I heard DDO is free now, so I reinstalled Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (using the my retail copy of the game; CDs), only to find out they renamed it to some new gay name "Jebberon" or something stupid like that (I know it isn't actually "Jebberon", but the actual new name is so stupid, that I'm not even going to bother taking two seconds out to see what it is). Well, so it began updating, the first update went by relatively fast. Then it restarted the launcher with the new "Jebberon" theme, and it is now REALLY REALLY REALLY slow. It's been like an hour and a half and it's still not even 1% done. It's going at a maximum speed of like 80 kbps (kilobytes per second), which is ridiculous, since I have Charter (1 MB per second). It seems to be going nowhere fast, just look at this screenshot.



Depending on how long you've been away, it should take a long time to update.

I would start it and then go to bed.. thats what I did.

So... in the end... did you end up playing DDO again? Just wondering, maybe you can answer my question... If I start to pay for my old DDO account, will I get my old "now currently locked" characters back? Or are they gone for ever? And, how much is it to re-activate my old account?
