The story we've been told is that the current code makes sorting on the hero selection screen extremely difficult. I don't get that but disputing it gets us nowhere so let's accept that story for the time being. Given that hero sorting is out of scope for the forseeable future, I still don't get why we can't get other quality of life improvements. For instance:
Let me long press a selected hero and drag them around within the lineup. So if I want to flip around koros and emily in my lineup I don't need to remove koros and go back to the horrible hero selection mess to try and track down koros again.
Let me save teams. There's like maybe 5 teams I use for PVE, 2 teams I use for tower, and maybe 5-6 I use in PVP. Give me a way to save teams for easy selection and reuse and I'll rarely have to go back to the hero selection menu again.
Filtering options. There are already levels in the game where all my green/red/goblin/warrior/etc. type heroes float to the top and all the rest become greyed out. Give us access to that. Add buttons or something on the top that let users choose a type of hero and filter the hero selection menu to that type of hero by greying out all the others in the same way. Then on those special levels where you can only pick goblins or whatever you can just pre-select gobbos from the filtering options and disable the user's ability to change it.
All three of these would make our lives much easier and none involve changing the sorting algorithm. Are all of these also too difficult? Hero selection is a core part of like everything in this game. It's absolutely insane that it is godawful and we've had zero improvements in that area.
