DotA 2 has been in patch 7.32 for quite a while now, and we have seen multiple meta during this period. The next patch is estimated to release before Lima Major and the rumor has it that the IceFrog himself is working on this patch.
It was stated that IceFrog was working on some other games and as a result, couldn’t help Valve with new patches of DotA 2. Also, with the release of the new DotA hero, Muerta, and several new items, the next patch is sure to bring big changes.
But, till then we have no choice but to wait patiently and enjoy the current patch. Personally, this patch was very different for me than other previous patches. The rise of new unconventional carries like Pudge and Shadow Fiend, and mids like Tusk and Snapfire proved that you don’t have to stick to old tactics to create meta.
This also shows that DotA is always evolving and every hero will get the limelight. We still have some time before the next patch so for now let’s look at the heroes that are good in this patch.
These are the heroes that are currently dominating in this patch. They are super good and have abilities to dominate the game completely. Hopefully, you are picking these heroes to get some easy wins on your matches.
|Doom||Carry/ Mid/ Offlane|
|Shadow Fiend||Carry/ Mid|
|Death Prophet||Mid/ Offlane|
These heroes are only slightly weaker than the S-tier heroes. They are still very strong in their respective positions and can win their lane in almost every matchup unless they are hard-countered. They can also set the tempo for their team.
|Queen of Pain||Mid|
The B-tier heroes fall in the middle. They can either solo carry the game, or drag the whole team down. They need certain items to come online and do their job. But until then, they usually like to play safe and slow.
C-tier heroes are what I’d like to call not-so-good heroes. I bet one of them is always in your every match and they are also the most toxic among all your teammates.
They are always hungry for farm and by the time they are ready to fight, you’ll have lost almost half of your towers. In general, they are very bad and you shouldn’t pick them if you don’t have heroes to make space for you in your team.
