The most important aspect of playing a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) like Dota 2 is selecting the right hero.
These unique characters range from magical tacticians to fierce brutes and cunning rogues.
The game’s hero pool is massive and limitlessly diverse, with each character able to unleash incredible abilities and devastating ultimates on their way to victory.
With more heroes joining the vast roster each year, players need to learn and understand which characters to pick to suit their playstyle.
Dota 2 made its first appearance to the public at Gamescom in 2011 with the inaugural International Championship (TI1).
The tournament became Valve’s premier esports tournament event, and the game was officially released on July 9, 2013, after two years of beta testing.
The MOBA title’s characters are split into three categories: intelligence, strength, and agility. They all possess incredible abilities and overwhelming ultimates that they can unleash to devastate their opponents.
As of patch 7.32e, the game has 124 playable characters in total with 44 intelligence, 42 strength, and 38 agility heroes.
The game’s latest addition is Muerta, which was released on March 7, 2023.

For other who played Heroes of New Earth, it so similar to Gun Blade from the past most played alternative to Dota.
Dota 2’s hero roster is welcoming a new addition early next year.
After the all-star match on the final day of The International 2022, Valve introduced Muerta, a new Dota 2 hero that looks inspired by popular Latin American holiday called Día de los Muertos.
She is the second character to be added to the game’s cast of heroes this year, following Primal Beast, who was released on February 23, 2023.
he new hero was introduced to the live and online audience in TI11 through a short 50-second teaser video.
Muerta, translated from Spanish to English, means dead woman. Her design is taken straight out of the Day of the Dead holiday that originated in Mexico, where families and friends gather to pay respects to those who’ve passed away.
People honor their deceased with many different decorated skulls and Aztec marigold flowers, which can be seen throughout Muerta’s motif.
At first glance, the hero sounds very disgruntled with the living and the dead. It seems like the character will be an assassin-type hero who uses a flintlock pistol that glows in the moonlight.
Muerta showcased her undead power at the end of the trailer, switching to a different form with ghosts surrounding her.
