refresh starcraft

Sometimes when you create a game on StarCraft, a few people will join… but you want to wait a little bit longer for more people to play. After a while, you realize that nobody else is joining your game, so what do you do? You probably say remake, or rm, and you cancel the game that you just made so that you can create the same thing again. However, you don’t have to do that!

One way to get more people to join your game if you want a full house is to just close all the open slots, and then reopen the slots again. This is called refreshing your game.

Another way to refresh your game, is to just tell someone in your game to leave and come back. You can tell him/her to rejoin or rj. This method of refreshing is faster and better if there are a lot of empty slots and you don’t feel like opening/closing them all.

You know the game list on Battle.net is always updating. It’s showing the newest games that were just created, which will keep on pushing your game to the back of the list. By refreshing your game, it will help bring your game up to the front of the list so more people will see it again, thus you’ll get more people to join.

These 2 methods of refreshing work on Battle.net, and also in Local Area Network mode. Next time you are waiting for more people to join your StarCraft game, try refreshing it!

  • Hey, I just wanted to let you know, that another alternative for refreshing your game instead of remaking is to download Oblivion. It’s a multi-hack pack that comes with a nifty feature which refreshes your game and puts it on top of the list.

    Yeah, please don’t close all the slots when you can just click your name and refresh game. All the noobs are doing this now and so whenever I click on a game, it says “the game host has closed all available slots” and then they end up pissing me off and taking longer for the game to get started. In some cases this causes the game to not start at all.

    I kind of believe that you are a troll, spreading this message across the whole of bnet even though it doesn’t work. If so… good job. Wtf would a rejoin do for refreshing a game? What would closing all the slots?

  • @anonymous: I know from experience, when playing through LAN, that having someone rejoin or closing all the slots DOES refresh the game and makes it show up again for everyone to join.
