From the PTS 8.1 patch notes:

With the Update 0.8.1, we will officially and permanently discontinue support of compatibility with 32-bit (x86) operating systems. All details on the subject are available in a separate article.

I am running 64 bit OS no issue.  But why did it load a 32-bit client to a machine running 64-bit Windows.

That hasn't been true for years.

I wouldn't think that there were many machines out there still running 32-bit operating systems, at least not those operated by people who want to play video games. I built this computer ten years ago and installed 8 GB RAM and a 64-bit OS in it because those were the standard even back in late 2008.

A 64-bit dedicated game would probably solve a lot of the port lag issues that people have been talking about.

Hopefully they'll use this as a chance to fix the Mac wrapper, which is still 32 bits... so many crashes, and 8.0 has more stuttering/lags than 7.12...

I would think they will lose a fair amount of folks over making it 64bit only..  Not everyone can or want to upgrade their PC's.  or Can't afford to but they can play with what they have.. 

Time will tell..

95 percent of PCs are currently running a 64-bit OS. I'd venture to say that most of those who aren't are not doing much 3-D gaming. Nvidia has already abandoned support for 32-bit operating systems.
