this ****es me off,
1# I have a limited bandwidth, I had to increase the download rate i.e. pay more to my ISP today to get it down...
2# I thought I would be able to log in today. since I made sure to log in yesterday and have the game up to date, I would have accepted a patch update.
BUT NOT THE WHOLE FREACKING GAME!!!:mad
Same here mate, i had to buy another ****ing 20 gig cap block and half of that is gonna be chewed up by this, $25 NZD for 20 gig.... and i also ran my client etc yesterday to make sure it was all updated, good old Steam, there such a bunch of ****ers lol, and i bet you this was Steams idea...
Thanks Steam, you just cost me like 10 bucks too download the client, my cap only had 400 meg left this morning
Definitely going to download the external client later (i'm about 40 percent in my steam 'update'). Annoying that it decided that it needs to download the whole damn thing again. Guess it didn't remember I already did that when I used steam-stobeta for all those weeks.
If Steam started downloading again, it's too late. Steam automatically deletes the "old" files before it starts to download the new one. If Steam hasn't screwed your download up yet you can go into your steam folder and launch the exe directly to bypass Steam.
