Annunciate diverse importanti modifiche a D.VaWhatsApp
Attraverso un recente post sul forum ufficiale di Overwatch, il Principal Designer Geoff Goodman ha comunicato che diverse modifiche sono in arrivo per il celebre eroe D.Va!
Le modifiche previste dovrebbero andare a colpire, tra le altre cose, la Defense Matrix, Boosters e la nuova abilità Micro Missiles grazie alla quale D.Va sparerà una serie di piccoli missili che esploderanno all’impatto andando a colpire anche ad area in una piccola zona attorno al luogo d’impatto.
Tutto questo è da ricondurre principalmente ad un motivo: Blizz vuole una D.Va maggiormente aggressiva.
Cosa ne pensate delle modifiche? Di seguito troverete il post ufficiale:
Actually, we’ve made some significant changes to D.Va internally and have been testing them for a while now. Here are the changes we’ve made:
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.
The combination of these changes allow her to play more aggressively and deal more damage, at the cost of being able to Defense Matrix as often as before. Defense Matrix still remains an extremely powerful tool when timed correctly, but the reduced uptime means D.Va won’t be able to use it nearly as often overall.
Her new Micro Missiles ability in combination with her ability to fire while flying allow for some more aggressive play, as well as opening up some new options versus heroes such as Pharah.
Overall the goal here is to reduce her reliance on Defense Matrix and make her more fun to play. As far as balancing goes, we want to nerf Defense Matrix as an ability, not D.Va as a hero.
She has been a ton of fun to play with these changes, and we’re looking forward you letting you guys play with them as well. Hopefully we’ll have a new PTR up soon!
