New USA customer here, I wouldnt worry too much about the torrent site traffic, the fact that they come to your website so often would mean that its not available as a torrent.
As for DL speed, it was fast 600k or so, but unfortunately I ordered the game at the end of the day (here at work, yes shame on me
) as I have dial up at home, wonder how many years that would take lol. Anyways I wasnt able to get it to DvD before I left. Then the next day, 3.7GB to DvD, DvD to home comp, Unzip 3.7GB file, then install, WHEW, but it was worth it for sure.
Im wishing the best for you guys, I will say, THANK YOU for not making it rough on paying customers, I really really do appreciate it, you pay good money only to jump through hoops with other products, so I sincerely hope it doesnt affect your bottom line, the argument I always make when discussing this sort of thing, is that the pirates would not have purchased the game anyways, so its hard to say how many paying customers you would lose, but I would guess it would be small.
Im not far into the game yet, but loving it so far, good luck to you
