Cryptic is prepatching season 8 for us. -To avoid jammed servers on launchdate. Just have to let it patch, then everything is fine and dandy again.

You can always cancel the pre-patch and login again. You'll automagically download the pre-patch after you log out again.

nah Scum bag Star Trek wants to fully redownload itself ._.
this is so ♥♥♥♥ing annoying because it downloads so ♥♥♥♥ing slowly...

only took me 5 minutes after I logged out, if yours is taking longer I suggest that next time you decide to take a dump log in and out of the game and by the time you have washed your hands hopefully it will have finished patching.

You know, its either that or suffer incredible slow downloads on release date. I rather get it over with now if you can.

I'd suggest you should probably be grateful for the patch. How long is a few minutes out of your day? Chill bud.

nah It took up 17 hours :l
I download Bioshock 2 in 2 hours and its a bigger download

But i don't think that quite as many were downloading that at the time. This is an MMO, and theres 1000s of players patching atm.

Is Bioshock 2 a MMO with several large expansions? Last time I checked, it wasn't. As Kirkum said, be glad there is content in the game. Your internet speed could be increased if it takes 'so long' and that isn't an issue with the game. Your gripe is irrelevant. Resistance is also irrelevant, but I have a feeling the Borg wouldn't bother assimilating you just yet.

Anyone bothered to measure the actual download? Yeah it's patching 8GB... but it doesn't actually download 8GB. Just enough to patch that 8GB (about 80% of the game install... they could take a lesson from Valve, no?)

As far as time taken, it takes a bit of time to download the data, then some more time to patch the files.

Sucks to be using metered internet, nonetheless.

Woah; you need more fibre in your diet.

I have had that happen with many of my steam game clients for MMOs so I have both the Standard and Steam clients installed and STO will patch the Steam client with teh updates from your standard client reducing the files download and makes the fixing of teh steam client faster.

My EQ2 and Secret World clients both required a full 15 gb redownload each the last month due to some bug in the Steam system saying that they were no longer installed even though they were.
