If you are receiving the error "Not available while initializing game mode" when trying to play various online game modes in Starcraft II, it may be due to a connection or file permission issue. Try the following steps to resolve this error.

  1. Reset your network devices to make sure your router hasn't become flooded with data.
  2. Release and renew your IP and flush your DNS to resolve any network conflicts.
  3. Check your network configuration to find any issues with your firewall, router, or port settings.
  4. Disable any proxies that may interfere with the login module.
  5. Update or temporarily uninstall any security programs, which may mistakenly identify the login module as a security threat.
  6. Try creating a new administrator account to resolve permissions issues.
