Why hots draft?

This mathematical tool helps you draft heroes by answering various question you may ask yourself during draft sequence.
  • Does this hero fit my team comp? Is there some synergy between our picks?
  • Does this hero counters enemy picks?
  • Is this hero weak versus enemy heroes?
  • Does this hero fit the map?
  • This hero is not one of my main ones but is it worth it to play it in this context (map/enemies/synergy)?
  • Do we have and need a solo laner?
  • Do we have enough waveclear for the map or their split push picks?
  • Do we have heroes good at doing merc camps?
  • Would it be nice to have a global?
  • They drafted two solid tanks, do we counter that?
  • Would it be nice to have a mage to counter these lili/artanis picks?
  • And so on ...
Mathematical algorithm that determines best options based on personnal datas

Better drafting is better chances at winning. This website will evaluate for you a ranking for every remaining hero that you own and can play well enough.
You will be given in real time the ordered list by algorithm ranking of heroes as the draft goes on based on all given parameters. Make you choice between top ranked suggested heroes and adapt your pick with one of the few heroes that fit the best!
