The International Hero Statistics after Saturday
Posted by Christoph "malnor" Helbig 36 weeks, 5 days ago
Tidehunter has taken over in being the most picked hero in The International 2012 playoffs. Lycanthrope is being the most banned hero as Naga Siren gets through more often.
Get the new hero statistics from The International 2012 from Dota Academy: Naga Siren is no longer the most banned hero and Venomancer is no longer the most picked hero as the event of the year goes into the playoffs.
|Most picked heroes (max. 28)|
Tidehunter has become the most picked hero with 20 picks out of 28 games, overtaking Venomancer in popularity. Morphling, maybe the most hated hero in Seattle, is just falling one pick behind, being at 19 picks so far, on par with Leshrac.
|Most banned heroes (max. 28)|
As Naga Siren is getting through the banning phase more often in the playoff matches, Lycanthrope has taken over in being the most banned hero. Invoker and Rubick are heroes to be picked and banned about the same amount of times.
|Most/least successful heroes (28 matches)|
Rubick top, Tinker flop would be my headline for these stats. Rubick has worked out even better in concern to winning percentage than Morphling, especially considering Rubick has been banned in all other 15 games where he wasn't picked. Tinker hasn't worked out for any team so far. And the "Anti-Morphling" Luna wasn't very successful either.
However, it's the final day of The International. Statistics are interesting, but they don't win the important games. Today, the Juggernauts and Death Prophets might count. It might count that teams are banning Pudge against Na'Vi, we might even see Morphling get banned more often, or see more Naga Siren Dark Seer combos allowed. It's grand final day in Seattle! It's Dota 2 time. Let's hope for some great games in Benaroya Hall.
