We are currently working on starting a Weekly hero discussion.
We are aiming to bring you the Elite 5 of Heroes soon. The Elite 5 of Heroes will be selected based on in-game statistics of your choices and performances.

The weekly Elite 5 of Heroes will comprise of:

- Hero with the highest damage
- Hero with the most assists
- Hero with the most wins
- Most played hero
- Most banned hero

We can't wait to see how the Elite 5 changes each week and influences your decisions!


Please let us know what you think and watch this space!

OK.  What stat data can you share to demonstrate your certainty?  One caveat is that I only play on the US / mobile, so certain characters are not available.  

Obviously my post was partly in jest, but certainly not entirely.  Although I don't plot stats into excel as I play or have access to data logs, those 3 characters are OP and every one knows that.  Yes, this is anecdotal but I would love to see what the actual data shows to counter it.

they are OP on certain elos. Everyone says BF is OP but she does not even get picked in higher elos. Hence we think that each elo should have its own elite 5 as certain heroes may be OP on lower elos for example but aren't on higher elos and vice versa.

I'd like to delve into that rationale a bit, if you'll indulge me for a second.  Probably belongs on the BF / Murad thread but regardless.

I've seen this BF / Elo rationale before, on several threads.  It seems to be the de facto go-to counter argument any time a BF gripe is mentioned.  But let's break this down for a moment.  I'll caveat that I've only played the game on mobile / US for the few months it's been out. I made it up to mid-platinum in the 1st season, and I can tell you that BF was still a chronic snowball-ing problem, even within Plat.

The problem (for me) with the rationale that BF is "not OP at higher ELO's" is that the vast majority of players are not higher ELO players, they will never be higher ELO players.   I'm assuming (feel free to counter) that at higher ELO's, the players are more organized (on teams), there's more communication, so players can better coordinate themselves to identify or avoid BF when she's in the Lvl 4-6 range (when she seems to take over the game).  But my guess is, the average AoV player is not a Diamond or higher player, and it not on a team.  So while BF is a non-factor for a small fraction (what, less than 5%-10%?) of the community, she seems to be a divisive & frustrating character for the vast majority of people playing the game.  I think that's an issue.  If if the comments on this forum are any indication, I don't think I'm alone there.

Let me position the argument in a different way.  Where do most of the AOV profits stem from, the top ~ 10% of competitive players or the ~90% below them?

Hm... There seems to be a pretty good discussion point posted above your note, by your's truly.  Could we perhaps start the convo, there?
