OP  9/03/12 1:14:09 AM#1

I just bought the game today, and after waiting for ages for it to install, it is now %20 through downloading updates, this is 900mb, so I guess the completed update will be around 5gb. Or in other words, around 6 hours to install the game before being able to play.

PATHETIC!!!

Well you saved yourself a bunch of time by (presumably) buying and installing the disks.

 

Your download speeds are personal to you.  They depend on many factors, the most notibly being how many people share your "1" network.  Apartment complexes with 1 line in share a common network, for instance.  .. And the speed is usually slow during peak hours.

 

Just as a slight jab, I downloaded the patch at 3 MB / sec and it went fairly quick, but thats because I have a dedicated IP who provided high speed internet.  Some people have it even faster.  But you get what you pay for.

 

But who knows .. if you don't have any softare to monitor internet activity, you could have a common virus that infects your computer as a "server", with lots of incoming and outgoing traffic.  Nobody knows your computer better than you, so only you can answer up to that one (alternately other viruses will slow communications also and/or do rootkits).

OP  9/03/12 1:45:24 AM#3

My pc is fresh out of the box today (new)!

My internet speed is 1.5mb, still have over 49k file left to download to update the game!

Why was there over 60k of files to download to update?

I have heard of the term pathetically small, but pathetically large lol that's a new one. To answer the obvious there is a large amount of files to change...because well a large number of files changed since they produced the disks. Been a lot of development since they were made. A 5 yearl old child can work out more = bigger.

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (1000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (480 Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(900 elementalist), Wildstar

Now playing GW2, AOW 3

You can have the fastest computer in the world, but you are still limited by bandwith.  Acutal bandwidth is how much information can be transmitted over the line you are using.

 

Your bandwidth may be 1.5M, but that doesn't mean thats what you are going to get.

 

Picture this situation.  A potatoe truck can unload their potatoes onto a platform in the factory quickly using 5 workers.  All 5 workers come from the truck to the platform and do the job.  If suddenly there is a tunnel that restricts movement, then only 1 worker can deliver the potatoes to the platform at a time .. the rest sit and twiddle their thumbs.

 

This is bandwidth .. you can make the truck faster, you can make the platform bigger .. but you can't adjust the tunnel size (out of your control).  The size of the tunnel decreases when more people want to use the tunnel for other reasons.

 

edit: And the game is evolving .. it evolved much since the DVD-ROM you have was made.  So updates will happen.

Normal, for MMORPGs.

If you play MMORPGs regularly, maybe faster internet would help. I patched GW2 with 15mb/s.

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

The only thing pathetic is your internet connection.

Welcome to the 21st century. Developers make changes to games after the disks have been stamped out.

So you actually find it necesary to tell us about how you hate the large updates. Funny thing where we got to, people even started to complain when the game gets updated.

If you don't like daily updates, GW2 really isn't the game for you. If you'd like to play a game that never updates and where broken stuff doesn't get fixed, there's plenty of other MMOs out there just waitinf for your whiny ***.

The problem is his Internet. Downloading WoW's updates with that connection would take days.

There is too much reliance of computer performace these days, which can be mitigated by other nefarious means.  If the OP expected and paid for 1.5M / sec connection and isn't getting it, there is a reason (of which may not be pretty).

LMAO children of today, now they complain because the developers have been actively  patching game since launch, causing large update first time installed. Dumfounded. On the other hand im really happy how these guys have been attacking problems so far. GJ Anet, now make it so i can acess TP :)

 you just need a better computer and/or internet m8

I downloaded the WHOLE 17GIG client in about 2 hours......all was smooth as a baby's bum.

The only issue i am having are client crashed since early access (but Anet support is still working on it).

You don't seem to realize how networking works yourself.

The advertised speed is theoritical, but not everyone (usually no one) ever reaches their said speed.  I pay for a 50M/sec line and even having professional level severs, I doub I'd ever acheive that speed regularly.  Unless you're paying for a true  dedicated line, you will never get that cap of yours.

Like most people, OP shares his connection with others in his area.

I maxed out my 25 mb/s before launch.

And yeah, try to install AoC now and patch it... That is something.

The problem is that they must make the CDs 6 weeks before launch at latest and ANET have updated a lot of stuff since then.

But just put it on updating while you go to work or sleep if you have a slow ISP, sitting and watching is just annoying.

I am never under 80%, my ISP rocks. :). And no, I dont pay anything extra for that (just for a static IP and 3 pop3 mail adresses).

My buddy is usually on 20%, so it depends a lot from ISP to ISP.
