There is no point downloading the BETA unless you were invited into it and recieved your activation code. Otherwise your just wasting download time.

Is it just me or does 600 Megs of a download not seem a bit unreasonable?

You'd think they'd burn some CDs and post them out to people!

50% through the download.
And your 512K connect will mean bugger all - the ftp servers are swamped.

what hobbes said, you do need the activation code which was sent from Funcom to all the beta testers. Otherwise youre wasting your bandwith.

Kharn, they sent out the beta 3 version on cd to all the testers, but since the game fits into the massively multiplayer game genre, i dont think Funcom could afford to send all the players a copy of the new version, or could they?

Horray! I got on the B4 test. Has anyone completed d/l'd the 600mb beta, yet? If so... I'd definitely pay to get it burnt, and posted. In the meantime I'll just continue d/l'ing it. Thx.

They were when it was first announced. I'm sitting on a 10meg line I was peaking at 30K. I tried most of the servers and they were all slow. It's probably fast now that most of the people got it.
