Maintenance for the week of June 21:
• [COMPLETE] PC/Mac: NA and EU megaservers for maintenance – June 25, 4:00AM EDT (8:00 UTC) – 7:00AM EDT (11:00 UTC)

Why is my redownloading of eso so slow? How long did the redownload take you to complete?

First, I started redownloading it without uninstalling the game and it was super slow. 13 % downloaded in 4 hours.
I then decided to stop it and uninstall the game and then reinstall eso from scratch. It is still downloading slower than snail pace if that's even possible 😂.

I hear other people redownloaded the game but they are having big issues with crashes etc.

What could the problem be? 🤔
I'm pc windows 10 btw

Thanks in advance for your replies and hope your game is working well

    Making the following change in the ESO launcher can sometimes help with slow download speeds.
    • Start the ESO launcher.
    • Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the launcher.
    • This will bring you to the Launcher Settings menu.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the window and change the Maximum Download setting to 5mbps or 10mbps.

    Same here, it's still downloading the day after. Like wtf. Download speed is set to unlimited and I'm not exactly living on top of a mountain. I can play without issues against a zerg, but downloading this game is slower than a snail trying to go to wherever.

    The launcher seems to spend an inordinate amount of time pre-allocating files, each 2GB large. It does this for some time before finally starting the download, but before then it seem stuck at 0%. If you check the "depot" folder, you'll see that it is actually doing something.

    Less than an hour and that was while I was streaming a TV show.
