yes MMORPGs are in the range of 10-20GB  but most of it is installed from the CD/DVD, and the rest is downloaded (OVER MONTHS YEARS) as patches. so you dont really see the file size until you check it 3-6 months down the line.

im going to go to my local game show see if i can find the DC universe box at a decent price (20$ or less) because i cant simply put a 14GB chunk on my bandwith on the 2nd of the month 

You might get a good deal as far as I know they're discontinuing the box.

It becomes painfully apparent when reading this thread that some of you are unaware of metered bandwidth which exists across the pond and in some areas in the US. The TOR client keeps getting brought up and the funny story is that the beta client has been changed a few timess recently. This, of course, eats up bandwidth and hurt those whose countries pretty much live by the meter. Effectively hurting thier ability to play in the beta.

I can see the OP's reasoning and here in my area of the US,  I truly cannot know what it is like to be restricted for if I were, my gaming choices would be limited as well as even my side projects. Only good news that I can add though is that the client was free and aborting the install would only result in a loss of time. Well that and the peace of mind knowing that you don't have a bugged out piece of niche on your pc.

OP  11/02/11 4:19:29 PM#43

this post was to express my sentiment to a large download file and how new games comming out are really big. going the way of the download client (instead of the box) is fine for som eplaces where you can get unlimited bandwidth, but there is still ALOT of places (mainly where i live, and i can tell you its not in the middle of nowhere, its one of the main cities in north america) i have a capped internet service. (and i believe, i dont have a source though, that we are the most expensive internet providers in the world)

here is the cable plan 50$ + tax / month

 

  • Download speed of 8 Mbps, upload speed of 1 Mbps
  • Monthly data transfer capacity of 50 GB combined*
here is the cable plan at 72$ + tax / month
  • Download speed of 30 Mbps, upload speed of 2 Mbps
  • Monthly data transfer of 120 GB combined
the DSL connections are competitively priced
 
the cheapest i found was the 56k connection (that uses up the phone line) at 15$/month
 
and like i said, this is in a major city in North America
 
i dont have 75$/month to spend on internet wich is still capped
and the 50GB plan is still quite expensive for what it is
 
i see a couple of posts above saying they they get 100Mbps and unlimited bandwith for 25$ 
yeah i see why you guys think i'm whining about 14GB
 
and to the others that can't read,
its not about the disk space, (DUH i have 2x external hard drives of 1Tb each) i dont live in 1999
 
and the one who called me a noob, do you have anything constructive to add?

While 14GB isn't in the average range for MMO client size, it's certainly not out of the ordinary...

Dont forget rift :  15.0 GB

I hate internet in my area.  Seems no matter which ISP I have they can't offer me a reasonably stable or fast service regardless of what they offer 'on the box' so to speak.

 

I've been downloading all evening and still only have 5GB.  My boyfriend however who lives in Sweden 'the land of fast internet' had his done in just shy of an hour.  I hate living in the UK, especially in an area that's so crowded with people that reasonable internet is a no go.

Em.. your first post suggests something different. But I appreciate trying to twist your own words into something else.

On a side note, Im amased at the price of your internet, I pay 60USD, and I get Cable tv, phone and 120mb/s download, 10mb/s upload for that oh and digital tv.

The only solution would be to take 2-3 months to download it. 5GB per month chunks :p

Go look for a box copy. The local wal-mart and targets in my area have them for about $10-20.

If 14GB prompted such and outcry and SWToR is on your list of games to get, better make sure you get the DVD.

Good luck if you can find a box. 

You'll still be downloading about half that 14gb.  It was about a 6gb download on my PS3 and I have the game on disc.

Hey, kiddo - Age of Conan is a whopping 30GB. And I still have to put up with computer configuration...

14GB on the PS3 is a breeze.

3 1/2 hours of downloading is hardly anything to spill tears over, imho.

I guess if you have a really poor connection (or extreme bandwidth limitations per month) then the size of the game could be offputting, but you're connection or isp itself would have to be very, very bad.

Thats absurd.  Do you really need so much bandwidth?  Are sites even able to stream that fast to you?

You said that you clicked the "uninstall button".  That implies that the game was installed.  Otherwise it would have been the "cancel" button you would have been hitting.  Uninstalling the game would be a space issue, not a download issue.  Don't jump on the reading ability of others when you were the one that made it unclear.  Most people don't have the time, or desire, to read through every post in a thread.  They read the original post and comment on it.  Your OP should have been clearer.  Also, the "No more Green Lantern Corp" for you, comment also made it sound like you had been playing, but would be playing "no more".  I'm not trying to be the grammar police, but you need to take that into consideration when responding to people.

It also seems strange for people to complain about too much content.  I understand that you have to live with certain restrictions in bandwidth, but that isn't the devs' fault, just like it isn't their fault if some people only have dial-up connections. They also didn't "go the way of the download client (instead of the box)".  You can still buy the box, if you want, but the download client is free.  It is up too you, and,like all MMO's you would still have updates to download, but it would be less than having to download it all from scratch.  The choice is yours.  

I think it is your outrage over the size of a free game that grates on most people.  Some of have actually paid for it. If you need to download it over several months, then do it that way. No one says you have to do it all at once.  You could start the download on the last day of the month, and let it complete on the first of the next month, so that it is spread across two months. Plus, if you really wanted to, you could fit it into one month and be conservative with your downloads for the rest of the month.

I live in a city with a population of about 300,000.  I get ATT Uverse internet and TV combined for about $50 a month.  I get 6mb/s down with no cap.

When I lived in Houston, Tx it was exactly the same.  Either your not looking hard enough or you dont care enough.  My 6MB/s gets exactly the same downspeed (around 1Mb/s usuall) as my monthers internet which is supposed to be a much higher rate.

Unbelievable, some of the reactions in this thread. The OP's problem is that he has to download it because the discs are not available anymore. If your internet package is capped, this simply can be a problem. Im kind of amazed at the client size too. Its not as if DCUO has a lot of content to offer.

Im just amazed that a major city in the US where the OP, offers packages that seem to be from over 10 years ago. Way too limited and pricy. Might want to check if there is real competition between ISP's in your region. It sounds dodgy to me anyway.
