    Extremely Slow Download Speeds

    I am having problems with downloading through the launcher. It seems to use about 1\10th of my actual bandwith to download and this leaves for a very long download and patch times. 90 minutes to do a 400mb patch when it should only take me around 10 minutes.

    What can i do to speed this up? is the game uploading and using all my packet cycles to upload? how can i turn off peer to peer if thats the case?

    I know others have the same issue but no fixes have been posted

    Are you downloading the entire game or just the most recent patch?

    That's strange... I don't know how to fix that, but you should definitely consider setting it to install patches automatically so you don't have to wait around for it to do it.

    I had the same issue. I am capable of downloading 4mb/sec, but smite just downloads less than 200kb/sec. How I fixed it was just run the launcher as admin. Then smite is finally downloading patches at my max speed! Hope this helps some ppl having the same issue.

    just because you're capable of d/ling at high speeds doesn't mean you'll get them, ESPECIALLY during busy times (like right after the patch)

    Wait a little bit and try downloading again, or just leave it running. The servers are under stress right now, so they're just not available to give you a decent connection.

    Thanks JantheMan, on fiber internet i'd let it run overnight and it had barely gone 20% across the bar. I've now run as Administrator and its done 10% in a few minutes already.

    If the Smite team is reading this I'm running Windows 8.1 64bit, default installation. Please make the launcher out of the box run with elevated permissions on this platform so others don't waste their time as well.

    I had the same problem with slow speed. Windows 7, installing full game.

    Basically my solution was to delete the game and then reinstall it, but when the launcher starts for the first time, you should answer NO to suggestion to run in the background. If chosen to run in background, the timer was more than 6 hours, without background - 30 min

    I have 120mbps internet which translates to roughly 16MB/s But I am trying to do a fresh install of the game and even running as admin, i am downloading at 2-2.5 MB/s this is ridiculously slow. I have network monitors so i can see exactly what is doing what in my network and the reason I know exactly what my download speed is. this needs to be fixed.
