Launcher incredibly slow.

Postby uberdoobz » Wed Apr 10, 2019 7:14 pm

I've noticed for some time now that the launcher is incredibly slow.

Surely it should only take a few seconds to check to see if there are updates to be downloaded. But I regularly find myself waiting sometimes upwards of 10 minutes to be told that there isn't an update and I can play.

I'm not sure if this is just me experiencing this or if its a bigger problem. Don't get me wrong, I get that it's best to use the launcher to check for updates, but 10 minutes to find out theres no update before being able to play? Seriously?

This isn't 1995. A 250 megabit connection should take literally seconds to say theres no update, go ahead and play. Whats going on?

Yup fully up to date. I even downloaded the separate launcher to make sure it's not that. Still takes ages to say I can play.

Follow those steps

1. Move the wow client to the root of your driver (Ex.: c:\wow-mania)
2. Make sure that the file realmlist.wtf is NOT read-only
3. Make sure the client folder is not read-only either
4. Add the client folder to the list of exceptions of your anti-virus
5. Start Launcher as Admin

I did all of these a couple of days ago and I still have a very slow launcher.

When you say "slow" is the Launcher downloading patchs or takes too much time?
