Hows about instead of releasing a patch every damn godforsaken day of the week you release ONE patch on a set day of the week.



Then you will complain because the patch its botched and they dont fix it (like what happens with dust514).
Or, you will complain because it takes long time for them to release a patch.



On the other hand i must concurr with you though, its a pain in the ass how this game updates when you're not using the launcher, it doesnt allow to update 2 different installations at the same time, and there are so many steps and things it must do just to get a 1,6MB patched that it can be quite frustrating.

Also the launcher has the option of exporting the patch to use on another installation, I've tried to use this on big patches but it doesnt work, when on the second installation launcher i import the patch it does nothing, it keeps downloading what it was, and that's a pain in the crak, on other words, this quite much useful feature doesn't work.

I must admint however, that this is the only issue I've ever had with the launcher in question here, no weird disconnects on black screens or anything, the only reason I don't use it is because the launcher makes the task on loging in much slower: the launcher must load up, i must type my **** in, then it must launch the game, when on the other hand, i just launch the game, type my **** in, and here I go baby !

Current system:
Click to open launcher
Select account (usually remembered by launcher)
Enter password for account (should be remembered)
Click log-in to launch option to play EVE
Click play to launch client and get character selection screen
Select character
(Usually there is a mini patch and some of the above will be delayed or repeated)
So it's less cynical design and more you being inefficient.

- Click launcher
- Optional: select account
- Type password (it's good practice not to save it anywhere) and press enter
- Select character.

Then again, they have already solved that problem quite nicely…

The Launcher takes no effort. I Launch multiple accounts on multiple screens using them...simples.

Unless your a mac user then I can understand your pain...theres no iLauncher branded launcher
