I was thinking of a return but it will take forever to get all those updates.
Everyone's game will patch to the expansion. It's about a 3Gb patch. I have the original game. It patched then I went to my AoC account page and paid for the expansion there. Of course the content won't enable fully unless you have an active account and pay for the expansion.
I wouldn't bother with the DVD, the only thing extra you get with it is a puma I believe. If you pay for the expansion from your account page you still get the; ravager, kappa, ring of sleeping demons and tats for your other characters.
The patch really isn't that bad with a decent connection.
