Ok, so I am not sigma or some bad ass caller. But last night I think I learned that some people are misinformed about the badlands "forward hold".
Basically, for newer players, a forward hold is used when you have uber disadvantage to cover all entrances and exits into badlands last when you have all players up to do so. This forces the pushing team to either a) uber scouts into the doors to push last or b) sneak a spy either through upper batts or the 2 entrance doors or c) have your team climb spire and spam out the defending team in lobby.
This hold allows your team (who does not have uber) to safely stay alive long enough for your team to (hopefully) regain uber advantage. And potentially not lose a round just because your team was wiped at mid.
So to recap, my belief is... you get wiped at mid or at least your medic dies.. you hold forward in attempt to negate the other team's uber push into last to keep defending team-mates alive. In other words, if you have even ubers the safer thing would be to just hold last like normal. Correct?
Here is another Link describing how to hold and why.
Thoughts or comments?
