Overwatch is getting hero bans, but Blizzard will pick them, not you

Bans in games like Rainbow Six Siege and Heroes of the Storm enable players or teams to exclude characters at the start of matches, preventing opponents from selecting ones who dominate specific maps or the overall meta. Overwatch fans have been calling for a similar system in their game of choice for some time now, but so far Blizzard has opted against doing so. 

That will change during Overwatch Season 21, however. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan revealed in today’s developer update video that Blizzard is implementing a “Hero Pool” system, similar to bans, and it’s coming to Competitive Play. The big difference is that instead of banning characters on a per-match basis, excluded heroes will be selected by Blizzard every week, in order to “prevent players from stagnating on any one meta too long.”
