Braxis Holdout is Cancer

Terrible map, 10x more snowbally than Haunted Mines. Please bring back Mines and delete Braxis; despite its shortcomings Mines was much more fun and less snowbally than this turd of a map.
Nope. It wasn't. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

It's actually not snowbally at all when you know how to play it. Imagine this;

One team on Cursed Hollow just ignores all 3 tributes, what happens? It snowballs.

What happens on Infernal Shrines when one team just ignores mercs, prioritizes the shrine over XP and loses every punisher? It snowballs.

What happens on BoE when one team just plays D for every Immortal. It Snowballs.

What happens when one team loses every temple or ignores the temples? It Snowballs.

So what happens on braxxis when teams try to 3/2 split ignore mercs and rush to hold objective. They get snowballed.

Braxxis is a 4/1 split, merc rotation map. You 4/1, grab a merc camp, gank the rotation, cap both shrines on the power play.

You do NOT ever 3/2, because then you can't get mercs, then you can't hold a shrine, because the enemy team will withdraw 1 from the 2 man lane, still get the soak and 4 man your 3, cap that, then rotate.

EZ.

Play the map right -- use mercs properly, don't waste them after the beacon phase is over. When both teams do this, it stays even and goes upwards of 20 minutes.
