So, my blizzard downloader is ungodly slow. Sometimes it sits at 0 kb/s, or roughly 100 kb/s, despite my internet speed being much higher. Does anyone know any fixes?

Thanks

Mine says 0 the entire time and then it finishes all of a sudden.

My Heroes of the Storm just popped to 2.5mb/s and finished in like 5 seconds. Starcraft 2 is back to 0kb/s

Is it actually taking 0 bandwidth though? Blizz downloads like to lie.

I had this and I spent ages restarting my pc and router and stuff to no avail.

Then i just left it. I think its just and optical illusion.

Yea eventually they finished, some of the speeds changed, some didn't and still downloaded... still took like a good two hours before I messed around with stuff and they went a lot quicker. Seems like Blizzard should get their shap together.

I heard they used to use P2P for updates because they didn't have the server space. Looks like now they just queue lol.

Cba'd to post here before. But sometimes when something takes a long time to download is because Blizz can 'queue' updates. That is if you have HoTs/Sc2/whatever else they update in an order. Solution? Cancel the ones you don't need.

Yea but you can make it download whatever game you want when it's queued by another game.
