#1409: Okay, this is serious BS, Blizzard.

Why did I have to buy the freaking game? Okay, no, that kind of makes sense when it's several gigabytes, I suppose, but then why did I have to install the freaking game when you were just going to install

THREE FREAKING GIGABYTES of patches?

I'm not kidding, nor am I exaggerating. The WoW server I'm on went down at 5 AM; having received a couple of invites to join guilds--and not being able to since I'm on a trial account--I thought I'd go ahead and step up for a paid account, since I'm just going to go ahead and do that anyway.

That was at 5 AM.

Now it's 2:45 PM and the installation is still not done because it had to spend SIX GOD DAMNED HOURS downloading patches.

I would have gladly just paid $30 for a key and downloaded it directly. It would have saved both of us a lot of trouble--you wouldn't have had to do anything but provide me with a product key, and I wouldn't have bothered installing the old version.

Ten hours to install a game? Bullshit. Fucking bullshit.

...but my Christmas shopping is finished! And not a moment too soon, because it's been snowing all day and we're due to get real shitweather tonight and into tomorrow. *sigh*

When I saw that WoW had to DL all that crap, I watched the car shows I'd taped Sunday, then hit the hay and slept for a couple hours. Upon waking, I decided we might as well go do the shopping and errands, and off we went; to the mall, to Baker's Square, to the grocery store for a few items we missed the other day, and then home.

WoW finished the big patch upgrade install, and now it still installing patches! WTF!!! WTFF!!!
