Upon HotS release I played mostly 1x1 ranked games... at some point 1x1 got 'unavailable' for me. I resolved that by hitting 'back' button to escape matchmaking screen and coming back.

But in 1-2 weeks later the same happened and i can't escape this limitation anymore: whatever i did I was not able to start any 1x1 match.

Ok, I played some 2x2 games... few weeks later I was forced to play 3x3 or 4x4... or, i thought I understood the rules: you should play EACH match type...

But now, I have played 1x1, 2x2, 3x3.. and available are 2x2 and 4x4...

Why only certain types of games are available?

What is the rule here?

The missing game types have been confirmed as a bug by Blizzard on reddit. I guess it should be fixed soon. Though, for me, this only happened temporarily as you did - never permanently. Maybe try logging into a different server and back? – tenfour May 16 '13 at 22:50
@tenfour I can confirm you tenfour. Its a bug. It has nothing to do with rules or anything. Its a simple but. You can resolve it by logging in and out. – AtlasEU May 17 '13 at 8:16

Like stated by tenfour, this is a know bug. Follow this link for an official blue post on solutions:


  • 1) Reset your network.
  • 2) Flush the DNS cache.
  • 3) Delete the Variables.txt file from C:\Users\\Documents\StarCraft II
  • 4) Delete the cache.

As for myself, I simply log out and log-in again.
