StarCraft 2 Patch 1.1 Released

Postby Lavarinth » Tue Sep 21, 2010 10:41 am

We knew it was coming, and as promised StarCraft 2's first patch, 1.1, has released today. To acquire it is as simple as opening StarCraft 2, where you'll be directed to the update window. The changes are not exactly a long list for gameplay, but substantial for the editor. Sorry folks, no chat rooms quite yet, but here's hoping for another patch soon! And is it just me, or are you also a little weirded out having to press Ctrl + Q for "quick save" instead of quitting?

Well, make sure to check out the patch notes by following the comment link or clicking here to see the patch notes in the following post.

Well, there is one big thing that Blizzard REALLY improved this time around.

With my tests, I managed to load up 12 banks containing 8970 integers each with success in solo tests over battle.net.

That's a HUGE improvement over battle.net pre-1.1 that gave you the middle finger if you had a SINGLE bank with 81+ integers.

It might look like wind to many of you but for custom maps, it will change quite a few things. It finally mean that you can have RPGs where you can save your hero, lots of items, your stats, quests completed, etc. etc. and load it on your next game without any password. On top of it, with that much usable space, the banks could contain multiple characters, special side data and so on.

Previously, a single bank of 80 integers just didn't cut it if you were any half-serious since it was just enough to keep very basic data (ex : how many times you played, very minor saves, etc.).

However, my tests could NOT have 15 100% full banks (instead of 12) for 15 different players without battle.net coughing up. But at this point, you more or less just need to ensure that you only use 75% or so of all banks for all 15 players.

Another considerable drawback is that uploading + retransfering banks might take forever. In my solo tests, 12 full banks easily took a good 3-4 minutes during map load without any other triggers. However considering the previous situation, that's almost negligible.

As far I am concerned, it also means that my projects heavily based on bank triggers are now viable.

My only hope is that Blizzard won't decide to make the bank limits harsh again in the future concerning bank triggers.

Ultralisks attacking a building will hurt everything around the building. Working as intended?

I could but it's really not in my biggest priorities but ill take note of that for Pictionary.

Since some players start getting tired of W&M (after all, we played like 8 weeks non-stop as the first game in FFS events), I am finally dragging back my map plans that were closely linked to bank triggers.

Do you really want to keep track of how hard I own you guys in that map?

Now that I think about it, that sounds like a great idea...

It might not add chat rooms, But Region switching is available (to a limited extent).

Seeing as I have a SEA version of SC2 it's a nice bonus.

I tried to add you as Quirriff.661 but I had a "Unable to find friend".

So either you need to switch to the USA region already or you might have a different player name and/or ID number thus ill need it if you want that I drag into the FFS event games (today and every saturdays at 9 pm GMT -5, Eastern Time).
