The hero bans for Week 20 of the Overwatch League might be very familiar, but the 13 huge match-ups we have this week are brand new and we have the time-converted start times for you!
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 20 play are the same as Week 19:
Seoul Dynasty vs. Guangzhou Charge
London Spitfire vs. Chengdu Hunters
Hangzhou Spark vs. New York Excelsior
San Francisco Shock vs. Paris Eternal
Atlanta Reign vs. Toronto Defiant
Los Angeles Gladiators vs. Houston Outlaws
Dallas Fuel vs. Vancouver Titans
Guangzhou Charge vs. Hangzhou Spark
Chengdu Hunters vs. Shanghai Dragons
New York Excelsior vs. London Spitfire
Boston Uprising vs. Philadelphia Fusion
Los Angeles Valiant vs. Florida Mayhem
Washington Justice vs. San Francisco Shock
