.Man,games are getting so sophisticated these days.I can remember my mind being blown with the size of the downloads for games like Tera,Aion,GW2 etc.I can see gamers running into issues if their ISP has a data cap.I feel for gamers with slower connection downloading a client like this.I'm content with  150mb up and down.Will upgrade when the isp has an upgrade deal.I have a feeling in 5 years the current speed of google fiber will be dwarfed by new tech.

Holy.... I am suddenly not looking forward to getting this game. I am going to end up going to a friends house who pays WAY too much for internet just to download it. I dont know what I am going to do.

Yeah, not a good deal for those on capped Internet plans.  I'm also worried about load times, with that much data.  Is it going to have to load from disk all the time while I play?

Exactly, what are the servers taking from us? nothing by the looks of it, 100% of the work going onto our machines YAY xD
