Purpose of p2p sharing?

I know depending on seeders/leechers you can have really fast downloads, but are there any more upsides?

You obviously know nothing because P2P=/=torrents

It is nice when downloading games or large patches for games because it offloads a lot of stress from the developer's servers allowing you to download the data quickly right away when everyone else is trying to download the data.

I remember when Diablo 3 came out I was getting twice the speed from the p2p part of the download as I was from Blizzard's servers.
