I haven't been able to play since the patch, since Battle.net seems to be totally broken right now, can't play a single game.

But the Battle.net interface has changed and it seems like they polished it alot and added some cool features to the achievement system:


Starcraft 2 Achievement System Battle.net


You get this in the Battle.net news windows right as you log in. It's pretty cool as it tells you how to unlock some hidden avatars, like the Spectre (the one you see in this image above).

Anyway, it's pretty neat, I just wish I could play to actually try to earn some achievements and see what the Guide 02 is :)

Husky's video of Patch 13 more or less sums up my opinions and comments on this patch.

The one thing that really jerks my chain is that in Patch 13, because of a really awful bug, you can't view replays from Patch 1 to 12. I'm hoping this is fixed because this is a really big problem right now. (This is also why the HDH is right now having difficulties with the 3rd Place matchup between Nony and TLO. They had their replays on Patch 12, and so these replays can't be casted until this bug is fixed. The finals are casted fine. I recommend watching them! Really epic! (Won't give out spoilers here!))
