4.3.2 PTR and New File Optimization Tech
Clearly this has no relevance for most of your player base, which have no (or an unrealistically large) cap, but for those of us who don't have that luxury, it would be nice if we had a choice in a well-meaning but ultimately unnecessary optimisation.
Disabled KIS - no help.
Defraged PC - no help.
Shut down all programs but WoW Launcher - no help.
Yeah, I'm !@#$%in... I'm also posting this in case someone else is looking for ways to help speed this thing up.. move along...
Knowing my luck, there's 3 guys sitting at Blizzard updating everyone in real time....
I agree with previous posts - let us determine if we wanna do this or not.
Can't believe this was not discovered during PTR...
Read over at Wowhead a great suggestion, which is pretty decent.
Shut down the launcher. Go into your Wow directory and run the background downloader. That will move things along quite quickly. When that's done, launch Wow and let the updater do it's thing.
