I'd figured I'd make a fun thread here to lighten the mood and do something different on the Misc forum. If it gets locked, then whatever. I'll probably make it on Playdota instead.
There's currently 13 heroes left to be ported into Dota 2 before the game is finished. Even though it's likely that new heroes will be added before all of these current heroes are added, I figured I'd make a thread where people can mention which heroes they are looking forward to being ported into Dota 2. I'll start by posting my list of heroes I want to see added to Dota 2 in order of my preference. The 1st on the list is the hero I want most and 13th will be the hero I want least.
Everybody can post their own numbered lists for the heroes they want to see. I'll check in once or twice a day to tally your votes and rank every based on overall popularity. I'll allocate points to each hero and we'll see what heroes are most in demand. 1st picks are worth 13 points, 13th picks are worth 1 point. You can also talk about the unreleased heroes or have discussions about them if you like.
Edit: Also, if any of these heroes get added and the thread is still relevant, I'll go back and edit the released heroes off of the list. I'll take the time to redistribute all of the points properly on my spreadsheet so the remaining heroes are properly ranked. We can then continue voting from there.
1/9/13 - Medusa was added on test and retired at #5 (out of 15.)
1/23/13 - Troll Warlord was added on test and was retired at #2 (out of 14.)
1. You can post whichever heroes you want to see or play, even if you have never played them. Whatever interests you is fair game. Current hero progress doesn't have to matter.
(Example: Everybody expected Medusa to come out soon and everybody wanting techies has practically become a meme, but this doesn't mean you have to rate those kinds of heroes high just to be trendy.)
2. When posting your list, you must list all 13 heroes that haven't been added yet. Reference http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Unreleased_Content or lists below if needed.
(I've made a couple of exceptions so far, but only for posters that have listed 12-13 heroes. I won't make any guesses for you or fill in your blanks, but I also won't deny you if you want to throw away your votes if you really don't give a damn. :P I'll fix common sense errors, but even though these rankings are for fun, i'm still not going to skew them just because you're feeling lazy.)
3. Don't double post or list the same hero twice. I won't count it.
(You can redo your votes by posting a 2nd time with a complete list. You can do this in case you wanted to troll post at first (or messed up) and you seriously came back and wanted to participate for real. Since I have the data in a spreadsheet I can take the time to edit your ranks. I'll count your most recent post and disregard your older one.)
4. Avoid using abbreviations and acronyms if you can, but I'll try my best to keep track since I know most of the nicknames/names.
(It's mostly to make it easier and faster to read the text and enter the data in.)
5. Try numbering your list if possible. (1. 2. 3. etc.) If you don't number them, I'll read them from top -> down (most favorite -> least favorite.)
(This is also to make it easier and faster for me to punch in the data.)
6. If you add a hero that's already been released, I'll skip over it and continue in order.
