I really hope there will be a download version with LoR included from the web server, as I really just want to get around even using the launcher at all. The launcher never works as it should. Crashing now and then, stopping randomly, patching in a snail's speed etc.

Well, if you want to be certain of getting the absolute latest files from scratch, there's a sticky at the top of this forum for the latest launcher. Download that, put it in a folder of your choice, then run it, and it will download the latest version of the game client into that folder. This does have the slight downside of not setting up any shortcuts, etc, that the proper setup files do, but that's easy enough to do manually.
As an alternative, they seem to have removed the option of bittorrent download from the official download page, but, if you can find an old one from somewhere that's still working, and use a bittorrent client that allows selection of specific files within the torrent to download (I use Tixati), you might be able to just download the setup file that installs the launcher, then the launcher will only need to update itself to the latest version before downloading the game client.
hi all. thanks for the details what you suggest will be the last resort
man, what they do here is a joke:
"How come our servers can't handle that many downloads?"
"Hey John, did you thought we would get so many people logging on, when we launch an expansion we are advertising since weeks? And that really everybody is trying to get the update?"
"Rick, what do you think we should do?"
"Hey, lets just tell them we are working on it (but pssst, they can't really know that the only solution would be to buy/rent better servers for these occasions, but we really won't, because we wont spend the money we get from the lucrative lock-boxes"
"Ok Martin, let's do that!"
