The mode implements the “Lockout” rule, which means that once a team wins with a certain hero, that hero becomes unavailable to the team for the remainder of the game’s match. Blizzard has made all the Elimination maps available to play throughout the season, and even added Ayutthaya as an extra map.
Lockouts will force players to show off their skills as a variety of heroes, as they’ll have to switch in and out to keep winning.
