The Overwatch league is back with Week 19 and it's Summer Showdown. We had just wrapped May Melee and then took a few weeks off to allow for the teams to rest and now it is time for a return. We have all the details about Week 19 right here!
Hero pools are an algorithm-driven way to figure out which heroes are being played the most and remove them from play for the next week. There is an element of randomness, but heroes with a higher play-rate will have a higher chance of being banned. There is one exception and that is if a hero was banned last week, they cannot be banned again the next week.
The four heroes that will be banned for Week 19 play are:
There were no bans last week as Overwatch League took the last two weeks off from competitive play.
