That seems like quite the buff for Protoss. Makes me wonder how anybody survived with them before this patch, and how many converts there will be now that so many of their upgrades are cheaper.

Not really, it just encourages upgrades from players, because they weren't being utilized enough. Also, Protoss is struggling a bit in all matchups worldwide, so it gives them a small boost.

I had been feeling like the game was really balanced. But these are significant cuts in the cost of the upgrades. Forget the rest of it, but by simply cutting lvl 1 shields from 200/200 to 150/150 is Huge in my opinion.
then add in that lvl 2 cut by 75/75, and lvl 3 cut by 100/100
It now takes 225/225 less to get lvl 3 shields. that is significant decrease!
then the cut of armor and weapons at lvl 2 and 3... I hope i am wrong, but I feel very strongly that Zealots are going to become a huge problem in the early to mid game as they get upgraded much quicker. again, hope i am wrong, just my opinion.
