    Greeted with a 90 minute queue to login when I launched Battle.net tonight.

    I knew I should have left that Windows update to sweat, instead I let her reboot and now the planned game tonight will be somewhat of a wait.....

    Go 'offline', run your game you want and log into the game with your blizzard account if it asks. This got our group around the queue to play overwatch.

    It's down to 22 minutes, I've managed to pass the time with pizza subs and RedBull™

    Do I risk it?

    Finally got logged in, and found another chunky update for Call of Duty! Only 20GB this time though :eyebrow: :wallbash:

    Slander. I demand satisfaction! (though not on Overwatch because I couldn't hit the broad-side of a Roadhog with a banjo based on last night!)

    I think it was done so people were queued for the BOCW Beta update, got that downloaded and it goes live today methinks.

    Oof. What's the total install size? Are they doing selective installs with this one do you know or is that the next one?
    Yea I assume so. Probably why the offline thing worked.
    Now you know why I was playing Torb :D

    I have no idea mate on the total size. I am not sure either if this was a selective install. I simply let it download. You kind of get used to huge downloads with COD and let it do its own thing :lol:
