Hi all-

We've just released Maintenance patch which includes the following change:

- Additional logging around observer mode desyncs.

Also, we believe the server stability issues in the KR region are resolved. Please let us know if you are still experiencing disconnections. Thank you for your patience.

Balance Team submitted Community Update - March 12, 2019 38 days ago

After an epic final and an emotional championship ceremony at IEM Katowice, we got to witness soO take home a championship win! It was an uphill battle as he started the series being down 0–2, but in the end, he pulled it off and came through with a victory. Congratulations to soO!

Speaking of IEM, we saw a lot of cool strategies employed throughout the tournament, including Gumiho’s Battle Mech, as well as the subject of our first discussion topic: Nydus Worms.

Nydus Network/Nydus Worm
  • Nydus Worms will now have 3 armor instead of 5 armor when emerging.

While we love seeing some of the new strategies involving the Nydus Worm in action, we feel it can sometimes take too much of a commitment to stop a Worm from emerging even if the defender spots it right away. To help remedy this, we’re reducing the Nydus Worms’ armor while they emerge to give small groups of basic units—like Zerglings, Zealots, and Marines—an easier time taking them out, provided they discover them within a reasonable time frame. At the same time, we’d still like to keep some of its bonus armor intact to preserve its resilience against worker pulls.

Forge/Cybernetics Core
  • Level 1 upgrade times increased by 15 seconds.
  • Level 2 upgrade times increased by 18 seconds.
  • Level 3 upgrade times increased by 22 seconds.

Over the past few months, we’ve been following discussions within the community surrounding the TvP matchup, much of it centered around Protoss’s ability to build an upgrade advantage over Terran. To address this, we’d like to reduce the windows in which Protoss are able to gain that advantage over Terran by increasing the Protoss upgrade durations. As upgrades have historically been particularly impactful, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this change.

Our current plan is to release these changes to live servers on Monday, March 25. However, in order to give players ample practice time, these changes will be available for testing on the Testing tab and the Balance Test mod starting today. As always, let us know your thoughts!

03/06/2019 06:08 PMPosted by ZeLLeX Hello, I am Korean and I tried my best to translate this page in English.

Please do not misunderstand. I am not the one who put this post up and I do not use maphack.

Honestly, I don't really play ladder games (I usually only play with computer) and it doesn't matter to me whether players use maphack or not (personally).

However, I was hoping that this can help you analyze and take this further with hacks/maphacks.

I do not know how much this can do, but just to tell you, in Korean community, they are losing hope in Blizzard and they are starting to say things like, "You can report to Blizzard all you want, but they don't care and will do nothing about it."
This is true, but I am hoping that you can prove them wrong.

"I am a user that uses Maphack in Starcraft Remastered"

1. Making and spreading of maphack only applies to small community in South Korea. In overseas, they don't seem to make it.

2. I said that maphack only applies to small community but these days, the users that use maphack only share via messenger. We do not like new users to maphack.

3. It is true that we have to pay to use maphack. They install the maphack using remote control and afterwards, use code when executing the program. However, the code changes every now and then. To prevent spreading of maphack, we pay in time interval or just when we need to use it. There is also concept of life-time use payment. Even after new patch in Starcraft, the maphack is updated within 1 hour. You need to pay additional for the upgrade.

4. Maphack, Unit Control Group, Dropping players, Splitting workers in the beginning of match, reading ally chat from opposite team, Able to see dark templar or terran mine in the minimap with the X mark is available.

5. There is a rule that says we need to use the maphack very carefully (not noticeable) so that we can use this maphack for a long time.

6. I know people that use this maphack is about 70 people and most amateur use it in high tier. They really use it well (not noticeable).

7. Maphack user reported in FireBatHero's (Blacktube) YouTube video is real. He actually received a warning in the group chat in messenger.

8. I will only take and answer certain questions.

Thanks Zellex, again we take cheating/hacking claims very seriously, and we are currently investigating the recent reports. Additionally, we welcome all feedback for SCR. We can't prioritize everything at once, but we are continuing to work diligently on SCR fixes and content.

Probably not helpful but it seems like this Korean blogger is selling maphack. Since the negotiation seems to be done through kakaotalk (Korean messenger system), I have no idea how much the guys is charging but it seems that his product(?) is term-based and has to be renewed every once in a while.

We highly advise not engaging with this post. This could very well be a scam and or virus.

SCR is equipped very well with anticheat tech. That's not to say we are not constantly looking at ways to improve. As we investigate this further expect that we will take action appropriately.
