Playing the Odds: 4 Strength & 1 Int hero = Win

Based on some number crunching at one time, and for Dota2 pub games, it seemed that teams with 4 Strength Heroes and 1 Intelligence hero did surprisingly well.

There's also a reddit post discussing the findings.

Note that ranged heroes are generally preferred to melee heroes, so it stands to reason that ranged strength heroes would also be quite strong, but there's aren't very many of them:
  • Phoenix
  • Io
  • Huskar
  • Dragonknight (Dragon Form only)

Here are some team suggestions for "4 Strength, 1 Int" Teams.

4 Str and 1 Int Hero:  Play the Odds
#1: Offlane Beastmaster, Lifestealer jungle, Huskar mid, Tiny + Lion safelane
#2: Dazzle + Centaur, Ursa jungle, Tidehunter solo, Necrolyte mid
#3:  Tidehunter offlane, Dragon Knight mid, Sand King + Chaos Knight + Dazzle
