Ok, if you sampled 20 people and 2 of them were playing healers, that means 10%? A healer on one team in every game? Seems like they are pretty useful if they're getting that much play, considering the general "elite" player mentality is to play carries and wreck everything.
Perhaps healers are not as useful as I originally claim at high ELO play, but from what I've seen health/heal stacking dominates all unorganized play. Maybe the very high ELO players that organize together can coordinate a burst down of it better, and thus use the higher damage heroes. :/ Still though, there's a healer in every high-elo game according to your sample, obviously some of the better players think they're useful.
Trynd is kind of a tank also, he can soak a *lot* of damage.
TF is broken and universally banned in tournament play for this patch (so I'm told), so for non-tournament MM I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him highly in use for High ELO players; they'd be handicapping themselves not taking him, right?
