NewClassic-11551 submitted 1.30.2 Hot Fix 3 - 12/06/2018 72 days ago

Hail Warchiefs, Lichs, Commanders, and Keepers,

A new patch just in time for the weekend to improve the stability of the client and reduce issues playing your favorite maps.


  • Tab focus on custom games menu
  • Fixed bug causing one of the desync’s
  • Joining a game no longer results in double game join
  • Players joining after a computer slot will not fail to start the game
  • Players no longer need to join games twice
  • Improved desync check in attempt to reduce number of desyncs


  • We are aware of the issue of joining games around 1200 PST and are actively investigating the problem.

Note: Arranged teams still require port forwarding for 1.30.2. The current patch only removes the need for port forwarding for custom games, but dont worry, good things are coming.

Mark_Chandler submitted 1.30.2 Hot Fix 2 - 12/4/2018 74 days ago

Hail Warchiefs, Lichs, Commanders, and Keepers,

The Classic Team has been working hard behind the scenes to fix as many issues as possible. This is the second client patch to start addressing some of the core issues.


  • Error dialogs include error code and better text strings
  • Hide map download dialog on successful download


  • Reverted change to way desyncs are checked in 1.30.2 to help reduce likelihood of false desyncs
  • Map upload is more successful


  • One team maps cant be played due to client validation


  • We will be deploying a server fix to address this later today.


  • In game latency is measured as the total time it takes a request to go from the server to the client, through the client processing queue and back to the server. Some prior hosting bots used to half this time by default only measuring the time from the server to client.

People from EU can’t download the game at the moment

Do not know about that. Can you send me more details [email protected]

Mark_Chandler submitted 1.30.2 Update - 12/3/2018 75 days ago

Hail Warchiefs, Lichs, Commanders, and Keepers,

Today we deployed a server fix to help queue times for match making and chat related issues. We are still continually working on solving the problems around game client desyncing and disconnecting and hope to have another client patch later today with the fixes in it.

Thanks for all the current feedback and although we cant reply to everyone we do read and review all posts.

Yes, and yes. Thank you.
classic-1411 commented on 1.30.2 Patch Notes 78 days ago


The crashes in lobby are caused by an update to unavailable games. We’ve identified the issue and will have a hotfix out as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience!

We’ll address crashes and server issues first, then move on to other topics once those critical issues are resolved. Keep the reports coming. Go team.


Mark_Chandler commented on 1.30.2 Patch Notes 78 days ago

I cant create an account!

I get a error after clicking “ok” in the account creation screen: “An error occurred while processing the request.”

Thanks for the report. This issue is now fixed.
