Overwatch Season 2020 Map Pool

Since BlizzCon 2019, each competitive season includes its own map pool. Among all the existing maps, only 12 make it each season. During Overwatch Season 20, players fight on three maps of each kind: assault, escort, control, or hybrid.

The map pool for Season 20 is as follows:

Assault:

  • Temple of Anubis
  • Volskaya Industries
  • Hanamura

Escort:

  • Dorado
  • Havana
  • Rialto

Control:

  • Ilios
  • Oasis
  • Busan

Hybrid:

  • King's Row
  • Numbani
  • Eichenwalde

Dorado and Rialto replace Gibraltar and Route 66 in the Escort map pool. For the Control maps, Oasis and Ilios take Lijiang Tower and Nepal’s spots. Finally, Hollywood leaves its place for Numbani among the Hybrid maps.

Hanamura, Anubis and Volskaya Industries are once again in the map pool, while Paris and Horizon Lunar Colony are on the sidelines for the second consecutive time. As these last two maps are criticized by the community, their absence in the map pool may hint at a rework. Season 21 should unveil some truth about this rumor, and whether or not players will still rage when picking one of these maps

Competitive Points

Players have separate ratings for each role: damage, support, and tank. Competitive points are allocated separately for each of these roles at the end of Overwatch Season 20, depending on the player’s maximum ranking on this position.

Bronze (1-1499): 25 points

Silver (1500-1999): 50 points

Gold (2000-2499): 100 points

Platinum (2500-2999): 200 points

Diamond (3000-3499): 300 points

Master (3500-3999): 450 points

Grandmaster (> 4000 points): 650 points

Season 20 End Date

According to Blizzard, the end of the Overwatch Competitive Season 20 is scheduled for March 4 - 5, 2020. Season 21 is expected to start around March 6 - 7, 2020. However, there is no official release date yet.
