The region selector in the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app allows users to play with friends from around the globe. Friends lists are different in each region, so make sure you choose the correct one.

Note: Your Blizzard social region doesn't affect what region you play games in. Our Global Play article has more information on how to change your game region.

Selecting a region is easy, and the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app can help you choose the correct one.

  • When you create a new account or log into an existing account, click the globe icon dropdown button on the login screen and select your region, or click Help Me Decide.
  • Help Me Decide will display a map that shows the region we suggest for you. If you'd like to choose a different region, click Select a different region.
