McCree, Widowmaker, Wrecking Ball and Mercy are the heroes who were banned from Overwatch for the week of April 27.
It is now a tradition. A selection of heroes every week; Overwatch forbids two DPS, one tank and one support. When the hero pools used to differ between the Overwatch League, rivals, and competitive play, Blizzard decided earlier this month to keep a single draft and ban the same heroes for all players .

This is the third time that these heroes have been in the hero pool to despair hitscan players.
To counter Pharah and Echo, some heroes can still do the job. Soldier: 76 became more popular when McCree and Widowmaker were last banned, including Ashe  – whose usefulness as a hit hero is often discussed in comparison to McCree's stunning or Widowmakers efficiency.
Echo players can use the new hero again
The joy of Echo in competitive games have was in short – a week after taking her first steps in Overwatch, Echo was banned from the Overwatch League and competitive games. With this new hero pool the ban is lifted and Echo is back .
Her main counter McCree and widowmaker will not be able to stop her this week because they have not made it past the hero pool. Unfortunately, it is also their healing duo Mercy. This shouldn't prevent Echo players from performing well this week, as is eagerly awaiting the return of Hero 32 .
Mercy won't be here to babysit
If McCree and Widowmaker aren't none Longer threats to flying heroes don't mean Pharah will roam the sky again this week. Your support partner Mercy is out for the week of April 27th. If Ana or Baptiste can reach Pharah to heal them, the projectile hero is nowhere near as powerful or useful without Mercy.
Mercy's disappearance this week will most likely be felt by Echo players. The duo Mercy / Echo proved powerful because Mercy Echo can babysit so the IA can kill an entire team without worrying about their own survival.
wrecking ball, an expendable hero?
Of all the heroes banned this week, Wrecking Ball is the one with the least impact on upcoming games. McCree and Widowmaker are the most powerful hitscan heroes in Overwatch, while Mercy is essential for some strategies and works well with flying heroes. On the other hand, wrecking ball is useful, but not mandatory.
Double shields work well, and with Winston and D.Va. Wrecking Ball is more annoying to the opponents than the central part of the team composition.
This hero pool affects Overwatch League, rivals, and competitive games from April 27 to May 4.
