Let's see how many weeks will pass before bliz says that they still don't have a fix and to wait longer
Well, add me to the list..... Hopefully numbers speak.

I played my 5 1v1 placement matches, and in 5 out of 5 of those matches I was anywhere from 12 seconds to 20 seconds behind.. The other person was around 80 minerals (or 1 worker and 30 minerals) ahead. I won 4 out of 5 matches, and the 1 that I lost I could have won had I had that 15 seconds...

2010 13' Macbook Pro 2.4 GHz Dual Core Processor
4GB DDR3 Memory
NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB
OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion

My graphics settlings are on low to medium
I have a fan control program and my fan is running at its highest setting

I really hope this gets fixed.

I just got some advice from reddit: If you've got ASUS Gamer OSD, uninstall it. Fixed the problem perfectly for me!

Dear Bliz,

Please fix this bug before the season ends. Is it too much to ask to shift some of your team over to fixing such a game breaking issue for players affected by the bug so that they can play at least their placement matches for the season before it actually ends without being forced into an auto loss if the opponent decides to 1 base all in with a 1 drone 12-20 second head start?

It's been 3 months+ now, how can you allow such a problem to exist for almost an entire season?
if anything its caused me to play better and faster...however its happening to me as well, i realize blizz will not respond, just wanted to add to the ever growing number of people who have this problem so hopefully they will fix it
Wow didn't realize it was such a huge problem. Bump this because this is happening to me as well and it's pretty dumb for something like this to go on for months with no fix
Its complete bul.l.sh.i.t that they just ignore us on this... you need to address the community. It is making me have to quit playing sc as a high masters because practicing is impossible and the game that I love is not desireable... DEO SOMETHING TALK TO US DAM>NIT
Please fix this, or let us know some work around so I (we) won't be delayed 12 seconds or so at the start of every match. It's been 4 months now!
I feel like this will never get fixed

Thanks Burnslough. This worked for me. After a month of two of this crap it is so nice to find a fix that worked. I didn't even know I had ASUS Gamer OSD =.=

hahah thanks again!
So what do you do if you don't have ASUS Gamer OSD? I guess nothing cause Bliz still hasn't even released any sort of update
No fix yet, BUT: you can practice with a fair start by doing some of the mele customs,
like KOTH obs games, there is a UMS gamestart delay that WILL line up all players
regardless of lag.

Also some other mele style games like monobattles have UMS delays while you
pick options so you will all start at same time....

too bad theres only a few koth / obs
Finally had this issue fix itself by upgrading from windows xp to windows 7.
I am having this same glitch. Ive checked every video and sound setting to try and speed up the game to no avail. The glitch occurs during the load screen and last exactly 10 seconds, thats how I know its not a hardware performance issue. Let me know if you hear anything, thanks
I also have Asus Gamer OSD

Hey all -

We apologize for the inconvenience on this and are aware that it is causing major issues for those dealing with the problem. We are heavily testing the matter and have yet to find a complete solution. It appears that the problem is unique to the US environment and will keep you posted on additional progress we make.

Thanks for your patience.


I play on SEA (i'm Australian) and i start 0:04 every game, opponents 1st SCV is alrdy 50% done and he's returning his 1st load of minerals, and mine are only moving out.

Never used to have this problem.
Would be a nice christmas gift to fix this bug....
Still lagging yay
Awesome, Season 5 now locked, still no fix in sight, not even an update. Should we just assume that this bug will exist until HotS releases? A blue response would be nice
