Latest Destiny Patch - 24/09/2015

Thats the total dl'ed todate not the total downloaded for the patch, like the previous post that's why it takes ages to prepare as checking patch elements already got.

U just wish ur internet downloaded 7GB in 90 seconds
Nope mine is 6.984GB and is downloading every last byte of it before my eyes.

I only played 3 days ago and now I've sat through 2 hours (4.42 GB) of downloading with what looks like another 2 hours ahead of me before its finished. I have great internet so its definitely not 90mb for me.

WTF is going on?
That is very strange specially if ur still playing the game regularly. Mine stated 6.xx GB but that was starting point - patch was around 100mbs and took about 90 seconds to actually download.

Sounds like its downloading the whole patch which as you been playing it only 3 days ago is most strange. It would drive me crazy it taking 2/4 hrs!!!!
Perhaps it started there because it had already download most of it while in rest mode?
Possible but I very much doubt the patch would of been nearly 7gb in size. Same occurred on 2nd ps4 when booted up too
Weekly was going away with TTK anyway and Nightfall are changing with Lvl 40 required, so guess with the launch of 2.0 on tuesday these changes are in effect. So with nobody available to get to level 40 (cap is 34 next week) no point of having a nightfall.
Any idea what time the 2.0 patch will be downloaded?
I'll leave console in rest mode.
Players now are required to participate in the boss fights to be eligible for end-of-activity loot

I hope those Strike List AFKers have not read this bit :)
They were overpowered anyway. It's all about Necrochasm instead now by the sounds of it.
AI combatants, not guardians. That means getting captains and the like down quickly in PvE will be much harder.

And reading Crucible Playbook it seems Necrochasm is more viable than it was but is not by any means the new must have weapon.
Here's how the game changes with the release of the The Taken King:

Latest patch seems to have brought some network issues for some people (me included). Players seem more sensitive to anyone the fireteam with a strict NAT and an increase in Beaver errors.

Also getting "removed from the game world" and kicked to orbit frequently.

Bungie have acknowledged the issue and are working on it mate. Reddit post here on the issues:
Stop messing with your network and connection. NAT type issues aren't yours, but Bungies (confirmed). • /r/DestinyTheGame
cheers mate - yes seen that. Not had any issues this AM. I did make sure wifi was in DMZ. Not tried a fireteam today, but definitely looking better, so maybe they have plugged a lead back in :D
