Thanks for the update Spyrian!
Time Warp energy cost increased from 75 to 100
The Time Warp change is fantastic, definitely a step in the right direction. I'm glad that it reduces the strength of 10 Gate openers against Reaper/Reactor FE.
However, it may not be enough of a nerf to two base Blink Stalker All-Ins. After trying a few against Terran, one Time Warp thrown on the ramp was still incredibly powerful and immediately game ending.
Please consider reducing the sight radius of the Mothership Core. The Blink Stalker All-In has quite a lot of burst damage and relies on catching the Terran army out of position for a moment. Because of this, the build remains relatively unaffected.
Photon Overcharge duration decreased from 60 seconds to 50 seconds.
PvT did not feel much different from before. The Photon Overcharge forced the Medivac to retreat, and I still had plenty of time to warp-in a round of units (Stalkers + 1 HT) for any future drop attempts.
Increasing the energy cost of Photon Overcharge from 100 to 125 would be a more meaningful change, since two bases could not be covered at the same time anymore.
I did not get to try Photon Overcharge in PvP or PvZ yet.
The Moebius Reactor upgrade has been removed from the Ghost Academy.
One player tried to do a quick Ghost Marine push against me. Surprisingly, it didn’t do much damage because he was cash-strapped for minerals on the one base.
There may be some new powerful 2 base all-ins that come from this change, but most of the concerns about Ghost rushing can definitely be put to rest. Terran does not have enough income off of 1 base to deal any significant damage.
Hydralisk cost decreased from 100/50 to 100/25.
This change is absolutely way too powerful in ZvP, I was able to overwhelm my opponent off of 3 bases with pure Roach Hydra. Refining the build and adding in Vipers would be brutal against Protoss, please do not
patch this into the game.
Doncroft made an excellent thread with alternative changes here:http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/11422312254
I did not get to try Hydralisks in ZvT or ZvZ yet.
Thank you for reading!
