My favorite hero in this game: Rhasta - Shadow Shaman! It is in the first DOTA that he is the best, his funny accent, humor, just amazing! And the appearance fits) And the best thing is, he is very strong, he strikes enemies with lightning (POWERFUL AND A LOT OF THEM!), Turns enemies into roosters (most real, chickens, to be more precise), binds the enemy with a FIRE NET and, of course, summons an army of FIRE SNAKES! Wonderful hero, it's a shame those pleasant evenings are already over.
In my opinion, the most interesting hero in Dota is Rubik. First of all, because you never get tired of playing for him. This hero is moderately difficult, but despite his frailty and lack of mobility to the point of blinking, he can make a huge impact at all stages of the game. After 430 games on Rubik, I still want to play for him again and again. But don't take this hero against Tini or Viper, these bastards will kill you first :)
Real cats play for supports or for extreme solo hardliners. Selfish carries go through the forest, and in the literal sense: to farm. For the nightingales and supports, it seems to me, much more interesting gameplay, when it’s like sweating ~ 40 minutes, taking out my precious items, I personally am not very interested.
From favorites and placed according to "love" - Phoenix (mid, for which you farm a little and fly to make double keels for lines to teammates, from late items - tarasque, sasha with yash and other items for right click and fatness), Enigma (exporting blink dagger and 7th level to 7 -th minute in the forest and, again, ganking like a beast, and a correctly placed blackhole in a 5v5 batch will make ALL your allies catch an orgasm at the same time), Dark Sir (you don't even need to farm for him, you just hang a shield on past a running creep and that's it, on you and the harass of melee opponents and the growth of gold is normal. Again, you run, gank, set your eyes, help the team win, in general), Dazl (the god of the save and generally a great guy) and the venomancer (who can make -5 with a combination of ult + 1 skill and then just a right click with one boot in and nventare).
Well, still a little invoker, but I'm 3.5k mmr garbage, so I can't play well for him. But its very good property - in general, you can swing into whoever you want: even as a pusher, at least as a support, at least in a carry, and so on with approximately the same items, and at the end of the game your leveling does not matter at all, your tasks are you you can change yourself during the game. And if you enter a party, then this is 100% death to enemies in the chronosphere and not only (the tempo will not get into the dome only it is very crooked, at the beginning of the game chronosphere + sunstrike = kill, alacrity is perfect for a larger number of dps, meteors-snaps-tornado-blasts will help sell enemies and / or slow / disable them to make it easier to hit with the chronosphere), in general, these two heroes are created for each other (invoker can go mid with exorte or support via vex-kvass on the line to I will go, but most often it is better to go to mid of course).
PS What does the "philosophy" tag do here?
I prefer Mortred - Phantom Assassin to the rest of the heroes. Beautiful and mysterious, she makes dozens of graceful kills every match. Well, if, of course, they give strength to gain :)
As such, I probably don't have a favorite hero, but there are several characters that I play with more pleasure than others. The list includes: Pudge, Windranger, Anti-Mage, Earthshaker, Enigma.
But if you choose your favorite, then let it be Pudge.
