1. If you are currently re-downloading the client, and are in initial "downloading" phase (around 11GB), you can exit the launcher to interrupt this download and play 1.2 tomorrow without having to complete it. If you reach any "installing" phase, you will need to complete the re-download.
I just loaded the launcher, as a post on reddit confirmed that 1.2 was available for download (i.e. login/patch servers are online).

Last night I was on 11.1GB remaining of the original ~11.8GB client redownload, and as instructed in the sticky, part of which is quoted above, I stopped the download and closed the client.

Now that 1.2 is downloadable, the launcher is continuing to download the remaining 11.1GB.

The reason I chose to not redownload the client is that I would be downloading for ~30 hours at my internet's download speed. Now it looks like I cannot play 1.2 for another 30 hours from now?

Note: I definitely did NOT reach an installing phase for the ~12GB client redownload.

Same for me. I downloaded the game originally so have no disks.

When it screwed up last night and started the 12GB download, my only option was to leave the PC on overnight and still not be finished in time for 1.2 server uptime (my internet isn't great atm).

Then we were told clearly in a sticky that we could avoid the issue by closing the launcher mid-11GB download, which I did. Now it isn't working as we were told.

I don't think you'll have much of a choice, unless you have disks. To play it safe, I suggest that anyone with this issue should just start downloading it now. Yes it sucks, but if it were me, I'd much rather have the d/l started because you can always cancel it if a dev discloses an easier way to do it.

The reason they had yall stop redownloading yesterday is because if you would have finished the download/restarted your client it would start the download over again. repeatedly and forever. sucks that you gotta redownload everything however.

Slightly annoyed that I was planning on doing that last night and leaving the PC to download it while I slept.

Instead Bioware told me not to because it would "fix" it. Apparently not.
