With tour 1 well underway, a new Dota 2 DPC meta has emerged across the different regions. Fans can certainly expect to see these heroes in their pubs for the foreseeable future, although the success may be a little more unpredictable.

Dota 2, a popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, has a vast and ever-evolving roster of heroes for players to choose from. Each hero has their own unique abilities and playstyle, making them suitable for different roles and strategies. In this article, we will take a look at the top 5 Dota 2 heroes currently in the meta.

Rubick

Rubick has placed in the top 5 most popular heroes in all of the 6 regions, making him the most picked hero in this Dota 2 DPC meta. His ability to steal the huge ults of other popular heroes including Tusk and Snapfire makes him a formidable foe during team fights.

Tusk

Tusk is known for its ability to initiate fights and control the battlefield. Fans have seen many a snowball save in recent matches. He’s also a flexi hero, meaning he can be played in most roles from a solo mid to a greedy 5. In the current Dota 2 DPC meta, teams are looking for a strong ganker and a great team fighter and Tusk certainly fills that role.

Tiny

Barely a DPC meta goes by that doesn’t include Tiny. Having made a particular showing in the Chinese region, Tiny is another flexi hero who ranges across pretty much any position on the field. A well timed Avalanche can act as a strong initiation as well as help with crowd control.

Treant Protector

When it comes to supports, there are none stronger at the moment than Treant Protector. From China to Europe, it seems a lot of the top teams in the world are making use of TP’s ability to AOE stun and damage heroes with his ultimate, Overgrowth. His ability to easily traverse the map while invisible.

Snapfire

It seems the name of the game is flexi heroes this Dota meta. Snapfire is another hero who can dominate mid lanes, tank the offlane and support well. She has a reliable stun in the form of Firesnap Cookie and an enormous ult that comes from her trusty steed, Mortimer. This isn’t her first rodeo in a pro meta, either!

Dota 2 DPC Meta - ever changing concepts

These 5 heroes are currently among the most powerful and popular in the current Dota 2 DPC meta, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles. They are great choices for players who are looking for a versatile, flexible, and powerful hero that can help turn the tide of a game. And with constant updates and new heroes coming in Dota 2, the meta is always shifting and new strategies and heroes will emerge in the future, especially as teams begin to gear up for the Lima Major next month.
