    Client freezes at update

    I went to update the Mac client after being away at uni for a couple of months, but it's been frozen on 9% for a while now. I've read over the forum but haven't found a solution. Can anyone help?

    Define "for a while."

    The update process can take several hours. Today's "hotfix" took about 40 minutes! There are two points in the update process where things seem to stall... one is while it is downloading files, and the other when it is applying "forward iterations" (I.e. the files it downloaded).

    If you missed the Riders of Rohan update, that itself was a biggie... and then there is at least one more after that. The patch process is "not quite" serial, but it is definitely not "cumulative. That is to say, there is no "single patch" to get you from Update 7-Shades of the Past (May 2012), to Update 8-Riders of Rohan (October 2012), to Update 10 - Against the Shadow part II.

    And, re-downloading the client does NOT download the "latest" client. The download still needs to be patched.

    And if you were dowloading/patching last night. Given that the patch servers (as well as game serves) were down from roughly 6am to 10am today... download times might be "S L O W" to non-existent.
