I can't say for certain, but you'll probably have to validate each time.
Hopefully not, although it wasn't as long as I thought it would

Not being negative about the idea, it's a nice change, was just wondering if we'll notice a difference
Servers will most likely go down, I'd expect us to get the usual in-game warning of "servers will go down in 15 minutes". The difference is that with steam we'll be able to download the patch much faster than with the launcher.

As an example here is my speed with yesterday's download, and while I never took a screenshot of the usual launcher it only reached 10 mb/s at best. Steam peaked at 22 which is if I recall my internet's usual download speed, regardless I'm glad I'll be able to download things slightly faster now and can only imagine this as an improvement to the people in steam complaining about slow download times.
