    Just be careful to not let LotRO's client P2P patching system keep running on your computer, Captain2's download/upload allowance was eaten up with dozens of gigabytes of data and he got charged overage fees because of it.

    Internet usage with LOTRO



    and without.

    Sadly I didn't find a way to keep LOTRO, I just saw those numbers and killed it.

    I look at your January data and I barely see any upload transfer. How is it that LOTRO, I presume, uploaded so much junk? wow.

    It uses a P2P/torrent distribution for patches, many mmos do that now (including WoW).

    Oh, so you're participating to patch distribution? How ingeniously inconsiderate. I don't think WoW does it outside of when you're patching yourself.

    To be honest, I probably wouldn't play it if it wasn't for the internet at Uni - so much faster than at home, and I don't really have to worry about down/uploading numbers.

    Darth Caesar - not sure I play enough to join a kinship yet, but if I really take on to the game I might be interested.

    Jos Ballenbak - Hopefully there'll be something more within the upcoming days. I'm all situated back at Uni now, so hopefully once I get my daily rhythm for this semester figured out I can get a post up.
