If I were to pre-order my game from Direct2Drive or Steam, would the beta client download be faster than what most are getting from the other non pre order sites? I've been trying for 3 days to download this client and I've either gotten corrupt files or the downloads have stopped 8 hours or so into the download. I have a 2M connection, not blazing fast, but it doesn't justify the 30-50 KBPS downloads I'm getting with this client. Any suggestions? I'm currently downloading from Altern8 and it's 45% complete...was getting 100-200 KBPS download speeds but it's dropped to 40-50 so it's estimating another day to download instead of a few more hours...I'm desperate at this point and I'm afraid this file wont work either....any ideas?
I went with D2D because of the Pre-order Bonuses, but I couldn't even get the download to start, so I had to download the Open Beta from a third party. I am hoping that the same issue won't be there when I am downloading the finished product.
