    Default 8.32 GB patch!

    I guess this more of a rant, but I purchased Rift from steam and downloaded it last night. I woke up ready to play only to find out a 8.32GB patch needed to be downloaded. I assumed a patch or two was needed, but 8.32 GB and the game has just launched! what gives!

    I'm now 5 hours away from patch completion, this game better be amazing.

    What you downloaded from steam was the client i.e. the tool that downloads, patches and launches the game.

    The client is a few hundred megabytes.

    You downloaded the patcher, the 8GB is the actual game.

    What game besides Maplestory has a ~150MB client.

    I downloaded the game from Steam (so I thought) it was around 8GB too and took at least 6 hours to download at around 350 KB/s. I feel like I'm downloaded it twice, I hope I haven't f'd anything up.

    Either way, thanks for the responses, only 4+ to go.
