DPC China Tour 3 Division I: Most popular heroes

DPC China (CN) Tour 3 Division I has ended and things are heating up just in time for the Arlington Dota 2 Major 2022.

Four teams: Royal Never Give Up, Team Aster, Xtreme Gaming and PSG.LGD secured a finish into the top 4 to qualify for the Arlington Major – the last Major before The International 11.

But to reach that point, every team had to battle it out through their unique strategy, utilizing heroes as per their best knowledge.

China is best known for housing the most powerful teams in the game and has consistently placed at the top in the majority of the competitions.

Here’s a list of the most popular heroes in the DPC China Tour 3 Division I:

Monkey King

The evasive immortal god features in the first spot with a 26% pick rate and 75% win rate.

The mischievous troublemaker is highly loved in the Eastern part of the world due to his insane manoeuvrability and high scaling potential.

He’s primarily used as carry but can also be used as a roamer/support, thanks to his abilities that provide vision – who wouldn’t love jumping from one tree to another and provide all the vision in the world?

Self-healing ability after a few auto attacks on the same enemy unit, or inflicting critical damage with Boundless Strike, or even zoning out enemies with his ultimate – defensively and offensively.

He’s very agile and a master at escaping. He deals an insane amount of damage and is very difficult to get hold of.

But that also makes him a hard hero to master.

His ultimate not only deals damage but also locks everyone in one place (for their own good), because if those caught enemies try to escape, the damage dealt is even more.

34% pick rate and 75% win rate.

Puck can turn around games single-handedly, especially when he goes on a rampage with early-level gains and itemization.

China though has a great track record with Puck historically as they have utilized the hero to its full potential consistently at every premium event.


Speaking of something unique, China is effectively utilizing Warlock, unlike other regions.

Warlock is as good a hero as they come – he can deal fatal damage by linking multiple enemy units in a bond, can heal his allies or himself or even cause damage to the enemy with the same skill, and can lethargically slow down the enemy in a radius by channeling Upheaval, or call down upon Golem from hell – stunning and burning the enemy in the process.

Warlock is extremely effective with aggressive heroes with high base damage or aggressive skills. He can easily manipulate a lane and give his team the advantage by pushing the lane and applying pressure on the enemy team.

Overall, an underrated and low-risk-high reward hero but extremely squishy as well.
