Every time there is an update, or even a small hotfix like just recently, the launcher forces me to download 10 Gigs of data, which I believe is too large for a hotfix. Does this apply to anyone else?

I normally wouldn't mind that much, but the download server seems to be unstable. My internet speed can download 10 Gigs of data within 1 or 2 hours give and take, but in this case the download can take over one day because sometimes the download just slowed to a crawl or even halted despite my internet working fine.

Is this large download for every update intentional? I sure hope not. Other online games I play or have played only downloads the changes, which keeps the download amount minimal. If this continues some players with rather limited internet might get turned off eventually.

Yup, it does download 10 gigs, but I don't experience any slowdowns. Took about 10 mins to patch.

I guess Dreadnought does not have a "delta patcher", which is not that easy to implement, that's why only big games have it. I guess if the game ever goes popular, a delta patcher will soon follow.

200MB fiber optic conection, and it can take awhile. Patching is somewthing that can be improved.

To be fair thought, did a clean reinstall of windows yesterday, and Dreadnought downloaded and installed in about 3 mins. Go figuer.
