Nostalgia is recognised as one of the most iconic "old school" maps, known to be a difficult map to strategize for. PvZ was the most famous match-up on this map as it required both sides to play a low gas style; Nostalgia was the first major map whose natural expansion did not have a Vespene geyser.

There have also been many memorable TvZs played upon the map, involving many inventive plays by both sides, as well as groundbreaking series such as the end of [1] iloveoov's 27-0 TvZ streak and used in the XellOs vs YellOw 2003 Olympus OSL final.

PvT is also not to be neglected, as many famous games were played on the map, including an infamous "mine daebak" by Reach versus Control on the last set of the 2004 Gillette OSL semifinal.

Nostalgia is one of the maps with the most balanced records in all match-ups.

Notable Features[edit]

  • No Gas Natural - This feature leads to many unique strategies being played out such as one base play.
  • Double Bridge - Effectively means attacking the natural is much harder due to the small width of these bridges.
  • Second Entrance to Natural - This forces the player to concentrate defence for two locations.
