I got y'all beat: Starter the patch last night, 2 hours later saw 540MB downloaded and only 60% completion. Reluctantly I aborted and exited. On restart it again began to download and at 100MB aborted again, and decided to try to force verify where it hung, and after 10 minutes or so walked away and went to bed.

This morning I wake up to a patched game and click 'engage' where I get a 'version mismatch' error, so I exit once again. on restart it again downloads 34MB and gives me the 'engage' button, so I force verify once again and after 10 minutes or so I get the 'engage button' and decide to click it. The game finally loads.

SO, after 10 hours and about 700MB downloaded I'm finally patched and playing, and quickly do my academy dilith quiz and exit to go to work. Am so glad everything else in game works as smoothly as the patch process, this is about the third time in the last couple months the patching has done this.

Good, that means someone reasonably important saw it.

People need to realize, that the patch maybe 500 MB, but you're not downloading 500 MB. You're downloading far less then the launcher is patching (due to compression, etc.).

But going back ontopic now:
Here on my Laptop I have the problem, that the patching itsels is slow like f***. The download-rate isn't the problem, the patching itself is. The game needs several minutes to patch a couple of MB. Dunno why, I even did not have the problem on my desktop machine.
