Question from ChairYeoman

Game does not connect to Battle.net?

I bought a boxed copy of the game, and after installing it, it patched perfectly, but the game wouldn't connect to battle.net, saying:

"The game is awaiting a response from battle.net. The service may be temporarily unavailable or your internet connection may be down. If you are not connected in a few moments, please check your internet connection and try again."

After a while, the box is replaced by one saying:

"Battle.net may be temporarily unavailable or your internet connection may be down. Please check your connection and try again."

I then uninstalled it and downloaded it from battle.net, then installed that version. It still has the same problem.

I've unblocked the program on Windows Firewall, and everything else works fine. I've also tried running the program as an administrator.

I've also tried all the troubleshooting on the Blizzard site (flush DNS cache, reset modem, unblock ports, etc. And the traceroute works perfectly.)

Is there something I'm missing? I'm running Windows Vista on a Toshiba Athlon laptop.

ChairYeoman provided additional details:

Never got my IP banned, and never played Diablo II. I played the original StarCraft though- and its working fine. Besides, I changed my ISP about a month ago so whatever I did can't still be there.

dawrkhorse780 asked for clarification::

I have the same problem connecting to the game, I'm also getting a message: "The game is awaiting a response from battle.net. The service may be temporarily unavailable or your internet connection may be down. If you are not connected in a few moments, please check your internet connection and try again."

Does anyone have the answer to this yet?

Please let me know.

Did you ever play Diablo II and use cheats to get your IP banned?

I have the same problem, just can't log in. And I've never played any Diablo games. I hope it just some server problems...

No cheats/cracks/warez used here.

The game was running great until I began having this problem on August 3. I can login to battle.net with my browser but not with the game. I get the message:

"The game is awaiting a response from battle.net. The service may be temporarily unavailable or your internet connection may be down. If you are not connected in a few moments, please check your internet connection and try again."

I've tried disabling my firewall, opened ports 1119 - 1120 and 6112 6119. I even tried opening all ports.

Ive noticed that since the latest patch, when starting the game there is a Starcraft II graphic thay says:

Launcher connecting to patch server

Maybe the last patch did some voodoo to our connections?

I had this problem the first time I tried.. then I tried again at 2:30 am (eastern time) and it worked... has worked fine ever since.. I have a feeling the problems you are all experiencing is ue to server bottle neck....try logging in at an odd non-peak time for your first connection.
