Of course, this patch also had a ton of bug fixes and game balancing tweaks which are very much needed by the game.

Dropzone Patching Is Very Slow

The problem with this patch is not the patch itself but the patching process. For some reason, Blacklight: Retribution's game launcher patches the game at an extremely slow speed. It took my game launcher 5 hours to patch the game halfway and it finished the darn thing after another 5 hours.

That's 10 hours of patching. WTF!

I know that not everyone has this problem but I'm very sure that I'm not the only one who experienced this extremely slow patching. Other players have been complaining about it as well in the official Blacklight: Retribution's Official Forum.

Below is a YouTube video that talks about Blacklight: Retribution's extremely slow patching.

Anyway, my installed copy of Blacklight: Retribution is already patched. It took the game launcher 10 hours (more or less) to patch it and, after playing in the new map for the first time, I can say that the wait wasn't very disappointing.

Blacklight: Retribution is a free-to-play online multiplayer first-person-shooting game developed by Zombie Studios and published by Perfect World Entertainment.
