Heart of the Swarm is getting closer and closer.

The upcoming 1.5 patch will be our most feature-laden patch to date. This patch represents the first steps towards the release of our first expansion for StarCraft II, Heart of the Swarm, and will include numerous upgrades and fixes throughout the game. One of the most significant additions will be the all new Arcade feature which includes improved custom game visibility, ratings, reviews, game instructions, screenshot support, and more. Patch 1.5 will also include significant improvements throughout the overall user interface, streaming support, antialiasing, editor and modding upgrades, new art tools, and more. We’ll go into further details about these features in future developer updates. In this update, I would like to provide some insight into the thinking and motivation behind a few of the upcoming changes.

"and will include numerous upgrades and fixes throughout the game."

Hm, tbh I think that they were doing that long long time before LoL even existed, and that is with World of Warcraft. Don't know did you played WoW and how much, but when they are near new expansion, they release the last patch of current expansion, that includes a lot of stuff that will come out with expansion. It can get really broken though, so I hope that they won't release new units, mechanic and some stuff like that.

But still, updating game as a whole, without changing the balance "much" will be really good. Can't wait for HOTS beta though. :P

If you don't like SC2, don't post in forums how shitty it is.
