    i really hope so , i believe Trion is aware of this , but why no download link no idea usually everyone gives the client of the game days before head start , i will try to copy the beta game files into the main to save up 7gb download , hopefully someone from tech can answer and give more information , Trion <33333333333333333333333333333

    My guess for no download link yet.... There isnt a release client, its still being developed after the beta phase.

    Dont expect to be able to download it until after the B7 event.

    I've mentioned this in an older thread, but I have something I'm going to try when the headstart downloader begins. Basically just planning on moving the data from after the final beta build in to the directory I installed the final clients patcher to, and doing a repair. Some of the data will probably be just fine for the final client, then the download will be smaller.

    Note: This is obviously something you can't do until the end of the final beta and the headstart downloader is beginning. It should skip some downloading for you, worst case it finds nothing usable, and you're no worse off.

    I did a bunch of things and a bunch of stuff; now I'm just a casual player.
