Update stuck at fetching encoding table

Been stuck at fetching encoding table for about an hour now. Cannot hit play as it is grayed out.

Hey there Tyresh,

Getting stuck at fetching encoding table can be a connection issue, and app issue, or the game files being corrupt. I know this is almost everything it could be, but we can narrow it down with a few steps.

First, I would blame out app. Resetting it will make sure it is not at fault here. Perform Steps 1-5 here after that do not reinstall yet but follow these additional steps:

  1. Open file explorer/file manager
  2. Type the following into the address bar (not the search bar): %APPDATA%
  3. Delete the Bnet and blizzard folders inside the appdata folder if they exist.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 with %LOCALAPPDATA% and %TEMP%
  5. Empty the recycle bin.

If this does not work, to rule out the connection, are you able to try a mobile hotspot or a VPN for a moment? This will bypass the local network security and should let us know more about the problem.

I hope to hear from you soon, let me know if this helps at all.


Anything else working? I am having this issue too and did all the steps you listed here and still giving me the error after fetching encoding table

Oddly mine patched after I put up a VPNā€¦ weird.
