Dote Night: Which Role Should You Play In Dota 2?

Ready to role

Part of a miscellany of serious thoughts, animal gifs, and anecdotage from the realm of MOBAs/hero brawlers/lane-pushers/ARTS/tactical wizard-em-ups. One day Pip might even tell you the story of how she bumped into Na’Vi’s Dendi at a dessert buffet cart.

Today Twitter had a meltdown over the existence of a magazine about YouTubers called Oh My Vlog. You can pretty much guess at the reactions. The reason that I bring it up is that it prompted me to take my first internet quiz in about ten years.

Suddenly I was seized by curiosity. Were there Dota 2 quizzes? There must be! This is the internet, there's a quiz for everything.

A quick search proved this to be true. There was even one on OKCupid (although I don't really understand what OKCupid quizzes about Dota 2 are supposed to do - pair a carry with a support or something?). Most were trivia quizzes or variations on "Which hero are you?".

"Maybe this is where I can use my hundreds of game hours for good," I thought. I can finally help thousands - no, MILLIONS - of people with their Dota via a quiz! It was all so simple.

And thus I present to you a quiz to help you pick a role in Dota 2. It is objectively accurate, scientifically correct and legally binding*.
