Starcraft II/2 PC: List of Problems after Installation?

It has been a good few hours since Blizzard launched Starcraft II on the PC, so what are your thoughts after playing? We have heard some reports of various problems within the game – have you experienced any?

Users have been posting various problems on the official forums, as well as places like Amazon – where the first user reviews are going live.

It turns out that the game is suffering from some installation errors for some users, although we’re not sure how widespread this is at the moment. The game is also giving out various error messages, some of which include ‘no association’ and ”Starcraft II requires a patch, would you like to install and download the patch now?”

Have any of you encountered any problems with the game during or after installation? List them all here for other users to help out.

    My problem is that my sc2 just wont play offline or online!! It just doesn't make sense to me. I clicked the play as guest and it says 'must have a character in sc2 account' so i register and create my own account. Trying to start the game.. then this patch downloader showed up. So, I waited an hour or so. The play button is finally on. I was about to click it and it start to download AGAIN!! That keeps happening over and over again. I disconnected from the internet to see what happens. AND I can't launch the game. Help!!!

    MIKE: Figured it out for me people so you gotta go to your control panel and got to security center and from there go to internet options from internet options go to connections and go to lan settings uncheck use proxy server and check in automatically detect settings bam worked for me.
    Totally fixed it for me, thanks a lot!

    For some of you. I live in the USA and have a DSL connection using a D-Link Modem / Router. The source of my problem was that I had set my router's firewall to high security which blocks the port traffic to and from Blizzard. Some of you might want to:
    Open your browser
    type in the address ''
    and navigate to the router settings that control your security or port traffic.
    Set them down to medium or low and the update should work no problem.

    For those that installed the game and are having patch update issues, ensure you have outbound TCP allowed for port 1119 – once I opened that up in my firewall everything worked. good luck !

    • Helge

      Thank (allow TCP 1119) works!! SUPER!!!!

  • Brown

    anyone know what port blizzard uses outbound to connect to the update server and install patch post installation?

  • Iliya
