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:
- Temple of Anubis
- Volskaya Industries
- King's Row
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
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
