9 posts in this topic

D.Va is entering the Nexus soon and Blizzard released an official spotlight, previewing her abilities, strength and weaknesses.

Hana Song, also known as “D.Va,” is both a world champion professional gamer and a burgeoning global icon. As a member of South Korea’s elite MEKA unit, she fights to protect her homeland from the colossal omnic threat lurking within the East China Sea. Now making her debut in the Nexus, enemies will soon find that this superstar and her MEKA together make one powerful combo. Nerf this!

I am so unbelievably hyped for this, but I never could have guessed those two ultimates.

Bunny Hop: from Emote to fucking Heroic. Who would have thought?

Honestly, I think she will be very broken. Two health bars, and that Booster to Self-Destruct will be wiping whole teams if well timed.

Yeah, I was REALLY surprised the self destruct isn't even a heroic! Not sure I like the heroic being completely tied to which "form" you are in. That means her base kit has to be RIDICULOUS, otherwise you have half a hero if you go pilot build.

I do think as a lane bruiser she will be insane due to the two health bars and booster escape. She might be the strongest bully in the game now.

At least it looks like she will be somewhat difficult to play. The Defence Matrix looks like an ability requiring strong positioning. I am pretty sure new players will spam Self Destruct, which will usually cost them their lives. However, at higher skill brackets, I am not sure whether I want to see her at all.

Err... I like her concept and all, but isn't double health bar a bit unhealthy? As I can remember, one of the first major hots balancing stages was about removing derp double bars from the game (hello tychus, rehgar.) And now here we go again? Please don't tell me about d.va fragility in the pilot mode. If she has murky-like health pool in pilot mode, I see literally no point in talenting into it. Fk I'm so confused about buying her now.

Isn't having two health bars is actually twice as healthy? (Yes, I'll see myself out.)

Well you should always wait, unless there is a pre-order bonus. I don't know whether there is one, most likely not, so I suggest you to wait and see how she works in the game before making the decision to purchase her or not.

I am personally excited to see and play as D.Va.  She is one of my favorite OW heroes and her kit looks fun and challenging to play.

Has any of you tried her in PTR yet? I'm curious to see how she plays, how much health, damage, etc.
