    Thank you for letting us know a update was out there.

    500 MB? Are either talking about the whole traffic, or about the amount by which your .dat grew?. My .dat grew only by 200 MB this update, after staying more or less the same the last update(s).

    I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
    And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
    Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
    And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

    But..but.. we killed him. He's no more. Kormir took his place and she's just Goddess of Truth. Does that mean patch notes are forever lost ?

    Update size not always coresponds to file size change. When you overwrite a line it doesn't have to change the size but you need to download that data first. If you have a file 10 MB in size, and apply 5 MB of updates that only change values around in the code the file will still stay at 10MB.

    Your point being? As that's exactly what i was talking about. I didn't check how much data was transfered in total, only the difference in size in the file. Thats why i was saying "either talking about the whole traffic..[..]"

    Definitely a 500MB patch.

     

    570+ to be more precise.

    After downloading this did anyone else try to login and play, just in case?

     

    If you did and failed, did you try closing the client and restarting it again just in case you needed to reopen it for it to work and let you play?

     

    Because I did both of those things.

    I do it every night just about. I'm hoping a janitor or something hits the servers start button.

    Yeah.... sadly I did the exact same thing. You know, just in case...

    The idea of GW2 releasing and being able to play whenever I want for as long as I want just... doesn't even sound real.

    We build up to the release for SO long, it takes on an almost mythical sense doesn't it?

    I wonder if we'll get another Stress Test before Headstart Access.

    No.

    Why not? It would be wise to double check so that they can make launch as smooth as humanily possible.. Unlike D3's horrible launch...

    Next time wwe will play there will not be any patchnotes, there should be release notes.

    Are we going to need an entire new client installation for release, or just an update from the last few betas?

  • MikeJezZMikeJezZ HillerødPosts: 1,197Member

    As stated many times before, no, you dont need to download any other client. The beta client gets updated to the release client.

    OKay, thanks.

     

    Lucky. Was about to uninstall and defrag.

  • MikeJezZMikeJezZ HillerødPosts: 1,197Member

    Remember to update your client though. So far theres a 300-500~mb update so far. Probably comes more up to release.

    Well, its kind of logical to login before August 25th unless you want to download 10 GB that day, when they stated the beta client will be updated to the full version ;)
