Last PTR patch is most stupid think for long time. What did they do? Well, they just eliminate D.va. Even armor rework was TOO mach for her but 2 sec cd for DM is just death sentence. Now the matrix is essentially disposable, as it used to be for a very long time. When you have 2 sec duration and 2 sec cd best what you can do is just use all 2 sec to once eat big damage. 2 sec is just as much as an ordinary DD needs to destroy your mech… New D.va is absolutely helpless agains Tracer, Reaper, Hanzo and etc. She can’t come out from under the shields.
But the funny thing is that this will not stop goats! At high level D.va player can adapt or just always stand behind the Rein. And even if Dюva disappears completely, goats comp will remain. We already saw goats with Mei, goats with DF, goats with Rein/Winston. D.va is not the key character for goats, she is the second in a row to replace after switching Rain to Winston.
So for esports this changes is nothing. But for ordinary players it is very very significant. Like i sayd D.va will just die. She already needs more skills to fight with any DD 1v1. Because for dealing real damage she requested good chasing strafed target. If you look at the game the best D.va players, you will notice that even for them it is a problem. At the same time even a bronze player gets a crit from each shot on D.va. She is most balanced hero now: she can take almost everybody, but almost everybody can take her, she is strong and weak at the same time.
So this nerf will not improve the situation with goats but kill regular D.va. you must do the opposite! Nerf something what important for pro. For example you can make graviton, dragon strike and etc. something like objects (like Sym’s turrets) not projectile, so D.va can’t eat this.
P.S. Bring D.va back to life, developers, i will never forgive you for that!
