It is a known fact that putting wards inside the neutral spawn camps prevents them from spawning but recently, I see our neutrals camps not spawning any creeps. I checked the replay and saw that the opposing team put the ward behind the neutral camp instead of the usual in-front.

This is new to me so now I ask how big is the radius(or area) that the game checks? I always thought is was a triangular area in front of the neutral camp.

EDIT: If the vision of the neutrals camps prevents them from spawning, then how come this ward does not prevent them from respawning? neutral camp respawned

Here are the spawn boxes for the radiant side of the map courtesy of http://dota-2.co/topic/4159-neutral-camp-spawn-points/:

  • I added an image where the ward vision did not prevent the neutral camp from re-spawning.

  • @meganairda not sure if its intentional or it just so happens that the boundary is near those items

    @MegaNairda There are plenty of markers like those that seem intentional. Many indicate tower range, as well.
