After the latest StarCraft II patch (v1.5.2), I have been having a major issue with Blizzard’s StarCraft II. Every time I attempt to create a new network cooperative or network versus game, after the loading screen, I return to the StarCraft II main menu screen. Which is getting more and more frustrating as days go by.
To try and fix this error I completely uninstalled StarCraft II, then I proceeded to download the StarCraft II Client Installer from Battle.net. After downloading the installer, I then ran it. After about 4 hours it installed and completed successfully (after downloading about 8gb of data). After all of this I as able to play a for a few hours without any issues.
The very next day, the auto updater attempted to update StarCraft II and now I am stuck again. ARG!
I have submitted a support ticket as follows:
Dear Mr Blizzard, 😀
When I try to play a cooperation game, after the loading screen, the game returns to the main menu. I think it may be a DESYNC issue.
I have already re-installed StarCraft 2, after a complete un-install, and I was able to play for a few hours.
The next day I opened StarCraft 2 and it was bugged out again. The cooperation game always returns to the main menu after the loading screen.
I will post a update once I receive a reply from Mr Blizzard.
I also attached a BlizzardError.zip to the Support Ticket. The file is found in

How To Fix
A Complete re-install fixed the issue. BUT, after a day or so, the launcher tried to auto update and got stuck in a loop, after which i got stuck in exactly the same situation.
Hopefully I will locate a more permanent fix and when I do I will update this post.
