Patch this bitch!

When I got my game it was the old 4 cd version with 1.0 on it so whenever I had to do a re-install it took about 5 hours to download the patch gamut and get it up to speed. Yes I deleted it often when I wanted my life back for a few days. Then one day I found this DVD (pictured right) in a copy of Details magazine and things got a whole lot nicer. The DVD has version 1.05 on it so I get to skip a few patch levels but until recently I still had to run through about 10 patches to get current. I’m glad to announce that since 1.10 they have a single roll-up patch that gets an install from 1.05 to 1.10 in one 380Meg patch. There is one minor maintenance patch after that but it’s a real quick one. So thanks Blizzard for making it much easier for people to get up to speed without hours of patching and hair pulling.

    I really wish they’d make a DVD available every couple patches with the current version of the game, complete to patch. Even if it required a login of your user account to do it, I would take it.
