I downloaded the patch around 10:30 this morning and had no issues so I guess I was just lucky. So sorry to hear all you guys are having problems. Don't fret too much as when it does get downloaded you probably wont want to play for a few days anyway because of the horrible performance issues. Currently keeping me from playing.

Thank you dude sweat.

The community for SWTOR is truly great. Sadly, it has to spend so much time making up for the developers shortcomings. I mean seriously, we got a patch that won't load, that when you do get it to load the shadows rather than being improved have to be turned off, campanion headslots don't work, and as a bonus they killed the GTN. After all that we rely on other customer for a work around to be able to play at all.

I can't express how disappointing this roll out is.

The speed was fine for me, it took about 5-7 mins to download the whole thing.

You guys just need better internet service, sorry to say but it's true.

I have a 50 mbps connection and it's always fine.

This clearly is not their fault.

Two things:

1. test your connection using to Austin, TX
2. if your having fluctuations, download pingplotter from and find out where your problem exists.

Add the following line to the hosts file, and then save it:

Run the launcher again to see if this worked around the issue. If it did, it is definitely an internet routing issue, as the IP address listed is based in the USA!
does anyone have the correct Server-IP for Europe / Germany ?

Thanks !

All the best.
