The highly popular MOBA game Heroes of the Storm is currently within full swing of 2019’s third season. With that in mind, let’s take a look at how each and every hero within the massive title fits in this meta’s tier list.

Blizzard Entertainment has crafted a bevy of impressive titles over the years. Overwatch, Diablo, Warcraft and Starcraft are just some of the titles to come from this talented team. Combining their most popular games, the development company eventually released the hit MOBA game Heroes of the Storm in 2015.

The player can control characters from across many of Blizzard Entertainment’s franchises within Heroes of the Storm, allowing popular heroes such as Overwatch’s Tracer or Diablo’s Deckard Cain to once again take the spotlight. While the game features a bevy of heroes, it turns out that not all heroes are created equal.

Check out the tier list for 2019’s Heroes of the Storm season 3 down below. Just before diving into the list, however, read about each tier description here.

Tier List Descriptions

  • Tier S — Often first pick or first ban, these heroes are highly popular. Incredibly strong, these characters are sure to turn the tide of battle.
  • Tier A — While not as powerful as the S tier heroes, these characters are still quite strong. Common picks and common bans, these heroes are often safe choices to play.
  • Tier B — Capable and reliable, these heroes are balanced and fair. While not as commonly picked or banned as S or A tier heroes, these heroes are still competent choices.
  • Tier C — Not as popular in the current meta, these heroes are less likely to be picked or banned. Beyond that, these heroes also demand high levels of skill in order to be used properly.
  • Tier D —  The least common picks or bans, these heroes are considered to be the least popular. These heroes are also considered to be less effective than other characters.

This tier list was last updated to represent the changes provided by the patch notes from September 24, 2019 and to include the newest character Qhira.

Hunter Boyce is a writer, which probably seems pretty obvious with "author" prominently displayed. He mostly writes about video games. However, he was previously a mixed martial arts news writer. When not writing about people pelting each other in the face or about leveling up in the latest RPG, he tends to spend his time as a web producer in Atlanta. You can shout all of your MMA and video game related quandaries at him at @SomthinClever on Twitter. Feel free to make your demands to him in ALL CAPS. He loves that.
