Unbelievable. Just tried to log in for the first time in over a month, and my patches are downloading at between 0 and 20 kb/s. Meanwhile, it only took 30 minutes to patch WoW yesterday--with a patch weighing it at over 500 mb. And today's 50 mb patch took just a few minutes.
It's really hard to believe these guys are serious about making this game any good, unless they're working hard behind the scenes on a secret expansion pack, and there is scant evidence of that (cf the supposed massive graphical changes to the environment that is rumored to be underway).
