How did they make a launcher so bad?

I don't think I've ever experienced a launcher quite as bad as this one. Not only do I need to turn off my firewall completely to download 2 gigs in under a day (even though that normally takes about 5 minutes tops from any other source), it also takes several hours installing it? If they are aiming for negative nostalgia they sure are succeeding. Takes about as long installing a 2 gigabyte update as it took installing vanilla WoW back in 2004. And just for the sake of shitty design they couldn't include a way to actually see what it was doing so I have a chance of troubleshooting WHY the computing speeds of this launcher is slower than the Bombe machine.

 

So with that rant out of the way, anything I can do to not have to have my PC running throughout the night after every update?

so your firewall causes problems and you blame the WGC? sounds logical...
