    First after reading all these posts and also going through multiple reinstalls to finally get the game to open with the 1.22a patch... I try to connect on the US west Server (as I am a Californian) and it gives me this error

    "Unable to connect to Battle.net
    You may be trying to connect ao an Invalid Battle.net server. If you are using a modem, you may need to manually connect to the internet before connecting to Battle.net."

    Obviously I'm connected to the internet if i'm on here... so wut gives? what's the next fix I have to do to connect?

    You could be temporarily restricted from the realm. What happens if you try connecting to the other realms (Azeroth/Kalimdor/Northrend)?

    To confirm if you are restricted, load up Application -> Utilities -> Terminal
    At the prompt enter "telnet uswest.battle.net 6112" and hit return
    If it shows "Escape character is '^]'.", type a 'c' and press return
    It should show your IP address and disconnect you from the server
    If it says "Connection refused", you have been restricted

    If you do not get that response, you more than likely are temporarily restricted from the realm. Have a read through these list of possible causes and see if any apply to you

    I doubt it's a restriction... because I have the same WCIII keys on via Bootcamp and it runs fine on my Windows side, I just can't seem to connect on my Mac.
