Team composition, often shortened to team comp or comp, is the term describing the composition of different heroes on a team.

Overview[]

Team composition is the makeup of a team's hero selections and the roles they play. A common part of Competitive Play, team composition plays an essential role in gameplay. A successful composition can determine the fate of a match.

Types[]

The most common type of team composition is two Damage heroes (at least one hitscan), two Tank heroes (at least one shield), and two Support heroes (at least one direct healer). Successful team compositions can maximize the teams' overall efficiency. This type of composition is the most widely supported composition. Some types of compositions are not supported and even frowned upon.

An example of a good composition includes:
