# 1 Client Download Speed
01-12-2010, 10:09 AM
Hi

I pre-ordered through atari. I was directed to the /download page and have now tried all of the recommendations available to me. At best, my download will complete in 10 days time. This is not what i expected when i purchased this game. I understand that this is the open beta segment, but that part was apart of the advertised package. I find it unfair that D2D users are given a high-speed download, but I have to wait 10 days and miss out of most of the beta. Why are faster download links not available?

I'm having the same problem as you. I'm not sure how long it will take to download but I haven't even gotten close to 1% yet?

Same with me. I estimate that my dl will be finished in just 70 hours or so. This is the first and last time I ever try this again.

This message is for anyone at Cryptic who cares in the slightest bit. I really wanted to order through your parent company but the download speed in not acceptable. I have cancelled my atari pre-order and have gone with Direct 2 Drive.

Fileplanet Speed for Atari DL = 0-20kbs

D2D download speed = 50-150kbs

I am sorry to loose the 500 cryptic points, but waiting 10days to get in the beta was just too much for me. Sorry.

I agree that the downloading of the open beta client stinks heavily. The best speed I'm getting (I pre-ordered from Amazon) is 60-90kb a second from the torrent. My cable modem fairly recently upgraded their service so I could download 1.8 megabytes a second (on average). I am very disappointed.

Yep, 4 days to download the 7.8Gig client, but then you have a 10Gig patch. I might be lucky to get downloaded by the time the head start begins.
