Primer for Influence: Influence is calculated with a combination of Pick Rate, Ban Rate, and Win Rate. Likely there are better bans biased on where you are on the ladder (whats good at lower ranks, what tilts your teammates during draft). Use your best judgement when banning. However, these are pretty safe bans of heroes with high adjusted pick rates and positive win rates across all Storm League ranks.

Note about Deathwing and Auriel: These heroes still have high ban rates although their winrates have come down a bit (Deathwing 52%-60%, depending on map avg 56% and Auriel 48%-59%, depending on map avg 53.6% ). Since ban rate pulls influence up, their influence is likely inflated from over-banning.
