Downloading full version for offline play

Technical Support
So I was at a friends house and they had no internet connection, I tried loading up the game because I had thought I downloaded the full version already. The game tried loading but gave me a message saying in order for you to play offline you need to have the full version downloaded. I thought the game fully downloaded when I installed everything the first time considering that I own it after having purchased it and registered the game with these guys.

I have wings of liberty and heart of the swam, still have my CD's, my system can run the game without a doubt, all updates are to downloaded, and nothing like admin or firewalls are blocking anything.

So my question is, how do I download the full version so I can play things like the story mode and custom games against bots offline whenever wherever I am????
I believe since hes got no internet connection, the patcher needs to verify all the files are there with the database on blizzards end regardless....

at least that's what I think that needs to happen just for the initial comm's.
Hello Andres,

I believe that offline mode is 'active' for 30 days from your last login. After that, the game must reach the servers again for authentication checks and if it's not able to, it will put itself into Starters Edition mode.

Could you try logging in to see if this renews your 30 days of offline playtime? Also make sure that your system date and time are correct.
okay so what I am getting from that is in order to use the game offline I need to login within 30 days before so it verifies all the files and updates with the game? Is that right? so long story short just update and verify with the blizzards servers before I go off using it offline?

I checked also and the date and time are aligned. I forgot to mention also that I haven't played the game in a awhile so it did make all the updates since then.

I logged in also and could not find anything in regards to the 30 days offline playtime. I will try later logging in to see if it all works by turning off my internet and trying to connect
Correct, there was also a post made by an employee who mentioned that the game requires online activation every 30 days. You can read about it here:

It may be old, but I believe it still applies. English isn't my 1st language by the way, so forgive me if my writing confuses you.

Really? Well I have to compliment you on your english, it is very well done as I would have never noticed. Could use a bit more satire though :P
