The server speed on the Matrix and Slitherine servers is terrible and really they need to spend some money to upgrade them. It should not take forever to download an update or patch for a game. I have a 25mb download speed on my connection so I sure the heck know its not on my end.

out of curiosity, did you go to the download link, or did you use an ingame function to update? The latter seems slower than the first at my end.

I must say I've never had a problem in years, but I always go to the link - never to the in-game update.

As someone who rarely sees download speeds greater than 150kb/s, no matter what, because that's as good as the internet gets here, I say suck it up and go eat a sandwich or something.

I rarely have problems, I wouldn't be surprised if Panzer Corps Allies is to blame. JD did say on twitter that Slitherine smashed their digital sales record today.

You have a point. It might be worth waiting a day or two before buying that one.

We've recently tripled the bandwidth by adding 2 mirror servers but Panzer Corps has hundreds of thousands of players and a 600 MB patch released yesterday so it is a lot of data. I'll check if there is an issue on the update server as it should get the same speeds as the standalone file.

They said the original sold over 200,000 units in their Steam Greenlight description was it?
