Watchpoint Radio #75: There’s a New DPS in Town
It seems that D.Va can’t just sit in one role. Since Overwatch launched D.Va’s job has changed three times it would seem. Bully to damage mitigation, and now, DPS. While her Defense Matrix took a bit hit, Blizzard has given D.Va the ability to output a ton of damage — and the community is using it. This change is causing problem for shield users, but maybe they just need time to adjust to the new D.Va.
We also dig into some upcoming changes to the PTR that will punish many heroes by completely removing their ult charge if they are interrupted when activating their ultimate. Genji, Reinhardt, and Lucio seem to be the most affected, as their animations take a bit longer. Hanzo’s dance before his ultimate isn’t helping him either.
We also get into Blizzards recent anti-toxicity efforts, an upcoming Zarya comic, and some bugs and exploits that have been flying around.
