Re: World of Warcraft Updater
It's Both. Their updater does have a primary connection to a direct connection with blizzards FTP downloader. The other 60-70% or so of the connection IS P2P. Hence the problems. Some of those peer to peer connections may download erroneous chunks because of the reset, and therefore the whole download is corrupt.
It does have the ability to dynamically adjust to the lack of P2P ability wether restricted by your ISP or your firewall(s), however this ability is obviously not perfect.
