Overwatch Team Testing Big Changes To D.Va

Blizzard principal designer Geoff Goodman took to the Overwatch forums on Battle.net to discuss some of the changes that Blizzard has been tinkering with for D.Va. Goodman appeared in a thread titled "D.Va Rework ideas thread" where several community members were discussing how they'd propose Blizzard shuffle things up with the mech-based character. Goodman began by saying that the team has been working on changes internally for a while now, before outlining what some of the proposed alterations are. You can see the changes in his words below:
  • Defense Matrix: Energy drain increased by 2x. This means her effective uptime for this ability has been reduced by 50%.
  • Boosters: D.Va can now use her Fusion Cannons while flying.
  • New ability – Micro Missiles: 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.

These are just proposed changes, and that when these changes make it to players, they might be different. Goodman says he hopes that Blizzard can get a new PTR up soon for PC players to check out these changes.
