Ive got a question about the speed of the download for the open beta and maybe somebody already asked this.. but is it supposed to only be like 0.10 kb/s? idk if this is even the right place to ask this lol

no its not and yea a lot of people are having that problem. Cryptic wasnt ready for the large valumes of downloads and now anyone who ordered from a store and not from the digital download sites is getting stuck waiting for days trying to download these files

I managed to get it via BitTorrent, I have since as a favour to the community also downloaded it to my dedicated server in the US and left it seeding. Currently nearing 200GB uploaded to other people so far.

However they have put out a lot more mirrors I have seen today, should be able to get it from one of those sources (Check Out Games.on.net)

Actually if the guys at STOnline were willing to permit me to I would be happy to mirror it for a few hours to provide another server. Only have about 2.5TB bandwith available tho.

Just don't know if I would be doing a no-no providing a mirror or not.
