A patch too far

#1jiminatrixPosted 4/13/2012 6:22:12 PM
Downloading a 800mb patch every other day?
Or deleting the game and moving on with ur life?

Used to be a good game. Now its a mess.

Bought the game at launch. Since then its been a patch nightmare. Deny it if u like.
The changes they make could be made via a tiny patch. But they wanna make sure ur still alive and force the best part of a gb on u. Every other day.
I recommend people don't buy this.

Don't buy it cause once u do u'll be locked into a never ending update patchathon.
Balance before we release? or make u all our testers and patch like we're being sponsored?
They patch, break something and then patch it back to how it used to be.
At 800mb a patch thats a lot of DLing to make things how they were b4 u started patching.
If u think this is after-sale support then good luck to ya. U'll be patching till the cows come home.
Games don't need a patch every other day. If u think this is good customer support and like to DL huge updates several times a week then do just that.
If u don't want to be an unpaid tester then avoid this mess.

We're pretty happy with the constant stream of free content and patches (albeit, not all have been welcomed with open arms).

You might enjoy Terraria, especially considering how the dev recently abandoned the game, so you won't ever be seeing another update again.

Most of the patches I see are like 250mb, but even 800mb is no inconvenience. It only takes a few minutes to download the patch, I can open up Steam, and let the game patch while I go to the bathroom or fill up a cup of water. I'm glad to see the post release support, and the new features they've added in since release. Keeps me interested in what the game will be next. I haven't come across anything that breaks the game for me, so I'm more than happy to keep playing.

The patches download quickly, at least for me, and if you don't want to patch the game nobody is forcing you to. Just turn automatic patching off. The Steam forum is filled with people whining about patches and DLC, so I'm sorry if I seem annoyed.

The patches are so large due to the way Steam will only push whole files (see TF2)

Dropped it ages ago when they introduced the overpriced pay to win dlc.
