVERYTHING WARHAMMER ONLINE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE!!!"

    So, read a few and make your opinion.

  • FalcomithFalcomith Hastings, FLPosts: 800Member

    I was just going to start a thread, but saw there was one. Around 5 gigs someone said. 1.8 gb into it and only 33% in. People with slow internet may want to get a jump before the weekend.

  • KidonKidon SesimbraPosts: 395Member Uncommon

    Better listen to Falcomith, i have a really decent connection and took some time to download it, since it only downloaded to 1MB/s Max

  • BeansnBreadBeansnBread PshPosts: 5,503Member Uncommon

    So for me it downloaded 5.1 GB like Sammyeli said.

     

    The difference between the two dat files is ~2.7 GB.

    Before: 13.3 GB

    After: 16 GB

    No they haven't. Confirmed that Sylvari and Asura are NOT going to be in this BWE.

    I can't wait until I need to re-download all of these files for the live version of GW2!

  • doragon86doragon86 Boston, MAPosts: 589Member

    Aside from that new area, I wonder what else they changed. I hope they put up some patch notes soon. 

    "For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

    Fairly sure that you won't have to redownload everything for launch. Don't quote me on that though. I would think that they would just patch their current launcher. Every chance I'm completely wrong though lol
