At the conclusion of the Watchpoint: Hero Pool Draw immediately following Week 5’s matches, the four heroes that will be banned or disabled in Week 6 of the OWL were announced. These four heroes were chosen from a selection of heroes receiving over 10% of playtime in the OWL. While a couple of them had received much more than that, a couple of others hadn’t seen much more than 10% playtime thus far.
Week 6 Banned Heroes
DPS: Sombra and Soldier: 76
For Week 6, the following teams will be playing with the above-listed bans:
- Toronto Defiant
- Florida Mayhem
- Paris Eternal
- Boston Uprising
- Washington Justice
- Philadelphia Fusion
- Atlanta Reign
- London Spitfire
Also, as a reminder, these are not the same bans as Overwatch’s Competitive play. Those will be altered each week and can be found in our constantly updated hero pool article. Stay tuned for more on hero pools for Overwatch, the OWL and much more here at The Game Haus.
