    same here, restarted launcher multiple times, always get 50kb/sec or something, that's ridiculous slow...

    Agreed. This is far too slow. 100-150 KB/s since 9:30 am CST on a 60 Mb/s connection and am only at 40%.

    so i have not used steam in 2 years or so. but since i did purchase sota from there i thought i would try. i first needed to d/l steam then update. Now i am downloading 6gig of shroud game full install and then presumably i will be able to patch it. and i have a feeling i will not even be close to 50% done with a simple patch. kinda sad when they are for the same game.

    You *should* be able to run a non-Steam game through Steam launcher (add as "non-Steam game"), only difference is you don't get achievements and Steam overlay etc. Not sure if you can download it though using Steam doing that, because the destination folder won't be in the Steam folder.

    *yeah you'll have to link it to download using their servers.

    For those who do not want to link their account to steam:
    Just install Vuze Bittorrent and open the .torrent file in the sota/download folder.
    I got the patch quick, downloaded with 5mb/sec, many seeders there.

    not wanting to start a debate about this, but i'm curious as to why you don't want to do this.
    from my exxperience, you simply cannot sell that account once it is linked, and that is the only real negative aspect of it.

    you can still play unconnected too, it doesn't require you to play on steam or login with steam credentials.

    are you sure ? took me like 15 min to download but the actual applying of the patch is taking longer . Are we going from 480 to 481 only or are there more than 1 patch ?

    OK so when you download the patch from a torrent client. Which is super fast by the way. I have been waiting 5 hours at 30 percent now with the launcher. After three minutes the patch is 65% done. Do I just put it in the Sota downloads and restart the Launcher ? Ok So I did just drop it in the folder restarted the launcher and it is working great. That stinks I have been waiting all day to get in there. Strange how a regular torrent client downloads it so fast. But the launcher takes forever. I guess it is because the players do not share through the launcher like I do.

    close launcher, download from torrent, copy/paste new downloaded file into the download folder (overwrite the existing file), then start launcher again, worked fine here on both computers.
