WG should take a look at their download and install process.   It takes too damn long and is a processing hog.   I have a 10mb download connection, slow many standards these days, but not terrible.  The installation process is terrible.  I don't have an antique pos computer either.   

I tried to go back to the PT server and all that does is magnify the problem.   If WG wants people to participate in the testing process, they need to make it easier to do.

Huh? You install WGC which takes a second, then select the game you want and hit install. Game is about 50 GB which usually takes about an hour on my 100Mbps connection. Not sure what else you want them to do, that's in line with pretty much every other game. Fast math, if you have a 10Mbps connection (which I'm assuming is what you mean) it's going to take you about 11 hours to download 50 GB. WG can't speed up your internet connection, the game is a certain size and you can only download it so fast. Now that's a full new install, patches are much smaller so download and install a lot faster. And if you think 50 GB is too big then you haven't seen the size of other games recently.

Unfortunately your internet speed seems to be your biggest issue, and there's not really anything WG can do about that.

I'm going to agree with AJTP89

The state of your internet connection and network is not WG's responsibility.

Just an FYI: the average internet DL speed in the US for 2018 was 96.25mbps. That tells me that most computers have at least a 100mbps card, if not a gigabit card.
