I stopped playing this game about a month after it came out. A few days ago I decided to give it another go playing a different class.
Three days. That's how long I've been trying to download this game.
I've looked up multiple "fixes" aka hoops that users have tried jumping through for years to try and get this launcher to download the game. Why is it, in the year of our lord two thousand and twenty, that this launcher still isn't working properly and users and still trying to get it to work after so many years?
Even though it says it's downloading (at like 10 mb/s) it still says it has 218,662 files to go since yesterday?
My internet is very good and I don't have this problem with anything else I've downloaded.
Has there seriously never been a way to get this to download faster in all the years since this game released? I'm able to play (but it apparently doesn't download while I'm playing) but some things seems to run very slow and don't load some textures (like the bigger towns and such).
So, I guess what I'm wondering is: will it every finish downloading? Is there any way to get it to download faster? I've tried turning off my firewall, unchecking the QoS, changing the streaming option to "max", running as admin, and a couple other things that I've forgotten now. I'm not super computer savvy so I won't try some of the more difficult things I've read in fear that I'll mess something up. If it just stops downloading I guess It'll just stay that way, but I was hoping that someone would have some better ideas at getting it to work.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read my frustrations and in advance for any helpful suggestions
I'm playing on a 4 year old windows PC with windows 7 if that helps.
(If this belongs somewhere else can a moderator move it there please? and thank you!)
