The patch notes only link to the WoW Bug Reports forum, which has no official information on the patch. And, as others have already noted, three bug fixes hardly seem to require a 6 mb patch. There is obviously more to the patch, but no information has been provided as of yet.I am starting to feel that Blizzard is going downhill in production control of these updates. 3.0.8 was a disaster in managing and testing content before being placed in to production, and today is an equivalent failure in communications of modifications. It is hard to not believe that they are slipping through a whole bunch of changes that they don't want to admit they had to fix. Is this a do more with less result of economization? I suspect we are all spending hours of game time working around problems which are the result of Activision's desire to increase profit margin.

"three bug fixes hardly seem to require a 6 mb patch."How on earth could you possibly know that?

You must of downloaded a different patch. My patch notes show me everything in the patch window.

Well, I do not exactly know, which is why I said "hardly seem" instead of "cannot".But, changing the line "cooldown=0" to "cooldown=120" in the Ritual of Summoning code sheet is not going to require a big update, even if they just decided to replace the entire *.mpq that line is in. And the largest one of those on my computer is 2.5 mb. What is going on with the rest of that 3.5 mb?
