Wow, this is one heck of an update, I've been surfing for a while now, and I just remembered I had POL open...It's still mid-update...

Well, at least I know they made a decent number of changes to look forward too.
Dont panic, no point complaining...

It is like this every big update.... Everyone gets on at once and then has tons of trouble wondering what the [email protected]#$%^ is wrong.

Well, here it is... Think of the average amount of sending/recieving that the however many FFXI players on all the servers use.... Then make them all quit playing for a while, put in a sizable update, and have them all jump on close to the same time using a much greater bandwidth and more of FFXI's resources.

What you have is a major traffic jam that is not likely to clear up, if any of you live in southern Cali, you should understand me perfectly ha ha ha.

I suggest that you put on a good movie, wait til a few hours at least, maybe til tomorrow and find another form of entertainment for the night/day. Its a pain and I hate it too, but thats life ; ;.

On second thought though, the download time for playstation users is quite outrageous, so ps2 users, feel free to complain, I feel for you >.<.
wtf

I was downloading, and had literaly 30 seconds left, and I got the POL-1160 error, I reconnected, and now it is saying I have 5 hours left? Is this normal? Are all of the updates like this? Just wondering if I should cancel before my free 30 days is up.
pissed

Maybe I'm one of the unlucky ones... I've been updating for almost an hour and was mentally preparing myself for the 5 hour wait! And a "Version Update Communication Error" just popped up saying: "Network is busy there are connection problems..." Is anyone else experiencing these problems. I have plants to harvest in my Mog House!!!

Why did they say about 34 min for DSL (1Mbps) XBox users? I've been updating since 3:30 est. and I have "Files remaining: 2672/3012" time remaining fluctuates between 04:50:XX and 04:55:XX!!!! Seems I'll have to wait until tomorrow!! BTW my internet connection is not lagging as I'm on the same network now.

Assuming they had enough bandwidth to provide to everyone. ~5 Hour wait for 8Mbps :(

When will corporate organisations realise the benefit of distributed file sharing aka torrents. (Admittedly I have no idea how they would implement it for FF updates lol)

Same here... I've been updating since 3:30 est. and I have "Files remaining: 2672/3012" time remaining fluctuates between 04:50:XX and 04:55:XX!!!! Seems I'll have to wait until tomorrow!! I thought it was something I did. But I kinda figured this would happen with everybody in the world downloading from their servers at once.
