    I just downloaded the Epic client for the first time to play Red Dead Redemption 2. I prepurchased it and was looking forward to playing it on release. It turns out the install download is 112GB and sadly my connection maxs out at 1MB/s. That means 31 HOURS of download. Without a download limiter I can't use the internet for anything else, even browsing the web is incredibly slow because my bandwidth is saturated ... . and I'm expected to put up with this for 31 hours! I think I might have to get a refund, amazing that this feature request is from 2015. Not very Epic is it.

          still waiting here too... The really horrible part is that its on port 80, if it would have been a non standard port then I could have shaped the traffic in my router at the very least. You dont want to put port 80 into the slowest lane, because then that slows down basic web browsing.

          I mean kudos for something that downloads so fast that it basically creates a denial of service attack inflicted on my entire local network. Anytime I want to troll my family members, all I have to do is update a game in the epic games launcher.

                      Thank you for your awesome feature request. I have submitted your request. If for any reason you need to reference this report in the future, please refer to: UE-13530

                      Cheers!
                      Can anyone point me towards this mythical UE-13530 reference? It's not in the Trello, and a Google just returns a single other thread on these forums.

                        Hi guys, I would recommend the software Netlimiter. or any type of network traffic controller. It can easily limit the download or upload speed of any application on your PC. Cheers
