You should change the cooldown value for Defense Matrix now that it's no longer 6 seconds

Hi, just FYI whichever ad service you're using on this site cause my Android device to do a full page redirect so I couldn't even read your content. The only way I could get it to behave was to 'stop' loading the page in Chrome with the little X button, which stopped the redirect script dead!

Now that that's over with - One thing I've not seen any guide suggest is that D.Va's primary weapons are essentially just 'automatic shotguns'. You've covered the damage drop-off concept well, but on paper, 'fusion cannons' don't represent their function.

If they were called that from the get go I'd have understood their purpose better :P

Sorry about that :( Do you have any additional information to provide us with? Like where you're browsing from and the exact page where you get redirected.

I'll let Vlad handle the rest of the comment.

Thanks for the Fusion Cannon suggestion. I'm making that update as we speak.

I don't know if it's useful enough to make the guide, but if D.Va is positioned close to an enemy Hanzo she can completely kill Dragonstrike with Defense Matrix. When Hanzo uses Dragonstrike it starts by firing a regular arrow. If D.Va has Defense Matrix activated it can shoot down the arrow and the rest of the ult doesn't trigger.

In this paragraph:

"The best way to get kills with Self-Destruct is to have the enemies incapacitated, stunned, or heavily distracted by your teammates. Here, we are thinking of abilities such as Zarya's Graviton Surge IconGraviton Surge, Reinhardt's Earthshatter IconEarthshatter, or Mei's Cryo-Freeze IconCryo-Freeze."

I think you meant to write Blizzard instead of Cryo-Freeze.

Hey, thanks for pointing that out. Fixing it now.

I think that is useful, but it kind of goes into general mechanics. I'd rather not add it for now :)

You don't need to take cover from self-destruct anymore, when they changed the timer from 4 seconds to 3 seconds on the blast, they also removed its capability to kill the person using it.

Also D.VA's Deffensiv Matrix if fully charged counters the entire roadhog ult. other fun fakt. IF a roadhog hooks a team mate and u as D.VA stan infront of them you can use ur deffensiv matrix to prevent the oneshot. basicly u can counter roadhog better then any other tank. since roadhog is off meta its not that big of a deal but he still is played in some games even comp. so it snice to know.

When you can counter a hero that much, it's always worth noting. Thanks for the comment!

Glad i  was able to help :D im a big fan of D.VA she is an incredible fun tank to play and very unique. if i may add another detail: D.VA is (in my opinion) much better in attack. Reason therefor is that a) she can kick deffending enemie players down from high ground wich can destroy the tactic they have or even kil them if u manage to kick them towards ur team. B) as u mentioned she is extremly good against sniper cause u can fly with Deffensiv matrix activated towards them. u can sort of clean the path and also backdoor enemies thx to her awesome mobility.

btw all in all great guide u made for D.VA and great page in general ive been using icy-veins for hearthstone AND world of warcraft since for ever :D keep it up guys :D

Glad to hear that you enjoy the site!

D.va can work very well on defense too, mainly due to her ultimate. There are very few heroes in the game that can completely isolate a team objective, ruin a setup of ultimates and so on, but D.va is one of them. Just as she can clear a point when attacking, she can come back from a team wipe and clear the point completely with her ult.

I agree that she is probably stronger on attack, but she is still a VERY capable tank on Defense.

You kind of rotate Reinhardt depending your own comp tbh. I hate playing reinhardt in a team that never needs to stand behind me (Widow, Hanzo, Torb, Junkrat, Pharah etc.). They can just sit in the wings and do what they do best, while I stand there and protect nobody. In those times, I'll take D.Va any day.

There is a way to kill a Pharah during her ultimate. Just fly to her, pop defensive matrix and see she kills herself via splash damage.

This is definitely possible, you just need to be careful of what you are sacrificing. You will almost certainly kill your mech while doing this and, given the use of Ana's ult on Soldier, you might expose your team to a full Soldier + Ana ult straight after with no mech to defend them.

Hey everyone!

We are currently working on re-doing and updating all of our Overwatch guides, with a new format to boot! The guides will be targeted towards all players, with tips being useful for new players and veterans alike, regardless of skill rating.

With this new update, you will also see guides created for the three heroes we currently do not have guides for (Orisa, Ana and Sombra).

For those wondering, I will be taking over the writing of the guides and you should see the first guides and updates being released in the near future.

Thanks for your patience!

      The previously announced change to how ties will be broken in competitive play, with players now needing to capture at least 33% of a point for the system to take effect, was implemented today, along with some fixes to the Uprising brawl and Game Browser, as well as Genji's Dragonblade getting a few adjustments and more bug fixes.
      It also seems that the patch added a pretty serious bug, making Blizzard disable D.Va in all regions for the moment:
      Placeholder for tweet 857807981660033024 Blizzard (source)
      GENERAL
      Competitive Play
      On Assault and Assault/Escort Maps, teams now need to capture at least 33% of the objective before the tie-breaking system is activated Developer Comments: When the new tie-breaking system was implemented on April 11, 2017, teams only needed to capture 1% to trigger the system. This occasionally resulted in confusing situations when games would end without a lot of information about how the point was captured, due to the brief capture time. To alleviate this problem, we’re requiring that teams progress past 33% before the tie-breaking system begins tracking progress. If neither team manages to cross 33%, the match will end in a draw.

      BUG FIXES
      General
      Fixed a crash that could occur during the end-of-round screen

      Jeff Kaplan took to the forums to talk about plans for new maps this year, and while he did mention at least 6 that are being worked on, 3 fit into the standard Quick Match and Competitive systems and are already in advanced testing stages, with 3 more presumably for the Arcade in earlier stages of development. The post came in reply to a user's question on whether only two maps a year, as we've gotten so far (Oasis and Eichenwalde), was enough to sustain the game in the long term.
      Jeff Kaplan (source)
      We currently have 3 maps in development, all past the initial playtesting phase that are "standard" maps (QP/Comp). While something could always change, all 3 of those are looking likely for a release this year.
      We also have 3 non-standard maps in development (these won't go in QP/Comp).
      We also have a few other experiments going on.
      Hopefully this will satisfy some of what you're looking for. We want to play on these maps as badly as you guys do. We'll work as fast as we can!
