Oct 20, 2015 [Solved] Issues What is this [Solved] tag? We have created a way to mark a thread as [Solved]. If you’ve found a solution to your issue, or fixed your issue, you can mark your post, and the entire thread, as [Solved]. This will put a small green check mark next to the thread title. If you see this, it means the player who created the thread found a fix. How do I mark my Post and Thread as [Solved}? Click on the drop down arrow in the top right corner of the post. Choose "Mark As Solution". The post will be tagged with a green “Marked As Solution” banner, and a green check mark will be added to the Title of your thread. Who can mark a thread as [Solved]? Only the creator of the thread (the “OP”, or Original Poster), or a Blizzard Forum Representative can mark a thread as [Solved]. I see a [Solved] thread. Where’s the solution? A small box with a green check mark will appear in the top right corner of the thread, under the Reply option. If you hover your cursor over that box, it will say "Solution". Clicking that will jump to the post marked as a solution. What if I mark another post as a solution? That one will be “Marked as Solution”, and the previous post will be unmarked. A Note about [Solved] Issues Please keep in mind that when a thread and post are declared [Solved], this may only apply to the OP’s particular issue and circumstances, and fits his unique combination of software and hardware. One fix or solution can help many other players, but it probably won’t help all players. If the fix or solution doesn’t help you, it is just one more factor to eliminate in the troubleshooting process, and we’ll try our best to help you narrow it down, to find the solution that applies to your computer, and your circumstances. Thanks to all of you who post your fixes!Glaxigrav0 Oct 20, 2015

11h App Won't Let Me Change Install Directory I've used the search filter on the forums but to no avail. I have the games already installed but when I go to settings to try and set the directory to the proper hard drive nothing happens. I click the button to change and the little blue circle thing just keeps spinning and nothing happens. I've already tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, deleted folders, everything that has been done and said in these forums I've done. I don't know what else to do. Please help.GusGus0 11h

22h won't update/install I opened up the launcher ready to play some Overwatch. However, Overwatch was unable to update because the launcher was updating. The update was still at 3% so I just decided to play something else while I was waiting. After a while I went to check the update progress only to find that it was still at 3%. Naturally, just decided to uninstall and reinstall the launcher but now the launcher won't even install. I've already looked around the fourms but I couldn't find anything that helped. The threads I looked at were also posted years ago so I'm not sure if the solutions would still work. I'm really itching to play some Blizzard games but I can't. Does anyone know a solution that worked recently?zchannel11144 22h
1d Battlenet couldn't connect, tried to reinstall and its stuck on "downloading new files" SO, to start it off, I got DC'd while playing. when I tried to log back in, the battlenet launcher wouldn't connect. so I decided ill reinstall it. ive gone over probably a dozen threads covering this already, deleting all related program files, cleaning DNS, my router, turning off firewall, and nothing is allowing it to download. I even restored my PC to a few days ago (when everything was perfectly fine) and it still wont download. I really have no idea what to do now. please give me some suggestions!sealteamBC4 1d
1d ExpressVPN and Bnet app I use ExpressVPN to use discord and I use split tunneling feature to prevent it from running on battlenet app but whenever the VPN is on I get error coded and can't start my game.

I did try that ofc but I still get that error code.Alice4 1d
1d Can't gift games since friendship switched to real ID. I have been friends with a person for several years and today he sent me a request to be Real ID friends. I accepted, but for some reason the store now claims I have not been friends with this person long enough to gift them games. Is this a bug? For some reason the same does not apply to him and he is able to send gifts to me normally.Poro2 1d

3d Blizzard App uninstall Crash So, I was playing overwatch and you still haven't gotten rid of any cheaters; all of them using aimlock that goes around outer edges of characters. Since I know you guys aren't gonna do anything about that as you haven't done anything for over 1 year, can you at least give me instructions on how to get rid of the game without crashing?

3d Unable to play games OR uninstall OR install! HELP! Ive been having this problem for a week and i cant figure it out. Ive googled for days, tried every solution. Ran as ADMIN even though that doesnt matter for me since UAC is off. Cleared the cache from all sources (ProgramData/AppData/Program Files/etc) no matter what i do it just says: Blizzard Agent went to sleep. Attempting to wake it up... More Help: BLZBNTBNA00000005 The launcher does log me in, i can chat to my friends and use every tab except the games tab, which is obviously the most important one. Opening the launcher creates 2 processes for and the longer i leave it open the more Agent processes it will open, it actually went up to 18 before i closed it the first time. I have shutdown all firewalls, anti virus, etc to see if that was the cause. Nope same problem. Even the uninstaller wont work. I cant even uninstall from my PC from the programs & features window in control panel. Downloading the installer from blizzard to attempt to reinstall it also does not work. It gets frozen at downloading files. It will sit there for hours. I have fiber optic with 50mbps up and down (6.5MBps) so it shouldnt take that long. PC Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit AMD FX 8350 8 Core CPU 16GB DDR3 Ram 8x OCZ 120GB SSD's in Raid 0 EVGA GTX 970 GPU Any help figuring this out would be great!Zilacon0 3d
3d Excessive GPU Usage - Blizzard Client Mining Bitcoin By Making A Bot Net? Does anyone else have unusually high GPU or CPU usage when battle net is idle (task manager and msi afterburner), it seems a bit odd that my gtx1050ti runs up to 25-30% for a completely idle application (specifically the process), no downloads or updates, nothing running in browser, no voice chats open. Usage immediately drops if a game starts running, which would prove that the process is limiting itself to provide the user a smoother gaming experience. which raises the simple question... what would an idle, simple in design application be doing to require that amount of graphics processing power for? BTC or ETH Mining? Friends have confirmed similar results, wouldn't it be nice if blizzard asked its customers for permission before burning their money in power bills?Muffins4 3d

5d Still can't stream First, my issue had been getting "Sorry, this content isn't available right now The link you followed may have expired, or the page may only be visible to an audience you're not in." Then it had gone to an issue that Blizzard already fixed, from a different thread, and now it's back to the content not being available any time I try to stream. When I pause it and restart it up again, there can be blips of sound, but it doesn't show anything, and doesn't even give the full sound of what's happening.Sesshylvr86 5d
5d Destiny 2: Repeatedly Getting Error Code 'buffalo' I recently installed D2 on my new desktop computer, however, it refuses to let me access the game whenever I start running it. It keeps giving me a message telling me to restart the application via the launcher. Every time I do this, it keeps giving me the same message. I've tried logging in and out of the launcher, changing my region, and have even uninstalled D2 on the laptop I used to play it on, yet I keep getting the error code. Is there a way to fix this annoying issue?WobbleCrab2 5d

6d Diablo 2 CD Key Hello, *Only looking for a reply* I believe this is where I was told I should seek additional answers. I recently submitted a ticket to receive a call back and I spoke to someone from about my lost Diablo 2 CD Key. I bought the battle chest years ago for Diablo 2 but I can only find my LoD CD Key so I cannot properly download Diablo 2 in order to play online. The representative I spoke with sent me a link where I can buy a new copy of Diablo 2 for $10. She said I could reach out to the forums as well to see if they can help me in any other way because that is where they assist the most for classic games. Basically, I am hoping someone from can help me download Diablo 2 properly without having to spend an additional $10 since I will likely only be playing this during the downtime between Diablo 3 seasons and knowing my luck I would probably find my original CD key after purchasing a new one. I understand if I have already been giving the best available answer but any additional feedback from Blizzard would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!YenomDraoh2 6d
6d Cant login to US forums Hello, I cannot login to the US forums for any game. My account is US based but I can login to the EU forums for wow and overwatch. When I login I see "Sorry, we are currently experiencing technical difficulties.". I have tried this in multiple browsers (safari, chrome, firefox) and they all do the same thing.Drawma8 6d

6d Redeeming a Code seems like FOREVER Why does redeeming a code takes forever. The Blizzard Shop is okay, the launcher is okay, the is okay, but when it comes to redeeming a code. It takes 9999999999 years to just complete once and all you receive is "OOPS. SOMETHING WENT WRONG?".EDWARD3 6d

6d Still Having Unresolved Crashes (ft. Consequences) My game has been crashing consistently for about a week, but in fits. I've got tickets open about it, but the steps offered so far have not solved the problem. Today I absent mindedly clicked on Competitive, which I have been avoiding in regards to the crashes. To my dismay I promptly entered a lobby, and of course the game crashed right after Hero Select with all penalties included. Unfortunate for me but better for the others on my team that it happened then instead of later risking their SR. This has immediately recommitted me to resolving this once and for all. Any help from the wizards at Blizzard would be great,DeathMetal1 6d
6d All of My Games Are Gone Woke up this morning to play some Diablo III or HOTS, or maybe some OW... had to re-login to the Blizzard app... now it says there are no Blizzard games on my computer.

Why can't the app recognize them?DeusVult5 6d

Warcraft 3 received an update and now I need the CD key to play, but I cannot find it under the Games & Subscriptions section in my account, as there is no Classic Games section or Warcraft 3. Yet, I do see Warcraft 3 Reforged there.zackparadox2 6d
6d Can't change brightness in War3 after last two patches As the topic states, after one of the last two patches, I can no longer move the brightness slider. It's fixed where it was the last time I changed it and grayed out. I tried changing different resolutions inside the game, but nothing helped. I have Radeon 4850, which the seller warned me had outdated drivers that can no longer be updated, but I got it for some $50. I appreciate any help or input on how to resolve this matter. Thanks!greendestiny5 6d
6d Updating games without logging into Is there a method to update installed games without logging in? I'm at a University with a computer lab dedicated to gaming, but the computers are 'frozen' to only allow changes during scheduled maintenance windows. It's time consuming to have to individually log into and update games, but I don't see a way to batch install updates or receive updates without being logged in... has anyone come across this or know a potential solution?TheHolyDiver0 6d

Jun 11 BO4 Error Code 750 So yesterday before the new update my Black ops 4 was fine and ran fairly well. After the update I have not been able to log back in without getting the error message.. "Can't connect to Call of Duty: Black ops 4 online services. The servers may be undergoing maintenance. Please try again later, Error Code 750." I've restarted, my PC, my router and scanned Black Ops 4 for any repairs and haven't been able to change this issue. I just recently installed the client so I know that's up to date? Can anyone else confirm this is not a stand-alone issue or have any insight into this? Thanks!Thevagazzler42 Jun 11
