Seriously blizzard.. this is bad.
anyone have any suggestions on how i can make this go any faster?
Peer to Peer floats between 50-500 kB/sec (out of 2000 max) and when I switch off Peer to Peer I get ~700 kB/sec 1 minute out of every 5 when the mirrors deign to send some packets my way.
I paid EUR 60,- (through battle.net) for a game which retails for USD 60,- in the states, a nice ~29% screw-you-we-don't-like-your-dirty-foreign-currency bonus for Blizzard. For that kind of money I would expect Blizzard to put up a few decent servers (at least for the first few months when demand is high) so one can download the game in a proper timeframe.
I'm sure I'll be all smiles and giggles once I get to play the game, but this being my first digital purchase I'm sorely disappointed.
