D.va is getting a buff to her boosters in the next Overwatch PTR cycle

D.va’s back in the fight.

The hero is getting a buff to her thrusters on the next PTR cycle, Overwatch developer Josh Noh confirmed in the Blizzard Forums. The skill’s cooldown will be shortened, which will greatly increase the character’s mobility.

“We’ve actually been playtesting a Boosters cooldown reduction recently,” Josh said. “It sounded kind of intimidating on paper (tested a 3 sec CD first) but in practice hasn’t been that crazy and allows D.Va to play the midfield more freely, which works well with the current 10 meter Defense Matrix range.”

Still Waiting For The DVA buff

About the critbox, they either could reduce it’s size, effectively making it harder to hit, or to give her a passive, that she takes 50% extra damage when critted instead of 100%. Seeing as there’s no risk of missing the shot (meaning you’ll get at least a normal shot), could be worth a try.

The change is coming to the PTR, but it’s yet unclear how big the cooldown reduction will be. All that’s confirmed is that “some version should make it to the next PTR cycle,” which will also be released on an unspecified date.
