This is intentional to prevent people from spamming braves across terrain they shouldn't be able to walk over or across.

Perhaps it needs to be reworked then. It makes maps like PP significantly imbalanced and affects the professional community's willingness to embrace Beta. Green base gets an awful convert and loses even more to this, some 7+ braves

Agreed that this is bad map design and not beta's fault, but it's easier to fix in beta than change 1000 maps (on reflection we have too many maps).
