Overwatch hero rotation for May 4-11 has banned another four heroes. For the first time ever, the weekly bans will not affect most players.

The Overwatch hero rotation system has changed completely for this week's bans. Heroes will be banned based solely on professional players in the Overwatch League. This will continue until the end of the season and then it will swap back. This week's bans will only exist in Master and Grandmaster level games.

Tank

  • Reinhardt

Damage

  • Reaper
  • Ashe

Support

  • Brigitte

The pros are losing some of their favorite heroes this week. Last week, Reinhardt was the most picked main tank, and Brigitte was the most picked support. Professional players have lost two of their favorite shield carrying heroes.

The removal of Ashe is not much consolation for Echo and Pharah players since McCree and Widowmaker are returning from their ban last week. Reaper will no longer be in competitive games, but Mei will still be around to make life difficult for heroes that can't fly.
