How to Fix Stuck on Starting the Battle.net Desktop App
To fix stuck on starting the Battle.net desktop app, you have to continue offline, open a game and sign into it.
You can also change your region, for instance, you can switch from Asia to America on the login screen and it can be done by clicking the gear icon.
Solution 1: Continue offline and launch a game
- Wait until it gives you the “Could not log in to the Blizzard app” error.
- Choose “Continue Offline”.
- Try launching a game such as Overwatch 2, Hearthstone, etc.
- When opened, log in to the game with your Battle.net account.
- Close Battle.net, open it again and log in normally.
Note: You can also use the app in the offline mode and it can be done by clicking on the gear icon and then “Continue Without Logging In”.
Editor’s note: When your Battle.net log in times out, you’ll get two options including retry or continue offline.
If you select “Retry”, it will restrict you from log in and the same error message will be shown again.
Alternatively, if you choose “Continue Offline”, you can use the Battle.net app where you will be able to launch a game.
In offline mode, when you launch a game such as Overwatch 2, you’ll be taken to log in with your Battle.net account.
After logging in, the game will work in online mode and it will fix the Battle.net log in issue.
Solution 2: Change your region
- Select the gear icon from the Battle.net loading screen.
- Under “Login Region”, switch your region.
- Wait for a few seconds.
- Now, try to log in again to your Battle.net account.
Editor’s note: You can fix a lot of battle.net login issues by changing regions.
For instance, if you have selected “Asia”, try moving to “Americas” and wait for a few seconds.
After waiting for a few seconds, it will show you the login button and social icons.
You have to go back to your original region before launching a game.
