Dota 2 Pro Hero Lists

This is a quick summary of the most popular heroes for each month. The idea is that this page can be used as a very quick way of finding out who the most popular heroes have been over the years. Because it’s text and not images, it means you can also search via ctrl + f.

It’s done on Picks + Bans according to datDota and DotaAcademy in one bite sized location.
