There are three main sites for post-game analytics: Dotabuff, OpenDota, and Stratz.
Dotabuff is probably the most famous, but a Plus subscription (not related to Valve’s one) is required to unlock some paywalls.
OpenDota is open source with more features, such as a nice story tab that quickly summarizes each game, and fantasy score breakdowns that can assist you to construct your rosters for some rewards.
Stratz has a neat IMP score that quickly indicates performance at a glance, alongside other innovative features like full minimap playback inside the client itself, good for watching through games quickly.
All three are dependable, full-featured sites, and you can’t go wrong to play around with them to see which one you prefer.
Just keep in mind that these external sites require your account to be public in order to parse your matches and display information.
