1.20.8 has arrived. This patch was focused on dynamic turn rate and updated friend commands. 

Specific Changes & Improvements

  • Matchmaking games now have dynamic turn rate reduction if the client determines high latency. The turn rate will start with 16 and scale down appropriately. We expect this to make a positive impact on latency for matchmaking, and we are very excited to be rolling it out
  • /friends commands have been updated:
    • /f l (or list) Shows all Brood War friends plus all Blizzard friends who are currently in SCR
    • /f la (or list all) Shows all friends (BW + Blizzard, regardless of whether they are in SCR or not) 
    • /f lb (or listBlizzard) Shows all Blizzard friends (no Brood War friends) regardless of whether they are in SCR or not
    • /f lo (or listOnline) Shows all friends (BW + Blizzard who are in SCR) who are currently online
       
  • Updated the SD option for bilinear to be a slider. Sliding to the left increases sharpness, sliding to the right increases the intensity of the filter
  • Slightly reduced the size of the Replay UI center console


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where users would sometimes see a blank page on the post matchmaking toast screen
  • Portraits in chat now update immediately when changed for friends and non-friend users
