    Yea in Canada (west coast anyways) we have 600mbps for $100 a month which is pretty decent.
    I hate you. I get 25 mbs (which is almost always 15-20 mbs) for probably around the same price.

    Does 8.3 supposedly have encrypted content like 8.2.5 did to prevent spoilers? Other than the two cinematics I mean.
    Because with there being no 8.3.5 I'm feeling like there's an epilogue of sorts missing from the BfA picture and some unresolved threads.
    Azerite/Silithus and the Calia/Derek arc in particular.

    It’s not necessarily ADDED (although wow is already like 50-60gb so...)

    A solid portion is probably edits and changes to files that are being replaced
    Do not ask questions for which you do not want the answers.

    You need better interwebs! Do you live somewhere remote or do they just not offer good internet where you are?

    I remember it being 20-25GB or so. Probably because it was mopaq format instead of the much more efficient structure they use now.

    I remember starting my DLs (During WotLK) before I left for work, just to see them finish by the time I got home in the Evening. I don't miss those days either. xD

    thanks for heads up, but was expected really.

    Are servers down for another 3 hours? holy shit.

    I have Factorio, Offworld Trading Company, Europa Universalis 4, Fallout: New Vegas, FFXIV, and WoW installed on my 256 GB laptop, so it's not crazy.

    That's what I thought, didn't it swell to like 60-65gb in Wrath before they changed the format? I'm actually still shocked when the entire Vanilla client is 5gb I believe. It's impressive compression, at least to my more or less uninformed eyes.

    Laptop or not, it's almost inexcusable to only have 128 GB of space when you can get a 1 TB drive for less than what you'd pay for a nice dinner.

    Considering some series in highest quality are downloaded for 21GB, this is nothing.

    The computer might not be that new. It's a laptop and a mac, so it's really not as simple as just buying a new drive. It probably costs more than the computer is worth to upgrade and they might not be able to afford it.

    It's worth mentioning that CoD 2019 is like 150GB.

    If you have the PTR client installed I think it uses that and so there’s virtually no download needed when it goes live. It was all just magically up to date here.

    Reading about other people's internet speeds makes me so sad! I'm still on a 2mbit connection.... lol

    Takes a lot for the void theme overlay covering up the same shit we've seen before. Just like the copy and paste caves ooo this one's dark!

    I don't know if I'd call it remote but its a town of only around 1k people but there is only 2 internet companies here. Wasn't till like 2 years ago that they upgraded me from 10 mbs to 25.

    10 mins is more than enough for a wild ride...
