We all know that there’s great satisfaction in the afterglow of a good Dota 2 match. Sometimes, instead of queuing up, you just want to bask in your post-game analytics, browse some stats, and pat yourself (and teammates) on the back.
Here’s how to access your post-game analytics, whether it’s in game or outside of it.
How to view post-game analytics in-game
When you click on the match you want to see post-game stats for, you will see a whole host of options in the top left corner.
The scoreboard will go into more details about the match, showing item builds and consumed, kill, deaths, and assists, and stats such as net worth, GPM, and, XPM.
The graphs tab will show the net worth and experience of the entire team over the course of the match, which you can use to chart pivotal swings.
The breakdowns tab is only for Dota Plus users. Here, you can see the damage dealt to each hero, split into individual damage sources like spells, auto attacks, and items.
The MVP screen will show the most valuable player of the match, determined by a post-match algorithm, as well as two honorable mentions.
For a short summary of the three, Dotabuff is probably the most popular, but a Plus subscription (not related to Valve’s one) is required to unlock some paywalls.
OpenDota is open source and comes with more features, including a nice story tab that quickly summarizes each game, and fantasy score breakdowns that can help you construct your rosters for some rewards.
Stratz has a neat IMP score that quickly indicates performance at a glance, along with other innovative features like full minimap playback inside the client itself, good for watching through games quickly.
All three are robust, full-featured sites, and you won’t go wrong with any of them. Play around with them and see which one you prefer.
If you are using these sites mainly for your personal account, you might see that your account doesn’t have updated information. If that’s the case, you might need to expose public match data in your Dota 2 client.
How to expose public match data
These external sites need your account to be public in order to parse your matches and display information.
The option is available in the settings, under the Social tab. You might need to go to your stats site of choice and refresh for them to pull your latest match data.
