The .exe mirrors provided are just in case you can't download by conventional p2p methods (college campus internet for example will usually patch more slowly through a launcher).
yeah i know that the server's hold up is due to the massive players loggin in... but you see, the only reason players are logging in at the same time is becouse they are ALSO downloading everything at the same time, therefore, logging in.
IF they'd give us the option to download the patch elsewhere, i THINK this issue would be solved PLUS we could download it so much faster (in my case i have megaupload acc. so i'd download it at 2mb/sec)
IDK... i think it would be good to at least have this option you know..
