Starcraft II Crashing to Desktop Upon Launch (MAC)

October 8, 2012

Rocking Mountain Lion, my Starcraft II install was crashing to desktop after I launched the game and it got past the title screen. I tried repairing the install to no avail.  Finally got it to work with the following (deleting the stored crap).

  • Head to Users/Shared/ in Finder (NOT your personal folder, the USERS/ folder, you can find it on the Macintosh HD)
  • Delete the entire Battle.net folder
  • Delete the entire Blizzard folder
  • Restart the game
