General Improvements

- Going forward, each update will reset the available chapter buttons on the campaign screen. To restore your previous progress, you need only start Chapter One, then quit, then you can continue from where you left off.

- Fixed Chapter 2 not being completable if the Frostmourne quest was completed before the Mal'Ganis quest.

Lurker
- Fixed Lurkers taking too long to switch targets when ordered, causing them to miss more often than not.
- Increased spine area of effect to 70 from 64.

Queen's Snare
- Fixed missing area targeting indicator.
- Increased radius to 300 from 250.
- Decreased movement speed reduction % to 25/40/55 from 33/50/66.

Other Unit Fixes

- Fixed Creep Colonies and Spires turning invisible when cancelling an upgrade.
- Spawning Pool, Queen's Nest, Ultralisk Cavern, and Defiler Mound models have been adjusted to be closer to the shape they were in StarCraft.
- Spawning Pool and Infested buildings now use the same rally point as Hatcheries.
- Halved the delay between the Sunken Colony's attack and its target being damaged.
