Patch 1.22.2 notes

General Discussion
Thank you for this patch, and well done! I appreciate it a lot.

Now that I'm here, there's a bug I just remembered: In old graphics, if you turn off minimap terrain so that the map is black (tab), then as Protoss, the map has some metallic texture on it instead of being black. It seems like the map becomes transparent instead of black, because the texture looks like it's part of the Protoss user interface.

To recreate the error, just start any game as Protoss, switch to old graphics (F5), then turn off minimap terrain (tab).
The sound alert doesn't seem to work yet.

Please consider fixing these 2 other issues I made videos about

My replays are broken in that they never show any players leaving the game.
Well done guys, keep it up.
Is this an out of date Christmas gift?
Hello.

thanks Blizzard team for +10 years of a great game.

After Patch 1.22.2, I can't load the game.
I get an "unexpected error".

Side note, no idea why when I re-installed the game I was automatically given the name "SilentSword".

thanks
You rock Matt! Finally I feel myself like I'm playing on iCCup: that joining alert gonna save this game 100%! Keep going guys, we're almost getting there where we can comfortly play this masterpiece 24/7.

You guys are pretty great but I am curious... are you guys aware of us "little guys" and but that I mean the Snipers Community. We have been here since 99'. Any type of acknowledgement would suffice and be appreciated. If you guys are not familiar with us. You can check out our discord here https://discord.gg/vfhxghc and watch our newly made Snipers video here https://youtu.be/TDa0sQj-vXY.

I really hope you guys come join us, because although melee is great... we believe we created a game so great that it maybe stand-alone worthy. Again, you guys are doing an amazing job and it'd be cool to know if you guys know of us or maybe have sniped at some point in time (Since it's a very popular map).


I'll join, and take a look. Thanks for supporting BW.

Seems like a lot of issues already when watching replays.
So far, we've had no luck in reproducing this issue internally. Is there any other info you can share - for example, general PC specs? OS? Does this only happen in the replay overlay? (I assume it also happens in the observer overlay). Is it happening when watching via the single player menu or only in the multiplayer menus? Anything else you can think of to help us narrow it down.


All of my replays seem corrupt now. The players seem to be afk with workers stacking up idle. I am watching by going through the profile menu not creating a game. I did update to the latest nvidia driver not sure that had anything to do with it tho. Specs are Windows1064bit, nvidia 1070
Thanks for the patch and fixes! And big thanks for the dev-update you mentioned.

Not a fan of the disconnect change, however. There can be legit reasons for not wanting to play an opponent, and I believe matchuppicking and vetoing an opponent after playing him a couple of times should be implemented before this way out is closed off. See the thread ('15 games out of 25 is ZvZ', 'Why do I have to play the same opponent so many times in a row', etc.)

I used to get this all the time, especially when playing on Circuit Breakers, was pretty annoying (especially since you have to tab to make the white separator bars show up on the minimap).
After ladder game is finished I have everything empty on the screen. No data is loaded. Very common issue. Devs plz pay attention to this. Have to completely restart BW client to fix this.

Also have problems with some recent replays bug out. If you need more details I can share replay I played just now.

We've seen the multiple reports coming in on this, and are actively looking at it. Thanks again.
Thanks a lot!
We've just updated to 1.22.2.5120 to partially address an issue with UI going blank on certain machines in certain circumstances - the UI should now reappear when moving to a new screen if this happens (or scrubbing the replay to a new time offset).

We'll be updating again in coming days to:
* Further address the blank UI issue.
* Address the issue with replays not playing back properly when viewed from the History tab.

Thanks to TT1 for helping us reproduce the blank UI issue.
Awesome news! Thanks for transparency. TT1’s the man! :D
Great to see you guys are still implementing these little QOL changes. Looking forward to the roadmap for 2019.

the best UMS game ever made, Snipers


Super disputable .. there are a couple interesting Sniper maps with unique mechanics, creative terrain or generally are highly polished experiences, but, as a whole it's far from the best UMS game, guy! :P ..but it is an important part of SC history and if it's still actually alive as you say, happy to hear that!
Thanks for being awesome Blizzard.

Hats off to ya Matt Sherman~
