Oh they know what the problem is alright. It's just taking a long time to find a fix that doesn't cost them any money.

im in uk

I am in game now through that method.

Download Private tunnel.

Install and connect ( you can also use any VPN)

Load the launcher, login and let it patch.

Make sure auto patching is off under launcher options.

Click engage and go into one of your characters.

Dissconnect from your vpn or private tunnel.

You will see that you are dissconnected, but leave the window open!!

Wait a couple of mins for your own broadband to reconnect.

Log back into game.

Meh, well I don't pay for the game so apparently haven't got as much right as some to grumble, however I have paid for several ingame items which I am not able to access due to the downtime. Does that give me some sort of right to whine, just a little?

I do not discourage legitimate arguments. I simply believe that those who do not pay for the game have no right to criticize the developers for issues related to said free game. Free is never truly free, and the only ones who DO in fact have any legitimate argument are those who have invested real money in said game. Time - while valuable - is not relevant in this case because if your time was really that valuable then you would be wasting it on a game at all.

And I totally agree on Fox News network. Note I never mentioned freedom of the press, because that is relative.... and false.
This is moronic

It's like saying that if I give free toys out that don't pass the safety standards that it's the parents and children own fault if something bad happens.


Regardless of whether of game is "free" or not, a minimum standard of service is expected and required. Just like free food at soup kitchens still needs to be free of harmful bacteria and those providing it are liable if it is not.

They can't just link a patch file, because they use RSync type patching, which patches on the fly - it depends on where you are in the game, and what systems you've visited. Ever noticed that you go to some system and it says 'patching...' up in the top left?

So everyone is NOT at the same level of patch, they are for main launcher and main client, but not for in game files.

To produce a patch for 'everyone' we'd all have to re-download the game again. At least 12GB, which is why they don't do that kind of patching.

They can trickle feed the data to the people that need it, and hence be more efficient.

A strange rumbling and feeling in my stomach is occurring and I have also located in what appears to be a 21st century refrigerator device, a loaf of bread, ham, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and mayonnaise. How can I make use of these objects?
