I've downloaded and updated to the latest patch AND connected to the streaming server to start playing.
However when I try to start the game while not connected to the internet it tells me that it cannot get the latest patch information and I only have the option to click "OK" which closes the patcher and does not start the game.
I started the game with internet then load a saved game and it said it had to download game data in order to play from a save game or restart to play from the streaming servers. I elected to download to play from the save and download the game data. I let it finish entirely and was able to play from my save. Out of curiosity I started the game connected to the internet then disconnected and chose to play from a save and it worked just fine.
My question is how the heck do I start the game whilst not connected to the internet onboard my ship?
This problem is the only thing holding me back from getting 'Heart of the Swarm'
