So yeah, I finally, finally, FINALLY got everything patched yesterday using the official patcher and was able to play the game for all of about 10 minutes until the servers went down for hours. Went to sleep, and since waking up the patcher just sits at 0.0% for a couple minutes then says it "timed out". Hours later, and I'm still getting the same. laskfjsadlkfjldsaj GRRRRRRR.
So I've heard tons of stuff about using utorrent rather than the official patcher but it's all complicated, like there's various folders with many torrents in them apiece that I found and it seems tedious to do all that, but now I realize it's better than this. I know it's been discussed in MANY threads but I can't find any of them at the moment and you have to be a paying member to use the search function on here, so can I bother any of you to explain to me exactly what I need to do to patch using those weird files deep inside the FFXIV folder?
Or, perhaps, some way to get the official patcher to suck less?
