Hero Tier List - March 2012

By Danelaan - 2nd April 2012 - 17:56 PM

Hello everyone and welcome to the March Hero Tier List!

This List keeps track of the heroes used by the competitive teams and is based on data collected from the official matches between these competitives teams - which means scrims aren't used to build this list. Since the list is built manually, however, only the "relevant" matches are used - that is to say the matches involving at least one known competitive team among the 15-20 teams that compete in most tournaments. Below this text, you will find a link to the data sheet in which you will be able to find the data used - bans, picks and also the win/loss ratio of the heroes.

March was a very intense month, with more than 153 competitive games being played - roughly 10 games were remade and thus couldn't be used to build this list - which is almost twice as much as last month! Even though the top picks / bans were very similar compared to last month, you will notice that the "Sellswords" and "Specialists" Tiers have increased a lot, which means that various strategies and kind of picks were used - with the introduction of heroes almost never seen before, such as Balphagore or Moraxus. Let's hope the trend goes on for the future and that more and more heroes will be consistently seen in competitive games!

The Raw Data


God Tier


These heroes are the most awesome you could find and recruit. They are banned or picked (and first picked) in most of competitive games.

Legen... Wait for it... Dary!! Tier


Even though they aren't as famous as the God Tier heroes, the heroes in the Legendary Tier are still picked or banned in most games. Some are just very powerful, some fit well in the current metagame. They are among the stars of this month.

Sellswords Tier


Picked regularly, they are reliable heroes. They can be replaced and they aren't a must have but they do their job very well.

Specialists Tier


These are last-pick material, used in surprise strategies or just because they can counter a specific hero, in a specific game. Even though they weren't seen quite often, they might have proven very useful in the few games they were picked in.

Drunkards Tier


The opposite of the God Tier heroes, the Drunkards weren't used this month. Some have been in this categories for months, some fell in that dark hole this month. They are picked from time to time by a drafter in need of a surprise pick.
