  • Get better internet lmao. Blame your Internet or location from where your trying to play. The game is not at fault.
  • why is it patching was my point....... shouldnt the patches have been included in the full game download like every other game?

    Well, I am not sure if they update the main downloads as they continue to patch, perhaps they only do it when they make more major updates, not sure. However, Tuesdays and Thursday are patch days, so even if they do update the main downloads, you happen to have downloaded and installed on a patch day, so yeah...
  • aaah lol thanks, thats probably why then :P I have a habit of trying new games out at inappropriate times, usually during maintenance lol

    Patches won't be until BHS updates the original game file because patches are just that, patches. They aren't part of the original downloaded game, thus, the have to be downloaded later until a version of the game is created that contains the patch.

    I can answer that question:

    We usually have two types of patches: 1) developer patches delivered by Bluehole and 2) publisher patches released by EME. We usually only update the full install build when we release a new developer patch since updating the full build can take 4 - 6 hours and can cause longer maintenance times when they are released. Our latest build, 39.07.07.EN4, included the 39.07.07 version released by Bluehole and our EN4 modifications to enable some events and fix some localization problems. That is why it had to download a separate patch after the initial download.
  • Gotta love Comcast.
