Hi guys,

It'd help a lot if there was more information provided, can you both please respond with as much of the following as possible?

Country -
Modem (and firmware version if known) -
Router (and firmware version if known) -
Network device (Driver version if available) -
Operating System -
Security Software installed (Firewall, Anti-Virus) -
Traceroute -
Using this command would also help: pathping > c:\pathping.txt

Thanks. :)

3G internet connections are not supported and you may experience issues while using those as they can be unstable at times, which is why we're unable to effectively troubleshoot them.

Please connect to landline/cable broadband connection and then test the game again to see if the issue persists.

In regards to your question about our server status - the servers have been working as intended over the weekend and there have been no issues on our side.

I have played a lot over 3G before and recently over 4G without any problems until the last 2 weeks since I play versus AI (local game, offline play). But even if I log on I can not play offline vs AI from time to time during the last two weeks due to "StarCraft II: Starter Edition cannot play in offline mode."

Clock/Date/Timezone unchanged. I was logged on within the last 48 hours, so the 30 day limit is not the issue. This has happend several times the last 2 weeks, and seem to be only on this laptop since Windows 7 was reinstalled aswell as the game (client downloaded from

Since the game works sometimes this is VERY annoying - I cant verify I will not run into this problem by logging on, playing a game online, going offline and test again since it might work - just to fail when I am out of network reach.

BLIZZARD - FIX THIS! Why should I buy Heart of the Swarm when the game is not working AS IT SHOULD?
