Ok here's the prob,

I really want to play on Battle.net. I have Warcraft III Reign of Chaos + (Expansion) Frozen Throne.

1: I open Frozen Throne and click connect to Battle.net and it tells me it is unable to connect and retry. I retried about fifty thousand times and still nothing.

2: I went to Battle.net forums to check it out and see if it had any answers for me there. I tried posting a question and it will not let me. It says: (copy paste)

Welcome to the Battle.net forums!
Blizzard provides the Battle.net Forums for its customers to chat, exchange ideas and strategies, and submit feedback. The Battle.net forums require a Battle.net forum account and a valid CD Key from a Blizzard game. You must follow the Forum Guidelines if you wish to continue to post on the Battle.net forums.

Logging Into the Battle.net Forums
Enter an account name and corresponding password from one of your Battle.net-ready Blizzard games. This is the same account information that you use to play the multiplayer portion of Blizzard's games over the Battle.net gaming service. (If you have not yet created a Battle.net gaming-service account, please do so from within a Battle.net-ready Blizzard game.)
*            *           *          *          *          *

How in the heck do I create an account there. There is no where to sign up. And I cannot find it within my Battle.net-ready Blizzard game???

I am so lost....

Any and all help in dummy form would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx,

;)Angie

I don't have WC3 loaded anymore, but it should be RIGHT there!

When you click on Battle.net in WC3, it should take you straight to the login/registration screen... just a sec...

Check here, and be sure to click on Next Page, as this in only the first of 6 pages.

BTW, that means you can still play on B.net if you used a legal CDkey on a burned copy of war3.
