Updating to 0.5.1 using the PATCH files

Hi guys, I don't really have a good internet connection and the patch size is quite large so I copied all the PATCH files(.PATCH) from a friend who already updated his client to 0.5.1. thinking that it works like WOT that you can just copy patch files to update your own. Now when I placed it in the updates folder and run the launcher, it downloads ANOTHER 2.5 gb of files without checking the file that I already placed which defeats the purpose of me copying the files in the first place. Does it not work like WOT's manual patching or does the launcher of WOWs even bother checking the files in the update folder? Thanks.

curse WG that change the patch name several times....

it was wows_51.128308_50.124262_client.patch at the first morning the patch out. the launcher failed me. and the torrent file come out several hours later.. finally i got the torrents file. i downloaded the patch using bittorrent. and after download finnished and i put the downloaded file to updates folder. the launcher want do download another 2.5 gigs. o.O
i cancel. i double check the update folder...

there is wows_51.128308_50.124262_client_asia.patch.download + wows_51.128308_50.124262_client_asia.patch.torrent
what? so i experiment the file name change.. i changed wows_51.128308_50.124262_client.patch to wows_51.128308_50.124262_client_asia.patch then i hash check it using bittorrent. result. yep those are same exact file. just different name. 

after that only small patch left that i need to download via launcher (about 90MB)

It actually works. Thanks a lot mate. Weird that WG changed names for the patch. It may be the reason for some errors others are experiencing now, idk.
