Overwatch hero rotation for May 18-25 have not yet been announced. Hero bans have had a rocky start, but appear to be sticking around as they are now until the end of the Overwatch League season. The hero bans continue to only apply to matches with an SR over 3500. The hero bans are random, but influenced by how much heroes are played in the Overwatch League.

Overwatch Hero Rotation: Hero Bans for May 18-25

Blizzard was running behind with the hero bans for Week 16. The delay could be because of the Overwatch Anniversary event set to begin on May 19. The patch will be bringing other changes to the game, like communication wheel changes, that might be delaying the hero ban process. Or perhaps an unexpected bug or glitch is occupying the Overwatch development team.

The hero bans for Week 16 still follow the same format as previous weeks with one tank hero, two damage heroes, and one support being banned. Overwatch league players are used to the adaptation that each week requires. The ever-changing meta keeps the game feeling fresh and punishes one-trick players. Overwatch has decided that the most skilled players also need to be the most diverse to stay at the top.
