    I recently got into dota 2 beta, and the first thing is the noticed its the annoying 1sec delay which makes the whole game kinda unplayable. I heard a while ago on a GLHF stream that the delay is intentional and its supposed to make wc3 players "get used" to faster steam engine, but its actually 10x worse then wc3. Anyway i know he fixed it by deleting a file from dota2 directory but i don't remember which one. Any help?

    Sounds too strange to be true.
    Check on which server you are playing.

    I didn't experience any delay so far. I think its your location.

    There's a thread on the beta forums about it isn't there? Yes there is a delay (not lag related) and I think they're working on it.

    try changing those cvar values to a higher one:

    go to console and type:

    rate 30000
    cl_updaterate 100
    cl_cmdrate 100
    cl_interp 0

    might help.. or not

    There is a little delay (like in Wc3, it's not worse - it actually is better).

    If you come from HoN you WILL notice a delay, since unit responses are instant there.

    I got used to it in 2 days. (And it is OBVIOUSLY not 0,2seconds - that would be 200ms+your ping)

    ermm. You said that because the distance of the dude and the server who asked is large, or general Asia servers are laggy ?

    There is no lag either. It just takes a while till the unit responses (25ms, afaik). That has nothing to do with lag.

    tried it now, doesntt work :(

    It is much worse, unless u play garena pub. For example, i can only dream orbwalking on dota 2. And it is like a 0.5 sec or worse with me having a 50 ping

    I get zero lag

    Also dont forget the game is in beta, there is a lot of optimisations and improvements to be done
