I dont know about others f2p games, but planetside 2 first install is something like 9-13GB, and the patches (monthly) are usually in the 400mbs and hotfixes in the 30mbs.

Yeah, BC2 was just as bad. Still takes, like, an hour to update from install on 6mbit.


This is one of the reasons I love having a 50 Mb/s connection.

Where do you live? I live in a heavily populated city and pay $35 a month for 1Mbps internet. Do you pay upwards of $100 a month?

I remember using the better part of a day/night downloading the shareware version of a game from a BBS/website, so it doesn't bother as much, though it is somewhat of an annoyance.

I've seen PS2 patches up to 4 GB. That's not par for the course, but it happens. If you're in the test server it's even worse. Walk away from that for a month and you're greeted with up to 8 GB of patches.

I never had to patch any ps2 game. probably because it wasn't possible.
