Well finally an EMP nerf. Guess it took the mass dying of the Protoss race in Korea for Blizzard to realise what we've been complaining about for a year. Don't really understand the changes to Protoss upgrades. Shields kind of makes sense but the others don't.

The StarCraft II Multiplayer Panel at Blizzcon talked about these changes, they summed it up starting at 4:54:00.

David Kim: "We're also looking at a more general Protoss buff so Protoss in general can be more competitive against the two other races. So on this side we want to try to decrease the upgrade costs, the forge upgrade costs, for the level 2 and level 3 and the sheilds upgrade in general to the Protoss get this general upgrade."

This patch screams " we broke protoss, and we're not sure how to fix them". At least thats my take on it.

Doesn't sound whiny. Just sounds like your experience of the matchup which is fair. Few people are equally skilled in all matchups.

i Think TvP will be better for me in HotS; battle helions are seriously going to help against dem charge zealots.. after even just one game on "HOTS custom" vs peanut i could really tell the difference (alhough i still lsot the game by far, at elsat that one battle where i'd usualyl get swallowed, i broke even instead)
