    SECRET: Set your download server to something else. Preferably another country like Greenland (what I'm using) I'm sure any other country will beat out the US servers right now though. I'm dling at about 1000kbs instead of 50-400 which is what I was getting on the Chicago server.

    How to: go into your friends list window. Click the arrow beside your name. Click change profile name. Download tab and then switch server.

    Also, if you don't mind, find your own country. GREENLAND IS MINE!

    Right now any europen server should be good for people in the US. The trick is to find servers were it is after midnight were it is located. Heck 2-3AM seem to be the sweet spot since it is before people start waking up and when most are sound out.

    This is based on hard hit servers for anything.

    selecting Germany really sped things up for me. Thailand, not so much

    Germany has been my choice as well the past few times I've had to use this trick.
