Geneon Posted February 22, 2013 Report Share Posted February 22, 2013 This recent Starcraft patch is the biggest one yet and I've noticed that a lot of people have been lagging in-game myself included. I did a few digging and found a thread about the issue. I must apologize but I'm on my phone and cant find the link since I originally found it on my desktop. If you're experiencing the lag it may be because of how the launcher for this patch worked. Even though you completed the main download that had focused on the new interface, there are additional content that is for the upcoming HOTS that doesn't show after completion of the download on the launcher. To view this extra download, open up starcraft launcher. On the upper left hand corner you should see a tab about downloads. After clicking, you should see something like "download connection." A pop up should show your download speed, upload speed, seeding etc. Most importantly it shows how much of the total download you completed. The launcher only shows about 9.5 gigs whereas the entire download is actually 14 gigs. Normally, when you press the play button, all downloads stop. But (I'm assuming) blizzard messed up a bit on this one and the launcher continues to download despite pressing the play button causing the unwanted lag in-game. Monitor the download and be sure that the 14g completes fully. Hopefully this helps anyone who are having some lag issues. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
