There was an error in handling the request

When I start up WC3 it says “there was an error in handling your request” I already tried updating the game and repairing the game.

That’s pretty bad. The last update was almost 8 months ago so that might be an issue of a different cause. I just started having this issue today.

Looks like the DNS servers are down.

You can play if you’re already in the game but you can’t authenticate.

Same issue here. Worked as of 11/29/2021. Tried scan/repair, no fix. Tried uninstall/reinstall, no fix. Never bought reforged, have registered my old CD keys.

Same issue as well, no problem with playing Reforged with a Classic Wc3 Key until today. Tried Scan Repair, CPU restart, reclaiming CD Key, Uninstalling & reinstalling via WC3 Classic downloader. All nothing. Impressively annoying

To reinstall the game client you need to visit blizzards web site on the browser and search for for installing game client from your cd key or something like that. I tried reinstalling but it doesnt do anything

Same issues here. Reinstalled and everything.

Same here, can’t log in. I have classic WC3.

As a friendly reminder this company destroyed my 5000 win classic profile when they made Reforged & reset me to 0. This is why I won’t give them another penny.

Looks like it’s Blizzard’s way of forcing upgrade to reforged. Only appears to be effecting Classic players?

What a stupid way to install it.

Thank you for the help though!
