Why is Meepo so unpopular?
This agility hero is a crowd favourite, however not many can play it and never many most likely will. Meepo is very advanced and distinctive which additionally signifies that it’s situational. The hero wasn’t even contested at The Worldwide 10, alongside 6 different heroes. With how the meta is evolving, additionally it is onerous to suit Meepo in as a result of it’s such a grasping midlaner. If the hero is current in your workforce, the offlane and carry may need to share or sacrifice a portion of their farm.

symmetrical: “You simply want the correct lineup to go with Meepo.”
Former offlaner for Alliance, Moiez “symetricaL” Lin , thinks the hero is viable however provided that the participant is a Meepo spammer and they’re comfy taking part in it in a aggressive match – and that will be uncommon since Meepo is such a distinct segment hero.
“On this present meta, you normally don’t see these sort of grasping mid heroes anymore. The pos 3 and the pos 1 have extra precedence in farm so u have to be a Meepo spammer or one thing to even consider drafting it.”

He additional clarified that he has no real interest in the hero and he, the truth is, despises it. “I don’t play that hero and I sort of hate this hero if each my opponent or my teammates decide it in pubs.”
