Eh...isn't the game size too big?

I have been playing for some time, and i noticed this game has often updates of 2gb+, to the point my game folder size has duplicated over time.

Right now it is about 56 GB, about the size of GTA V.

What exactly justifies this game to have a size that big?

The average AAA game size is about 40 GB.

Did you enable replays in the past? You might have a growing archive you've forgotten about taking up hard drive space.

Lot of content in game, including the mechanics, graphics, various weapons systems, game modes, lots of ships... all the fun things we enjoy about WOWs it all adds up into the game size. It's the price we pay for increasing better games that continue to amaze us.

Incorrect. AAA titles are running almost 50GB on average these days, and quite a few run 70GB and over. Also, you seem to be not realizing that this game continually adds content, and the vast majority of it never leaves, ergo, the game can ONLY grow larger.

Notice how Russian cruisers are as big as most other nations' battleships because of superior Russian engineering?

Superior Russian coding works much the same way.

You would need to store up a few thousand till it made a meaningful difference when compared to the game install.  I have 838 files and still have not surpassed 2 gigs in size.

My game size right now is 33 gigs with 1.7 gigs being replays so it should be closer to 32 gigs.  It is about 20 gigs to big imho.
