this is due to the game being pre-patched ready for the season 8 update.
when the main update is applied on 12th the more times you have pre-patched the less you will need to patch then so it should make it a lot quicker for you.
this is very common with large updates like this so its nothing to worry about.

# 113 Update Patch Peculiarity
11-08-2013, 08:11 AM
Every time I log in or out of the game, the Launcher goes into Patch Mode, but only seems to download about 7% before it quits out from it. Is this normal or is the patching glitching up and I may to do a total re-install on the 12th?

Question (sorry if it's been asked already) but if you select force verify will it do the pre-patch in one lump sum instead of a lil here and a lil there?

I'm also having this problem. I've already done force verify through Steam, and had the client itself do a force verify because the game completely crashed my computer yesterday.

Same happens here, except for it reaches 0.01% then it goes off.
I would love to visit this star in-game...or maybe this one!

# 117 S8 pre-patch
11-08-2013, 01:46 PM
is anyone else having trouble with the s8 pre-patch? some of my guildmates also gave up on trying to pre-patch it, since it keeps closing by itself at the start for some reason.

the weird thing is that after it fails, i have to download a patch the same size of the downloaded part of the pre-patch(around 3mb), every time i want to re-open STO.

Its minor upgrades along the way..

In your fleetmates case, it's because they already have what is needed, but the patcher dosen't know this until it's run a quick scan.

It is confusing. You'd think after the pre-patch was loaded, that would be it, but no... it has to have insecurity issues about whether or not it actually was loaded.

# 120 Season 8 Patching
11-08-2013, 03:06 PM
Its been a while since I've gone thru a big patch with STO, so I may just be stupid for asking: but, is anyone else finding this 7Gb patch going very, very slowly? Or, is that just how the big patches are?

thanks!
