Plz Buff D.VA

General Discussion
She needs probably a small buff. Either her explosion to be more threatening so enemy team doesnt ignore it, either a sustain mechanic so she can be a kind of solo laner. She is so fun to play but you cant pick her in the current meta .

sorry
Dva is absolutely ok. Maybe just a very tiny dmg increase on her AA.
D.Va is mostly fine, the only thing I would change is buff the mekas aa damage against heroes (only heroes, her lane clear is fine already due to the splash, but her damage against heroes is barely noticeable).
She needs all her level 1 talents not named rush down rebalanced. They are awful compared to rush down. the cd reduction on boosters is too good to pass up.

She's just so attractive to a certain sub-segment of the male population. Can you not dis us because we like her like that?
Do you ever see D.Va in competitive play? I thought so.
delete D.Va so she can do better by doing nothing
Would be cool along the remaining specialists, rexxar, chen and illidan.
D.Va is the bruiser that loses to all solo laners, loses most 1v1, cant take camps effectively, can usually win a fight after losing her mech, so easy to get hard countered and even if she didn't get countered her impact is very little.

At one point she was decent but with the addition of new heroes she became useless. Stukov silence ruins her completely especially since she moves with 85% speed. Heroes with invulnerability such as Fenix and Maiev and other heroes with protection and stasis just makes her self destruct good for wave clear.

She does not need "a little buff" she needs a rework.
+1
Yes. Please make dva op. She is my most played hero in HL and I want to keep my 100% win rate going with her into next season.
Maybe something in the lines of: if you only hit 1 hero in meka mode you get % more attack?
D.va doesn't have the damage of a bruiser or the durability of a tank.

She is big, she is clunky, she is slow.

She barely does AA damage.

Her knockback is pitiful and directly impacts her mobility (you don't get the talented reduced CD if you deal damage).

Her heroic barely does anything for meaningful zoning, it forces people out of an area for a stellar four seconds, but is that really different than landing Malfurion roots in a chokepoint or something? It also makes her exceedingly weak to dive compositions, you can blow Pilot up in four seconds.

Her MEKA gets shut down, her escape as a Pilot is late-game, it takes a bad team to group enough to let Big Shot trigger an instant-reset.

Her Bunny Hop is supposed to be viable to her other heroic, just like Auriel's Resurrect is equal to her Aegis or Sylvanas' Mind Control is equal to her Silencing Arrow... Except not so much.

Really the only thing D.va brings is amazing anti-burst in terms of Defense Matrix, but she loses out to sustain hard (unfortunately current releases are geared towards sustain AA), this usually makes D.va a reasonable anti-mage if you're catching Jaina during Icy Veins or Chromie during her Loop combo, but compromises D.va's position enough that she can get collapsed on or stunned.

I like D.va in theory, I have her to level 25-ish, but everything she does feels horrible.
I think that Blizzard missed out on an opportunity if they ever want to push the multiclass again.

D.va in OW basically never wants to leave her mech, while in HotS she has much better DPS in pilot mode when talented that way. So she has her DPS and tank form.

Also, if she specs for pilot form, she should be able to leave her mech on her own without self destruct or getting killed. Also bunny hop could use some work since it pales in comparison to the other heroic most of the time.

But that's just my opinion.

one of the only showcasings of good execution of D.va. It could be way better honestly, but they had the idea in the draft of executing a Self Destruct wombo and they did it 3x back to back for a win. Didn't really matter who they were going up against, they were going to do it, and it worked. That wasn't taking much of Defense Matrix value into account at all, either.

@OP: I wouldn't mind some kind of additional threat output of either her AA damage, or adding in a Melee option like Tracer's, or adding in her rockets that were added to her OW kit... Or reworking the balance in damage numbers between her pilot form and mech form and just... Idk, making her more logistically feasible. As it is, she can provide a crapton of value against certain heroes with Defense Matrix (melee, lifesteal, combo-based, burst, telegraphed), and her Self Destruct can basically do three things:

- Split a teamfight to try to win against half of a team
- Zone enemy team off of a capture point
- Provide insane burst damage in a wombo that few people really ever try to setup for (Dude, try Deckard with D.va, honestly, it's gonna change the way you feel when you wake up in the mornings)
D. Va is fine. Good D. Va players have no problems with her at all. She loses her mech? Pew Pew its back again in less than a hearthbeat.

Totally get gud issue here.
What D.Va need is a talent rework not a direct "buff" in her numbers

You got your first 3 tiers which is mostly focused on her W (Defence Matrix) the absolute worst talent in level 1 from any character (Crash Course)

She has two main abilities that are channeled and the worst part is that you dont change her playstyle at all with the exception of her heroic choices.

For some reason they also thought it would be really fun to have all of her pilot D.Va talents on the same tier without any way to combine them.

All of her abilities in pilot form have an absurd cooldown one of them being a level 20 which makes me wonder why would you pick that over pewpewpew or MekaFall.

D.Va has a lot of problems but I assure you her AA damage and health ain't one of them.

D.Va is dead the moment she is forced out of her meka if the enemy has any stuns at all.
