For some reason I can't log on east... at all. I can log on every other server.

There has to be people here playing west. What channel can I find a game / whos playing? Tried opening up the right ports to host but that hasn't worked.

Type in "resolve *realm.battle.net" without the quotation marks. If you get many ip's, then that works.

The second test is to type this:
"connect *realm.battle.net" without the quotation marks.

...apparently I am IP banned. I find it hard to believe considering the fact that I just installed Warcraft III literally a few days ago and it didn't work from the beginning...

My roommate is on the same network as me... I don't think he even plays War3 so I doubt he could have gotten the IP banned. I'll have to contact Blizzard about this.

They just dished out thousands of bans (a week ago?) it could have been something you did in the past..

shit, my brother had this disc for years so I dunno what the problem could be. Are they banning based off of CD key or something, because this is a new computer in a new apartment that has never had War3 installed on it.

We've recently banned over 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II accounts that were found to be violating the Battle.net Terms of Use. If this is a first offense, the CD key associated with the banned account will be suspended for 30 days, while repeat offenders will see their keys banned permanently. All account ban decisions are final.

We would like all players to remember that abuse of unintended mechanics and/or use of third party programs is a violation of the agreement made when signing on to Battle.net, and can subject your account to disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban of its access to the service. These types of activities can severely impact the stability of our servers, and we'll continue to aggressively monitor Battle.net in order to protect the service and its players from the harmful effects of cheating.

Many account closures come as the direct result of tips emailed to our hacks team by legitimate Battle.net users. If you come across a hack, find a site responsible for distributing hacks, or have a replay of a newly available hack, please report this to our hacks team at hacks@blizzard.com or through our Hacks Report Form at http://us.blizzard.com/support/article. ... =hacksform

As always, thank you for your continued support, and we'll see you on Battle.net!


Also I guess this was last month so if it was your first offense or w/e the ban should be lifted in 7 days.
