Blizzard decides to change how Hero Pools will work. Learn more about the new operation of the hero selection tool for Overwatch matches. Blizzard removes Hero Pools

In late January this year, Blizzard released a new feature that Overwatch players were asking for, which is a hero selection/banning system. This is the Hero Pool that allows you to choose the heroes that cannot be selected to play in the game’s matches for a week. Over time, this decision ended up causing discouragement, a sadness, for professional and regular players, causing the studio to decide to withdraw the system from competitive mode indefinitely, so Blizzard removes Hero Pools.

The announcement of the Hero Pools withdrawal was made in a recent post on the Blizzard forum. In the text, it was said that the Hero Pool, used regularly to ban a small group of heroes each week in competitive and professional play, is being withdrawn from competitive mode indefinitely. The studio said:

“Initially, we implemented Hero Pools to solve problems with stagnant goals and keep games exciting and up to date. However, we found that the introduction of the Experimental Card and increased updates to the balance of heroes helped us work towards a healthy goal and changeable in Competitive Play, without the need to disable heroes. “

However, Hero Pools is not leaving the Overwatch League. However, now the system will work in a slightly different way, where the decision to withdraw certain heroes lasted two weeks instead of one. In addition, the feature will be disabled during tournaments and a week before competitions begin.

Hero Pools proved to be very inconvenient for professional teams, who had to adapt to reach a new goal each week, since the list of heroes always changed during this period. Although the groups of selected heroes brought a good variety, diversification, of characters, during the battles, it ended up leading to the exhaustion of some players of the teams.
