None of this would be possible without help from the community. Thanks to all of those who sent emails and gave feedback. The following people have put in their free time to help make this tool the best it can be.

The Goal

The goal of this tool to help new and intermediate players make wise character choices that help them pick a well-balanced team. I hope to ultimately improve the quality of pub play. My goal is to keep the metrics used to only quantifiable/semi-quantifiable data, and to keep the tool as simple and as easy to use as possible.

If you have any feedback or want to get involved, shoot me an email at [ellisd23] at [gmail] [dot] [com].

To do:

I'd like to get to all of these at some point.

  • Ability to search by Dota 1 names
  • Figure out a better UX for showing stats on heroes. Right now they're hard to scan.
  • Add hero "peaking" (i.e. when they are strong throughout the game)
  • Add farm dependency
  • Dim characteres who have roles filled
  • Show heroes in Valve's grid display format
  • Show lane matchups
