Steam download - 10 GB

Steam is downloading 10 GB "update" after i was already playing. Could you tell me why?

Second Question:
How could i prefend Steam doing that again?

AFAIK steam is having to re-install the whole game again. :mad:

Ouch...I got rid of my QoS on my router to speed it up, but Steam caps me at 1.3 MBps this sucks! Considering I was already playing :(

this ****es me off,:mad:
1# I have a limited bandwidth, I had to increase the download rate i.e. pay more to my ISP today to get it down...
2# I thought I would be able to log in today. since I made sure to log in yesterday and have the game up to date, I would have accepted a patch update.

It's a problem with steam, there is a big thread about it on the steam forum. Basically, if you have the client through steam, launch the exe directly, do not launch it through steam.

+1 all the other other comments.

Hell of a headstart!

I suspect because the first copy was labeled "beta" by steam, and now they are switching us to the 'actual' game, even though in reality, they are one in the same. Sadly a pitfall of Cryptic not using Steam's update system, steam knows nothing about the game's update status.

Grin and bear it. :(
