Grubby - Heroes of the Storm Tierlist Last updated on 11 May 1986

Tierlists can be a useful guidance tool to evaluate the general strength of Heroes, but they should never be blindly followed.

Maps, synergy and counters on enemy team can influence the strength of a pick.

I made this Solo Q HL tierlist based on: personal experience (in Master+ HL), actual current win rates, the versatility of a Hero, how easily they get countered.


Order is always: Support - Specialist - Warrior - Assassin.

The most powerful of each category starts on the left, then descending.

Top Tier - First Pick / First Ban i

Top tier. Good first picks or first bans. Ask your #1 pick what he/she would like to take, and ban another one.

Tier 1 - Powerful i

If you're comfortable with these, they're good early picks. Don't feel forced to take them just because they rate highly.

Tier 2 - Viable i

Comfort is more important than strength. If you're comfortable with these viable Hero picks, and they fit in your draft, they're good!

Tier 3 - Not Optimal i

If you're kind of a master at them, they can be good, but they have hard counters and are hard to fit reliably into most drafts.
