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.


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.


lol Planetside 2 not Playstation 2

5GB is about 5-10 minutes of downloading. thats about the same time as you could play with your dog, make a cup of tea, or give your mother a phonecall and tell her you love her


I wish.

That's a solid 5 hours or so for me.

Not everyone has internet that good available >_> I live in the 2nd or 3rd largest city in the state and the best I could get is like 20-25 mbps.

Edit: Yeah, 2nd largest city.

The only F2P game I play is TF2 and the updates are usually a couple hundred MB only.

I was just looking at satellite internet options as I figured the people who pay a ton for really crappy internet should look into it.

Data limits on satellite aren't worth considering for gamers. The latency inherent with having to bounce a signal out to a satellite and then back down to the surface along with all the aerial interference possibilities up to and including solar flares/activity already render satellite a decidedly suboptimal internet choice for gamers.

If I lived in an area that didn't have cable or DSL service I'd pick dialup before satellite, though I'd prefer mobile broadband to dialup for obvious reasons.

Just because somebody has it worse doesn't mean your problems don't matter.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.
