    The artificial latency on all Battle.net realms has been reduced from 250ms to 100ms.

    This means that you will experience less of a delay when playing online. This is effective in ladder matches as well as custom maps.

    There were some internal changes to the game recently (discovered by @MindWorX) which led us to believe Blizzard was intending to reduce the delay, and today they did.

    Enjoy (thanks to @brad_c6).

    It's a joke. Some data was not staying where it should.

    That should be he same. Those emulate a LAN environment and thus use LAN settings, which is 100 ms.
