Ever since the morning update today (2/24), the game has been taking a VERY long time to patch. I believe I've been sitting here for about a half-hour waiting for 76MB to patch. Highty unusual.
Doesn't appear to be my connection, as every other website (including the STO forums) is acting fast and responsive as usual.
Ran a tracert to patchserver.crypticstudios.com and it came back in the 63-66ms range.
Giant space hamsters?
I even patched and booted Champs thinking, eh I'll futz around while STO patches. Big mistake. Champs was unplayable while the patch was attempting to download. Pause the patching, Champs worked just fine. Start the patch, freeze-ville: population me.
Yeah, mine was actually moving along at a nice click but it seemed to get stuck. I restarted and I've been sitting at "Patched 63.5MB / 75MB" for nearly 20 minutes now. "Received" shows .1MB gained every 2 secodns but I'm still at 85% after all this time.
