    Though you're able to download it from the launcher. No need for a torrent.

    is this even necessary? and wouldnt the trading of SE intellectual content be considered a violation of the EULA or TOS whatever they call it? im sure its frowned upon either way. i wouldnt risk it

    I don't see what's wrong with the launcher. It downloaded perfectly fine...but, that's just me...

    Well in case you are wondering, mine keeps breaking on update. Which is actually a fairly common issue if you've bothered to read through reddit, the lodestone, or similar forum sites.

    This torrent is intended for those who can't get the launcher to patch, like myself.

    I've tried every single fix that has been listed in those sites as well, so I'm looking for alternative methods after 20+ failures.

    I downloaded from the beginning (7g?) and then today (a little over a gig) at 1.79MBS from the client.

    Updated original post for reasoning and sources.

    No this isn't illegal, no this doesn't infringe upon SE's rights.

    They edited the post and mentioned the reason why after we asked why.
    If they mentioned it in the post beforehand we wouldn't be asking why. Sense it seemed majority of the people here had working launchers.

    Also, just because you didn't know the explicit details behind the alternate download doesn't mean you have to jump to the conclusion that what a long-term member of the community is being shady and sketchy. I believe the benefit of the doubt might be in order for your fellow Realmers. However, that's totally up to you. If you want to assume everyone is an evil jerk out to get you to commit felonious acts, then.... so be it.

    Hey thx a lot for your help m8, one noob Question, If i have downloaded the version - before the 1 gig patch. using my utorrent...when i use your new link....and run it..it will pick up my old files and just check and then download only whats missing i guess? ( i assume ofc your link places the files in the same place my old torrent used...

    There is a torrent of the unpatched game on reddit with 3x more seeders
    Why not just release a torrent of the patch?
    It Would save some of us from re-downloading the entire game. (What I am currently doing.)

    50kbs dl speed....100 seeders, does everyone have upload limits or what?

    I think you're saying is that you used the torrent for the pre-early access patch and want to now use this new one and hope this will just add whats missing, then no it won't because they're different torrents. Changing the root folder for this torrent might work but I doubt it. You could just find the additional files in the Game folder with the updated boot files and download those alone. It should work if you can find all the necessary files. A little stressful but good alternative if you have a data limit or just can't wait to download it all over again.

    Hope this helps, if you haven't downloaded it all over again.

    Alright, got this all up, still can't get past the next update download, which is only like 1 GB, this is freaking ridiculous. Anyone have the new update available for download?
