How to I play StarCraft 2 offline?
When I start StarCraft 2 offline (my network connection disabled), it prompts me for my Battle.net account name. After entering my account name, I select play offline. It then tells me that offline play authorization is required.
When I'm online, I can login to Battle.net with no problem and play. I searched around and couldn't find anything within the game to authorize my game client.
Edit: I can login and play online. Afterward it still doesn't let me play offline.
I picked up SC2 after 1.02 was released. I put it online, installed the patches attached this account with my wow account. Made a charecter and played a few games. Once I disconnected I tried out the offline mode to see if it worked. It did. Took the laptop to the ship and played a few more games. everything is great even runs on umtra settings. next day was failure.
What files would I be missing? I think none. Obviously this is an issue that ALOT of people are having and are having it the same way I am. If there is currently no solution then please state so. If one is in the works again, please state so. If I am required to have a persistant internet connection even though the box does not say that and the offline mode is missleading the please tell me how I can return the game and get my money back.
I know this is an old thread, but I read it and needed to post this: http://kotaku.com/5512576/does-starcraft-ii-require-an-internet-connection
Scroll to the picture of the box and read the enlarged part in the bottom right corner, and lo and behold the "Internet Connection Required" is there... >_<
Just letting anyone who is redirected here know it IS on the box, but the silly small print, geez... T_T...
