StarCraft II Patch 1.3.0 Stirs Up Community
Early today, Blizzard released the patch notes for StarCraft II’s upcoming patch 1.3.0, which is currently in development and available for testing on the Public Test Region. Although this patch contains welcomed interface improvements and bug fixes, the balance adjustments have been met with controversy among the player base.
All three races have received some form of nerf, from an increase in stimpack research time, to the removal of the High Templar Khaydarin Amulet upgrade, to a decrease in Infestor Fungal Growth stun duration. The result? A trifecta of upset fans.
And in true StarCraft fan fashion, the forums are exploding with conflicting arguments and complaints. If there’s one thing you can count on from StarCraft fans, it’s to flare up in anger anytime their favorite race is nerfed–or another race receive buffs.
The full patch notes, head to over to battle.net.
Those who wish to participate in the PTR will be the first to test out these changes and provide concrete feedback to Blizzard in the Public Test forum, but for the time being, it is only available for those with the North American client. Further details on how to access the PTR can be found here.
