So I am an expat here from the US living here in China and I love this game. However, Ive been having some major issues with the updates and need some advice. Before it took me a month just do download the game and get it started. I found the loophole and found that if you use a VPN and get Arkslayer's Tweaker, they can hook you up with the updates fast! Takes an hour. Then you have the launcher. It takes about 3 days after updating to check all the files and this is with/without VPN. The game plays fine, in that its not region locked and I dont need a VPN. No lag, nothing. Its just getting into the game. Is there a way to speed this whole system check BS? Its frusterating loosing 3 days of play from my mission pass and even other passes. That's minimum I'm on day 4 of these constant updates because I had to sleep and had to leave my computer a few time so that I couldn't stop and restart the update process every-time it freezes or decided to give me a No.103.
Any suggestions or is this inevitable because the microsoft store is crap?
