4.3.2 PTR and New File Optimization Tech
Yeah gotta learn to look after my computer..............
The Old Republic downloading now.
I applaud the tidy up of old game files, but agree that the option to do it later would be *much* appreciated. Or, at the very least, an advance warning (eg: email) to the effect of "on this date you game will take longer than usual to get running - we suggest cranking it up early while eating breakkie / picking your nose / yakking to the wife to avoid screaming at your PC to hurry the hell up". Same thing with patches - we don't always get to read up on their exact release date (too busy screaming at idiots in LFR & VP capping all our toons for that).
Kinda gutted I zipped home at lunchtime for a sneaky 45mins gametime to only get to spend the next 45mins waiting for this... /sigh

Just curious. How long would you wait for a 15 minute process go before stopping it? If not an hour, 2? 3? 1 day?

FROST MAGES ARE A JOKE stun frostbolt snare frostbolt blink frostbolt stun frostbolt DEAD it is a joke im a blood dk which are OP heaps and i cant even touch a frost mage. i want to unintall this game i only pvp due to the lag i get in raids an pvp isnt even fair if there was 1 frost mage vs two other classes... NERF THEM its sickening PS what on earth have you done to pallys? what did they ever do to you they have been there since the start of warcraft an there are meant to be awesome n now they are terrible... i heal n half your mana is gone seriously how can the compete... my thoughts go out to all ret pallys. and my resent goes out to all frost mages.... FIX THIS GAME OR ME AND ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE WILL STOP PLAYING and all you will be left with is a whole heap of frost mages running around.
This is the wrong place to discuss class balance.
01/31/2012 06:22 PMPosted by OranthallOptimization....Really? I'm a LAN administrator and if I decided to "optimize" all of my end users like this well.... I'd be fired. I sure hope someone at Blizzard got a pink slip today. You did a marvelous job pissing of your paying customers. There goes 1 million more subscriptions lost to the competition..
What Blizz does and what you do are 2 completely different things. So leave the comic book guy attitude bay. If you don't like it, play another game, but don't hop on the forum just to act all high and mighty because something didn't work for you. I find it irritating when people like your self hop on here throwing around what you do for a living and attempting to apply it to what a GLOBAL COMPANY does, as if what you do has any bearing on a large scale implementation. Check your ego, then form an opinion.
As for the optimization, it worked fine for me, so maybe you should look at your gear. Even if you think it's "Top of the line 1337 pwning" whatever, these things happen. Nothing is flawless. Every company has these issues. Hell, I had them doing Office 2010 roll outs, some machines just don't like it. So chill. Don't you have an install disc? Do you not back up your install? These are things a LAN Admin should be doing anyways.
FYI: It says 15 minutes, mine took about 45 on a raid 0 array, then I moved it back to my 32gb flash drive without problems. So again, check your gear buddy.
