    Hello Everyone!

     

    I just got the ESO Beta Key, and i was woundering how long it takes to download the game. I’m not expecting it to download in 20 minutes. I just want to see how long it took everyone esle to download it

     

    Thanks

    P.S. FOR THE QUEEN!!

    It depends on your internet speed — it’s going to be ~30GB, so get started on it right away no matter what your speed is.

    Guys, I already had the client installed since I was in last betas, now it’s asking me to download 21 more go!

    Do you know if it’s downloading it all again or is it just a patch with misleading information?

    Depends on your connexion really. Client is around 30gb so you’ll just have to see how fast you dl this with your connexion.

    This is strange. Verify you didn’t change the game region in the launcher option.

    yeah, my download was about 50 mb this time…. word is that EU regions may have a bigger download, but this test is for the NA regions only, so EU players will want to be on the NA server this time.

    I did, but then went back to US servers. Now it still launches the download, whatever I do … I guess I’ll have to download again … :(((

    It’s been download for half an hour and it’s only at 1% my download speed is 500-700 KB/s. I don’t know much about software but is that a really terrible speed?

    @Elkhorn @Mohk @elderiii This beta is the first one where the EU server is actually available, so if your region was set to EU previously you were still directed to the US server. So now that the client launches and it can actually access the EU server, it’ll start downloading the EU client.

     

    EDIT: erm.. the EU server will not be available, but that’s still the reason you’re downloading the EU version of the game. You can only play beta on the US version.

    I have friends that are on slow dsl and it takes them a day and a night to download it, so it’s a good bet to have it take a similar amount of time if you’re only getting 700kb/s.

    I wonder why EU and US/NA will have different clients. It’s not because of language and server asdresses should be matter of simple config file …

    Censorship ? That happens for asian games i belive EU and US got same law in this matter  … so what’s going on Oo?

    I read on the official website that the EU servers wouldn’t be available for this beta.

    My problem is that I set the launcher back to US, deleted the EU folder, but it’s still downloading a lot to the US original folder which is now 72go!! :p

    Sounds like trouble…

    I averaged 1% every half an hour too. Don’t worry though, at some point (I think somewhere around 30%) it finished downloading and sped through to about 75% with installing etc, then it slowed up again to download a patch. The numbers might be a bit wrong but basically, not every % is download so it won’t take you 50 hours. Took me around 17 hours at same speeds as you.

    Ironically when they had less people in beta that’s almost exactly how long it took me to download the beta.  My internet tore the bits down in about 20 minutes lol.  If you’re trying to download now I would kick it off ASAP and make sure your downloader runs at night.  We all may see very slow downloads and patching speeds since there are SO many people trying to download the game.

    With that said the patch between last stress test and this must have been small because I didn’t even notice it patch at all it pulled it down so fast yesterday.

    I have question.My pc is ok for ESO, but my dsl is kinda slow, (but fast enough to play game). So downloading 60 GB will be really awful situation for me. Anyone got information about DVD version of game –  how many GB i will have to download with DVD version of game. With some knowledge i will make some preparation for launch, cba to download game for 1 week :)

     

    Edit: i have oportunity to play beta
