    Just installed TFT on my new 2.53 13" MBP. Single player seems to work, but when I click B.net, it says "downloading updates" and freezes shortly afterwards.

    I tried downloading the latest install file from battle.net, and applying patches manually, but I still get this error. Anyone know how to solve this?

    Yep; I tried downloading the latest version now just to be safe, still the same problem.

    You need to completely uninstall DivX. For what ever reason, War 3 and DivX do not play nice.

    After uninstalling Divx, I was able to update to 1.23, but now I'm getting stuck (frozen) at "initiating connection to battle.net"...
