Stuck in "Entering Lobby"

Whenever I complete a game in SC2, I can either click Play Again or go looking for another game. If I click on anything to join a new game, I get stuck in “Entering Lobby,” and I then have to exit out of SC2, restart the blizzard agent, and then start over from scratch.

This has made group play impossible. I’ve also found this has been affecting many people I play with, too, not just me. I’ve had this issue for 5+ years now on 3 different computers.

C’mon already Blizzard. Its been years! Why is it not possible to flush out the information of the last game?

If have got the same problem, particularly after I finished an arcade game and I want to enter a new one.

It is more than annoying.

Same issue here, has been happening ever since I started playing in the Arcade. Sometimes it happens every 2nd game (I play one game of Direct Strike and next lobby I try to enter, i get this bug). I has gotten so annoying that half the time I don’t even bother restarting the game. I just go play something else.

Can’t believe this is something that has been around since 2016 and is still not addressed.

Blizzard doesn’t seem to care, there are simple steps to prevent it based on what I C on my PC. Wait till the screen suddenly refreshes, then you can join. Blizzard cares for nobody, they just want $$$. I will never buy d4, NO I don’t have a "SMART"phone, get real. Deal with it, or, get, dealt with. As I expect them to deal with me.

@Blizzard,
Is this problem known? We haven’t received any update so far.
Directly clicking ‘play again’ after an Arcade game causes this issues.
If we wait for 5-10 seconds until the score screen refreshes, it seems to works.

Maybe this will shed some light on this bug.

This is still an issue. It’s REALLY annoying and still happens every time.

If you don’t wait until the scoreboard kind of “refreshes” you can’t enter a new lobby without restarting the game.

This will never ever get fixed, so you’ll either have to wait for the refresh thingy, or restart the game every single F***ing time you complete a game.

I seem to have figured out the issue, well for me anyway. Don’t exit through the menu. Now I know most of you do this when you rage but I’ve noticed if I play to end and exit normally. It never gives me the bug . . . Just saying :blush:

any chance this bug will be fixed? (bump)

I completly removed sc2 and all its traces from my system. After installing it anew, I got the same issues. Btw the link still only leads to the general forum.
