This page will always show the latest Heroes of the Storm Tier List for casual, Quick Match play.  If you are looking for a Ranked  alternative you can visit the Heroes of the Storm Tier List for ranked page.  

This Heroes of the Storm Tier List is designed to rank Heroes in terms of their strength in the current meta. Although some Heroes are considered poor or balanced, those that aren't Tier S or A+ shouldn't be considered poor. While any match can be won with any Hero, this list is designed to present you with the strongest for Quick Match (which is pretty random at the best of times).

Tier List Descriptors

Tier S+ - Greatly Overpowered. These Heroes are undeniably too strong and can be placed in any composition and succeed.

Tier S - Overpowered. Heroes which are often first pick, first ban material and are considered top tier. 

Tier A+ - Slightly Overpowered. Just above the point balance, these Heroes should see only minor changes.

Tier A - Balanced. These Heroes should see few if any changes.  

Tier B - Slightly Underpowered. These Heroes are good, but often require a highly skilled individual to get the most out of them. 

Tier C - Underpowered. Considered weak, team compositions generally need to be built around a Heroes in this pool. Rarely, if ever, seen in competitive play. 

Tier D Greatly Underpowered. These Heroes are not considered viable. 

Awaiting Placement

Tier List Movement ⬆⬇

Moved Mephisto to A+ Tier. Hard to pin down in a Quick Match environment, he can boss a back-line with ease before retreating comfortably. 

Moved Tyrande to A+ Tier. An amazing support that deals not-too-shabby DPS.

Moved Mal'ganis to S Tier. He can pretty much hard-carry a Quick Match based on the fact if he doesn't have a healer, he still has amazing sustain. 

Moved Orphea to Awaiting Placement.
