Lost Temple returned in StarCraft II[4] but was removed from the ladder pool as of February 2011.[5] The FFA version was replaced by The Shattered Temple.[6] As of May, 2011, it held fifth place in the top ten most popular 1v1 maps in the game.[7]

Lost Temple features four starting points on raised land, each connected by a very narrow choke point to a natural expansion, guarded by a wider choke. The natural is vulnerable to attacks by ground siege units such as siege tanks. The map also features island expansions and golden mineral expansions guarded by destructible rocks.[8]


  • The map was designed by Scott Mercer. It became one of the most popular maps in the e-sports scene of the original StarCraft.[9]
