Jan 30, 2013 Forum Guidelines -- Please Read Welcome to the StarCraft II Australia and New Zealand discussion forum! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss anything StarCraft II-related with your fellow players from the Australia / New Zealand region. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the StarCraft II community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the forum Code of Conduct, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The StarCraft II forums are for discussion of topics directly related to StarCraft II The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to StarCraft II or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Do not bump posts The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called 'necro bumping' or 'necroing'). Petition posts are frowned upon These are discussion forums, and as such we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Do not post about locked or deleted threads Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum code of conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules.Kaivax0 Jan 30, 2013
Apr 15 Merge account? Hello, Why does my NA server has 2 accounts and... My progress for co-op is split some in one account and one in the other account. Can we merge them into the same account? Eg. One account has Nova Leveled Mastery 15 and the other has Stukov leveled mastery 51. is there anyway to merge the two accounts so I get a stronger 1 accountRitualMurder0 Apr 15
Apr 9 Australian playing on US server problems Intro So i get why blizzard decided to merge the servers SEA and NA together, but honestly.. I wasn't thrilled on the idea then and i still am not now. In Australia we are not know for the best connection in the world, yet i know that some people have good internet here however for me I have average net. Which means where most people would get 250 ping on US server... I get 300 ping on the server. It is unbearable. My experience/ summary I am in Master 1 and I absolutely hate it when i'm feeling good and going on a win streak only to vs someone from NA and feel completely out of control. I am not just saying this a someone from SEA, but also think about the Americans... This is there server, and imagine them running into the same issue of hosting a foreign server! It is not fair on us SEA players nor NA players to be playing on each-others server. Thoughts, opinion/ idea. If you are not keen of redoing the whole process and making our NA accounts playable on a SEA server then please just give us the option to PLAY on a SEA server/ region. I don't mind waiting for 3-5 min for a game of 1v1, i usually take a 5 min breather between each game anyway so it wouldn't make a difference to me personally. I am really upset that after years of playing SC2, i'm getting to a point where something beyond my control is sucking out all the fun in playing. I really hope the SC2 team recognizes this. I have spoken to many players on both sides, and everyone who has experienced this that i know is not happy. Thanks for reading, to clarify... I am not blaming anyone or any region, just simply voicing my concerns and hoping for a response.FrosT0 Apr 9

Sep 11 Desolate grounds I just happen to be curious on how old friends were doing, and as I opened my friends list in Starcraft, it just shows... ... No on has been online for years. People I once knew here have moved on, probably. It's kind of lonely, but I'm just sitting on Co-op missions now, because this is where I have most fun. If any of you old friends read this, know that I'm still here, playing this game every now and then.... In Co-op mode. Co-op mode is a dream come true for me. I don't think I'll be stopping anytime soon.... No... Never stopping this at all.NoVice1 Sep 11
Jun 30, 2018 Discord? Where can I find ANZ community on discord or Battle.Net app? Thanks for my question.Jimmy0 Jun 30, 2018
May 26, 2018 Merge achievements? Years ago I played SC2 on two different regions and racked up achievements (single player and multiplayer) on one and achievements (primarily multiplayer) on the other. I logged in about 6 months ago to give SC2 a go again and got prompted with the option to pick one. Why not just merge the two? If I had 500 team random race wins on one account, and 250 on the other, why not just call it 750 and purge the old account? Or at least give the option to do so? I noticed this when my friend also got back into SC2 and his profile is practically empty, he has clearly chosen the wrong one, but has now done a fair bit of co-op progress so that is his main now.Richo0 May 26, 2018
May 17, 2018 Please, we need ping balance NA-AUS As I understand it, if two players meet on the Americas server, one from NA and one from AUS, the NA player will have at least 150, sometimes 200-250 ping no matter what, but the Australian player will have 50-75 ping every time (assuming there's nothing wrong with their internet). With all due respect, Blizzard, how is that fair? I ladder on NA because I think I will have the best connection around players near me (West Coast NA is where I live), not to get destroyed by a player who lives halfway across the world who has significantly better ping than I do, every time. I had "West Coast" server selected instead of "Best Match" but to be fair, this is because I keep hitting Brazilian players with Best Match, or I used to. I'm not sure if that's changed, so maybe someone can fill me in on whether or not that's the best solution. My simple suggestion to Blizzard: balance ping. If an Australian player decides to ladder on Americas, instead of KR (as they are much closer in distance to KR than to the Americas), please make the game fair, ie, make both players have the same ping no matter what. I'm not suggesting to do this in every match obviously... I'm simply suggesting that when two people have two different servers, do not favor the "away" team, or any team in particular... if you had to choose, I would favor the "home" team, but it appears you have done the very opposite of that, Blizzard. I also would criticize the decision to move the entire AUS region into the Americas servers instead of into the Asian server, and I'm sure there was a reason for this, but now that it is the way that it is, I would appreciate it if Blizzard would put more effort towards removing advantages that are gained through being in one region over another. Thank you.CharmQuark2 May 17, 2018
Feb 15, 2018 Go Plat-Haven't Played Since SC2 Beta/launch I was Diamond in beta and launch. Surprised to see I got Platinum after not playing for 7 years. I bought void today to try after SC:R got me hooked on BW. What's with all the probes in the beginning and auto going to the mineral lines? Game really moves a lot faster. Those mines from Terran are a real B so far!imsorrisuck3 Feb 15, 2018

Jan 27, 2018 Hope for building skins I wonder if Blizz ever give us building skins one day. Even if its just the main building like in SC:R, where the Command Center/Nexus/Hatchery were given an incredible new look. Maybe on the next DLC campaign? Honestly, I don't mind. :DNoVice1 Jan 27, 2018

Nov 15, 2017 How can I play on the mainland Chinese server I'm a Canadian living in China. I speak Chinese but don't read and write it well and I prefer to have an English copy of SC2 and mostly play on the NA or other international servers through a VPN, but I do have some Chinese friends that I'd like to be able to play with. Isn't there any way I can log on to the mainland Chinese servers without downloading a whole new Chinese copy of SC2? That seems incredibly inelegant when all that's changed is the language (which you can change anyway if you're in Hong Kong/Macau/Taiwan) and the server IP.Hautamaki7 Nov 15, 2017

Aug 14, 2017 Change Account Name Hello. I have accounts on every region and I would like to change the name of my account on my ANZ/SEA account. I realize that the server merged with the Americas, leaving me with two accounts for NA. I am worried that if I try to name change this account, it will instead name change my Americas account. Please let me know if there is some way of changing the SEA -> Americas account name. ThanksBob2 Aug 14, 2017
Aug 10, 2017 Unable to change Forum Profile after merge. Hi, I lodged a Support ticket and they pointed me in this direction. After the merge, I'm stuck with this Profile on the forums/website.

Aug 5, 2017 SEA achievements to Americas?

Aug 1, 2017 SEA server.. what is happening Hi all, Probably a year ago I was all up in starcraft, played vividly on weekends with Hots. Then I had taken a short break, decided to start gaming again only to find that everytime I tried to "match make" on the SEA, it either was taking about 10 - 15 minutes to find a game, or not all. This went on for 2 weeks, so I stopped playing on the SEA server and switched to the Americas server. no problems at all, match making was instant no matter what game I was playing. the only problem is on the Americas server I dont retain any of my achievements. So i stopped altogether after a while as I didn't want to waste my time trying to retain all of my achievements points. Lotv came out, smashed through it and completed it. Thought that there would be a lot more people playing with the recent released, started the "match making" again on SEA server same thing no luck. Sat there literally for 20 minutes on a ranked 3v3 with nothing. Blizzard - can you please either merge the SEA server with the Asia server, or allow me to move my profile and its achievements to a server where there are actually a lot of players. I put a lot of time into my achievements and would like to continue to still play. Those who are having the same issues can you add your responses to this thread, I want to see if we can convince the developers to get our profiles linked to other regions so we don't lose the hours we've put into the game. If this needs to be moved to tech support happy to do so.TiTaNTwO44 Aug 1, 2017

May 20, 2017 ANZ Game Servers Now Available! Blizzard Entertainment is pleased to announce the immediate availability of StarCraft II game servers hosted in Australia, ahead of the November 10 launch of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. This new infrastructure should result in improved gameplay for players across Australia and New Zealand. FAQ Q: What benefits will local game servers have for StarCraft II players in ANZ? A: By hosting StarCraft II game servers in Australia, ANZ players should benefit from improved gameplay responsiveness and a better gameplay experience. Q: When will these new game servers be available? A: Local StarCraft II game servers are available now! Q: Will these new game servers affect who I can play with in ANZ and the Americas? A: No. Because the new local StarCraft II game servers will communicate with the existing servers based in the Americas region, you will be able to seamlessly play, group up, and chat with friends in both ANZ and the Americas as you do currently. Q: Will I need to pay any fees, or register to transfer? A: No. Because the new ANZ StarCraft II game servers will continue to be linked with the Americas, all existing levels, achievements, and match history will be retained. Australian and New Zealand players currently accessing other regions, and who wish to benefit from the improved performance of locally-hosted game servers, are encouraged to switch to the Americas region in preparation for the launch of Legacy of the Void. Q: Can I choose which game server I connect to? A: Our most recent update, Heart of the Swarm Patch 3.0.3, allows the option to select a preferred game server in the StarCraft II Options Menu. However, we would like to clarify a few points about this feature before you try it out. • This setting will default to Best Match, but players may wish to change this if they notice connection issues when playing on a specific server. • Please note: As we continue to improve and expand our game sites, our intention is for Best Match to provide the best play experience for most players. If you are not experiencing issues, it is highly recommend that you leave this set to Best Match. • If players in a party have conflicting game site preferences, the game server that is most commonly selected among the party’s members will be used. • It is still possible for players to get matched into games on servers they did not select. This will be rare, but can still happen. • If players in a party have different preferred game servers selected, it will try to match to the most preferred site. • If you are not in a party, you are almost guaranteed to receive the game server you select, but there is still a small possibility you will be connected to a different server. Q: Will the new ANZ game servers only be available to players who purchase Legacy of the Void, or will they also work for Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm players? A: All StarCraft II players will be able to take advantage of the local game servers straight away at no additional cost, regardless of whether they purchase a copy of Legacy of the Void. Q: Where are the servers physically located? A: The ANZ StarCraft II game servers will be hosted within a data centre in Sydney, Australia, and service players across Australia and New Zealand. Q: Will local game servers change the way I activate Legacy of the Void at launch, or any other Blizzard Entertainment games? A: No. Local StarCraft II game servers will have no impact on the way players currently register physical copies of Blizzard Entertainment games, or the unlock timing or process for activating digital copies of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void. While the new, local game servers should provide an improved gameplay experience, product activation and authentication will continue to be handled by servers located in the Americas. Players in ANZ will be able to begin the fight to reclaim the protoss homeworld from 4 P.M. AEDT on launch day, November 10, 2015. Q: Does this mean other Blizzard games will also be getting local servers? A: Blizzard Entertainment is committed to providing our players around the world with the most epic experiences possible. We will continue to explore optimal solutions for all of our franchises in each region. The addition of local game servers supporting StarCraft II brings the title in line with our existing ANZ game server offerings for World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and Heroes of the Storm.Arcagnion45 May 20, 2017

Apr 4, 2017 Regional progress zoning hurts Australians. Edit: This can be deleted, I feel even the ANZ/SEA forums are kinda dead and posted elsewhere. This comes up from time to time, and I’d like to raise the issue again. Please sync (at least) non-financial features such as achievements and race progress/Co-Op levels across regions. Whilst there would be a lot of data to trawl, it would be entirely possible to sync earned achievements scattered across regions into the one collection. It’s a particular sore point for Australians who had to set up on SEA and may not have wanted to leave their achievements/progress behind when servers were finally made available for us locally. I’ve done too much in SEA to want to abandon it entirely and this has simply grown with time as features and expansions have been added. Sure, retrospectively we could have switched in as soon as local servers were available but it’s easy to see how attachment prevented us from letting go and now we feel even more stuck to a region we no longer really belong in. I don't have the kinds of hours/progress more serious players have racked up, but I also don't have the time to re-earn all that I have thus far :( I know purchases might be trickier to sync, but please, please, consider amalgamating player progress across regions.Reivster1 Apr 4, 2017

Feb 15, 2017 ANZ Cup eligibility Hi all, Last year we trialled hosting some $1,000 ANZ cups between WCS seasons. The goal of these cups was to provide more competitive opportunities for Australian and New Zealand StarCraft II players throughout the year. We decided to try something different for the first cup of 2017 by opening up the competition, removing the regional restrictions. Due to feedback from the community regarding this, all ANZ $1,000 cups from now on will be open to Australian and New Zealand citizens or residents only, with no exceptions. Those living in ANZ with a working/student visa are also accepted. This decision only affects the $1,000 ANZ cups we run between WCS seasons. The following dates are confirmed for $1,000 ANZ cups in 2017: • 5 February (completed) • 18 March • 16 July • 17 September • 21 October The regional WCS $10,000 events are separate, and will follow the WCS eligibility rules for 2017. The regional WCS Open Qualifier for Season 1 begins in late March. Sign-ups for both the regional WCS Qualifier and the 2017 ANZ Cup #2 are now open—be sure to sign up!Arcagnion0 Feb 15, 2017

Dec 26, 2016 Offline custom game Any ways to play Starcraft 2 offline especially custom game? My poor internet often disconnected halfway through causing inconvenient experiences for me when playing custom game. Please do not ask me to get online and then play it offline, because when i finished a game i have to restart everything? I hope that Blizzard could entertain offline users as well as they are part of your supporters too especially in purchasing full 3 episodes with a exorbitantly expensive price. With all due respect, i really cannot accept the fact that your heartfelt supporters cannot enjoy just like those online user does. Hope that you understand our eagerness to play your game in full glory and satisfaction. Regardsfigerhanker0 Dec 26, 2016

Jun 5, 2016 Sea Server is the only place i can play With Low Ping and i play terran so playing in other server is impossible for me but in sea i come to see it has low player base . I wish developers would link us to servers who can actually play at our server in sea and don't lag . Its kind of frustrating waiting for 10mins tops to search for a game and find out your playing with someone that is not your league and probably waste both of your time.Meliciouz5 Jun 5, 2016
