I was successful in getting access to a Beta key. I started downloading the client and it was fluctuating between 700 and 1200 KB/s.....now it is constantly in the 300 - 400 KB/s range. Is this indicative of the client patch download speeds and performance of the game? And don't bother mentioning that it is my internet connection, because it is not.
I understand there will be issues with the Beta, but providing the infrastructure to download patches at a decent speed is essential. The quicker the download, the more clients you can support (with downloads).
Hopefully the publisher/developer can address this issue, but as of right now, I already have reservations about the game....and I haven't even played it. Sad!
I'm having the same issues. I started this download on the STO not from one of the mirro sites because they all said that I needed to buy the game, well I already pre-ordered through Gamestop. I'm not buying it again. So I am using the STO website download and it's been almots 3 hours now and I'm at 28%. I have a brand new quad core pc with more than enough to run this game. WTF is the issue? come on cryptic, you're not filling me w/ a lot of hope for this game.
