they already did
Are they just adjusting league percentages? Are they fixing any of the issues that brought the ladder to the point it is in now?

What are the new target league %'s?


Bliz never mentioned that they were going to change the percentages, so I suspect they are the same as they originally intended (as set when Hots came out).
erm how long did this take? i remember the ladder still being broken in November.

Can someone explain to me why Blizzard are so lazy.

They make an unbelievable amount of money but it takes them years to fix/add things to their games.

3 months to fix ladder
3 years for hots (seriously, it takes 3 years to make an expansion?)
10 months with no content at the end of Cataclysm
another 3 years for lotv
the end of Wrath of the Lich king
still no new content in WoW, siege was released in September, i mean come on it can't take that long to make a raid
new models are taking forever
2 years for Diablo expansion
an eternity to make Starcraft 2
an eternity to make Diablo 3
wheres warcraft 4?
an expansion for wow that adds nothing to the story and it's just a remake of Outlands
where is the nerf of Protoss?

They haven't said specifically. If tomorrow is a maintenance-style day (where multiple games/regions are worked on), who knows where in the schedule it will be.

What are the new target league %'s?

So far there's been no mention by Bliz that they are changing the intended target percentages that were set when Hots came out: 8, 20, 32, 20,18, 2.

There will be a placement match to play?

The wording Bliz used was that it is not a placement match like what we see at the start of a season. But instead it's simply that after the 1st regular match you play in 2.1, the system will move you to a more appropriate league.

What happens to starter edition free all race and arcade?

01/18/2014 10:49 PMPosted by OneTwo
Will this patch make all 3 races available for Starter Edition as previously mentioned or is this no longer the case?

The Arcade has been officially confirmed here on Battlenet as F2P. The availability of the 3 races was mentioned but it's not officially confirmed here on battlenet.

and many other features.

Curious, but trying not to wonder about it too much.

I added a feature list to my "What We Know" thread:

Will you be able to listen to the Remastered soundtrack while playing the Campaign? If so, that would totally make me play the WoL campaign over again!

According to the Preview blog, no, unfortunately :(

Is this going to affect the way MMR is currently functioning?

Not that we know of. The most Bliz has said is that they are currently analyzing the decay mechanism.

01/19/2014 11:13 AMPosted by Sorrow
So even if the league distribution is changed, the MMR will continue to cause the same pairings we've been receiving.

It's possible the common issue of large skill disparities in MU's won't change in 2.1. The re-distribution's only effect will be the league badge in your profile; you won't actually change position on the ladder (which your MMR dictates). Now, I could be wrong about this. For all we know they did more than move the league boundaries. They could have made changes to the MU algorithms as well. We just have to wait and see.

There's no mention by Bliz that there's any changes to MMR or MMR decay are included in 2.1, only distribution changes.


Really wish they had addressed these things, but it's okay, I guess.

Good news is that they've acknowledged the feedback and are investigating.



Correct. MMR decay has been in full effect the whole time.

There's no mention by Bliz that there's any changes to MMR or MMR decay are included in 2.1, only distribution changes.


Than why do I see people talking about it.

Many people have had may misconceptions about this patch for some reason. Rumors popped up all over the place. That's how my "What We Know" thread was born!

As I understand the news:

- MMR decay won`t be fixed
- DEMOTION during the season won`t be reintroduced

= nothing essential will be changed and patch 2.1 will be more cosmetics than anything else...

Blizzard has never stated that anything is broken about MMR decay, so nothing in 2.1 for it. Blizzard has never stated that they would be doing anything about mid-season demotion locks, so nothing in 2.1 for it.

where is the nerf of Protoss?

Bliz stated it would not be part of the patch. If any balance changes are coming, they would be after 2.1 is released. As of right now, they are only monitoring data and feedback on the balance concerns.

Kaivax, Thanks for the update - much appreciation for your continued communication with us! Please keep up the amazing work!

And, as always, this!
Will the patch be implemented in midnight or in the middle of the day tomorrow?
Well I hope everyone enjoys custom decals for the short amount of time they'll be in the game; expect to see mass genitalia shortly after patch release used by all of your favorite 14 year old ladder players.
