After being released just two days ago, the beta for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm has seen a lot of playtime from those that were lucky enough to get in. Blizzard has announced the first patch for the new game to address some balance issues that were discovered. Most of the complaints that I saw claimed that the Warhound unit was far too powerful, and its attack delay has increased from 1.3 to 1.7. The Swarm Host has also received a damage decrease while the Viper has had the Consume and Blinding Cloud abilities altered. In addition to a few more balance changes, listed at the link, a number of hot keys have also been changed.
