I can't play StarCraft II without an internet connection

Follow these steps to use StarCraft II's offline mode:

  1. Make sure the game is fully patched and up-to-date.
  2. Disable your internet connection.
  3. Launch StarCraft II.
  4. Enter your username and click Connect.
  5. Click Play Offline.
  6. Click Enter.
  7. Select your game type and begin.


To use offline mode, you must have logged in to StarCraft II within the last 30 days.

Matchmaking, friends lists, party formation, and other social options are not available in offline mode. No achievements or stats towards achievements will count during offline mode.

If you can't log in to one region, try logging in to another region to fix online restrictions. After doing this, you can log in to your main region again.
