Don't worry, they'll have the foundry up well before your able to even play the new season. I have been patching now for the last 15 minutes and am only up to 2% finished!!! I thought the "pre-patching" was to avoid this. Anyway, I doubt I'll be seeing New Romulus until sometime next week at this rate, much less any foundry missions.
Edit: Oh great, now a timeout and restart. make that 2 weeks....
yeah almost zero traffic coming from the patch server
They may be trying to keep the patching rate slow to avoid a mass of people all deluging the game server at once. So they are slowing trickling out the patch little by little to keep only a few new people logging on the the game server at one time. I hope this is the case, because if the patch is this slow just because they were not ready for the amount of people patching; given the additional pre-patch last week, they really dropped the ball on game day.
It is for me too.. I have a 50 meg download speed on my connection and patching at less than 10 kb.sec right now...If you guys knew there was gonna be such a tremendous strain on the patch server there should be some additional resources and bandwidth available so we can update..also patch server keeps restarting because of the strain on it so you guys need to look at it to troubleshoot what is going on...Could be just the huge strain on it right now but....You never know so please try and look...We want to play Season 7 too
If i have to wait all day Im not gonna be very happy
If they make something idiot proof. They will come out with better idiots
As expected ... with every season, the foundry is at least 6 weeks offline. 2 weeks no playing, another 4 no editing and reviewing. It was so in Season 4, 5 and 6 as well. That's particularly inconvenient now since the foundry is one of the major features in Season 7 (featured episodes etc).
