I have yet to play the game since the transfer. I have 1gbps internet and my speed test is normal, however my game WILL not patch. It either gives me some error and tells me i need stable connection (im using ethernet) or when it does manage to work after a minute it goes down to like .56 kb/s.ive reset my pc, completeley uninstalled the game, ive reset my internet, ive disconeccted every other device from my network, i have no idea what to do.
Unfortunately, I'm in the same situation. The Launcher says Patching but is slower than molasses in January. Not as fast as you, but I have a fast connection (500MB). I submitted a ticket yesterday with screenshots and dxdiag info. The highest I've gotten was 21% and that was over 24 hours.
Any fix for this? Wanted to get back into this game, Transfered my account and running into the same issue. I'm stuck at 1% trying to patch what I can only assume is the launcher. Got Fiber internet (500DL/UL), cleared DNS, reset network, uninstalled, updated computer, turned off AV, the works. Still nothing. Left it running for over 48 hours and nothing changes. Sent a ticket, but I fear for a month response.
Keep doing this until you get past the initial 1%. Sometimes I had to delete the same file repeatedly and restart the launcher. Eventually the download will continue past the trouble files and your patching will continue smoothly.
Patches used to take minutes. Now they take hours. I have a 155 Mbps download speed. The patch is downloading at 5 KBps. This has been happening for the last few patches. I have googled the issue and tried all of the solutions provided (turn off IPv6, disable multi-threaded rendering and Launcher GPU acceleration in the launcher) and still 5 KBps. What else can I do to fix this?
The last few patches and updates have really been slow for me/also have a 100 mb/s (on speedtest) but on downloads the highest it went was 3 mb/s but 90% of the time its mostly on the hundreds Kilobytes and on this patch only 20-30 ?
Downloads are slow because the servers are slow. My down speed is 200x faster than the 500 KB/s I'm getting on this update right now. No money spent on hosting servers (peer hosted) and seemingly very little money spent on update distribution servers, at least on xbox side.
UPDATE: 200-500 KB/s The ~250 I'm getting now is an average including all of the faster download periods. I've been downloading the same 10 MB for the last 10 minutes. I estimate that I'm actually getting less then 100 KB/s down. Now in ISDN speeds, rapidly approaching dialup speeds. Atrocious.
You guys know that sections of the internet between you and what you're connected to affect the speed of things too right? Unless you're plugged into the same hub in the same room as the thing you're connected to, there are other computers and transmission lines passing the information along and any problems on that path can slow things down.
Turning of the firewalls and proxy speeded it up some. Still have days where it takes almost 2 hours. Hobie-Wan, it downloaded for 3 months between 30-4o minutes evey day and then turned into a toaster. Warframe support sent me the firewalls and proxy idea.
I have a 300 mb/s fibre optic connection. I can download a 25 GB game off of steam in less than 10 minutes flat. Yet when I do ANY patch from the Warframe launcher (note: Warframe is installed directly from their website, not through Steam), I am often downloading at a measely 2 mb/s at most. It can take the same amount of time as a 25 GB game, sometimes longer.
Here I am, steadily downloading between 50-150kb/s when updates come through. Perhaps you should educate yourself on the correct terminology to use for downstream vs link speeds and the difference between a megabit and a megabyte....as well as how networking functions as a whole.
Necroposting but I think I found the solution for people that only uses windows anti-virus, uncheck Bulk download and Agressive download options in the launcher. If the error presents again try checking those options again. At least that fixes the error for me every time it presents, just altern between checking and unchecking those options until its back to your regular download speed.
Select Limit how much bandwidth is used for downloading updates in the background. Then use the slider to set the percentage of available bandwidth used for background downloads. Lower values use less bandwidth but cause updates to be delivered more slowly.

So I am really frustrated that NCSoft is doing NOTHING regarding their launcher issues. I reported them in email few weeks ago that there is an issue with downloading game client! (there are topics about same issues even during f2p launch). The launcher shows download speed do not match resource monitor or any other tool's shown download speed.
For example. Today I reinstalled windows, I had some copy of BnS client which was downloaded about a month ago. So if we count all the updates which came during this period was only about 1 GB size, but my launcher shows that 4GB files are needed to download.... anyway....
The fun begins here. Download speed is not matching at all the actual download speed shown in resource monitor or netlimiter or any other 3rd software which allows to see you internet connection speeds.
NCSoft launcher download speed is very inconsistent and shows very low download speed (jumps from 1mb/s to 20kb/s all the time), meanwhile windows source monitor and Netlimiter shows that launcher actually is using FULL DOWNLOAD SPEED.
I think ncsoft uses non persitent http connections, so after each file is done downloading it back back in speed. Because of this you always see download speed jumping from max to 0. And it continues with each file you download. It extent download time and is super annoying.... AND NCSOFT DO NOTHING ABOUT IT!
When a developer releases a new version of a game, work is done on the backend of GeForce NOW to download that patch, replicate each bit to all of our storage systems, test for the proper security features, and finally copy it back onto all of our data centers worldwide, becoming available for gamers.
Steam is the main gaming client of nearly every PC gamer, yet it still encounters occasional problems despite the frequent updates. One frustrating issue happens when you're trying to update a game: You have adequate disk space, but Steam cancels the download and returns the NOT ENOUGH FREE DISK SPACE error.
This error can result from various hazards on Steam's path to update the game, from a broken download to insufficient writing access. Read on for several solutions you can try in order to resolve this error.
When Steam is downloading files, they're temporarily stored in a folder called downloading. It's possible that, because of various reasons, the downloaded files are corrupt and Steam can't decide where to resume the download. Deleting the downloading folder will make Steam start the download over and do it properly.
It is also a possibility your Steam client's download cache has gotten tangled and is causing problems with the download. The download cache keeps track of all the downloads until they're installed, and if there are corrupt files in the cache, it can keep the downloads from starting. You can fix this by clearing the download cache.
Your Steam library is where the platform stores your games and apps. The files regarding the library and its structure can get corrupted and the corruption can cause Steam to get confused when downloading files. Thankfully, Steam has implemented a feature that lets you repair your Steam libraries.
Steam allocates the entire game's size on the disk for even the smallest updates because it creates a temporary copy of the original game files in the downloading folder, applies the updates, and then deletes the temporary files. This method has received many complaints from users and gamers, but to this day, there is no remedy for it.
Download errors can be a real bummer, especially when you're all excited to play the game as soon as possible. With these solutions, you're likely to fix the not enough free disk space error in Steam. Now that you know how to start your downloads, downloading them faster is another thing you should learn.
If your launcher closes after clicking install, check the task manager, if you see it there and it has network activity that means it is downloading the game in the background. When finished it will pop back into view.
@MitchShallGame @HogwartsLegacy Sucks to see all these issues with steam. I play on Xbox and downloaded it the day before and hopped on an hour after it was released (an hour after because I was asleep not issues).
@ak1r4_n @BynineB Unfortunately, I downloaded the demo from steam but it didn't work for me. The game opens but the character doesn't move. I tried using keyboard and gamepad (xbox) but nothing worked... I wonder what could that be... 2b1af7f3a8
