Quiet Nerf to xp gains?

General Discussion
I don't usually play arcade. I do play a lot of quicks matches and I was under the impression that a gold metal gave 150xp. after the patch I did an arcade and my gold metal only gave 135. is this the norm? I didn't see anything about it in the patch notes. thank you.
it depends on the length of the game
Pretty sure it's been like that for awhile. Specifically because it's not quickplay or comp. I'll see if I can find it but I recall that being normal for a while now.

Edit: I think it was only applicable to Mystery Heroes.

Blizzard have been going back and forth, adding and removing a 10% penalty to all sources of XP for arcade modes since the game first came out.
thank you guys for the quick responses. I did a quick and the xp was what I expected. must be a mystery heroes/arcade thang. thanks all.
