This is Not an issue, rather a solution to a common issue I’ve had for the past few weeks.
One day (probably after a windows update) my Battle.net client stopped working. i.e. “Oops, looks like something broke” or “Waiting for Blizzard service”. After many hours of reading troubleshooting forum posts and scouring your support page for help, nothing worked. And I tried everything short of changing ISP’s and building a new computer. I would get the service to start occasionally, but then I wouldn’t be able to install any games. It would et stuck on “Waiting…”. Other times after I restarted the app it wouldn’t start up again until I fresh installed it. It seems many other people are having the same issue I did and don’t have a solution.
After weeks of getting fed up from my friends inviting me to play COD I finally looked into it and tried setting up my own VPN, essentially changing my ISP without actually doing it. AND IT WORKED. I am currently downloading COD (all 250GB of it… Jesus) and haven’t run into a hiccup.
The reason I’m contacting is because I would have liked to see this solution on your troubleshooting guide as it would have saved me hours of headache. Just a little blurb, maybe under the “Change ISP” bullet.
Thanks for listening to my Ted Talk. I hope this helps somebody else.
