Gorgc ranked Juggernaut and Bristleback as the best heroes in his tier list.

Along with attracting a large audience, Twitch livestreamer and Team Bald Reborn carry player Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski has also gained popularity for creating tier lists for players and teams. During his recent livestream, Gorgc compiled another tier list; this time he classified carry heroes into various tiers based on their strength in the ongoing patch 7.31d. Gorgc worked with goonsquad’s carry player Charlie "CharlieDota" Arat (also known as "aQua") in determining the tiers for a total of 37 heroes. There were six tiers in total with D being the lowest level and S being the highest level.

While livestreaming the Team Liquid vs Team Secret series on 28th June, Gorgc proceeded to make a carry tier list for the current patch. Out of the 123 heroes in Dota 2, he placed only 37 that he thought were viable for the safelane role in 7.31d.

S Tier

Gorgc placed Juggernaut and Bristleback in the S tier. According to him, Juggernaut is the best carry in the current patch. The hero’s increase in popularity has likely been the result of his inherent Black King Bar (BKB) with Blade Fury, as well as his ability to heal himself during the laning stage with Healing Ward in a patch where BKB’s cooldown has been increased and Healing Salves on allies have been drastically nerfed. Juggernaut’s toolkit has gotten a lot more potent in the current patch.

A Tier

A total of seven heroes were in the second best tier - A tier. Alchemist was the best hero in the A tier, while Templar Assassin came in eighth.

B Tier

There were a total of 13 heroes placed in the B tier. Chaos Knight was the best hero here while Ursa came in 13th.

C Tier

A total of 10 heroes were in the C tier with Kunkka at the top and Spectre at the bottom. All these heroes are rarely seen being played in pro and high ranked games these days.

D Tier

Four heroes were placed in the D tier with Riki being on top and Drow Ranger at the bottom.

E Tier

The only hero present in the E tier was Anti-Mage, which Gorgc believes is the weakest carry in patch 7.31d. Interestingly, in a recent Team Spirit YouTube video, The International 10 (TI10) winning carry Illya "Yatoro" Mulyarchuk named Anti Mage as one of the three finest carry heroes in 7.31d, alongside Sven and Morphling.

While patch 7.31d was released on June 8th, the strongest carry heroes in the meta are still in the discovery stage. During drafts, teams have begun to favor the ability to flex heroes in various roles above selecting the carry hero outright. As a result, in the Western Europe (WEU) Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021-22 Tour 3, heroes such as Monkey King, Tiny, Razor, and Dawnbreaker have been heavily prioritized due to their versatility to be played as a carry as well as in other roles.
