i was d/l just fine and got 1/3 of the game done then all of a sudden the d/l slowed down to about 25% of my max speed, anyone else having similar issues? was looking forward to playing in a few hours but at this rate it wont be till tomorrow morning.

i have a .1mb per sec d/l.

24 hours to completion

no wonder other companies use p2p and torrenting technolgies....

yea i considered this, but they should have the foresight and bandwidth to prevent this, my internet is not super fast and i had no problems d/l for other game launches this close to actual launch, i had no problems with rift.

yea mine dropped from .6 down to .2 at least its MB/s and not Mb/s

kinda sucks tho clearing my evening because it said 4 hour total/ d/l then all of a sudden it drops to 12 hours :(

Someone has uploaded 9GB torrent for Defiance. Google and you will find it.

yea but i doubt it will be any faster since it will only have 1 seed and probably a ton of peers, i just don't understand how it can drop from max speed to less than 1/3 in a matter of seconds you think it would slowly go down over time.
