StarCraft 2 Patch Brings Bug Fix, Minor Balance Change

Patch 1.1.3 for Blizzard's StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is rolling out across all regions today, bringing a minor balance change, a bug fix, and new custom map filters to find games of Tower Defense and Tug of War.

StarCraft II lead producer Chris Sigaty told us to expect a minor patch in the week's following BlizzCon. A large features and balance patch should be released later this year, which will include, among other things, chat channels and the support for seasonal ladders.

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty - Patch 1.1.3


  • New game categories have been added to filter Tower Defense and Tug of War custom maps.
  • Thor
    • This unit will now prioritize attacking ground combat units over Medivacs.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a desync that could occur when trying to watch replays that had a dependency on bank files.

The timing of this patch places it just a few days before the finals of the GSL2, which is scheduled for this Saturday in South Korea. The minor balance change shouldn't affect things too much for the final match, but it will be interesting to see if Blizzard releases the large patch before the qualifiers start for GSL3.
