View Full Version : Quick question regarding pushing...
12-12-2009, 02:03 PM
In a game I just played, I believe we lost because once we had the middle lane down to the twin towers, my team decided then to push side lanes.
I claimed that we should have pressed our advantage but they called me a noob etc etc.
Now it seems to me that by taking the pressure off we allowed them a stream of creeps to kill and get a bunch of gold from them and ended up with some nasty items.
So was I wrong? I was told that 'wasn't how you plan HoN'.
This aint a QQ. I'm willing to believe I'm wrong but it just didnt seem the best thing to do at the time.

If youve got the mid down, it can often be very hard to push for a fiunish without at least one fot he other sides. Especially late game. Getting more creeps into their base is often easier.
But each game is defferent, if you can push straight though mid, i say go for it.
However, the middle creeps giving them "a stream of gold" just isnt true, when they are defending their base, you have two jungles and kongor, as well as 2 stacks of ancient creeps.
If they got more money than you, your team was at fault.

Heres the deal. I'm assuming its the game you played scout as. Considering the rest of your team, you needed a bfury. You push both sidelanes while your allies stall middle. When the enemy is ready to engage you or mid, you move to another lane or mid. Keep pushing sidelanes so your team gets gold advantage as opposed to the gold gain being even (they had some carries as well)
The second you push both side lanes to base towers, keep stalling, farm their jungle, and push a side lane a bit to pressure them away from mid. The second one of the base raxxes goes down your team gets entry into their base and you win the game.
You'd pressure the side lanes, the fear of having a behemoth on your team prevents theirs from going out.
Their team had 3 carries. Forcing them into a single lane would grant your team a huge advantage. If you push both side lanes to reach raxxes at the same time, it means that they have to sac a rax or leave mid to be a 4v3-4 situation. (this is assuming your team had map control as opposed to theirs)
Other things you couldve done: get kongor, farm the entire map w/ pushing sidelanes while making your team stall mid, etc.

Lol no. I aint used this username in aaaages. It was an all Deadwood game.
But I understand more now. I just felt we let the momentum slip to their side by backing off.
