I was playing a 3v3 the other day with a few friends and what seems to keep happening was that they had a reinforcement beacon (I don't know the exact name. I know it comes from the Tech Marine) at the top of the map. I'm at the bottom of the map. I tell my hero to retreat and instead of running back to base (which is the closest) he deicdes to run ALL THE WAY TO THE NORTH. Through enemy troops to get to their beacon.. but he died in the process.
Is this something thats intended or what?
