Skulz's Overwatch Competitive Hero Tier List July 2018

Skulz's Overwatch Competitive Hero Tier List July 2018

The Overwatch Competitive Hero Tier List for July 2018 is ready. All the heroes are split in groups based on their popularity in pro games.

All heroes are arranged in six tiers based on their time played in pro games. The usage rate in each map is helpful to understand in which battlefield a hero shines the most.

The requisites for each tier never change. The goal is offering a neutral comparison that shows how the meta evolves over time.

The win rate has no effect on the tiers. The tiers depend only on the hero usage time, and aren't affected either by the win rate of a hero or by their performance in pub matches.

No personal opinions. Every month, we will see which heroes raised or declined in rank solely through the statistics.

Only stats from the Overwatch League. Overwatch Contenders and any other tournament are not considered.
