ImagePatch 1.4.2 has gone live since yesterday, and with it comes some interesting new buffs for the Protoss while a nerf to the Terran EMP.

Protoss players have been heavily complaining about the recent meta game shifts, due to new found strategies by Terran players through EMP, and many professional Protoss players have repeatedly been quoted on saying that the Protoss race is currently imbalanced.

It seems that Blizzard has heard all the Protoss woes, and has released a patch to favorably help the Protoss race, by lowering the cost of Forge upgrades and shortening the radius of the Terran EMP.

The Full Patch Notes are Below:
