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.

agreed! its just i rather play zarya / reinhardt combo in deff because it guarantees more sustenance in my opinion :3 but yeah u r totaly right :)

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.

      Here come the patch notes for today's update, featuring the already announced Anniversary event, but also bringing the biggest update to Overwatch in a long time to live servers - the Workshop has arrived! You can check out a detailed walkthrough for the new tool here.
      Baptiste and Hammond also receive some fixes to how their abilities interact with moving platforms and there's a whole lot of bug fixes as usual.

      New Seasonal Event: Overwatch Anniversary 2019
      Celebrate Overwatch’s third anniversary with brand new items, including Legendary and Epic skins like Riot Police Brigitte, Academy D.Va, Carbon Fiber Doomfist, Honeydew Mei, Orbital Pharah, Gargoyle Winston, and many more! Did you miss any Overwatch festivities over the previous years? Don’t worry—you’ll be able to unlock items from past events using credits (or by opening Loot Boxes!) Relive the thrill of previous seasonal brawls in the Arcade, with a brawl of the day rotating throughout the Anniversary celebration. Thank you so much for playing Overwatch with us over the past three years! Your continued support and enthusiasm help drive us to keep creating. We look forward to celebrating with you in-game!
      Workshop
      We’re excited to share a new in-game feature called the Workshop! The Workshop greatly expands the game customization features available in the Game Browser by providing a simplified game scripting system. Enhance the Overwatch game modes you know and love with new game rules, new victory conditions, adjustments to the hero movement and abilities, and much more. Once you’ve designed an awesome new game mode, create a code to share it with your friends or the whole community*! To get started using the Workshop, see our Workshop blog post. We’re excited to see what you come up with! (* Codes created in China cannot be shared with the rest of the world. Codes created outside of China can’t be used by players in China.) Note that Workshop is a complex feature that we’re still iterating on, so we may need to adjust or turn it off as we work to improve it. Please post any questions or issues in the Workshop forum.
