You have been temporarily restricted from the server


I have the same issue now. It worked fine before. How we can fix it?


Same issue as the rest. Is there any clear fix? or willingness from blizzard support to even look at it? Like some of the others in this thread, i have owned warcraft 3 and the expansion for nearly two decades. And still find myself in this diabolic charade, which seems to have no conclusion


Im getting the same damn message and I haven’t downloaded a hack since i’ve bought this game when RoC came out.

Whats going on @blizzard

EDIT: Fixed the issue, as others suggested flush your Dns.


Type “cmd” without quotes in the box.

A black command prompt will open up. type the following and then press enter
ipconfig /release

After you typed that and pressed enter, type the following and press enter again
ipconfig /renew

Viola! You should be ready to go, and war3 should allow you to connect to bnet once again.


Thank you. I tried another suggestion similar to yours, and it did not work.
But this worked, so thank you once again.


still same error - You have been temporarily restricted from the server


does not help, still same issue


I have the same problem. Downloaded wc3 today using the reforged keys nad whe i try to login to battle net it just tells me i got temporarily restricted. tested everything i could find, wifi/ethernet, dns flush, changing ip, reinstalling the game nothing works.

Ipconfig doesnt work for me.


same issue here, and I cant open a ticket either, getting this error:The submission included an invalid file type.


how does it not work? are you on windows? are you typing ipconfig or lpconfig

if lpconfig youre doing it wrong.

Same here.


  • No pirate software was used, unless it’s randomly WinRAR finally having its dues paid (wtf with these comments)
  • Tried releasing and renewing ipconfig per suggestion by Hectic. Also tried elevated cmd and connecting to a different network


  • Last time it worked for me was somewhen in Nov '18 (when account was freshly bought, from Blizz, and was not used since)
  • My War3(TFT) version is
  • Error message I receive is exactly the same


I had to re download the game from the launcher at after every update


I’am restricted,why ???
“mazinger_z” profile ?!?


¸to everyone here, i had same issues and the fix was really dumb. when you reset wc3 fully / your computer or your modem . your ip may change meanwhile due to many thing’s, including your internet service provider’s, how to repair it , in most case id suggest u plug pull your modem power cable and let your modem down 20-30 mins so it can fully reinitialize itself. after you do. just come back plug it back. wait 5 -10 mins and your error 3.46 should b fixed
