Thank you for your feedback everyone.

We just wanted to let you know that we’ve started putting together a balance test map and a balance test extension mod for the Hellion/Hellbat change.

The exact changes for this test map are:
- Removed Transformation Servos upgrade
- Changed Hellion/Hellbat transform requirement to Armory


Please keep in mind these changes are not final, and we may test different and/or additional changes as needed during this testing phase. We’ll let you guys know once again when the map is published. Thank you, and we'll be looking forward to further feedback after you've played with the changes.

+1, will be looking forward to seeing this change tested.

BTW, the development team should really try to provide us balance status updates on a more consistent basis. Perhaps something like the first Tuesday of every month, just a quick thread to discuss your thoughts and what you may or may not look to be doing would go a long way with the community.

Fantastic. I can't wait to see what everyone does with Transformation Servos now that they don't have a 150m 150g 110 second price tag on them that scares everyone except newbs like me away. :D

I agree with Protostitute, Dayvie. That would be wonderful if you could do that.

You know I was just about to check that? At least I got the resource price right, lol. I miss the good ol' days when I could memorize stuff like that at a glance.

I couldn't agree enough. People are way less likely to be upset over balance issues if we at least get more feedback from Blizzard, even if the feedback is "We're going to buff protoss and remove terran from the game." It's a lot more satisfying than being completely in the dark.

If anyone remembers the Reddit AMA, David Kim answered very few questions and gave a lot of nebulous answers with no clear meaning, and did not address the most important concerns with HotS balance and design other than saying "we don't believe in making significant changes until LotV" (something like that). Honestly, even if it went as !@#$ty as that, a monthly status update would be nice. Blizz could learn a lot from the way Riot is very communicative with their community.

Dear Dayvie and Blues,

Thank you so much for doing a test map following the feedback of the balance update status.

I am looking forward to taking part in the test map, as well as providing feedback.

Please consider the other unused upgrades Terran has in the dark, as it can have potential to give terran an edge if it was adjusted or altered to use, preferably neosteel.

If the Terran keeps the 8 Hellions alive it will be pretty tough to deal with as a Zerg.
