I've download Main Assets 1, Main Assets 21, and now I'm on English Assets 1. Am I almost close?

How much more GB do I need? Please, I would love to know.
Waiting patiently for The Old Republic to download.
[Dec 25, 2:24 PM] 26 GB more to go. I pity me.
[Dec 25, 7:49 PM] Just finished Main Assets 1, 12.2 GB more to go
[Dec 25, 11:39 PM] Wow, just finished.

Be careful, if something ****s up (which it inevitably does), the ******* launcher is going to have to download EVERYTHING again.

This is literally the worst coding I have seen in years.

Yah I started the download at 1pm and went to sleep at 11pm and it wasnt done till I checked in the morning. And it still wouldnt let me play cause I had to get and active subscription even though you get 1 month free

Started dowloading at 4am 12/30/2011 after getting my subscription at 310 kbs had to restart the download multiple times it is now 6am 12/31/2011 and I have about 1.6g of english assets 1 left go to, will I be able to play today at all or is there going to be alot more issues and huge downloads, I'm down to 28 days left on the "free" 30 2 of which (assuming it doesn't finish today) basically I didn't get, will GM's be refunding game time or are they the types who say, "You had access to it, even if the game isn't installed on your computer" kind of people?

The big ones are Main Asset 1 (11GB), English asset 1 (4.7GB), Main asset 2X (about 200MB) and English asset 2X (about 80MB). After that its 10's of MB's for the game client.

The last big one (Main Asset 2X) is the one that fails frequently due to some bug in the install and if it does fail you'll find yourself back at Main Asset 1 downloading 16GB again.
There used to be a repair for launcher problems here, but BioWare Customer Support has banned me from posting the link. My advice is if the launcher does not work is get a refund while you still can.

3 hours? I convinced my friend to get the game now but he has roughly a 100 Kbps internet speed. We've been downloading the game for 2 1/2 days. He's just now almost done with English Assets 1.

Entire game is roughly 20gb so it depends on your download speed, files are compressed so it will be less but how much less not sure.
