My first start of the patcher resulted in it stalling and restarting the patch continuously - it has only download about 0.8% of the total 1.5 GB or so in about 5-6 hours. It gets to around 12.5 MB now and stops and restarts. Is this normal? Is the first patch supposed to take days to download? If so I am not very impressed with the game thus far...seeing as it has taken me a few days already to download the 5 GB game files.
the actual patch is done on ports 7255. If that port is blocked or heavly filtereed then you will have problems patching.
you can try patch by proxy option in the launcher option see if that helps any.
also the launcher will remember what was downloaded before to even though it starts at zero it is zero of what is left to download
