for those not in the loop the PTU is the test bed for patches. Once they iron out the wrinkles they will stop the PTU and push it to the live servers. So unless you want to download the huge patch twice just wait for the PTU to end and the patch to go live. smile

Yeah it is a 33GB patch, I've set my PC to update to it and it will take around 3 hours to do so, so I will see it in the morning.

I thought the PTU had been extended to everyone now? I know I've been in the PTU from the start, so not sure on how it is rolled out to everyone.

Being on satellite broadband with a 150GB/mo cap, unless there's a very compelling reason to load up the PTU (or it's a few days before allotment reset and I've got that much left in the account), I just wait for the release

So far the social module has been more of a death by buggy smile

My first trip into Arc Corp lasted all of 10 seconds before I had an enforced trip to the recovery room in the Medical Bay
