Hi. I used search. Maybe I failed, but I didn't find anything.
First off, I want to say I've watched the last 3 TSL. I loved it. I loved the casting, I loved the community coming together, I loved the rush and excitement of a new sport emerging from the scene. It's fantastic, and I was looking forward to TSL4 the second TSL 3 was over ( I even advocated for TSL to be quarterly).
Since TSL 4 has begun, I haven't been able to watch one match yet. Not even ONE match. Why do you ask? The stream lags, every 2 seconds, and it's the pause for 5 seconds lag. The lag that makes you want to punch your computer because you blame it on that. The lag that makes you rage quit games. I hate it. I hate it. And I thought it was all me. Until I asked in chat. And again. And again. Aaaand again. People were experiencing this with me.
Now I know many of you aren't experiencing it obviously - but there are a few out there, enough for me to say hey, anyone experiencing lag every time I turn the stream on and a couple people immediately respond, yes not watchable.
I've tried every browser available, I've tried turning off everything on my network. I've used the shittiest resolution. Reset my router. Etc. I've NEVER had a problem streaming ANY other tournament. EVER. GSL/NASL/GSTL/IGN/ even the takeTV 30k+ views, not a problem. On the highest qualities.
So - what gives? Am I broken? Are all those other people broken? How many people are experiencing this? What's the deal man?! I love TSL and I wanna watch damn it!!
I got freeze-frame like every big engagement and every now and then otherwise.. sound continues but frame is frozen for like 5-10sec. I never have any streaming problems otherwise, TSL stream is worst so far in this regard :<
Noticed every time they stream, i have a very good computer and 100mb down, it's not me, it doesn't seem to be twitch, please fix, i generally turn it off whenever i see it's lagging, and i'm definitely not the only person who does as such. This is only hurting TL and TL's sponsors.

I guarantee i have a better computer in all respects than you and i lag every single time on the teamliquid stream, and never ever ever lag on ANY other stream, even at 1080p, 60fps, anything, please don't make random claims which don't make any sense and clearly show you have know idea what you're talking about. I can also guarantee that i have a better internet connection than you.
