very good protoss changes,
strange zerg changes especially that semi-nerf to ultralisk
good terran changes (mech has been much more popular than bio lately)

"Map Publishing is now enabled: Using the map editor, you can upload your custom maps to share with the Battle.net community."

gotta love this though, thought it wouldn't be implemented before the beta-pause

Its weird that they did not change banshees. They seemed to be way too strong for the cost and effectivity.
What I also dont like is that medivac heals way too much dmg for only 1 energy point...

ultras is completely useless now.

To be honest this is the worst patch yet, weirdest buff to terran bio ever while at the same time nerfing void rays - yay -.-

Not to mention the removal of identifiers, jesus just what are blizzard doing.

I am not too sure if ultralisk are useless, they are weaker, but they do terrible dmg, especially with frenzy, i think you maybe can drop them into the other army or while fighting you can drop 3-4 ultras into the mainbase etc. and do terrible, terrible dmg.

but everybody can go to the highest league, so its wouldnt rly be a pro league. Unless they would make very rough restrictions.

Like only the best 300 can join this league and once u go beyond 300 u go to a platim league again.

Blizzard said somewhere that they are planing are proleague which gonna be invite only, don't know what are their thoughts with the diamond league now, maybe they just didn't like the word "copper"

Terra is clearly the best race now, first they nerf Bio and now boost it again with cheaper shells and now stim+shield buff. I read today the splash damage of ultralisks got reduced from 100% to 33% so they deal even less dmg then before and less hp, Zerg either has to win early or they never can win lategame vs terra
