Warhammer Online: Age of Terrible Patching

Posted by Haethos (310 posts) -

Seeing as how I just recently played WoW, I should know better than to expect flawless patching from MMO's. However, the patching for the free trial of WAR is intolerable. Free trials are meant for new players; it shouldn't require me to open up "patch.cfg" in notepad (running in administrator mode) and edit lines. Judging from the widespread consternation on forums for people trying out the free trial with the same error that I'm getting, it's not limited to me.

I'm still looking forward to trying it out (it's downloading a >3GB patch right now, go figure), but my trigger finger will be a little itchy, and I'll be just a little more ready to just toss this MMO by the wayside if it seems bad at first blush.
