With Legacy of the Void hitting Battle.net on November 10th, it is time you asked yourself if you are ready for Starcraft II’s latest patch. A word of advice to all the players who were keeping their good replays stored for future showoffs: record them now because they are not going to be of use to you anymore.
That’s right, with all the new goodies that this patch promises, there are some disadvantages as well. The most prominent one is the fact that your previous replays will not work anymore in Starcraft II’s latest patch. Any replay that you consider valuable or any major plays that you might have pulled off are going to disappear, so you’d best start recording.
After this announcement was made, a few sites started collecting all the good replays they could find so they can use them for future endeavors. It kind of sounds nice to have a YouTube channel with exclusive “old school” videos that nobody can watch anymore right? Either way, there are tons of things you could do with those recorded matches, so the hype is quite understandable.
It appear that the culprit behind this feature is none other than the improved chat system. Traysent also confirmed that previous records would not be supported by patch 3.0. But the reason behind this seems to be the interface itself. The since the new patch contains new and polished features, it cannot sustain the “old” Starcraft II that we have been playing until now.
The changes that Blizzard are coming up with in this next patch are pretty exciting and it shows that the company is really listening to their players. While things are not really ideal at the moment, we seem to be getting there. It’s pretty slow, but at least we know that we are doing on the right track, don’t you think?
We are going to have a new chat system, more flexible and more reliable, some changes to the Arcade menu, so you can properly browse existing games and see if you like their specifications or not, and the great UI update that will really give you a Starcraft feeling. Until now, the game seemed like forged reality, but now, things are getting really, really cool.
As mentioned before, Legacy of the Void is going to be available on the 10th of November. You can check the game specifics on Blizzard’s official site and if you like it you have two options: buy it or improve your PC and buy it. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
