does starcraft 2 use tcp for 1v1 game data

Starcraft II Technical Support
Do starcraft 2 use only udp for game data ?
I found tl article which says it uses only udp https://tl.net/forum/starcraft-2/117158-some-notes-regarding-sc2-networking
And than i found some computer science paper that says it uses udp aswell.

That would be great, because you can't disable nagling in windows 10.
I used wireshark to capture packets and there are only ack and psh packets for tcp, which is strange, because i just read it used udp for game data and tcp only for downloads and battle.net and i had both battle.net and agent.exe off.
So what are all those ack packets for. Strange.
Hey IIIIIIIIIIII,

StarCraft II requires access to both TCP and UDP ports, I do not have specific information on what data goes through which ports though. For more information, have a look at the following support article: Configuring Router and Firewall Ports.
