I periodically check in with games I’ve played to see how they are doing.

Tera New Launcher

So Tera got a new launcher and has a new update. Yet another new class for Elin, of course. One track mind those folks, don’t we think? Anyway.

The problem is that the update is downloading so slowly that it will take over 7 hours to get it, and I have a very fast internet connection.

And yet the download speed for Tera is 1-2 MBytes / sec, which if you convert to bits / sec is about 10-20 Mbps. What a joke. Looks like they don’t really want me to play.
