Patching Speeds, Patch 0.11.4b and Race Season 4

If you're still having trouble downloading 0.11.4, please use this torrent. Our content delivery (patching bandwidth) provider have assured us that they've fixed the problems that were affecting users yesterday and have added more capacity to our patching servers. We're very sorry about the length of time it took to patch for some users, but it's hopefully okay now. As I write this, we're deploying the 0.11.4b patch that includes some important bug fixes. It's not a large patch, so it should download quickly.


Race Season 4 is scheduled to start on August 31, NZ time (next weekend). We initially weren't intending to include anything large like Descent in this season, but at the last minute we decided to whip up a new race type that is described internally as "Descent on a budget". It's not overly flashy, but is pretty fun in testing so far. More details next week :)

Finally, if you're a Brazilian PoE fan, then you should check out www.poebrasil.com - it's an awesome fansite.

Edit: Please note that if you downloaded 0.11.4 from the torrent link above then you need to set the file to not be read-only any more. Instructions are here!

Woo! Nice!
3x Totem crit Ice Spear. ES too low? Meh. Cursed all the time? Whatever.

POE is a constantly evolving game, so expect balance changes, buffs and nerfs STILL!
It took me 29 hours to download the 0.11.4 patch. I trusted the GGG patching servers and I didnt want there to be any errors so I was afraid to use Utorrent... I'm not used to having to "torrent" a patch for a game.. but I guess I should go that rout next time for a large patch. I just cannot deal with another day long download time. I will always love ya'll and appreciate the hard work, and most of all... keep donating to the best game in the world!

Thanks :)

The patching situation was unfortunate. The limit of our abilities was to kick up a big fuss and hope that more capacity was added as quickly as possible (which appears to have been done by now). Before any major patch the future I'll triple check that it has masses of capacity.

It's a good sign that a lot of people wanted to check out the patch, I guess!

A more last minute whipped up version of descent? -_-

Not brimming with enthusiasm and confidence here.
Sadly I cannot participate season 4 races because uni start next week for me. Only got the first two race items in season 3, so that shows how much I did for racing. lol
Still curious about how Charan's custom monster will turn out. :D
