How do I change the game speed during a match in Starcraft 2 (SC2)?

I was in a game the other day and I saw

"<Player> has voted to increase the game speed (fast)"
"<Player> has voted to increase the game speed (faster)"

I don’t remember the player’s name, but it was show in place of <Player>.

    I’m still in “beginner” mode, too, so I was a bit surprised to see this.

    When I look at my hotkeys, I see entries for Increase Game Speed and Decrease Game Speed but there’s no keys bound to them.

    Does anyone know how to change the game speed during a SP/MP match?

    This can only be done in practice league. To do it, hit f10 –> options –> Gameplay, then slide the “game speed” slider to the desired speed.

    You may also get a message saying “XXX is slowing down the game…” in a dialog box, which has to be closed by hand. This can happen even in league games – it is simply (a very poorly thought-out message) trying to explain why any perceived lag is occuring.

    As you mentioned, you were in the practice league still. There is no way to change the game speed of a ranked ladder match or placement match.

    I’ll try to look into how you can do it while in practice league, but it will be made a tad more difficult by me not being in it.

    This can only be done in a Custom/Hosted game. The MAP doesn’t need to be custom, and probably wasn’t, but you can’t adjust the game speed in a ranked match.

    I have been playing through the practice league and have not been able to recreate it. I have seen the message about the game speed changing but I have never seen it be anything other than normal so the message could be just a bug when people do vote.

    I have asked at the start of almost every game (chat to all) and have yet to find anyone that knows how to do it at least in the practice league.

    UPDATE: Played a 2v2 yesterday and the message come up saying my partner was changing the game speed but nothing changed. I ask him what he did to cause the message and he said he hadn’t done anything. Maybe it is just a bug in the practice league.

    I have a hunch its available through a chat command like replying to messages. However, I can’t find a list of battle.net chat commands that has been updated since Starcraft 2. I wounder how I’ll solve that problem.

    Since chat commands have been 90% removed between SC1 and 2, they’re probably not the way this was done. Sorry for the incorrect answer.
