    It does actually "optimize".

    Self-quote from the first page:



    Quite happy about them doing this, it'll only have to take this long one and the times they decide to do this again should be much much faster.
    So if it saves us little to no space but instead just reduces the file count in the folder how is that helpful really? I would rather use the resources to move them into that shitty mpq file by actually moving things about on my hard drive at a decent speed.

    It saves in performance, the game does not have to open xx MPQs and patch each of the base-MPQs with each patch-MPQ each time it starts up.

    This one is far from proper.

    EDIT: It's not even officially supported yet, though they are taking bug reports for it.

    They already shut down the PTR. They said its going to be in tech support when patching is done. Besides its a compiled 64 bit binary file. Its good enough and the LAA will work better.

    I'll use it when I actually get performance gains from it, which was not the case when I tried last week.

    Holy shit, why is this patch 1.3gb?
    I didn't think anything that big was in it.

    Edited:

    Welp, probably won't be raiding tonight.

    Most of our group doesn't even show up until 30 minutes until after we're supposed to start, and they're never prepared for patches. The raid night would be over by the time the pricks in my guild finish optimizing and downloading.

    I'm making my first foray into PvP servers with my female goblin priest on Darkspear. Wish me luck.

    The only difference from PVE to PVP servers is when leveling, and for some reason you only ever see the enemy faction in vastly overleveled zones.

    That fucking 60 gnome rogue in Ashenvale...

    I made the mistake of making my very first character on a PvP server. Bad enough to make someone quit on the spot.

    Pretty much happens to everyone the first time. That's why I switched to PvE, but you still get the assholes who gank you after you defend yourself from a horde/alliance guard and get PvP flagged.

    Nothing wrong with hunters they are perfect.
    Ugh, a hunters pet attack does 800 already, when he is around level 35, that is like 1/3 of my health. Then plus that comes a explosive shot and I'm dead, instakilled.

    Whoop da fucking doo they got buffed:

    Hunters

    *Aspect of the Hawk now grants roughly 35% more attack power.
    *Deterrence now also reduces damage taken by 30% while active.
    *Black Arrow now ticks every 2 seconds for 20 seconds, as opposed to every 3 seconds for 15 seconds. The total damage dealt by the ability is unchanged.

    Well that was probably the greatest time of my Pallys life. Short lived bug it was, but what a blast.
