Overwatch developers, Blizzard, are preparing for a much-needed rework for D.Va. The new update will change her ultimate ability and make a number of other changes to how she works in-game.
For a long time, players have complained about how overpowered D.Va was. As it is right now, D.Va starts the game as an off-tank, with lots of health points and a considerable amount of damage. On its own, the first form of D.Va can be dealt with without too much difficulty.
However, when D.VA loses her mech and hops on foot, her fast movement speed and her ridiculously small hitboxes make her a nightmare to deal with.
The biggest problem with D.Va, however, is without a doubt her Defense Matrix ability. With Defense Matrix, D.Va can protect herself and others from incoming damage. In the rework, Defense Matrix will get a nerf - it will last for half as long.
To balance out the nerf, D.Va will be given a new ability that will help her to play more aggressively.
The new ability is called Micro Missiles and description about the ability from Blizzard has been provided below.
"D.Va launches a long salvo of small missiles that explode on impact, dealing damage in a small radius around them. This ability can be used while using her other abilities or firing her Fusion Cannons."
What are your thoughts on these new changes? Do you think Blizzard is moving D.Va in the right direction, or did they make the wrong move?
