Stuck on authentication screen (EDIT: SOLVED!)

hi! I just made a free starter account for starcraft 2, and I’m stuck on the authentication screen after starting up the game.

I’ve tried EVERY step in the troubleshooting guide, but no success. updating my computer, scanning & repairing the game files & even tried to remove every trace of / blizzard programs & folders from my computer and still get stuck on the authentication screen after the game asks me to create a character profile.

I’m running it on Mac OS high Sierra version 10.13.6

any help would be greatly appreciated!

edit: SOLVED by changing regions to US & creating a profile, then changing back to EU. for anyone that might be helped by it!
