    This seems to be quite a common problem but I can't seem to find a fix for it online.

    The launcher will not close for love nor money. I think this is the main reason I am unable to shut down my rMBP.

    Even if I select force close, nothing.

    It doesn't look like Blizzard are going to be fixing this any time soon so is there a more reliable way of force closing a program?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use the kill command in the terminal (you'll need the PID, so use top to find that), or from the apple menu, you can initiate the force quit
