Push The Point #46: Last Minute Changes

February 7th, 2020

We’re only a couple of days out from the start of Season 3 and there’s still even more news to discuss! On Episode 46, we cover this week’s news stories, including some new additions to the Atlanta Reign, news concerning February’s Chinesese Homestands, and more!

We go on to discuss the huge announcement of Hero Pools in Competitive and Professional Play. We discuss the huge impact this change will have on coaching strategy and team composition in 2020, and theorize some teams that may be affected. We also discuss what heroes we may see banned frequently and debate how seriously competition will be affected.

We wrap up with a quick summary of the retail patch, and compare it to last week’s ptr. We discuss the effect these changes will have for Week 1 of OWL, and theorize potential directions for further patching.
