    Bonus point if you know what this is arranged by.
    Obviously I'm expecting comments & suggestios for improvements, albeit this is more of others than myself.

    Swap PA with Lycan.

    Group heroes by stat in their respected groups.

    Idk and Idc by what standards you arranged it, but it sucks. Having big lumps of pictures doesn't maintain order, and you'll spend more time looking for the hero you want than you'd ever wish for.
    Mine isn't perfect since I got to many carries mashed up into one big lump, but than again, I don't play carry very often. Here is mine, everything is separate, and if I find a hero picked from one category, I will usually pick one from a different category, works fine:

    Then I'd rather use the default layout.
    @VileCat: If you don't comprehend then it kinda lost it point, don't you think?

    You have 4 groups of 15+ heroes, you should sort them in some way familiar to you, it doesn't have to be by attributes, it can be some other value.

    I... think I already did.
    Still, sorting THAT by attributes might seem like a fine idea.

    Heroes I'd move one group to the left: Ursa, Tinker, Sven, Zeus, Seer, Omni.
    Heroes I'd move one group to the right: Kunkka, Bane, Lion, Shaker, Doctor.

    To me, your sorting doesn't look very logical, or consistent. I can see you put carries on the very left side, but for some reason you leave some carries out for no reason. How is for example clinkz, lone druid and sniper more valid as carry than naix and slardar?

    And again: Having big lumps together doesn't really maintain order for the mind. If the argument is: You gotta have one from all these groups, than still, you might want it different.

    I'm sorry what?
    Also, no bonus points for you.

    I don't get these organised layouts. I have about 10 heroes in a line along the bottom, those are the ones I play 90% of the time. The rest of the heroes are all in a big fat block with no ordering whatsoever. Why do they need to be structured, I barely play any of them.

    Axe under shit that never should be touched? :/

    Also why doesn't anyone like the default layout anyways?

    That system is highly dependant on your lineup.
    For example, I would never run SD as a 4, in certain lineups he's 5 oder 3. Ohter examples come to my mind, too.

    + I'm sceptic about this interface generally... It's a nice addition, however I don't see a reason to 'sort' your heroes in a special way. DotA in general is to complex to pigeonhole (I hope people actually use this expression, never heard it before seeing it on my translator page...) heroes.
    Highlight your heroes, fine, why not?
    Sort heroes according to their role? Meh...

    Because it can be customized.
    Honestly, the fact that I myself don't agree with the layout itself in a lot of points simply speak on how a little number of heroes are able to fill the specific position. I mean seriously, have you looked at those numbers?

    ^ That list, unfortunately, has no real apparent impact on gameplay nor can it be applied to practically anybody else.

    Obviously I don't wanna make it too good or it could get nerfed
