    AsyranChimp: hey you
    AsyranChimp: i got a question
    AsyranChimp: why is it that no agmes show up
    DarkBlade75: Yeah?
    AsyranChimp: no games show up *
    AsyranChimp: like its all black
    AsyranChimp: in any type of game
    AsyranChimp: iono why
    DarkBlade75: that's weird
    DarkBlade75: is it updated and everything?
    AsyranChimp: yeah
    AsyranChimp: sometimes theres games
    AsyranChimp: sometimes not
    DarkBlade75: maybe there's not a lot of people playing?
    AsyranChimp: its on all gateways
    AsyranChimp: any map type
    DarkBlade75: i dunno then
    AsyranChimp: and when i do get in
    AsyranChimp: it wont DL any maps
    AsyranChimp: its ****ing frustrating


    tl;dr is basically that no games show up most of the time on any game type or any gateway, and the few times they do, it wont DL the maps.

    It's similar to the old realm down messages on D2. Wait a few and they'll be back.

    And download is invisible now. Because of Blizzard.

    I've broke more house hold items with D2's Realm Down than anything, combined!

    Dl only shows up if the downloader is in a slot above the host.

    Which shows it's not deliberate. Blizzard just doesn't care about their Broodwar players anymore. And their behaviour shows it.

    The problem is almost all crippling.

    Blizzard is one part incompetence, three parts american. Which equates to near worthlessness.

    The game is 10 years old. They're working on a sequel. Get over it.

    Heaven forfend that they not jerk around their fanbase in the meantime.

    If people weren't complete idiots, I'd think that Sc2 would flop over this.
