Yep, figured this would happen... it's what I was predicting when more people started downloading the same files. Anybody else here remember the nightmare of Tera going F2P? I don't think I've ever spent literally a whole week downloading a single game-client before... with nothing else on the net running at all... with no way to pause or resume (turned out it caused the files to end up being jacked up with CRC errors and such).

I warned Trion/the Devs of this issue earlier this month on the forum. They still waited last minute to release the download.

That probably has a lot to do with demand placed on their patch servers. If you received your access early on in the day, then there were less people stressing their patch servers. As more people try to take content from the patch servers, bandwidth becomes scarce and essentially slows everyone's maximum download speeds down. Towards the later evening, like at the time of this post, download speeds are well below a megabyte per second. Again, this has everything to do with demand placed on the patch servers.

It has nothing to do with the client's internet connection, it's the server having to deal with unprecedented demand.

Indeed, exactly what I've been saying. But of course their name says it all, "DigitalPhail"... probably the typical that believes there's only the beginning and end point in a connection and isn't aware there's several server hops as well in between. :cool:

A friend of mine just received her access an hour ago and finished within the hour. She was getting well over 2 MB/sec the whole time.

I'm still plugging away at my standard .16 MB/sec.

I warned Trion/the Devs of this issue earlier this month on the forum. They still waited last minute to release the download. They started to send out the emails 48 hours prior to the start of the beta. How is that "last minute"? Also, they are sending out the emails in waves so we don't have everyone trying to patch at the same time. Seems pretty responsible to me. Your mileage may vary.

I'm chugging away at 0.23 which is actually ridiculously fast for my internet that usually gets 90 kb/s.

I'm most impressed :)

I started downloading at about 5:50am EST and I was downloading at 4mb/s. I was finished by the time I could remote into my home PC from work and check it. So, about an hour.
