Pillars of Gold is a 1v1 map for StarCraft II. It was introduced in Season 2, 2020 with patch 4.12.0[1], maintained in the map pool for season 3 of 2020 and season 1 of 2021 and removed from the ladder in season 2, 2021[2].

Description[edit | edit source]

Terran prospectors have reported that they’ve seen structures in the distance that soared up to the sky like pillars of gold. The Protoss settlement consists of 14 bases, where the linear third is further away from the opponent compared to the triangular third but in return, the high grounds surrounding it must be taken into consideration. No matter in which direction you go, there’ll be a fourth waiting for you. The corner bases will prove valuable as vantage points and to help control the base located below it.[3]
