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

Jul 31 Banning issue Greetings, One of my friends went to Espport Arena in Riyadh city in Saudi Arabia, and suddenly Blizzard banned his all accounts for no reasons.

Jul 31 My games keep uninstalling themselves All my installed games have felt like uninstalling themselves a few times now. This hasn't been a matter of the game folder going missing and scanning for games to be able to play them again, but a good 200 GB opening up in my hard drive after booting my PC up again and my games being completely gone leading to me having to reinstall them all again. This has been about the 3rd-4th time this has happened and is becoming increasingly tedious with things like destiny 2 taking me minimum of 3 days to download with my net speed.Tuck5 Jul 31
Jul 31 Can't Connect to WoW or Overwatch Can't Connect to WoW or Overwatch no news ticker on Blizz app. In WoW i get an WOW51900329 error in Overwatch it will simply not connect. Reset your network devices to make sure your router hasn't become flooded with data. Tried Update your drivers and operating system to resolve any compatibility issues. Tried Release and renew your IP and flush your DNS to resolve any network conflicts. Tried Close all other applications to resolve software conflicts and free up resources. TriedEvel0 Jul 31
Jul 31 Can't log in to the launcher [Solved] I can't log in to the launcher. It gives me the error message, "Please enter your password." As if I hadn't entered anything at all (which I did). I know it's not that I got the incorrect password: I can log in to the website just fine. And I did, to change my password several times, each came up with the same error. I do have the option to simply continue offline, so I can still play the games: I just can't log in to bnet. I even entered the same password to log in just fine to WoW. So I just don't even know what the problem could begin to be. Any suggestions?Enderlord60 Jul 31
Jul 31 Warcraft III button greyed out Hello, I tried logging into after booting up Warcraft III, only to notice the button that normally turns blue (and henceforth clickable); remained grey and unable to click. I've repaired the client, restarted, waited 20+ minutes etc to no avail. Just wanted to get the message out, and see if anyone else was having this issue? My connectivity with everything else is fine. Thank youamsunday2 Jul 31

Jul 30 D2 - Error at log-in Upon logging in to D2 LoD I enter password and get thrown to an error message screen ... e.g. 7A3F67B8-4257-4C4C-AB58-B3572C7A6C69 happens frequently, and then randomly, doing nothing differently, I gain access ... is this a driver error because although I tick 'submit to Blizzard' I never get any feedback?Strangely5 Jul 30
Jul 30 You must restart the application using Blizzard's app in order to play Destiny 2 When launching the game the above message appears and the game is closed. The error code: buffalo is given. Upon reading on Bungies support sight the error code seems to have nothing to do with the previous statement and is rather related to service outages and being logged in on multiple pcs (which i am not).RoastedRoach16 Jul 30

Jul 30 Windows 10 and Diablo II Hi when I try to run the installer to install diablo II I get this.. Windows protected your PC Windows Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk. Im using windows 10 , I've tried running the installer as admin and that message keeps popping up , is this because diablo II and diablo II LoD aren't compatable with windows 10? . Some help would be appreciated.DrFeelsGood2 Jul 30
Jul 30 kills network connection I opened one day and it started an update of the launcher. I soon noticed that the progress was stuck at 1% so i tried to google it. It turned out that every time I opened I could no longer access the internet. I was still connected to the network but nothing would connect from the network to the internet. The issue is exclusive to my computer (not my phone, etc.) and requires a restart to fix.LazurTurtl3 Jul 30

Jul 30 Battle.Net Desktop Launcher NOT WORKING My Battle.Net desktop launcher is not working. About a month ago, I tried to log into Heroes of The Storm. When I opened the Battle.Net Desktop App, all of my games were uninstalled and had to be reinstalled before they were able to be accessed. The desktop app started it's own update and then never reopened as it normally does. I manually opened the app and all of my games were gone AGAIN. I followed all of the steps to properly uninstall and reinstall the app and it did not resolve the issue. I've repeated these steps probably 20 times I have followed all of the steps listed for deleting the temp files, uninstalled the app and reinstalled it. Nothing has worked. I already had my laptop checked for a virus and serviced to determine if it is an issue with my hardware and it is not. The issue constantly takes place no matter what method of access I use. I have even tried to access the game directly but it still requires the system to open the launcher, which then hangs up and doesn't open. When I check the Task Manager, it shows like 15 copies of the update agent and this doesn't make any sense. I am sick and tired of this. Ever since they forced us to use this stupid app, it's an absolute migraine to play any of the games.... When I try to open heroes of the storm or the desktop app i get an error code with a link that takes me to this website I've done everything that I can find on the forums to try and resolve this problem and yet nothing has been successful.GummyBear3 Jul 30
Jul 30 Can't disable launch on startup So, I want to disable from launching at startup. I went to the settings and unticked the launch on startup box. Didn't work, still launches. I disabled it in Startup. Didn't work. I tried finding it in RegEdit and removing it. Doesn't exist there. I didn't manage to find any other clues as to how to disable it, short of uninstalling the launcher, but I'm keeping that as THE last possible option. Any other solutions? I'm on Win10.Strider2 Jul 30
Jul 29 Two accounts on same email Hello! So my friend reasently bought overwatch through a code. He already had a blizzard account but he forgot that he had one so he made a new one with the same email. On that secound account he used the code for overwatch and logged out. When he tried to login again using his email he was logged in to his first account where he does not have overwatch. How can he log in to his other account again?Swoholo6 Jul 29
Jul 29 WoW account void of characters. I tried a few things. I'm sure I could have called some customer service line, but it's been 6 hours after submitting a eticket. I basically reactivated my WoW account and logged on only to find all characters missing. I looked stuff up online and tried to refresh the character list by using the Undelete button as well as making characters on realms I thought they should exist on. Can someone please chime in on if there is anything else I can do myself without direct customer service.Friedrice343 Jul 29
Jul 29 Destiny 2 Error Code: Buffalo Simply Won't Fix Got it for free from the promotion, installed, and repeatedly got the error despite launching it directly from the Blizzard Launcher. Attempted to Scan and Repair, Check for Updates, restart Blizzard Launcher, restart PC, Uninstall and Reinstall all 80 sodding GB, and switch regions to no effect. Bungie's support page on the topic was useless, can anyone here give me some help?Ascalaon25 Jul 29
Jul 29 I have to buy all of my games again All of my games were deleted I had to buy them again, I noticed this about a month ago, which is when I contacted Blizzard support, and told them that my games were deleted and that I had to buy them again. They said that maybe I was on another even tho I know I only have one account because I only have one email, so I wouldn't be able to make another one. At the time I wanted to play overwatch which I did have because I made video's on it for my youtube channel That's the link to my channel just to prove that I had it. The only other game that I had was Black Ops 4, I can also prove I had this because I still have the code for it in the case that I got for my birthday but I don't know if it will work since I have already used it once. I did buy overwatch again, hoping maybe I will have all of my stuff still, but of cause I had to start over. Any help with this would be really appreciatedCrazyApe2 Jul 29
Jul 29 Fails to Install - Windows 10 Title. Attempting to install the launcher causes it to throw this ambiguous error: BLZBNTBTS0000005D Or it blames my perfectly functional internet. One of the two. There are no applications or services standing in the way of it. And of the several launchers I'm forced to go through to play my games, this is the only one that consistently fails to install or otherwise throws major errors. I have previously attempted to get around this by copying over a install directory from my old PC; however, still presented numerous issues when trying to launch and games that required an update failed similarly to the install. Ultimately, this workaround proved futile and I manually wiped from my PC. I have since been trying to reinstall it to no avail.Garthok0 Jul 29

Jul 27 Nintendo Switch Doom Battlenet issues... At start up, the games Doom, Doom 2, and Doom 3 want you to log into your Battlenet account. All I see is “Error logging in”. Where it wants your “username”, is it wanting your email, gamertag, or name? I’ve tried all three, changed my password, and still get this error. Is the server having issues? All I know is I just bought three games that I can’t play.ExpiredMilk2 Jul 27

Jul 26 Possible fix for "Can't go online" bug So for the longest time I could not go online in BattleNet, despite being logged in. I tried all the fixes the support team recommended and they all failed me. But this one trick logged me in instantly and I was back to playing 1. Disconnect your computer from your home internet. 2. Connect your computer to a different ISP. I used my phone's personal hotspot (my cellphone provider is different from our home ISP). If you use the same ISP for your phone, maybe you can ask to borrow a friend's phone. 3. Try going online 4. Once you're online, reconnect your computer to your home ISP. Hope this helps!SexyFlanders0 Jul 26
Jul 26 Could Not Block Player & Error 7000 During a recent game of Destiny 2, I found myself unable to block a user spam messaging me. Since I normally prefer to leave Whispers set to Everyone, this is an expected occurrence that is fixed simply by blocking the specific user. This time, however, I could not. "Could not block player due to network error" was the message that greeted me. I sensed a challenge and began running some tests. The accounts involved in my tests were my main account (currently experiencing the blocking issue) and a test account I created specifically for this test. Here are the results: 1) The problem is not game-specific Whispers are sent via the client and can be found in the Social tab. With all game processes closed, the inability to block users via their profiles persisted on my main account. The test account was able to block perfectly well. 2) The problem is not network-related Despite the text of the error, it is not related to a specific network. Using the mobile app via my cellular network (separate from my home network), attempts to block the test account returned the error "Request didn't go through. Try again!" 3) The problem is not client-related When contacted about this issue, Blizzard Support usually replies with a link to this article: Supposedly, this fixes the problem by rebuilding corrupted client files. Prior to testing this solution, the test account could block normally and the main account returned errors. Upon deletion of the client files and rebuilding them, the same results occurred. 4) The problem is not related to block list limitations The block list supposedly has a limit. If the limit had been reached (highly unlikely), then the removal of at least one user from the block list would therefore make space for the test account to be blocked. Errors still occurred. 5) The problem is region-specific Upon swapping my main account's client region from NA to EU, I discovered that it was possible to block users while logged into EU, but not while logged in on NA. Finally, I decided to run some messaging tests. Please note the Privacy feature Receive private chat messages from friends only was disabled during these tests. Here's what I discovered: 1) Messages while friended acted as expected Messages were delivered perfectly fine between the main and test accounts. 2) Messages while unfriended returned 2 results While I was able to message the test account from the main account perfectly well, the test account could not message the main account without experiencing the 7000 error. This should not be the case since both accounts' privacy was set to receive messages from anyone. In conclusion, this seems to be a server-side issue that is account-specific and region-specific. If you cannot block users or are being returned 7000 errors when you are 100% positive the other user is not blocking you, it's not your fault. What was used to perform these tests: Platform: Apple iPhone / MacBook Pro Laptop / custom-built desktop PC Network: Spectrum / Verizon Clients: / beta Jul 26

Jul 25 Destiny 2 Persistent Buffalo Error Just finished downloading the game on PC today, and I've been trying to fix this annoying error all day with no success. I've tried every solution I could come across besides uninstalling the entire game, since it took me an eternity to download all 87gb of it and I would like to play the game before it goes on Steam. I've deleted caches, changed my password, logged in and out of my account several times, restarted my computer several times, tried Scan and Repair, made sure that I am not logged in on any other device, ran the app and Destiny 2 in administrator, turned my wifi router on and off, and I'm out of ideas. Is there anything I can do to avoid having to reinstall everything and hope to God the game works the second time?DorothyBot1 Jul 25
Jul 24 Moving bnet client I was wondering the best way to move my bnet client to a different drive.

Jul 24 Borderless Fullscreen Fix Workaround So putting the game into Borderless Fullscreen does't work it has a gap at top or side or offset slightly depending on what kind of system you running long time bug that they haven't fixed, but i found a work around which works fine. Press Windows Key + R type to bring up Run command box Type %AppData% Press enter Navigate to AppData > Roaming > Bungie > DestinyPC > prefs Right click on cvars (not cvars old) > Edit Find windowed_resolution, set your monitor size Save and exit the editor, re launch the game may still have border at top tho if you have border at the top, right click task bar, make sure the "Lock task bar" is un-ticked Grab the task bar move it around screen bottom > right > top > left etc until destiny window pops in centre, now you should be able to go back into game without borders (Reason for running borderless window is because OBS won't capture fullscreen bc of bungie)Applecake1 Jul 24
Jul 24 Overwatch 100% disk usage, and i cant see characters. When playing overwatch i've noticed a persisting problem. First it takes a longer than usual to get in the game most of the time the other players are already fighting. Second when i get in the game i cannot see my character or enemy characters this resolves eventually but by thetime it can take one to 6 min. I checked my task manager while doing this and disk usage is at 100 percent.StrangStrong0 Jul 24
