After three days of Bali Major action, Morphling continues to maintain a 100% pick and ban record
As the Bali Major 2023 progresses, Dota 2 enthusiasts are treated to a series of exhilarating games during the group stages. Quest Esports, who turned heads with their debut DPC WEU tour campaign, continued their remarkable form in Indonesia to claim the Group B top spot as of writing, while Team Liquid are leading the pack in Group A.
The tournament has also borne witness to the ascendance of a hero who has seized control of each and every game. Even though only three days of the group stages have gone by, a considerable number of matches have already been contested. Morphling has become the most highly sought-after hero, with teams opting to ban or pick the hero in all of the 96 games played in the first three days of the tournament.

Among the matches played up to this point, Morphling was opted for in 40 instances, boasting a commendable 52.50% win rate. The participating teams at the Major were well aware of the hero's prowess in the current meta, leading to a total of 59 bans targeted towards Morphling. The hero's soaring popularity at the tournament serves as a testament to its adaptability and significant influence within the game, firmly establishing it as the most highly contested hero at the Bali Major 2023.
Despite Morphling's presence in every game at the Bali Major, the hero's win rate falls short when compared to other prominent picks in this tournament and others, such as Anti-Mage and Phantom Lancer at Dreamleague Season 20.
Slark has a 100% win rate in Bali Major so far, but it has only been picked 7 times and it has a poor contest rate of 31.31%. Windranger has a 87.50% success rate and Doom boasts a 84.21%, but the contest rates for them are only 15.15% and 50.51% respectively.
