Deebs, the above metioned Torrent link is from GoA's tracker, so you can save yourself the trouble and maybe just promote the Torrent from FH or so.

Am wondering why they just didn't put it up too.

If I am to seed then I need the files else I am just providing a tracker with no data until user's start sharing. Only worthwhile if the GOA tracker is dying...

That site looked like I had to sign up? If you have the torrent file can you attach it to a message for me?

The torrent as extracted from GOAs downloader: http://draylor.net/war.torrent

Its the same deal as the assorted WoW/etc downloaders in the past, open the .exe in any binary editor, find the torrent section (starts d8:announce), cut the rest and save that to a file.

Well you can say thank you for the 100000 people who wanted the download just so they can patch on 1st open beta day..which i will prefer aswell compared to start downloading the whole thing on OB day 1 :)

It was made very clear that the client was available for download in readiness for the start of open beta. They even went as far as politely asking people not in OB to leave it for now so the OB people could get it. Simliary OB has been set for 7th September for along time so unless your calendar is way out then I suspect you didn't read any of the accompanying information regarding what this download actually was.

Runs under the window and saves the free day!! :lol:

On a side note, im to lazy to look it up right now, but im pretty sure , as we are community based on info anyways, it was said sveral times that the servers are down after PW until OB starts, which is the 7th spt.

To minimize network congestion of course. It'd be foolish to only put it up on the first day of Open Beta.

Well, using the official client I'm stuck at 99%. I got there very quickly but rthat's no use if I don't complete the download.

If and when it does complete what is the strategy for torrenting this Deebs? You gonna go with one of the links posted here or what as I can upload real fast from work?

99% seems actually 100%. Check your WAR folder if you have all the files, .exe included and try running it. You can opt to have the download window stand so it seeds abit, and it was said that after a while it jumps to 100%.
But 99% seems ready.

I can't seed using the GOA client, which link are we all going from so I can use the same one?

Edit: people did a good job of extracting the torrent, they both point to same. :) Starting it up now.

wonder if that last 1% is verifying the files or something?
Could be, my poor old laptop is teh slow and the client is not exactly lightning fast at anything. But at least we have the opportunity to download in advance. :)

Dunno flin, im working trough the huge thread over at WARalliance, and so far people said 99%=100% and can be started to install.
Simply checking if you have all the files and can start the xex should be ok i would say.

On a side note, my download was complete but in my download directory i was missing files..then i read abit...and found a new directory on my Desktop screen with full files lol

Know how you feel i got up a few times in the night to check mainly because i didn't want to leave the PC running while i went to work.

No-one absolutely anywhere will be playing until 7th September. There are no EU servers running at the moment. Everything is currently being shifted onto the new 9 million euro data centre which I believe is in Lille.

As a side note I've got the torrent running on uTorrent at about 1 MB/s up. About 983 seeds and 6500 peers atm in total but I'm only connected to a lucky few in the DHT and peer exchange pools but it all helps.

I was wondering, is it possible for us to add the FH tracker-line to the currently already existing torrent alot of people are using atm?
Hmm that's why I asked if Deebs wanted to keep it FH only.
