    SC2 used to crashed more often in CFX but I haven't had a CFX-related crash in a while.

    Just an update on how bad the ladder system is currently, I was in a bronze division at rank 4 with 366 points and the number had about 450, I leave to do placement matches and win 3/5 matches and I still get stuck in bronze and at rank 55 to boot which is completely bullshit as I see people doing that good being placed in silver minimum all the time. Besides even that lovely tidbit of information I check the point listings and the number 1 player in my current divison only has 124 points, what gives with this ladder system?

    It's all about the win loss ratio. Once you are firmly seated in a division, it will take 30 or so games to reevaluate you. If you are dominating, then it will move you up.

    I singled out the issue, it is not an unstable overclock or anything else, it is apparently my ISP and their routing to the battle.net servers.

    Every other game and online service I use work perfectly, but in Starcraft 2 I keep getting battle.net disconnections and with the constant re-connecting it crashes the program.

    I ended up unplugging the networking cable from the NIC after I booted into the campaign, played perfectly for hours.
    Plugged the cable back in and started getting the disconnects and eventually the game would crash. This was replicated with both the Realtek NIC, the Intel one, the cable running to the router, and straight to the modem.
    I guess it could be a dying modem, will find out soon if I start having problems in anything other than battle.net.

    This sucks because I wanted to test out the new units in multiplayer.

    EDIT It just occurred to me that I didn't try a different cable during my troubleshooting, will give that a go too.

    I was having internet trouble as well, the only difference is that I was getting DDOS attacked. I had to beef up my firewall and even still it caused a little bit of chaos.

    Having the Linux gateway though, It's really easy to find out what is going on if you know where to look. I have a log of every packet that attempts to get into my server with the exception of blocked ICMP echo requests. I just drop those. Everything else directed to the gateway (not forwarded through the NAT,) gets logged.

    OK, switched out networking cables and can maintain a stable connection to battle.net, but the achievement service is constantly being disabled and re-enabled. Weird. Seems like the ISP is having problems, gonna give them a call on Monday. It's Good Friday and those guys at the cable company took the weekend off unless there is a major emergency.

    Sidenote, I am very rusty at this game. Won 2 of 3 unranked, but the loss was pretty bad.

    change your DNS to a different server, maybe googles (8.8.4.4)
    techtard says thanks.

    Used to run OpenDNS but stopped a while back, might give Google public DNS a try.
    Also, I uninstalled some features from Asus AISuite and blocked the program via firewall, seems like it was hammering my connection while constantly searching for updates.

    Things have improved since I did that, no more annoying achievement disabled/enabled spam while gaming.

    Still sucking it up while playing though, going unranked to get my sea legs back.
    Also, getting blindsided by some of the new multiplayer units. Keeping spoiler free has had its downsides!

    And most people aren't. I don't get the big deal with them. I have faced them as terran, zerg, and protoss and defeated them with ease. Siege tanks are a much bigger threat.

    Yeah, I posted about them a few posts up.

    Agreed. I rarely use them, only if I have an over aggressive zerg trying to end the game early with a baneling/roach push.

    The lack of TPU SC2 players disturbs me. Mussels and I are the only ones that game regularly. If anyone wants to play, I will be on for a while.

    I've been so stuck on Diablo 3 lately, that I can play on my laptop. For SC2 I actually have to be comfortable to be even kind of "decent"

    Ugh, I don't know what the fascination is with Diablo 3. I loved diablo 2, I have played through on at least 5 occasions, but diablo 3 just sucked. I couldn't even make it past act 2. I used to SC2 on a laptop, never really had an issue.

    You are zerrantos right? What time do you usually log on?

    I play every single day lol Just only 1v1 ladder and other 1v1's custom games

    I never play team games so that's why I don't bother letting others know that I'm on since everyone plays team games here.

    Also I just switched from T to Z

    Played terran for too many years sc2 + bw Nice change so I don't get completely bored with the game.

    P.S.

    LOL @ warhound workers
    Very nice blizz

    I think you play on a different server than I do. I am on NA. I do a good bit of 1v1 too, just no one really wants to play 1v1, so I either team game, or ladder.
