    It's been a few hours now... Still no patch notes...

    We know we got snow, but that wasn't 54MB worth of a change (EC). Did we get the publish that was on Origin?

    40 Meg of the EC patch was the String Dictionary (which I think is the whole file being replaced as that seems to be the constant size when that files changes), so snow map + localized text strings.

    How times have changed. We used to worry about sending a 70mb map file down to the client because it would take too long.

    Now we send 40mb of strings every time we update.

    *snicker*

    Ah, it's so nice that broadband has crushed the days of "bbzz zzzippt crrrruunk cruuuunk zzzip zzzzzip bbbbbzzzzzt..."
