Are you suggesting that suddenly, a multitude of us have all coordinated to change our local environments, modifying our gateway and switch configurations and adjusted our windows firewall rules to make this issue crop up?
Quite frankly I find your attitude here to be very dismissive and aggressive and not in line with the typical responses received. While I understand you are not employed by Blizzard you do carry the MVP role and as such the expectation is that you would interact in a positive way with the community.
I’ve worked in IT for 25 years, I manage large corporate networks and have analyzed more packets than I could possibly convey. And yes, I saw your response to the previous poster stating that they work in IT with “If I had a nickel…” but the point of these clarifications are to show that the people coming forward have experience in the area, as it’s understood that most problems are indeed the fault of the users environment / provider.
The issue isn’t impacting to the point of unplayability as it does eventually establish the connection, it’s just an inconvenience and seeing as this is the “Desktop App Tech Support” forum I cannot think of a better place for people to voice their concerns about issues with said application and seek technical support.
I’ll stop posting here, but you should probably re-evaluate how you’re interacting with the community - and I mean this in the most sincere and non aggressive way.
Thank you all for the help.
