I am still waiting for them to let us download the updates without paying for it first from the start?
Just like they done with Final fantasy 14 and WOW also done that too and theres alot of others games are doing that too.
I have to pay to download updates and that takes hours....then play???

I dont see your problem. At all. You have to pay for the game regardless. And i definately dont see what diffirence it makes now that you already have done so.

But just to amuse you, you can update your game without even logging in, or making/registering an account, simply by removing one .DAT file, and selecting the File Check option. This will A: replace the file you removed, and B: start downloading the entire list of updates.

Still, if out of the 30 free days, you have to spend at the very most between 2 and 4 hours downloading files, what kind of a loss would that be? They implemented a lot of updates in the digital downloads. Just the latest ones from the last couple of months are missing. I did the same recently when i purchased a second account. It was absolutely painless.

Or are you by chance installing the game from CD's from 2003? In that case, why are you installing from such an old build in the first place?

well that was suggestion but anyways I think then they should keep it like that with Final fantasy 14 don't you think?
Well most game are like that Game >> downloading update >> patching >> Play Online
Games that are like that are wow,DC Universe Online,Dragonica,Dynasty Warriors Online,Final fantasy 14,Eden Eternal,EverQuest II Extended,Jade Dynasty,Runes of Magic,Vindictus EU theres so many other ones.

To me 2-4 hours downloading updates its not fair I rather spend that in game time, but then again it is more then that since they have put a limit on downloading files from there servers it runs at 56kb.
