Seriously, every single time I enter the game (or after I leave), the launcher feels the need to download and patch ca 5-8%, then goes to 100%. Obviously you guys forget a 'Done' flag.

That should just be the game verifying files.

Same here!!! I gather it'll take another good 10 hrs or so for the patch to download!! Only 21% done as of yet.

What I don't understand is why are some of the others getting a patch file of approx 2GB or so, while the rest are getting an update of 5576MB?? Strange!!

Is the launcher supposed to do this? Mine started on 11/05/13 and now it is patching when I log off. If there is a way to fix this where it does not how? Did I change an option inadvertently? I assume it isn't supposed to do this without fail.
Thank you all in advance.

See ya about the galaxy.

It's doing pre-patching for the season 8 release, I think - there was an announcement about that in the "Galactic News Network" forum.

You've got nothing to worry about.

After exiting game log in automatically logs in, so far it's only caused one instance of the game to bring up the game stopped working please report to cryptic. However this is likely to cause a memory leak and either cause a memory dump on the computers or crash the game as the launcher is trying to re-launch the game at either exit of the game or log off.
