1 minute to d/l @ 55Mbps.
Says 2 minutes to install, and counting down.

Took 3 minutes to install.

I'm pretty new to Defiance. Is it worth it to start updating the new content ASAP, or smarter to wait until they give the 'all clear' in a few hours?

It came on my PC at 250MBPS, installed in no time...
Must've been one of the few first to get this I reckon?

Update away my good woman.
The servers won't be up for another few hours though.
Don't let the negativity here concern you too much.
It's a peach of a game with less than stellar management is all.
Good fun if you don't mind some bugs in your stew.

Excellent, thanks Bonehead. I've enjoyed it so far, despite lagging out several times a day (if not more). I have no plans to move on at this point.

Kinda makes you wonder why 4.5 hours are required for the server.
I know that it's possible to pull a server bank of HDDs and swap in the back-ups with all the new stuff preinstalled in a few feverish minutes.
At that point you put the original HDDs (agreed that I don't know the server structure they use, and the HDD/SSD/Bionetic Memory storage they use in the future, but it's all the same principle) into stasis and keep them for a few days/weeks to stuff back in if the new system goes belly up and you need to swap them back....

Yeah, players can possibly lose progress if the update makes it incompatible with the older version, but if you're swapping back at that time - you've already concluded that the update nuked they system.

Vonna, if that is your picture, I wish I was 35 years younger, 50lbs. lighter, and single. Hell, even if that's not you, I wish that anyway.

But you're not, so Curtain #2 has the one who looks like Blondin.
