General info[edit]

The Nostalgia Tournament was announced in late September 2009 and had a prize pool of $1500. The sponsor remained anonymous. The main idea was to feature top level players on outdated maps and see how modern strategies would evolve on those. Day(9), Diggity and Xeris (also the main organizer) casted many of the games.[1]

Four groups of eight invited players each were generated. Each group got randomly seeded into an eight man single-elimination grid with the mode best of three. The winners received $250 and advanced to a four man double-elimination tournament where the first price were another $500.

Prize Pool[edit]

The winners of each group received $250, and the overall winner received an additional $500.

Finals[edit]

IdrA, MaNa, MistrZZZ and Draco should have been seeded into the four man tournament. IdrA however forfeited before the final stages and MistrZZZ received two walk overs for not showing up. Draco was up against MaNa in the first round and won there. Due to the two other players not showing up MistrZZZ finished third and Draco won over MaNa in the super final Best of Five.
