19 GBs for what? 2v2 PvP and fixes? That’s crazy.

It’s not 19gig, I downloaded it in about a minute.

Seems to be the same as 1.1 did, where it verifies your existing files from the actual 19GB update it did and then actually downloads the new files (~150MB it seemed on my PS4).
Takes a while to do the verifying thing but not ages and doesn’t download through that period (afaik).
