In this Heroes of the Storm counterpicks guide - as an accompaniment to our Heroes of the Storm Tier List. This list is intended to be used when playing Hero League, at the draft screen. As a quick reference guide, it's designed to give you a platform to make your draft decision. I'll stress that these recommended counterpicks are based off my own experienced of Heroes of the Storm up to Grand Master ranking. There are variables and typically, I'll attempt to stick to no more than 4 recommended counterpicks. Be aware that those recommended as Hero Counters is also due to a collection of factors: damage, mobility, utility.

Finally, if you've any suggestions on which Heroes you think are strong against who, let me know in the comments below.
