StarCraft II Beta Patch Notes - Patch 12 and 12.1

Patch 12 wasn't anything huge for the SC2 Beta. This time around, Protoss received really minor nerfs, the Terran Thor's model had some adjusting, the Zerg supply for a Roach doubled, and a crash bug was fixed. For anyone interested in Galaxy Edit, the undocumented Map Editor changes can be found on SC2Mapster.
