    Took me 10 minutes off the disk. I have a fast PC though. Hours seems pretty far-fetched, unless they are including the time it took to download as well.

    Umm...I'm on hour 15 - and at 98% - via Steam - at approx. 165/Kbs.

    Hey, what was I thinking anyway.

    I keep checking my file size via a quick formula and I show that I should end up with 14.8 Gigs - which means I have avoided the partial d/l bug.

    Anyway, about 27 minutes to go - and then there is the patch. Hope that goes in without any issues. Fingers crossed.

    If you bought the digital version of the game you would have to download it. Also there is a small patch to download when you activate the game with Steam.

    I think it took me 25-30 minutes. It's a 15G installation.

    Took me about 30 minutes, due to also having it minimised and not swapping disks. The download patch took about 1-2 minutes. Loading a battle for me takes 30seconds, except for a revolution battle that took a minute.

    The patch is pretty small, I got it in under five minutes.

    whoa. whats ur specs?
    for me, with good specs (2 bg ram, XP, C2D 2.00 ghz, geforce 8600M GT) and loading times for me is about 2-3 minutes. for me, it jumps halfway in like 10 seconds, stalls for like 2 minutes, jumps to 5/6 of the way, stalls for like 3o seconds, then jumps to the end and the battle starts. those are for the big battles in the demo. for the tutorials it like 2 minutes.

    Battles load in under a minute - probably about 30-40 seconds. I play with Steam in offline mode - that supposedly helps the load times.
