1.20.8

Greetings Cerebrates, Commanders, and Executors,

1.20.8 has arrived. This patch was focused on dynamic turn rate and updated friend commands.

Specific Changes & Improvements
  • Matchmaking games now have dynamic turn rate reduction if the client determines high latency. The turn rate will start with 16 and scale down appropriately. We expect this to make a positive impact on latency for matchmaking, and we are very excited to be rolling it out.
  • /friends commands have been updated
  • /f l (or list) Shows all Brood War friends plus all Blizzard friends who are currently in SCR
    /f la (or list all) Shows all friends (BW + Blizzard, regardless of whether they are in SCR or not)
    /f lb (or listBlizzard) Shows all Blizzard friends (no Brood War friends) regardless of whether they are in SCR or not
    /f lo (or listOnline) Shows all friends (BW + Blizzard who are in SCR) who are currently online
  • Updated the SD option for bilinear to be a slider. Sliding to the left increases sharpness, sliding to the right increases the intensity of the filter.
  • Slightly reduced the size of the Replay UI center console

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where users would sometimes see a blank page on the post matchmaking toast screen.
  • Portraits in chat now update immediately when changed for friends and non-friend users

AWESOMENESS! Thanks Dev TEAM! :D
just something to note, when the update rolled out it didnt notify me or force me to update. i was already in game and it let me queue for more games, which resulted in my opponents immediately being dropped due to version mismatch.

  • That is beautifull !!! will this work on private/custom games also? meaning we will be able to change Turn Rate also for private games?, or is it dont "INSIDE" the game automaticaly. Also we will be able to check what turn rate the "dinamic turn rate" system choosed at the end? where?

  • this is also cool, personaly i have seen that the Replay mode seems a little incomplete, could you add a way to "minimize" the panels?, like right click them?, this is diferent than "deactivating them"

    Also please make it so we can right click a player name and see the FPV, i was very surprissed this was not released...

    Also please add info about workers:

  • Number of workers alive
  • Number of workers moving/repairing
  • Number of workers doing nothing
  • Make this by giving us a "worker" produciton panel portrait that does not move with the 3 numbers explained above,

    Also i think that a Atack Unit panel is very important, just the number of units being build.

    Thanks keep up the good work
    Thank you devs!!! You guys rock, don't let all the chatter on here get to you ever!
    For me this new update just broke the multiplayer. I just get dropped/desynced at every game start after this update.
    edit: Matt Sherman it is not a good idea to allow people with different patch entering the battle.net... The blizzard app/updater does not force people to update!
    The filter is great! It really seems like the real deal with +1 filter slide!

    The replay viewer size decrease is very welcomed too! :) but pleaaase give us back the unit portraits in replay mode!! I love to watch them there, because we have no time to check them while playing.

    Luckily I didnt really have latency-lagg problems on EU server, so I cant comment on the turn rate, but it will definetly help out a lots of dudes playing globally, which is awesome!

    Cant wait for a big ladder update with leagues and stuff (D-,D,D+...A-,A,A+ etc.)

    Imho the matchmaking is rock solid, because I stuck between 1450-1500 MMR, which is only a 50 difference. I kill everyone under 1450 but everyone over 1500 tends to kill me, but it just proves that the matchmaking works well. So I think its time to revamp the whole thing into leagues and leave the "frontier league" period

    :)

    Keep up the good work, we count on you! I really want to dive in this game again after 10 long absent years! woohoo
    Thanks much, hope this dynamic turn rate works as advertised.
    NO FIX FOR THE MISSING CHAT BUG -___________________- please guys, that is really annoying..
    Awesomeness overload!! I'm getting more and more excited each update now.
    Why do I have to come here to check the patch notes? Why doesn't the "patch notes" button in the blizzard launcher work?

    Also, Since turn rate now appears to be dynamic, It is crucial that players know what turn rate they are playing on. Some sort of indication is required or I can foresee players getting quite upset over this.

    As always, keep up the great work guys.
    Thanks for the update.

    I will test the new dynamic TR to see how it works.
    The bilinear filter slider is an improvement but u could have implemented a better image filter without too much effort.
    The best patch so far <3
    THIS IS FREAKIN AMAZING! Thank you team for all your brilliant work. We know it all can't be done at once. Appreciate the commitment fully.
    any of you having a long delay in the lobby now ? it doesnt even show the races screen,just jump into the game.
    hey, awesome work on the filter thanks a lot seriusly, but idk why it takes forever to load everything http://prntscr.com/gzkss6
    i take back what i say from the filter, sry but it looks all blurry
    Excelent update one of the best one yet!!!

    Please add more things to the replay mode and make things able to hide with one click.

    Give us the Fast One Click Replay Button at the End Game Screen so we can create a fast replay room with the last game played. Also please give us a way to save Replays, copy them with a diferent name tag date etc..

    And could you please make improvements to the Creation Mode?, by giving us a way to save favorite configurations etc, so then we can one click choose a saved template name and every option is loaded.

    Also please bring back observers chat if HOST allows it, chatting with people that observe is something really coll that people is missing all over, they just dont make threads about it.
