    So i got this new game dota 2 last night.

    And my god it is laggy. I dont mean fps lag, or internet lag. Its just that everything takes at least 1 second do to.

    Like this for everyone? Cant believe they actually made a game this laggy considering lag free options.

    Everything works fine for me, but complaints like yours aren't rare.
    What exactly do you mean? Controls aren't responsive enough or what?

    Everything works fine. except that in a certain other game when i click to attack my character just picks up his bow and attacks when animation is done. Here, he waits 1 second.

    Guess responsiveness is the way to describe it yea

    Are you playing on servers in your region? For me Dota 2 has better responsiveness than hon.

    Play with server for your region and there will be no delay ...

    I'm from SEA and the servers were horrible last week. Around 1.5 secs of constant delay. But it's fine now. Anyways, my advice to you is to chill at the moment and find other player from your region with the same problem.

    For the last 2 days im playing totally lag free. Bet its your GPU, since the game is heavy, and since I have 2 computers, the one being a weakling, I encounter the same shit. Playing Dota 2 on my 7900GS and my dual 5850 makes a vast difference, its like playing another game.

    Can't say anything specific, but maybe attack animation you see is purely client-sided, but real attack is not. Maybe that is indeed a problem with delay.

    Anyways, sometime people talk of things like this one. If Valve can, they will fix this eventually (if that's something they have something to do with, ofc) since it's one of the most important aspects of DotA, after all...

    I'm facing a lot of delay lately because the nonexistance of servers close to my region. Unfortunatly there is nothing we can do.
    Just hope they start a South America server soon...

    Thanks for all the help.

    Will try to lower settings even more. I do have a problem with settings being back to default every time i start the game though, so im not sure if things have really changed...

    you have to lower the resultion i guess.. i got my key yesterday and struggled ALOT with making it run smooth. im currently on a resultion that is too low for what my computer should be able to handle so that i dont lag/delay. + graphics decreased alot... kinda takes out the joy of the game for me

    I have a quite good connection, more than enough to handle it. If the game is made for people with even better connection than me, theyll miss alot of customers.

    Anyway, i tried dropping the resolution even more and i think i got some results. Will try it out later. Thanks guys
