After clicking in the console (the units icons), I cannot use F1 or F2 nor select control groups (1-9) anymore. The keys don’t do anything. I have to select a unit manually to then be able to use the hotkeys again. Happens with both race, any time during a game. Could block other hotkeys as well such as spells, not sure yet.
Does this sound familiar? It hasn’t happened to me in awhile but maybe same issue, different fix.
This issue specifically was clicking “dead space” in the place where your unit icons would appear would cause your keyboard to lose focus of the game. That’s why hotkeys would stop working, that has been fixed though!
You guys rock!! With what you provided we were able to identify a cause to this issue. As a work around I heavily recommend not alt tabbing out once you’re in queue. I’m going to be updating the known issues list today with this issue to hopefully prevent further issues. Thanks a ton everyone ! <3
Thanks again guys! I’ll be updating the known issues list with this issue later today. The info you’ve provided has already proven to be very helpful! Feel free to continue to send in DXdiags if you want, but its not super necessary at this point
I saw your post on the other thread. While i don’t respond to every thread, i actually do read almost every thread on here. What you will usually see me respond to are issues that we need more info or data on to help the Dev team identify the root cause of the issue.
So just know even if i am not responding, i am reading
Thanks for the report Eddie!
Hmmmm. Alright guys! Thanks you gave me at least SOME info to go off of
If it does happen again, would you guys mind pinging the thread with as much info as you can provide?
Hey there Weaver,
Do you have any more information. What were you doing when you went to change your options? What options did you change? What race were you building? What was happening in the game when you opened up options? All that info would be awesome! Thanks

Are 2s not cutting it? Maybe you have 3 friends that miss arranged 4s with you? I definitely have 3 friends that are humans… Steve ate the grain in the last patch though, and he’s gotten a bit bitey. FFA for Steve the Biter.

SPECIFIC CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS
Thanks for all the reports guys. Its crazy helpful and the team is still working hard investigating the issues.
That’s all i really have as an update right now, but this thread is packed full of data and making it easier to investigate the more people that reply to it. So thanks a bunch!
My game is unplayable.
First, it’s not consistent. Sometimes it shows:
Starting game in 5…
Starting game in 4…
Sometimes it says…
Followed by the sound of horns…
But the result is always the same. The FIND MATCH button goes back green and nothing happens.
I also sent an email with a LOT more information.
What is THIS error?
“The game you attempted to join could not be found.|n|nYou may have entered the name incorrectly or the game creator may have canceled the game.”
Thanks Apps, I received your email. If you’re willing, log on today, try to queue, note the EXACT time you run into these issues. And either reply to this thread or with another email. It provides super accurate data and allows us to try to dig down to the root cause.
Krellen, I would like to extend a similar request as the one i gave to Apps. For Issue number 2 in your email, if you encounter it again, note the EXACT time it happens and include your timezone, and either reply here or in another email to me.
Thanks for all the help guys!
We are currently tracking down the cause of this issue and we need your help! What would be awesome is if you encounter the issue when you see “Game Found” then nothing happens, is if you can send me as accurate as possible time stamps of when it occurred. You can either reply here or send them to [email protected]
What would help us investigate this issue is if you guys could provide as accurate as possible timestamp of when these issues happen.
If you want to reply here you can, or if you want to compile multiple occurrences into an email and send it to [email protected]zzard.com that would be awesome.
