can i get a reason why blizz downloader takes forever to download this, when i disable peer to peer it doesnt even connect and just doesnt download at all, in peer to peer mode its slow as balls because the upload speeds of everyone are terrible

Found a post on this last night, didn't have this problem myself but this might help you.

For windows 7, go to control panel -> network and internet -> internet options -> connections -> LAN settings -> uncheck automatically detect settings.

Apparently worked for a lot of people with snail download speeds.

Go to internet explorer -> tools -> internet options -> Connections -> Lan settings

Uncheck Automatically Detect Settings, and hit OK as many times as you need to get out of IE.

Start downloader again

Leave P2P on in the downloader

In his defense, i'm having to re-download it because of the missing/corrupted files that I received when I downloaded it a while back. I'm sure MANY other people are in this same scenario.

Except the installer wouldn't run until today, and that is when the game itself downloads through the launcher.

OP, a bazillion people are trying to install this, cool your heals and go for a walk or take a nap or something, it will install eventually.

If you have any sort of antivirus going just disable it for the download, mine went from 25~KB/s to full speed after i did that, and I just re-enabled it later.

Also do this: Uncheck "Automatically Detect Connection Settings)
You get there by going to your settings in your Browser (I'm using Chrome). It will be in: "Internet Properties".

- From there go to "Connections".
- Then click on "LAN Settings".
- UNCHECK "Automatically Detect Settings".

Good thing I downloaded it yesterday. I had peer to peer disabled but it still took about 4 hrs at the least.

don't worry, you really only have to get about half way into the yellow before you can play it semi-reliably so it should be done before the servers go live. but yeah as others have said, don't wait till the last minute to do things.
