The Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty beta was updated with patch # 6 which fixes several bugs, and issues race balance by increasing and decreasing build times and costs of certain units and buildings.
The Roach seems to have proven too hard to kill and its regeneration while burrowed got nerfed by half.
I never had any problems with it, but you don't see so much rach micro in the copper league
That is some HARSH nerfs on Zerg. However, making Protoss units "light" armour helps a bit.
Yeah, good mirco players could keep them alive very easily.
But at least EMP got nerfs. Thank goodness.
Blizzard's been busy as always
A lot of balance changes... I'm actually pretty keen to try itout.
Can't go wrong with HP decrease for SCV's, the overpowered things
Well, only if you count all except the roach nerf.. They could have gone down in steps. Not 50% cut! :(
In beta, the nerfs are more radical than what they would do after the release.
Woo, heavy on the nerfs o,O
Indeed. Not much, if any, buffs in this patch.
They HALVED the roach regen?!
Seems only while burrowed, which should be fine in my opinion.
Halving the regen of burrowed Roaches was probably necessary, smaller changes would probably not make enough difference :/
Oooh, pretty long patch notes :)
Long notes, I assume to maybe have games last a little longer, with increases to build times for units such as dark templar (via the dark shring build time ofcourse) etc...
+5 seconds to a marine? what were they smoking!? So what are we meant to do against zergling rushes now our SCVs are weaker and we can't get marines out... jesus
Traditional Zerglign rush is getting viable again! Wee!!!
I agree. It increases the viability of early rushes, as you need to work harder on defense and not just think of your economy the first minute :)
SCV HP down from 60 to 45? Never expected that.
Hmm.. now that I think of it.. I was hoping to try out ghost's emp against the protoss for soem time - I've been palying against zerg all the time... and now it is nerfed =(
I like most, if not all of the changes! :) A good job by Blizzard.
I really wish I could be a part of this beta =(
