You know the post just above yours offer solution to slow download (which also been around since Sept)?
I have 27 local connections and my antivirus is off. I'm just saying that it's insanely erratic. It'll sit at zero b/s for a minute, then jump to 600, then to 1MB/s, then down to 200, then to 15, then to 10, then to 0. It's ridiculous.
edit: you know what MMO doesn't have this problem or require utorrent?
Every other MMO in history. Edited, Apr 16th 2011 9:36pm by garethrogue
Oh I must be in an alternate history of Earth, because every time many other MMOs have patch topics like "Where's the manual patch download" pop up so often in their forum.
Must be. I've played FFXI, WoW, LOTRO, WAR, Aion, Rift, and AoC, and not once, ever, from 2004 through today, have I had to download a third party program to update the game, or had a download rate as wild as what I've seen with this one. Come to think of it, what in the **** is this "clickandbuy.com" business? Why can't I tab out of full screen mode without the game going berserk? Where else do you ever hear of that? Why in god's name do I have to exit out of the game and open an entirely different program, just to edit my video options or game controller mapping? Never before has there been a game that's a more clumsy, cumbersome, or purposefully inferior product then it's predeccesors. FF XIV is the definition of counter-intuitive progression in the development of the MMO world. It's the equivalent of unleashing hard core theocracy and the black death on the world at the same time. Yes, I just compared this game to the medieval ages in world history. You must be experiencing the alternate history where FF XIV isn't far and away the biggest bomb to ever show it's *** on this green Earth.
Look, it is what it is, just because you like the game, doesn't mean you have to be blind to it's obvious fallacies. It's not nessesary to protect the game just because the graphics are completely astounding and the soundtrack is masterful. I'm still holding out much hope for FF XIV but I'm not afraid to raise the BS flag when it's warranted. Edited, Apr 18th 2011 8:34am by garethrogue
