# 1 Patching afre Logging out
02-29-2012, 07:54 AM
I noticed last night I got a 400MB Patch last night after logging out. Kinda scares me cause normally I would had pushed the X and turned off Computer. Question is, this a good Idea to Patch after logging out of game?

It's just a pre-patch for upcoming content. It's usually only used for Season patches but Cryptic is using it now to try and cut down on downtime and excessive download times for weekly patches. Some people can take a hour or more to get the regular weekly patch due to the number of players now in the game.

I noticed this, too. I don't remember other prepatches auto patching after logout.

Every Season addition has worked that way - the pre-patch starts a week or more before the new Season goes live to save on the patching cluster slowdown.

Weird. The launcher opens when I log out, but it doesn't actually patch anything it seems. It just opens for a few seconds while it connects to the server, and then closes right back down.

It only patches the first time. After that it's just checking each time you log out to see if there's a new patch to pre-load.

Hmm. Interesting. Don't recall it ever even doing it the first time. Guess I must not have been paying attention.

same here, but I just wanted to start and now itīs DL again 500mb... really "great" since itīs stuck at 31,0 % now...

and this happens how often? mostly more than once a week? is this game this buggy or why do i have to patch appr. 1GB every week? content canīt be all of it - even if it where this is just f*cking anoying to some extend...

sorry for harsh language :p

EDIT: now itīs done and guess what...same version as prior to the patch...i kidd you not...WTF?
