Hey guys,

Maybe I'm having an off day but I can't seem to find a link for downloading the actual client... I know servers aren't live yet, but I was hoping to at least get and install the client in advance (slower internet connection). Can anyone provide me with the link, or is it not available yet?

Thanks much~

Officially you can't now, the open beta client was taken down at 2am UK time due to the open beta suspension. You could probably still pick it up through a torrent site somewhere but I wouldn't recommend that unless you're given a link by someone on here who has gone to the trouble to make a torrent themselves.

You just missed the official download link on the (future) signup page. >.< However, presumably there's still the usual download hosting sites like FilePlanet and whatever. I don't know whether the update servers are active, though, since SE posted a download link and then removed it around 7pm Pacific. (Anyone know if you can still update if you have a copy of the downloader?)

Answering my own question, I just installed a copy of the client downloader here on my laptop (that hasn't a chance of actually running the game -- 600 on bench) and it does seem like it's at least possible (though likely going to be very slow) to update if you grab a copy of the beta client from somewhere (FilePlanet or elsewhere). So either SE hasn't turned off the update server or someone's out there seeding (one benefit to using a BT client, being able to seed to everyone else even after you're done). It'll likely be excruciatingly slow, but you can do it if you want, looks like. :)
