Why is there a bit raider web client.exe in my game folder?

Hi LoonyRon,

We have added a streaming mode to the Launcher for new installations which utilises BitRaider technology so this is nothing to be alarmed about.

I was wondering what that was, I kept uninstalling it thinking it was something to do with uTorrent...

You need to get your facts straight before you comment.

I have a concern with BitRaider Web Client also, but not the same concern as posted here. It seems that when the launcher is running, or for that matter the game itself, BitRaider is using almost 50% of my CPU usage. This is on a 2500k i5, i see no reason one .exe should ever require this many resources, especially if its meant to make it "easier".

all i can tell you is since they implimented this to the game have none of you noticed how jumpy the game is now, i have for sure and when i went to do a fresh reinstall of swtor to cure it this is constantly running, hmmmm.
