So I was watching a competitive replay just today.
And the carry (soulstealer) on hellbourne was using the crow to stack the creeps in the "safe big" camp.
I think it's genius.
Why don't we have any threads here that explain the mechanics of such tactics or various others mostly seen in competitive play.
Replays help to improve our game (by a lot) but instructions do come in handy as well.
Trolls are welcome
Was it like that in dota? I don't really recall seeing anyone do this in competitive games.

there are no guides because its an exploit and they would be deleted.

Its pretty much the same thing as controlling a creep, but in my opinion you would only be able to stack yellowish camps because red camps could very well 1-shot the courier lol.
I hate my life.
The site with the replay is currently down.
The match ID I believe is 22278492
It's during the XIV HoN tourney.
Clans Scriming are WHP and (I don't remember).
The player taking advantage of it was chu` from WHP.
The couriers belonged to Warden but I'm not sure who was doing the stacking (can't tell)
^well scratch that.

I don't think it's THAT much of an exploit, a courier is something any competent team gets every game anyways. They can always do it as well just like stacking. If anything, I feel that a hatchet on courier is more of an exploit.
i don't think its an exploit since you can also do this with dominated creeps and both of them are player-controlled unit.
if you think its an exploit then how about Maliken stacking legion ancient creeps while on middle lane using his sword throw or Pharaoh stacking any neutral creeps using missile.
next patch creeps should no longer attack the courier at all, so it will prevent from using it to stack creeps
