Here are some of the most successful heroes in the Dota 2 Patch 7.33e meta so far.
The Riyadh Masters 2023 is ending, and the best Dota 2 teams in the world are slowly preparing for The International. People who want to rank up and reach the Divine/Immortal bracket are paying close attention to the most popular picks, especially those with the highest win rate.
Even though the professional meta is usually slightly different than the one in PUB games, you can find a lot of heroes that overlap. Let’s break down the best Dota 2 heroes in Patch 7.33e to pick right now.
If we look at the Dota 2 heroes with the best win rate in the Dota 2 patch 7.33e, we can see that Legion Commander is among the best. The hero appeared multiple times at the Riyadh Masers 2023 with a more than 70% win rate, but his pub-game stats are even more impressive. According to the statistics, Legion Commander has around 54.86% win rate in the Divine/Immortal bracket, which is impressive, to say the least.
There are several reasons why this is one of the most successful picks you can get right now. The obvious one is that Duel is overpowered, especially against some setups. We can see that many professional teams and high-level Dota 2 PUB squads prefer to pick one solid core and four heroes to help him. In situations like these, Legion Commander is among the best heroes you can have because of her ability to duel that target and kill it.
While talking about Duel, this ability allows LC to snowball. Once the hero gets to a specific bonus damage, she can kill almost everyone in seconds. Of course, Legion is also a solid laner that can survive against pretty much anything.
Currently, most people use Legion Command in the offlane. Yet, this is one of the heroes that can fit into many other roles, including mid/carry. With that said, other carries are better at this position.
Since we were on the topic of other carries, we need to address the most successful Dota 2 Patch 7.33e meta-hero in the Immortal/Divine Bracket. With more than a 55% win rate, there is no arguing that Naga is the queen of PUB Dota 2 right now. But that’s not all because this hero is among the best in pro games.
A quick look at the Riyadh Masters 2023 reveals that Naga has more than a 70% win rate in the games it was a part of. This result was achieved by utilizing the hero’s farming capabilities and her late-game potential.
Since patch 7.33 was released and the Dota 2 map gained additional camps, it has become clear that fast-farming cores would shine. Although we had to wait around a month, Naga Siren finally appeared on the big stage, and it’s safe to say she is among the best carries you can have right now.
Although you need to have some sort of micro skills to be able to use the hero properly, she’s not that hard to master. The ultimate is among the few things you need to focus on because it’s potent, and using it correctly can make a huge difference.
The first two picks on the list had impressive stats in PUBs and professional games. However, some names in the Dota 2 Patch 7.33e meta only work in PUBs, at least according to the stats.
Meepo is the first hero that people think of because he’s always been a pub stomper. This is probably the single-best pick when you want to boost yourself, assuming you know how to play. Meepo is a complex hero that requires a lot of micro-skills, even though the last couple of updates made him a bit easier to play.
Interestingly, Meepo has less than a 45% win rate in the professional meta, whereas his PUB stats show he’s up there with Naga (around 55%). One of the reasons for this significant difference is that professional Dota 2 squads now know how to play against him and what to pick to shut him down. Despite being strong, Meepo is a hero who can be countered in many ways, especially by heroes such as Earthshaker, Invoker, and more.
Finally, we have one of the preferred offlaners in every skill bracket, including professional Dota 2 games. With more than 50 appearances at the Riyadh Masters 2023, Dark Seer became one of the critical picks of the tournament and a hero that many teams use in their strategies. Unsurprisingly, he is also among the top Dota 2 Patch 7.33e meta heroes you can have.
Even though the 51%ish percentage win rate in professional matches may not impress some of you, Dark Seer’s 54.60% win rate in the Immortal/Divine bracket must be addressed. It seems like the hero works well in the meta because he can farm the side lanes and his lane. He is also an excellent pick alongside aggressive meta carries such as Slark, Ursa, Naga and more.
The only problem with Dark Seer is that the hero needs items to be effective. As a result, he is not the best option to have in every meta, especially when you are playing against an aggressive duo lane that prevents you from farming and going into the jungle.
