Patch size day of release

  • #1
    Unfortunately I don't have access to the beta and would like to know what the current size of the patches are. If I understand it correctly the pre-download version is build 8370, which is patch12? I hope we can simply add the sizes of the patches after that a get to the size of the patch on day of release.

    Any insight would be much appreciated.

    I don't think the size really matters, more the speed we will get when 100k ppl want to download it :) If i remember correctly i had to download 350mb ish last patch.

    Hopefully Blizz will allow us to start downloading an 0-day patch before the game goes live. Would be a terrible first experience if 12am PDT comes and we're all downloading a 1 gig patch and depending on what your download speed is, that can be a pain.

    I believe it's very likely we see something along the lines of 500+ mb. They've probably left some work to be done in this last month (like fixing items, artwork, some graphical glitches, and system bugs that are still being found in the beta).

    I just hope it won't take ages... I'm on a shitty connection, and my download speed is usually around 300kb/s... Downloading a huge patch when I'm all excited to start playing will be such a downer :P

    Blizzard launchers can use BitTorrent so speed should not be an issue (more people -> faster download).
