Since creeps generally meet at the topleft and bottomright areas of the map in the initial wave that means the creeps are closer to the Hell Tower on top and Legion Tower on bottom. If you are a melee and want to tower hug asap, then simply go to the respective lane to get cheap wow gold. If you are a range, be considerate of this as melee can sometimes suffer quite a bit when leveling against range to get cheap wow gold.
Mid is generally covered by a range hero but can definitely be taken by melee. There is actually a slight disadvantage for range and that is the terrain. It is possible for range attacks to MISS as they travel over the steep ground about wow gold. Mid creeps are generally the first to meet in the initial wave before top and bottom because it is the shortest.
There exists a concept called Creep Blocking in order to assist the "bringing creeps closer to our own tower" factor,. This is getting directly in front of your creeps and doing a stop-go motion in order to force them to do the same and delay them from reaching their pre-programmed destination and allow the opposing creeps to move closer to your tower. Practice it. Simply use your hero to act as a wall about wow gold. The longer you can block them the greater the advantage it provides. Obviously this is best for the initial wave.
If you are a range hero against a melee, sometimes you may want to poke them while maintaining your distance if they move in close to attack creeps to get cheap wow gold. Sometimes you can harass with spammable spells but normal attacks are generally best about wow gold. If you are being harassed, move back a bit. There is no reason to take damage and allow them to set up for a possible kill.
General rule of thumb: If they move forward you move back. If you move forward they will probably move back if they believe you are a threat to get cheap wow gold.
