StarCraft II Beta Patch 3 Build version 0.5.0.14219B deployed

Blizzard deployed the third patch: StarCraft II Beta – Patch 3 (version 0.5.0.14219B) which has several changes for the Terran upgrades at the Armory and Engineering Bay; and the Protoss Zealot got a slight nerf to their unit’s shields. Pretty much a balance testing. There were a few bugs they nailed down, the most important for ATI card users, and one Zerg bug (no pun) that affected Terran Reapers in a very bad way.
