I spent all day yesterday installing was about maybe 25 gigs +.
Also when you are downloading cataclysm make sure to start the game as the speeds with the regular downloader sucks for some reason. You can immediate close it after.
Anyway, after going through all that and doing all this research on which server to join, I found myself forced to join a low pop freebie server. I was pretty mad, but then I thought about it and realized that I should have known. Wish they had mentioned it in the press release though. Oh well, uninstall time.
Well there's 3 hours of my life I won't get back. I guess I should consider myself lucky it was only that.
