    Because he's invisible?

    I think it's because the AI doesn't know how to react to certain heroes. A friend of mine noticed that bots doesn't harass him, as the Broodmother when hidden in her web. There are also times that the bots doesn't actually harass but gets almost all denies.

    @Karyoplasma
    Isn't it that the use of Sacrifice, other than regaining mana, is to deny and potentially starve the enemy from exp and gold? Besides, weren't you the first to bring up the last hitting thing?

    Less creeps on your side means that you have better chances that your carry will be able to last hit behind tower range while you make sure, as the Lich, to make it harder for the enemy. And if I'm not making myself clear, you deny the melee creep via last hitting them since they're in the front line. Finally, I guess that you should have gotten the message in that last statement - that it was intended as something to lighten up the discussion, and not to escalate it in a heated discussion; to which I'm quite sure, the direction where you're headed. Cheer up.

Since the melee creep wave is constantly getting damaged, it is wiser to deny them via last hitting. And first of all, Lich shouldn't be competing LH with his lane partner, is he?
    As said: sacrificing a melee creep pushes the lane back just as effectively as sacrificing the ranged creep. And what has denying to do with taking the last hits? You don't really make any sense here.

    He will be if he lanes with slardar! Jesus christ almost every single support bot competes for cs with slardar! Sorry to get waaaay off topic but that sentence just reminded me of how annoying this was...

    Though of course a little bit of AI to make him not kill himself while going to Sacrifice something is good, but assuming average laning conditions this should never be a deciding factor really.

    Depends on player preference, IMO.

    If you want to starve the enemy on exp or you wanted to get more MP back, then by all means, sac the melee creep. But if you want the wave to push towards you and starve them on gold(and helps you in the long run by CSing within your tower range), then sac the ranged creep.

    You should NEVER sacrifice a ranged creep, simply because a melee creep gives more XP.

    I do agree that it's not worth using Sacrifice on ranged creeps, the difference in mana gained is not worth the difference in push.
    If anything, only make him do so when at full mana (But if he's doing shit right, he should only be at full mana at the start of the game...)

    using sacrifice on the ranged creep during laning phase is just stupid.

    melee gives u way more mana and it pulls the creepwave just as good as sacrifcing a ranged one. i'd highly dislike to see lich using sacrifice on ranged creeps only.

    also make him spam his nuke during lane on heroes, he got the mana for this.
