This piece of crap has been downloading and restarting ALL DAY!!!! Just downloads at 20kb/s for an hour and reaches about 2% then restarts.
Won't let me play the game either as it's not ready
I just downloaded the file from your link in 30 secs flat.... Kaspersky has just had a heart attack and gone absolutely ballistic saying it's a virus!
Seriousy.... for the life of me... could someone please even attempt to explain why Steam would completely annihilate their servers for absolutely no reason????
Sorry for all you having trouble with steam - can't beleive they're doing it this way, seems illogical.
First impressions on the basis of playing a couple of skirmish games as Brits v AI:
Sounds changed for many of the weapons in particular, definitely more beefy feel to a lot of them.
No more retreating Brits behind moving HQ (damn! That's scuppered my tactics on a few maps!). Now if you retreat a squad before the HQ is completely secured they will follow a route to the default truck spawn point instead.
Piat seems to be far more accurate (thank god). Vickers seems to supress much better now.
Overall seems quite polished (especially the new sounds). Need longer to assess it but unfortunately got to go to work first.
That might be true but from my experience yesterday something was very wrong. From the moment I turned on the PC I was stopped by Steam from playing a game I've paid for. That's no problem for half an hour or so.... but for almost 12 hours? For a simple little 100mb patch that I downloaded in 30 secs from another link??
I wouldn't even mind if I was given a choice but it just completely locks you out of your own game for a whole day!
Add to that the sheer stupidity of knowingly hammering their own servers so everyone gets drip fed... makes my head bleed lol!
What annoys me is they have a kind of power over when I can and can't play my own game in my own time... and they abuse it like they did yesterday. I mean can you imagine Sony stopping everyone using their PS3 for a whole day, without giving anyone a choice?
