Forced update whenever I launch the game

I tried watching an old game which required to download an older version. I thought that it would harmless.

The older version was so big that I cancelled the thing.

Now I am stuck with a constant update of 137MB everytime I launch the game.

I “scanned and repaired” the game which found nothing to repair.

I rebooted my computer.

It’s still here.

I have a weak download rate so it take forever to update and reinstalling (re downloading actually) will take even more forever.


Blizzard ignoring this problem like 2 weeks :slight_smile: they dont care trash company trash solutions :slight_smile:


Same problem here, I thought it was the windows 10 update that caused this problem with the security thing blocking everything its annoying,

Hi all,

Thanks for the reports!

Just to let you know we’re aware of this issue and working on a fix, though no details or ETA at the moment.

Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience for now!

you been know this for … how long has been going? ABOUT A MONTH. so i believe we can expect something more than “we’re aware of this” from a multibillion dollar company.

Is there a chance, that someone wanna do hide what has been downloaded to reverse it back? Like crypto miner? xD

Since that happened I am getting disconnects during draft mode games. Ip release works, but what is causing this issue. I didn’t have this problem before last patch of HOTS. I don’t play other Blizzard games so I can’t say if other games are impacted by it.
