Hello all, it's time for another yapping message from the admin.
A new patch will be arriving this upcoming Wednesday. Patch 2.0.1 will bring about more than 600mb of download for those who haven't used the Background Downloader to prepare for it. Our own tests with the background downloader proved successful, but we're quite convinced that there will be significant demand for the largest World of Warcraft patch to date, and that it will put a severe strain on our mirror, which, as you already know, has a transfer limit.
To that end, we have been evaluating several means to offload strain. Currently, the most visible one is the addition of a mirror called Coral Content Distribution Network
. For more information on Coral CDN, see their homepage
. Suffice to say, we'd like you to evaluate how the links to the Coral CDN are working out. You can find those links on the most recent Closed Beta patch, and our own testing showed them with speeds exceeding 500k/s.
