    Does the GW2 Beta client have P2P enabled?

    Anyone know if the client has P2P enabled and if so how i disable it? Im all for sharing but like many others my university has a strict policy on P2P

    Thanks

    The download downloads from multiple sources, but I do not think you upload anything.
    Pretty sure it's more like downloading from multiple servers than downloading from multiple people.
    (Like how it says 700KB/s, but it is downloading at that speed from 3 locations so it's much faster.)

    Hard to explain without actually knowing much about it, but think of it as downloading from a website and clicking three download links instead of one, but them all merging into one download speed. Not technically P2P, esp if you're not actually uploading anything.

    If you updated the client yesterday it will now display the download speed correctly.

With that said the sylvari are made of lettuce. If I twist up some cabage leaves too look like a human, it doesnt make it monohuman.
