Well is designed to handle a high load. Digital downloads of games is there business. If they would take 30 hours, people would be upset, and that would cost them alot. Things like the torrents would be better if more people would upload, and fileplanet is only good if you pay (or are downloading a small file.)

Give them time. I have been in countless betas, and this is on par with the rest of them.

Or it could be that most people don't like Steam and therefore the demand on their servers is lower

I prefer a physical copy to digital, but that's just personal preference. I also don't particularly care for Steam's client, so I don't use them.

I think it's more the price on Steam. It's more expensive than other shops, but I like the convenience of Steam.

The download was pretty quick, I had it in a couple of hours, others I know have been downloading all day and still nowhere near done.

That's unusual for Steam, usually downloads slow to crawl for a big game release.

All the MMO had their problems and this one it is not the exception to the rule, so be patient and let the Cryptic guys work, you got ot be patient, and remember this is only a Open Beta = Problems of any kind.

No, I think everyone at cryptic is sitting with their feet up drinking some beers right now.

I just hate that it disconnects you entirely instead of dropping you back to the character screen or something.

I hate that I cannot even download the game not one download site is responiding they say download starting and nothing ever happens. I finally went to a differant country website to download it and the wait is around four days. Guess I wont be checking this out for a while. The sad thing is I preordered it. Just Amazon does not have a specific server like some of the preorders. Bleh

This will be the last time I pre-order digital. I'll simply order a hard copy, bide my time, sip scotch and let the rest bite their fingernails.
