Same here, I haven’t been able to load a Custom > Melee > Lobby for 2 days now.

@Blizzard: any word on what the issue is, when it might be resolved or if there is anything we could/should do about it? We’re kind of stuck here…

Same issue for me here.

How to submit support ticket?

Spam support tickets so the guy in charge of forums is constantly harassed to get the tech guys moving lol. (edit: I meant the one tech support guy left for sc2)

Incompetent monitoring system, “looks like it started yesterday”, you don’t have automatic alerts for this sort of things?
Hundreds of users experienced the issue yesterday and it happened again today, noone could create lobbies. This is unacceptable, especially for the holidays traffic.

I will add onto this that it seems to prevent most maps. Some maps are fine, ush as direct strike, while others, such as Ark Star or Dust Bowl(A blizz melee map) gets blocked.

blizzards support twitter has acknowledge the issue from a replay to someone asking them about this last night as they said as of 11 hours ago “its a known issue and there is no ETA” what bothers me is they wont publicly make a statement on this issue, only just replay to people as far as I could tell

GLOBAL_TIMEOUT error still remains while creating a new lobby (STD in my case). Looks like an attempt to make people spend Christmas eve in real life… But those of us who prefer virtual relations will find some other game

Game is completely broken. I just uninstalled. It’s beyond annoying and terrible timing. How does a huge multi faceted company screw up this bad in time for Christmas? It’s one thing to release a broken game ala project red. It’s another thing entirely to break a decade old game for multiple days over the busiest time of the year.

We’ve hit at least 48 hours of this server-side issue continuing, and “We’re looking into this” is the only response we’ve gotten in all that time. Has Blizz simply abandoned StarCraft II and this is their completely unsubtle way of letting us know?

Still global timeouts going on. Blizz baby, all I want for Christmas is to avoid family holiday obligations by playing this game…

Was able to play a game this morning…now back to an error message.

i actually brought the Mengsk character thinking that if I spent some money maybe they would let me play. didn’t work

It is odd that some of the custom game lobbies work like Direct Strike… or that some people seem to be able to host other lobbies that a large majority cannot. I can ladder 1v1, but I can’t play most custom game lobbies and I’m really sad about that because it’s been going on for TWO DAYS NOW!

I often times get the error “GLOBAL_TIMEOUT” when trying to create a lobby, after waiting about 2 minutes before it timesout.
