Call to Action: August 15 Balance Testing

Call to Action: August 15 Balance Testing

We’ve just published a new Balance Test Map to the StarCraft II Custom Games list entitled "Bel’Shir Vestige LE (2.0.10 Balance v1.0)." This time, we’re testing balance changes for Armory upgrades, the Overseer, and the Viper in Heart of the Swarm. Our plan is to first consider the changes below, and potentially test additional changes after reviewing your feedback. Here’s the situation:



  • Vehicle and Ship Weapon upgrades have been combined into just one upgrade.



  • The Pneumatized Carapace upgrade now increases Overseer movement speed from 1.88 to 3.375 (previously 1.88 to 2.75.)


  • Starting energy increased to 200.

If you’re interested in the reasoning behind these changes, you can check out this forum thread written by David Kim and the StarCraft II Balance Team. Feedback based on play testing is the most helpful information you can share with us, and we kindly ask that you take your time to play plenty of games on the balance test map before offering your thoughts on the changes above.

As always, thank you for your continued feedback and support. We’d like to restate that we’re trying out the changes listed above to see how they affect current gameplay and none of these changes are final. Once you feel you’ve had enough time to test thoroughly, we welcome you to join us in this discussion thread.
