4.3.2 PTR and New File Optimization Tech
There's a reason they say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
Now, on the other hand, there's currently a major latency issue that is affecting many people right now, many people on my realm are complaining of it, myself included. This just ties in with the general 'Blizz fails' theory.
$12,000,000,000 DOES NOT BUY COMPETENCE, RIGHT BLIZZ?
As to the tech itself - great idea and well done. Sadly it seems that a lot of the complaints mis-understood how this deviates from prior patching.
Not sure about the SSD complaints early in the thread - something is definitely wrong with that rig when you compare it to my Raid of 2x30GB ssds (early gen SSDs at that, if you note the build era) which I've had pretty much maxed (90~100%) ever since build...and have yet to see any negative consequences. Hell, win7 and wow are enough to crush a 60G boot-drive. Perhaps people with SSD problems haven't disabled virtual memory like I did on day1.../shrug.

I don't like that idea. It takes too long and there should be an option to postpone it if it's going to be done that frequently.
Whoopdie !@#$ing doo.
Thats how I want to spend my time and money, being stuck at 1% trying to "optimize". Ugh

It only does if you tried to patch, by running wow.exe like I have for the last six/whatever years:
I made this mistake just now, before reading posts about this patch. This one breaks your wow if you do that. Now I have a 14.9 gig download. Ah well, only 10 gig to go!
So I changed my shortcut to launcher.exe now.
