I have to say, it is pretty annoying to enter a match, whether it's PvP or a Fleet Action, and be stuck patching tons of files. Sure, it delays my personal enjoyment, but the biggest issue is the fact that it delays my joining what is supposed to be a team activity. In PvP, it could cost my team some kills. In an FA, it could mean my team is at a disadvantage at the beginning of the run.
I know there's a setting to pre-patch everything, but shouldn't FAs and PvP maps have everything patched via the launcher?
