Overview[edit]

Reverse Temple is literally the reverse of the map Lost Temple, all high grounds become low grounds and vice versa. Most of Lost Temple's imbalances have been retained, including its glaring positional imbalances. Zerg had a hard time against Terran on this map; aside from sAviOr, who went 6-1 on it, the TvZ statistics for this map are 14-3 in favor of Terran.

Notable features[edit]

  • Narrow Choke Points - The entrance to each natural is narrowed down by three mineral patches. This helps with securing the natural early on, and can be mined away later in the game.
  • Middle Temples - The walls can help protect your army during pushes, making positional dominance important.
  • Natural Ravines - Behind each natural there is a ravine which is common for Siege Tank and Lurker drops.
  • Downwards Ramp into Main - This makes for easier containment, as it is difficult to exit your main when it is on low ground.
