    Day 1 Patch

    Does anyone know much details about what will be in the day one patch that Bashiok mentioned?

    Re: Day 1 Patch

    It appears the build of the client that I pre-loaded yesterday is 8370, and the current beta build is 9327. The preloaded version seems awfully out of date, assuming they use the same numbering system for both branches. Other than that, it's probably going to have a few tweaks here and there, but nothing too major, as they said.

    Re: Day 1 Patch

    considering there has been 2 beta patches after I downloaded the installer, I'm pretty sure there will be one.

    Re: Day 1 Patch

    Yea, but it was expected. Weren't they still working on some tweaks even after they allowed people to download installers? Of course it will have to be brought up to date, if nothing else. I assume it will be the same for DVDs.

    EDIT: Brokenstorm beat me ;)

    Bashiok also said (can't find the post, sorry), that we'll be able to start the download half an hour before the servers open. It's not much, but it's something.

    Like sdemon said, it will probably be an update with the newest changes.

    it will be fine, blizzard use peer to peer system(torrents) more people/more download speed but also more upload speed :)

    Unfortunately most ISPs are *long beep*, and they provide much less bandwidth for upload than download for their customers. Still, the peer to peer system will definitely help.

    Re: Day 1 Patch

    Any guesses as to how big the patch will be? And how big the average Diablo 3 patch will be going forward?

    Re: Day 1 Patch

    Blizzard also host the downloads on a top tier international cdn. I always turn p2p off on their downloaders. It usually goes faster with p2p off for me because the downloader is not destroying my connection by overloading my upload that way.

    No idea on patch size but I would guess closer to SC2 patch sizes than major WoW patch sizes.

    Gonna be a massive patch :p Hope half an hour is enough!

    But that was apparent when they released the preorder client three beta versions ago ;)

    Re: Day 1 Patch

    yeah that was kinda weird that they released the pre-order so early... like .. why? They could have released it at the end of the beta and still had 2 weeks for people to download? Its like they use it as an estimation tool to predict revenue or something?

    No, they had to manufacture disks... and the disk version and the d/l version should be the same, otherwise you need separate patch versions for each and it quickly gets complicated.

    Yeah, but the last two patches were just a few MBs IIRC.
