Patch 1.11 Coming down in chunks

Here is the blue response on the Mac tech forum

You are receiving pieces of the upcoming 1.11 patch. It will accumulate and not activate in any way until the actual patch release day, which is some time from now.

You have the option to disable background downloading by visiting the preferences menu of the background downloader app while it is running, and turning off the “Enable Background Downloading” checkbox.

I’d link it but I can never get blizzard forum links to work.

    Note that this background downloading is causing latency issues for some players (giving some US players a taste of Australian pings). If your ping bar has gone red recently (and it isn’t normally red) you should try disabling the background downloader.

    Beat me to posting! =P

    Yeah, Blizzard Background Downloader. Ever wonder why you’re latency sucks? That’s because you’re downloading a 94Mb patch in the background.

    Cheers for the warning Blizzard.

    This was weird wild stuff…I asked the other guild members last night if anyone else was getting the dlaod and I was the only one at that time…Thanks for the info!

    I’m seeing this too. A little annoying since you have to go looking for an explanation as to why I’m downloading over 100 megs everytime I log on…

    There is no way to tell what Blizzard is doing. I don’t swallow “receiving pieces of the upcoming 1.11 patch”, since it is far from done. My guess is that they using their users computers to spread old existing patches to new users, coming back players and the such.

    Cheap bastards!
