Fleeb, thank you very much, dumb ass steam got me speed capped there was no way i was getting this game till next month untill you came along. and even then 10gb would have been waisted. so far it seems to be working updating the 59mb now. i really dont get it tho i got too lvl 6 this morning took a break had some food come back cant play cause steam is gay.

One question. do you need to play the game threw steam to get your retail key when the 2nd comes? or can i leave steam out of the equasion from now on?

Thank you ever so much.

well i just woke up and i rush to my comp, run the desktop shortcut and steam starts and BOOM HEADSHOT i realize i made a huge mistake...

so basicly now STEAM is downloading the game again, so my question is:

Is it worth dling the game again through steam or should i download the client from some other place (if you have a link would be realy sweet)

and if someone has dowloaded through steam, AGAIN -.-, did it work or not?

asking these question since i live in croatia and dont know how these times zones work so i dont know at which point were the posts made

Thanks in advance!!!

Uhh... hyuck fer reals mister? Of course I know NOW. Not when I bought the thing. The advertising and fluff all over Steam when I paid up was that not only would I get these great little toys, I'd get to play with them before everyone else in the headstart program! The way they have cocked this thing up has made it so that one or the other is useless. Taking part in the headstart makes the largest portion of the extras useless because they're designed for use AT character creation, or during the first Tier. Waiting for the extras makes the headstart pointless for obvious reasons. The way that Cryptic have doled out these extras and deals through intermediaries so that they can later go "OH NO GUYS, it's not out fault srsly, blame the retailer this is how we intended it from the start" is just as deceptive and fly-by-night.

LOL
Yeah, that's the obvious thing that everyone should have thought ahead to do! I mean, who WOULDN'T expect a reputable download platform to flip out and decide it needs to delete and re-download an entire 10gb client? What a bunch of doofuses!

Heres where I downloaded it from a couple of weeks back (even though I bought on Steam). This is one of the recommended sites, which was linked from Cryptic's site page list.

Steams had this problem with at least 2 mmos in the past. I'm trying to remember which single player game it did it too me on as well. Dont get me wrong, I love steam. But you dont play mmo's off it.

Not everyone is going to know, and I doubt any of us naysayers thought to put a post up warning people - I didnt.

ok.. I downloaded the steam client again as I didn't really have a choice (the 3fl.net.au one was corrupted) and now after the steam one downloaded the patcher is crashing constantly. W T F again?

this is just plain stupid. I've emailed steam and they're conveniently not answering, and I emailed Cryptic and they said it was Steam's fault.

I've asked for my money back but I don't think thats going to happen tbh.
