I'm on a dialup internet connection, currently running at 21600, and I just logged on to download the GW Factions update. I got the 11mb header file (or whatever you call it) first, then when I tried to go back to my Ranger (in the PVP arenas, it told me it had 1,300 files to get, and 2.6mb was still 0%.
So I'm curious as to how big the file actually is, so I can decide if I will leave it on downloading all night.

I haven't paid close attention but I believe some where around 35ish MBs over all the various areas.

There is alot to download, once you hit about 1100 files remaining they get alot smaller...

Its not that bad, I run dialup too. I saw the 1300 odd files, and decided to go grocery shopping. I came back roughly 45-60 minutes later and I was done.

yeah i was pretty inconvinced by the size of the whole update as well. took my cable modem like 73 seconds to download it all. i didn't know what i was going to do for a good 70 seconds there...
