Patch 1.4.2 has gone live. It looks identical to the PTR version. There's also some map pool changes, although that's probably a seasonal difference.


StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty - Patch 1.4.2 November 8
Version 1.4.2.20141

General

“Alert Fade” under Sound Options has been renamed to Game Volume During Alerts. Its tooltips have also been changed for clarification.
The fade-in for game sound during alerts changed from .5 seconds to 2 seconds.
Play-Time Schedule under Parental Controls now applies World of Warcraft settings to StarCraft II

Bug Fixes

Fixed a truncation on specific resolution if the current and maximum supplies are 3 digits.
Fixed an issue which prevented footprints from being edited in the Footprint Editor.
Fixed an issue that caused the game to have missing icons and images on low end graphics cards.

Protoss buff for the win! :D ^.^


CHEAPER UPGRADES!!!! PROTOSS IS GONNA BE OP NOW! :D haha.

If you think about it... decreased the cost fro all those upgrades by 100 minerals is an INCREDIBLE buff... yeah...

There's a new portrait called "Starcraft Master" with no image and it's locked with no text displayed for how to get it...

Would be cool if it was awarded every month to the current GSL champion.

Seems to me this will not be the last patch buffing the Protoss.
Once the other races' players learned to counter the (khe khe) only viable protoss strat, there's less "protoss are so OP" TTing.

So much protoss love on this forum.

As a random player, I'm ok with the forge boost but I feel like the emp radius reduction was a bit unjustified. No way I'll ever do the good old late game mass marauders/vikings now. I already felt like the protoss death ball was a too strong against that build but now it's gonna be slightly harder. I'll be sticking to 1/1/1 which is more forgiving as far as emp goes

The deathball has been dead for months. :P

From that graph I can only conclude Terran was, is, and will always be OP.

Yay Protoss buff

It may appear so, but, that can't be. There must be hidden nerfs that aren't noted in the patch notes.

Blizzard can't JUST give the Protoss an overall buff. It's unconstitutional.

-- Also, I find it hilarious that the best balance of win rates was one year ago. Since then it's mostly gotten worse.

that graph doesn't explain anything...

too many confounding variables

That graph, of course not. It's only 25000 games. That's not that many. But, similiar results, AFAIK, are shown on a wider scale as well, unless that's changed since some time ago.

Well 25.000 games divided by all the months. The last staples are just 810 games.

The data from that chart is taken from the TLPD so it's basically all the tournaments and therefore doesn't include matchmaking fixing. It shows the winrates at the absolute highest levels.
