Change Region Without Relocalizer


Recommended Posts

Thanks to Sparkypop, we can now switch to different regions without using Relocalizer!


Your account can now connect to any region except China. =(


1. Open a text editor like Notepad or SimpleText (Mac).


2. Copy and paste the text below:




<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_SG_REGION" hostname="sg"

allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="enSG"/>

<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_US_REGION" hostname="us"

allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="enUS"/>

<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_EU_REGION" hostname="eu"

allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="enGB"/>

<region displayname="AUTHENTICATION_KR_REGION" hostname="kr"

allowedProductLocales="all" localesThatDefaultToThisRegion="koKR"/>




3. Click "Save As" and name it "regions.xml".


4. Move the regions.xml file to your StarCraft file, where your SC2.exe file is located in.


5. The "REGIONS" button is located at left side of the login screen, but make sure you click the Up Arrow image to the right of your account name/email address (This only applies if you have "remember me" checked).



Your character info is non-transferable.

You won't be able to communicate with friends on different regions (Not entirely sure about real ID).


This should save you some time from having to download a new Starcraft file specified for a region, as well as exiting & reopening StarCraft every time you relocalize. Enjoy!

Is this even legal by starcraft 2 standard?


Blizzard already enabled this region feature to the SEA client. They also recently gave region access to everyone (CN not included, sorry!), so this is pretty much their Global Play. If they allow third party programs like Relocalizers to be legal, then adding an additional text file, taken from their SEA client, won't make Blizzard call you out. Of course, they reserve the right to change what's legal or not.
