The GSL had higher level competition than the BWC. Who won that?

I guess that's why he's "nerfing" the infestor.

that is not down at this moment.
But protoss players‘ performance in BWC did give them a reason to do something.

terrans seem to think so since mlg. They forget that terrans are the most medal winning race in any big tourny over last 2 years

well 3 top protoss winning first second and third place is probably a good reason to look at balance, but will it only be the fungle growth? it seems protoss is extremely strong at certain timings so what do you do? nerf protoss? buff terran? buff zerg? nerf zerg?

I am not saying so. Yes 1 tournament's result didn mean too much

Dustin emphasized he want to see how these players perform in BWC and balance the game(They already said they will not release new patch before bwc which means it will be coming after bwc). But now he must be impressed now: what? 1st,protoss,2nd,protoss,3rd,protoss .
So for the coming new patch, I think protoss maybe get nerfed

blizzard relies more on internal data than tournament results tbh, that is why they always does PTR's and test maps before releasing a balance patch. unlike most kids, they realize that the majority of tournament games are decided because 1 player simply played better than the other, or got "lucky" (based on build orders or what scouting info they were able to get) rather than an actual imbalance in the game. with that said, when you have 1 race dominating it usually means something is wrong, (>60% in a MU), but over the past few months we see zerg and protoss both doing quite well, and korean terrans doing okay, unfortunately only the best terrans in the world are remaining competitive. it was a while ago, but flash said that most korean pros feel that protoss is overpowered, zerg is strong, and terran is very weak. im not sure whether zerg or protoss is stronger, but i think its safe to say that terran is indeed very weak, atleast outside of korea.

EDIT: honestly i would like to see mothership immune to neural, a further nerf to archon toilet, and a VERY fast almost invisible projectile added to fungal, blizzard to relook at the ghost nerf on terran, and buffs to the raven (movement speed, reduction in seeker missile cost, something like that)
