Most Successful Heroes

Hero Total count [Picks] % of games 1st Phase 2nd Phase 3rd Phase Win %
Enigma 14 2.2% 1 2 11 71.43%

Keeper of the Light 19 2.99% 7 6 6 63.16%

Selection criteria:-

  • Top 5 heroes with the highest win-rate.
  • Minimum 10 games played.

As you can see in the graph above, heroes with the highest win-rate are Enigma, Kunkka, Necrophos, Razor and Keeper of the Light (Kotl).

All of them have one thing in common; they are all situational picks. To be more precise, they are picked under specific situations that can outright disrupt the mechanics in a team-fight.

For example, Enigma's Blackhole or Kotl's Will-O-Wisp ultimate's, which are extremely disruptive in nature and can shut down the enemy ranks completely.

Least Successful Heroes

Hero Total count [Picks] % of games 1st Phase 2nd Phase 3rd Phase Win %
Zeus 11 1.73% 0 1 10 27.27%
Earth Spirit 57 8.98% 31 16 10 31.58
Lycan 15 2.36% 1 3 11 33.33%
Brewmaster 12 1.89% 0 4 8 33.33%
Storm Spirit 70 11.02% 16 11 43 35.71%

Selection criteria:-

  • Top 5 heroes with the lowest win-rate.
  • Minimum 10 games played.

Only two heroes stand-out from this list, i.e., The Spirit brothers; Storm and Earth. Both of them have fallen off the wedge regardless of being two of the most picked heroes.

The former can be a dangerous opponent to go up against as it scales well into the late game whilst the latter is always used as a position 4 and helps set up ganks.

The rest are situational picks albeit in absence of other trending or preferred heroes.
