Last month, our Heroes of the Storm player Piotr “Nicker” Muzolf came up with a tier list featuring the heroes available in the game, which received positive reviews from the community. Shortly later, a new patch was released, forcing teams to rethink their strategies to adapt to the new meta.
As such, Muzolf has now updated his tier list to reflect the latest buffs and nerfs and to include the new hero, Sylvanas. Please keep in mind that the following list is based on high-level European Hero League and tournament matches and that it assumes equal player skill level. Below is a brief explanation on what each tier means:
- Tier 1 – Best heroes in their respectively roles. Picked or banned in almost every game. You can base your game around them and they fit almost every hero composition.
- Tier 2 – Very good choices if Tier 1 heroes are not available. Their worth may depend a little bit on your team’s hero composition, but they are still valuable picks.
- Tier 3 – Heroes that are rarely picked. They can be useful in specific hero compositions and can replace heroes that are ranked higher on the list.
- Tier 4 – Most likely not very useful heroes in the current meta.
