Unable to go into training mode, perpetual matchmaking

★★★★ Novice

 I can't get into training to play the game. It's stuck "matchmaking" for hours. I re-installed, turned off fire wall, restarted my computer, ran as administrator, fixed firewall settings to allow public and private connections, repaired the game, changed the language, pretty much everything I can think of. I just want to go through training so I can actually play this game.

The fix for this is to choose another data center and then start Matchmaking.

 

I chose New York and I was connected right away.

 

To choose a new Data center to connect to, 

 

1. Launch the game and do nothing on the Main screen where you can click to continue.

2. Wait for approximately 40 seconds

3. Hit escape to bring up the Exit option

4. Hit escape again to close the menu

5. Note that a "Data Center" Menu item is now visible

6. Click the Data Center menu item

7. Double-click a data center other than the one chose for you. (Try new York)

8. Click "continue"

9. Once the full game is loaded, click Ready

 

You should load straight in.

 

Once you finish the training, you'll want to restart the game so that it chooses the data center with the lowest ping.

It's just the Training that seems to have an issue. Once you've completed that you should have no issues with games in your region.

 

I would assume that something is wrong in the training validation since it does not require any client server exchange since all content is local.

Cheers!

You sir, did what no one else could do. You deserve all of the karma. After talking with 3 techs, endless posts on reddit and being threatened to be banned on reddit you came through. My hat is off to you kind sir.
