When preparing the next patch, we found that the Object.pak file was about to exceed the 2GB size limit on a tool we use.
With all the new content coming in future patches, we needed a better way to package it all.
To prevent this issue happening again we moved files from the Object.pak file to their own unique PAK file. This means users will see a big patch this week because we have to patch the Object.pak file and patch/add the new PAK files. As a result, the next patch will be approximately 1.3GB.
We are sorry for the trouble of the increased patch size this week; However, this should be a one-time thing.
For the inconvenience, on patch day: We will be issuing all players that have logged in after August 19th, 2013 with one (1) day of Premium Time.
UPDATE 18-NOV-2013: The cut-off for this free premium time bonus is November 18th, 2013 at 7PM (Pacific Standard Time). Only players who have logged in to the game client between August 19th, 2013 and 7PM tonight will receive the free day of Premium Time.
