Before you link or tag anything - I’ve read them all and have done all of the potential fixes. None of them worked; it was just a Blizz Launcher/Server issue.
MW2 update took me 3 fkin hours. Average download speed of 3mbps. I have 1G fiber internet. I was downloading updates on Steam at 300mpbs WHILE waiting on the MW2 update to finish. Once MW2 finally finished, I updated WoW. Sat in “initializing” for about 15 minutes before actually going through. Average download speed of 150kbps.
I do not have any download limits on, I even tried disabling firewalls and other shields during the downloads. I literally tried everything I knew to do other than driving to CA and hard wiring my PC to Blizz systems and manually moving the files over.
I know it wasn’t an ISP issue or any DNS or log issues because, like I said, download speeds were normal on other applications. And I don’t have any viruses or malware, either.
What kind of sick joke is this? Multi-billion-dollar company that can’t provide the network infrastructure needed for their consumers to be able to readily and efficiently update their software? Seriously?
