With us moving towards hero / team league I figured I’d put together a tier list as I see it now. Hoping to spur some discussion. Let me know what you think! Numbers next to the hero indicates notes.
These are the top heroes. If you can pick them and have some experience on them you should. In general I would expect some of these to get the Blizzard “balance” at some point
- Anub’arak (1)
These heroes bring a lot to a team, and if you are playing at a higher MMR / hero league expect to see a lot of them.
- The Lost Vikings (2)
These heroes might have some limitations but can work in the proper comp. Generally they are still strong picks
These heroes have some sort of serious limitation and generally there is a similar hero that works better than them.
- Li Li
- Sgt. Hammer
These heroes are more or less nonviable at a more competitive level and I would expect Blizz to attempt to adjust them at some point. Sub 40 win %.
- Stiches (3)
Anub’arak is currently the best hero in the game. His win percentage of 60% is one of the highest in the history of the game and he just brings more to the team than any comparable character. I would caution buying him however as he is likely going to get the balance hammer sooner than later.
TLV is a very strong hero, but is likely one of the most difficult heroes to play correctly. Additionally if picked first / early it is possible to counter them with certain comps.
Stiches is in a terrible place right now. Early in the game he was my most played hero and the top warrior. Blizzard nerfed all of his abilities, his talents, and his scaling. He is almost unplayable in his current iteration. He has one of the worst win percentages in the history of the game.
