Any reason WOWS updates have to be always of 1 Gig of downloads?

Hi,

 

Like most, I play more games than just WoWS and in fact WoWS is far down the pecking order in terms of games I would play but I still like having it for a few battles here and there so would feel it a pity to have to uninstall it on these grounds. Problem is, unlike any other game I play, whenever there's a minor WoWS update it's generally at least 1 gig to 1.5+ gigs of download and while that's ok now and then for the odd major patch etc, it seems way too big for just a change of port for an event that doesn't seem to feature anything else to justify the size of the download. Does a new port really take up that much space? WoT features new garages for their events and they're just small and fast downloads.

 

When I decide I want to do a bit of gaming after work etc, I just want to power on the pc and pretty much get straight into it, not have to hang about waiting for some bafflingly large download before I do that and when I'm finished gaming, same thing, I just want to power off an leave, not hang about for some download first. 

 

What this means is I have switched the automatic update off for WoWS and that's a shame because it just means I will play it even less than I already do and edges it a bit closer to uninstall territory. I would prefer to keep the game though because I like it on some level just for a bit of Co-op and Ops fun, really tasty graphics and ships are magnificent but ya, those update sizes! Can devs please trim them down to just the essentials? Do these temp ports etc really HAVE to be that size of a download?

I mean...I understand that some places have crappy internet but. If one GB downloads are causing you problems, I can't even imagine what you went through when you were downloading the game.
