Heart of the Swarm Update #10

ImageNot one week ago, Blizzard published the last update for the beta of HotS, but the next update is already coming. While Protoss and Terran will get some nerfs, Zerg will be buffed significantly.

The latest update, the tenth so far, has not quite a lot of changes, but they will change the game quite a bit. Terrans and Protoss will have to think of some new strategies, while Zergs will be able to rely on old well known tactics.

The Caduceus Reactor upgrade will be harder to get as one will need a Fusion Core to get it, so Terrans will it need a little longer until they will be able to upgrade. The Protoss players will also have to wait a bit longer, if they are going for the Blink upgrade as it needs 30 more seconds now.

Zerg players will be very happy with the patch as the range of Fungal growth is going to be increased to 10. Additionally the missile speed will be boosted to 15.

Full list of changes

The Caduceus Reactor upgrade now requires a Fusion Core before research can begin.

Widow Mine
Sentinel Missiles
Primary target damage reduced from 160 to 125.


Research time increased from 140 to 170 seconds.


Fungal Growth
Range increased from 8 to 10.
Missile speed increased from 10 to 15.

Blizzard seems to go back and forth, while this upgrade will outbalance the game heavily. Fungal growth used to have a range of 9, then it was nerfed to 8 and now it has been buffed to 10 again. More and more infestors will be used, so Terrans and Protoss will have to think of some new tactics. With some tech delayed, Zergs will feel even more comfortable to drone up.
