These crashes are both in SuperShieldHookCpy32 dll, which is not part of SCR. A bit of Googling looks like it might be part of the PC Pit Stop/PC Matic app. You could try disabling this and launching SCR?

You need an HD license to play ranked mode. It’s probably unlikely that people are creating tons of HD accounts (because they’d need to be paying $15 each time) just to smurf. If they’re using the same battlenet account and creating new profiles, the new profile MMR will be based off the MMR of the…

Looks like there was a minor hiccup on a patch server this morning which temporarily reverted some folks to a previous patch, but it should be back to normal now.

We’ve been working towards this (in collaboration with the author of SCMDraft 2) for the last couple of years. SCMDraft 2 is a widely used and sup…

Because the poll was created fewer than 2 weeks before we released the patch. Our build was already in QA RC by that stage - adding new features is not an option at that point. There’s a whole bunch of investigative and design work that needs to be done before a feature is ready for release. Having…
