Many games were played, and finally we created the list of most hated DotA 2 heroes.
Every time you start a match in DotA 2 there is a hope for a game to be full of jokes and fun. But the existing reality is too far from such a dream: there are many heroes nobody would like to play against. We chose 10 most hated DotA 2 characters: you better prepare to long suffering when your opponents pick one of them.
There was a time when Underlord was taken away from the meta, but he always came back for revenge. He finally became an extremely fat guy having 57.3% winrate. And don’t forget about that big blue pit active for 12 complete seconds!
You enter the pit – you get frozen for 1.8 seconds. You enter again – you freeze again. Combined with the Rod of Atos, this ability brings opponents many movement problems. You can try trapping Underlord’s team in an ambush, but a huge Dark Rift range will take them away to the safe heaven. And you can’t interrupt or avoid that. HATE!
The Aghanim’s Scepter in Doom’s hands will prevent one hero of your team from casting spells until he or she dies (if stays in range).
A hero that looks useless and has the only disabling ability with 2-minute cooldown should enter such lists. That is why we mentioned Doom here.
A stun, a weakening, a ridiculous slowing ability and gigantic magic damage? Yes, that’s Invoker.
Most probably, Invoker in your team can cast only Sunstrike and Cold Snap, while in enemy’s crew his Tornado, Chaos Meteor, Deafening Blast and EMP are thrown perfectly. After that 25-level cooldown reduction for Tornado, there are not many characters which can be more hated than Invoker.
Here you enter mid lane with two Tangos stashed and a Healing Salve for emergency cases. You are ready to show your perfect one-on-one gaming skill. Bad news: you opponent is Outworld Devourer.
He looks like a dull fish first, but then he reaches level 7. His Astral Imprisonment ability can imprison you for 4 seconds with a 10 second cooldown. You’ll spend a half of you battle time shouting at the monitor and get 325 damage as a bonus. Pure HATE!
“It was funny once, but now it’s horrible”.
This character was created to disappoint players in duels. Of course, his attack range is not that big, but he destroys everyone who tries to attack him.
Add slow effects and a passive ability of HP reduction for both creeps and heroes, and you’ll get a real frustration machine.
“The player who picked Naga is the only player having fun in the game with Naga.”
Her opponents can only watch creeps disappearing slowly but surely. It is a suffering death when you see yourself in the middle of the fight just to see how two Naga’s illusions break your front door.
If you are that “happy” player having Naga on your side, there can be two ways. The first one: after 28 minutes of the game, your Naga finally has her Boots of Travel and Radiance. The second way is even more hopeless: you can’t kill enemy creeps while Naga “consumes” the map, the only thing you can do is wait till that player is ready to fight. HATE!
This character’s comeback to the pro scene led him almost to the top of out hated list. Two spam spells and 40% damage reduction from behind? Are you serious?
You’ll probably spend more time feeding Bristleback running from 4 heroes than trying to kill him.
On the lowest game levels where people don’t know how to buy revealing items, this hero is a dominator. On mid elo levels, where people don’t wan to buy dusts and pink wards, this hero stands out. On the highest elo, where people can avoid being revealed, Riki carries a huge damage to the economics of his opponents.
This invisible saboteur has a silencing ability and a totally irritating dodge. A single Dust of Appearance is usually not enough to counter him.
Have you ever been to the party where a certain guy always changes music tracks in the middle? Now imagine a creature which turns the music off for six seconds in every 2 minutes. That’s exactly a person picking Silencer.
We can’t say this was a tough choice. There shouldn’t be a hero able to stand in one corner of the map and to generate rage in the other one, but there he is. Lots of Techies’ explosives let him be extremely dangerous since early game stages.
Yes, the sound signal might warn you when there is the Proximity Mine nearby, but it is often just too late.
Ultimate hate prize winner!
