    I'm kinda thinking that day it does eventually come out and if they do release it all in one big chunk, Live will go down or at least be very slow. I would guess that in order to add new maps and such it will end up being a pretty big DL, like somewhere around 50 to 75 megs, which means with everyone and their cousin trying to DL it the servers are going to be stressed big time. Hard to say though since you'd think they've planned for it, but with all the troubles with the downloads so far it wouldn't surprise me.

    Travis,

    Your probably right. No biggie though. I'll just set it to download and watch TV or do something else until it finishes. I'm interested to see what they've done but I'm not excited. I can wait.

    This package will include the 2 Mechs (Raven and Corvus), 2 maps (Hell's Kitchen and Stone Cold) and some Live updates.

    Personally, I'm more interested in the Live updates. If they've made the interface for Live better and fixes the dropping issues, It'll keep me happy enough until then new game modes are released.

    Graeme,

    I believe the Capture-The-Flag game mode is supposed to be in there as well. They should really develop one Live interface for all the games that is definitive. Let the individual developers make cosmetic changes but nothing else. It's tough to see interfaces of differing quality, options, and features.

    If they fix the live interface as some have said that would be the best update in my book. Being able to go back to the lobby would be f'n sweet.

    I'm with Paul, at this point I'll believe it when it is downloading to my HD [​IMG]

    CTF would be nice in the next patch with those lil mechs too.

    Wasn't one of the maps supposed to be specifically made for CTF? Oh, well. CTF was really the biggest reason I was looking forward to the patch. Hopefully, they'll release it soon.
