Overwatch League Hero Bans are set for the June Joust.

Overwatch League will be banning heroes for the rest of the event of June Joust. Two DPS, one Tank, and one support hero will be out of the Joust. The heroes selected to be benched are the ones who have been picked the least for the game that made them eligible for the ban.

Overwatch League Hero Bans: What are the Banned Heroes for June Joust?

The heroes selected for the ban are Tracer, Sombra, Reinhardt, and Zenyatta who are great heroes that disrupt team movements. The backlines of teams won't be flanked by Tracer and Sombra, no great cover from Reinhardt, and no aggressive support from Zenyatta with counter-offensive pushes from his ultimate.

Only heroes that were played regularly—10% or more pick rate—were eligible. No hero can be removed more than once during the season.
