What to Expect in Episode 6

After months of speculation and leaks, it has been confirmed that the new map coming in episode 6 is Lotus.

The new map is set in Omega Earth's India and is inspired by Indian stepwells and rock-cut Dravidian Architecture.


New mechanics have also been added to the game to make the map more fun and exciting.

The Lotus-only queue will only be playable in Swiftplay mode for one week and then goes into the competitive and Unrated map rotation.

There are also updates to the map rotation, smaller changes to maps, and a big nerf coming to Omen.

This hasn't been received well by the community.
