Rly. Me and may be 100 bought this game in Steam. It's too expensive for us here and people are not so rich to buy such games from Steam. So feel free to download from Ukrainian servers. As for me I can download even tomorrow. I wanted to help. That's all! See ya on the BF

Does anyone know how to change the download server location in the new Steam ui? Can't seem to find it.

This really does work. Go to VIEW - SETTINGS - DOWNLOADS - REGION and change it around. Ukraine has me downloading at 1 MB/ sec consistantly. Should be done relatively quickly! Thank you very much sir!

The new steam UI does not let you change servers, so you will have to go back to the old one to do that.

:(

THis may be a silly question; but would the actual game content be localised for the Ukraine if you donwload it from their servers? Or do they host all versions on every content server?

Right Steam Icon, Click Serttings-->Downloads+Cloud-->Download region Dropdown Menu, and then select your region.

That's in the new UI BTW.
