Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts Discussion
"It’s going to be a big one folks! The 2.500 patch weighs in at close to 1.5GB, as it contains all of the art and information to allow you to play the game with players who have purchased Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor. This allows us not to separate our player base between our stand alone expansions. We’ll be posting the full patch notes next week.
Our recent 2.400 patch release demonstrated that our patch server has difficulty in meeting the initial demand from the thousands of users who will be updating right away, and that was just a 100MB patch. We’re making some changes to the server in anticipation of the upcoming 2.500 patch release but here are some suggestions on avoiding long waits with the giant patch:
1) Alternatives, mirror sites and torrents. There will be alternative places to download the patch from other than our server. We’ll share some alternative sources with you as they come online. You will likely experience faster transfer rates from them.
2) Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor is 2.500. If you have the game pre-ordered or plan on buying it early, the release date is April 9, you can save yourself the download by just installing with your DVD.
3) Be patient if you’re downloading the patch from our servers. Start your download and then go enjoy some movies with buttered popcorn. Even those of you with fantastically fast internet connections will experience a less than stellar transfer rate as the initial crush of users hits our server.
As you were. "
That being said, go out and buy Tales of Valor, the $30 is well spent for more content, basically instant 2.500 "patch" because that's what 2.500 is all about, and all that's left to download is of course the update 2.501
