D.Va


Trivia

  • Her name is a play on the word "Diva", meaning a female celebrity.
  • The stylization of her name is reminiscent of Korean pop idols, who often adopt pseudonyms to stand out. In the Korean version of the game, D.Va`s name is the only name not in Hangul, reflective of the romanization of these idols` names. This makes sense considering D.Va is a Korean idol through her fame playing StarCraft.
  • The way her name has a prefix "D." is reminiscent of the way eSports players have an abbreviated team tag before their names.
  • D.Va`s suit has sponsors all over it, which is a reference to the same advertising style of sponsors in Korean eSports.
  • Charlett Chung, who is D.Va`s English voice actor, has commented positively on her character, commenting "in terms of representation of Asian-American characters in video games, particularly women, they might be over-sexualized - and I don`t know if I`m being too candid here - I feel like D.Va is more of a real person. She happens to have some sex appeal, but that`s not why she`s in the game. She`s not there to be an exotic lotus."
  • D.Va is used as the symbol for the National D.Va Association, a progressive feminist movement composed of Overwatch fans. The group achieved international notability after a photograph of their flag—featuring D.Va`s bunny-ears logo—was photographed in a news report for an international Women`s Mar. event in Seoul on Jan. 21st, 2017. Based in South Korea, the group chose D.Va as its symbol owing to an earlier incident where professional teenage Overwatch player Geguri was accused of cheating owing to an eighty percent win rate; which some believed was "impossible" for girls to achieve. The group distributes stickers of D.Va`s bunny logo, among other paraphernalia. It plans on finding new ways to use Overwatch as a tool for spreading its message.

  • As part of her promotion and lore, Blizzard created a brief StarCraft II WCS profile, which revealed her as a Random player who became the top-ranked player in the world when she was 16 and went undefeated over the next three years before she was drafted.

Strategy

D.Va is a unique tank with some mobility. With very high health and Boosters, she can close a gap to the enemy with ease. She has high damage output at close-range, making her a strong fighter in 1-on-1 match. Her Defense Matrix is useful against all incoming-projectiles, protecting her teammates from enemy fire. She is a dangerous ganker in tank class, dealing consistent damage to the enemy. Self-Destruct will wipe all opponents within the blast area. Be that as it may, she doesn`t have an extended barrier to properly protect her team like Reinhardt. She is also slow while firing, allowing the enemy to outrun her to disengage or move around her to distract her aiming. Fusion Cannons are ineffective at anything further than medium-range, makes her being outranged by the enemy before she even has a chance to close a gap with Boosters.

Weapons & Abilities

  • Self-Destruct (Ultimate): The ultimate of D.Va`s mech. D.Va herself will eject from a mech, then her mech will begin to detonate itself within 3 seconds. It deals massive damage upon explosion on a very large area around it.
    • The mech will receive any momentum from the Boosters if used prior to activating Self-Destruct.
    • If the mech doesn`t explode, D.Va will not gain a Call Mech`s full charge.
    • The blast creates a strong knockback on the survived opponents, sometimes launching them into a pit or off a cliff.
    • All covers will block the damage from Self-Destruct entirely, even a light post that is large enough to cover the hero size will makes them survive the blast.

General Strategies

  • It is not recommended to play D.Va as the sole tank on your team. Solo-tanking with her is extremely difficult. She can`t solo an entire enemy team by herself like McCree or Genji, and she can`t provide extended cover like Reinhardt, but she can do one right after another in short, well-timed bursts.
  • Strategize where and when to place a Self-Destructing Mech. The 3 seconds countdown of Self-Destruct is long enough for the enemies to find a cover or get behind a friendly Barrier. Another effective tool is use Boosters before Self-Destruct to send the Ultimate out from a blind spot on a place where there is less cover to provide.
  • If you melee attack an enemy player while D.Va`s Boosters are active, you will deal greatly increased knockback to the target allowing easy environmental kills.
  • Even though Defense Matrix will destroy all projectiles, it will not absorb beams such as Zarya`s Particle Cannon, Mei`s Endothermic Blaster, Symmetra`s Photon Projector and Sentry turret fire, along with Winston`s Tesla Cannon.
  • D.Va has a large critbox in front of her mech (the cockpit). You will receive critical shot easier than most heroes, so avoid turning your mech to face the enemy`s fires without Defense Matrix active.
  • If you activate D.Va`s Boosters ability and move onto an enemy player, you will deal damage in addition to knocking them back. If an opponent is low in health, this can be a faster way to kill them than firing her cannons, but it carries the risk of removing her only means of escaping danger.
  • When out of the suit, D.Va`s primary goal is to score as many headshots as possible, as fast as possible, to call her next mech. You may want to target a distant Roadhog to regain your ultimate charge.
