Legacy of the Void Balance Update -- July 6, 2016

After thorough consideration and reviewing the feedback of players all over the world, we've made a few changes to the balance of the game. We previously tested these changes in the Balance Test Map and are now ready to move forward with them. You can expect to see the following adjustments applied to Legacy of the Void multiplayer today.

Balance Changes


  • Queen
    • Anti-air weapon range increased from 7 to 8
  • Spore Crawler
    • Root time decreased from 6 to 4

If you're interested in the StarCraft II Balance Team's reasoning behind each change, you can check out David Kim's recent forum post on the changes.

We continue to appreciate all the feedback we’ve received from the community as it helps shape each of our updates, and we hope you’ll continue to participate in future balance testing. Until next time, we hope you enjoy these changes!
