Network Disconnect error post-2.4 patch

  • FAE
    I was playing the game earlier today before the patch dropped. However, post-2.4, I am unable to successfully connect to a game. It fails if I create a game myself or if I try to join a game that a friend hosts. It hangs at the loading screen for minutes on end until it finally loads to the game up to show me "Network Disconnect: The game connection has been lost: your client has been disconnected from the server." My friends tell me that it initially shows me loading into an Act, but then after a minute or so says I'm back in the Menus (though on my own client, I'm still stuck on the loading screen).

    I attempted to log into the European region to see if I was able to connect there, but there seems to be an error where it's saying that I have to redownload the patch even though I already have it. The battle.net launcher says I'm up to date, so in that regard, I'm stuck in an endless loop.

    This is my Looking Glass result:

    I have tried power cycling my router and deleting the battlenet cache on my PC. I also ran a scan and repair, the result of which was nothing to repair. Is this just from the servers getting slammed from people logging on for the new patch, or is there an issue here that I can actually fix myself? If it's just a matter of waiting for the servers, that's fine, but I don't know if there's something else I can try right now.

  • Thanks for posting here, FAE. I think this may be related to your location, and it could be a DNS issue. Can you try these steps, and see if they help?

    1) Reset your network to clear any residual connections and cache.
    2) Flush the DNS Cache.
    3) Use Google's DNS.
