What Heroes are Banned for Week 6 of the OWL?

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.
