Unfavored Heroes: Why aren't they picked more often?

If you follow our blog posts, you may have realized by now that we focus on meta trends, specifically heroes that make a splash in either pub or pro games, or even both.

It’s been more than half a year since we did our last Tier List, and now is an excellent time to have a look at how meta has changed since then. During this period we’ve received numerous small patches, all aimed at making pub play and The International balanced as possible.
