Why are the updates so blooming big, and take ages to download?

I have 100Mbs fibre broadband and the update of 2.3Gb took almost 20mins.

Surely the whole software hasn't been updated, can this not be completed in a modular fashion?

OMG! 20 Minutes? There is no way one can do something else during that time!

 

And yes, with a 50+ GB client, a 2.3 GB update is only a small part.

at least 6 ships were added during the update.

I don't want those "ships", can I deselect that part of the update please? :Smile_Default:

You cannot select the ships you can meet in battle...

BUT I WANT! I want to exclusively meet historical ships in battle. But I make a concession: WG may replace the paperbias with rubber ducky models in my client - that would be as historically accurate as the sikrit projekts, after all. :Smile_trollface:

 

If subs (or what WG calls subs) get a separate game mode, why not also making a historical mode? Pretty easy to do.

Two things -

 

1. In the Wargaming Centre, under Updates you can choose to block or just throttle Uploads, that helps as uploading at 100% massively hurts Downloading speeds.

 

2. My downloads were being throttled by a recent change to my Anti-Virus which was trying to scan the update as it D/L'd (always 'On' scan) so I gave the "World of Warships" folder an exemption and it's now fast again.

When I update other games WoWs seems so small. 

 

Just see the Call of duty warzone, the updates are over 10, 15GB, that is ridiculous!

This is my "res_packages"-folderof world of warships:

As you see there are 208 files with 49 gigabytes of data --> therefor these files are pretty big and contain (in an compressed way) the game data.

 

After the download the launcher.exe has to open (unzip) these revelant packages one-by-one , add/modify/remove information within these package and then has to zip it again into such an big package file.

 

This is why the updates takes so long.

Sadly subs will be only for a short time, in their separate mode.......  I wish for WG maintain them for a LOT longer there.......
