DISCLAIMER: ANY HERO CAN BE USED TO CLIMB, AND CAN BE EFFECTIVE IN MOST SITUATIONS. MY TIER LISTS ARE PURELY FROM MY PERSPECTIVE OF THE META WHEN IT COMES TO COORDINATED PLAY.
Updated 09 October 2019
These offlaners are powerful in-lane and in fights. They help their team by providing utility and additional frontline
Very solid picks, normally map dependent.
* Zeratul is extremely powerful, and is A Tier as a hero. He should generally not be played in the offlane, but can and has been, hence him being here.
Strong picks for certain enemies, generally these picks are to counter a certain enemy. Ranged assassins in this list are included when you want your second frontline with the group, or just need a ranged damage to take the offlane position for a game.
* The Lost Vikings and Samuro are dependent on map and skill level.
These heroes can get tons of value at lower levels, but offer little more than postponing the result of a game or fight in more coordinated play, due to extreme weakness to CC, lack of mobility, or other issues which make them super susceptible to today's meta.
We still don't like you, Murky.
Note: Any heroes not on this list should either not used to fill the offlane position, or just aren't offlaners at all. (Or I forgot them. That's possible too.)
