We delve into the hero stats behind the MDL. Which hero won more than 80% of his games? Was Invoker really that OP? Who finished a game with more than 20,000 gold?

It's important to bear in mind when looking at the stats for Earth Spirit, that they are not dwarfed as they were at the WCA 2015 by fi Jesse 'JerAx' Vainikka. Team Liquid did not compete in the MDL, and Earth Spirit was far from a niche pick. He was even run mid by ro Omar 'w33haa' Aliwifor one of the first times in competitive Dota 2.

Earth Spirit looks here to stay and the rise in his popularity could be responsible for Tusk's fall off. Tusk was the most picked hero at WCA 2015 in December but only featured in 14 games at the MDL, with a 5-9 record.

Although jo Amer 'Miracle-' Al-Barkawi's sick play on Invoker made the headlines (5-1 overall), the hero in fact had a mediocre MDL in terms of win-rate. Meanwhile, his team-mate il Tal 'Fly' Aizik's 6-0 on Vengeful Spirit is also a heavy factor in the hero's 62.9% win rate at the MDL.

Lone Druid's stats are probably the most impressive, especially considering se Henrik 'AdmiralBulldog' Ahnberg did not attend the event. The bear proved a big problem for many opponents, even for Evil Geniuses who run the hero for ca Artour 'Arteezy' Babaev. In the Grand Finals cn EHOME's Abaddon + Lone Druid Bear combo in game 2 was lethal, and the bear dealt a ridiculous 6,500 damage in one of the battles.
