ive just completed the installation of hots, and i switched the game client to hots through the menu, and i still cannot play multiplayer

everything has a lock combo thing next to it. is this normal because the servers are overloaded, or do i have to do something?

(not sure if it helps or is relevant, but instead of saying hots, it says "starter edition")

i have this same error. is there an answer here? I played HOTS fine a couple of days ago and now it won't work in any matchmaking mode?

my mode says: heart of the swarm.

Yeah all N/A matchmaking for everyone is currently locked out, unless you were already in a game, but once that game is done you are locked out too.

This happened to me too. I finished playing an AI game but when I went to start a new one the menus wouldn't load. So I logged out then back in and now all the game menus (that were previously available) are locked and say I need to upgrade my copy of Starcraft II to access them.

*whew* I was worried that I got kicked out or something... but seeing all this, it now makes more sense. I just had a match the other night and did well. But at the end, the other guy said he's going to report me simply because I won, and then this... Well, glad it's not just me at least. Lame.

There is a problem with the servers where the game would "time out" and I would receive a lost up to 15 points.

Same issue. I decide to play for the first time in weeks, and I'm locked out. What awful timing.
