Starcraft 2 Patch 1.3.3 Now on the PTR

Large scale Protoss changes are now live on the Public Test Realm. The implications are, at initial glace, strongest for PvP, and this appears to be Blizzard’s attempt at solving the pesky 4gate vs 4gate issue. Bear in mind that these are certainly subject to change, and it’s called the TEST realm for a reason. Full patch notes are after the jump.
