Hey All

I have recently moved and don't have a home Internet connection yet. Besides my job will put me in remote areas often where Internet will not always be available. I have my laptop at the office with me so I could install and activate my game. But when i unplug it from the Internet and try to play single player i get the message saying

1) "Can't connect to" and my options are "play offline" and "ok". So I push play offline and I get

2)"offline play authorization required" "to enable offline play, connect to to authorize your game client. you also need at least one Sc2 character on the account"

I have played a 1v1 match already (and lost), and I started the first mission, so I know that everything is authorized. What is my next step?

You have to be connected to the internet to authorize the game at least one time, after that you can play offline as much as you want.

I have made a account, I also played a 1vs1 ,and the first 2 missions at my office during lunch. If I load my mission before I leave I can finish it once i get home offline but the second it is finished I get an error telling me that i do not have the right language pack and then I get booted back to the log in screen. If I try to play as a guest while not connected to the internet It tells me that my client is not authorized for offline play

I get something like this too, and it blows my mind that I cannot get any help from any of the forums online. Not to be critical, some of you guys rock for trying, but man it blows my mind how much trouble a single PC game can be.

I can play Skirmish, challenges, and MP but cannot play the SP campaign. I just paid $60 for this too.

The actual message I get is as follows:

"Your Starcraft 2 account does not have access to the single player features. If you would like to access the SC 2 campaign, challenges, and single player custom games, you must purchase the full version of SC 2."

Then it states I "Need an authorized language pack" and jumps me back out to the log in screen.

Also when I attempt to play offline, it also tells me to enable offline play, go to Yet I cannot find anything on BNet to enable this.

Ty to anyone that is able to help, greatly appreciate it.
