For those who are frustrated by the slow download, but are weary about downloading the uploaded patch from a file hosting site..here is what I did to get my download going quickly.
First off, if you have a router there are some ports your need to open up. To do this, log into your router, go to Port Forwarding and open the following up. TCP 54992-55551, UDP 55296-55551, TCP 55301 & lastly UDP 443. I had read that these were the ports to open, so I tried it personally and I was still getting questionably slow speeds. So then I figured my fireware was probably causing an issue. I went ahead and turned that off, just while patching of course and I'll put it back on later.
The second I turned my firewall off my download speed jumped up to about 400 KB/S. I have a 45 MBPS downstream, which translates to about 4.5 MB/S download. Eventually after downloading a small chunk of it, it connected me to more Remote Connections and inevitably sped up my download speed even more. Anyway, I hope this helps some of you out there, see you in the game!
