Overwatch Hero Rotation: New Hero Bans for March 19-26

Out of Overwatch Competitive for the next week are the following heroes:

Tanks

  • Roadhog
  • Sigma

Damage

  • Doomfist

Support

  • Brigitte

This set of heroes marks the third week of hero bans for Overwatch Competitive Season 21. The first week banned Orisa, Baptiste, Mei, and Hanzo, while the second week banned Reinhardt, Moira, Ana, and Reaper.

Fan response to the feature has varied week to week according to which heroes are banned, indicating frustration not with the system itself but with being unable to play their heroes of choice. Week one saw players rejoice at the prospect of a Mei-free game, while week two garnered resentment for removing Ana from the lineup.

Blizzard has yet to share its own stance on whether the hero rotations are achieving their intended purpose.
